    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.

  • Sarah Shaw

    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.

  • Kalli

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

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.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

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.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

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.

How did you get started teaching?

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.

What types of students have you worked with?

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.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A basketball training event I looked forward to is actually a 2-day Trainers & Coaches Conference that I attended the past 2 years.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

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.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

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.
