  • Jennifer Brown

    They had the entire hour planned out, no down time, best 1 hour clinic my son has been involved in. They teach how to work together, even though they are working on their individual game. They give them tools, drills and feedback that they can take off the court and work at home on. They were enthusiastic, "at-a-boy" attitude and sometime "go harder" "push yourself". We took a 4 week break but plan to be back! I would recommend this clinic "hands down"!!!

  • Kim Hemphill

    We liked the speed and pace! The individual coaching and feedback as well as the praise he gives each player. He does great with skill specific drills. Our boys improved with each workout. Plus they enjoyed each workout and looked forward to them. We can not recommend Coach P enough!!

FAQs


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

First is to develop an understanding of their skill level

by Q/A and a battery of skills test . Next, develop 

a relationship with the student to know their interest, goals

and playing background.  Also let them know my playing, 

and coaching experience and few of my former players and

where they started.  Finally based on their initial battery of

skill test, begin with skill level appropriate drills and 

expectations so they know what to emphasize in their 

independent practice.
