Welcome to PPD Basketball

The Southeast’s premier basketball player development authority and destination for Professional basketball players and Student Athletes alike.


We welcome you to join the Pro Purpose family and take your game to the next level!


PPD-Hoops is based in Atlanta, GA serving athletes in the Metro Atlanta Area and the Southeastern United States. Head trainer Derrek Hamilton travels the US and abroad to work with College programs, high school teams, NBA players and players who are eligible for the draft. Coach “Ham” also has experience working with international teams looking to improve their programs.

One on One

We work with individuals that are looking to take their games to the next level. Whether you are a professional athlete that wants to maximize your career or an amateur looking to build a solid foundation we can help.

Small Groups

We host our own seasonal camps that help our clients stay tuned up and game ready. We also have packages for teams and groups. Let the PPD team take you through our drills and philosophy.

Pro Camp

This camp is for our current roster of professional players in the NBA and abroad. We also welcome prospective pros into these 8-week high-intensity camps. If you want to sharpen up your skills by playing against high level competition this is the camp for you.


Our showcase workouts allow coaches, agents, and scouts to find out who is game ready. These invite only sessions have helped some of our business side clients discover impact players.

Team Training

Let us come work with your team and program. We can add value by showing your squad what it will take to reach the next level. We will not only teach the physical part of the game but by using our training insights from pro athletes we teach the game ready mindset

National Teams

National teams choose PPD because we get the job done. Teams visit our facility so that we can get them on the same page. We pull out the pro playbook and give them a workout that will help them understand what “Game Ready” training is.
