More About Coach Andy

I grew up playing basketball until a knee injury ended my high school career. When my career ended, I felt like a piece was missing and wanted to continue to be around the game. I transitioned to coaching and while being an assistant coach, I fell in love with the player development aspect of the game. I have always loved helping others and love basketball, so it offered me an opportunity to blend the two together. Throughout my journey, I've been able to walk alongside many of my former coaches and learn from them. I am also currently being mentored by trainer Drew Hanlen who works with NBA players like Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum and Bradley Beal to name a few.

I have been coaching basketball for over 10 years. I enjoy working with players of all ages and levels. I have coached players from 5-55 years of age. I was a coach at the high school level for a couple years. I also coached a number of clubs teams and assisted in many basketball clinics and camps that have included players of all ages. My coaching philosophy is based on the principles that I learned as a player and coach. I utilize game like drills to produce game results. I enjoy seeing players improve as a player on the court, but more importantly as a person off the court.

Each session is different depending on a players goals and skill level. I will evaluate the player at our first session together by going through a series of drills. Afterwards we’ll discuss goals and figure out a plan moving forward.

Client Reviews

Anthony enjoyed working with Andy and has already improved.

Coach Andy,

Provide clear and concise instruction which made the session enjoyable for my 13 year old daughter. He also did an amazing job explaining the “why” for all the drills. So, she understood the importance of being flawless at the basics. Great job coach!!

Coach Andy is so nice !!
My son enjoyed the experience and worked hard.

Great experience with Andy, broke down what I needed to work on. Worked me out and was very patient. Will train with him again.

Coach Andy is great! He’s gone out of his way to watch multiple games for my daughter and in now helping her definitely score more points. Highly recommend! Thank you Coach Andy!

Coach Andy was great! I wanted a lesson on how to improve my shooting mechanics. I've played basketball casually for years, and immediately Coach Andy identified a few things I never would have known. I feel WAY more confident in my shot now. Also, Andy helped me perfect a move to get past defenders. Highly professional, and highly recommended.

Andy is great. Love the coaching sessions

(no details provided)

A great coach who focus on a lot of the details and habits of an athlete. By understanding the level of the athlete, Andy will points out a lot of the mistakes of the athlete and make lots of adjustments. I am a part of his student, and I am so glad to find him here, as he is the reason why I am on a new level now.

Coach Andy is great. He has lots of patience and understanding with our son. He initially will gauge your child's basketball skills and focus what needs to be developed. He explains the hows and whys clearly with our son to understand better. Coach Andy's skill in basketball is up to date with latest NBA moves. I just signed up another 5 sessions as our son personally requested for coach Andy.

My review of Coach Andy is that he an overall excellent coach. He helps out the player so much to try to improve on their certain skills. Even if you do something wrong, he will help you fix it, and make you try to improve. My experience from him coaching me has made me an overall better basketball player, through skill and intelligence.

(no details provided)

He has helped me improve my shot as well my overall game: shooting, dribbling, defense (primarily in these three areas thus far).

Coach Andy is a professional and a great basketball technician. He breaks down a player’s movements and arm/foot positions to prevent the player from repeating bad form. He’s also an enjoyable guy!

ANDY IS VERY PATIENT, HARD WORKING, AND UNDERSTANDS THE GAME VERY WELL. WE ARE VERY IMPRESSED WITH MY SON'S DEVELOPMENT. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH ANDY FOR MANY YEARS TO COME.

Coach Andy is a great coach! I took 10 sessions with him and feel that my confidence and knowledge have vastly improved, which has led to improvement in play.

Andy was always prepared for every session, but was also open to changing his plans based on my preferences. If you are motivated to learn, Andy makes it easy and fun. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a coach. Just don't forget to practice ;)

My 12-year-old son, Elijah, had a great first session with Coach Andy and was ready to get back on the court with him. Coach Andy provides one-on-one attention, and within the first training he corrected Elijah’s shooting form and is focused on helping him develop his skills long-term. Definitely going to stick with training with Coach Andy!

In one session he was able to identify my daughters strengths & weaknesses with a training plan to improve her game! Passionate about the game of basketball & our family looks forward to working with him.

Coach Andy trained my son and covered many key aspects of basketball skills. I can see that the boy improved in ball handling, foot works and shooting forms even after 1 session. We look forward to have more sessions with Coach Andy and will definitely recommend him to other young players.

Excellent instructor. I would highly recommend!

A great coach that knows an extensive amount of basketball drills! Also a great guy off the court who truly cares about his players.

Coach Andy is a very friendly, professional and timely coach who has done an incredible job with our 12 year old daughter. She has already shown significant improvement in every aspect of her basketball game in a short amount of time. He makes it convenient by working with your schedule and practice location. We highly recommend coach Andy to anyone looking for a personal basketball coach!

Awesome coach! Definitely knows his stuff and knows how to customize training programs for the specific individual. Will be working Andy again soon. Definitely recommend.

Coach Andy is a great coach. He has been coaching my son this summer, and he has been applying excellent techniques that have improved my son's overall fitness and his game significantly. Coach Andy is also very caring and patient, and he has great skills in keeping my son focused and energized throughout the entire session.

Coach Andy has been great for my son. He looks forward to his training sessions every week. His agility has improved and i am seeing the results when he plays for our club team. Great Job Andy!

Coach Andy had one session with my son yesterday. He was very helpful and knew how to connect. He listened and paid attention to my son's needs. We decided to continue working with him.

Excellent Training. Both of my teenage sons were very satisfied with all the Basketball skills learned. Andy, supported & taught many Basketball techniques making them feel very confident in their Tournament. I highly recommend Coach Andy.

I'm a college student and always wanted to take my game to the next step. So far I have taken 7 sessions with Coach Andy and I can say I have definitely improved. During my first session, Coach asked me what my weaknesses were and what I wanted to focus on, which for me were my left hand and footwork. We have done everything from simple pound dribbles to crossover finishing drills and even agility ladder drills for footwork. One session he made me do two ball crossover drills that I just couldn't do, so I asked if we could move on to another drill but he refused and said I had to complete this drill; by the end, I got the hang of it and realized not only is Coach Andy a great player himself (trust me, I've played him 1 on 1) he's a great coach too, he won't let you quit on yourself and will keep pushing you. We've worked together not only on my weaknesses but my game as a whole from dribbling to jump shot to defensive understanding. He is also really flexible and open to times, super chill and approachable, and has really great rates. You will not regret training with Coach Andy! I look forward to my future sessions.

Trained with coach Andy twice and I've learned so much from him already. Definitely going to be booking more sessions

Coach Andy was great! My son was very comfortable working with him, and enjoyed his lesson. My 10 year old got in the car, after, and said, "That was awesome!" We'll definitely be using him regularly.

Coach Andy has been great! Since he began working with Coach Andy late last year, my son has substantially improved in all phases of the game. My son's shooting has noticeably improved. Even more noticeable is the improvement in ball handling. Most noticeable of all is the improvement in court awareness and basketball IQ. Overall improvement has been steady and continuous.

I can't say enough great things about Coach Andy. He is very dedicated to teaching and helping others improve their game. The feedback Coach Andy provides after coaching sessions have been fantastic. It has allowed me to reinforce with my son lessons and skills he picked up in his training sessions.

I highly recommend Coach Andy. He has instilled in my son more than just improved basketball skills. Since working with Andy, my son has become increasingly more confident when playing with his organized basketball team. Moreover, my son is now extremely passionate about basketball, as evidenced by bouncing a basketball in the house just about every day. These additional positives brought by Coach Andy (on top of the improved basketball skills) are beyond what I expected when my son started working with Coach Andy, and I believe beyond what is typically expected of a coach.

My son just had his 1st session with Coach Andy today. I stayed to watch and my son was already getting better and learning. We are definitely going to book more sessions.

Coach Andy is awesome! He is very knowledgeable on technical skills, and he has been very patient with my son. We highly recommend him.

We are truly blessed to find Coach Andy - he taught our son who had no prior basketball experience all the fundamentals of the game. More importantly, he inspired our son to have confidence and our son has so much passion for basketball now many thanks to Coach Andy. He practices day and night and is excited every time we have a lesson with Coach Andy. We highly recommend him and will definitely continue to use him in the future.

Met once so far. Andy was great with our 9 year old son. We loved how he sent detailed feedback via email afterward. We are definitely plan to continue.

Coach Andy improved my 11 yr old son's confidence in his skills and he started showing results in his next game immediately after his first session. There is no doubt that Andy has elevated his potential and now he is applying everything on his new AAU team. Coach Andy demonstrated a keen understanding of the mechanics of basketball form and technique at a level that my son thoroughly understood and applied. I would highly recommend Andy if you are serious about improving your game.

Coach Andy is awesome! It was obvious from the moment he stepped on the court with my 9-year-old daughter that he knew basketball inside and out. He also has tremendous patience and is very encouraging. I wouldn't think twice before booking him again!
