Kyle "Sir" Hines
I am very proud to be the principal sponsor of Team Hines Basketball Academy(THBA). THBA main focus is to use basketball as a vehicle to help develop and educate young student-athlete. THBA provides young students- athletes with the opportunity to travel and play against the best competition on the east coast. The main goal in mind, is to provide opportunities and exposure to colleges and universities that could ultimately lead to scholarships.
The game of basketball has afforded many opportunities for my brother (Tyler) and I too reached dreams that we could have never imagined. My biggest goal is to be a positive role model to young student-athletes so they too can use basketball as a vehicle to accomplish their dreams. I want to give a "Special Thanks" to the Team Hines Basketball Academy staff members, coaches, parents and players for allowing me to share my vision and to help make THBA an elite and successful program in South Jersey.
Sincerly, Kyle Hines
