More About Coach Joel

After my college career was over I decided that I wanted to start teaching the next generation of young, excited basketball players. So I created Joel's Basketball Clinics. Countless numbers of young players today do not focus on the skill set that is necessary to take their overall game to the next level. My goal is to help each student individually become a better player and for them to be confident in themselves.

Proper shooting technique and the ability to learn how to shoot the ball with greater success is something I strive to teach each of my students during their sessions with me. Not only do I teach the proper way to shoot the ball but I work with the student in a one on one setting where I can implement proper shooting drills, ball handling drills, and proper footwork, all of which will help them become a better player overall.

Joel's Basketball Clinics company was created in 2007 in California. Since I moved to Las Vegas in 2014 to get my bachelors degree at UNLV, I decided I would continue to teach and train players here in southern Nevada. I teach kids from the ages of 5 up to kids who are currently in high school and college. I have always been focused on passing my knowledge of the game onto the next generation and it gives me great satisfaction knowing I can help them become better and reach their goals.

Besides doing my 1 on 1 and small group sessions of training for the past 10+ years I have also coached at the high school level in California and here in Las Vegas last year. It brings me great joy to help this next generation of basketball players develop their overall game, skill set and confidence in themselves. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals and it gives me great satisfaction seeing you succeed and get better after each and every session with me.

I played high school basketball in California and college basketball in Oregon. I was the leading 3-point percentage (42%) shooter in my league during my four years of high school basketball. I also led my college team in three-pointers made and shooting percentage (43%).

If you want to become a more effective offensive player then I'm the coach for you. I will help you in all aspects of your game. We will work on everything that involves shooting technique, footwork, dribbling and ball handling drills. All of which will help you with your ability to score and become a more well rounded and effective basketball player. My sessions are typically 1 hour in length but I do offer 2 hour sessions for those players who are looking for a more intense workout.

I know all parents have busy lives with work, family and other prior commitments so it can be hard to pick up and drop off your kid to a gym across town from you. I make it a point to make sure each family knows that I will drive to your house (if you have a hoop there), a nearby outdoor park or a gym close by that we have access too, regardless of where you're located in the Las Vegas Valley. I currently have clients in Henderson, Summerlin, North Las Vegas and even Boulder City. My ability to come to you for our basketball sessions allows you to save gas money, and most importantly time. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to working with you in the near future!

Client Reviews

Coach Joel made a huge difference in just a few sessions. We recommend him as he is a great coach. We cannot wait to continue in the future with Joel.

Great coach that took his time training to make sure I had each skill down pat. Seems to care a lot about his clients and is very knowledgeable when it comes to playing basketball at the best level you as an individual are capable of. In only a couple sessions I have seen vast improvement in my game and I look forward to continue improving with him. Thanks a ton Joel

Coach Joel has been working with our 10 year old son for a few months. Coach Joel is enthusiastic, loves basketball and loves teaching basketball. Our son has learned a lot of skills and always looks forward to his next coaching session. He enjoys basketball and his time with Coach Joel has only increased his enjoyment of the game.

Very detailed and patient no matter what skill level you are. Highly recommend for any and all ages!

Coach Joel is an all around great coach. I was concerned my 7 year old wouldn’t enjoy but he gets excited when he on knows Coach Joel is coming. Coach Joel is very engaged and attention to detail with Beckham. Only been two sessions and our son had LS more confidence and has already improved. Thank you Coach

Great tips and details on perfecting my sons shot. Joel was very patient and encouraging. Highly recommend!

Coach Joel has been working with my son for about a month and I have see a vast improvement in my son’s skill level in that time. From the first lesson, I knew that Coach Joel would be a great coach to him based on his style of teaching; he breaks down each step and knows how to communicate so that it’s easy for my son to understand.
He’s great at communicating; he sends me videos of my son so I can see how he’s improving every week!
Great coach overall!

Coach Joel is an excellent coach. Even after two sessions I already feel a great improvement in my shot form and ball handling. If you’re looking to improve your jump shot, definitely book coach Joel!

My son absolutely adores coach Joel. In a matter of just months, from a total newbie to basketball, he has improved dramatically. My son looks forward to learning more from coach Joel and his outstanding training.

Great coach, very professional and would definitely refine you to your maximum potential.

As a former high school and college player I've had my fair share of coaches and shooting experts, and Coach Joel surpasses all of them. I was injured and have been out of the game for years, but I have been wanting to join a rec league for the longest time but I couldn't regain my shot and ball handling skills I once had. After training with Coach Joel my shot and ball handling are significantly better with each passing lesson and I am surprised at how much I am learning. The intricate details of a simple jump shot are often overlooked by coaches and it takes a real expert to be able to analyze a players shot and pick up on subtle corrections that make all the difference, and Joel was able to do that. I highly recommend.

Coach Joel is AWESOME! After 1 session you could see a noticeable difference in my sons game. Would definitely recommend!

We’re traveling to Las Vegas for holiday and my son (15) booked Coach Joel for 1hr coaching. He was so happy about the lesson, Coach corrected his shooting form and dribbling technique. Definitely we will look for Coach Joel for our next visit to Las Vegas

Understands in detail every component of a good shot, and knows how to explain it. Also knows what you need to do in the sessions to get you from where you are to where you want to be as quickly as possible.

I've had other coaches in the past and I can say Joel is a professional grade above them. He also is very enthusiastic about the game and you getting better

Great coach, takes his time explaining to players the ins and outs of the game. Sessions feel very crafted around the player. Joel is a very experienced coach who easily explain his points. Highly recommended

Coach Joel is a great guy and an awesome coach. He provides an excellent foundation and has the ability to completely break down and then fix a broken shot, or improve your current form. His coaching has really improved not only my shooting but overall play as well. I would highly recommend coach Joel to anyone who wants to get better at any level.

Coach Joel is absolutely the best at helping you in learning the proper form in shot making, showing you how your stand and feet position helps improve your ability
to handle the basketball better...

Coach Joel is a great coach. He can really help anybody any age with fundamentals and help them improve in all areas of basketball. I strongly recommend taking lessons with him if you’re really trying to better your game.

Coach Joel runs a very good session. Really detailed on teaching the right skills. My daughter had a lot of fun with the session. Highly recommended!

Thank you Coach

Coach Joel rally worked on improving my son’s form and ball handling. He really enjoyed the session and is looking forward to working with him on a regular basis.

I noticed improvement in my son’s game after just one session with Coach Wright. He is extremely knowledgeable and very detail oriented. His sessions are all about IQ and getting better. That’s exactly what my son needed. I highly recommend Coach Wright.

Coach Joel is an exceptional trainer. Over 5 sessions, he increased my basketball IQ, changed my whole shot form, and made me a better ball handler. Coach Joel broke down my shot completely and is making sure I’m shooting the ball the right way. Coach Joel is a trainer I definitely recommend working out with.

Coach Joel first stood in the way he went about making sure we could make the session happen. We are on vacation for a week in Vegas and he went the extra mile to make it happen. His guidance to Jamal was great and his manner in building a relationship with Jamal was great.

Joel was best coach we ever had and we have used coach up for a couple years

I’ve only had one session so far but immediately I could tell he was a great coach. Very patient and understanding which are great for a coach. What I respect the most about him is he isn’t trying in to change you but, improve you. Hope to have many more sessions.

Great coach, has a ton of Basketball knowledge and is able to teach and coach that in an effective manner. My son has already benefited from the session and we look forward to more in depth/further time with Coach Joel. If your son or daughter is willing to put in work, Coach Joel is a great option for them!

Coach Joel is a very fun, uplifting, and knowledgeable basketball coach. I started training with Joel a few months ago, and my game has gotten significantly better in many different aspects. Not only have I learned more about my basketball skills, but I have also learned that positivity is key and to never give up. So many parts of my game that were lackluster were tweaked to the best that they can be. Working with Coach Joel has been an amazing time and I hope to be able to continue for a long time.
Joel was great with my 9 yr. old and 5 yr. old daughters. He selected a lot of really good skill building activities. They really liked doing the drills he selected and the girls have been asking me. 'When are we doing Coach Joel's drills again?' Joel was professional about confirming the appointment and I was very pleased with the lesson.
