Serial entrepreneur Jamil Abiad is continuing to make waves in the booming Canadian basketball scene with a wide array of different programs. He has an impressive portfolio of ex-students under his belt, establishing him as a renowned global basketball coach and trainer who has personally competed in Canada’s college basketball circuit as well as professionally overseas.

Playing professionally in Lebanon, Jamil got the opportunity to train with and learn from some ex- NBA players,  and has had the opportunity to learn from other high level trainers. As both a player and a trainer, Jamil learned a great deal from these experiences and has since trained athletes who have gone on to achieve great things.

While overseas playing basketball, Jamil also explored his passion for video production and editing that started when he was creating compilations of his own match highlights as a college player. This eventually led to the creation of ‘Next Level Media’, his very first business that is focused around helping other athletes promote themselves for selection by coaches. This is just one of the several successful enterprises Jamil has founded since he stopped competing professionally.

Two of his other ventures include the U17/U19 boys basketball program Team Believe as well as NL Fitness. Through both of these programs, Jamil passes on the experience and expertise he’s developed to young and aspiring athletes.

During the time that he played at a professional level, Jamil was able to develop and perfect his training system. This training system is based on Jamil’s unique philosophy, and he believes it is the best method for preparing a player’s mind and body for the rigors of competitive play.

Not only does Jamil provide practical training, he mentors and motivates his students too. In fact, the basketball veteran often undertakes speaking engagements where he talks about some of the essential skills that he learned through competition that apply to other aspects of life, such as time management, leadership, self-discipline, and the ability to overcome adversity.

Jamil acknowledges that competing as a professional athlete in any sport requires not only routine training but a strong mental focus. This mental focus needs to be worked on just like any specific skill a player has, and this is something that Jamil talks about and works on with his students.

Since the NBA championship win of the Toronto Raptors, Canada’s interest in basketball has skyrocketed. A new generation of young Canadians is now exploring basketball both for recreation and for competitive play.

Jamil was already a successful basketball trainer by the time the Raptors won and has been lucky to be at the heart of this new surge in player interest. Junior and senior basketball athletes can benefit greatly from Jamil’s expertise.

Overall, Jamil is on-track to complete his goal of helping young athletes develop confidence in their abilities and become highly competitive basketball athletes. Only time will tell what the next big move for Jamil Abiad will be.
