About

The School of Handles Basketball Academy was founded by Joel Haywood, aka King Handles, in Vancouver, BC (Canada). He is a former professional basketball player and considered a streetball legend in the eyes of many.

Years of experience in both streetball and professional basketball have evolved his ball handling ability and taken his game to the next level. During his journey, King Handles continually noticed a lack of ball handling ability within the local youth basketball scene. He felt the need to improve upon this through sharing his knowledge on an elite training level. In doing so, it simultaneously allows Joel an opportunity to give back to his local community.

Helping athletes develop and realize their potential.

In the summer of 2019, the School of Handles hosted its first clinic outdoors in Vancouver, with a second summer camp in Burnaby. At present, the academy has grown to 3 indoor locations throughout Vancouver, the Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley. Clinics are held in North Vancouver (Game Ready Fitness), Langley (Langley Events Centre) and Richmond (Union Basketball Facility).

We believe that by combining certain streetball techniques with traditional organized basketball skills, it greatly assists in accelerating a child's basketball development. Among the many basketball skillsets and life lessons taught, academy participants can expect to learn how to beat defenders off the dribble, add unique moves to their offensive repertoire that are effective in either a streetball or an organized setting and gain a unique perspective when it comes to anticipating and reading plays, before they develop.

The School of Handles encourages camp participants to work hard and at the same time, enjoy training, while having fun playing the game of basketball. When Covid-19 is behind us all, we will be hosting events once a month, including 1v1 and 3v3 competitions. By the Spring of 2022, the School of Handles aims to have 2-3 elite travelling teams established.
