About this pro

I focus on defense because defense wins games. So being the best defender will increase your chances of being productive on the offensive side.  

I love basketball period but it's a team game so it takes a special kind of basketball player to sacrifice personal goals over team goals. I enjoy helping individuals reach team goals.

    My 10 yr old daughter loves basketball and we were fortunate to find Derek. He has positive attitude, responsive and knows how to communicate with kids. He teaches my daughter all basketball techniques in a fun and interactive way. At the end of the lesson she does not want to leave. Thank you, Derek!


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

I found out what each player wants to achieve and we go for the goal. I will push you every practice in order to get to the finish line.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've played basketball since 6th grade all the way into high school. I started every year. I was the best defender on my team every year. I also was assistant freshman Boy's basketball coach at Decatur Eisenhower Highschool 2015. I've also won 7 Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball tournaments.
