Consulting, Camps and Individual Player’s Lessons

If you are interested in your players being thoroughly taught the fundamental skills of individual and team offense as well as individual and team defense, both on the half court as well as the full court level, Coach Kimble can be available for basketball camps.  He can come to your school for instructional camps for both girls or boys from the Middle School age to High School age.  Having a camp at your school can drastically save money for campers.

If you are interested in installing the Multiple Match-Up Zone, the Multiple 2-1-2 Full Court Zone Press, various Primary and Secondary Fastbreak packages, various Zone and/or Man-to-Man Offensive Sets and Continuity Offenses, Coach Kimble is also available to consult with coaching staffs as well as players.  He can come to your school for an instructional camp, saving money for campers as well as saving money for coaches to substitute for coaching clinics.


Coach Kimble ran a week-long camp for us in June. The whole team attended….JV and Varsity. The players and coaches got so much out of this camp that it is hard to believe that it was only 5 days. From the little techniques of ball handling, shooting, passing, etc, the players learned what it will take for them to be good players individually as well as better teammates. As coaches, we learned many drills that we will use this summer and into the seasons ahead. Coach Kimble was very well liked by the players and the coaches and I know we will use him again in the future!

I had the pleasure of working with Coach Kimble at our basketball camps this June. Even though I have been coaching at various levels for 33 years, I was inspired by Coach’s enthusiasm for and dedication to the game. He was more than willing to share his knowledge and to talk basketball long after the camp was over for the day. I have worked numerous camps during my career, but I can say this was the first camp I worked where a camper didn’t ask when we were going to play. It’s a testimony to Coach’s ability to relate to our youth and teach the game he loves at the same time.

As a former player, current coach and parent, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the camp that Coach Kimble did for my girls. The time he spent instructing the players and preparing them for the upcoming season was invaluable. You can see the passion that Coach Kimble has for the game in the way he prepares, teaches, and encourages during his camps. Our girls learned so much during the time he was here.”

Coach Kimble did an excellent job in the week-long camp he did for our team. The kids had a great time and the coaching staff learned a lot from Coach Kimble. We can’t wait to have him back again next year!

Our son has learned so much from Coach Kimble to improve his game. He is a small guard and John has shown him how to position his body to maximize his potential. I highly recommend private coaching lessons.

My son & I really enjoyed our session with John. He went through a lot in an hour and was giving homework. I really liked his ability to communicate with my 11 year old in a manner that he could under-stand and made the experience fun & motivational. My son was very inspired and seems more confident when playing basketball now!

Thx Coach!

Since my first review my son has had four sessions with Coach John. We see improvements with our sons skills at his practices and in games. Unfortunately, because we are so busy during the summer we will not book anymore sessions. We will for sure use Coach John before the season starts. Thanks for your time, patience and the skills my son learned in such a short period of time!

Coach Kimble was absolutely amazing! My son immediately responded to coach Kimble’s instruction because it was REAL teaching and coaching. My son enjoyed and learned so much about basketball in an hour than my husband and I could have shown him in a week. My son now understands the importance of ball protecting, power layups, and good foot work! Coach Kimble is a teacher at heart, and he is using his gift to build confident and talented athletes.
