What makes us different?

Basketball Mentors is not just the premier training institution in Melbourne, packed full of results, training systems, and expertise, but the most enjoyable! Our coaches are basketball players, who after years and years of being coached themselves have decided to bring their enthusiasm passion and expertise into teaching others. They way they wished they were taught!

Too many coaches these days do not know, or are unable to relate to and motivate the younger generation in an efficient, nurturing way. Because of this, many young athletes lack the confidence to enjoy and exceed in this amazing sport, or become "afraid". Afraid to make mistakes, afraid to try new things, afraid to stand out!


At Basketball Mentors we coach to the opposite. We coach, to improve enjoyment, we coach to remove any self-doubt related to confidence and we coach because we love too.
