About this pro

Top tier basketball training for all ages. Personalized workouts to improve your game to get the best results in game. Each workout is 60-75 minutes and will be extremely detailed to develop the player’s game. 

I have been training for 3 years , I train high level D-1 basketball players all the way to elementary school kids. I have been training in the Kansas City area and Wichita area. The highest level I currently train is players attending KU and Wichita State.

I believe you get the best out of every player building a personal relationship with them and getting to know what makes them tick and push them to the next level. All players are different which is why all my workouts are unique. The players throughout my program strive to shine on the floor and become the best versions of themselves every day.  

I enjoy the grind everyday. I enjoy the good days players have and the bad days they go through. I want to be here for them in other ways than just basketball. Anyone can teach them a move, but can they relate to the player to make them comfortable to work their hardest. 

I also enjoy seeing the progressions every day. I have trained players that haven't got any minutes in their games to being the star on their team. Seeing them happy makes me happy.

FAQs


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

I first talk to their parents to see what they think they need to improve on, then in the first session I try to see what their strengths and weaknesses are then progress from there. I start to build a solid idea of what to work on after two workouts if the player doesn’t come with an initial agenda. 


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

I have played basketball all my life and I have learned from a current NBA trainer that is big in the area. I study the game everyday trying to see what works in games throughout the season and what counters players use to be successful. 


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

It is $25 a workout, I do a reference discount for every person you refer and goes through a workout I take $5 off 


How did you get started teaching?

I started shadowing Luke Cooper’s basketball academies around the KC area trying to pick up on anything I could. Shadowed him for a year and eventually started training on my own. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with D-1 basketball players all the way to elementary school kids. I can teach the best the game and I can also introduce the game to newcomers. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I currently train this girl that goes to Louisburg. Didn't play any varsity her sophomore year. We have been working out for a year now and is by far the best person on her team and is working towards personal accolades for her hard work this season. Currently averaging 15.7 points. 


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

Find someone that cares about you. Not the person that played at the highest level of basketball. Find someone who cares about your progress and will come in the gym everyday eager for your improvement.
