What should parents look for in a trainer? I think the most important thing you want to see from a trainer is that he/she is interested in more than just the basketball skills of their clients. You want them to be concerned about the kid, their personal and athletic development. Skill wise they should be concerned with making sure clients master the fundamentals of the game.
