Karter joined the Next Level Basketball Academy (NLBA) family a few years ago after struggling with his ball handling, scoring and most importantly, his confidence. Even though he historically was a good shooter, he was not able to find ways to put himself into a position to score. His love for the game was starting to dwindle and his confidence was at an all-time low.
Coach Jared and Coach Brandon worked with Karter in the coming months to rebuild his confidence and take his game to The Next Level. Karter has progressed from a player who struggled to dribble under pressure, to a player who can push the ball up the court. He has learned to make the right basketball decision: pass, shoot, drive or pull the ball back out. His shooting and ability to score are far beyond where they were just two short years ago and most importantly, his confidence is at an all time high and his love for the game has been reinvigorated.
“Jared and Brandon have helped me be more confident with my ball handling skills and shooting. This has allowed me to expand my game.” – Karter
What sets NLBA apart from other training programs, are the lessons taught on and off the court: Respect, Leadership, Listening, Confidence and Teamwork. Karter’s growth has far exceeded his basketball skills, providing him life lessons that will carry him forward in years to come.
A tremendous thanks to Jared and Brandon for all they have done to bring the love of the game back into the heart of a young baller! We look forward to seeing his continual growth in the coming years.
