More About Coach Avery

I've coached camps at the University of Indianapolis and the University of Wisconsin-Parkside during the years of 2012 and 2015. I've also worked with the Milwaukee Rebels on the aau circuit in the summer of 2016. I've coached kids at the Chicago Bulls/Soxs academy during the summer of 2016 as well, working with kids from 5 to 14 years of age. In October of 2017 I started working for a program called Hoopsphere where I trained and coached for a year. I coached a total of 7 teams during that time, winning two championships.

For my college career highlights, there is a link I can send if interested.

Vertical increase- box jumps, squat hops, calf raises, step ups, burnouts

Ball handling- stationary pounding (knee, waist, shoulders level), double pounding ball handling (windshields, alternate, finger tip). One and two ball handling on the move.

Shots off screens- correcting footwork. Being able to step with both feet to start your shooting motion. V-cut (setting the defender up to come off screens), working on body control while getting bumped before taking shots. Shots off flare screens.

Shots off the dribble- Going to the right and left hand pull up shots. Step-back shots for more advanced players. Moves (in and out, between the legs, behind the back), change of speeds. Floaters (or push shot)

Footwork- jab stepping without traveling, curling off screens, flare screen footwork, up and under, pro hops and jump stops.

Drills coming off screen and roll action- big men hedging, splitting screens, defender going under the screen

Resistant bands workouts for more advanced players. two ball handling drills, catch and rip through drills, ladders, etc.

Depending on your skill level, these are just a range of drills that can be done.

I would encourage group training as well. Being able to immediately incorporate the skills recently learned through competition is beneficial. Sometimes a player will learn techniques and forget them when they go play on their own. In group training there will always be drills at the lather part of workout where you can work on moves against a defender rather than air. Faster muscle memory.

Client Reviews

Just finished a great training session with coach Avery. I’ll definitely recommend anyone who is looking to improve their all around game. Coach Avery created a plan that works for me, his knowledge and patience helped me correct some of the hitches in my footwork and shot. I noticed the improvements immediately. Look forward to more sessions in the future!

Coach Avery pushes me to do better and he cares for his clients and makes sure that they improve
Avery has been coaching me since this July. We did individual training sessions and team drills together. He is very instructive for me and informative about basketball training, from fundamental ball handling, shooting drills to advanced combo moves. He didn't just show the moves but also tell me the reason behind those and which detail in my demonstrations goes wrong to make it effective. He is a friendly, funny, and passionate guy to me. You can feel his energy in what he's doing and I enjoy training with him a lot.
Coach Avery has been coaching my child since the last 6 months. I see tremendous improvement in my child's shooting / dribbling and passing skills. He is more confident now as he is able to contribute to his teams success. Coach Avery is very approachable and comfortable to work with. He has motivated my child to do better by improving on his weak areas. Overall we are very happy with coach Avery.
