About this pro

I aim to provide the highest level of training and customer service possible. I utilize technology in my workouts to speed up improvement, provide precise analytics, and to better assess players needs. My workouts are high intensity and demand a lot out of my athletes but they will see improvements while eliminating bad habits. No matter your skill level or experience I can create a comprehensive training plan to help you improve your skill set. I am always available even when not in training sessions by phone to discuss training, games, nutrition, etc. I provide a full service experience for all of my clients.

    This was a great experience for my son. Coach has the knowledge to take any athlete to the next level.

    Zach helped my son improve before his fall Club team tryouts. Not only did my son make the team but he also is a starter who is thriving on the court.

FAQs


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

The first step with working with SIT is to have a player assessment. This assessment will show us the player’s strengths, weaknesses, and needed areas of improvement. Assessments are an hour long and are structured like a typical training session. After each assessment a player will receive a comprehensive write up about their current skill set, film highlights, and a detailed plan outlining how we are going to improve the players skill set.


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

I attended Iowa State University where I was a Kinesiology Major and Coaching Minor.

Experience Includes:


-Private Basketball Trainer for the last ten years. I train Youth, High School, College, and Semi Professional basketball players.
-Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach-College Level
-Head Varsity Basketball Girls and Boys Coach-High School
-Camp and Program Director at the Youth Levels over the last 10 years
-Basketball Camp Instructor at University of Iowa, University of Colorado, Saint Mary's University, & University of Washington Summer Youth and Elite Basketball Camps.


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

I take pride in providing the best training possible and I want to see lasting results in all of my basketball players. For this reason I ask that all players commit to at least (3) training sessions per month. This provides continuity in training, while ensuring we are working enough to see positive lasting results. Pricing depends on a few different factors that we can discuss.


How did you get started teaching?

I started coaching basketball when I was still a teenager and the passion has grown from there. I have coached at many different levels and the one thing that always resonated with me was my passion for teaching the game.


What types of students have you worked with?

At SIT, myself and our other trainers aim to be fully inclusive. Your experience level, age level, and gender do not matter. We also take pride in training clients who are deaf, hard of hearing and who have disabilities. We take pride in training top Youth, HS, and College players but we are community focused and want to give everyone the opportunity to experience great basketball training. If you enjoy the game of basketball we can create a lesson plan to improve your skill set.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently had a player who came to me with zero experience make it onto one of the best Club Basketball teams in Colorado. He had his school schedule as well as a part time job to focus on but he still found the time to come to our training sessions. That is the dedication it takes to be a great athlete and I hope to instill that into all of my players.


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

Ensure you are choosing a teacher who is planning lessons specifically for you. The focus needs to be on each athlete and how you create an individual plan specific to his or her skill set. My goal is to work hard to ensure my players are great at the game of basketball not to show you how good I am. Trainers who put the player first are going to see positive results with hard work.


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

Ask yourself what kind of player do I want to be? and what do I want to accomplish? It is okay not to have grandiose goals but know what your goals are and then we will work hard to accomplish them.
