As a Strategic skill trainer teaching & watching kids grow and gain confidence is the most rewarding thing about what I do.
Coach Robert Soler, and his HSA staff, do a great job working with players of any age. Coach Robert’s ability to analyze a player’s shot, figure out the issues that they might be having, and help the player implement the proper correction is amazing to watch and to experience. I recommend HSA to any player of any age and any skill level. You will get better and you’ll have fun doing it!
The fact that Coach Robert really locos in on the attention to detail where most trainers tend to lack. Having been one of the first of his athletes to go through what he calls the “Black Ops” training (ask about it, he may bring it back for you guys. I’ve been hearing that no else has completed it since me. Lol 😝)I can give my testimony that after 3 knee surgeries he had my game at the best it had ever been. The man is low key a genius when it comed to this game. Truly blessed and thankful to have crossed paths with him and the hotshots staff.
They taught me how to shoot and the fundamentals of the game.
World Class Organization They have treated me and my kids like family. Great atmosphere Excellent locations Great after school, sports and training programs.
