About this pro

I really emphasize the importance of attention to details, at all times. You develop much faster with focus and follow through. I am very transparent and fair about my expectations and sensitive to my clients' needs and current abilities. I also communicate the importance of  being fully invested in the training to get the most out of it. I attend  games, if you're on a team, to get a better feel for my clients needs and to modify the training accordingly. You will experience first-hand a fun, encouraging,, positive, learning environment to help you reach your fullest potential!!

I enjoy making a difference in my clients' lives and watch them develop their skills for both on and off the court success from hard work and discipline. Establishing a long term relationship with clients is extremely rewarding also!

    Oh i have work with coach Darry for 2 days only and he is really details oriented which is great since details is what makes the differences between good and great players... in 2 days i have seen a lot improve just in my shooting mechanism... we still have a lot to work on but i have no doubt he will get me right by the tryouts time.... Thamks again coach for your availability and everything

    Coach Darryl is amazing! I saw improvement after the first lesson. His instruction is quality and I would highly recommend Coach Darryl/Shooters Basketball Academy.

  • Michele Sturdivant

    Always a great experience!!! If you are looking for advanced shooting training to improve your game this is the place to be. My son has been training with the trainer one on one for the past two years. I can tell a big difference in his shooting form and his coach is happy when he is hitting the threes in the game.

    I liked the attention to detail and focus that is shown throughout the workouts.

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

Initially I observe and get a feel for their current skill level. I take some video footage. After I  make an  assessment, l create a specific workout program based upon each clients' individual needs. Parents and clients are then given feedback and a plan of action to execute the training process. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a personal trainer and player developer for 7+ years with a very high success rate. I network with  other coaches in the area who can verify my work. I've played high school,college,and pro basketball. In my spare time I assist with running camps/ clinics with some of the best known and successful coaches in the area. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$40/hr( private lessons)

$30/hr( semi private lessons, 2-3 clients)

$20/hr( small group lessons,5 or more clients)

I do offer package deal discounts for a certain amount of lessons upfront

How did you get started teaching?

Initially working with my daughter around age 5, I started getting a lot of feedback from parents and others about my work. I took an interest in what they were saying and it developed naturally from there. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Elementary, Middle, High School, College, and Pro interest students

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my first clients scored 20 points in an AAU championship tournament.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure  when selecting a coach of your choice that they can help you to become a complete well rounded player. Not just in focusing on skills only, but making sure you have a foundation first with teaching fundamentals if you are a beginner. The skills are aquired a lot easier and the knowledge of how to execute them if you have mastered the fundamentals first!!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you dedicated, disciplined and committed? Are you willing to give it your all during training?Are you willing to practice on your own? Are you coachable? Are you patient with yourself?
