Joel Green, former professional player, founded Pro Level Training after realizing his undeniable passion for teaching and coaching. His goal is to help enhance player performance both physically and mentally by providing them uniquely designed skills and mental approaches they need to get a leg up on the competition.
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.
Over the years Joel has been featured in multiple commercials, print ads and also on a national TV show. Joel is the 2017 face of Cheez-It Crackers' latest national basketball campaign. This feature was a dream come true and gave him the opportunity to play in the Celebrity Crunch Classic, coached by Magic Johnson, playing against Charles Barkley's team of celebrities. In addition to all of this, Joel also travels to speak to many organizations, schools, and programs to help motivate & inspire others to maximize on their talents, skills and untapped potential.
