One UP Basketball is fundamental foundation building training, not only for basketball but for athletes ready to push themselves to the next level. Athletes will be trained and mentored first hand by former Xavier University and NBA point guard, Michael Hawkins. Coach Mike’s dedication and hard work to persevere made him the athlete he became. He wants to instill and teach that same level of dedication to the youth athletes of today.
Our mission is to provide today's athletes with the lost art of fundamental basketball. A lot of players today rely so much on their God given talents and NOT enough on their skills. Here at One Up Level Basketball I want to build on the player's skills and ability to be mentally and physically tough each and every session we have together. My vision is to teach or refine your athlete the necessities of what it takes to be competitive at each level in this game, which is having a good attitude, a tremendous work ethic, dedication, and the basic fundamental skills.
