More About Coach Andre'

I have trained many athletes from kids in elementary school to college players around the Chicago area. I have coached and helped train athletes at every level from elementary school to college just helping athletes accomplish their goals of developing skills and technique that will make them a successful basketball player. I work with all ages 5- up and have worked with the Full Package Athletics program based in the Chicago area under NBA skills trainer Steve Pratt and numerous other high school programs in the area. I graduated from Missouri Valley College in May 2014 with a bachelor's degree in sports management and currently pursuing my master's degree in sport and performance psychology.

I played high school basketball on an Athletic scholarship at De La Salle Institute in Chicago where I started varsity since being a sophomore and earned honorable mention all state my sophomore and senior year and was All Chicago Catholic league for three years. I played against the best competition in Chicago with going against professional athletes like Derrick Rose of the New York Knicks, Patrick Beverley of the Houston Rockets, Javale McGee of the Golden State Warriors , and Evan Turner of the Portland Trail Blazers just to name a few. I sat out after I graduated high school with a shoulder injury which caused me to miss a year and a half of playing basketball at a high level. I continued my career at a junior college called Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, IL. At Oakton, I played for current NBA skills trainer Steve Pratt who runs Full Package Athletics which is a nationally recognized program for player development and team leadership. After Oakton I finished off my career playing for Missouri Valley College, which is an NAIA Division 1 college. I have decided to pursue a career in helping student- athletes develop their game and achieve their goals using my knowledge and experience of the game of basketball and giving back to the community.

Athletes can expect to go through intense basketball drills that will help build mental toughness while developing proper basketball skills and IQ at a fast pace. I believe in giving maximum effort for maximum results, and everything that we do will be at game speed while mocking game like situations.Athletes will learn how to enhance their basketball skills and knowledge in a professional manner through deliberate practice ,focused thinking and repetitive training with the use of a variety of drills that will help enhance the athlete's muscles memory. This will build great attitude, demeanor and character through work ethic and give the athlete the proper basketball knowledge that it takes to maximize their potential and peak performance. I focus on the basics of shooting, ball handling, and defense as a core of the session to help develop these skills to be able to compete against anybody at a high level. The session will also include drills that specialize in developing speed, agility, core power and endurance so the athletes will be physically and mentally prepared to endure playing competitive basketball at a high level for the long term. Since I'm working on my master's degree to become a certified Sports and Performance Psychologist my entire training curriculum is based off of building muscles memory through repetitive training! so that the skills and basketball IQ that I teach will be instilled and retained to the athlete for their long term career. I will help build the Athlete's mindset for peak performance with some mental training techniques such as goal setting, visualization, imagery and positive self talk.

I have had the pleasure of using Coach Andre on a few occasions for my 14yr old son & am very impressed with his knowledge & work ethic. He devised a plan suited to my son’s needs & pushed to him to succeed while encouraging him at the same time. Very happy with Coach Andre,as is my son.

Coach Andre’ was very nice! He was very patient with my 10 year old son and showed him some great shooting techniques. He also had a one-on-one conversation with him about how to mentally strategize before a game. My son loved him & has asked me everyday when he’ll get to train with him again. Thanks Andre’!

Coach Andre was great with his training techniques. My son took to him right away and immediately asked for more training on the 1st day. I'm confident with little or more sessions any child would progress from his superb skills. He definitely knows his stuff!! Thanks Coach Andre! My son says thank you!

Coach Andre did a fantastic job coaching my 10 year opd son!
He is a great coach and my son learned so much his first session!

My son's confidence is much stronger with only one session so i cant wait unril he goes to the next one!
Coach Andre gets two thumbs up!

Andre did a great job. He was very patient and good working with my son. He showed him a lot in his 1st lesson that already helped him with his mechanics. We will definitely be working more with him.

So far so good! I have never seen my son make so many baskets! Look forward to continuing our work with him! Thanks Coach!!!

Wow!! Coach Andre is amazing! Very patient and extremely knowledgeable. It is hard to determine a coach based on a profile, but I have to say I definitely picked the right coach for Jason. Coach Andre definitely knows his stuff. We booked 10 sessions and it is definitely worth it.

Coach Andre was a great coach. He did an excellent job with my nephew. He was extremely patient and helped work on the mechanics of his shot. We'll be signing up for more sessions to continue the development.

Coach Andre was outstanding. My son has had other coaches before but he really likes this coach. He says he taught him things that no other coach has taught him before. He not only taught the physical side but also the mental as well. I would highly recommend using him.

After two sessions with coach Andre, I already see the improvement in my son's game. I have been coaching basketball for years, but Coach Andre's skills and knowledge are well beyond mine. Andre is professional, patient, courteous, and pleasant. He has well planned lessons that cover all aspects of the game. This experience far exceeded my expectations. You will not be disappointed.

If any parent out there is trying to decide whether to invest the time & the money to get a personal trainer for your young athlete, do not hesitate to take the chance. Coach Andre's attention to what skills my daughter needs to work on as she approaches high school athletics makes the investment in time and money worth it. Bring an extra water bottle for them because it will not be an easy session. The personal training goes way beyond what travel leagues will teach (not an earth-shattering statement).

Awesome. I saw an instant improvement in my son's jumpshot. Andre' expressed to me he saw some talent in my son and he's very coachable and he looks forward to working with him. Our time got cut short, but he worked with me and I'll definitely be booking more appointments sooner rather than later. Thanks

He is a great coach for my son. My son has a goal to reach the NBA and Coach Andre' gives him more hope and he's already talking about remembering the things his coach is doing for him. I'd recommend him to anyone's child who wants to become successful

Many thanks and appreciation to Coach Andre'

Coach Andre is great. After one session I learned the 4 techniques of shooting. No other coach had shown me before. Definitely will book more sessions and I will will recommend him to my friends.

Good shooting fundamentals and technique!

Had multiple sessions with Dre. Completely changed the way I shoot the ball. Am now a much better shooter.

Coach Andre is very skilled! He is a great coach and helps you push through fatigue and drills. He has taught me a lot on my first session and I will definitely book more sessions with him! Very patient and understanding!

Coach Andre' was excellent! Very professional to deal with and gave several locations to accomodate us. My son liked him very much and was very comfortable with him. I highly recommend him for a coaching session.

Coach Andre' is doing g a great job so far my daughter says she really enjoys worki b g with him. She says she can't wait to continue working with him and getting the skills she needs.

Coach Andre is a great coach for my son. He is patient and has great understanding of the game. He teaches techniques that you will use in basketball games.

My son, and his friend, really like Coach Andre'. He has excellent teaching skills along with tons of support. He traveled all the way to the northwest side, when he lives on the far Southside! That's commitment to a job he loves. I would recommend him to those who have young boys, or girls, who want to learn from a gentleman who knows what he's doing and loves his profession!

Thank you Coach Andre for always pushing me to do my best and to never give up! Because of you I now have improved so much in every part of my game especially shooting! I just love my new shot mechanics all from working with you and you breaking shooting down so simple thank you for improving my game coach!
Because of Coach Andre' I went from getting cut from my 8th grade basketball team last year to playing varsity my freshmen year in high school this year all because of the skills, mindset and basketball IQ he has taught me and showed me how to work hard all the time! I can't thank Coach Andre' enough this is the one of the best trainers/coaches in America and the best I have personally ever worked with and he has helped change my life because he cares about his players and their careers! thank you so much Coach Andre' I never thought I could get this good!
2/13/17 I was very pleased with coach Andre'. He was very polite and patient with my son. My son took to him very easily which is odd for my son. I felt like it was easy for my son to learn from coach Andre' because he knew how to work well with kids. Thanks!
I started playing basketball at 18 as an experiment a close friend of mine had a and if I gave 100% I'd have Professional grade basketball knowledge my skill will show through my efforts the sports psychology seemed legit so I bought in and it paid we worked 10 hours a day every day for 30 days the start to my 10,000 hours of practice journey I watched myself go from not being able to dribble or lay up with my left hand to an euro step with a reverse left hand lay up it was incredible my ability to make reads and choose the correct one and the muscle memory is real ten years later I still have the same shooting form still the same I'm proud to be apart of AIE I'm a true believer.
