FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Understanding what type of player you are is a key component to success in the game of basketball. Our first session will start with the basics and fundamentals of the game. I focus on basketball education along with intense physical and mental workout routines.

Sessions Include: All equipment needed (balls, training tools) Video & Camera footage, waters, first class facility.

My sessions will improve your skills and knowledge as a player. We start by establishing realistic goals and then lay out a plan to achieve those goals. It's about hard work and dedication to the craft and I guarantee you will become a better player.
