The mission of Hard2Guard is to produce and develop better basketball players by giving proper basketball instruction in the areas of fundamental basketball. I have trained over 20 D1 basketball players, as well as 4 NBA players and several overseas professionals. 

I absolutely love working with kids who have a passion to learn the game.  I want to encourage a person's passion for the game while helping them to realize their goals.

    In game drills and scenarios not just 1 or 2 moves, taking the time to make sure every kid gets the drills right and not just moving on, the flexible times of the training days, and the passion that the coaches put into each and every day, highly recommend

    Coach Darrell's knowledge of basketball and dtibble skills are remarkable. His teaching skills allow him to train students of all levels and will push your athlete to the next level. I have noticed a tremendous difference in my son's court vision and overall basketball abilities after joining Hard2Guard. He was recommended to us, and we have recommended him to others as well. We appreciate his services.

    Coach D has been working with my son for the past 2 years. He takes time to teach the kids and to talk to parents about areas of improvement. My sons ball handing skills are strong thanks to the Coach's drills. Highly recommended!!

    I liked that i learned elite skill set moves that helped me get by defenders and create my own shot. I also learned how to shoot through contested shots and finish layups through hard contact.
