About this pro

As a kid, I was committed to turning my dream of becoming a professional basketball player into a reality. Through hard work, determination and perseverance that dream did become my reality!  i had the opportunity to play at multiple professional levels, from the CBA to the Euro-League and ultimately in the National Basketball Association.
Now I have the opportunity to help you reach whatever reality you choose.  Every player has their own unique abilities and approach to learning the game of basketball. Each athlete has a desire to perform at the highest level.  This is why We exist, to provide individuals with the training to help reach those goals.  Because of the commitment and experience, we believe that together we can enhance your skills to a higher level.  The dynamics of the game are forever changing, so we must continue to evolve as well; never being satisfied with our current skills and knowledge.

    Coach Carter is amazing in his approach to teaching his student athletes the fundamentals of basketball. He is very gentle yet firm in the way that he runs his lessons. He demonstrates very sound knowledge of the game of basketball. I have enjoyed watching the level of professionalism that he shows in his craft. My boys enjoy going to The Lab!!!!

    Coach Carter has worked extensively with my son. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about basketball and incredibly skilled in the sport, he is also tremendous at working with kids and teenagers. My son has received both individual coaching and group coaching from Coach Carter and I've been incredibly pleased with him consistently. I feel that being taught by Coach Carter has been the opportunity of a lifetime for my son. He has pushed my son to be a better player and to keep working. He has taught him skills and values that exceed the game and into life. I could not give a higher recommendation than I give to Coach Carter.

    Dearest Coach Carter, you have no idea what a blessing and difference it was having my sons play basketball and train under your tootilage. We have been in organizations where favortism has come into play leaving certain children stigmatized with loss of self esteem. You never did that. The skill set and knowledge you shared with my children and the others is incomparable to none, and you didnt stop there. While teaching the hard work pays off ethic you never settled for less than stellar behavior amongst all of the youth in your care. The expectation of good morals and team work along with respect and honor was a given value because the children knew you exemplified that. The youth NEED more coaches like you especially with the high values in which you stand. I only hope that you will be around a long time, continuing the legacy you started and giving hope to this community of youth that look up to you. Thank you and i look forward to working with you again. Toni Stokes
