Our Why

MBT is focused on building relationships through the game of basketball. Through those relationships, we are able to instill confidence in every player we work with helping take their game to the next level. Our training philosophy is to provide every athlete the opportunity to significantly improve their ability to shoot the basketball, improve their footwork, live decision-making skills, ball handling, defense and overall confidence on and off the floor. We provide positive mentors in each kid’s life by holding them accountable. We tell them what they need to hear instead of what they want to hear.

The MBT Process

It is important with every player we train that we provide a customized plan while setting realistic and measurable goals. Our systematic approach to developing better shooters will dramatically improve performance on the court. Each athlete will take part in a progressive plan to create more repeatable and consistent jump shot. It’s crucial for every athlete to develop the basic-fundamental ground up shooting mechanics and movements through a customized plan to maximize their potential.
