The Story of MDB

MDB founder Kevin Kelley, first started offering a training program in June of 1993 after serving as an assistant men’s basketball coach at Winona State University while completing his MBA degree.  He joined the WSU staff after finishing his playing career for the Warriors and quickly discovered that more individualized training was needed for the boys and girls playing basketball in Minnesota.  Summer camps were not enough and Kelley envisioned a year-round program that would give athletes an opportunity to work on their individual skills and self-confidence.
 
 
 
 

 
Things got rolling in 1994

Coach Kelley first offered a MDB Summer Program in 1994 at a Bloomington location with an enrollment of fewer than 100 athletes.  By 1998 there were approximately 750 athletes training at eight (8) different locations.

What once started as a program offering only small group lessons has, fifteen years later, grown to offer everything from Private Lessons to Team Training to Strength, Speed & Vertical (SSV) Workouts to Coaches Clinics.  Many of the services we offer the approximately 3,000 athletes we work with annually take place off-site in gymnasiums across the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

Our staff is made up of enthusiastic, passionate, knowledgeable coaches who truly believe in the MDB philosophy of training.
