This may sound dramatic; but it's a true statement: Finding Sean Hardeman to train our daughter in basketball skills and in life was the best decision that we've ever made. After hearing rave reviews about Sean's creative and tough workouts for years, I finally summoned up the courage to call him on a sunny March day in 2017. Sean answered on the third ring and I began stumbling through an introduction of who our daughter, Sedona was.
He interrupted me and said these very words, "I already know all about your girl and I want to tell you about the plan I have in place to change her game."
Sedona was good at the time, not great and wanted to reach her potential.We set up a training session for the following Saturday in a big gym in Pflugerville. Sean did not lie...he had a brilliant plan to get the most out of our girl. The thing is his plan included a piece of training that others might miss, mental toughness and confidence. Sedona's junior year versus her senior year of basketball were diametrically opposed. Her strength both physically and mentally was off the charts. Sean not only impacted Sedona's basketball career, but nore importantly, her belief in herself. As a parent of an extraordinarily tall girl in a small town, I will forever be indebted to Sean for this. Sean has been our rock through this last year of challenge as Sedona has healed from a broken leg. There has never been a time that he hasn't picked up the phone when we have called (many times in tears). After every conversation, with some Sean wisdom, we feel alot better. This letter could go on for days as it would take that long to detail every incredible thing that Sean has done for Sedona and our family. Sean is family now.
My highest advice to any parent with a basketball player is to entrust your child's training with Sean Hardeman... the best basketball decision our family ever made.

"There have been many great things that have come out of my experience with the Ball-Hard organization. Some people ask why I drive the hour and a half up to Austin from San Antonio 3-5 times a week, and I tell them it's because Sean demands the best from each and every player. He doesn't just throw together a basic, generic workout to make you sweat then send you home; he sees the areas of improvement in each player's game and tailors the workout to work on their weaknesses and make them strengths. He makes the players comfortable with being uncomfortable. A person's game has no choice but to flourish in this environment because everyone is forced to constantly try new things until that uncomfortable feeling becomes something natural. Sean is the best trainer I have ever worked with, not just because of the work he can do on the court but also because of the person he is altogether. He has taught me a lot, both as a player and a person; my game has grown so much and I know that I have matured as an individual from my joining the Ball-Hard family.When you train with him, you outwork and take care of your business, but you also feel the comradery amongst all the trainees and trainers. The atmosphere is always light and it truly feels like a family. I have met many different people and lifelong relationships have been formed. Overall, I LOVE Ball-Hard and all the people associated with it. I cannot thank Sean enough for all of his hardwork and all the time that he has put into me, helping to prepare me to maximize the opportunities that God has blessed me with. I cannot wait to see the future success of Sean and all of the people that are a part of this movement."

Ball Hard is unmatched when it comes to the tools that Sean provides to the athletes. He is able to quickly assess a player and meet them where they're at in their skill development and build from there. He continuously challenges the athletes and encourages them to step out of their comfort zone in order to improve their current skill set and develop a rock solid skill set that makes them more productive at whatever level they are playing from middle school up to pro level athletes. The challenge for any athlete is in the translation from working hard in the gym to game time and being able to perform when it counts most!! I've entrusted my daughter Kyra to Ball-Hard and with all of the hard work, one of the fruits of her labor is that she is now one of twenty four McDonald All-Americans across the Nation in the class of 2015. Ball-Hard is the TRUTH and its for real!!!
