About this pro

Every training is custom to the athlete there is no straight workout guide. I will create an improvement guide for the athlete to improve in areas that need work and sharpen other skills. Basketball is a mental game as much as physical so expanding the athletes mind on the sport is vital to progress.

I enjoy teaching and passing on the skills I have learned, practiced, and preformed in various settings. I have played 8 years plus organized / high school / college basketball / coached youth leagues. The best part of my job is when an athlete says " I cannot " and then pulls off the left hand layup, cross over, jumpers, and dunks! This is the best part of being a coach / trainer!

    My son is very shy, that's why I thought having him play basketball would get him out of his shell, and luckily it did. He enjoyed playing basketball so much in middle school that we decided to get him extra lessons once he started high school especially since he needed to learn how to be a defensive player. He can practice free throws all day but he needed to learn strategy. Coach K has a lot of patience and was great with my son. He taught my son "how to take a charge" (I had no clue what that meant) but I learned along with him. I thought that my son's offensive skills were good (having him practice free throws before dinner) but apparently my son needed more guidance. Coach K was able to teach him a specialized routine at the free throw line. Coach K also went over fundamentals (again I thought my son knew them but he didn't get the best foundation from his first coach). I highly recommend his lessons from general bball tips to specialized techniques.
