Hi, my name is Coach Q Quintin Johnson. I have been working with youths for 25 years as a profession. I currently am a student advocate at Bloomington Jefferson High. I am also in my 6th year as the Head Girls Basketball coach at Bloomington Kennedy High. I have over 100 career wins and have coached in 2 state championship games. I have been to 4 section finals and I have on 2 conf championships. I have been named section coach of the year twice. I have sent many players on to play college ball. I played my college ball at the Univ of Wisconsin-Eau Claire where my teams won over 80 games in 3 years. I also played for a national championship. I take pride in teaching our youth basketball and life skills. I specialize in moving without the ball and shooting. But more importantly the when, where, what and why. (basketball IQ) I coach boys during my summer months as I want to coach both boys and girls. I look forward to guiding your son or daughter on their journey in basketball and would love to take them to new heights. Whether it be as a Varsity player or better yet a college player. Thank you
I enjoy the look on a kids face when they succeed in a skill that they have given their all to. The satisfaction that I have a duty to teach our youth so they will once do the same when they become the teacher. It builds a society
Coach Q's knowledge of the game is second to none. He was able to teach my son the essential basketball skills needed to improve but was also able to bring out a passion for the game that I have never witnessed in my son before training with Coach Q
I really enjoy the challenge of teaching skills to different players. Everyone is different and it is not about making players a robot who all do the same things, but it is about getting the most out of the untapped ability you already have.
I played basketball at the college level. I have coached at the college level. I am currently a high school coach with over 100 wins in my first 6 years. 2 Conf titles, 2 Section titles and 2 state tournament finals appearances. I have had over 20 players that have gone on to play at the college level.
Pricing is always negotiated with the student according to situation. Not set in stone. It is about helping the student achieve their goals.
After playing in college, I was asked to join the coaching staff by my college coach. The rest is history.
I have worked with almost every type of player. Inside/Outside. As well as combo swing players that can play many different positions
A former player of mine, Kenisha Bell was drafted by the MN Lynx
I would advise to make sure that the teacher does not just roll out a ball and have you go thru the same boring drills that you can do on your own at home or at the playground court. You need a teacher that can tell you the WHY of basketball and how you apply skills to actual game play
How bad do you really want to get better and smarter. Really ask yourself if you can motivate yourself to apply what a teacher teaches you to live action
