More About Coach Alana

I spent my summers, in college, coaching at our USF team camps, as well as at our individual camps doing skill development, which ignited my passion for coaching and teaching the game. Following college, I coached AAU, high school, and began focusing on individual and group training.

I have been dedicated to the game of basketball since age 12. I earned several accolades, one being ranked amongst the top 35 shooting guards in the nation as a high school senior, which helped garner attention from several Division 1 programs around the nation. I ultimately earned a four year basketball scholarship to attend the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Each session will be tailored to the players' skill level. During our first session I will conduct an evaluation to assess the player's skill-set. Following that, we will discuss short-term and long-term goals, and I will create a custom training plan tailored towards honing individual skills, tackling weak spots and building confidence. I expect my athletes to bring the heart, intensity, and work ethic of a champion.

Good coach

Coach Alana was great with my 3 kids. I saw much improvement after just one session with her. She's very knowledgeable.

My session with Coach Alana was great! I could tell that this is her passion. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in basketball. Set up a session with her and you will not be disappointed.

All in all, we have had a great experience with Coach Alana, and I would highly recommend her to others. My 10-year-old daughter had played for a couple of years but has never had private coaching. Coach Alana has been a perfect match for her. Coach Alana is positive, energetic, professional, organized, friendly, punctual, and supportive. She encourages goal setting related to basketball skills, overall fitness, and academics, and she celebrates the achievement of those goals. During the sessions, she pushes her but keeps it fun, variables, and positive. My daughter has never once resisted going to a session; she really looks forward to them, which in and of itself is an achievement. Finally, she's making significant basketball knowledge and skill gains.

I am at the second session with Coach Alana and my son (age 8). She is helping him out a lot. Much if what she is having him do in one session is what I thought I would get from signing him up for Basketball at the Y! Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! She has exceeded in one session mind you, what he was able to get in 16 weeks at the Y! More importantly, she is helping to boost my son's confidence which for me, was the entire purpose of booking her. We've had some snafus along the way with scheduling, me running late, and changing locations, but Alana has remained professional and committed to getting my son the practice time he needs! Sidenote- when we walked into today's lesson, the first thing she commented on was my son's smile on the BBall Court! As a mom, you have to love that! Without reservation, I recommend Alana to work with you or your child to hone your basketball skills!

Coach Alana is a wonderful coach. After just one session, my daughter felt more confidence and excitement about playing basketball. Coach Alana challenged her to set some short term goals, which my daughter immediately started working on as soon as we got home. I can tell Coach Alana is passionate about basketball, I want someone like her to coach my daughter, and she is really good at what she does! We have two more sessions with her, and my daughter can't wait to train with her again!

Just had our first session (group) with coach Alana. Young, energetic and knows how to keep the attention and enthusiasm rolling. My boys (6, 10 &11) had fun and learned more in their first hour than almost a full half of a season in their league play. Looking forward to watching their skill and knowledge of the game increase with every session. Thanks coach!!!

Coach Alana was very professional and knowledgeable. Our daughter had an outstanding first lesson and is very excited to work with her again. We were very happy!!!!!

Coach Alana is an excellent coach. My daughter is 12, a beginner in basketball, after working with Coach Alana her attitude is positive. The same day after her first session she came home practicing what she learned. She was so excited she look at drills on you tube and watched a basketball game with the ball in her hand. I highly recommend Coach Alana, she's very inspiring, encouraging and patient with children, she has a love for basketball that will take your child to the next level. My daughter is looking forward to working with her in the near future.

Was able to help and show me techniques, really good coach!

My son had a great lesson with Alana. I was very impressed at how patient she was with him and how she kept him engaged. He made more progress in one hour with Alana than in over a year playing rec ball.

Coach Alana is an amazing coach! My son can't wait to train with her again. He is already practicing drills that she taught him today. She works great with kids and we can't wait for our next session! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Alana's work ethic, determination and knowledge will translate into the skills mentally, physically, and emotionally that young players need to be successful at the next level.
