AT GREG WHITE BASKETBALL WE FOCUS ON:
PEAK PERFORMANCE TRAINING
I offer individual and group sessions: I train individuals (boys and girls) who are interested in becoming skilled basketball players. Every individual’s improvement starts with self-image, realistic goal-setting, work ethic, proper technique, and repetition of skills. The mental is to the physical as 4 is to 1. You must know what to do and how to practice to improve your skills. You must gain overall knowledge of the game, have clarity of what your goals are, and have the required personal commitment to accomplish your goals. I TEACH FUN-DAMENTALS, FUN-DAMENTALS AND MORE FUN-DAMENTALS!

I assist high school student-athletes (boys and girls) on how to chase their dream of playing college basketball. I teach players and families what to do, when to do it and how to do it. Now, the transfer portal is a REAL GAME CHANGER, both positively and negatively. There are 2,000+ colleges and universities out there providing plenty of opportunities for motivated student-athletes.

So, you want to play college basketball?
The opportunity exists with student-athletes (boys and girls) who are truly motivated to do so. There are slightly more than 2,000 colleges that have basketball programs at five different levels. They are Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA, and Junior College. They all recruit basketball players in an attempt to field a strong team to compete and win their respective championships.
There are currently 500,000 boys and 500,000 girls playing high school basketball currently in the United States, but only 5% (25,000 boys and 25,000 girls) play basketball at various colleges and universities.
Many dynamics go into landing on a college team. Many players go on to play college basketball and flourish while many do not. For every one player who has that amazing experience, there is also one that has a frustrating experience that forces them to transfer. Transferring schools is a risky business because there is no guarantee that the school you transfer to is right for you either. Now, the transfer portal is a REAL GAME CHANGER, both positively and negatively.
I strongly believe that 95% of the frustration could be avoided if the PLAYERS and PARENTS had the knowledge to make proper decisions. That is where my "RECRUITING SUCCESS EXPANDER" comes into play. This program covers the essentials that can make or break your decision. With over 300 Insider Tips, It will assist the student-athlete and parents with appropriate knowledge to make an informed and educated decision. Many parents want to help but do not know how. HERE IS YOUR STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE.
