Hey there, I’m Coach John Berry

Just like many of you, I love coaching basketball, and I’m fanatically passionate about our youth.

I’m a basketball coach, motivation speaker, author, husband and father. In addition, I’m the owner and founder of Youth Hoops Basketball Camps, Youth Hoops Academy and RunningBasketballCamps.com blog.

I originally founded Youth Hoops Basketball Camps (YHBC) in 2008 for the purposes of getting out of debt. After a few years, YHBC has touched tens of thousands of kids in a very positive way, on and off the court. With the creation of Youth Hoops Academy (YHA), we are now actively helping coaches run their own basketball camps in their communities.

Our mission is simple: we want other basketball coaches (worldwide) to have the same transformational impact on kids (on and off the court) that we’re having.


About Us

RunningBasketballCamps.com was founded with the idea of providing valuable basketball camp business content to coaches, and inspirational life lessons to sports enthusiasts (regardless of sport).

Our goal is to give basketball coaches practical insights (and resources) on running a basketball camp business, and motivational messages that will inspire them to be the best version of themselves.
