Founder & Director of Player Development













Taylor Wayer has been involved with the game of basketball as a player, coach, and trainer for 20+ years.  He played high school basketball at Bishop Chatard High School in Indianapolis, IN and continued his playing career in college at Indiana University as a walk-on under Coach Tom Crean.
