Brian Hahn

first_imgBrian Hahn recently resigned as the boys’ basketball coach at Pendleton Heights.  Although he has been quite successful in his 9 years as Pendleton Heights head coach, he wants to start a basketball academy in the Indianapolis area.According to several media reports Hahn believes that there is a need to teach basketball skills to all ages of kids from k-12 grades.  He plans to start this summer at a yet unnamed location with kids from 3rd grade and up.  If this is successful, he will eventually include all aged kids.His academy will operate for the 8 months that athletes are not involved in a high school program so that he will not interfere with the programs there.I wonder if this is an attempt to help young basketball players who do not want to go the AAU route or are not good enough to be recruited by an AAU coach?  Hahn eventually hopes to have enough kids enrolled to operate at 2 locations around Indianapolis.If my memory serves me correctly, Hahn played basketball at New Castle High School and later at Butler University.last_img read more
