As we apply Productive Struggle in a fun, interactive and gamified way, we create the perfect environment to apply any basketball content to sportscasting, which makes a great sustainable experiential learning product.
Sudents emerge stronger in the knowledge of the game.
Hoopcasters is the perfect collaboration between basketball and sportscasting. It is designed to teach young people the science of basketball and the how-to’s of sportscasting. HC gives young basketball players an edge in playing the game by teaching some of the details and nuances of advanced game play.
We offer opportunities in broadcasting to those interested in the game, but who may not necessarily want to play the sport.
Offered online, HC is engaging, interactive, and empowers young people to approach basketball and the broadcast of the game in new and exciting ways. Demystifying the sport, broadcast journalism, and what it takes to successfully function in either, HC gives participants special insights into team and collaborative environments.
1. It's an edtech program merging Basketball I.Q. and Sportscasting training for youth using game-based learning.
2. Develop the skills to deliver play-by-play and color commentary for live action basketball games.
3. Explore 2 worlds at the same time: Basketball & Sportscasting.
4. If you love basketball, or just want to learn more about the sport and the broadcast of the game, Hoopcasters is for you!
5. Take some time to look at all the career opportunities connected to basketball and sportscasting.
While the game of basketball is a team sport and broadcasting delivers content through a crew working together, HC takes those efforts a step further to highlight the partnership of both basketball and broadcasting to produce a unique end product...the broadcast of a basketball game by sportscasters.
Check out these sample questions below.
Productive Struggle, is known as the process of effortful learning, that develops grit, toughness, and creative thinking skills.
We don’t teach drills... Instead, we focus on the science of the game. When youth basketball players face problems they don't immediately know how to solve; like on one of our video questions or assessments, players are given time to think through their options.
We don't want them to quit. Right?
Productive struggle increases basketball IQ, and love for the game.
We're also teaching kids 11-14 years old basketball I.Q., journalism, and sportscasting. We’ve created a fun, interactive, online experience that keeps kids safe and allows them to learn in a unique edtech environment that includes gamification and game-based learning.
There are multiple potential career pathways that emerge from participating in HC aside from playing the game. Our core programs are rated “Five Stars” and are able to capture and sustain students' attention.
