About Jason Otter
A former Division I and professional player, Jason Otter has dedicated himself to player development. As a young boy he made the commitment to become the best player he could be. He would spend 8 hours a day with a basketball in the summertime and bought into the idea that hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard. Upon finishing his professional career quickly realized that hard and smart work beats talent even when talent does work hard. And thus the OtterBasketball system was born helping players all over the country realize their full potential. The work ethic he learned from spending those hours on the court spilled over into his personal life off the court as well.
Jason would earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Health & Physical Education with an emphasis in Exercise Science and Psychology. He followed that up by Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership.
