I specialize in speed, sports fundamentals, strength and conditioning; as well as football and basketball position specifics.

I am and have always been involved with sports since childhood. It is more of a way of life to me and I enjoy being a bridge builder to athletes of all ages who are committed to work. My progression training style allows athletes to learn at their own pace and focus on mastering how the body works. 

I enjoy seeing the lightbulb turn on as athletes gain confidence in their fundamentals and or position specifics we are working on.

FAQs


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

BASKETBALL

Basketball is about fundamentals. We will cover defense, dribbling, shooting, passing, and rebounding. All sessions will be progression based. As the athlete shows he is developing technique each drill will get a bit harder. 

Most sessions are position specific as basketball client normally have specific skills they would like to develop or be better at. I do offer fundamental workouts, where we touch on all the basic skills needed for any given sport. Then, as the athlete shows improvement we will continue to progress to more position specific, and or technique based drills. For skilled players, a generic work out starts with a light stretch, band drills, plyometrics, circuit training, dribbling, hand eye coordination, shooting drills and strength and conditioning (depending on age and experience).

FOOTBALL

I offer fundamental workouts, where we touch on all the basic skills needed for any given sport. For football position specifics, we start with position basics, then as the athlete shows improvement we will continue to progress to more position specific, and or technique based drills.

For skilled players, a generic work out consist of speed ladder, plyometrics, circuit training, stance & start, hand eye coordination, cone drills and strength and conditioning (depending on age and experience).

All in all, if you let me know what you are looking to be better at I can tailor the session to focus on the specifics shared prior to any session.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Ages 6-11, Each lesson is $50 per session for an hour. $75 for a hour and a half.

Ages 12 -18, Each lesson is $65 per session for an hour. $100 for 2 hour. Most athletes in this age group get the most (fastest results) out of the 2 hour session as we work for about 1 hour and 45min with the remaining 15min being for rest and waterbreaks

Group pricing is available with minimum of 3 sessions scheduled. I am also willing to be flexable if you can refer additional business.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be sure whom ever you work with is able to quantify how the drills and stuff they have you do, will relate to your particular sport.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Be honest about your skill level. Ask about water breaks, and what equipment is needed, running shoes or cleats, sun screen,  will you work indoors or outdoors, etc.
