More About Coach Alex

I have coached and trained athletes for the past 4 years. I currently coach at the High School basketball level, but I have worked with ages 10 and higher or 5th grade & up. I worked for various college camps (O.U., Thunder, S.N.U. & O.C.) I have several industry certifications. I'm certified by the U.S.A Youth Development Program and all related medical requirements for high school coaching.

I competed in High School Basketball, NCAA Division II & NAIA Division I Collegiate Athletics. I also spent two years playing professional basketball in Indonesia and Ireland.
Some accolades that I have compiled during my career are:
-2 time Oklahoma All-State
-All-Friday Team
-Top 50 Coaches Aid Player
-Independent Freshmen All-American
-All-Ireland Team
-All-Ireland College Team

I believe that getting warmed up is a necessary way to begin each session. Once we move on from the warmup, I make each training session as relevant to an actual game as possible. We will cover all crucial aspects of the game as sessions increase. Our main focus will be on dribbling, shooting, defense, boxing out, and game situations. Workouts will differ in intensity based on the material being presented but an athlete will never feel under prepared for a game situation. The focus is on constant development.

Great experience. Good teacher of the game at all levels

Coach Alex was a great Coach! He has excellent knowledge and his demeanor and teaching skills are fantastic! My daughter felt much more confident after just one lesson and really liked him. We will definitely continue working with Coach Alex and would recommend him to others!

I appreciate how good Coach Alex was with my son in our first practice. His patience and willingness to explain things in a way he understands was impressive to say the least. I’m really looking forward to more lessons & am excited to watch my son’s progression!

Coach Moorehead really knows how to bring out athletic qualities in young athletes! My son’s skills are already improving and I look forward to seeing the progress he makes from future sessions. Definitely worthwhile for gaining skills and most importantly, my son had fun!

Coach Alex did a great job with my girls!! I would say he is top notch and would recommend anyone to him. My daughters have played club ball for several years now and we have seen a lot of coaches. Coach Alex’s knowledge and ability are as good as it gets and as good as any coaches we have worked within the past. My girls during the first water break with him where telling me how much they wanted to have more sessions with him. Excellent job coach!

Coach Alex knows good basketball technique and has excellent communication skills. He has given my son the tools to make solid improvements! I definitely recommend coach Alex.

We loved coach Alex! Fixing to schedule our next sessions. My son loved every second. Thank you so much!

We chose coach Alex because of his experience and background. After just one session we knew we made the best choice! He is very knowledgeable in the game, very patient with our daughter, and very encouraging! We are excited to watch her grow with his training and become a better ball player. She also really enjoyed him and his drills!

Great job so far. Need to schedule another session.

My daughter had a great time working with Coach Alex and can't wait for the next lesson. I really appreciate the thorough feedback he provided after the lesson. We highly recommend Coach Alex!

Coach Alex is GREAT! My son really enjoys his sessions and feels he is learning a lot. I see a difference with each lesson we attend. I would definitely recommend coach Alex!

Coach Alex is great! My son feels like he has learned more in a few lessons with him than in an entire season of basketball!

Coach Alex is great. My son is 16, and he is helping him with endurance, ball handling, footwork, and shooting. Basically, he helps with everything. He pushes him, which is exactly what he needs. He is very good at what he does. You will see improvement quickly.

We are just getting started on lessons, but my 9 year old son looks forward to his lessons. I feel Coach Alex has a good balance of pushing my son, while keeping the lesson very positive. I highly recommend Coach Alex for private lessons.

great session with Coach Alex

I really enjoyed my first session with Coach Alex. The ball handling drills he had me work on were helpful in working my off hand and he provided great feedback and encouragement throughout the workout. You can tell in working with Coach Alex that he has great experience and really knows what he's talking about. I look forward to continuing my training with Coach Alex and improving my game.

Great Coach! First session was great!! His training and techniques are like none I've had before . I would recommend highly.

Coach Alex was great! My son, Tory really enjoyed the session, we've already submitted our request for more! With just this one session, Tory's confidence has already boosted to another level, he continues to want to do better and learn more. Looking forward to working more with you Coach Alex. Thanks!

We have had a very positive experience with Coach Alex and I will continue to book sessions with Coach Alex. With his vast experience playing at the competitive collegiate level, in Asia Pacific, and Europe, it is clear that he has a very high Basketball IQ - not just for the strategy and how to play the game, but the fundamentals of what an aspiring players need to focus on and practice on a day to day basis. We have had two sessions so far and my son (11 years old/5th grade) plays for a competitive AAU club and I have already noticed an improvement in his basic ball handling skills as well as an heightened "love for the game". Highly recommend Coach Alex to anyone looking for some personal coaching to take their game to the next level.

Coach Alex is a really nice guy. He pushed Kobe and helped him realize things he was doing wrong that he never knew he was doing wrong. Great 1st training session. Kobe is looking forward to his next training session.

Coach Moorehead is very skilled in basketball and is doing an excellent job training my son. After the first session I knew he was the right coach for the job. He knows the game of basketball, great drills and awesome teaching drills. Coach Moorehead has your back and pushes you to the limit to get the best out of you. I will definitely recommend him to others.

Wow, what a great session. I'm definitely impressed. Coach Alex is a true profession, and didn't waste any time in his session with my son. His approach to coaching and training is exceptional. My son is looking forward to future sessions, and being pushed.

Alex had a great training session planned to challenge my 12 year old son. He maximized the time and helped my son challenge himself throughout. His demeanor is calm and positive, and he treated my son with respect. His instructions were clear and concise and insightful. It's an hour round trip drive for us to meet with Coach Alex, but we're willing to make the drive because of the quality time my son is getting in the gym.

Alex was great with my 6 year old. We were looking for some in between season training and I think he will be a great fit for her!!! He had a routine planned and it really covered everything an I feel she took away some things from her first session.

Very happy with the workout. It had the right focus and he was well prepared. We will definitely be booking more sessions.

Coach Alex is great with my 8 year old son. He's already improved his skills and his confidence on the court is so much better. Looking forward to continuing our lessons with coach Alex and watching our son grow. I would recommend him to anyone!

Coach Alex is great. His planning and attention to detail when he is working out with my son is second to none. Having coached in AAU for nearly 6 years I pretty much knew what I was looking for and coach Alex fits that bill perfectly. Besides what I was looking for my son loves working out with him. I would highly recommend Coach Alex to work with any age group.

Alex is a great coach. My son is already improved so much in 3 sessions. Alex shows so much knowledge and experience in showing them the skills of basketball.

Alex has done a great job with my son 1:1 as well as with our team. He considers the kids ages well and then ensures he is stretching them to get better. My son really enjoys the lessons and has gotten better. I highly recommend Alex!

Great first session!

I highly recommend Alex to coach your child. He is friendly and professional with an eye for detail. He quickly recognized what skills our son needed work on and provided a workout program to help. He is organized, knowledgeable, focused and has helped our son with his game. Alex provided specific drills to help improve his game and he can work on at home by himself. We are very pleased with our time with Alex.

Coach Alex is great! He has the perfect balance of pushing my son while continuing to encourage him. In 3 sessions my sons skills and confidence have gone through the roof. Thank you Alex!

Coach Alex is a great coach. He taught useful skills in a very efficient way. He's great with kids and my son's very happy training with him. He encouraged him a lot and we already see my son's making progress and be more confident on court after a few classes. He keeps good communication with parents and always let us know about what's going on. We'll continue taking his classes and would recommend him to anyone.

Coach Alex did a great job with Mikey. He was very interested in what Mikey's goals were for basketball and what he was trying to accomplish. Alex made sure he worked on these goals with Mikey through out the session. Mikey is looking forward to his next lesson.

Coach Alex was great with Jackson. In the hour he had with Jackson he covered a lot of drills and fundamentals. Jackson is ready to go back.

Coach Alex was wonderful. After the 1st session my son wanted to go back. He worked him reall good for a 1hr. I am sure my son will improve his basketball skills under Coach Alex.

Coach Alex is great with kids. Alex has a gentle approach. He teaches them terrific fundamentals of the game. He encourages them even when they fail during a drill. He has been very patient with my student, Eduardo, who is very enthusiastic about going to lessons and wants to go to more. I highly recommend him.

He's awesome! He is very patient with my son, who can be difficult, and gives him much needed confidence. He is very positive. My son has had great improvement since coach Alex has worked with him and he looks forward to meeting with him every time! Coach Alex is a great trainer and I am thankful, appreciative to have the pleasure of having him work with my son. I would definitely recommend him if you are looking for a great trainer/coach.

Coach Alex has been superb with my 4 year old son. He has been helping him with all the basics, so he can contribute more to his 4yr old team at the YMCA. Coach Alex is very patient and my son had a lot a.fun. In fact, he gets really excited when he knows he is going to have basketball lessons with Alex. My husband and I enjoy sitting back and watching him learn from Coach Alex.

Coach Alex does a great job. He is very patient and has knowledge regarding a lot of different areas for athletic strength training. He does a good job of explaining the importance of different aspects of basketball. I would recommend anyone using Coach Up to utilize Coach Alex's experience. Not only does he have access to gym space but is also willing to travel.

Coach Alex is a great coach! My young boys have had the pleasure of working with him in both team settings and private lessons. What I am most impressed with is his ability to effectively coach at all skill levels and ages, while always maintaining a balance of fun, focus, and discipline. My boys have improved significantly under Coach Alex’s direction and we plan to continue working with him indefinitely. I would absolutely recommend him to others.

Alex shows the intelligence and passion to become a great coach and development trainer. He has spent time honing his skills at numerous camps and clinics learning different ways to teach young athletes. I wouldn't be surprised to see him coaching college athletics very soon".
