Ask about our basketball clinics.

Sessions are tailored to the athlete depending on their position, age, skill set, or goals. I do not use gimmicks, and I do not waste time. Sessions are designed to address weaknesses, learn proper mechanics, and develop muscle memory through game-like repetitions. All drills are competitive and game-like. The drills are proven to carry over into 5 vs. 5 games. Many trainers will impress athletes with "cool gimmicks", but basketball is a 5 vs. 5 game. If drills do not carry over into the games, then the athlete is not getting better at playing the game of basketball. I also teach athletes how to properly train on their own in order to get the necessary repetitions. Building muscle memory is a process and it must be done using proper fundamentals.

A typical workout session includes:
-Warm up with various dribbling drills: one/two ball dribbling
-Form/set shooting: Focus on proper mechanics
-Stepping into shot: 1-2 step with inside foot, Jump Stop
-Shooting off the dribble: Pump fake 1 dribble pull-ups, shooting off of ball screens, dribble pull-up shots, etc.
-Getting open: Freeing yourself three different ways - V-cut, reverse pivot, stepping over defender's path
-Offensive moves: Rip moves, jab steps, pump fakes, triple threat, euro step, step hop, spin moves, etc.
-Post moves: jump hooks, up and under, spin move, double up and under, face up moves, etc.
-Free throw mechanics throughout the workout
-Play 1-on-1, king of the court, etc.
-Defensive fundamentals: Closing out, boxing out/rebounding, pick and roll defense, guarding on and off the ball, etc.

Tom is awesome! Super detailed and patient. He’s helping my 11 year old son dial in his footwork and shot mechanics. Highly recommended

Session was well planned, organized and conducted in a professional manner. Technique and moves introduced to be practiced individually. Great enthusiasm.

Tom worked with my 11 year old son on basic basketball skills. He enjoyed every minute of the session and was inspired by Tom’s coaching. We’ll definitely book more sessions with Tom.

Tom did an outstanding job

This was our first experience with Coach Up and Coach Tom did a great job with my 13 year old son. He was patient, knowledgeable and taught him some great skills. He really helped build my son's confidence from just one session. We look forward to working with Coach Tom for more sessions.
