About this pro

My service stands out becacuse my philosophy for my athletes is very direct and goal driven.  My training model is "teaching mentality first".  This means learning a insertive mental approach to training, challenging ourselves physically and mentally.

What I enjoy about my service to my athletes is my High success rate to assist them reach beyond their goals on and off the court (or field of play). The life long relationships with the athletes ( and their families) have been the Biggest blessing.

    Coach Skinner not only provides insight and knowledge of the game, but he also cares about your development off the court. He stresses the importance of getting an education and hardwork will payoff if you apply yourself and trust the process!

  • Dee Skinner

    Intensity! Every single workout challenges the athletes to push themselves to maximum levels. If you’re looking for a high level and challenging workout, I would highly recommend sending your athlete to train with No Luck Sports!

  • Elizabeth Sann

    Joe is an excellent trainer and I highly recommend him. Joe trained my son for several years from middle school into high school and I would 100% use him again!

    I liked the drills that he put me through and I also liked the progression I had throughout the time I was training with him

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

The first lesson I teach my Athletes ( from Professionals to young kids) is to Master every Drill.  What I mean by that is no matter how big or small a drill or task is; you try to master it to the best of your ability to the No Luck Sports motto "We teach Mentality First". When working with a new athlete,  I have an in depth conversations with them about what their goals are, what are they willing to sacrifice to reach them. I also give a honest evaluation of the skill set and where I see them currently. I then come up with a reachable plan to obtain those set goals.

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

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Counseling and I been in the Counseling field for about 20 years. I feel this gives me a extra edge on communicating and relating to the Athletes. Also I've had the opportunity to play and Coach basketball on the Proffesional to high school level.

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

My pricing is on a sliding scale. It based on the age and level of training services.

How did you get started teaching?

After I ended my Overseas pursue and stopped playing competitively, I was asked to visit a training session & coach a few players.  At the time there were several NBA and DIV. 1 athletes training and one of the players happened to be Univ. of Maryland and future NBA First round pick Steve Francis.  While having the opportunity to train and going through the process and preparing him for the draft, I developed a love for coaching and a new outlook on the game. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have personally trained high level AAU programs, High school, NBA players Los Angeles Lakers Carmelo Anthony's (Nike Team Melo),  Denver Nuggets and Will Barton's (Under Amour Team Thrill) and as young as 6 years old.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I've participated, planned  for the last 3 years in the Legendary Capital Classic High School Boys and Girls All Star game in Washington D.C.. I also have been a part of Hall of Famer Allen Iverson All American Roundball Classic for the last 3 years.

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

I would tell them to ask or check to see what successes have thier past athletes experienced.

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

What I'm I trying to accomplish in the sport of Basketball.
