Jeremy Major - Pro Overseas--Cyprus

“I’ve been training with Mike since i was in the 5th grade. He’s dedicated to his craft and brings a a lot of knowledge and passion to every training session. After training with Mike i always felt confident in going out and playing the game at a high competitive level. Thanks Mike!””

Flynn Cayman - Current Assistant Coach at Southern Utah University

“Coach Teller has proven time and time again he can take a player and develop them to the D1 and professional level. Anyone can take an already made top prospect, do a couple  drills, post it on YouTube and say they developed a kid. Coach Teller has taken kids who have zero recognition and accolades, and built them from ground up to D1 and the professional level. I loved my years playing professionally overseas and collegiately at the D1 level, and I was blessed to play for and work with Coach Teller in my high school years”’




Dinos Trigonis - Pangos/ FullcourtPress

Mike Teller is one of the most respected X&O grassroots coaches in the West. His teams always compete with maximum effort from tip to final buzzer and are very well prepared each time out. His ability to foster team chemistry no matter his squad’s make-up has always impressed me.”

Miye Oni

“Coach Mike Teller played an instrumental role in my development and recruitment. His ability to manage players and put them in the best situations to succeed is bar none. Pairing this with his high level skill development makes him one of the best basketball minds/coaches in the country and someone I can always look to for input or advice.”

I’ve known Coach Mike Tellers as a coach in my life for 15 years. He was instrumental in developing my skill set from the beginning of my AAU days, into my college career, and following into my professional career as well. His knowledge of the game allows him to tailor training sessions based on the player’s skills and needs!

Daniel Wohl - Champion in Israel for Team Gilboa Galil

Mike made a lasting impression on me during the formative 10 years I trained with him. In the gym, we broke down hundreds of situations into their component parts and focused on how to perfect each one. He taught me how to treat the game as a craft I could hone and improve. This is an approach I’ve tried to apply to many aspects of my life on and off the court. In college and the pros, my coaches were always impressed, even surprised with my skill level and versatility. I thank Mike for that.

Bob Xu - Team Luoyang Golden Stars

Training with Coach Teller has been amazing for me. There were times that I wanted to give up playing basketball during my high school career because of the pressure, but Coach Teller pushed me to persevere. Coach Teller did an amazing job making training interesting and competitive at the same time. I got to play against several high skill level players and became friends with many of them. He is one of the reasons that I chose to keep playing and continue my career.

We’ve recruited Mike’s players at D1 Pepperdine as well as at Whitman. We seek his kids out. From a college-ready standpoint, Mike’s work with his guys is unparalleled. Not only are they as more fundamentally sound than most coming out, what separates them is their mental capacity to understand the game and their ability to withstand the mental transition all go through when they make the jump from high school to college. I attribute this to their work with Mike.

“I’ve seen the quality of work Mike Teller does as a basketball trainer, first-hand, via the development of the players who have been a part of the BTI club program that I’ve watched for so many years and at so many venues. He’s first-rate, all the way, as a skills instructor and coach!”
