5 summers ago I started training with Avneet and it has been a journey. I started as a kid who couldn’t shoot a pull-up or make a free throw after a hit to those two being my number one weapons. Avneet has helped me a tremendous amount in my overall game. His skill workouts are always detail orientated and he pushes you to be better everyday. Every workout involved either specifically training on one skill (generally a weakness) or getting constant reps up incorporated with conditioning. The one thing that I always appreciated was any time or any day he was always available to train. Every workout was always different and very game like, which I believe is very important to be successful. Avneet is very dedicated to this sport and is somewhat of a basketball nerd. I believe that he has helped me take my game to the next level and will only continue to help me as I start my journey as a pro.

With all the different drills and unique training I did with Avneet as a coach, my game has improved tremendously. Skill is something some players lack and compensate with athleticism. Working with Avneet, focusing on those small fundamentals has helped me throughout my season. Being a first year point guard in the CIS was a challenge but knowing that I had put in all the work with him, I was comfortable bringing the ball up against fifth year guards. The feeling of being able to use my skills in games versus older players was personally rewarding. For university players it’s not just about doing basic ball handling, We have to be pushed to do things that are extremely challenging to get better and that is what I benefited most from training with Avneet. We spent time each day talking about mindset, worked on athleticism and incorporated conditioning into almost every drill.
