We are living in the times where so many players want to play professionally. Job to player ratios are tremendously wop-sided and quite frankly, not everyone has the ability to play at the pro level.
Statistics at face value should not detour a dream but it should incline he/she to fail quickly. My desire is to provide the platform for aspiring professional athletes to fail. Failing in life especially in the sports industry allows a person to move on with “Plan B” rapidly, instead of spending countless hours and money on tryouts, open runs, social media scams, etc…
Provide 3 -6 days of high intensity training in sports and career industries in order to progress in life beyond basketball.
Sessions consist of players able to work on their craft, but more importantly expand their knowledge on financial markets, insurance products, career opportunities, and the basketball business; while having open panel discussions with sports agents, chief executive officers, accountants, financial advisors, marketing directors and many others.
Even for those fortunate enough to play at a pro level, he/she can’t play forever. Living skills trump basketball skills.
“I was excited at the opportunity to learn and train with high-caliber coaches and players but a little unclear on the full scope of the camp.
Once in camp, I felt great, because the days were busy and well structured. Like anything some days were better than others based on physically toll (which you could control if you ate, recovered, and prepared properly).
The experience was invaluable in terms of the number of accomplished individuals you could network with and learn from. Because it is essentially 8 to 10 hour days you build relationships with fellow players effectively which is always inspiring and helps raise your training level. Again the individuals including the day-to-day trainers and coaches are very open to feedback and discussions that allow you to improve yourself and learn how to not just be a more successful basketball player but a professional in life.
I am currently taking the lessons learned and staying active to continue improvement in my game and have made sure to stay in touch with Noah and other coaches like Kendel as I move through new processes. In terms of basketball, I am applying to universities such as Sheffield and Durham to get into Post Grad programs and play on the team for the next school. Also, trying to take financial, life, and social lessons learned to improve me, my family, and my community.”
