Vern has been amazing with my son. His confidence in his ball handling and “taking the shot” has improved tremendously. He has taken individual and group basketball sessions with Vern, as well as individual strength and conditioning sessions, that have carried over to his confidence and abilities in all sports as well as life. He looks forward to growing both as an athlete and individual with continued training sessions.
I have been training with Laverne for the last seven yeas, starting my sophomore year in high school all the way through college. He has not only helped develop my fundamentals, but has helped improve my strategic understanding of the game of basketball. he is able to personalize each training session, whether it be in one on ones or in group settings.
Training with Laverne has helped improve my strength and skills. He pushes me to write down goals, then creates workouts to push me towards those goals. I have gotten much stronger, and improved my game physically and mentally. Laverne attended several of my high school games. Even during the Covid stay-home orders, we Zoom about goals, mental game, and continue virtual workouts.
Laverne does a good job of combining hard work with a motivational positive mental approach to training and athletics that can be applied to other life skills. By training with him our daughter has gained skills, strength and mental focus.
I trained with Laverne for a few years. He was a huge part in my development through late middle and high school. I felt as if I was a lot quicker, a better shooter, and far better ball handler than I was before I went to him. Anyone who asks me about/for a basketball trainer, I immediately recommend Laverne.
