More About Coach Bob

I have been a shooting coach for over 20 years, leading shooting camps for Shot Doctor Basketball, USA since 1997, and offering private lessons on basketball shooting and offensive skills. I have coached individuals and teams in middle school, high school, community college and semi-pro/post-college levels. I have led camps for Shot Doctor in 14 states, but I base out of Annapolis, MD. My private sessions are usually with one player, but I have trained two at a time (a bit less expensive) as well as team shooting training sessions.

I have a personal best in consecutive free throws made of 142. My practice free throw percentage in the past five years is 91%. My scholastic playing days were decades ago and did not have any big distinction.

A typical session begins with a brief ball-handling warmup, followed by form shooting from about seven feet away. In a first session, I can have an idea about what shooting flaws to address in less than ten shots. From there, the session is tailored to individual needs. As desired, I can help players extend their range, develop triple threat and dribble moves, and work on shots within the context of team offense.

Client Reviews

Bob is a great shooting coach! he really knows how to breakdown shooting to help the player. Money well spent.

Bob Topp’s a very detail oriented coach. He identified several shooting flaws in my sons form. The first session was a excellent one. We’re looking forward to working with coach Bob again.

Bob is very patient and has a great way of teaching the fundamentals of shooting. My daughter has quickly become more aware of the adjustments she needs to make.

Coach Bob was great with my son. He asked him questions about how he misses, long, to the left, short, then had him shoot for about 5 minutes. He made adjustments to my sons shot which I never would have noticed and explained to him what was going on with his shot and why. Very pleased with the method and the results.

Coach Bob has helped my son so much after just two lessons. He is very knowledgeable, kind, and patient. I strongly recommend Coach Bob for anyone trying to improve their game!

Coach Bob has done wonders with my daughter's free throw shot! She's more confident and a better shooter after only 2 sessions!

So far, so good. My nephew is three sessions in with Coach Bob and we just re-upped for another 5 sessions. Looking forward to Bob continuing to work with him on post up moves and modifying his shooting stroke.

Bob is a very good basketball coach/teacher. He is patient and starts with fundamentals. He wants the player to completely understand the whys and hows of shooting so the player can quickly and easily self-correct if their shot is off. We are pleased and my son is totally onboard as a student of the game. Good coach.

Coach Bob, did a good job, very detailed explanation with the kids! Patient as well!

Excellent instructor

My son has improved in both his skills and confidence after training sessions with coach Topp. We plan to continue with additional sessions as a result of the great training.

Coach Bob is a great coach. My daughter struggles with consistent shooting form. Coach Bob has probably been the most effective person to work with her.

Coach Bob has been working with my 12 year old daughter the last few weeks. Coach Bob has worked greatly with her and his shooting techniques has tremendously helped her with her shooting. He's very detailed. Highly recommend coach Bob. Looking forward to watching my daughter grow as a player and applying her training sessions on the court.

Thanks for the feedback Coach!

Our 1st session with Coach Bob was great. He was very knowledgeable with shooting techniques and the game of Basketball. My son, 7th grade, is looking forward to more sessions and perfecting his shot. Thanks Coach Bob!!!

Coach Bob was great! After a few shots, he was able to see the flaws in my son's shot. Also, he was easily able to explain to him what he needed to do differently and why.

Coach Bob is wonderful. He adjusts the session based on the athlete's goals and progress, continually working with the athlete for the best results.
Wish we had found him earlier. Highly recommend Coach Bob!

Very detailed coaching. Worked on every aspect of form.

Bob was great! After one session he found several things for my daughter to work on to better her outside shot. Highly recommend Bob for anyone looking to work on their shooting.

Bob has been fantastic with my son. My son is brand new to basketball and we were hoping for him to learn the very basics of shooting and ball handling. Bob's knowledge of the game is top notch and his approach makes players from every skill level comfortable and open to learning.

Coach Bob is an excellent basketball instructor. He has greatly improved my son's shooting mechanics in a very short period of time. He's great at communicating with him and my son looks forward to practicing the techniques that Coach Bob has taught him. We will signing up for more lessons and we HIGHLY recommend him.

Coach Bob knows his stuff. My daughter reacted very well to the way he taught shooting techniques. We would definitely recommend coach Bob and use him in the future.

Coach Bob is a great coach, very educated also easy to understand

In our trial session Coach Topp was able to establish an excellent rapport with my son. This enabled him to have him analyzing his mistakes, so that he can focus on proper form and technique. We look forward to working with Coach Topp in the future.

Coach Bob was very knowledgeable, patient and flexible. He worked with us to make sure he was giving my daughter the lessons and instructions that would be most useful to her. My husband even improved his shot by listening to Coach Bob's advice from the sidelines! All in all - money well spent. Just wish we would have done it a little earlier!

Coach Bob was great! After just one session Coach Bob was able to transform her shot and correct improper shooting habits. He was able to connect with her in such a way that she understands the why and the what of proper shooting to improve/correct her shooting form. Looking forward to future sessions!

He was a great coach and a fantastic fit for our son!

Coach Bob has a very intuitive approach to help young Shooters learn proper style and accuracy leading to overall confidence in taking the tough shot and making smart decisions on the court. I recommend coach Bob to anyone even remotely thinking about getting a trainer it's well worth the dollar spent and completely changes The Athlete's perspective to the game and personalize it for him this is invaluable for a player to have and Rec Sports

Awesome job!

My daughter just completed her second session with Coach Bob. She has enjoyed both sessions and the improvement in her shot is noticeable. More importantly, he has taught her why it's better and how to recognize her mistakes when she makes them. I'm excited to see her continue to improve her shot with Coach Bob's help.

Coach Bob is an excellent teacher he was very good and instructed me the proper form for shooting as well as the pros of using the proper form. He is very patient, observant and knowledgeable in teaching so I have recommended him to my friends.

It was a great experience for my daughter. I think she will greatly benefit from Coach Bob's training and expertise.

Coach quickly identified our son's area's of improvement and gave him specific details of what to adjust and how to analyze what he needed to improve.

My son really enjoyed his session with Bob. Learned about his shooting. Like the coach Thanks coach bob

Coach Bob was great. Took my two kids to him for help with their shot. Within minutes, he was correcting mechanics and gently directing them throughout the session. Very good experience!

Peyton’s basketball team is practicing Friday evening for the Maryland District 3 AAU championship game that will take place on Saturday. He had a very good weekend shooting the ball last weekend, especially in the semifinals game. Your instruction is really helping, both with his form and with his confidence knowing he is shooting the right way. Thanks! - Mike
Coach Topp has recently been working with my son, a Senior playing basketball locally at Spalding HS, and in a short period of time has helped my son to shoot far more consistently. Coach Topp immediately recognized a couple of very subtle flaws in my son's shot, corrected them and has been able to reinforce proper technique through his many drills. While my son has been fortunate to be coached by many excellent coaches over the years, Coach Topp specializes in shooting and was able to spend the time necessary to really analyze and correct his shot. Even though we are in season, we still try to do a tune up session once in a while to reinforce proper techniques - both physical and mental. I highly recommend Coach Topp. Our only regret is that we did not discover Coach Topp until August before Senior year. Better late than never... Tim Kane
Bob Topp with Shot Doctor Basketball is a skillful and highly effective shooting coach. Bob has worked with my daughter for a number of years and helped her become a technically sound shooter and highly effective and confident basketball player. Bob has a high degree of knowledge about the technical aspects of shooting and effective movement on the court so that a player is able to confidently position themselves for optimal scoring opportunities. He takes a kind and methodical approach to the teaching process and builds a player’s skills from the basic to the highly technical. We have been very pleased with Bob. My daughter is a junior in high school and has played on the varsity team since her freshman year. There are now a number of college coaches and scouts that have contacted my daughter as a prospective college player. Chris H. on December 20, 2015
