There are a great number of young people who aspire to dominate the court and to make it big in the game, but only a few are given the chance to. However, this is not to say big opportunities, such as being scouted by a professional team and being drafted in the NBA, come by through innate skills and pure luck. 

Individuals who have reached the pinnacle of their careers in the league worked diligently and arduously to achieve their goals. Most importantly, doing so is not an individual endeavor. It requires a combination of expertise and guidance from experienced professionals. That said, if you’re a parent who aspires for your kid to be the next all-star, you will need help to hone your young one’s skills to equip him or her with the necessary tools and competencies to climb the ladder to the scoreboard of success. 

Mark Kinnebrew is a certified I’m Possible Trainer and is known as one of the best trainers there are. In 2015, he met Micah Lancaster, the founder of I’m Possible Training who is arguably the best in the business and has worked with and learned from Micah since then.  Mark has been coaching and training since 2002, wherein he primarily focuses on skill enhancement. Aside from that, he also helps basketball trainers create thriving businesses of impact as the founder of KinnetiK – Court To Cash.

Responsibility of Adults

For others, basketball is simply a hobby, an activity, and a pastime. However, there are a number of people who work hard to master the craft of basketball and strive to become the best in the game. Others are fortunate enough to generate the results they wanted, and for many, the dream simply escalates. 

It is possible to know what one wants even at an early age, but there are factors that should be accounted for to succeed in the field. Many young kids dream of becoming professional players, however, not all of them are given the opportunity to do so. This can be due to the lack of resources and support that can orient them towards their desired destination. With the guidance of adults, young ones can be exposed to various paths towards achieving their goals. That said, it is imperative that the interest of children and youths should be recognized by adults in order to provide supervision for their development as athletes. 

Given that the competition is intense in the basketball industry, it is essential to begin introducing the sport and training children in their formative years and consequently, if a child presents potential, should be nurtured. Once this is done, the journey towards a lifelong commitment to the sport begins. 

Message for Parents

As a parent himself, Mark recognizes how his words and actions affect his children in almost everything they do. When honing the skills of children and youths and pushing them to their full potential, whether in basketball or in a different endeavor, he encourages adults to take a holistic approach towards young ones and trust in the professionals who took their kids under their wings. Specifically, he advises parents to stop yelling at players during games and telling them what they should and should not be doing, especially if the individual they are calling out is not their own. He emphasizes respecting the coach to take that responsibility because that is his or her job. 


Mark is a professional basketball coach and trainer and, simultaneously, he is a parent, therefore he recognizes where his two roles converge. He aspires to push children and youths to realize their full potential while taking into consideration their positive development as individuals outside the court. With that, he calls other adults and parents to do the same. 

If you are an adult and/or parent who is interested in learning how to support your young one to become better in the field of basketball, you can reach Mark Kinnebrew through Twitter and LinkedIn. You can also visit his website and the I’m Possible Training North Dakota page.
