New Training Partner: Athletic Gaines

By Mpls Lakers, 07/15/21, 9:45PM CDT


The Mpls Lakers are excited to announce a new partnership with Athletic Gaines Minnesota.  This partnership supports our organization’s goal in providing opportunities for our youth to develop their basketball skills while providing Mpls Lakers players preferred pricing for skill development sessions at their facility, conveniently located near the Highway 100 and 62 interchanges.

About Athletic Gaines

Athletic Gaines is a well established performance training organization that recently opened a training facility here in Minneapolis.  Jadee Jones and PJ Hill lead the basketball programming at Athletic Gaines MN.  Jadee has been helping develop athletes from the youth to professional level for over 10 years and has worked with notable players such as Tyus Jones, Tre Jones, Daniel Oturu, and Jordan Taylor.  PJ Hill is a Minneapolis North and Ohio State alum that has worked with young athletes, helping them develop their basketball skills and IQ for over 10 years. PJ is active in coaching girls basketball teams for the Minnesota Stars 7th & 5th grade teams as well as helping to develop player skills at Athletic Gaines MN.

Although there were many reasons in which this partnership excited us, there were several that stood out most and led the Mpls Lakers to have selected Athletic Gaines as a training partner - their core value of providing opportunities to young players to improve and their ability to be flexible.

Our Partnership

Specifically for our program, players in the Mpls Lakers program are eligible for a 25% discount* from list prices for the monthly training rate from Mid July to Mid August.  This is a great opportunity for players to hone and improve their game headed into September tryout season.  
Players can sign-up for this special promotion price at this link: Membership Discount

Looking ahead, the Mpls Lakers and Athletic Gaines are exploring broadening the partnership to potentially include skill training opportunities in-season at their facility, sponsorship of Mpls Lakers programs, and the funding of program scholarships by Athletic Gaines.
*25% will be taken off after sign up
