To be the leader in progressive training and teaching methodology. Our goal is to be the first choice for the elite-level basketball player in Canada.


RBT will empower athletes to identify and develop their full potential on the basketball court.

Coach Vlad has a high IQ for the game of basketball; the little things he would stress have made an impact on my game performance.

Using individualized, innovative and challenging training and teaching methods, we will focus on constantly improving the player`s basketball skills as well as both his athletic and mental performance.


Our training and development philosophy begins and ends with a no-nonsense approach to high-level fundamental skill development combined with mental toughness and sports-specific performance training.

RBT firmly believes that balance and footwork are the vital components to success on the basketball court. We ensure that these components are incorporated into everything we do with our athletes. Focused training is the best means for a player to achieve significant and lasting improvement on the basketball court.

RBT has created five main service formats to assist our athletes in becoming ‘students of the game’. At the same time, we work to give them a complete understanding of a champion’s intangibles; work ethic, attitude, discipline, and commitment.

If Kobe Bryant and Lebron James can improve certain aspect of their game every year, why not you?

RBT trains players and teams at all skill levels and ages. Whether helping players improve their jump shot, dribbling, passing, team chemistry or simply building confidence on the basketball court, RBT’s trainers work closely with each player, parent, and coach to develop and implement training programs that provide measurable results.

This philosophy empowers our athletes’ with knowledge and information to further improve their skills, wherever that setting may be – team, small group and individually. During training, a focus on hard work, a positive attitude and dedication to improving performance every time a player touches a ball is paramount. RBT works with each athlete to develop his or her own personal basketball blue print for improvement.

What sets RBT apart?

RBT’s Teaching Methods

Research shows that there are 5 major components required in order to achieve measurable improvement in any area of learning. These components are:

1. Diagnostics, A pre-test or baseline of skills
2. A comprehensive curriculum
3. A “road map” or plan
4. Effective training sessions
5. An authentic assessment to measure progress

Most athletes have the goal of “maximizing” their training. RBT has developed a program that is congruent with all of the above components. Our training staff has developed a comprehensive curriculum for athletes, in order to:

  • Break down every area of the game
  • Explain what skills are used in those areas
  • Integrate the intangibles that are needed for players to succeed
  • Monitor the acquisition and implementation of training skills

RBT’s Training Environment

Unfortunately, too many sport and academic environments are marred by unmotivated teachers/coaches/trainers, unhealthy and outdated teaching methods and a lack of positive learning opportunities.
With RBT, there are no short cuts to success. Athletes are encouraged and pushed to get out of their comfort zone, and to make (and grow from) their mistakes, in an environment carefully designed to foster their development and improvement as a complete player.

Get the Most out of Your Training

Your training sessions should be the best investment you make in your basketball development.
We understand that anyone coming to a unique program like this doesn’t want us to waste their time on anything that doesn’t help them improve. As a result, athletes will get as much information and attention as possible in as many memorable ways as possible, from the beginning to the end of their sessions.
RBT will teach you how to use those hours in the gym to make significant improvements that produce noticeable results. Athletes will be shown how to train smarter and harder so that their efforts pay off. They will how to ‘chunk’ their training to improve faster. Athletes will learn simple techniques that will help them know that they are improving, which will, in turn, help them build their confidence and inspire them to train more.

If you are an athlete who spends time thinking about how to improve your game, chances are you’ll love our training.

If you aren’t truly committed to getting better, RBT is probably NOT for you.
