How did you get started teaching?

We've operated one of the biggest AAU programs in Philadelphia for over 15 years. After relocating to Miami we've ingratiated ourselves in the basketball community by organizing basketball leagues and skills clinics which ultimately transitioned into our skills training academy.

What types of students have you worked with?

Youth, High School, College and Professional. All of varying skill levels.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

At the present we teach a weekly skills clinic at the Downtown Miami YMCA which is very fulfilling. There's also an annual street festival & Basketball tournament in Italy(Modena) That we partner with and provide lessons for.

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

Find the right teacher for you. Many people rush out and try to find the biggest name or believe that the most expensive is the best option when in fact that may not be best for your particular scenario. If a trainer primarily trains pros 9/10 he expects you to have a fundamental grasp of many different concepts that you may have no clue about. So sometimes it's good to graduate to that level instead of seeking it out initially, which could lead to frustration and an unsatisfactory experience.

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

What do I want out of this training? What are my goals? Is this a hobby or am I pursuing this with a different level of intensity?
