  • Denise Lagaly

    While training my daughters over the years, George really listened to them and was able to give them the tools and support they needed to keep inmproving their game. He is calm and patient which made them calm and really listen to his corrections and implement them. He works right along side and doesn't waste time- it's a workout for sure! He also touches base with his athletes before and after games and my daughter's would frequently text him if they needed help making adjustments in their game or just to tell him how great the game went! His knowledge is unparalleled and the improvements in his players after workouts are exceptional.

    Coach Free was able to pull out the best in our son while also pushing him to get better every day. He continues to teach him very valuable skills that can be used both on and off the court.
