About this pro

We focus on developing athletes skill as well as increasing their basketball IQ. We achieve this by zeroing in on the "WHY" of the moves we are teaching, this assists the athlete in understanding why each move is important and when to do it at a given moment while competing. 
Our high intensity 4th Quarter Training challenges our athletes by pushing them in combination of skill training and intense physical workouts to simulate the environment of a 4th quarter close game experience. This training prepares our athletes to execute comfortably and effectively when competing in a real game.

I love the process!!! I love watching my clients as they develop and their confidence grows and reaches new levels in their game.  These lessons they learn about the process to achieve transfer over to other areas of their lives.

    I started working with chad in 5th grade. He took me from one of the bottom players in my class in 5h grade to one of the top players in the Lansing area by my freshman year of high school, and eventually earned a opportunity to play college basketball.

    Chad takes the time to focus on the individual needs of his athletes. He's positive and encouraging while also motivating an athlete to push to their limits!

    I love how coach Wilkerson was able to instill the importance of fundamentals over flash in the age of kids wanting to jelly and shoot nothing but 3’s.

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

I have the parent and athlete complete an evaluation of the athlete. This gives me an understanding of where the athlete and parents believe where the skill level is for the athlete. This also gets the athlete engaged mentally and creates a sense of accountability moving forward. Keeping the athlete mentally engaged in the process from the beginning has shown to have better buy-in from the athlete and better results. 

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

I have played up to the college level.  I have played overseas in Holland as a teenager which gave me a very different view on I how to approach the game.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have with all different levels of players over the last 17 years from kids just being introduced to the game professionals.

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

I would always make sure to have a conversation with the coach to see how well they are able to explain in detail what their training plan is and if they touch base on the why behind drills. Too many times I have seen a player look great in drills but does not know how to transfer over those skills in a game situation.
