What Our Clients Say

"Over the past couple of years I’ve had the pleasure of meeting, getting to know and working with Coach Hodson 'The Shot Doctor'; as he has been a special guest at my Hoops & Standards Leadership Camps in Fort Wayne, Indiana! As a former college/NBA player, high school/college coach, and trainer I have been blown away by The Shot Doctor’s massive knowledge on the science and technique on shooting; along with the necessary and proper steps to maximize a player’s longevity, potential and health! 


I wish I had met him earlier in my career, as I may have had a healthier and longer career!  All serious ballers need the SHOT DOCTOR!!"

"Just through one workout with him he was able to help me with my balance and help me focus on getting the left side of my lower body to engage on my jump shot. He pointed some things out that I hadn’t been aware of about being balanced and symmetrical when it comes to shooting."

“Working with The Shot Doctor has been huge for me. It was great to see my shot broken down to a level of detail I had never seen before and has helped me in my approach to not only shot mechanics but all other aspects of the game...By making an adjustment to my base I’ve been able to develop a more balanced jump shot which has taken so much pressure off of my knee, relieving that pain. The results were immediate which made it clear that these were changes I needed to make permanently..."
