Enhanced Shooting Techniques 

with Joel Whymer

810-300-3709 or

(Wayne State University Assistant Women's Basketball Coach)

My individual training philosophy is focused on improving shooting the basketball. Every player that trains with me will get a full evaluation on their shot and a plan for improvement. There is an extra emphasis on footwork and building a strong foundation for shooting consistency. My goal for each student I work with is to have them master the basics and build their shot into a natural movement that requires little thinking when they play in a game situation.

Individual training would be $25 per hour and group training (groups of 3) would be $15 per student. Please call Joel for more info or to register for a shooting session.
