Basketball Tips from Coach Green
Joel Green was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and was an All-City basketball player for all four years of high school. After graduating from high school, he attended the well known Hargrave Military Academy for prep school to exercise more college options. While there, he helped lead Hargrave to a #1 national ranking by USA Today and became top 30 players in the country.
Upon leaving Hargrave he began his collegiate career at Siena College where he was the top recruit. After an injury sidelined him, he was forced to sit out and red shirt his freshman year. To seek better opportunity, Joel transferred from Siena into the JUCO rankings to avoid sitting out yet another year by going to another 4 year school, which is NCAA regulation for transfers. While spending time in Junior College, Joel was able to win back-to-back National Titles making his way back to Division 1 basketball by signing with Rider University. After winning a Regular Season Title his senior season with the Broncs, he graduated with honors earning his BA in psychology. Joel began his professional career by playing in Ireland’s Superleague, which was followed by playing in both Spain and Venezuela while receiving a D-League contact along the way. A recent highlight for Joel was when he was invited to spend a few weeks with the 76ers during their preseason training.
Joel Green’s goal is to help enhance the performance of basketball players both physically as well as mentally. He provides players with the skills and mental approaches they need to get a leg up on the competition. Each Pro Level Training session is uniquely designed to incorporate the highest level of training methods done by some of today’s top professional athletes.

He saw that there was a need for athletes to learn how to properly prepare their minds and bodies for the game of basketball.

My boys said this was the most fun camp they've been to
January 18, 2017: The boys loved every minute of it! They were excited to get there each day and asked to go back in the summer before this camp was even over for the week! Every staff member and the Camp Director were excellent. They cared for the kids while being firm but fun.

The staff vs campers game was memorable.
July 18, 2016: The staff versus campers game was a memorable event for the campers. They had a great time during this event.

Singing "Jinging Bell Rock" was a memorable moment.
July 29, 2016: I really love the way the coaches at the camp always pushed us to get better. One of the most memorable moments was when our group broke into "Jingle Bell Rock" at break time. Sometimes a couple other girls and I would join in the bigger girl games, and they gave us really good advice. My favorite part was when the girls were split into groups with a coach. One of the girls on each team made a layup, one made a foul shot, and the coach with them made a half court shot. We were all part of a great competition! For next summer, I think the camp would get even better if we had maybe another competition we could do. Everything else was great.

This camp helped my daughter through a tough time.

My daughter learned how to work in a team.
August 21, 2016: The staff was awesome with the kids! Overall, a great experience. My daughter learned how to work in a team and learned that you can only reach your goal by pushing yourself and working hard. It didn't like, however, that the bathrooms were right near the exits.
— Jesse H. Parent
