Optimum Basketball Trainer

AS A TRAINER

Casey has a lot of knowledge in what it takes to become a successful player on and off the court, and he uses that knowledge to give proper guidance in each training session. He is a stickler on the fundamentals of the game, and knows that each player needs to have a strong base of footwork and proper mechanics to become a better player.  Casey does a great job of identifying each players bad habits and transforming them into good habits during his sessions.  Not every training session will be the same as it varies from individual to individual, as each player has different areas of weakness they need to work on. Casey will help take your game to the next level through hard work, focus, discipline, and execution in his training sessions.
