Our Training Programs have 3 main areas of focus you can choose from: 

Basketball Skills Training 

Our Basketball Skills Training is done in a Small Group and in special circumstances we offer Private Training.  All of our 200+ College Players trained in competitive Small Groups… it works!

Basketball Shooting Training 

Evolution has developed some of the best shooters in the entire country.  We’re not exaggerating,  John Schoof led the NCAA in in 3 point shooting percentage in 2013!

Basketball Performance Training 

Our Performance Training is built on three main principles, 1) Flexibilty and Mobility 2) Speed and Agility 3) Power and Strength.  In today’s game, basketball skills is not enough to compete.

Our Small Group Training has 3 areas of focus:

  • Skills Training  During our Skills Training sessions we focus heavily on general skills that every player needs such as ball handling, footwork, finishing, shooting, passing, etc.  The groups are fast paced, exciting, and push players to find their potential.

  • Shooting Training
    Evolution is the leader in shooting instruction.  Our players have achieved incredible success shooting the ball including leading the NCAA in 3 point shooting % (John Schoof, 2013), and setting an NCAA record for field goal % (Lisa Murphy, 2017).

  • Performance Training (Speed Agility Strength)
    Our Performance Training starts players with flexibility, mobility, and injury prevention.  We then build strength and explosiveness to create the strongest and most athletic players possible.

What Clients Say

I have had the pleasure to watch Alex work on numerous occasions. I am always impressed by his ability to conduct a demanding and skill intensive workout that his players enjoy doing.
Jay Larranaga, Asst Coach, Boston Celtics
Evolution provides a focus on skills that coaches are unable to provide in a team environment, yet are critical to an individual’s development. The Evolution staff is extremely knowledgeable in the detailed elements of skills development, and have the ability to translate into digestible and fun training techniques…
Clay Buckley, National Champion at Duke and parent of 2 of Evolution's players
I believe that Evolution Basketball Training is superior to other programs because of the experience of the staff, knowledge of what it takes to play at the next level; and a track record of elevating player skills from good to great.
Chuck Kuzma, Former player at Navy and parent of Richard Kuzma (Navy)
