At the Envision Basketball Academy, young Aussie players are trained by Kareem Drayton, a skills enhancement trainer from New York.
Kareem single-handedly built a curriculum around the advanced teaching and instruction given to NBA stars and college players in USA.
Straight from Brooklyn, Kareem now calls Melbourne home after his immediate success with building the Envision Basketball Academy.
His greatest inspiration comes from helping players build a powerful mindset using the ‘envision formula’ for both on and off the court.
He founded the Envision Basketball Academy to help players visualise a future of endless possibilities.
In just five months, Kareem’s academy has become well known in Melbourne for its innovative programs designed to push players to their limits.
As a certified ‘I’m Possible’ trainer, Kareem is changing the world of basketball through his unbiased approach to the game.
“Being a certified trainer means that at Envision Basketball, we deliver unique and proprietary training methods and training tools used around the globe,” Kareem said.
“Our goals for training are not to teach players one skill; but many skill sets required to transform them into the complete player.”
Each session at the Envision Basketball Academy is broken down in a form that every player can handle, regardless of age, gender or skill level.
“I want to transform Australian Basketball. With so much raw talent here in Melbourne, particularly in the south east, I want to make a big and positive difference in these players’ lives,” Kareem said.
“Many of our students dream about getting college scholarships to play College Ball, and see themselves playing in the NBL/WNBL and even overseas in Europe, USA, China.
“I want to empower them, help build their skill set and basketball IQ, so that they go live their dream.”
From beginners through to elite players, Kareem teaches a variety of skills from shooting, to defence, to ball handling.
He is a positive role model rising stars can depend on to take their game to the next level.
Kareem delivers classes and private training between eight locations within the south eastern suburbs, training over 100 students a week.
