Why did we call ourselves Planet Hoops? Well, our mission is to bring the world of basketball together so we felt that Planet Hoops would be a fitting name.
Basketball on our Planet is booming and we love this game as the saying goes.
We just want to give back and promote basketball to all fans and students of the game from Vilnius, Lithuania to Tokyo, Japan to Montivideo, Uruguay and all points in between.
We’re here to help and make your basketball information searching easy and rewarding. For more information about our founders please read below and make sure to have a great day!
Todd has played and coached basketball for over 30 years. Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Todd was a First Team All-Star in High School at Eric Hamber Secondary in 1983. He then went on to play University basketball at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby.
He is very proud to have played on scholarship for 4 years and to have traveled to many different countries. It was here where he developed a love for travel and ultimately went on to use his basketball experience to see the world.
This was the beginning of the concept of Planet Hoops. Todd has spent his career coaching elementary, high school, college, university and pro athletes in Canada, Germany, Austria and Australia.
He has seen the international game first hand and believes the future of basketball lies in the global game. Planet Hoops is devoted to promoting basketball worldwide and to helping kids of all ages to gain the same benefits he received from playing the best game in the world.

Bob is arguably one of the best players ever developed in Canada. Bob had a superb University career at Simon Fraser U in Canada ranking behind only Jay Triano and more recently Brent Charleton in all-time scoring.
Having had the privilege of playing with Bob for 4 years I can say he is the best player I have ever played with and also the nicest guy. He still plays competitively today and at age 41 is proud to have had 6 dunks in one recent summer league game.
