Director of Pro Shot
"Theres a ton of recruiting websites, you know this quite well. Most just publicize players and really don't have any hands on regarding the development on that player. What if Middle School Elite did showcase camps where the most important aspect is improving that player (guard camp, shooting camp)"- Paul Hoover. We think it's a great idea!
Paul Hoover is considered one of the premiere shooting coaches in the United States. Coach Hoover, founder and director of Pro Shot Shooting System, has guided hundreds of collegiate and professional players in the art of shooting. Coach Hoover has also authored, “Pro Shooting Secrets” which is the largest and most in-depth shooting book to date. Considered a revolutionary book on shooting, it has been read by hundreds of collegiate and professional players and coaches.
Paul has also produced the successful DVD, “The Focused Shooter.”During the past three years, Coach Hoover and Pro Shot have traveled across the United States teaching shooting fundamentals. He has hosted “Pro Shooting Secrets” basketball camps and clinics throughout the United States and Canada (44 States and counting).

Paul has successfully head coached teams at all levels. He guided various high schools teams for 16 years in Southern California. During this span, he directed his teams to 300 wins and 12 league championships. Known for their excellent shooting ability, Coach Hoover’s teams set scoring records at four different schools.

"My shooting camps are the best. Every camp I put on I have a handful of players who have been to well know camps/clinics hosted by shooting coaches and trainers. I ask them...at the end of each camp tell me what camp is better...I have NEVER had one camper say the other camp is better", Hoover told me.
