If you have a young player, boy or girl, Ben Badeen is the ideal basketball trainer to help your youngster perfect their skills and fundamentals in their efforts to not only make the team, but be an integral part of that team. Ben played for me at Holy Family University and the same fire he played with, he brings in his ability to communicate with trainees the real ways to become good.

WHAT IS BEN BADEEN BASKETBALL?

Ben Badeen Basketball believes in using passion to inspire and through that inspiration empowering all of those around us! Ben always gives 110 percent of his passion and energy to the players whenever they step on the court with him. His practice environment radiates intensity and pushes players out of their comfort zone creating an atmosphere that is much more challenging than the game.

As a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer with a specialization in sports performance, his system is based on sound exercise science principles. He teaches players to increase their flexibility, strength, speed, explosiveness, coordination, and neuromuscular efficiency to correlate into game efficient movement. 

He brings a combination of skill situational and game situational training to his approach, believing a player cannot have one without the other. He emphasizes a player needs to possess a strong individual skill set to perform in the game, but a player must also have the ability to process game decisions and situations to put that skill set to its highest use.

Ben Badeen Basketball teaches players "How to play, not plays." Players will walk away from his system with a proper understanding of floor spacing, sharing the game - ball movement - making the extra pass, movement without the ball, setting/reading screens, read and react offensive principles, man to man defensive concepts, and an advanced level of individual skill every player needs to perform best in the game. And most importantly, players will learn how to work hard, become leaders in the gym and life, and make everyone else around them better!
