I focus on fundamentals and build from there. First session would include an evaluation of the players game and would adjust my following sessions accordingly. Sessions will include footwork, dribbling, passing, shooting etc. I am open to working with all ages and skill levels.
Looking to help players get better using the following: clear expectations and goal setting, hard work, and fun. I instill the importance of having a humble heart- meaning we acknowledge that we can always get better. We are not too good for any one drill or exercise, we can always do it better, faster, stronger, crisper etc.

Client Reviews

Coach Ali was awesome with my son!!!

My kid has worked with multiple trainers, Coach Ali’s terrific communication skills and attention to detail really impressed me. Constant feedback and corrective action during my 12 year old son’s coaching session... exactly what I was looking for in a coach.

Very friendly and knowledgeable, my daughter felt comfortable with Ali right away! Look forward to seeing my daughter grow.

It was a fun session. Good warm up followed by ball handling and then some shooting.

My son had a great session with Coach Ali. Coach Ali connected with him really well. He had good intense 1 hour session and it worth the time for me and energy.

Coach Ali was a great coach. My son is 12 years old and has been playing basketball for more than 5 years but even in the first session she already improved shooting technique of my son.

Patient, focused, supportive, gives big picture as well as spot instruction, constantly adjusting to meet student need.

Coach Ali was great with my daughter who is 12 years old. With just one session, my daughter's basketball skills and confidence got a big boost from what she learned from Coach Ali. We will schedule more sessions with her for sure and will definitely highly recommend her to anyone.

Coach Ali was great with my 8 yr old. She was rigorous and super positive! My daughter had a great time and learned a lot!

I've played basketball with Ali for several years, we've played open gyms, women's teams and coached you together seasonally. In my experience working with Coach Bueno has always been great leader, captain, role model and coach. She's very goal oriented, punctual, flexible and committed. She makes the game of Basketball personal and it is one of those things that puts a huge smile on her face. As a coach you can tell she is an natural competitor, she has knowledge about coaching basketball and engaging with young basketball players to execute until the very end. I believe Ali's community service and experience working with youth of diverse backgrounds is her biggest asset. She has the ability to assess someone and pull out their strengths based on their skill level. Practices, personal training, individuals are all structured well and challenging. Basketball wouldn't be the same without her.
