About Founder & CEO, Johnny Stephene

Johnny Stephene

When you want to play your best, you have to train your best. With Johnny Stephene to guide you, you can do just that. Stephene started playing basketball as a child and the hobby quickly became a passion. He wanted to help others discover their passion for the sport as well, so he began teaching ball-handling techniques in Los Angeles, California, so students could see how good they could really be.

Exclusive group training includes two to four players at a time in each session and lasts for 60 minutes.

The H.S.A. accepts 12 dedicated athletes per age group and runs anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks (TBA). Athletes work on strength and conditioning, beginner to advance ball-handling, shooting, defense and IQ game situations weekly.

Handlelife Camps and Clinics are held year round in both California and Florida. Handlelifers will work in various stations specializing in fundamental basketball skills and will participate in games and contests. Each participant will be placed in small groups by age to ensure that each athlete gets maximum instruction.
