Canlan Sportsplex Barrington Location


Kessel Heat has the #1 goal of training players to become outstanding High School players with a high rate of success. Coach Kessel prides himself as being a great teacher of shooting having worked with clients such as former Bulls player Bill Cartwright's daughter and former Bulls player and NBA Coach John Paxon's son.  We do not just throw the ball out and do a series of shooting drills, we break it down and truly concentrate on proper mechanics and develop a successful muscle memory. In 2011, Coach Kessel broke down and individually analyzed each player of the Chicago Bulls jump shot to improve their technique and form.
