    For the past 4 years both of my boys have worked with Coach Shaw. I have seen their basketball skills and character improve through Coach Shaw's training.

    Coach Shaw is unlike any coach we've had, he is an ally and mentor of every child he meets whether they've been with him for 10 days or 10 years..he devotes 100% of his life to helping kids..its amazing and beautiful..Coach has no favorites and he expects 100% effort and 0% attitude..specifically as a coach & trainer he knows basketball inside & out..he's a master at teaching strategy and mechanics..if you want your child to be more aggressive he'll train them for that..if you want them to shoot he trains for that along with training on the entire game and every practice he uses scrimmaging as an invaluable tool..he's an excellent conditioning and agility coach as well and an excellent strategy coach..your child will learn every aspect..and he does it with doubt 100s of kids are forever positively changed by Coach Shaw as are all 4 of my kids..
