Developing players since 1996!
To become better you have to dedicate time to doing the things that will make you better.  The extra time you spend in the gym can help you make the team, propel you ahead of those who play in front of you, or it can set you apart as one of the best players in the city or your conference.  Athleticism can make you a competitive player, but being fundamentally sound can increase your versatility and value.  It is important to evaluate your skill level and determine what goal you want to achieve as a player (i.e., make the team, start varsity, play college basketball, etc...).  Since everyone's goals are different, our one-on-one sessions are designed to give each player the individual attention needed to improve their basketball ability and take their game to the next skill level.  Sessions focus on identifying weaknesses and developing strategies and drills in an individual workout that will improve and punish each weakness while strengthening existing abilities in order to meet individual goals.  Sessions are intense and the player is pushed hard to accomplish their goal of improving their skill level.

    From defense to offense, the player is evaluated and given instruction so they can progress and improve.  Catch and pivot, free throw shooting, defense, ball-handling,  quickness, stamina, movement without the ball, shooting with and without the dribble, low post moves, as well as other aspects of the game of basketball are evaluated and improved upon each training session.  Sessions are personal and designed to take the time allotted to improve that player’s skill level and develop confidence and consistency in their abilities so they can advance in the game of basketball, and meet their personal basketball goals.

     In addition to the weekly workout instruction and training students receive, FBA instructors also utilize video tape analysis and other aspects of training evaluation to elevate, enhance, and propel a student's progress.  Other basketball training aids are also utilized by our instructors to help accelerate a solid fundamental base, greater skill development, and/or greater workout intensity.

The Fundamentals Basketball Academy personal instruction program is a weekly workout  guaranteed to improve your skills.  This is not a camp or a clinic.  This is an individual training program designed to help you get the personal results that you want and desire.

"You must be EAGER to become the Very Best 
that you are capable of Becoming!"
- John Wooden (UCLA)
Depending upon the skills and/or position in which a student is training, instructors generally rotate their workout schedule weekly (i.e., week 1 - shooting, week 2 - ball-handling, etc..).  This format grants us the opportunity to focus specifically on individual skill development while maintaining gamelike intensity and training focus. PLEASE NOTE:  We typically spend the first two to four training sessions in evaluation.  Instructors do very little fundamental adjustments at this time so proper skill evaluation is achieved.  Once a proper skill evaluation is achieved, instructors will then begin to structure training sessions around current skill levels and ability.  Since each student's skill level is different, the rate and level at which we begin our training varies.  Our main goal is to insure a solid fundamental structure so we have a great base on which to build and develop a better basketball player.  After six to eight weeks we will introduce video tape analysis to our students to help accelerate their development.  Video tape helps students visually identify their strengths and helps them make quicker adjustments to the areas in which they have struggled to master; whether it be footwork or a proper follow through on their shot.

      All students retain their training slot unless they notify their instructor of an intended or necessary change or they drop their training schedule for any reason.

We have some students who travel up to 75 miles for our one-on-one personal basketball instruction weekly with others making arrangements for special one-on-one training sessions on the weekends or during the summer from as far away as Iowa and New York.  Those that train with us have tremendous results and highly recommend our personal training program.  To see what they have to say, go to "What are they saying?" and read their comments. 
This is the hottest program we offer!
We guarantee that you will get results!!!
Partner and Small Group Training sessions incorporate the One-on-One personal training format. Partners (two individuals) and Small Groups (three individuals) that have the same basketball goals and objectives team together in a workout to push and challenge one another.  The Partner Training sessions are intense and designed to achieve the same goal: improve and succeed.  So if you have a friend or a teammate that you would like to train with then this program would benefit you and your training needs.
