More About Coach Alex

I have always worked to train the youth and share my past basketball experiences with them. Anywhere from the Boys and Girls Club, County Recreation Centers, and youth basketball camps. I attended Marquette University and after my collegiate career, I continued to share my knowledge including coaching AAU teams in Kansas City, Milwaukee Recreation Leagues for kids, and instruction with kids in Montgomery County.

I've been involved with basketball since childhood, I garnered multiple awards from the University of Missouri Kansas City summer basketball camps and played for Bishop Hogan High School in Kansas City, MO. After that, I competed at Marquette University in 1997 and stayed connected and competed with the wealth of talent that came in the ensuing years(Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Steve Novak, etc..)

Clients can expect 1 hour sessions that involve enthusiasm, great care, an emphasis on SHOT MECHANICS, fundamentals, strength and conditioning, drills to improve ball handling, shooting, passing, defense and the nuance of the game. My expertise is also strengthening players to get them ready for the physical aspect of the game. All of these things will improve the player to use what I teach in actual game settings.

Client Reviews

My son had a great 1st session with Alex. First of all, he was on time and made the check in process to the gym easy by taking care of it in advance for us! During the session, Alex honed in on the specific skills my son needed to work on right away as a center like shooting and keeping his hands up. He repeated many of the skills several times to make sure my son could execute them properly and consistently. He also spent time with me after the session to explain some of the fundamentals he showed my son and how to reinforce what he learned at home. Going forward, as Alex builds more of a rapport with my son, I would like him to place additional emphasis on the intangible skills my son needs to improve his game like aggressiveness and confidence. Overall, my son and I both were very pleased with Alexโ€™s coaching.

My son has had several sessions with Coach Alex and it has been great! They have worked on ball handling, shooting mechanics and various drills. My son looks forward to the sessions. Thanks Coach Alex!

Coach Alex was great with my son on his first training session. I received very positive feedback from my son regarding the training session with Coach Alex. We are looking forward to training session #2!

Coach Alex assessed my son's skill level and provided a professional style workout. Coach has taken such an interest in my son's development that he has made plans to watch him play, and review video of his games. All in an attempt to customize workouts for him specifically. We look forward to working with Coach Alex and highly recommend him.

Alex is an AMAZING coach. My son Jordan can be shy but was very comfortable with Coach Alex from the beginning. Coach Alex is very patient and knowledgeable about helping players get the fundamentals of basketball down so that they can progress to be the player that they would like to be. I would definitely recommend him. 10s across the board!

Coach Alex was Awesome! He dedicated more time than scheduled to work with my son and the other athletes. Coach Alex was able to discern my son's weaknesses and gave him a few homework skills to practice during the week. My son was not comfortable with the big practice groups from previous training, and he expressed that training with Coach Alex was MUCH better! My son is much more eager and confident to start playing basketball again..... Thanks COACH ALEX!

Coach Alex was fantastic with my 12 year old son Kam! Kam felt very comfortable and told me afterwards that he learned so much from his first session! He is ready to practice everyday after school on his shooting, dribbling and foot work techniques! We are definitely signing up for more 1-on-1 training with Coach Alex!

Alex was a great coach!

Coach Alex is the best coach someone can ever think of. Only on the first day, my shot was getting better and my ball handling was improving. Thanks coach I look forward in getting more sessions with you.

Coach Alex is a great coach so far I have only done 2 lessons, but within those 2 lessons, my shot has really improved. Fixing the slightest errors which are still not yet perfect but are getting there, I have learned how to properly follow through and fix the fade on my shot. Coach Alex has also given me work on my handling improving my dribbling and different combo moves into a shot. Overall I would highly recommend anybody who is looking to seriously train and take their game to the next level, to Coach Alex as he will provide them with that and much more.

Coach Alex was great with my 10 and 8 year old boys. They received a lot of instructions during their drills and learned proper basketball jargon and technique. Happy to have him work with the boys.

After one session with Coach Alex I felt like I knew what I really knew to work one. He pushed me to work hard and I definitely saw an improvement in my ball handling and shooting mechanics

My son had his first training session with Alex today. They worked on coordination and foot work. My son had a great time and is looking forward d to his next session! I am anxious to see how he progresses while working with Alex!

Alex does an Amazing job working with my son. Very attentive to his needs on the court and focuses on fixing his mechanics as well as strengthening his weaknesses.

Coach Alex had already built confidence in my son's playing abilities. He said it is fun but his sessions have already helped him So much with his dribbling and shooting skills. Now he wants to play everytime we drive past a court lol. He cannot wait til he has his next session. I am truly thankful.

Coach Alex has just the right combination of basketball knowledge and skills, professionalism, and engagement. He was personable and quick to assess areas of strengths and weaknesses for my son. He developed a plan for growth and provided feedback. My 16 year son who has been playing basketball AAU for the past 6 years said that he believes Coach Alex can help get him to the next level for AAU and varsity school basketball. Thanks Coach Alex we look forward to working with you more!

Coach Alex took my son through a good first time session with drills that will strengthen the position he currently plays. I'd recommend him.

Really enjoyed working with Alex. He's very patient and really stresses fundamentals.

Coach Alex is great to work with. His drills are effective. He works with you in developing the right skills to make you a better athlete.

Very patient

Coach Alex is awesome!!! He is very personable and flexible with your schedule. I highly recommend his services.

Coach Alex is really great and I highly recommend him.

My first encounter with Ales was towards the end of the summer at the recreation center where he gave me a few pointers on my jump shot to make it more consistent from all areas of the floor. Everyday I would go to the gym and work on my shot and then those tips turned to more tips as I kept improving and we started training more frequently. It was great and he also allowed me to have access to strength and conditioning workouts that increased my speed and strength for better on court performance. I am still training with Alex to this day and as I'm entering my senior season I feel more than ready to make some noise on the court.
Alex and I met toward the end of my years in undergrad at MU. He and I connected through sports. He is a dedicated friend and an encyclopedia of sports. While playing with Alex, he showed a great deal of passion to win and what really stood out was his attention to detail. This characteristic in itself is a very important attribute to have when teaching/coaching. He is always willing to help and teach ones that aren't as knowledgeable or skilled...always trying to better those around him. He will be a great asset to anyone willing to train and get better.
Alex, Brings to the basketball game a mental and physical awareness that helps him maximize his abilities. Also he has tremendous endurance to play at maximum efficiency. His major focus is on defense first because he knows that is the first step in being a winner in a basketball game or any other sport. Lastly, he knows offense is a team sport. This is where his IQ is off the chart. He's able to help his team members play better and reduce errors. He is a winner! 100%
Alex has been a friend of mine since our days at Marquette university. He has a life time love for the game of basketball and on the court skills to match. He is a hard worker and has tremendous knowledge of the game. He is a true student of the game, not only regarding skills and fundamentals but also the mental side of the game.
