Hear what Coach Hines has to say about his journey by Gary Morrison

Hoops N Sand (HNS) is a youth training program owned and operated by Samuel Hines, a former professional basketball player. Samuel Hines’ passion for children influenced him to start HNS, formerly known as Up With Kids Sports (UWKS). Coach Hines’ programs are designed to provide instruction in fundamental basketball and volleyball skills and educate, elevate, and empower our youth through after school enrichment programs, clinics/camps, and group or private coaching.

In 2014 HNS opened its’ own state-of-the-art training facility in Cumming, Georgia. The 8,800 square foot facility houses a full-size basketball court, a half-size basketball court, a full-size volleyball hard court, and a sand volleyball court.

Hoops N Sand is also a unique and fun entertainment facility for both kids and adults! Space can be reserved for birthday parties, field trips, corporate meetings, team building exercises, or other gatherings. In addition, HNS can be rented for school/feeder team practices, clubs, or organizations.
