About this pro

I teach in the 3 P's

Planning - What exactly do you want to accomplish?

Preparation - You have to put in the work during training sessions and on your own.

Performance - You have to be mentality tough to transfer practice skills to game action.

I am have an old school approach to basketball training.  I focus on what the athlete needs to improve and not pushing a specific system.  I am honest in my evaluation and train because I love this game.

    Coach Duane, is extremely patient! My son is a beginner, and coach Duane works on my son's level/skills. I have seen much improvement with the little time that my son has been attending the sessions. Very professional and caring. Would recommend his services to everyone, regardless of the client's level or ability. And, he takes the time to give feedback after each session. Very cost effective for the level of professionalism displayed. I am very happy and satisfied with the decision to hire coach Duane.


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

My goal is to give the athlete the tools to get better and set proper expectations for the parents.  Some athletes may just want to make their middle school team while others may want to be part of competitive AAU programs.  My first lesson is always about evaluating the athlete and setting up a structured program.

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

I have been in and around the game of basketball most of my life.  I worked for the athletic department while in college and learned first hand what it takes to complete in high level athletics.  My daughter is a sophmore in college and a scholarship athlete.  I have been through the college recruiting process and I also have connections to high level trainers.

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

I am a couple of different options:

Single session - Flat rate of $20 for single sessions

Multiple sessions - $99/month (8 sessions) 

Specifc Plan - Based on your availability and situation.

I prefer ApplePay or GooglePay.

How did you get started teaching?

I love the game of basketball and want to pass that on to the next generation.  To me sports mirrors life and the lessons its teaches can be applied to multiple different areas. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I typically work with kids (boys and girls) 8 yrs and older.  It doesn't matter if they are a beginner or experienced player.  I expect 3 things during my training sessions:

High Energy - Everything at game (full) speed

Max Effort - You cant quit can things get tough

Absolute Enthusiasm - Positive attitude at all time

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Its awesome to see a young person that you havent seen in years doing well.  Whether they are still playing sports or not, striving for success in whatever they are doing.

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

Look for a trainer that fits your needs and goals.  If you are a beginner student, a trainer who primarily works elite atheles may not be a good match.   

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

Ask yourself how much time you are willing to dedicate to getting better.  Also, are your parents equally dedicated to making the financial investment required?
