The philosophy is simple. Perfect the basics. The most effective way to develop youth basketball players into well-rounded athletes is to provide them with a base. A starting point. A strong set of fundamental skills – Ball handling, shooting, passing, and defensive techniques that will serve as a platform to their individual development. Too many middle, high school, even college players lack basic fundamental skills. And it’s these deficiencies that prove to be the barrier between success and failure. Between good and great. Athleticism, talent and luck will only carry an athlete so far. It’s the hours and hours of professional instruction; Of grinding. Of beating on one’s craft that make the difference. At LaB Works Training, not only do we work hard, we work with a purpose.

Coach LeNedra is an excellent coach! She quickly connected with my daughter and was able to identify key areas for improvement. My daughter came away from the first session with new skills and drills to practice and is very excited to learn more from Coach L. We highly recommend Coach L!

Coach LaNedra is exactly the coach we were looking for. Someone who is engaging with my girls, knowledgeable, and can share that knowledge in very specific ways to improve their performance and build their confidence. The sessions were fast but packed full of actionable lessons they can take with them not only to the soccer field but any sport or athletic endeavor they have in the future. We are super excited about the next session!

My daughter had a great session with Coach LaNedra. LaNedra was very positive and encouraging, especially when conveying items that needed to be work on.

Coach LaNedra really stresses fundamentals and builds upon that to level up every athlete. Very knowledgeable, personable, and professional. I definitely recommend Coach LaNedra to train your athlete.

Anyone who can keep my son’s attention for an hour is worthy of a 6 star review (unfortunately, I’m limited to just 5 stars)!

I’ve been trying different personal coaches for my son. Coach L is the first coach who was able to keep my son engaged for the entire hour. Coach L has all kinds of props and challenges that make learning the fundamentals of basketball fun. Even I was getting hyped and cheering on my son (and we talkin’ practice…not a game, but practice…). Coach L even went so far as recording my son doing multiple drills so that he could specifically see how she wanted him to make adjustments. The results were literally immediate.

The true test about the session was my son’s feedback on the ride home. He wants to have more coaching sessions with Coach L. We are already booked for more sessions over the summer and will continue to work with Coach L to build up my son’s skills. I’m looking forward to seeing how this translates on to the court!

Thank you Coach L!

Talented, knowledgeable and professional with all age groups. Terrific at breaking down instructions and getting the good stuff out of the athlete. Coach L is the real deal!

Coach L is amazing. Focuses on the fundamentals and is kind. If I hadn’t moved to the east coast I’d definitely be training with them again.

So further into our daughter's experience with Coach LaNedra - she is a star! Despite never having played basketball before in any organized fashion, our daughter decided to go out for the basketball team at a large high school and is having a great season, loving the game. LaNedra is truly the one who helped develop her confidence to go for it! In addition to her expertise in the game, she 'gets' the big picture and really translated the life lesson of 'being brave and taking a risk'. So grateful! You can't go wrong with Coach LaNedra!

Fantastic coach with deep basketball expertise and attention to detail!

As an adult learner of the game, I’ve tried many different ways to pick up the fundamentals and progress (with limited success), so I’m excited to see how much I can improve with Coach LaNedra’s expert help!

Coach LeNedra is an absolute professional. We had our first evaluation session with her for our son who is 8 years old for agility with respect to Basketball. Her attention to details are impeccable. We will continue to work with her for long time and looking forward for a positive and difference making contribution towards our sons growth.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Coach L is professional, personable, works well with kids, and is a natural teacher. She really believes in teaching the fundamentals of the game like stance, ball handling, dribbling, footwork, and shooting form. Young athletes must learn these basic skills before they can play the game at their best. She models all of the skills and really walks through everything with her students. She is serious and encouraging all at the same time. My son really enjoyed his session.

I was highly impressed with Coach L. I am so glad I chose her for my son and I highly recommend her to other parents. You will not be disappointed!

Best coach! We got soooo lucky. Coach L showed up for our first session on time and with her coaching equipment and she was spot on. My son is so excited.

Coach L started training my son Kendall on a regular basis when he was just 9 years old. He had been receiving personal training lessons since the age of 5 from former NBA players, college and AAU coaches. He also had attended various Nike Elite, AAU select, and college basketball camps all-around the Las Vegas community. To moment he began training with LaNedra, we knew we had found the missing link in his development. Coach L has a gift for teaching and training young athletes. Where most trainers show the functionality of an athletic movement, Coach L has the ability to break movement and body coordination down in a way that youth athletes are able to understand and create a mind / body connection with. Kendal is now a senior in high school and is on his way to play Division I basketball at a small college in California. We are so thankful for her presence in our sons life. Not only does she emphasize the physical and skill-based demands of the basketball, she taught our son the importance of hard work. Of repetition. Of doing the small things right. Thank you, Coach L.
Coach LaNedra Brown has been working with my daughter for several months and it has made a remarkable impact on her game. The sessions are well structured & focused on fundamentals helping a young high school athlete master the skill sets needed to play basketball at a higher level. Individual techniques are broken down into their component parts as Ms. Brown first demonstrates how the skill is performed. Following each session a practice plan for the week is made to re-enforce & put to memory what was learned. I was most impressed by the professionalism and manner Coach L engaged my daughter during their time on the court. I have to underline my daughters self confidence & love for the game of basketball grew as we returned each time for another session. As a parent observing this wonderful educator & mentor/coach working with our daughter we knew this program was the right choice…..
Solomon is a gifted athlete. Before working with Coach L, he had absolutely no professional basketball training. His shooting form was terrible, basketball IQ, non-existent, and he had no control over his athletic ability. Coach L was able to take this block of clay, better known as my son, and mold him into a polished, fundamentally sound high school and AAU star. She was the best thing that could have happened to us. Rather than fixing bad habits learned from watching too much NBA, playground ball and poor coaching, Solomon is building his skill set and foundation. He is head and shoulder above his peers. Working with LaNedra has been a beautiful experience.
