Many players simply don't have a solid foundation of basketball fundamentals, whether it is basic basketball skills, motor skills and movements and mindset to play the game successfully. As it relates to the game, many are trying to run before they can walk.
I use fun, challenging games and methods to teach and drill these basic skills of the game, and the motor movement and mindset necessary to execute those skill in the game situation. I use small-sided games (i.e.-1v1, 2v2, 3v3). In addition, I use old-school repetition, pre and post training evaluation, hoopwork (a.k.a.-homework), and follow up visits to players' club or school games, and drop by driveway hoop sessions.
Finally, players are often far too dependant on a coach or trainer in the long run. I work with players to develop a plan to consistently work on thier game at home or at the park with limited resources and how to be creative in developing thier game.
My current role as a head junior varsity high school coach and middle school teacher at a private school in Rochester, NY area, along with previous coaching of boys and girls at all levels K-12 and P. E. Teaching experience, have helped prepare me to serve players well.
I have coaching experience in basketball from bitty ball to high school varsity. I have coached for nearly 20 years. I have been conducting private basketball lessons since 2014.
I most enjoy working to help young people see thier full potential and using athletics to prepare youth to be confident, hardworking, productive and passionate citizens of quality character.
Flexibility in scheduling, knowledge of Coach Kevin
Response time was excellent
Not only does he teach the kids how to play the sport to their best ability but teaches them about life and how to be responsible and respectful. Hands down the best coach my son has ever had!!!
Kevin was my high school basketball coach. He taught me things that I still use to this day. Hardwork and dedication do pay off. I am so thankful for the experience and highly recommend his program.
-Initial meeting and pre-training evaluation to, learn about the player, thier goals and current skill level
