Shot Doctor Basketball
About this pro
I am able to recognize, diagnose and fix basketball shooting flaws that many other coaches miss or do not correct properly. I love working with players who want to learn and get better and are willing to adjust how they shoot in order to be consistently good. It is very satisfying to see players I have trained in camps or private sessions perform better than they ever have before.

My daughter has only had one lesson so far with Coach Topp, but after only 3-5min working with him she was already showing improvement. She is very excited to continue working with him and excited about her continued progress!Apr 14, 2018Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After a brief ball-handling warmup, I put the shooter about 8 or 9 feet from the hoop to shoot. I can determine the flaws in shooting form within 5 to 10 shots taken.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a B.A. and an M.A. in Physical Education. I have coached basketball teams in middle school, high school, community college and semi-pro. I teach elementary Physical Education, so my experience spans a wide age range.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always been fascinated by the basketball shot and have tried to learn its intricacies. In 1992, I began working basketball shooting camps for Buzz Braman, an NBA shooting coach. In 1997, I was hired by Shot Doctor Basketball Camps, Inc. to be a shooting coach. I have grown, studied and developed ever since.
