Be coached by a legendDuring his 10 plus years as a professional journeyman Randy played with several NBA teams including the Chicago Bulls, Houston Rockets and the Utah Jazz. During that time, Randy was coached by some of the legends of basketball including Jerry Sloan, Gregg Popovich, Rudy Tomjanovich, Nate McMillan and Larry Brown. After retiring from playing professional basketball, Randy transitioned to coaching, including four years in the NBA Development League, multiple adidas Nations tournaments, NBA Summer Leagues and being an on-court coach with USA Basketball in their preparation for the 2011 Pan-American Games.
Individual TrainingWhether you are an elite amateur, playing professionally or just someone who likes the dedicated attention personal training gives you, this is the option for you. Randy will undertake an evaluation before commencing Individual Training to understand and agree your objectives and set reachable goals. You will be periodically evaluated to ensure effective progress.
Small & Large Team TrainingSmall group training is aimed at groups of 3 to 6 players with a common objective, for example, preparation for try-outs or an upcoming tournament. Large Group and Team Training is ideal for groups of 7 – 20 or teams that want to take their game to the next level. Large Group Training tends to use station-based drills, plus focused team-building activities.
Residential Player Development
The LivOn Basketball residential Player Development Programs offer a unique experience where young upcoming players (typically 15 to 19 year olds) are immersed in an intensive basketball training environment for a two to five day period. These programs are ideal for players who are preparing for a major event, tour or tournament, or getting ready to go to College, or simply anyone wanting individual training that extends beyond court drills to look at all aspects of player development.
These programs comprise of a series of training sessions that can cover skills development, strength/conditioning and agility workouts, game video analysis and performance nutrition. The player “lives in” and participates in basketball activities several times per day. When time permits, we also include beach runs and sightseeing to complement the intensive basketball program.
Point Guard Skills Development
What separates the great point guards from the average ones? Current and future Hall of Fame point guards like John Stockton, Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash and Chris Paul all display distinctive qualities that make them outstanding. We will teach players in the point guard role the skills and techniques used by professional point guards to become formidable individual performers and outstanding contributors to their teams. Point guard skills development can be delivered either as a camp or in a one-on-one situation. Individual point guard skills development is highly suitable for professional and semi-professional players, however anyone wanting to advance their point guard skills or leadership on the court will benefit.
Randy brings his powerful personal story and outstanding knowledge of elite basketball to audiences around the world. Randy is also available as an event host and MC.
Topics Randy covers includes:
- His story of growing up in inner city New Orleans.
- His journey up the ranks of high school and college basketball.
- His setbacks through injury and the tough road back.
- Being drafted in the NBA and his career as a journeyman.
