Dream. Plan. Achieve!
LIVE HOOPS is a nonprofit organization that focuses on assisting Arizona’s youth in improving their quality of life by using basketball to empower them to make better life decisions and continue their education. By using our educational, athletic/basketball, life skills, guidance counseling, and promotional programs we help youth in their complete transition from adolescents to college students and ultimately to solid contributing members of our communities. Our Opportunities program begins through development of life skills and also broadens the academic, collegiate, and athletic opportunities for any youth who participates in this program. As a result, increasing each youth's chance of continuing their education and achieving their goals.
LIVE HOOPS was founded in 2005 by Kelly and Mike Mills in Phoenix AZ. Upon seeing the need for assistance and guidance of youth, young student-athletes, and their parents, the Mills’ created LIVE HOOPS as a resource for these families. Through the Mills’ extensive management, career counseling, social services, personal development, and basketball experience have created innovative programs that have assisted hundreds of youth in the Valley over the years.
