“Working with Coach Elimane and Coach Sypkens has truly developed my game to the next level. They not only improved my skills on the court but helped better my understanding of life itself. I’ve been blessed to be around them for the time being and just soak all the information that they had to share. I had complete trust in what they were doing from just a week in because the results start showing immediately with the time you invest with them.”

Emanuel Miller, G, Golden State Prep, Team Canada, Texas A&M

"As a basketball shooter, a lot of times I settle and tend to 'live or die' by my shot. But once I started working with Ryan, I've learned to expand other areas of my game (ball handling, moving without the ball) that ultimately allow me to get my shot off easier. He's also helped me to refine my mechanics, which help me to get my shot off faster, even when guarded by bigger defenders."

I would like to thank Touch Shooting for dedicating their time, effort, and over 100 miles worth of travel everyday just to make me a better player. I went from shooting 30% from three to shooting above 40% in less than 6 months. It’s not only the skill development they specialize in, but I also developed a more mature IQ as a point guard. I recommend anyone who wants to take their game to the next level to give their time to Touch Shooting.

"In the past few months working with Touch Shooting and Coach Ryan as a trainer we have not only seen a tremendous growth in our son Ben’s skills and mechanics, but also as a young man.  The conversations you've had with him and the things you make him think about, such as setting future goals and appreciating your life have really stimulated his wanting to work harder and go stronger with basketball.  You have been a great role model for him to look up to with the path you have taken in your basketball life. Ben has the list of goals you created with him on his bedroom wall, which helps him to stay focused on the journey you are helping him with. We sincerely appreciate the time and belief in Ben and his basketball.  He loves every training session, As well as how you’ve helped him with the psychological part of the game, which sometimes is a larger piece then the dribbling and shooting.  We look forward to the growth you and Ben will develop together on this journey."

Berry Roseborough, G, Father of Ben Roseborough

I enjoy working out with Ryan Sypkens of Touch Shooting. His high intensity workouts emphasize on shooting the ball with the same form and mechanics every time , along with awesome drills that are very "game like." His shooting expertise has helped me improve and perfect my shooting mechanics and accuracy in game speed environments.

Training with coach Ryan and coach Elimane has truly been a great experience. From them waking up every morning to come and train me and my teammates is truly a testament to how committed they are to helping me become a better player. I can say that no matter the day they always came In the gym with that  same great energy . Major thing they preached was you have to get your reps up. I can honestly say if you stay committed to getting better you will see great results.
