About this pro

I tailor each Private 1-on-1 Training session based on your child’s position & skill set. Our basketball staff includes coaches who played all five positions at the various levels of college basketball, including the NBA, NBDL & various Overseas Leagues. We will guide your child through various drills & more importantly explain their use. We will teach the fundamentals that will enhance your child’s understanding of the game while playing and what to look for when watching the game. We will connect your child with an appropriate coach and a schedule to fit your needs. For group lessons, we will determine which coach best fits the needs of the group and outline a workout for all participants focusing on the necessary skills and fundamentals.

I enjoy when players have that 'aha' moment. The moment they pick up on exactly what I am teaching and can apply it to their game.
