At Pro Skills Basketball, our mission is to empower young athletes through a culture defined by the tenacious pursuit of self-improvement and the genuine desire to motivate players and improve kids’ lives.
Pro Skills Basketball was founded by Logan Kosmalski and Brendan Winters, two former Davidson College Wildcat players, in 2009 while the duo was playing professionally together in Germany. The organization’s name was chosen because both Logan and Brendan wanted to teach kids the skills that they had learned throughout their careers as they ascended to the professional ranks.
That summer, Pro Skills Basketball began as a week long camp in Lake Norman, NC and was directed by Logan and Brendan while they were home during their pro basketball off-season. From there, it grew over the next few summer off-seasons to include 4 weeks of summer camp. When the pair decided to retire from professional basketball in 2011, Logan and Brendan chose to pursue Pro Skills Basketball full-time and expand it from a simple camp to a full-service youth basketball organization that includes training, clinics, camps, and AAU teams.
Since then, the organization has exploded into other cities throughout the country, starting with Ross Schraeder in Denver, CO in 2013, and has become one of the national leaders in youth basketball development. In 2017, Pro Skills officially opened up in China.
PSB not only teaches kids on the court, but also teaches life lessons off the court as well through their acronym F.O.C.U.S., which stands for Fun, Overcome, Compete, Unity, and Sacrifice. Pro Skills Basketball’s vision is to positively impact the youth basketball culture around the world!
