The POWER Basketball Academy is the most comprehensive player development program in the area with a wide variety of basketball development options. From private workouts to team management and everything in between, our professional staff is knowledgeable, energetic, and creates a positive environment for players of all ages and skill levels to develop, learn, and enjoy the game of basketball. Simply, our goal for all players that come through our program is to leave with a greater understanding of the game of basketball, be able to perform skills at a higher level, have the tools to improve through their own practice, and love playing the game.
The academy is coordinated by Pat Coughlin, a Brookings native, who played basketball at the University of Sioux Falls and graduated in 2013. He has been an assistant with the POWER Basketball Academy since 2014 and worked with thousands of young athletes during that time.
The academy lead specialist is Kirk Hinrich, who was an All-American at Kansas, and played 13 seasons in the NBA.
