More About Coach Andrew

I have coached and trained athletes in MN for the past 11 years. Work with beginners all the way up to college athletes. (3rd grade and up) During the winters, while continuing to do training sessions, I'm the Head Boys Varsity Coach at Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity in the west metro, and have coached at Waconia High School (boys) and Southwest Christian in Chaska (girls), and 8th grade travel teams for the Waconia Basketball Association. In the spring season, I also run an AAU program called Minnesota Swish out of the Twin Cities west metro.

Played basketball at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, MN after earning all-conference and all-area honors at Lakeview High School in Cottonwood, MN.

Each session can be tailored to an athlete's specific training wants and needs, but a typical session may include:

SHOOTING FORM-a focus on developing proper footwork, staying balanced and
squared up to the basket, and getting a perfect release, backspin, & follow through

BALL HANDLING-making quicker and stronger moves to create separation from
defenders. Developing confidence in attacking the basket using the weak-hand

FINISHING AROUND THE BASKET- using the body to shield off defenders,
absorb contact and still keep focus on the rim, using shot fakes to get defenders up
in the air and out of position. Many of these drills will include contact from a football
blocking shield to emulate a live defender

CREATING SCORING OPPORTUNITIES – using jab-steps, shot fakes, spin
moves, hop-backs and other offensive moves to create openings to get a shot off

QUICKNESS & VERTICAL JUMP- Plyometric exercises, drills to create a quick
first step & improve lateral movement, and explosive vertical leap training

(Other skills available at request: Post Moves, 1-on-1 Defense, Rebounding, and more)

Great coach. Helped my son a lot

Coach Andrew has been fantastic. After my second session I feel like I am a better player. I would highly recommend Coach Andrew to anyone looking to up their basketball game!

Coach Andrew has been great with my almost 10 year old son who is just starting out. He helps make him feel comfortable and confident. His shooting technique has improved a lot and we will continue to work with Coach Andrew.

Coach Andrew is a great coach! He asks the right questions to understand what you need and develops a training program specifically for you. He is friendly and encouraging. I would definitely recommend him for your basketball training needs.

Coach Andrew is a great coach! He really took the time to find out what was needed and focused on those areas. I think that my son has made great improvements in his technique and form in just two sessions. We look forward to see Coach Andrew again!

My daughter and I were very impressed with Coach Andrew after our last session! The drills my daughter ran with him definitely seemed like they would help her on the court. He pushed her hard to improve her skills. I liked how he provided some resistance against her shots. He was helpful in pointing out things to work on and encouraging her on the court!

My high school daughter really enjoyed her 1st session with Andrew. He was engaging and gave her very specific constructive feedback that will help her improve her skills in multiple areas. We are signed up for more with Andrew and would recommend him highly.

My daughter left the first session feeling more confident in her basketball skills. She enjoyed the drills that Coach Andrew did with her.
