Coach Oliver coaching the University of Windsor
Hi Coach! I’m Chris Oliver, the founder of Basketball Immersion, and if you ever asked yourself:
- “How can I improve my coaching?”
- “How come a coaching DVD costs $39.99 for limited content?”
- “How can I afford the money or time to attend a coaching clinic?”
- “How can I find enough hours in the day to search the internet for coaching answers?”
- “How can I find a coaching mentor to ask specific questions to?”
Or if you’ve ever just needed a coach to ask specific questions to…
…You’re in the RIGHT place!
Here’s How Basketball Immersion
Helps You Get Ahead In Coaching and Player Development.

I believe smart coaches and players who want to improve MUST use their time efficiently and effectively.
After all how can you find the time to improve your coaching while balancing your life and your basketball commitments… while working a full-time job?… while being a student?… while searching through the disorganized free basketball resources the internet provides a coach?
Instead of digging through hundreds of books and webpages, spending tons of money of videos and clinics, reading thousands of academic research papers, and wasting time on strategies by so called “experts”…
…become a year-long member to Basketball Immersion (at such a low cost), and you’ll get a one-stop development experience from someone who has done a lot of the work for you…PROVEN tactics and strategies from a proven coach that I guarantee will stimulate your coaching. And as a BONUS you can contact Coach Chris Oliver with questions or to seek advice on whatever the tactics or strategies you are considering are the right ones for yourself or your team.
And the best part? I’ll cut through the fluff, showing you exactly what works how you can start doing it for your coaching and playing.
All because I have a knack for breaking down coaching tactics, strategies and research into INSANELY PRACTICAL TIPS that you can start benefiting from TODAY.
Here’s what Basketball Immersion is all about:
Basketball Immersion was founded in 2014 by Chris Oliver.

The website covers a range of basketball topics: Offense, Defense, Skills, Philosophy and Sport Sciences.

The Basketball Immersion Mastermind Group is an added benefit of your membership.
The ideas is to offer a combination of brainstorming, education and support in a group setting to sharpen your coaching skills. The group can help you and your fellow coaches achieve success. We can raise the bar by challenging each other to create and implement goals, brainstorm ideas, and support each other with total honesty, respect and compassion.
