A pro-prep basketball development program that gives participants a “professional basketball contract” experience. This program focuses on the mental welfare and career advancement of aspiring athletes who are transitioning from high school to college and college to aspiring pro.
We use a unique cognitive approach to train the basketball mind and develop untapped potential. Players will learn to leverage their situational reasoning to strengthen their individual talents and broaden their skill set.
Our pro-athlete 101 workshops focus on personal & professional development as well as health & wellness. We want to ensure we provide invaluable knowledge and resources that will help equip and empower players for professional opportunities on and off the court.
Players participate in our team building activities including our Youth Club Experience and community events. Players learn the importance of positive role modeling and giving back to the youth while gaining invaluable hands on experience servicing community needs.
Great Gain Athletics is all about bringing substance back to the court beyond athleticism. Having a high basketball IQ, a strong skill set, a impeccable work ethic and a broad game perspective adds substance to any athlete’s game. It shows the player knows the game, knows his or her role, and knows how to win. These are the success characteristics that will position any athlete to succeed as a fundamentally sound player on and off the court.
Substance is what forms the foundation of my coaching philosophy. My approach is always centered around bringing substance back to the game… When I give you tough love, the mistake is the focus, not the player… Substance is what inspired me to develop a players first teaching system that will build confident, mindful players who know how to make the best decisions in complex situations.
-Coach Mike, GGA INC
(The program) teaches the business side of basketball. I have a greater understanding of what kind of approach I need as I transition to be a pro.
This is my first experience ever being a part of something like this. To even be a part of something like this is humbling.
My experience at Great Gain Athletic words cant describe! Coach Mike is running a well oiled machine and allows young men to get training, guidance, structure and tools to make them successful on the basketball court and life after the ball stops bouncing. The young men showed respect and class during my time. I know under Coach Mike’s guidance these young men will be successful in whatever they do in life.
It’s organic. It’s something real and it makes me feel more confident about my career. I want (Coach) Mike to be my Agent!!!
