THE BENEFITS OF TRAINING WITH THE
CLEVELAND BASKETBALL SCHOOL
1. “EVERY DRILL IS PURPOSEFUL AND PRACTICAL. EVERY DRILL THEY DO I CAN SEE BASKETBALL PLAYERS ACTUAL USE IN A GAME.”
2. “DRILLS ARE EXPLAINED! SO MANY PROGRAMS JUST TELL THEIR ATHLETES TO “DO THIS BECAUSE I SAID SO”. NOT CBS, EVERY DRILL IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THE “WHY WE WANT YOU TO DO IT THIS WAY IS BECAUSE”. THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF ATHLETICS, MAKING SURE THE ATHLETES LEARN, NOT MINDLESSLY HAVE THEM DO DRILLS.”
3. “TEAMWORK, SPORTSMANSHIP, AND FUN ARE FOCUSED ON FROM START TO FINISH. THESE THREE ATTRIBUTES GO GREAT TOGETHER AND ARE THE FOUNDATION OF CBS. I’VE NEVER SEEN AS MANY YOUNG PEOPLE CLAP AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER AS I HAVE AT CBS. TO GUEST COACH AT SUCH A GREAT PROGRAM IS TRULY AN HONOR. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO SPENDING TIME AT CBS.”

"One day you're training the #2, #16 and #49 pick in the NBA draft DeAngelo Russell, Terry Rozier and aaron White, then the next day you're eating wings with JP at Wingstop in Belmopan Belize. Then the next day you're doing your thing training the youth in beautiful Punta Gorda, Belize. That's the Cleveland Basketball School"~ Bernie Tarr

The Cleveland Basketball School emphasizes hard work, character and respect. Please read our testimonials to learn how CBS instills excellence on the court and in life:
Recently I had the opportunity to guest coach at The Cleveland Basketball School. I love watching Coach Paul and Head Trainer Robbie in action as they create a positive learning environment. Things that The Cleveland Basketball School does well that makes them a great program are:
*Every drill is purposeful and practical. Every drill they do I can see basketball players actual use in a game.
*Drills are explained! So many programs just tell their athletes to “do this because I said so”. Not CBS, every drill is broken down into the “why we want you to do it this way is because”. This is such an important piece of athletics, making sure the athletes LEARN, not mindlessly have them do drills.
*Teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun are focused on from start to finish. These three attributes go great together and are the foundation of CBS. I’ve never seen as many young people clap and encourage each other as I have at CBS.
To guest coach at such a great program is truly an honor. I always look forward to spending time at CBS.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE CLEVELAND BASKETBALL SCHOOL FOR COMING DOWN TO STEUBENVILLE THIS SUMMER. COACH PAUL AND TRAINER ROBBIE BROUGHT AN ORIGINAL BLEND OF BALL HANDLING, PASSING, AND SHOOTING DRILLS THAT HAD OUR KIDS CHALLENGED AND LASER FOCUSED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE THREE HOUR WORKOUT. THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO THE CREATIVITY OF THE DRILLS OF TRAINER ROBBIE. SINCE THEIR CLINIC, OUR PLAYERS HAVE INCORPORATED SOME OF THESE DRILLS INTO THEIR OWN WORKOUTS AND WE HAVE NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IN OUR SKILLS. HARD TO IMAGINE THE BENEFIT OUR PLAYERS WOULD HAVE IF WE HAD ACCESS TO CBS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

Dear Paul and Robbie,
I just want to say thanks from all of Belize basketball enthusiasts. What a thrill it was for me to see the Belize high school all star team go through a great skill training session where the players never lost focus for the full hour you and Robbie put them through. On our eleven day trip to the King`s James Classic all of the guys commented on how INSPIRING YOU GUYS MAKE WORKING ON YOUR GAME FUN. THEY CAN`T WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO RETURN TO BELIZE.
Hey this is Alan Stein with Stronger Team and DeMatha Catholic Basketball, if you’re a player or coach anywhere you have to check out the Cleveland Basketball School, it’s absolutely the best.
Dear Paul, I just want to let you know what an incredible job you and Robbie did on your visit to Belize. As the Director of Basketball for the country of Belize,one of my jobs is to improve skill development throughout the country and what the Cleveland Basketball School did in those 5 days was incredible. The players are still talking about how intense, organized and challenging the drills were. They were amazed at Robbies ballhandling skills and how hard he worked at them. Once again thanks for everything. You guys opened eyes for Belize Basketball.
I’ve been knowing Robbie and his family for 15 years now and I have never met anyone who has the drive and passion to help players succeed not only in basketball but in life as well. The Cleveland Basketball School has so much to offer a kid trying to develop basketball skills and a good mindset. Robbie Haught, who is the head trainer of the Cleveland Basketball School, is a driven young man thriving to be successful and help players out along the way. I played at Kent State for four years and I’ve had the chance to work out with many different coaches and trainers to try and shape my game. I have never worked with anyone whose dribbling circuits can top the depth or intensity of the drills that Robbie put me through. Some of the things he teaches and can do with the ball is simply amazing and not to mention he didn’t give me much rest in between sets making me focus even harder as fatigue started to set in. Since working with Robbie my dribbling skills have gone to another level and he has taken my game to newer heights. Another reason why I recommend Robbie to any young basketball player out there is his work ethic. There would be days that fatigue was getting the best of me and working on my game was the last thing on my mind. Robbie would make me feel good about getting better in the gym and that motivation is something a player needs moving forward with their career. I recommend the Cleveland Basketball School to players of all ages and all levels who have the ambition of becoming a better basketball player.”
I have been in or around basketball my entire life. Having grown up in Indiana, some of my fondest childhood memories are of my Dad sharing the stories of the teams, coaches, and players that made “Hoosier Hysteria.” God was the most important person in our household, followed closely by Bob Knight. When I played, I participated in camps, clinics, and classes, but nothing I ever did or witnessed prepared me for what I saw Robbie put my 15 year old son through. Because my son attends an out-of-state boarding school my first opportunity to enroll him in Robbie’s dribbling class was during my son’s most recent Spring Break. It was only an hour class, but the drills he learned are ones he has taken back to school with him because he recognized that doing what Robbie taught him was the only way he is going to get better. My son’s school’s Headmaster (who incidentally was captain of his Yale basketball squad) was so impressed with the drills my son brought back that the he is requiring the entire team to do them.
Now, my son looks forward to coming back home for summer break for more than the obvious reason of school being completed; he wants to get back in Robbie’s gym. As a parent (who funds my son’s dribbling classes), I especially appreciate that Robbie has a well thought out plan for every class and there is no downtime. The entire hour is focused as it should be; on excellence.
I have attended many high profile camps over the past three years (Kevin Durant, LeBron James, NBA top 100, All American Camp) and have the privilege of working out with many great people. I thought that those workouts would be the best that I have ever had, until I went to see Robbie (Cleveland Basketball School). It was more intense and a much harder workout than I ever imagined. The dribbling skills were incredible and he never seemed to let us rest, he was constantly teaching. I believe that he is one of the best “dribbling teacher” that I have ever worked with. Besides working hard every minute we also had fun. I would highly recommend all basketball players of all ages to sign up for his classes, it is well worth it. I hope that these skills help me over the next four years while I am playing in College.
