SCORE MORE THIS WINTER.

The Throne offers the best youth basketball training in Chicagoland. We don't do strength and conditioning like the other guys. We develop the skills you need to play more, score more, win more.

START NOW

BASKETBALL IS WHAT WE DO

Our goal is to help young athletes achieve their full basketball potential by instructing and motivating them in a constructive and positive way. We believe that basketball should be fun. When the kids are having fun and working hard, their growth is amazing.

PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION

We get to know each athlete and what they need to reach the next level.

FUNDAMENTAL DEVELOPMENT

Our training is practical. Every drill we run develops skills that can be used on gameday.

EMPOWERED ATHLETES

Our athletes build self-confidence by working hard and then seeing the results of their work on the court.

In the fall of 2018 The Throne partnered with ALL IN Athletics, the largest travel basketball program in Illinois and one of the largest in the nation. ALL IN is sponsored by adidas® and is 1 of only 15 Jr. NBA Flagship Network programs in the country. The partnership will offer the players the best possible opportunity to maximize their basketball talents. They will continue to get training from The Throne and will have a team to play on in the off seasons throughout the end of high school. Combining The Throne training and the ALL IN game structure/schedule and platform, is a win-win for all. My mission is to help these young players to be the best version of themselves possible— whether it be at basketball or at life.
