About this pro

I believe that my services standout because of my knowledge of the game of basketball being a student of the game and also playing the game on a high level. Teaching players the fundamentals is key to their overall improvement as a basketball player.  Outside of skill development, I add to my training, strength and conditioning plus agility which are all essential to an up and coming player getting stronger, faster, quicker, and getting in tip top shape. With all these essential elements on point, a player should see results that can help them become a better basketball player.  

I have been a student of the game since I was 4 years old. I was born and raised on basketball,  so its something that I am passionate about and enjoy teaching. I like to work with the youth so showing them different drills and teaching them how to do things correctly. I enjoy teaching the game I love to young people and when they understand it, can apply it, and then it works is a joy to see.

    How personable coach Boline is and his consistent work put in to making others better if they want to be.

  • Jaavion Bradley

    Loved training with coach Bo, of course he pushes you to your full potential everyday but he always gives you an option! He shows you how to do things, how often you have to do them, why you should do them & how its going to separate you from the competition. And he leaves it up to you on how great you want to be which is so important in developing boys to men. Always giving them an option & not forcing them to do anything! His mentality is either your going to come to work everyday full throttle or next man up, yes it may seem like a brutal mentality but this is what the youth needs so nobodys time is wasted! So I love Coach Bo & everything he did for me at Richard Daley, allowed me to come, not knowing who I was, & just giving me the only thing I wanted, an opportunity! I love him for that & he also took my game to another level by improving my footwork! He was more than just a coach to me & I am forever grateful we crossed paths in life! Nothing but love for Coach Boline!

    My Coach for 2 years at Junior College. Helped my isolation game, confidence & jumpsuit tremendously. Able to play on at an NAIA because of his training & coaching.

  • Ronique spencer

    He sticks to the basics, he make sure you know why you do the drill. Coach bo is patient sees talent and creates an professional player out of you in weeks shows you how to play with less dribbles and tells you what coaches would expect you to do if you want to get crafty, he is also definitely the guy to go to for that he played division 1 basketball knows how to create space and get to the basket when you want

FAQs


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

When I meet a new student who wants to hire me, i need to know their age plus what type of experience they have playing basketball.   I would allow that new student to come and observe a training session then allow them to make a decision if they want to move forward or not with scheduling their own training sessions. Then we can move forward from that point.


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

I have been playing organized basketball for over 30 years. I played for one of the best HS teams in the city of Chicago, Whitney M. Young, in college played for Oregon State univ and univ of Illinois plus played pro ball in the International Basketball Association in Canada before I injuries ended my pro career. Playing under various coaches, learning from a Dr of sports rehabilitation who played ball with me in HS and working out all the time, I have alot to offer kids all the way up to pros who are serious about taking their game to the next level!


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

I charge for a hour long session-$80. If a student wants to pay for 10 sessions up front, then I will give a discount to that particular student. My sessions consist of 1 to 5people at a time. My max for a session is 5 people because I want to be able to critique each player the best that I can to assess what is their strengths and weaknesses.  Once we figure that out then we move forward to build on the strengths and correct the weaknesses to help the student become a more complete and fundamentally sound ball player!


How did you get started teaching?

I got started training when a young man that was in HS played with us when we were out of school at an open gym. He asked me could I teach him what I knew because i played D1 basketball plus he could see I was pretty good when we played open gym. So I started to train him and he went on to play at D1 and D2 basketball in college.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with young kids, teenagers, HS students, college student-athletes and professional basketball players.


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

I would tell the student that if they set goals and that trainer is not helping them to achieve those goals properly, they need to find a new trainer!  Growth is a slow and a steady process, plus, doesn't happen over night. The parent(s) and student(s) need to be realistic with outcomes of the trainings and conscientious of where the student(s) skill set was at from the 1st session.  


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

Students need to put together what they think are their strengths and weaknesses. After that, the student needs to let their trainer know what are their strengths and weaknesses. Afterwards, they should allow the trainer to evaluate them properly to see where they are and what they need to work on during their training sessions to get better!
