There is so much that goes into the development of a basketball player and often players only focus on one aspect of the game, the physical skill development. Throughout my career as a high level player and a coach, I have found that there are 3 main skill areas that each player needs to have obsessive focus and intention on if they are serious about improving their game and taking it to the next level.

1. Physical Skills:

  • Basketball Skill Development
  • Game Play Training
  • Strength Training
  • Conditioning
  • Nutrition
  • & Many More….

2. Basketball IQ Skills:

  • Game Film Video Analysis
  • Game Play Evaluations
  • Studying The Craft Of Other Players
  • & Many More….

3. Mental & Emotional Skills:

  • Goal Setting
  • Ability To Overcome Challenges
  • Time Management
  • Leadership
  • Communication
  •  & Many More


Passion4ball offers up Life Coaching & Player Mentoring  to focus on the area that most players often neglect: The Mental & Emotional Skills.  Passion4ball Life Coaching & Player Mentoring consists of a 8 week program that focuses on not only teaching players mental and emotional skills, but also providing them with real processes to train and develop these skills.  The sessions will be 1 hour, once a week, for 8 weeks (an 8 week program) where the Passion4ball Life Coach will build a relationship, build trust, and challenge the player to successfully complete the program.  The player will be responsible to come to each session with high energy to communicate openly and honestly, ready to learn, and with the expectation that they will take the homework provided during the session and implement into their training and life.  After the 8 week sessions are complete, there are options for continued weekly or bi-weekly check-ins, focused sessions on a desired topic, or advancement to a new program (coming soon)!
