WHY EVOLVE BASKETBALL
Today, the basketball system, especially at the youth level, is seriously flawed! Many coaches and parents judge a successful season based on wins and losses rather than helping players improve while teaching them to have fun playing the game. Without proper skill development and the pure enjoyment of playing basketball, players will struggle with having success at higher levels because they lack the skill set and true understanding of the way the game is to be played.
Evolve Basketball sets the highest standards of excellence and quality when it comes to teaching the fundamentals of the game and enhancing individual skills. Our exclusive program uses specific training methods, techniques and concepts that we currently utilize with our current professional athletes. Our training focuses on skill sets that will help young players excel on the court by raising their self-confidence,mental toughness and overall basketball I.Q. Basketball is more than simply a game. It’s also learning how to compete at the highest level. Our mission at “Evolve” is to Push Athletes Beyond Expectations and Help Them Reach Their Unlimited Potential by providing the highest level of basketball instruction in the world!
Iren Rainey’s Training Resume
Iren Rainey is a renowned basketball skills development trainer who works with players at all levels. As founder of Evolve Basketball, Iren currently serves as the Head Skills and Development Instructor to various players in the NBA, WNBA, as well as other professional international leagues throughout the world. In addition he also trains players at both the intercollegiate and interscholastic levels as well as elementary kids.
Iren, now 29, spent 8 of his adolescent years living in England where his mother was an educator. During this time, he excelled at both tennis and the game of basketball. At the young age of 13, he competed against many (FIBA) professional men’s basketball teams around various countries in Europe. After receiving, “All Europe” honors at the tender age of 16, he made the tough choice to leave his mother overseas because of being recruited to national basketball powerhouse, “Oak Hill Academy”, where he played under legendary coach, Steve Smith. This proved to be a great situation after the team received a number 1 ranking nationally by ESPN and ended up winning the National Championship after having a 33-0 record.
Iren continued to excel as a student athlete and even throughout his last year of college. However, he unfortunately ended up getting involved with an unlikely group of people which resulted in a detrimental period of adversity, after making some significant undesirable choices. At that point, his life changed tremendously and he was faced with yet another opportunity to make a choice. He decided to use that period as a time of introspecting, while making the conscious decision to take on a major paradigm shift. It was only after overcoming his fears and limiting belief systems about himself and the rest of the world was he given a second chance at life.
After playing basketball professionally in the IBL (International Basketball League) and simultaneously developing great relationships with numerous players in the NBA, Iren realized his calling in life was bigger than just simply playing the game of basketball. His mission for Evolve is “Pushing Athletes Beyond the Expecttations and Reaching Their Unlimited Potential”.
