Evaluations are key when it comes to my individual sessions. Breakdowns of drills and techniques to a level in which young players (or advanced) will understand will improve their game today and in the future. I hope to not teach at kids but engage them in their development and all around game by explaining and demonstrating how and why we are doing what we are doing.

Client Reviews

Alli is a wonderful coach. My 13 year daughter loves to train with her. She knows basketball and teaches according to the players ability. Gives practical drills to focus on and teaches basic skills and techniques. Highly recommended

My daughter loved her 1st session. Not only practiced the game but gave insight on why plays are run and the benefits as well.

Awesome Coach

Coach Alli was awesome my kids learned so much. She is great with all ages and levels of experience. She really knows the game.

Alli is an amazing coach and has really helped my daughter in developing her skills and knowledge of basketball. I highly recommend her.

Thanks Coach Alli! The skills and knowledge you teach are extremely relevant and easy to follow!

She was super nice and I had a very great time learning from her! Super knowledgeable and had very good drills!!

Although I personally do not know much about basketball, I know that Alli has helped my little brother in more ways than one. I've worked as an SAT prep instructor for a decade. I know my craft and can tell when another knows his/hers. Alli knows basketball! My brother has been meeting with her on a biweekly basis for 4 - 5 months. He has expressed that he definitely finds the lessons to be beneficial.

With Alli's direct assistance, I was able to get my brother onto an AAU basketball team just before the season's end. Alli even came out to his tryout as a show of support. When the team resumes playing in the Spring, he will have a place. Thank you for everything Alli! You've gone above and beyond what I expected when I initially contacted you. For that, I will be forever grateful!

-Ryan Krug

Alli is a top notch coach! She easily moves from a strategic to tactical level and allows the player to not only get inside the mind of a coach but teaches also teaches a a level of detail I’ve not seen before. Willian is soaking all this information up like a spurge and I’ve already seen improvement in his game in only a few sessions.

We engaged Alli for some instruction for our granddaughter and are highly pleased with her results. We plan to continue using her in the future.

Alli teaches something new every time and focuses on the whole well being of the athlete. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and great to work with. She has been a complete game changer👍🌟😁

Being a former athlete myself, I was very impressed with Coach Alli. Her knowledge of the court and attention to body language was on point. My daughter is a beginner basketball player and left handed. After her fist practice with Coach Alli she was able make a determination that she may actually be a right hand shooter and I concur.
We are definitely scheduling more practices with Coach Alli. Couldn’t ask for a better teacher for my daughter and developing her skills.
Thank you

Coach Alli did a great job working with my Sophomore Daughter. What I liked best was that she was instructing her, pushing her, and supporting her all at the same time. We were happy to work with Coach Alli and look forward to more lessons.

Coach Alli really is an awesome Coach! My daughter loves her. I love that she teaches my daughter how to utilize her strengths to be a better player.

Coach Alli is very knowledgeable, she breaks it down very well and explains the game of basketball in way that beginners can understand it without taking anything away from the game. The training schedule was well prepared, my daughter stayed active through out the training, and gained a lot in her first training, with that being said we have finally found a great knowledgeable basketball trainer and I will definitely be booking another session 🏀

Coach Alli is amazing. She thoroughly makes sure my son understand basketball terms and the importance of each position. I saw improvement in my son almost instantaneous, from his shooting posture and the use of his legs. Coach Alli is passionate about basketball and it is seen throughout every session. I highly recommend her and I’d course, will book more sessions!

(no details provided)

Coach Alli prepares a plan for the session and covered a lot of material. She helped my daughter instantly with instruction on shooting posture and using her legs more. She created drills to practice dribbling and shooting. She also covered defensive principles and ran drills to help my daughter understand the different defensive strategies. I plan to use coach Alli more. She also has a great personality and made the session fun.

Coach Alli is fantastic! I found her to be excellent in what she does, how she softly connects and explains every drill in detail. She is extremely professional, punctual, responsive and someone that takes pride in what she does. I highly recommend her and look forward to work with her in coaching all of my children.

What can one say when she has over 59 reviews all 5 stars! Alli is such a pleasure to work with it. We would be sticking with her if we weren’t moving to Miami. We did the 10 package deal and worth every dollar. She is very easy to work with for scheduling. I love the fact that she gave my son (cayden) homework for drills and has opened his eyes on Basketball IQ. She made him work up a sweat every session! You truly are the best and will be missed! Like I mentioned earlier, what can one truly say about Alli who has over 59 reviews all 5 stars! It only says one thing.. she knows what she is doing and does it great! Highly recommended


Did a great job with my 9 year old son. She taught him the fundamentals and had a good focus on fitness and balance.

Coach Alli is a great coach!! She explained everything she was demonstrating with my daughter for every exercise. She is involved with each exercise. Coach Alli made my daughter feel comfortable and eager to learn more about the game of basketball. Looking forward to more sessions. Thank you Coach Alli!!

This was our first session with Coach Alli, and I have nothing but positive things to say about her. She is very thorough, and is sure to explain the “hows” and “whys” to everything she teaches. She took the time to assess the level at which my daughter plays and gave her pointers to work on outside of the sessions. We can’t wait to work with Coach Alli, again.

(no details provided)

Alli is great! Pushes my daughter beyond her comfort zone which is so needed! My daughter hates it since she is pushed hard but loves her and can’t wait to go back to see her. Definitely seen an improvement in her game. Couldn’t recommend Coach Alli more!

Good. Training

Coach Alli was great. We learned so much. Can’t wait to work with her again

Alli was amazing and super patient while training my two children. I liked how she combined both basketball, strength, and cardio into their workout. We look forward to our next trainings with her!

Brady enjoyed his session with Alli. She is a terrific coach and even better person. We look forward to working with her weekly.

Alli has an Awesome demeanor outstanding knowledge of the game. She adjusts drills to the skillset and or strength of the player.

Coach Alli's first session with my 9 year old grandson was remarkable and enlightening. She pointed out somethings about his dribble and skills that no one else had. He can't wait until his next training session. Top notch.

Coach Alli was awesome! My son had a great time and learned a lot in just the first session. Was a great experience and will continue working with her!

On our recent spring vacation we were looking for something that we could do to give our daughter some training while away from her regular practices. We got exactly that and more. It was our first experience with one on one training and coach Allie was perfect, working on things that is not always available during a regular team practice. Coach Allie’s knowledge of the sport and personal training is first rate. Our daughter loved coach Allie and we are looking forward to more sessions on our next visit to the Tampa Bay area.

Coach Alli is a huge advantage for my son. She offers a great perspective and I can see improvement in my son’s basketball knowledge for sure. Working with her is a good investment!

We are extremely impressed with the amount of detail and knowledge coach Alli provides. We will continue to seek her guidance and can honestly say look to continue having her train our son.

(no details provided)

Great trainer! Very knowledgeable and really cares about improving your child's skill set. Coach Alli made our daughter feel comfortable where she could ask questions and communicate what is happening in game situations so she could learn the proper techniques to improve and be successful. We would definitely recommend Coach Alli to anyone with children who play basketball and want to get better as well as learn the game.

Coach Alli is great with my son. She explains everything in a way that he understands. He has really shown a desire to work hard and learn as much as possible from her.

Coach Alli is fantastic. There were a couple of things that really impressed me about Coach Alli at my 13 year old son's first training session with her.

First, she has a great knowledge of the game. She would teach him the physical fundamentals of a technique and then explain the basketball strategy behind the technique. I could see the light bulb going on in my son's head.

The other thing that really impressed me was her honest and positive critique of my son's skills. She instantly identified some of his weaknesses and went to work correcting them.

My son couldn't quit talking about the training session on the way home. Hearing him talk about it, I can tell working with Coach Alli is going to motivate him to become the best player he can be. I couldn't be happier with our decision to hire her!

My daughter loved Alli! She was great about helping her improve her form and teaching her the fundamentals. I would definitely recommend!!!

(no details provided)

Alli was fantastic! She's outgoing and professional. She coveted training from the rules of the game to stance and techniques. I look forward to continuing my sons training with her.

She is very patient and and works with me on what skills I need to improve on.

I loved how honest you were! It actually helps a lot when you tell me directly what I am doing wrong so I can fix it. It might take me a couple but it's so helpful. Also, I loved how you could tell what my weaknesses and strengths were without asking!

Great coach

Coach Alli is great! She took the time to meet me & my daughter (age 11) before we signed up for a single session. She was welcoming and listened to what we were looking for and created a customized plan for my daughter. She makes good use of the time we spend together and my daughter looks forward to her lessons & time with Coach Alli. Highly recommend.

We are truly impressed with Coach Alli. She is coaching my 10 year old beginner player and she loves her. Coach Alli so far has given her better formation, technical understanding, and has worked with her on coordination, strength and conditioning. My daughter loves having a female coach that is passionate and patient while pushing her.

Coach Alli is awesome! She is in it for the athletes and improving their game.

Coach Alli is an excellent instructor especially with kids. She is such great patience and the kids really learn alot from her. She is very accommodating with schedules / locations. Highly recommend her!!! :)

My son learned a lot from coach Alli Dynes observations and variety of drills. He feels that she is the one that can help him take his game to the next level. He is very eager to continue his training and wants to make sure that she remains his coach. He says she really knows how to break down the mechanics of the game and he now knows what he needs to work on between sessions in order to improve his game.

Knows the game and understands how to motivate and instruct!

Enjoyed training with coach Alli will train with her again.

We are on vacation in the Tampa area and we wanted to get some work in while we were here. Coach Alli fulfilled all of our needs as far as instruction, coaching ability and flexibility. We would definitely recommend her to anyone that wants to take their game to the next level. Thank you Coach Alli and when we visit again we will be in touch

Coach Allie provided my daughter with an assessment of her skills where she is as an athlete amongst her peers. Working on expanding her skills in her natural athlete positions. I am looking forward to continue training and see her growth in the upcoming HS season.

Megan has been training with Coach Alli for a month now and both Megan and I couldn't be happier. Coach Alli has worked directly and flexibly with Megan (a senior in HS) to schedule sessions.

During the workouts, Alli is quick to identify areas of potential improvement and can jump in as necessary to demonstrate what she wants and provide defensive or offensive pressure to give the "live game" feel to the workouts.

Every workout has been prepared ahead of time with speed, strength and agility components integrated directly into the skill workouts to keep the entire session free from repetitiveness.

We recommend coach Allison without hesitation!

Coach Alli was so much fun and I learned a lot of new things from her. After only 2 sessions, I could already tell that I could shoot better with what she taught me. I can't wait to keep on improving with her help!

Very professional. Wonderful rapport with my 8 yo daughter. My daughter was really motivated to try hard and had lots of fun. We're really looking forward to more sessions.

Great trainer that can accommodate all skill levels. My daughter had a couple of lessons with Coach Alli and was challenged in multiple ways. Loved the way she combines agility/strength training with general basketball skills training. Definitely recommend Coach Alli. My daughter will start training with her again immediately after High School session.

Coach Alli was wonderful and very patient.

Coach Alli is awesome to work with, my daughter cannot wait for the next session.

Coach Alli is AMAZING. My daughter learned so much in just one session. She can't wait for her next lesson this week! Coach Alli is very patient and uses the hour wisely. There is no standing around doing nothing. WELL worth it!!!

If you're looking for a trainer that will actually get you better, Coach Alli is your girl. After only 3 sessions, I feel more prepared for college basketball then I ever thought I could be. Unlike most trainers who just make up their sessions as they go, Coach Alli comes with a plan that will best help you achieve your goals. I have and will continue to recommend Coach Alli to everyone looking for a trainer. I wish I found her earlier!!

Coach Alli is a great coach! She is very professional, knowledgeable & fun to work with. She helped my girls become better athletes immediately! I highly recommend Alli to anyone wanting to improve any facet of their training!

Any basketball player that is in need of individual training should definitely contact Coach Allison Dynes! She came out to work with my varsity team and did a fantastic job. The players loved the workout and immediately asked if she could come back for more sessions. Coach Alli had great rapport with the girls, and had them working on important fundamental skills that led into bigger sequences. I highly recommend Coach Alli for individual and team workouts! You won’t be disappointed.
If you're looking for someone who is going to connect with you but also push you to become your best on an individual level, Allison is the coach for you. Her purpose, energy, and obsession with developing fundamental skills is what is lacking in our youth today. With her help, she will assist in developing these skills that will push you beyond your competition.
I have had the pleasure of working with Allison at the Duke Basketball Camp and have come to know her as a coach and a person. Her work ethic and dedication to helping youth grow on and off the court is parallel to none. She is motivating, inspiring, and uses her positive energy to help others achieve their goals. With a high moral compass and a great desire to impact young athletes there is no denying the many successes to come.
Coach Dynes is a very organized and motivating coach. Furthermore, she coaches with passion. The passion is shown by how much knowledge she possesses about the game. This passion makes coach Dynes a very positive person and the 1-1 sessions I had with coach during my freshmen season were inspiring and with her eyes for details, she helped me improve moves I needed in order to improve myself on the court.
Alli creates a positive learning atmosphere that allows players to develop the fundamentals and mindset necessary to advance to the next level. As a parent of one of her former players, I appreciate her rapport with her players and admire her knowledge of the game. Alli inspired my daugher, now a college basketball player, and her team to improve both individually as players and as teammates. She not only has a love for the game but also the ability to teach and motivate young players.
Coach Dynes was one of the most inspirational coaches I've ever had the pleasure of playing for. It wasn't the fact that I am a man and she is a woman, but rather the way she was able to organize, lead and inspire a group of men to play for a common goal. Her tenacity as a player and coach was only overshadowed by her love for the game. Forever my coach but also be a friend for life.
Coach Alli is such an inspiring coach that always gave me motivation to be better not only as a basketball player but as a person as well. She always pushed us to be better and play at the next level. I'd do anything to go back and play for her again!
Allison is a very relentless and tireless teacher. Her enthusiasm and desire to see young people grow through the game of basketball is contagious!
