Jay Hernandez Background
Jay is currently one of the youngest professional basketball trainers in the world. Not only does he train but he plays as well. He is currently playing in a professional league in Puerto Rico where he has matched up against some of the best guards from the NBA, NBDL and Europe. He has established the Best Prep Basketball Camp/Clinics for players who want to develop an all around game. He currently trains a number of top-level players in basketball skills, who come from the NBA, NBDL, Europe, Division I, II, III, High School and more. Jay’s latest endeavor is his Pro-shooting Workout Video, which includes one of his trainees, Wally Szczerbiak of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jay has trained over 500 players individually and has been asked to speak on his workouts to over 1,000’s of basketball players and coaches each summer. He has 3 other trainers under his wing and he has designed a flexible system that allows everyone to learn the same concepts but at their own pace. His clinics not only provide an opportunity to learn basketball skills but life skills such as how to stand up for yourself, how to focus, how to succeed in the classroom, how to be well rounded, and how to get the most out of your potential. Jay has played against the likes of Steve Francis, Carlos Arroyo, Speedy Claxton, Wally Szczerbiak, Ron Artest, Kobe Bryant, Elton Brand, Earl Watson, Erick Barkley, Lamar Odom, Desmond Mason and more. Jay’s ability to learn and apply in his teachings what he has seen up close from these great players is what separates him from other trainers.
