More About Coach Alex

I have coached boy's basketball for the past 6 seasons (four in Wisconsin, two in Massachusetts) ranging from the middle school level to high school varsity level, helping develop and train players in all facets of the game: ball-handling, shooting, strength & conditioning, defense, basketball IQ, strategy, fundamentals.
Currently, I am the boys varsity assistant and junior varsity head coach for the boys basketball program at Saint Joseph Prep in Brighton, MA.

I am a member of the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) and am certified in First Aid/CPR and concussion training and am CORI and SORI background certified.

I enjoy working with all ages from 5 years old and up. Whether a beginner or already well-rounded player, I can help introduce new techniques and workouts to improve your basketball skills and habits to get you ready for your next challenge!

(You can check out some of my personal videos & drills on my coaching instagram profile @coachalexkinglsey)

I was a three sport athlete throughout my high school tenure with eight varsity letters (4 in baseball, 2 in basketball, 2 in football).

In basketball I earned Honorable Mention All-Conference senior year while averaging 10.8ppg.
In baseball I earned 1st Team All-Conference senior year, 2nd Team All-Conference junior year, Honorable Mention All-Conference sophomore year.

In college I attended the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and played club basketball where I was part of a team that competed in statewide and national tournaments.

If you choose me, as a client I can guarantee your satisfaction with your sessions. A typical session can be anywhere from 60-90 minutes that will incorporate a proper warmup/stretching process into a specific drill or series of drills, usually increasing in difficulty. However, all drills will be catered to each player's skill level and ability.

With every session there will be a focus on footwork, ball-handling and shooting, making sure to build consistency from the ground-up. With each new drill and/or move, I will always provide a visual and verbal breakdown of the skill for easier learning and transitioning. Once a player displays confidence with a new move or in a new drill, we will then implement that into game like scenario drills and increase intensity/difficulty of workouts as time goes on.

With the younger kids, we will focus heavily on dribbling, passing, shooting, sportsmanship and having fun!

Client Reviews

Coach Alex is awesome and very professional. My 11 year old son had his first trial session with Alex and learned so much in just one hour. He also enjoyed the whole training process. We decided to continue more training sessions with Alex. Coach Alex is easy going, friendly, and down to the earth. He is very hard working himself during the training. We definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a basketball coach.

My 15 year old son had his first practice with Coach Alex.
The class went very well. They practiced hard and my son left the lesson feeling like he got an excellent workout. He liked Coach Alex and in fact he heard very good feedback from his friends who worked with him in the past. Excellent start!! Looking forward to more!

Thanks for your help!

Coach Alex has great knowledge of the game of basketball and teaching to youth athletes. He came prepared with a practice plan that was perfect for my 2 boys (7 and 9) They had a ton of fun and got to learn and practice skills. Looking forward to more sessions

Coach Alex is great. He worked with us on finding a place that worked for us and his communication was awesome. He understands my sons needs and is very encouraging.

Great program. My 7 year-old son improved quite a bit in baseball and basketball working with Coach Alex and others.
Coach Alex is great!
Our 5 year old took an eight week basketball class with Coach Alex. He was excellent - extremely knowledgeable and patient with all of the kids. It was a great program!
Coach Alex worked closely with my 6 year old building his basketball skills this fall. He did a great job working with each child one-on-one throughout each session. We enjoyed the small group size. We can’t wait to continue this journey and see where it takes my little one!
Our past experience with coach Alex Kingsley was a most favorable one. He was very patient and friendly and his coaching style was professional yet personable. He taught them important concepts of the game while keeping it fun and entertaining the whole time! My kids LOVED going to basketball to learn from Coach Alex. Thanks so much and we are looking forward to another session!
