Conceptualized in 2009 and launched in 2011, Open Gym Premier (OGP) evolved after a group of passionate former hoopers recognized a lack of quality basketball facilities, programs, events and coaching in the Orange County area. The idea for Open Gym Premier was developed based on the experiences of Matt Kanne, Miguel Bennett and the entire OGP staff, who carefully evaluated their own careers to help create the ultimate basketball experience. The Open Gym Premier concept has been recognized in business plan competitions and in community circles for its innovation and professionalism.
Open Gym Premier (OGP) provides camps, club teams, leagues, tournaments and training to dedicated basketball and volleyball players. OGP has earned a reputation for providing quality coaching and training while also delivering innovative, elite and well-organized events to the basketball community. Based in a 70,000 square foot headquarter professional sports facility in Anaheim, CA and with a team of over 100 part and full time employees, OGP has the infrastructure to transform youth sports. The Company was recognized as an Orange County Register Top Workplace in 2021.
OGP is one of fifteen Jr. NBA Flagship Network Members and has national partnerships with brands such as adidas and Ballislife. The organization has grown significantly since inception throughout Orange County, Southern California and nationally, including the launch of standalone, subsidiary brands:
OGP continues to expand with programs and events across California, Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada, New Mexico, Hawaii, Colorado, Utah and Texas, serving over 50,000 players and 5,000 teams annually. Amidst this growth, management remains steadfast with a genuine purpose of helping all amateur players and teams and improving the grassroots basketball and volleyball experience.
