Private Basketball Lessons and
Small Group Training
The basketball lessons will help players improve...
- and all around basketball ability
We also offer small group trainings (2-9 players) for $110 per session. Each player can split the fee so the cost can be as little as $13 per player. We really get a lot done in small groups. And the workout is still customized to the needs of those players. You assemble the group (it can be brothers, sisters, team-mates, and so on) and then I do the training. Age and skill level in small groups does not have to be equal (a 10 year old can work in the same group as a 18 year old). To book small group training, please sign up here.

About the Lead Trainer - Jeff Haefner
Jeff Haefner is a basketball trainer and coach in the Cedar Rapids / Marion area. He is also the co-founder of BreakthroughBasketball.com, which is currently the most visited basketball coaching website in the world (with over 4000 unique visitors each day).
Jeff has written and developed hundreds of articles, books, videos, and instructional resources about coaching basketball. Over 60,000 coaches around the world subscribe to and read the Breakthrough Basketball Newsletter that Jeff and his brother Joe publish.
Jeff has also been fortunate to learn from some of the best basketball trainers in the world over the last several years...Jeff's job over the last 5 years has been to study the game of basketball and develop content for Breakthrough Basketball. He has viewed and studied thousands of articles, books, DVDs, and resources about player development.
He has also been very lucky to become friends with and get mentoring from some top college and PRO coaches in the country...
One of the biggest influences on Jeff's training program has been professional player development coach Don Kelbick. Many of Jeff's teaching methods come from Don Kelbick, a pro coach that works with NBA players like Raja Bell, Carlos Boozer, Guillermo Diaz, Rasual Butler, Carlos Arroyo, Tim Hardaway, Bruce Bowen, and others. Don also works with younger players and gives training camps all over the world. Jeff has been fortunate enough to become good friends with Don and learn his training techniques. Don has probably been the most influential person on Jeff's training program.
In addition, Jeff has learned from dozens of player development coaches around the country. BreakthroughBasketball.com has allowed him to meet and become friends with player development coaches from all over.
Because of Jeff's unique experience he is able to offer a very distinctive training program that is very precise, efficient, and effective.
But what Jeff enjoys the most is teaching young players the fundamentals of basketball, how to gain confidence, and how to be successful in life. That is his passion! To him, practice is more fun than the games because that's where he gets the opportunity to teach and have a positive impact on young player's lives.
Jeff graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with his Coaching Certificate and a Degree in Computer Science. Jeff grew up in Iowa and currently lives there today with his wife and two kids. In his spare time Jeff enjoys boating, water skiing, wakeboarding, traveling to sunny places, working out, and playing with his kids as much he can!
