I have over 30 years of coaching experience. Coaching college, AAU, High School and Jr High players. For the last 15 years I have been training people of all ages and skill levels. In small groups, as well as individual training.
I can set up a program that will help your child’s development and understanding the game of basketball. I will cover shooting, ball handling, passing and athletic agility.
Lessons take place at Saint Albans School, 3551 Garfield St. NW DC, Where I am on the coaching staff.
I will be glad to help you in any way I can.
