When it comes to the safety and the education of your youth, there are a lot of questions to ask and a lot of answers to provide. Here is a collection of the most common questions parents and youth ask about the Basketball Lab.

If you have more questions, please feel free to send an e-mail to:

The Basketball Lab utilizes training and coaching techniques developed for professional and college-level players. In short, the youth who attend our trainings will learn more and become better players.

Boys and girls ages 4-18 who like playing basketball, who want to play middle school, high school or community basketball teams and who aspire to play college basketball or professional ranks.

The youth will develop an understanding of how to become the best player they can be on the court. This translates to an enhanced sense of self-confidence in life. They will learn by practicing specifically designed drills and techniques in an intensive, but fun, basketball environment.

Your youth will need a proper pair of basketball shoes and apparel. Shorts and Basketball Lab training t-shirts are appropriate. You will want to provide them with a full spill-proof water bottle. (There are no refrigerators available, so pack accordingly.) The most important thing the youth need to bring is a good attitude and a willingness to work hard and to learn.

All of our trainings take place during the day only, many during weekdays, others on weekends. In all cases, you will need to make arrangements to drop off and pick up your youth each day.

All players are separated into different groups by age, gender, and skill level but sometimes they may play together.

This is one of the aspects that separate the Basketball Lab from other basketball training programs. With our highly-skilled trainers they are able to make an impact with their individual attention to each youth.

Youth benefit greatly from additional sessions of Basketball Lab. On each return trip to training, youth work on mastering the lessons from previous sessions. This strengthens the “muscle memory” started in the initial training. Additionally, as youth progress, they learn higher level skills.
Our top trainers all have college basketball experience. All receive specialized training from Basketball Lab founder, Bryan Edwards. Bryan Edwards has played Professional Basketball in the USA, Europe & Australia.
Yes. The fundamental drills remain the same for all skill levels. As players progress in abilities, they are given higher level drills.

It is not uncommon for youth to occasionally miss a day or have to leave early or arrive late on some days due to various reasons. We realize that family schedules require flexibility. If they miss instructions for a new drill or ball-handling move, we will ensure they get time with a trainer to bring them back up to speed.

It may be. Our trainings are a lot of work. We do have special trainers trained to work with this young age group. We do not push them as hard as the older age groups. Some youth will move up with the older youth; most will stay at their age level. There are very few youth who cannot meet the rigors of training, or who do not have the stamina or physical abilities required.

No. We have elementary, middle school & high school youth who attend our trainings. Most of the drills and teaching techniques used at the Basketball Lab are the same ones used at the college level & professional levels. The trainings are great preparation for college-level competition.

Safety is our number one priority.
