About The Program

John Hegwood

John Hegwood Elite Basketball Training is an individual training program designed to improve your skills. The extra time you spend training can help you make the team, propel you ahead of others, or set you apart as a top notch player.

Athleticism can make you a competitive player, but being fundamentally sound will increase your versatility and value. It is important to evaluate your skill level and set the goal you want to achieve as a player. Each individual has different goals and needs so these training sessions are designed to improve your basketball ability and take your game to the next skill level.

Training sessions focus on identifying weaknesses, developing strategies and drills, and developing proper training habits. Individual workouts will improve strengths and minimize weaknesses. Sessions are intense and you will be pushed hard to accomplish your goals, improve your skill level, and develop confidence and consistency in your ability.

Program Features

Elite Training



Private instruction focuses specifically on the individual need as a player. Naturally, each player is different in their needs and goals as an athlete. Experience, age, skill levels and mental approaches all vary from person to person.


Training with a partner effectively improves the players skills level and decision making when players of the same skill set compete and work out against each other.

Small Group

Semi-private training is an effective way to enhance your basketball skills in a similar fashion to individual training but with added variables of competing against other players, learning through observation.


John Hegwood Elite Training specializes in team basketball training and skill development for players of all ages and skill levels, with a focus on team development and execution from a technical and strategic perspective.

Concentration and mental toughness are the margins of victory.
Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.
What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player.
You either win the championship game or lose the championship; the team will decide which one they want.
