About Us

Hamilton’s basketball career started at Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York where he competed in the CHSAA’s Catholic League. At Holy Cross, he was invited to participate in Puerto Rico’s 16U National team. He would spend two years at Holy Cross before transferring to The Dwight School, a private school located in the heart of Manhattan, New York. At Dwight, he led the Lions to a New York City Championship and a New York State Playo Berth. There he achieved All State Honors and Daily News Best of the City recognition. Averaging 24.6 points per game (3rd best in New York state), while accumulating over 1,300 points in just two years. After graduating at Dwight, Kieran then went on to attend Williston Northampton in Massachusetts for a postgraduate year, going on to win a NEPSAC A Championship in a league notorious for breeding NBA caliber talent.

After his prep year, Kieran earned a full scholarship to the New York Institute of Technology. At Tech, he spent three-and-a-half seasons where he went on to score 1,150 points, ending his career amongst the best in school history in 3 pointers made (191) and steals (118). Before graduating, Kieran was drafted into Puerto Rico’s Professional League (Baloncesto Superior Nacional) by the Capitanes de Arecibo, being one of the few NCAA Division II players in 2019 to be selected. After two stints in the Puerto Rican league, Kieran has since started a career in personal training and has trained well over a thousand players. He would found Hamilton Hoops Academy a premier training organization stemming throughout the tri-state area helping kids hone in on intermediate and college level preparation.

 

In October of 2021, Kieran joined the John Jay College Bloodhounds as an Assistant Coach. They are spearheaded by Head Coach Ryan Hyland (NABC 30-under-30 recipient) and one of the nations top young coaches. With the Bloodhounds, Hamilton’s responsibilities were player development, recruiting, scouting, administrative work, and more. He worked closely with Most Improved Player Corey Jones Jr and All-League member Angel Rivera.

In March of 2022, he traveled to Melbourne, Australia to work with the city’s rising stars at the Hoop Culture venue owned by former NBA No.1 draft pick Andrew Bogut. He also traveled to the Hoops 24/7 facility in Dandenong, home to some of the Australias top prospects.

In April of 2022, Kieran coached 15 young men from Australia who traveled 10,000 Miles from Melbourne to New York City. The team’s would play in two live period events, one in Boston, Massachusetts, the other in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hamilton would coach the team to 11 victories and 3 defeats during this span. In the end, all 15 prospects would leave the country with interest or scholarship from a NCAA, NJCAA, or Preparatory school.

In June of 2022, he executively produced the documentary ‘10,000 Miles: Melbourne to New York’, filmed by Steven Carrasco. This short film outlined the trials and tribulations of the 15 young men who came from Australia with one common goal. The doc is 28 minutes in duration, and has made waves throughout Australia being one of the first documentaries of its kind.

In July, Kieran moved to Florida and has launched Hamilton Hoops FL, helping players from the Sunshine State and beyond bring their games to the next level.
