Both of my daughters (ages 9and 11) play basketball and we wanted to add some private coaching to work on skills and fundamentals. We found Coach Joe and he is fantastic. After a few sessions with Coach Joe, we saw great improvements with both of our daughters shooting, ball handling and confidence. Coach Joe identified each strengths and areas to grow and organized training sessions where they could work on these skills. He is organized and he communicates corrections always in a positive and encouraging nature. He knows how to motivate each type of player and is fun to work with. We feel very lucky to have found him and would highly recommend.
Joe provides structured lessons but keeps it fun and real-world. He covers everything from fundamentals to game-time strategies. Solid coach and trainer.
Coach Joe is the real deal, one of the most caring and best coaches we know; he calls it as it is. If you are looking for someone with an abundance of knowledge, experience and expertise with great work ethics, he is the person.
Coach Joe’s skills training with our girls have got them to love the game & understanding of basketball.
Coach Perry has been great for my son. He takes the time to demonstrate and effectively communicate skills and situations that has allowed my son to apply what he’s learned in game time situations. By believing and knowing when to apply skills he’s gained through training, Coach Perry has enhanced my sons’s skill set on the basketball court.
Joe’s experience, knowledge, and training style are 2nd to none. He prepared my son to be successful in high school basketball. He is a great role model and excellent coach. If you are looking for a trainer to help your son or daughter to get to the next level AND be a positive influence in their lives Joe is the right choice. I highly recommend him
Coach Perry teaches my daughter valuable basketball skills in a way she understands. He is very knowledgeable and very patient. Emphasis on patience, Which is very hard to find in a trainer.
Coach Joe is the real deal! We have gone through many trainers and coaches before discovering the talented and personable coach/trainer we found in Joe! In just a short time, we have seen our daughter grasp a whole new level of understanding and playing the game. We see Joe as much more than a coach, he is a friend. He uses clever, creative and innovative strategies to show each player how to reach their highest potential in real game situations. He coaches with full commitment, grace and passion! When necessary, he can also take a high intensity training session to a humorous one just to make a player feel less pressure and more comfortable. We feel blessed to have him in our basketball family and excited to see our daughters continued growth! Thank you for all that you do coach!
Coach Joe is the consummate professional. He’s very knowledgeable about the game and at the same time shows patience when’s having his students accurately perform each drill that he’s assigned. We fully endorse Coach Joe for teaching and increasing young basketball players basketball acumen and IQ.
Very experienced and knows numerous techniques to improve whoever he is training
Coach Joe’s lessons improved my daughter’s basketball technical skills and basketball IQ. He is very patient, keep her engaged the whole time, very supportive and provide me a very good amount of challenges to the player. We can’t say enough great things about coach Joe’s lesson and would highly recommend coach Joe’s training!
Joe Perry is an amazing g coach. He’s patient but exacting! Knowledgable but the understanding. He focus’s on the needs of each person differently. His detail on basketball skills in incredible and has benefitted my granddaughter so much!
Coach Joe is a great coach with high knowledge of basketball. He is very friendly, works well with kids and my daughter is making tons of improvement in a short period of time.
Ji Hee Park
My son really enjoys his training sessions with Coach Joe. Great for improving individual skills and techniques. Highly recommend!
Joe is kind but exacting about basketball skills. His training is invaluable. The simplest things make a huge difference
Both my kids love working with Joe! He pushes and challenges them while still making the training fun. He has really helped them up their game on the court!
Our 2 daughters have been training with Coach Perry for about a month now. From the first session on, the girls have been learning not only the “how” but the “why”. Coach Perry explains with detail why a certain move should be done and that helps the girls understand why they need to do the action. Coach Perry is very patient, kind, respectful and funny. The girls get excited for their sessions and always leave with a drive to practice Coach Perry’s drills more at home. We look forward to continuing with Coach Perry for the long haul and only wish we had known him sooner…
My son learned a lot of skills and techniques after few sections of the lessons. Coach P is very organized and passionated about very thing. He is also a very good mentor for my son. Now my son is very confident about his basketball.
We’ve been privately training with Joe for almost a year. Joe has been great at assessing my son’s level and needs and targeting his training to help improve his skills. Joe breaks down the moves and gives explanations for applying it to the games. We’ve also liked the small group sessions we’ve participated in.
Coach has been awesome for my son! His training is very detailed and specifically tailored to each individual player. My son finds his workouts challenging, but fun! This has been very helpful in prepping for High School Basketball. We plan on continuing to have our son train with coach for as long as possible.
I have seen and trained with many different styles of trainers, but by far Dreams Of The Hardwood has the best training program around. The trainer is not just a trainer but a coach as well, so you better believe your getting the best of both worlds. In a short time they had my son who played years of basketball just getting rebounds because of his height, now dribbling like guards and finishing at the basket with spectacular post moves. Not only that but Dreams of The Hardwood has the years of technical experience my son needed to increase his game IQ and that can only come from the kind of trainers who have patience and compassion to really educate you while training and doing it with respect and dignity. Most of all Dreams Of The Hardwood is there every step of the way to help you reach your goals weather it leads you to just development, high school, college or beyond. I have 5 sons and 3 playing basketball. I wouldn’t put my boys any other place for basketball training. Dreams Of The Hardwood has my highest rated approval!!
Coach Perry I’d very knowledgeable and patient. My son is learning a lot and enjoying it!
Focused, efficient, and knowledgeable. It’s almost impossible to find trainers that are knowledgeable AND bring energy to the session. Joe is an incredible trainer
Very personalized training that develops the individual player, works on weaknesses, and improves decision-making on the court
The Dermer Family
When you book Coach Perry, you’re booking the real deal. He genuinely loves the game and to help the player improve. It’s noticeable in the way he connects with each player. He knows just how to push them to stretch their own boundaries and grow, but does so through motivation. Our daughter has learned many things through Coach Perry. Even as our daughter starts her first year of college ball now, we know we can continue to call on him for training, advice, and mentorship. He’s not just an amazing coach & trainer he’s now our friend and someone we would recommend to everyone! We love Coach Perry.
Joe is very knowledgeable, patient and has an excellent way of communicating with kids
Coach Joe is very professional and knowledgeable of basketball .My daughter has learned from coach a lot of her basketball IQ which we appreciate it because it has made her a stronger player when running drills and plays .
Coach has every quality you need in a basketball coach. Very good with girls, just one of the best coaches my daughter had.
Focus on skills and basketball, but also on the person and character.
Joe has been incredible with the development of my child’s skills.
We like his professionalism with the kids and parents
Coach Joe is great! Our daughter has learned so much in the short time she has been working with him. We already signed up for 5 more lessons and can’t wait to see her progress further. Highly recommend Coach Joe!!!
The overall strength of Dreams of The Hardwood Training comes from the expertise of Coach Joe Perry. His approach to introducing the development of new skill sets with his students is received well. It is definitely quality training.
Coach helps me work on improving my fundamentals. He helps me understand the game better. He has me do a lot of drills to work on my moves and shots. He is an awesome coach!
Coach Joe exceeds my expectations as a coach. He is clear on what’s expected of the players, parents and himself. He shows respect towards his players. He praises hard work & efforts. He’s not afraid to correct mistakes made so players are aware when it happens. He doesn’t dwell on the mistakes...learn & move forward. He expects players to take responsibility as a player & as an individual. This is the type of training I expect as a parent & I believe players benefit from his knowledge & love of the game.
Coach Perry is next level training. In 3 months of consistent weekly training he’s transformed my 13 year old sons game. Jumps higher, dribbles faster, and executes . There’s lots of so called “ trainers” out there I know I’ve seen a lot of them. I wish we found him 5 years earlier.
Joe Perry provides excellent instruction by breaking down advanced techniques in a step by step progression that allows athletes to understand how to apply them in a game setting.
Extremely detailed and full of energy. Great to work with!
Coach Joe Perry is a great motivator and he is willing to train at the level of students. He is always looking for ways to improve himself as well.
I picked up a lot of great skills and moves that I can use in games. Coach Joe has a lot of knowledge about the game and strives to help you anyway. He is very motivating during the sessions and truly wants to see you succeed.
He is extremely patient and knowledgeable. Has taken my son and transformed both his skills and confidence level in a matter of months. Highly recommend!!!
Very personal to every level and position. His experience and basketball knowledge will challenge every detail of your game to rise to the next level! Best decision we made!
Ambrose beard (father of Anaya)
Excellent skills training. Good energy and vibes to keep the girls motivated. Definitely a must. I would highly recommend coach Perry. He’s the best
Coach Joe is a teacher. He starts with basics and adds layers of complexity as the training sessions progress. His sessions are planned and all have an objective. I’d highly recommend!
I liked how hard I was pushed to be my best and all the different drills.
Highly recommend Joe! We have training with him for several years now and have always had a great experience. He is very detailed and is passionate about his training!
Training is specific to the level of my player and specialized in terms of what she needs to work on. My player gets challenged and empowered to go to the next level. She is always happy with the training and her self confidence has improved. Every detail that Coach Joe explains is clear and always clicks which gives her an understanding of why she is doing each step to get to the end result. Coach Joe has a gift for coaching and teaching and I would highly recommended him.
Joe has many years training and it shows. And knows where to start his training with each individual athlete. He improves there skill set for sure
The family environment that is created along with the wealth of basketball knowledge being relayed to my daughter. #1 is keeping God first by praying before and alter practice
Vivath Watt Om
Coach Perry’s attention to detail at an individual level. His ability to spot and correct player’s flaws as well as teach and explain The reasoning behind complicated moves and plays.
Coach Joe’s Trainings are always unique and truly works on enhancing the players skill set. He motivates and encourages the best out of his trainees.
All trainings ran smoothly and it was fast paced. Everyone got a good workout in.
Coach Joe Perry has an excellent demeanor with our 8 year old. His coaching style motivates our son to work hard and his improvement on the court is showing.
Joe is very knowledgeable and experienced and does a great job introducing new skills and correcting weaknesses.
Joe has a great grasp of the game and how to teach it. He can break down difficult moves into simpler parts so that student can gradually learn. Joe's also willing to work on different aspects of the game with your child upon request.
The attention to detail
Coach Joe's knowledge and experience is great. He knows what each individual player needs to get to the next level. He knows where. He can push a player to get a great workout and I highly recommend he as a coach and trainer for your daughter or son.
Each session is customized to the player’s needs. Joe knows the intricacies of how a player plays and works to help them improve. Joe teaches drills that help a player during a game which helps with ‘situational smarts’. He also discusses the mental side of basketball and encourages each player thru motivation and shares his wisdom.
Coach Joe has been an awesome coach for our daughter. He is very thoughtful and intentional with the way he coaches each player. Through his many years of experience coaching athletes he is able to assess each players ability and challenges them appropriately for where they are at currently. He has a good balance of demanding performance yet being very encouraging. Another big plus is that coach really values character development and makes a great effort to instill that in his athletes. With coach Joe character isn't just a part of basketball, but it is central to the game. We are blessed to have him as our coach
Coach Joe Perry is one of the best my daughter has worked with! Always on time always professional and always personal. We have worked with Joe for almost 5 years. He has been our daughters Team coach and trainer as well. Joe makes the training fun as well.
Joe has trained my daughters (ages 5th grade through high school), both in group/team trainings and private sessions. Joe is excellent at helping the girls build their skill sets and giving them tools they can use in a game setting. He is great at working with kids of all ages. The girls really enjoy their time with him, and we have seen tremendous growth in them as players. Thanks, Coach Joe!
Our experience with coach has been one of a kind. He pour into his athletes! They learn the game fundamentals with such detail. The progression made under in his program has been unbelievable. We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to learn in his program.
Coach made drills practical and simulated them in game-like situations.
Been with Coach Joe Perry for almost 2 years he is the absolute best I've seen at helping young girls improve their game at every level, with a vast knowledge of the Club, High School & Collegiate game but most importantly he legitimately cares about what is going on with your daughter's on & off the court.
The attention to details and the commitment in having the athletes understand why each particular drill or move is done, along with options.
My daughter really like Coach Joe’s approach. He is very fundamental and holds her accountable but yet he able to get her to push herself beyond her comfort zone. My wife and I are very satisfied with his methods for reaching the young ladies and instructing them on being better each day than they were the day before.
drills are great and can be implemented when playing a game
Coach Joe is amazing! A gifted coach, he is able to connect with players of all levels...from beginners to elite professionals. As a coach myself, I love watching him work with my kids...he knows how to breakdown all parts the the game and gets these kids playing ball!
April and Family

Joe Perry is hands down the real deal. Every lesson is tailored to your kids needs and abilities. Our kids come away every time feeling motivated to get better and truly enjoy their training sessions. His is an excellent coach and really knows how to talk to children to get the best out of them. Coach Joe truly understands the game of basketball and his love for the game transcends down to the kids he trains. His drills are challenging but always appropriate for your child’s skill level. He is positive and knows how to read a child’s personality to get the best results. Joe Perry is a man of Christian values and beliefs which to us is a bonus for our children to be around. We feel very blessed for our kids to get such great coaching. Look no further. He is the best!
Coach Perry understands basketball and all the subtle skill details that are necessary to be a competitive player. He is a great communicator. He is warm, positive, patient, and encouraging to his players. His practices are no-nonsense, nonstop and productive. But most important of all his demeanor is always courteous, respectful, and Christian based. He is a great example for kids and a super TEACHER of the game of basketball.
Joe has been essential to the development of both of our daughters ages 15 and 8. We went to Joe because he is able meet the girls at their level in order to develop their skills and drastically increase their basketball IQ. He has prepared our 15 year old for high school ball by teaching her to read the defense create space to make shots. Our 8 year old is implementing strategies from Joe's lessons to shake her defenders and create opportunities to score in games. Their ball handling and footwork have improved at an incredibly fast rate, and their learning curve has been higher with Joe than with any other coach or trainer. We really appreciate his keen awareness for the individual approach each player needs. We look forward to daughters continuing their training with Joe!
My daughter always has a great training session. Her skills improve and so does her basketball IQ. Coach Perry is a pleasure to work with. She always looks forward to training with him.
the attention to detail in all of the drills and the hard work put in to all the drills.
Coach Joe understands how to get the best out of each individual player. His trainings are always perfectly planned and executed, giving each player the chance to improve.
I’ve been involved with Joe’s training since I was 16. (I’m now 24 years old) Joe is the type of trainer who adapts to you while staying within his own philosophies. Joe has trained a wide variety of athletes - youth to elite - and has done a great job helping athletes reach their fullest potentials. Not only is Joe a great teacher, but he is also a great student of the game which gives him an advantage of knowing all different types of styles of play. This is important because he has the ability to find a style that suits your child while also challenging them to try different types of things. I would recommend Coach Joe to anyone who is willing to work hard and get better (while also having fun of course) finding a trainer is like finding the right shoe. You want something that’s comfortable for you and that’s going to last the longest!
Joe Perry was very motivating and pushed me during train. At the same time he was supportive and enjoyable to talk to outside of lessons. His experience and knowledge of the game makes his training great and he even teaches little things he's picked up from playing and watching basketball.
James Murdock lll
Joe have coach my son and daughter, his fundamentals teaching is extremely off the charts, his knowledge of new and Innovating techniques are very helpful to any basketball athlete in their quest to become better. Joe is very likable but stern. I rate Joe as a 5 star trainer.
Coach Mark Olivieri
Have known Coach Joe Perry to be one of the best skill coaches that I have come in contact with and have had the pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend working with him as he brings a tremendous amount of knowledge to the table and can guide athletes to great levels of improvement and understanding of their game.
Coach Joe was my coach and trainer! He helped me succeed to the highest level being the first 8th grade to commit to a division one college (University of Tennessee) I recommend coach Joe he’s the best to do it and he will make sure your child succeed on and off the court. Thanks coach Joe
Hello this review is for Joe Perry .. Joe is an excellent basketball coach and personal trainer specializing in skills development ..coach Perry is extremely knowledgeable and has tons of experience working with athletes from beginners to professionals
Sherri Pegues, President GBL Sports
Thanks so much Joe Perry for the great service you provided to the GBL Lady Rebels National teams. Our girls are better because you provided them with quality training. You were able to keep 10 high-level players engaged and wanting to learn. We appreciate your efforts to increase the skill set of women's basketball keep up the good work!
I've know Joe for over 30yrs. We've coached teams together and worked camps together. We've even coached against each other. Joe is one for the best PEOPLE I know. His heart is in the game to help the athletes. Joe's ability to access and develop talent quickly is remarkable. However more importantly is his ability to teach life lessons and help kids reach their full potential by building their confidence, ability to learn, self respect and respect for others. You won't find a better experience for your child. I recently sent a player of mine to Joe. She was spending the summer down in California. She arrived as a JV bench rider and returned as a Varsity player with an opportunity to start. She was standing up straight, smiling and telling me how much fun she had improving. It doesn't get much better than that.
My daughter has trained with Coach Joe since she was in 5th grade. She’s now a freshman, on the Varsity, at Mater Dei. Joe taught her the fundamentals of the game and introduced more advanced guard moves as she prrogressed. He’s promoted her to outside connections, including landing a video shoot for her with Henry Bibby. Though we don’t see him as much now, he has made a tremendous effort to keep in touch and follow her game. Ive met and had my daughter train with many trainers, and Joe is at the top of the list - a true asset to the basketball training world!
I have observed Joe Perry's work and his workouts are one of the best. They are high intensity, but lots of fun. Joe's workouts are up to date with the common trend and keep you moving. Players go to Joe and as a result, they get better!!
Coach Perry is a very knowledgeable and talented trainer. From basic to advanced drills, coach Perry's love to teach is evident. His attention to detail will bring out the best in you and have you pushing yourself to attain your goals. Hands down one of the best trainers to have worked with my daughter.
Very focused on little things, pushes you to learning knew things and makes every minute worth it.
Coach Perry has been training my daughter for years & her progression is not only extremely noticeable but he's help her in her recruiting process as well. An AMAZING trainer & an even better person. Joe comes HIGHLY recommended. One of the best trainers I've had the privelidge of watching & taking my daughter to.
Lindsay Shaye and Taryn
Joe's knowledge help develop my daughters game throughout the years. We went to him based on his reputation and experience at the high school level. He is a master technician that can work all levels and positions. His one on one sessions are designed to give players an edge and prepare them for game situations. He also teaches mental toughness an attitude that they need to be successful. Kids enjoy working for him. Sit in on one of his sessions and you'll see why
The basketball circuit is a tight knit community with so many options, but not too many that you can truly trust and believe in who are genuine or consistent. Coach Joe is consistent in his training and his ability to communicate with players, as well as, help each individual get them to their next level through custom and small groups. He has tons of years of experience as a coach/trainer and has the knowledge of what it takes to play at the collegiate level. His training sessions are based off skill level and the players ability to adapt and improve. He also has one and one training. Coach Jerry Perry is one of those gems - a diamond in the rough! His knowledge and understanding of the game goes beyond the normal scope of cone work. He has studied the game extensively and learned from the best. He stresses the importance of basketball IQ and making the player better all around and someone equipped to tackle any situation. He pushes his players through extensive training so they best know how to react in every situation of the game, whether that be in a one on one situation or double teamed. He works on fundamentals, foot work, ball handling, and form shooting.
Joe has been training my daughter for the past 4 years. He challenges her each session with innovative skill workouts. Her skills & confidence have improved tremendously.
I have had the pleasure of both having my daughter play for Joe for 4 or 5 years, and the opportunity to coach with Joe for at least five years. He has 1) tremendous knowledge of the game 2) has realistic but high expectations of what can be accomplished 3) has drills and skills that are are of value for youth from 7-21 years of age 4) teaches basketball as it should be played; hard, as a team and with knowledge and discipline. But most importantly he has the experience and knowledge to continue to take the player to higher and higher skill and knowledge levels as they are prepared to handle it. In my opinion it would be difficult for you find a coach that has more experience and skills to improve the player no matter what level they are.
Coach Joe is an excellent basketball trainer that can teach basic fundamentals or very advanced moves. He communicates well with the kids and your son or daughter will truly enjoy the training. He’ll prepare your child to play at the next level.
Joe Perry is an excellent teacher of the game of basketball. He has the ability to prepare individuals for competition through motivation, techniques, and providing proper skill development. Joe Perry's workouts prepare basketball athletes for the highest level of competition.
Mike from Swoosh Basketball
Joe knows the game very well and has a unique talent to transfer his knowledge of the game so the students can learn from him. We are very happy with Joe. One of the best!
Coach Joe was my basketball coach throughout middle school and high school. He brings intensity, knowledge, and passion to the game. He's been coaching for decades and knows the little nuances and details needed to step your game up. If ever you needed him for a one-on-one session to fine tune any aspect of your skillset that you were lacking or if you wanted to network with other players to get a group session going, he was always the person to make it happen. He's a master of techniques both on the offensive and defensive ends, he holds you accountable for your progress, and pushes you to do better each time you're working out with him. Not only has he helped me on the court, but he's also been a great role model and mentor off the court. He helped me get recruited for college and was always an advocate for my success. Graduated from college now, I keep in contact with him to this day and always see how he's impacting the lives of the young girls that he coaches. One thing I would say is that you will have to work hard in every single session with him. He does not go easy on anyone. He nitpicks at any little discrepancy or weak spot of yours to make you better--so just be mentally ready! If you want to get better at the game of basketball, if you have dreams of playing in college, or if you find that your current coach just doesn't care enough about your success, Coach Joe is your guy.
My children have been training with Coach Joe now for over 4 years and I must say he is one of the best ones out here training kids. He connects with the kids so they understand the concept, moves and the IQ of basketball. I do recommend your train with him!
Coach Joe Perry is a great coach, trainer and instructor. His knowledge and insight of the game goes beyond the technical aspects of training ; I would recommend Coach Joe to a beginner as well as an experienced player, he has so much to offer, and I feel privileged to have had him train my 2 daughters.
Maelyn and Kaelani
Great with the us kids. Coach Joe is very knowledgeable and super positive!! 👍
Coach Joe is a great trainer! He knows the details of the game and is a fantastic instructor. He has years of experience and can demonstrate moves! Unlike other trainers that just "workout" a player, Coach Joe is a teacher of the game.
Joe does a comprehensive review of all skills. He makes learning easy by his use of demonstration and clear verbal expression. As a head coach of forty plus years , I would recommend him to players of the game. I
James Johnson Jr.
My daughter has been going to coach Joe for the last 3 years. He has played an integral role in her development. I have happily referred Joe to at least 10 families. Hey is fantastic...
The Martin Family
We started going to Coach Perry so he can help transition my daughter to become a perimeter player (she's always played the forward position because she has "some" height.). His focus with her has been her footwork, situational plays, how to defend a perimeter player, etc. He's patient and provides positive reassurance when the drill is done right. He often asks her for her feedback and can sense her understanding of the drill. She always looks forward to her weekly workout with Coach Perry. She has been training with him for close to a year now and the results are very visible. She has become more confident and much more sure of herself since training with Coach Perry. We can not be more happier with the results.
I learned something new every workout. he's not your average trainer, he makes you think through the workouts as well as perfecting your move in powerful Motions.
Coach Perry has been training both my son and daughter starting from when they were 7 and 10 years old. My kids have learned so much from him and have excelled in their point guard skills. My son has been the starting point guard on all of his club teams for the past 6 years and my daughter is currently on the Varsity team at Troy High School. I highly recommend Coach Perry as a trainer for anyone wanting to improve their overall basketball skills and learn the fundamentals the right way. He will make them work hard and get them ready to play in high school.
Great trainer, especially for guards. I never feel my time or money is wasted when my daughter trains with Coach Joe.
Joe is a very reliable and dedicated coach. He has very good instruction and form building with use of many drills. His one on one lessons are focused and productive
Joe has been training my daughter for almost a year now. He is one of the best trainers she has had since she started playing basketball. He is very effective transferring basketball knowledge, ball handling and shooting. I have definitely noticed that my daughter has improved her game of basketball!
My daughter has had the pleasure of working with Joe for private basketball workouts. He worked her hard, but explained everything he was doing, and made the workouts fun. He was enthusiastic, supportive and knowledgeable. My daughter loved the workouts and will do more in the future. He was on time, easy to reach and has great passion for he game of basketball.
Coach Joe Perry, has been working with Carina for the last 2 years. Carina has only been playing basketball for 3 years and Coach Joe has done an outstanding job of developing Carina's skills as well as her basketball IQ. He has prepared Carina to compete at a very high level in a very short period of time.
Patrick A. Cubel
Coach Joe Perry has been our daughters coach for over 6 years. Club, high school and she still goes and works out with him while she playing in college. He not only taught her basketball skills as a player but just importantly the importance of good grades and leadership. Cali is a sophomore at Whittier College, was the schools freshman female athlete of the year and is currently a studen ambassador at Whittier College
Joe Perry is an incredible basketball coach and mentor. My daughter has worked with Joe for quite some time now. Her shooting and ball handling have improved dramatically. What I think is most important to express is how much her confidence has grown. Joe also teaches leadership skills on the court while working with my daughter which is every bit as important as the actual skill of playing itself. I highly recommend!
Joe has a outstanding basketball mind and is a excellent trainer. He can communicate and teach at any level. Anyone would benefit from working with him.
Coach Joe is an outstanding Coach, he is very knowledgeable, patient, always positive, incredible integrity and believes in his athletes. Both my daughters have grown in their Bball skills and in their Bball IQ. Coach Joe has also coached players on my oldest daughter's team who plays at a D1 program in CA.
I've known Joe for over ten years now and he has worked with me through my middle school, high school, college and now into my professional career. He is a phenomenal skill developer and knows the game inside and out. Players of any level can benefit from his training and will see improvement in their game.
Joe Perry provides weekly basketball skills training to my 13 year old daughter. Her Intrest is perimeter focus. Coach is prepared weekly with focused training to increase her awareness, build on compentency and build her confidence. He explains the skill and shows through demonstration. He's dependable and very professional
My daughter really enjoys working with Joe, she also seems to play her best after consistent work with him.
I usually start my first time clients with basic ball-handling and footwork. I move to shooting, then maybe shooting off the dribble. As I have watched them perform in these general areas, I begin to teach new things in each area to see how quickly they grasp it and to see if they possess deeper inadequacies. I mainly try to see the player's work ethic and mental toughness.
I have over 35 years of coaching youth through varsity high school. I have coached many DI college level athletes. I have trained players at least 30 years. I have numerous years of attending camps and clinics for coaches, trainers and players. I am associated with some of the basketball training industry's best.
I have an pricing system for my 1-hour private individual lessons. I offer an hour session rate, then I offer training bundles of 3 and/or 5 priced that offers a discounted rate.
I have coached many players and began training individuals with my 5 year old son as my first trainee. I built a love of training players along with coaching teams.
I have worked with both, male & female players. On the male side, I have worked with beginners to varsity high school players and international professionals. On the female side, I have worked with beginners to international professionals. I have coached players who have played both, college and professionally in the NBA, WNBA & Internationally.
A basketball training event I looked forward to is actually a 2-day Trainers & Coaches Conference that I attended the past 2 years.
My advice in seeking trainers would be: 1) commitment, 2) knowledge & 3) teaching ability. Don't mistake that a great demonstrator or player can teach.
Players should ask questions like: 1) how many years of experience? 2) ask questions that will reveal character and personal agenda. And 3) ask questions on methods of reaching the player's goals.
