At 26 years of age, sports have played a huge part in my life by helping shape my character today. My father introduced me to a variety of sports around the age of 6 and coached many of the youth in the Landover, MD area. Right now I focus on teaching basketball fundamentals such as shot mechanics, ball handling, and passing. I’ve worked with novice-collegiate level players for the past 5 years and currently coach with a Youth Sports Clinic in Bethesda. Whether you are looking to get started with the basics or improve on specific skills, Coach D can bring you positive results. 🏆

Your Basketball Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much does a personal basketball trainer cost?

The average cost of a personal basketball trainer ranges from $30 to $150 per hour for one-on-one sessions. The cost can be influenced by factors such as the player's level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced), the trainer's experience and expertise, and the location where the training takes place.

Additionally, small group sessions of 2 to 4 children can cost $30 to $50 per session on average, while large group training of 4+ kids can cost $20 to $40 per session on average

How do you train for basketball?

A well-rounded basketball training regimen should include skill-specific workouts, strength and conditioning exercises, and a structured training program. Skill development includes shooting workouts, ball handling drills, and training tailored to your position, whether you’re a guard or post player.

Strength and conditioning exercises such as aerobic training and strength training for primary muscle groups like hips, quads, and glutes are critical. A structured 6-week training program that emphasizes form, technique, and skill progression should improve your game.

How many hours do basketball players train a week?

Basketball players, especially those aiming to improve their skills, may train for around 10 to 15 hours per week, depending on the level of their game. The specific distribution of training hours across skill development, strength training, and other aspects can vary based on individual needs and goals.

However, much of that training time does not require an instructor. Shooting hoops, working out at the gym, and playing pick-up games all count toward the total training time.

Is strength training important for basketball?

Yes, strengthtraining is essential for basketball players as it aids in the development of speed strength, absolute strength, and core strength. It boosts blast impulse, the ability to generate force rapidly, crucial for activities like jumping for rebounds and swift changes in direction.

Additionally, strength training enhances power output and agility, allowing players to respond quickly to on-court situations and maintain an edge over their opponents.

What questions should I ask a basketball trainer?

Ask these questions when picking a basketball trainer to help you meet your goals:

  • What is your background and experience in basketball training?
  • Have you worked with players at my skill level or position before?
  • What is your coaching philosophy and training style?
  • How do you tailor your training programs to individual needs?
  • What specific skills and aspects of the game do you emphasize in your training sessions?
  • How do you address both physical and mental aspects of player development?
  • Do you conduct initial assessments to identify strengths and areas for improvement?
  • How do you track and measure a player's progress over time?
  • How do you incorporate injury prevention strategies into your training programs?
  • What steps do you take to ensure the well-being of your athletes?
  • What is your availability for training sessions?
  • How do you handle scheduling and potential conflicts?
  • How do you communicate with players and provide feedback?
  • What role do players and parents/guardians play in the feedback process?
  • What are your fees and payment structure?
  • Are there any long-term commitments or package deals available?
  • Can you provide references from previous clients or players you have trained?
  • How do you work with players to set and achieve realistic goals?
  • What expectations do you have for players in terms of commitment and effort?

Coach Ness is fantastic! He gives kids strong fundamental core skills to be well prepared in basketball games. My son improved instantly after his first practice. The most important is that coach Ness teaches kids strong self-discipline to plan and practice on daily routine basis, it helps my son to form his solid ball handling skills through training and practice. I wish we could meet coach Ness sooner, he is a real best fit for junior basketball players like my son! Thank you coach Ness 👍

After my first knee surgery and PT, I had done all the suggested exercises, but I was still uncomfortable. I was given a recommendation by my doctor for further help at Creative Bodies Fitness. I was greatly helped in re-learning to walk so I didn't hurt myself and by the time of my second knee surgery (sigh), I was in such good shape that my recovery was remarkable to all the professionals who saw me and most importantly to me.
