The IMPACT Story
BEFORE IMPACT - When Joe was on Coach Bob Knight's Indiana staff, he learned first-hand the value of skill development. The Hoosiers played an entire season without a called, set plays and they won more games over a four-year span than any other team in Big Ten history, including a trip to the 1992 Final Four. The secret was a commitment by each player and the staff to developing skills through the fundamentals and being in elite shape, focusing on strength and speed.
TURNING POINT - In the summer of 1997 Joe almost moved into college coaching circuit. Unexpectedly, he had the chance to train Chauncey Billups and Kevin Garnett, two future Hall of Famers. Based on Joe's unique training style, Chauncey and Kevin showed significant improvements in a short period of time. From there, Joe was inspired to launch his unique style of coaching and training and give up the X's and O's.
As A Sidenote: In the early days, Joe's unique kind of basketball training was unknown as a profession. Joe was employed by multiple NBA teams, including both the Indiana Pacers and Toronto Raptors during the same season. Today, an NBA team is likely to have 3-6 development coaches and Trainers on their staff, even sending them to live in the same city as their players during the off-season. Joe was and still is the pioneer of this science known as basketball player development.
TODAY - Joe and his Impact team often train over half the NBA Lottery picks immediately after the NCAA season concludes each year. Many current NBA stars spend their off-seasons training at Impact's Las Vegas super facility every summer. Many of these stars rely on Joe and Impact throughout their entire season to keep them sharp and playing at an elite level.
Joe and his crew also train thousands of young basketball players at the Impact's year-round Academy in Sarasota, Florida as well as Summer Camps in their three world-class facilities. They host clinics for the AAU Basketball organization as well as supports many other leading basketball companies and groups. Every year, dozens of foreign professional and national teams come to Impact to learn and prepare for some of the biggest basketball events around the world.
Simply put... every day hundreds of dedicated basketball players improve their skills and capabilities with live training through Impact. They are taking in the same education you are now able to view online to improve your program.
