Training young athletes has become something that a lot of trainers and former athletes have become involved in. Turning over our children to qualified coaches and trainers is a difficult decision, but when I think of basketball I think of Jason Kent. Jason Kent who is from Columbus, Ohio, is the Director at Next Level 24 Basketball, where he train athletes to be the best. Jason is a person that I have known personally for more then 20 years. He has coached and or trained young basketball players for the past 17 years. He has coaching experience on every level from Division I to NAIA, and he has helped develop some great young talent.
That is why I am so excited about his Next Level 24. Next Level 24 is a basketball training service out of Tinley Park, Illinois that specializes in coaching the game of basketball from a coaches perspective.
