About this pro

I have a passion to teach any kid skilled or just starting out the game I have loved my whole life! I have a true understanding on what a student athlete goes thru and what can go bad with a ind of an eye.  Without the right guidance or having someone who can push you in the right direction you can fall thru the cracks very quickly. I know I was one of them. I now dedicate my life in preventing that from happening any way possible. Showing and working with you what it takes to reach your highest goal on the court and off the court! No matter what obstacle we encounter

If a kid tells you they like a sport but is scared to get laughed at, then them with the value of hard work, commitment, and determination in achieving success WE CAN over come all that together! 

Sports teaches you so much about yourself and the world around you. It can help you develop good character, values and habits early on in life.

To help you on your journey to becoming the best you can be on and off the court you have be surrounded by people who will not let you quit or fail! But also be there as a friend to talk to. 

As you will see below, not all of these quotes are from athletes.  But all of them focus on values and habits that athletes need to develop.  Let their words of wisdom motivate you for success in sports and in life!

  • “Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.” – John Wooden
  • “The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.” – Vince Lombardi
  • “If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After awhile you’ll see your rivals scrambling for second place.” – Criss Jami
  • “If you train hard, you’ll not only be hard, you’ll be hard to beat.” – Herschel Walker
  • “Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.” – Will Rogers
  • “Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
