Basketball may be a team sport, but the coaches at Minnesota Developmental Basketball know that mastering the game takes individual attention. Since 1993, they've shaped more than 35,000 athletes—including players who’ve gone on to play on Division I teams and even professionally in the NBA D-League. Led by Kevin Kelley, who served as assistant men’s basketball coach at Winona State University, the staff imparts their wisdom to young players of all experience levels. They help them with everything from developing fundamentals to boosting their vertical leap without the aid of jet-pack shoes. Here are a few of the services they offer:
Private lessons for individuals, groups of up to four, or even entire teams
Strength, speed, and vertical-training workouts to boost athletic performance, reduce injury, and increase confidence
Summer mini-camps, in which they help athletes perfect specific skills, such as sinking shots, handling the ball, or mastering point-guard tactics.
