Teer Basketball Training is operated and owned by Coach Ben Teer, former Division 1 player at IONA College and Division 2 scholarship player at Alaska Fairbanks University. After injured he finished out his career at the University of Maine at Machias where he led the Clippers to 2 Back to Back National Playoff Appearances and their First Conference Championship in over 20 years being named the Conference MVP, All-Conference, and All American Player.
His HS accolades in basketball range from Top 15 rankings in the state of Maine to NERR Top 100 Player. The first and only player in Washington Academy history to score 1,000 points and win in 2010 a Class C Basketball State Championship.
Since starting training in 2015, he has worked with over 20 Miss Maine & Mr Maine nominees, over 100+ college players and 200+ all-conference HS players and has grown Teer Basketball Training in Maine’s largest training brand.
I believe 110% that championships are won by TEAM play, but you do have to have capable athletes that are willing to go the extra mile and do what needs to be done to get themselves to that championship floor.
I have several girls on my team that have put in many many hours of practice. They not only put in their time with the team, they put months and some even years working with Teer Basketball Training to be the best players they can be. With Coach Ben’s help, I saw great improvement in their ball-handling skills and their overall comfort and confidence when holding a basketball.
I am extremely proud of them for taking their game to another level and wanting to put in their best effort for the team. I encourage any athlete, at any age, who may be looking to improve their individual game, to contact Coach Ben at Teer Basketball Training. I believe those that are willing to push and challenge themselves to get better, are in turn making their team better. This requires athletes putting time and effort into their game outside of the regular basketball season.
I soon realized I needed to see and learn more. With each workout, I noticed how determined he was to improve my individual skills and my overall awareness of the game. I remember doing drills and combining moves that I never thought were possible to do in a game.
There are a lot of aspects to the game most people don’t think about that are essential to developing basketball skills that he incorporates in every session. It’s all about getting out of your comfort zone and developing that hand-eye coordination because this is how you get better.
Coach also has the perfect balance between constructive criticism and hyping you up. If you are doing a skill wrong, he will tell you and help you fix it. Once you get it, he will hype you up like crazy! He finds a way to build your confidence while still being tough. Above everything, he genuinely cares about you as a person. He makes the effort to travel to you, watch your games, and will always support you on and off the court.
I was lucky enough to start working out with Coach Teer this summer and I honestly believe if he had not been my trainer I would not be as far on the path to being the best player I can be. Coach was able to help me hone my skills, as well as teach and add new skills and moves to my repertoire. Coach Teer was able to improve my game on the court, as well as my mental game.
I have struggled with my confidence and love for the game during my college career, and was not sure if I still had the killer instinct to play and compete, but even from the first workout Coach Teer saw it within me and helped me find it within myself again. Even in the short amount of time I’ve known Coach Teer, he has helped me in both those areas. He always has the wisest and most relevant advice and will have your back no matter what the circumstance. Not only has he helped me gain my confidence back, but he has helped me and is still helping me find my swagger on the court again.
Coach Teer is one of the most motivated and passionate individuals and trainers I have ever met and worked with, he fully commits to his players and will do anything in his power to help his players succeed. He designs every workout we do specifically to me and my game and spends the time to critique and perfect my game. Coach Teer makes sure every specific footstep, shot, dribble and move is perfect so that when it comes game time all of these skills we have worked on and perfected will come naturally and put me above the rest. This is my testimonial to Coach Ben Teer, thank you for all your time, effort and passion you show me and all of your players.
It’s so unique and customized, which means a lot when you realize that, he didn’t have the same playing style as you. But he has the knowledge and the capability in order to adapt to a player's playing style, and most importantly help you PROGRESS as that unique player.
Because that’s the most important thing to him, it’s not the amount of sessions you train with him, it’s the knowledge of the game he teaches you, in those training sessions. And with that knowledge, the student starts PROGRESSING every day.
One thing I’ve learned with Ben is that the PLAYER is responsible for the accolades, that is solely on the player. But one thing that is one hundred percent guaranteed from Ben is progress. Every session you will progress, even if it’s the tiniest progression you are guaranteed to be heading in the right direction. The REPS come from the PLAYER the KNOWLEDGE comes from the TRAINER.
