A Before & After Video

And a Few Stories of Progression

  1. I don't even know where to start to describe how wonderful my son's trainer is or how much of a difference he has made to my son's basketball skills. My son had never learned proper ball-handling skills and had had little experience. My son's trainer changed all that - in just 9 lessons!

  2. My son's trainer has been wonderful! He is very knowledgeable and above all--patient. I have been amazed at his ability to relay the mechanics of shooting, ball handling, and footwork in a methodical and systematic way. It is truly remarkable to watch my son's progress from week to week.

  3. My son's trainer has helped Grant improve his skills at every lesson. He continues to be 100% professional and also very engaging and encouraging with Grant. It has been a pleasure working with him!

  4. 4 out of 5 stars! These trainers will bring out the best in your athlete. They always have a positive word for their students.

  5. Our first session with Illusion Institute was fantastic - we're excited to work with them more. The ball handling drills were challenging and unique, and my son already sees some improvement, and has new drills to practice with.

  7. My son loved it, very flexible with times and very knowledgeable!!! I would recommend and will use them again.

  8. The way the mentality of my son was changed... incredible. He went from being hesitant to shoot to having the confidence to let it fly! Not air balls and shots off the side of the backboard either, he was knocking down shots left and right. Let these guys get a hold of your kid, and they won't be the same.

  9. When my daughter first started training, she was the girl that would get the ball and pass it off like the ball was on fire. Very hesitant to get involved on offense. Now she's very confidence, and has literally been the team's leading scorer this season so far. We are so thankful for Illusion Institute!

  10. We've been with Illusion Institute a long time. I don't know where to start. My daughter has become a new person. Her confidence is through the roof and her skills wow everyone that sees her play. Three pointers, lay-ups in traffic, pretty crossovers, the whole nine, and it's thanks to Illusion Institute!

  11. Our trainer has been giving my grandson weekly basketball training sessions for approximately 2 months. During that time, Alex has progressed tremendously! The approach his trainer uses to master the basics has helped him advance much more than he had in the last 5-6 years he has played with different teams. His trainer's patience and encouragement has helped not only his skill level but also his self esteem in terms of his abilities. Alex has even said he has never learned so much so fast! Kudos to Illusion Institute!

  12. Before coming across Illusion Institute I took on the role of helping my son work on his basketball skills. My son and I did tons of practice, and over time, I felt my son wasn't performing at his best and it began to put a strain on our relationship. My wife convinced me to make a change. Since starting with Illusion Institute, I’ve recognized that my son responds better to his trainer’s training. My son is now a much better shooter and is more confident on the basketball court. The ball handling workouts have helped him improve his dribbling ability with his left hand. He is still a work in progress but I can see the improvement and more importantly he sees himself improving. I am really grateful we were referred to Illusion Institute.
