Attention Youth Basketball Parents and Coaches, It isn’t about you or me. It’s about the kids. If we want to improve youth basketball, that’s the first problem that we have to solve. The best thing I can do about that is live what I’m saying with every person we work with. We see too many […]
Thanks for the email. Our basketball training is hard. What we’ve learned in doing this is that when a player is eager and hungry to get better, they pester their parents or grandparents or whomever and they figure out how to come to see us as much as they can. Just like I said when […]
Parent of a Prospective College Basketball Player, Thanks for reaching out to us. I know we probably talk a little differently than most people.

We think it’s critical to chase excellence, not perfection. I think perfectionism is something we as a society don’t understand very well. To me, perfectionism is a true double-edged sword. It gives high achievers the obsessive drive to work insanely hard & be hyper-focused on becoming the best. But, it is also what keeps them […]
Can someone help me understand? For most of my life, I have been pretty much secluded from the mainstream. Growing up in a secluded rural town before the internet, I didn’t really know much about the world. Then for the next half of my life being in environments that very few people get to experience, […]
Consistency is the key to success in anything, not just basketball. But we love basketball so that’s what we like to talk about.
