Playmaker Institute

We provide training for male and female Student-Athletes between the ages of 11 and 18 that are looking to improve their fundamental skills in the game of basketball.  We crystallize the commitment, positive attitudes, work ethics and personal confidence of Student-Athletes regardless of natural ability.  Whether they are new to the game, want to tweak a few things, or are looking to improve all around, we can help.  What's more impressive is that certain programs can be done with minimal supervision and without a trainer after being initially taught.  

In addition to motivational 1 on 1 and group trainings for student-athletes, we are proud of our specialized basketball camps and innovative incentive based leagues. We also provide the parent looking to capture memories or the attention of a college recruiter with video recording services.

We proudly call ourselves a one stop shop in regards to basketball training with a common theme: Results.
