More About Coach Will

I have trained elementary, middle school, college, and professional players over the last 9 years since my retirement from professional basketball.

Throughout my basketball career I have had the luxury of playing at the highest levels. Being named a high school All-American while playing for National powerhouse OakHill Academy. In my 2 years at Duke I lead my team to a 69-6 record and National runner-up in 1999 the two years I was in college. After being drafted 14th overall I spent 3 years in the NBA and 9 years in Europe.

During my training sessions I put the players through drills to improve their weaknesses at game speed. I believe in having players work through uncomfortable situations. To get better you have to become comfortable at being uncomfortable. I love energy and positive encouragement in my workouts, a player should be able to work hard and know he or she is not going at it alone just like in a real game. I have worked with and/or coached.

Extremely happy With Coach Will A.! Jumped straight in full speed working to help my daughter start to become the player she wants to be. Anyone in the Augusta/Aiken area who's child has a strong desire (or themselves) to become the best basketball player they can be needs to know how lucky we are to have Coach Will A. in the area that can pass his knowlege of the game/experience and his knowlege of what it takes to be successful at a high level in our area!

Excellent drills. Excellent coaching.
Will is excellent with the ball-handling and shooting off the dribble drills I gave 5 stars even though I have to look at Duke apparel every week 😀 Go Green!
He gives me confidence and pushes me hard every time, making sure I’m never lacking
Will Avery provides the necessary training my son needed in order for him to be able to compete at the highest level. Will's experience is shown in every training session.
My overall experience is always great when training with Will Avery Basketball. My dribbling skills have improved from the drills we start with and I love the challenge of the other drills/skills during the sessions.
Let me start by saying Will Avery is an awesome role model for raising basketball players! My son Ashton has the utmost respect for Coach Avery. Working with Coach Avery has been nothing but a positive and skill ganging experience! I really love how he doesn’t just allow the players to go through the motion of the drills. He doesn’t mind calling them out when they need to perfect a drill or basketball motion. He does it in such a caring way to where the players don’t feel uncomfortable being corrected. Coach Avery is a patient, people person and he truly wants to see all the players improve. Not only does he care about the kids improving their basketball performance, but he also upholds academics just as much! That’s a plus for me as an educator! We love working with Coach Avery and he will forever have our support! See ya on Sunday Coach!
I like that it was different ball-handling and combination moves then I am used to. It really helped me improve on the things I needed to.
My son Aiden loved doing Will's basketball workouts!! He said he learned a lot of ball-handling techniques and loved the intensity!!
It is very interactive, focus areas are specific and well rounded. I have learned a lot and was challenged in many areas of my game! Also, love the way the drills are thought and how he keeps building. It truly a pleasure and opportunity of a lifetime!
Will Avery’s professional basketball skills and expertise are exceptional and his ability to share his talent and coach our daughter is priceless. He is genuinely a compassionate trainer and works extremely well with children. Trinity’s game has escalated tremendously and we attribute her improvement on the court to Will Avery’s phenomenal training.
Very knowledgeable, but also spent time on the small details of how to get better.
Coach Avery has patience and pays attention to details.
