    I liked the dribbling drills which helped improve my skills on my left hand. The drills also provided a positive influence on the the way I think of basketball in more serious terms.

    First of all, Coach Jon is a person of good character. Approachable, professional, patient, caring. Secondly, he’s a solid coach. After a few lessons, my daughter’s skill sets have improved. This is directly attributed to Coach Jon’s focused attention to details relative to body mechanics, form and function. I’m very confident Coach Jon will have my daughter performing at the next level.

    Coach Jon Ian has the experience, knowledge and personality for coaching. He is friendly, professional and on-task, which allowed for an immediate sense of comfort and trust that the basketball skill enhancement coaching would be beneficial for my grandson. So far, it’s been a successful and positive experience.

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

After talking with the parent and player, I would analyze the player to see his/her strengths and weakneses to determine the approach to the workouts.

From there, I would create a lesson plan that would entail drills that highlight the players greatest need(s).

I started when i was in college at Chapman University as the student manager for the Men's Basketball team.

After school, I worked for NJB and coached freshman and JV basketball at Rialto High School until I became an assistant coach at Chapman.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Seeing the develpoment of a player I get tremendous joy out of. My most recent client entering his Freshman year in high school has worked so hard and can see a tremendous difference in his game from when we started and he gets better by the week.

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

Always ask questions about the time you’ll be spending together.

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

Questions about a coaches experience are the most important questions someone can have. Price is important, but no matter how much you spend, you want to make sure you get what you pay for.
