North Starz Basketball
I've been a trainer for 12years training kids as young as 4 and my oldest trainees are in college.
My service stands out because I use basketball as a tool to help shape youathletes'tes minds, so one day they can become contributing citizens to society.
I take great pride in building confidence and working on a player's weakness.
What I enjoy most is watching the kids face when they learn something new and they figure out how to do it.
