Personal training has become the next-level in player development. Finding the right trainer at the right price helps the young player go from average to good, from good to great.....it helps players focus on their craft, develop new skills, and improve the habits of focus and commitment necessary for "next-level" success!
Elite Basketball Group's team of top-level coaching talent as well as their supporting staff are available for 1-on-1 and small group training sessions that run roughly from the end of travel season through the beginning of the winter school season (late July through the end of September). Coaches can train beyond these dates by request. Contact us by email to request a training coach for your son or daughter's personal basketball development.

At that camp he was discovered by the legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight and offered a Division I Basketball scholarship. Kwame transferred to the legendary Lawrence North H.S.(Mike Conley, Greg Oden) in Indianapolis, where he was also recruited by over 35 Division I schools.
