Hoop Garden takes a holistic approach to basketball training. We go far beyond doing drills. We want to make every player the best possible person they can be, as well as build a life long passion for the game of basketball.
I enjoy everything about the work I do, being on the court is a blessing in its self. Teaching and giving to others is another great thing about this training practice. Being a basketball trainer is no doubt one of the most fufilling things I've done with my life.
Coach Crawford gave me a free lesson a couple of days ago, he really pushed me while we were training.
Working with a new student always begins with evaluation and encouragement. I must see how much passion any new player has for the game before I can start pushing them. After my twenty-minute evaluation is done, I begin a real workout based on their skill level, drive, and age.
I've lived through basketball for the past eight years of my life. I played many years of travel ball as well as four years of high school varsity. I competed in the Florida track and field state championships and have dedicated much of my life to learning how to become the best possible athlete. I have lived through this sport and have gained much more knowledge about it through experience than any 4-week course could ever teach me.
My standard pricing system is thirty dollars for one-time lessons, and 25 dollars each if you buy upwards of five lessons in advance. There are group discounts as well which may be discussed in private.
If you are looking to hire a trainer, make sure they're not just using you for your money. It can be hard to tell sometimes but know the difference between someone who is truly looking out for your best interests, and someone who is just looking for a quick paycheck.
