Just Shoot

Meet David, a young basketball player who was reluctant to shoot in games. His mom recognized her son's need for skill development and hired Coach Anthony through CoachUp.

After a month of one-on-one coaching, the kid who passed up three pointers is now knocking them down. He is walking taller and smiling wider, all because he and Anthony are working toward reaching Another Level™.

A CoachUp Success Story


Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the country, and continues to grow globally. Historically, the US national team has dominated, however in the past 15 years, countries like Spain, Greece and China have improved dramatically. To be the best at basketball, players need to have great athleticism, technique, and knowledge of the game. Some of the best current NBA players have improved their technique and basketball IQ by working with private coaches.

Some of the best shooters of all time, such as Ray Allen, Reggie Miller and Larry Bird, worked with private coaches throughout their careers to improve their jump shot. All of them spent hundreds of hours in the gym with their coaches taking thousands of shots until they had their form down. Some like Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird, even made sure that they could shoot well with both hands. It’s common for players later in their careers, such as Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, to focus on their shooting. More young athletes are starting to work with private coaches to improve their game and perfect their skills.

CoachUp is the only platform that provides athletes the ability to reach thousands of basketball coaches across the nation. We even have coaches who specialize in certain positions. Brandon Ball, former point guard at Michigan Tech, works on ball handling and passing with point guards. Ball also played professionally in the ABA/PBL. CoachUp also features Bobby Kirby, who has over 15 years of experience turning basketball players into professional athletes. Kirby goes above and beyond the physical aspects of the game to focus on importance of mental strength in basketball. His high basketball IQ makes him the ideal mentor to any young athlete.
