Devin P. says, "My son Julius has been working with Dante for about 3/3.5 months and I could not be more happy with the results. A lot of times trainers use gimmicks and trendy techniques to make their training seem to be better than it is. With Dante, I love his training because it focuses on each player and the level that they are currently at. With my son being in his first year in basketball he identified that and started him out with the basics to ensure he has a fundamentally sound foundation. It may not seem flashy but it's effective, this has allowed my son to grow at his own pace but 3 months later he is able to play and compete with children who have been playing AAU/Recreational basketball for years. Dante focuses not only on the skills you need on the court but also on the physical attributes needed to play at a high level. From helping my son gain confidence in his dribbling with an emphasis on his left hand to create that natural balance and breaking down my sons previous shot structure to give him a more consistent and reliable shot. Dante is the real deal and is a hidden gem in our community. If you take a look at the players he has developed from elementary all the way to college that resume speaks for itself. Dante is a good man, with morals, and treats all the kids with respect. Dante ensures a return on all investments so I write this review with pride, DANTE IS THE REAL DEAL. Thank you Dante for all you have done for my son you are beyond appreciated!!!" Read more

Your Basketball Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much does a personal basketball trainer cost?

The average cost of a personal basketball trainer ranges from $30 to $150 per hour for one-on-one sessions. The cost can be influenced by factors such as the player's level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), the trainer's experience and expertise, and the location where the training takes place.

Additionally, small group sessions of 2 to 4 children can cost $30 to $50 per session on average, while large group training of 4+ kids can cost $20 to $40 per session on average

How do you train for basketball?

A well-rounded basketball training regimen should include skill-specific workouts, strength and conditioning exercises, and a structured training program. Skill development includes shooting workouts, ball handling drills, and training tailored to your position, whether you’re a guard or post player.

Strength and conditioning exercises such as aerobic training and strength training for primary muscle groups like hips, quads, and glutes are critical. A structured 6-week training program that emphasizes form, technique, and skill progression should improve your game.

How many hours do basketball players train a week?

Basketball players, especially those aiming to improve their skills, may train for around 10 to 15 hours per week, depending on the level of their game. The specific distribution of training hours across skill development, strength training, and other aspects can vary based on individual needs and goals.

However, much of that training time does not require an instructor. Shooting hoops, working out at the gym, and playing pick-up games all count toward the total training time.

Is strength training important for basketball?

Yes, strengthtraining is essential for basketball players as it aids in the development of speed strength, absolute strength, and core strength. It boosts blast impulse, the ability to generate force rapidly, crucial for activities like jumping for rebounds and swift changes in direction.

Additionally, strength training enhances power output and agility, allowing players to respond quickly to on-court situations and maintain an edge over their opponents.

What questions should I ask a basketball trainer?

Ask these questions when picking a basketball trainer to help you meet your goals:

  • What is your background and experience in basketball training?
  • Have you worked with players at my skill level or position before?
  • What is your coaching philosophy and training style?
  • How do you tailor your training programs to individual needs?
  • What specific skills and aspects of the game do you emphasize in your training sessions?
  • How do you address both physical and mental aspects of player development?
  • Do you conduct initial assessments to identify strengths and areas for improvement?
  • How do you track and measure a player's progress over time?
  • How do you incorporate injury prevention strategies into your training programs?
  • What steps do you take to ensure the well-being of your athletes?
  • What is your availability for training sessions?
  • How do you handle scheduling and potential conflicts?
  • How do you communicate with players and provide feedback?

  • Can you provide references from previous clients or players you have trained?
  • How do you work with players to set and achieve realistic goals?
  • What expectations do you have for players in terms of commitment and effort?
