About this pro

I created youth basketball academy, Brooklyn Basketball Academy that offers after-school basketball program for youth community in Brooklyn, NY. We provide friendly and safe environment, where children are inspired to learn and play the game of basketball. Our academy works with children between the ages of 6 and 17 where coaches are dedicated to develop our student's basketball level as well as their social skills. 

I played basketball all my life. This game brought me to the place where I am now, therefore, I want to share my experience and knowledge with others, so they can reach their maximum potential and become the best version of themselves.

FAQs


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

First, our coaches evaluate students basketball level. After the evaluation process (which happenes first day of practice), we designate student to his/her appropriate team based on his/her age and basketball level.

We work with each student to improve their overall game. My training sessions include, ball handling, passing, shooting, rebounding, defense, body coordination, and court awareness. We will also work to enhance your speed and explosion, improve footwork and flexibility and develop body strength. Throughout the year, our team travels and host other teams at home to compete.
