About this pro

We provide fundamentals first, then add layers of skills to help with the overall growth and development of each individual player. We believe in offering a safe environment based on positive reinforcement and encouragement.

What I enjoy about the work we do is the aha moment that players have when they finally complete a specific skill or apply skills that we have been working on in practice in a game situation. In addition helping share the game with kids who are passionate and want to learn and improve is also why I enjoy teaching the game of basketball.

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

Our initial assessment process is to check players shooting mechanics, ball handling ability, & footwork. From there we begin tailoring a program based on the needs of each individual player. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have spent the past 12 years as an either a head coach or assistant coach at the elementary, jr.high, high school & collegiate level for both boys and girls. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our standard pricing system for our lessons are as follows. The first meeting is what we call our tryout or evaluation time. This is an opportunity for players and parents to see if our program is right for them this initial sessions is $5.  If you want to continue and move forward we offer $25 per session or $75 per month for unlimited sessions at our Mesquite. Personal lesson are available upon request.

How did you get started teaching?

I always wanted to pursue a career that I was passionate about and for me helping kids to have a great experience participating in youth sports was it. I was fortunate to have great coaches to learn from and give me an opportunity to pursue my passion.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from various backgrounds, countries, and skill levels. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently, worked with a group of 7-8 year old kids who were completely new to the sport, and for christmas asked their parents to purchase them a basketball so that they could practice on shooting for the next time they came to a skills session. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

My advice to anyone looking to hire someone for basketball lessons is to do your research, and make sure that both the instructor and student are working towards the same goals. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

The question students should think through before begining talking to teachers is, Am I committed for the long-term?
