What I enjoy about the work I do is seeing kids being able to find that confidence in themselves knowing that if they work hard the result speaks for themselves.
Coach Bogus has done an excellent job with my 12 and 10 year old daughters. They were both new to basketball and greatly improved their skills under his instruction. He is natural at coaching children. Coach Bogus works then hard while having a fun time. I highly recommend him.
Coach is very knowledgeable and organized during his sessions. He also helped my Son build his basketball I.Q.
He helped me improve my all around game
It was more than just a usual workout. Coach Jeremy made sure that I was not just doing the drills but also paying attention to detail and he explained why things should be done a certain way! I’ll be doing more workouts with him when I’m here. I’m currently playing pro ball in Asia and was recommended to Jeremy by a friend while in Birmingham.
My typical process for working with a new student is getting to know them personally . As well as identifying there skill level. For example what they are good at and what needs improvement through the process
