ABOUT US

With over 75 years of basketball experience, our instructors posses a wealth of knowledge about the game. This allows our coaches to teach with the love, respect and passion that we all feel for the game. Our staff is able to teach basketball in a way that will break down every aspect of the game into basic simple skill building drills, that can be worked on anytime. There is no rush to learn these drills, as we stress proper technique over speed. We will slowly slowly go through each drill until your child is familiar with each and every step and movement. We promote body control, balance and confidence. Even if a student is struggling with a particular drill or move, they are rewarded with positive praise focusing on the strides they have made rather than their struggles.  WE DO NOT YELL! WE DO NOT INTIMIDATE. Our goal is to build confidence and a love for the game through praise and reassurance. Children always leave our camps and clinics feeling good about their new knowledge and abilities, hungry to return for more lessons. As these basic skills progress, we will reconstruct them and the student will learn to incorporate these skills into his/her overall game. The lost art of the mid range game (15 ft) will be resurrected, as well as many other basic skills that I see lacking at every level, including the NBA. Our focus will not only be on offense, we will also spend a healthy amount of time teaching proper defensive stance, rotations, hands and feet positions, and proper slide technique. In short, we are a one stop shop for ALL your basketball needs!

Just remember, No one is born spinning a basketball on his/her finger. It is through hard work and dedication that greatness is born. We will give you the skills, but the dedication and hard work must come from you.

MEET THE COACHES:

​​My love of the game started very early in life. I played on my first organized basketball team when I was 5 years old and I played in either park leagues, school leagues, or reebok slam n jam leagues until I was 24 years old. My aspirations for any type of pro career was cut short because of a knee injury suffered, oddly enough, at work, not on the court. However, my love and passion for the game never dwindled but instead grew, as I eventually got involved with one on one tutoring and coaching. I eventually went back to school to get my AA in Kinnesiology, and I currently coach at the highschool varsity level

​​I was born in Los Angeles, CA. and I have played basketball since I was 14 years old. I attended Northwest Christian University in Eugene, OR, where I received USCAA All American Award in 2002.  After college, I played professional basketball in Essen, Germany.  Afterwards,  I returned to the States and began a career in acting. However, I always stayed involved with the game. In fact, most of the characters that I played while acting were basketball players. My most recent film was "Semi-Pro" starring Will Farrell.  I now coach highschool basketball. My coaching style allows me to teach at your child's pace.
