"My son has been going to private lessons with Ryan for the last few months. Not only is Ryan technically sound and a wonderful teacher, he is just a great person. He's very positive and encouraging. Our whole family had been very impressed with his approach to lessons, skill development and the improvements in our son. Even though he'd been playing for quite a while, the improvement was very noticeable. Thank you Ryan for helping to get him ready for high school tryouts!"

Academy Progression

It is our #1 goal to teach, train and improve the basketball skills of every player that gets involved in the Welty Basketball Academy.


We understand, through past experiences, that players respond well to encouragement when being trained. They also work harder when they see their work pay-off in visible improvements and measurable results. 


With those two things in mind, we will be a positive motivator when training your child. If they are willing to listen and work hard, we promise their time with us will be fun.

Ball Handling

Shooting the basketball is a foundational skill top flight players possess in todays game. Whether an athlete is in a shooting slump, seeking to improve his or her mechanics, trying to expand their range, or learning to take better/smarter shots, the academy will equip players to shoot and score better. At Welty Basketball we develop makers not shooters. 

The foundation of the Welty Basketball is built on fundamentals. All trainees will receive a steady dose of ball handling exercises that seek to improve overall handling skills, performance dribbling in traffic and through contact, as well handling skills that improve transition passing and scoring. All drills will be at game speed. 

Players in today's game need to be able to utilize different finishes in order to score the ball. With Welty Basketball, we start with teaching fundamental footwork and the foundational finishes. We continue to build off those finishes with each player by teaching more complex finishes and footwork in order to be able to finish at a high level in game situations. 

Being the best requires confidence and commitment. Our teaching techniques will give Welty Basketball athletes full confidence to compete at the highest level. We will push our athletes to be the best they can be with positivity and encouragement. We will push the athlete out of their comfort zone to help them reach their full potential.
