Teer Basketball Training Camps are some of the best and most effective basketball skills events run in the entire state of Maine. We focus on creating LASTING changes with your abilities and habits. We build up a fundamental foundation with proper habits and positive thinking and confidence while noticing, breaking, and getting rid of negative/bad habits or ways of thinking. No player leaves our camps with anything less of a change in mindset, and a change in abilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
5th-8th Grade Camp: will be jam-packed with concepts. Coach Ben has put together the perfect camp to help the beginner and advanced players. Coach Ben is starting to become well-known for his Solo Drills. These are drills that can be done by yourself even around a group of people. The concept is you feel like you’re in the gym all by yourself. Locked in and focused on each drill and concept. We will focus on concepts seen at the Jr High Level and what it takes to be a stand out player. Competitive gameplay will be offered to incorporate what is learned and taught. Also, our Game-Day Breakdown Sessions will be offered. Players will be able to watch some of their favorite players do some of the skills and concepts taught by Coach Ben.
High School Camps: These will be intense and challenging. My idea is to bring new concepts and techniques never seen before. We will work on a variety of in-game situations, counter moves, high-low’s, change of speeds, read and reaction sequences, and much more. I want to not only give the high school athletes the drills they need to excel at the high school level but push them to a new limit and out of their comfort zone. Competitive gameplay will be offered and our Game Day Break down Sessions will be shown. I really want athletes to understand these camps will get them better and offer fundamentals, techniques, and concepts that they never will see anywhere else and will have above most of their competition.
When checking out or paying for the camps online, please, if you can, fill out and email/send in the forms 30 days before camp!!!. If by any chance you can’t please bring these in on camp day. PLEASE NOTE: Unless filled out and brought in, your child/you will not be able to participate. Also, you will receive an email later with a camp itinerary!
A camp shop will be offered with clothing, socks, online programs, training merchandise, and online training packets. Also if by any chance we sell out of gear computers will be present to order directly from our online shop!
I try to make this clear every year. This is not a baby sitting camp. This is not a camp to strictly have fun at.
This is a time to get better and improve. I take my time seriously and my passion is to help athletes who love the game and want to become better. Most of my drills are designed to push you out of your comfort zone. This helps with tons of things like self-confidence, determination, and pushes you out of this “quitting when gets tough” mentality most athletes have developed.
When athletes come in for fun/not serious and not to improve they very much become frustrated and bored with what’s going on, so I urge you older athletes to come in with the right attitude!
What people are saying
I am the Girls Varsity Basketball Head Coach at Narraguagus High School. This year we had an amazing season. We ended with a record of 19-2 and were able to win our first Maine Class C State Championship in school history.
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.
Kolleen Bouchard (Univ of Bentley, Former standout for Houlton High School, 2000 point scorer, and Miss Maine Basketball)
I thought the session pushed me in a way that I have not been pushed before. The session definitely showed me what I needed to work on. I enjoyed doing new drills that I have never done before and, at the same time, I felt like I got a good workout in. I particularly remember doing a few difficult ball handling drills that really pushed me to focus and work hard to do them correctly. I messed up a lot in these drills but always had positive reinforcement from Coach Teer. In these sessions, I liked how we focused on the little things such as footwork in certain moves for a long period of time, instead of just working on things that I could already successfully do.
Maddy McVicar (Guard at Univ Maine at Orono, and Calais High School Hall of Fame, and 1000 Point Scorer)
Ben is an elite level trainer who truly cares about the people he works with and the sport he preaches. He dedicates his time to constantly learning basketball and each of the players he works with. Personally, he took the time to view film from my collegiate team and base the moves we worked on around situations I’d be placed in within our offense. He gives skill-specific and player-specific training, which immediately translates to on-court results.
Cash McClure (Maranacook High School and #3 ranked in Class of 2022 in Maine)
I think working with Ben has been one of the best things I could have possibly done for myself. Not only did he teach me a bunch of dribble moves, drills, techniques, and ways to get off my shot, but he also taught me how to think the game and outsmart a defender. In my opinion, that’s one of the best things a trainer can do.
Every session would be personalized to me to make sure I worked on my weaknesses, and it wasn’t just him giving me a few tips on what to fix, he’d focus on specific details and show me exactly what he meant which was really helpful. He’d make sure to get the best out of you every session, always pushing you out of your comfort zone and making you the best possible player you could be. One of the coolest things that he does though is staying connected with each player he trains. He is able to develop a relationship with each player which many trainers don’t do. He is always checking in on them, going to their games, or posting about them on social media. I remember waiting to see my name on one of Coach Bens posts after a session or after a good game, and it would be such a good feeling. Thank you, Coach, for everything you’ve done for me.
Wyatt Hathaway (#6 ranked player in Class of 2022 in Maine and Leavitt High School 1000 point scorer)
I definitely liked how detailed everything was you could tell that you spent time thinking out what moves you were going to teach me and how you were going to teach me them. Just how you took our relationship to a personal level it wasn’t just you training me for money, you wanted to teach me ways I can elevate my game because you want to see all of your clients succeed and play at a high level. I really enjoyed how much energy you brought to the sessions. If we weren’t giving it our everything you called us out and got on us with positive energy and made us want to compete
