Cramer camps challenge players to think the game of basketball on a higher level. One of the keys to his training is teaching athletes how to perform above their athletic set through a stronger mental understanding of the game and game specific skill set. This was essential for Cramer to perform at a high level against pro athletes who were taller, bigger, stronger, faster than he was. They also give them the tools to understand and enjoy the process of improvement. Through this process, players gain the knowledge of what it takes to train on their own at a high and efficient level.
Cramer teaches players how to enhance all aspects of their game as well as athletic development and leadership characteristics. Combining Cramer’s demonstration skills and communication with his teaching, playing, training and coaching experience give him a blueprint for training athletes of all levels.
