Hello, my name is Danaejah Grant. I started playing basketball at the age of 13, from the very first day, I fell in love with the game and the rest was history. In high school (C/O 2012) I helped lead my team to 3 straight sectional title appearances as well as 3 GMC titles, where I earned MVP all three times. I also became the leading scorer (girls & boys) of Piscataway High School at 2,565 points. I later went on to attend St. John's University with a full scholar to play for the women's basketball team. There, I scored 1,600 points and won a Big East championship in 2016, which was the first one in school's history since 1988. I was also nominated to the 1st team All conference team my junior and senior year, as well as being a runner up for player of the year my senior year. I also received numerous player of the week awards and was an All-Met nominee throughout my career. At the end of my collegiate career, I was drafted to the WNBA by the Washington Mystics in the May of 2016. I then went on to play professionally in Israel and Turkey. I am currently on staff at Seton Hall University with the women's basketball team for player development. Here, I train the girls one on one and prepare them to perform at a high level. I absolutely love the game of basketball, and since I've decided to step away from playing, my greatest job has been passing on my knowledge, skills and experiences to the young women who are trying to make it to the Next Level.
I definitely got my money's worth for the workout with my son. As soon as we got in the car, he said "Dad, can we set up another workout next week?" She has a pretty flexible schedule as well, which is good for my wife and I because we have other children to run around too..
She made my workout with her customized to exactly what I needed to work out. She is a passionate trainer who pushed me to get me better & she is a very cool person. I love that she is young and relatable!!
When working with a new student, I would like for them to write a brief description on the type of player they are and things that they would like to work on so that I can put them through a personalized workout. If they do not know, then I will formulate a plan of what needs to be worked on based on their deficiencies.
I have worked out many girls from various high school and AAU teams, as well as my current job as player development with collegiate athletes at Seton Hall University.
After I finished my basketball career, many young girls and boys in the area began reaching out to me to recieve a workout. From there, I realized that I had a passion for helping the youth get better.

Make sure that the teacher is well accomplished, you want someone training you who knows the ins and outs of basketball. And maybe even more importantly, someone who has experience playing the game.
