“I can’t thank you enough for turning my son who loved basketball, but lacked the skills, into a confident and skilled lover of the game!”
“Since working with John, we have seen remarkable improvement in our daughter’s basketball ability and IQ. Basketball is obviously a team sport, but small group and one-on-one training sessions are ideal for skill development, instilling confidence and conceptual discussion. At the end of the day it’s about achieving one’s potential – I firmly believe John is helping our daughter do just that.”
“Coach Hedstrom expects you to work and perform at a high level all the time. He is great at giving funny analogies that make a lot of sense that you can remember. Coach has helped me grow as a basketball player in many ways for 3 years. I would highly recommend coach Hedstrom’s trainings.”
“Coach Hedstrom motivates me to always do my best on the court and to be an intelligent basketball player.”
“I learned a TON and now I’m a way better basketball player than I was before. The workouts are a challenge and I really like Coach Hedstrom's sense of humor.”
“Coach Hedstrom has been instrumental in the development of our children’s basketball skills….he approaches the game from all angles and challenges the athletes both physically and mentally during the workouts…we can’t thank him enough for his work and dedication to making basketball players the best they can be.”
“I like working with Coach Hedstrom because he shows you what you're doing wrong and teaches you the right way and will keep correcting you until you do it consistently right. He can communicate with the player so that the player understands because he has coached at multiple levels for a long time.”
“I like workouts with Coach Hedstrom because when something isn't right, he fixes it.”
“Coach Hedstrom is reliable, dependable and passionate about his coaching. His experience and enthusiasm in basketball allow him to excel above any other private coach out there. His workouts are driven, impactful and fun, which makes each one unique.”
“Coach Hedstrom is a talented, no-nonsense basketball skills instructor. His workouts are intense, and not for the players who are not serious about their game. My daughter has worked out with Coach Hedstrom over the last couple of years, and her skillset has grown tremendously under his instruction. We recommend Hedstrom Basketball to anyone interested in taking their game to the next level.”
“Coach Hedstrom has greatly improved my offense in the years I have worked with him. He has showed me many moves to the basket, dribbling moves and greatly improved my shot. Coach not only showed me the moves but told me when and how to use them. It is really nice to know I have a move for every situation against any opponent.”
