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

Regardless, of what level the player is we'll start from the beginning.  Learning the fundamentals of the game is always important, my approach is to help a athlete with honing their skills, recognizing and increasing on their work ethic.  With the combination of dedication and respect for the game, any student of mines knowledge and abilities in the game of basketball will enhance.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The summer of 2017, I worked with a student who was entering his freshman year of High school.  We had lessons every Saturday morning he would doubt himself because he feared he wouldn't be good enough to try out for the team, but after an  intense summer of lessons and practices, not only did he make the team that fall, he was a huge contribution to their fairytale playoff run.
