“Super Skills” is a basketball philosophy for those who are seriously aspiring to become outstanding young players. The instruction provided will be at a finer, more detailed level, focusing on very specific skills, fundamentals, and techniques involved with playing basketball at a higher level.
My desire to coach and teach young people about the game of basketball began to take root during my own high school playing days at Youngstown Liberty, and then further blossomed after my experiences playing college basketball at Stanford University. In high school I played for my father, Bob Patton Sr., who has won over 300 games and is still widely considered one of the top coaches in Ohio. In college, I played for one of the finest teachers in the country in Mike Montgomery.
As a result of all that I have learned and applied over the years, I am confident that I have developed an outstanding basketball skills teaching format for young players. Throughout my extensive camp/teaching experiences, I have had the opportunity to develop many players who have gone on to very successful high school and college careers. And I’m always grateful for and excited about having the chance to work with young players eager to develop “super skills”!
