About this pro

Hello. My name is Dwayne Clark. I have had the privalge to play basketball since I was about 10. It has taught me many things in life. The most important is self discipline. Without discipline you cannot be successful. The discipline of basketball brought me many exciting things. Friendships. Loyalty. Travel. It afforded me opportunities to make a living as well. I can teach basic, intermediate, and advanced. A foundation is key at any level so I can help develope the total person/player. I have been afforded the opportunity to get my training from The Harlem Globtritters. Tom Izzo at Michigan State University. As well from many other professional athletes. Defense is a great foundation that has been lost in the fast pace game today. I can help develop defense, speed, agility, calmness under pressure, as well shooting   Techniques. I look forward to hearing from you here's to the future.

FAQs


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

First have a Conversation about what your goals are as an individual athlete.  Then we talk about how long you have actually played basketball. I would then proceed to an evaluation of ball handling skills defensive stance and endurance. Then we start to build together a great program that fits your needs.


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

My training started at a very young age. I played high school basketball for the Irvington Blue Knights in Irvington New Jersey. We won  The County championship.  I then went on the play junior college basketball for 2 1/2 years hoping to transfer to a senior school. That did not happen my life took a sudden turn. So I ended up in the acting community in New York City. But I've use my basketball skill to actually earn money in the entertainment industry. I trained with the Harlem Globetrotters for about six months as we were developing a show for Broadway. I also had a great opportunity to be a part of Nike basketball.com freestyle commercial in the early 2000's where I was featured with many NBA and Street ballers from New York City.
