We use multidisciplinary Sports Science knowledge to help athletes obtain college scholarships & professional contracts.  Our attention to detail, progressions, and connections we make with all athletes separate us from the competition.

I love watching all my athletes improve their abilities, confidence, and performance.

    Very happy with AOTR. Best training sessions my son has been too. Skills are broken down in detail and athletes are held accountable. Along with being extremely knowledgeable, Erick brings an energy that younger athletes respond too.

    Erick does a tremendous job on engaging and improving the skill level of the players. From basketball camps to fitness sessions, my son enjoys the experience. His coaching also has impacted my son’s performance on the court. Fully recommend AOTR!!!

    Our daughter has been training with Erick since September (2019)! He has done a great job getting to know her goals for the sport of basketball and then making a plan to help her work towards them! He does a wonderful job breaking drills down and then challenging her to continue to get better! He does all of this while being positive and encouraging!

    We had the pleasure of having Erik in Costa Rica for a players clinic at our high school. From the start, Erick was very proactive, detail oriented and creative in making our project a success. The training sessions were great and the kids at all levels were super excited. His commitment to helping our kids improve was second to none. I would recommend his training sessions to basketball players at all levels.


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

Before every session, we will discuss goals, both short-term and long-term.  From there, there will be assessments to determine where to start.  Afterwards, a plan will be made to determine how often we train together and how often you will be training on your own.  We will re-assess progress weekly.
