Basketball Training

Basketball Training

Athletic Gaines is the top basketball training facility in Minnesota. From your first session, you’ll experience why so many are choosing us as their basketball home. Our trainers have experience training everyone from beginners to NBA and WNBA players. Train where the pros train and achieve your basketball potential! 

Our small group training is a great opportunity to develop your individual skills and immediately implement them in game-like situations. Our group training sessions include:

  • Small Group Sizes:  Our groups are formed based on the skill level and age of the athlete and typically have between 5-8 athletes per trainer, per session.
  • Session Structure:  Each 1-hour session will consist of individual skill development in ball-handling, shooting, footwork, and more. Each session will also have time dedicated to ensuring that these skills are put into practice through competitive drills and game-play. 
  • Flexible Schedule:  Whether you sign up for one of our monthly memberships or a session package, you’ll have access to our online scheduling platform as well as our mobile app where you will be able to view the schedule, sign up for training sessions, modify your schedule and more! 

We offer a variety of memberships and session packages to fit your goals and schedule. Our basketball training can also be combined with our sports performance training that focuses on strength, balance, agility, vertical leap and injury prevention.

At Athletic Gaines, our mission is to build foundational strength, speed, and agility with a focus on functional movement and injury prevention. Many of our basketball players choose to add on our sports performance training to their basketball skills training. It’s a convenient option versus traveling to multiple facilities to train. Our athletes that have participated in both have seen tremendous advances in their game and overall athletic ability. We offer Combination Memberships to take advantage of both basketball and sports performance training.

Our Team Concepts Camp is designed to build you basketball IQ, understand how to play within a team structure and build skills that will show up in games. During this 4-day camp you’ll work on building skills that can translate into a team game such as pick-and-roll offense, offensive spacing, shooting within the flow of an offense and how to defend as a team. While the camp will focus on team concepts, this is not a team camp and is open to individuals. If you’d like to get a group to sign up together, we encourage that, but it is not necessary. This camp is designed to develop you as an individual and build a better understanding of team concepts.

Our drills are a fit for whatever level you’re currently at. Just starting out and want to be able to dribble between your leg? Got you covered. Already mastered the basics?

Time to become a knock down shooter from any situation! Our Advanced Shooting Camp is designed for players that have played competitively at higher levels and are ready for the next step. We always start with the fundamentals to ensure that you can be consistent with your shot from anywhere on the floor. From there, we’ll work on the finer details of your shot including the quickness and height of your release, being able to knock down shots in a catch-and-shoot and off the dribble. Our competitive drills will simulate game situations allowing you to immediately bring your new skills to the court.

Want to be a great scorer? Then you need to have a lot of skills in your bag. Our Scoring Camp will help you develop those skills and add more to your bag. Getting downhill to attack the basket, understanding how to move your defender to get to your spot, finishing through contact and building your confidence to score the basketball whenever you want are all components of our camp. You’ll walk away from this camp knowing what you need to continue to work on to become a better scorer. And don’t forget about being able to defend. While this is a scoring camp, there will be plenty of opportunity to defend and understand how to defend a scorer.
