Jerimie Archie

Our Founder: Jerimie Archie, affectionately known as “Coach Archie” was born and raised in Houston, TX. His faith and his family are the driving force in his life. He discovered a love for basketball at a very early age. Coach Archie used this love for basketball as a vehicle to escape the rough inner-city pitfalls of drugs, alcohol, and violence. This birthed Coach Archie’s vision to lead others to success by using basketball as his platform and vehicle for changing lives.

Coach Archie combined his experience as a public educator and High School Basketball coach to develop a systematic and level based basketball training program for Beginner level through Elite. He decided to combine his passion for youth, teaching, and basketball, to open Universal Hoops Basketball Academy.

Coach Archie also wear many hats as a loving husband, father, and spiritual leader.
