The Grind – August 2018

Ganon Baker Basketball continues to inspire growth in the game of basketball worldwide.  Not only with players from grassroots to pros, but with Coaches and Skills Trainers.

Here are some examples of how we have been taking the world by storm.  We hope it inspires your to grow as well:

Nation Members are making an impact Worldwide.

Ganon Baker Basketball Nation of Coaches members – David Newton (@dragonarmy) and Mihai Raducanu (@mihairaducanuofficial) – conducted a basketball camp for 90 players in Kaunas, Lithuania. The camp was split into four groups – Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Pro levels. David and Mihai used the brand NEW Ganon Baker Basketball curriculum in order to design the appropriate workouts for each level. The players worked out twice per day. The ability to have the curriculum at their fingertips in order to design the coaching plans for large groups of 20 plus players at EVERY level was priceless according to David and Mihai. The response from organizers (@ubetalent) and all attending players from various European countries was very positive and the camp was considered one of the best camps in Europe. Have a look the video and know that you as well can have access to these videos by clicking the link on the bio.

“I've been coaching high school basketball and running my Dragon Army AAU program full-time for 4 years in New Jersey. After finding a lot of success here, I wanted to expand my horizons and do some coaching abroad. Ganon and Mihai hooked me up with a great opportunity in Lithuania. Mihai and I worked with about 90 players during the week, and it could not have been a better experience for me.  I learned a lot about the differences between American and European style of play and style of training. Mihai ran a phenomenal camp, and the European players definitely took advantage! They were a hard-working and focused group and made the week easy for us coaches. It was a privilege to train up-and-coming youth players and established professionals... I'll definitely be going back next summer!”

Nation member, Tom Parker of Push Thru Athletics ( @pushtruathletics) in Cleveland, Ohio, was afforded an opportunity through our Nation program to run the Skill Development portion of for the Overseas Combine hosted by Global 1 Sports Agency in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The Overseas Combine assembles players looking for an opportunity to play internationally. This put Coach Parker in front of Owners, General Managers and Coaches from various clubs and leagues overseas as well as NBA G League and other minor leagues from USA and Canada. The reason Coach Parker was able to get this role is because he volunteered his time to help Ganon with the NBA Pre Draft in Florida this past year. The owners of Global 1 Sport requested Ganon Baker to provide a skill trainer for their even and Coach Parker was their choice.
