Watching the person improve steadily. Helping that young boy or girl attain their goals. As a former member of the WOrld Famous Harlem Globetrotters I learned a lot about what it takes to stay in the professional arena. I have played in all 50 states and 26 countries. I have the ability to connect with all age groups both boys and girls. I currently coach 3 Baksetball Show Teams (11U, 13U and 17U). Developing young talent is my passion. I have been serving the youth for the last 15 years through my non-profit organization Choo Smith Youth Empowerment.
Instructors are knowledgeable, motivating, pushed me to improve my game. I would highly recommend the Choo Smith Youth Empowerment!
Great teaching of the fundamental aspects of the game.
his passion and dedication to everyone who comes across him. he gives his all no matter what. you will never notice a bad day from him and he surrounds himself with only winners
Choo Smith Youth Empowerment (CSYE) is the real deal. Our son came to AAU basketball relatively late (as a rising sophomore) because I had heard not very good things about AAU basketball programs in general. My wife and I conducted a very rigerous search of programs and are delighted to have discovered CYSE. CSYE addresses the whole child in a profoundly holistic and deeply meaningful way. CYSE is not just about basketball but about life writ large. Our son has not only benefited greatly from his exceptionally positive interactions with CYSE coaches but, just as importantly, from his great team members and their parents. CYSE has been one of the best things we have ever done for our son. Thank you CYSE.
