“It was a pleasure to work with Mike Lee at the Stephen Curry Skills Academy. He brought innovated skills work, and combined this with hands-on enthusiasm for what he’s teaching to make every camper better, including myself."
Mike Lee is the founder of Thrive3, which uses basketball and mindfulness training to positively influence the lives of middle school through NBA players and coaches.
He has also conducted NBA Predraft Training, served as the Assistant Director for the Stephen Curry Skills Academy and worked events for Nike Basketball. As a basketball player development coach and storyteller Mike encourages people across the world to tap into their own personal power through mindfulness.
"Working with Thrive3 has taken my game to the next level through developing skills that are customized to my game. By breaking down NBA film, and incorporating these skills into our workouts, we’ve been able to develop skills that match my size and athleticism. Nothing we do is generic — it’s specific to my game to help maximize my potential."
“Mike is the one of the best trainers in the country because of his attention to detail. It’s individual one on one attention, even in groups or camps, that cater to where you need improvement most. During my free time I’ll be training with him because he’s elite.”

Our Most Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
If we were in the gym right now (or having a cup of coffee – I’m addicted to Colectivo Coffee in Milwaukee) here are the answers about
the Point Guard Blueprint Academy I’d share.
How much overlap is there between this and your other camps?
If you've attended our other camps, and are serious about playing college basketball, then the Blueprint Academy is for you. You've built a foundation for your game and now it's time to expand into ultra-specific game situations, drills and reads for the point guard position.
I already train with you. Why should I attend this?
The opportunity to connect with and surround yourself with like-minded individuals, chasing the same dreams, and develop relationships for the rest of your life. Plus, we'll go in depth on leadership, mental training and life skills — the things no one else works on — that will give you an edge.
Why is this so expensive?
This Academy will be unlike anything you've ever experienced. By combining basketball with life skills, leadership and mindfulness, you are not only improving your game you're making an investment in the rest of your life. How can you put a price on that?
Payment plans are available on the registration page.
I'm from out of town. Where do I stay?
The Academy will take place at 5510 West Bluemound Road, Milwaukee, WI 53208 — located just west of downtown Milwaukee.

What if I am already a successful point guard?
The reality is that unless you are a top 15 point guard in the country you need to do something to separate yourself. And, the longer we do this the more we realize that great players NEVER stop learning. In fact the more successful you are the more the simple, subtle and sometimes unnoticeable details matter. If you're looking for the next level this will get you there.
Since the enrollment is limited to 20 players, and we've already personally invited several elite level players, we don't expect enrollment to be open long. To secure a spot you'll need to register and submit a down payment today.
What is your money back guarantee?
If you attend the Point Guard Blueprint Academy and are not completely satisfied we'll issue a full refund after the Academy. In 13 years we've never issued a refund after an event and don't expect to anytime soon.
“I’ve been working with Thrive3 since my sophomore year in high school and would not be where I’m at without their training. As my game progressed, so did the training. From working on my shot in high school, to making detailed ball screen reads at the pro level, they’ve been there always helping me get to the next level. I highly recommend working with them.”
