More About Coach Anthony

I have about six years of experience Coaching at the youth and middle/high school level. I was a varsity head girls coach for one year and an assistant for 4 years. I've mainly worked with girls teams, but have also worked with boys as well. I was the Basketball Program Director for almost a year at the Boys&Girls Club for girls/boys ages 7-16.

I played two years of varsity basketball and also played one year of college basketball at the Division 3 level (MCLA). I was voted most improved player as a Senior in High School. I led the team in 3 point fg's made. At the college level, I was a shooting guard and led my team in 3 pt field goal percentage.

It always depends on the age of the athlete, but typically it would build around technical skills focusing on ball-handling and shooting while also working on some passing activities as well. It would be all about fundamentals of basketball especially for the younger players, but would always progress into more challenging activities. The session would start with a warm up that included the ball and some fitness as well. The session would progress from simple to complex and would try to focus on a few main topics in that session. All of the sessions would end with some type of game whether it's 1v1 or some kind of shooting game. Each session will involve many aspects of the game and I'm also able to cater to any specific things the player wants to work on.

Client Reviews

Anthony is working with my 6 year old son and provides the right amount of patience and encouragement. He has designed practices that are developmentally appropriate and fun!

Coach Anthony is knowledgeable and great to work with.

Coach Anthony is an excellent coach! After only two sessions I'm noticing my daughter's improvement. He actually takes the time and teaches the correct way something is supposed to be done. It doesn't matter how many times the child might get it wrong, he has the patience to work with them and challenge them until they get it right. My daughter is having fun while building up her skills and confidence. I am super excited and can't wait for our next session! Thanks coach Anthony!

We lined our daughter up with private sessions with Coach Anthony. So far, we have had two sessions and my daughter is extremely happy and already seeing and feeling the results. She looks forward to her training sessions even though he works her hard. I would recommend Coach Anthony to anyone looking to help their child get more experience and definitely more touches on the ball. She is also building her confidence and walks off the field after a session very happy.

I met Coach Anthony at a high school soccer clinic. Impressed by his coaching style, I asked him if he could coach my skillful 14-year old son Jason. Fortunately, since then, he was able to coach Jason out of his busy schedule. He not only further improves Jason’s strength, but also works on Jason’s weakness to make him a more versatile and successful player. We are totally happy that Coach Anthony can find time to coach Jason, and are looking forward to developing Jason with him for years to come. Thank you!

Nice to work with!

In the time that my daughter has worked with Anthony she has learned many different things. She has improved on many levels. Anthony is very thorough with his sessions, he is extremely informative and honest. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a private session.

He is a fun, friendly and funny coach, kids seem to listen to him well, and enjoy practicing. Practices seem to be fun and games; unfortunately that’s all it is: if you are looking for serious training, and trying to get ready for a specific event I would suggest looking elsewhere. He was offering 10 sessions for $200 package, and for 20 bucks a session it would have been well worth it, if he was available. I think we were only able to complete 10 out of 20 sessions before 1 year time limit ran out. He had cancelled way too many in the last minute and rarely was available on times which he had listed on his profile in CU. Later he contacted me with a really good offer: 3group session and 3 individual sessions at nominal fee. So, we signed up with him 2nd time. He ran 3 group sessions, and I think he wrote them up as individuals, he was trying to reschedule the individual session yet again, so I requested a refund. I only got refunded for the price of Group sessions instead of the individual ones. Difference was not too significant, so it is not worth pursuing, but it just felt raw

Please do not let this review reflect in any way on CoachUp they have been super responsive, processed the refund fast and replied to my inquiries even on Sundays.

We are very happy with the training that Coach Anthony has worked on with our daughter. We have noticed that her foot skills and ball striking skills have improved a lot. Our daughter looks forward to every session with Coach Anthony! He works her very hard while providing a positive and fun training session!

Anthony is great at explaining techniques along with the reason on why to do them in certain ways. He works within your personal limits and encourages you to challenge yourself to continue to make progress with foot skills and fitness.

Coach Anthony was great. Work on different drills and very patient. Great sense of humor. Highly recommend him.

We are very happy with Coach Anthony and plan to continue coaching with him. From our very first session our son was challenged to improve his footwork and shooting skills. Coach Anthony is great at communicating in a positive, empowering way. I highly recommend him as a personal coach!

So far, we Coach Anthony is doing a great job. My daughter enjoys the session, he makes it fun to learn.

(no details provided)

We are extremely pleased with how our sessions are going. After 3 sessions I see my daughter learning some new skills and starting to break some bad habits. My daughter respects and likes Coach Anthony which is critical to her training. He is easy to understand, and teaches by showing not excessively talking which bores kids to death. We already signed up for another five sessions!!!

Anthony Coski is an excellent coach. I saw improvement in my daughter's game after 1 coaching session. That's impressive. Not many people can teach so the student takes it with them. She's always practicing beating her opponent... even by herself! Great foot skill drills... And The Work Was Fun!

Our session with coach Anthony was very good! So far we have had good experience with him. We have already purchased additional packages to use in the future.

Coach Anthony is great! Within the first session I felt comfortable and confident in what I was doing. He covered a lot of material in only an hour but everything was well thought out and clear. I'm looking forward to more sessions! -Maggie

Coach Anthony is awesome. I have two girls ages 10 and 12 and both have improved their soccer skills. My girls have developed skills/moves that they now use in their games. Coach Anthony is flexible with his schedule as well. He makes it fun, I highly recommend Coach Anthony.

Coach Anthony has been a top notch coach and he brings a true 'positive' passion to the game. His check the ego at the door is refreshing and in the true sportsman ethos. He has technically advanced my daughter leaps and bounds and has built up her confidence and knowledge of the game. Having dealt with many coaches across youth soccer, premier soccer and more I would highly recommend Coach Anthony. 5 STARS !

Anthony is a great soccer coach! He has a unique ability to push a player past their comfort zone yet keeping it fun and interesting. My daughter feels challenged but not overwhelmed and looks forward to every session. Also, Anthony has been very patient with her as she gets frustrated very easily. He uses humor and positive reinforcement to push her past her frustration. She has shown great improvement in just a few sessions. I would highly recommend Anthony as a soccer coach!

Coach Anthony is an amazing coach! My daughter is 13 and was very apprehensive because of past basketball coaching experiences. After the first session she was relieved and showed improvement and confidence on the court. Coach Anthony is always positive and the sessions are not only informative, he makes them fun. My daughter is eager and excited to go to every basketball session. Coach has the ability to identify the areas that need work and easily addresses them. He really has a gift for connecting with athletes and drawing the best out of them. My daughter can't stop talking about how much more she has learned about the game of basketball and how Coach Anthony makes fundamentals easy and achievable. Coach Anthony not only coaches he cares about his client's success. He is a patient, kind and supportive coach. I would recommend Coach Anthony to anyone.

I wanted my daughter to relax and just have fun playing soccer while at the same time working on her skills and speed. Anthony has been great with my daughter and her friend. They have a great time and look forward to going to the lessons. Our Spring season starts this weekend and I'm looking forward to seeing what they have been working on. I would highly recommend Anthony!

Coach Anthony is perfect , my son had a good first session. He is kind, patient and very nice. My son learned technical skills from him. Coach Anthony has many experience in teaching and improving the skill. We are looking forward to the next session.

My daughter had a great first session with coach Anthony. She is 8 and was kind of nervous at first. After about 5 mins she was settled in because of Anthony. He's very knowledgeable and is very very good with making his instructions clear!!

Anthony immediately identified areas of weakness in my daughter's foot skills and striking technique. He addressed them in a positive way, pushing her outside of her comfort zone while still being very encouraging and supportive. Her technique has noticeably improved after only 2 sessions. He provides verbal and written feedback, and is very responsive via e-mail or text. I feel confident that his training will make her a stronger all-around player. He works her hard during the sessions, but she is really enjoying it!

Anthony has been a positive, aggressive and intense coach. With his additional training my daughter was able to reach her goal to make All-star and All-State her freshman year. For any player looking to increase their skills, he will help you get to the next level. He has also trained my son. His improvements are increased foot speed and a better first touch.

Coach Anthony was awesome, the girls connected with him and even thou the group was diverse in skills he was able to keep the drills and games challenging for all and i believe everyone learned something, myself and the other parents included.

After reading all of Anthony's great reviews on coach up we decided to book our first session. Anthony was quick to respond with answers to all of my questions and schedule our first session. After meeting with a him for the our first session my daughter felt very comfortable with Anthony and his training technique. Since then we have booked more training sessions with him and as winter is approaching he has also arraigned an indoor facility for future winter training. If you're searching for a trainer I would start with Anthony.

Coach Anthony is amazing! My son learned more in one session with Coach Anthony than in 4 years of spring and fall town soccer, and the difference in his confidence and technical skill increases with every session. He improves in leaps and bounds. His town coach has named him most improved player on the team and is giving him well deserved praise at every practice and every game. Coach Anthony has a way with kids that can't be explained, he builds rapport and trust quickly and easily, and demonstrates skills in a way that kids can understand and repeat. He gives praise and explains where there is room for improvement in such a way where the child is always encouraged to do better and keep trying to get it right. For the first time my son is inspired and motivated to practice constantly and is really enjoying the game. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Coach Anthony is fantastic. He is patient, kind, and funny, and has a way with kids. He earns their trust quickly, and puts them at ease. Coach sets the bar high and my son reaches to meet the goals consistently. My son is constantly inspired to do better and learn new skills. The one on one sessions have given him the confidence he needs to excel.

Coach Anthony is a really kind and patient coach. He really helped with various techniques even after only a few sessions. Look forward to working with him some more!

Coach Anthony was great, he helped with all aspects of basketball. He really honed in on the fundamentals of the game.

Coach Anthony is amazing. He is very patient and given feedback after every session. My son is 8 years and the coach keeps him occupied and makes the session very enjoyable and at then same time teaches him techniques of the game. Thanks coach!!

I can already see a huge improvement in their skills. They get very excited to see Anthony, he makes it super fun for them. He is very flexible with his schedule. I highly recommend coach Anthony!

Coach Anthony is a wonderful coach with good knowledge of the sport. He takes time to go over the basics and help give my son the confidence of becoming a better player. Wish we had more free time to work with more.

Coach Anthony conducted a great session. After first session my daughter was so happy about soccer again and was regaining her confidence. Looking forward to the next session.

Coach Anthony was great! He worked on fast feet drills, trapping, and shooting techniques. The session was fun and moved quickly. My son truly enjoyed it and is looking forward to completing more challenging sessions and improving his technical skill! We also booked a group session for my two younger boys and they also loved it. Anthony continued to work on footwork and shooting, while also helping my son with his goal kicks, as he is a goalkeeper.

Anthony has been great to work with. We are working with him to get some one on one training for our child focusing on some specific skills development. He has been flexible, professional and punctual and we look forward to continuing to work with him.

Coach Anthony is just what my daughter needed to strengthen her skills and build her confidence. She really enjoys his individual attention and positive energy. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Coach Anthony was an excellent coach. He helped improve my touches in a short amount of time. He raised my confidence level on the field. He was a fun coach but didn't waste anytime. He's very personable. I highly recommend Coach Anthony.

We had a good session with Anthony today, and my son liked it and he improved a lot, he is looking forward for his classes.

Anthony has been able to identify bad habits and clearly communicate how my daughter can improve her soccer skills. She has enjoyed his coaching sessions immensely and looks forward to training with him.

My kids really enjoyed Anthony and his skills training. He taught them things in one hour they haven't learned in years of playing in soccer practice/games

We couldn't be happier with the positive experience our daughter had during her sessions with Coach Anthony. His knowledge of the game and his ability to relate to the kids created a fun environment for learning new skills and sharpening certain soccer skills that needed a little tweeking. We recommend training with Coach Anthony and will certainly continue to train with him in the future.

Anthony has done a great job identifying Ali's areas of strengths and areas to improve. In just a short time, she feels more confident and is reporting improvements. He makes it fun and my daughter has enjoyed her training sessions. Really happy that she has him for training!

After a few sessions with Coach Anthony, my son was in mid season form. Sessions were well thought out and conducted with a great pace. Instruction was clear and to the point, and always delivered with encouragement. Coach Anthony is fantastic!

Coach Anthony has done a great job working with my daughter. He is enthusiastic and positive! His focus on skills has given my daughter more confidence with the ball.

He is a great communicator and knows the sport of soccer well. We are thrilled to work with him.

Anthony really spends a lot of time working the skills my daughter needs for the position that she plays. She's improved a great deal and enjoys the skills and challenges put out by Anthony.

Coach Anthony is a great coach. He is friendly, compassionate and supportive while showcasing a clear understanding of the sport of soccer and the various positions. My daughter felt comfortable with him almost immediately and was intuitive to her skill level, her insecurities and recommendations on technique. I highly recommend Coach Anthony, and, in fact, plan to book more session with him in the near future.

I am glad that I found a good coach that has the personal skills and touch to teach because that is a special combination. Coach Anthony has discover some corrections that my son has to make to his game in order to improve his game since as my son is just starting playing. I notice some drills that I have never seen before and it looks that there is more coming. Coach Anthony has the professional skills to help my son improve and I am very satisfied with our first session and my son also like it.
Another thing that I like is that he sent us a complete evaluation right after the session showing me that he is committed to my son and also to his profession.
We has plans to do as more sessions as I can to give my son all the tools he needs to develop his game and enjoy the game of basketball.

Coach Anthony did a great job analyzing my daughter's strengths and weaknesses right away, and worked well in improving her techniques. I notice a vast improvement in her confidence and ability after only 1 session!

Kelsey really enjoyed her first training session with Anthony and is looking forward to working towards their goals!

Having witnessed the first session between Coach Anthony and my son, I can tell there will be quite a difference in my son's skill set after a few sessions. I myself learned quite a few things and appreciated Coach Anthony's knowledge, demeanor and constructive criticism (not that he criticized but did point out what my son needed to work on in a very positive way). Just wish I had found him years ago to work with us! Looking forward to seeing where we're at after a few more sessions.

Really good first session. I was able to work hard, have some fun, and focus on improving some of my weak spots. Anthony did a great job adjusting to my skill level, giving feedback, and keeping the pace of the session fast.

I was very happy with Coach Anthony. He was very positive and had what seemed like an endless amount drills to improve all my daughters skills. We plan on booking more lessons immediately and recommend Coach Anthony to all skill levels.
Brian C

Coach Anthony is great! After only just one session I felt more experienced and more confident about my level. He is kind, patient and easy to work with. Training with him is very exciting. I recommend Coach Anthony to everyone! :)

Coach Anthony wasted no time evaluating and correcting my sons techniques. He also gave him new drills to work on that will improve his skills. My 13 year old son felt comfortable and was happy to work with coach Anthony. That is most important. We will be signing up for more lessons!

Coach Anthony was great my son was so excited about the things th=y went over. He feels he has already learned some new moves.

Coach Anthony is a great coach! After just one lesson my daughter is already getting better can't wait to see where she's at after the 10.

Coach Anthony is very easy to work with. He makes sessions fun while making me improve my skills. I think working with Coach Anthony will help me improve my foot skills and my first touch. I also feel my level of play will be elevated by improving each aspect of my game. I look forward to my next session!

From Emily's parent: as she progresses through training with Anthony, I am so impressed with how he has the ability to pick up specific details of her game that need improvement. He shows her what she is doing wrong and he works with her to correct it. He doesn't waste time going through the motions of mastered skills. I am very impressed with his training and as a plus he is quite easy to work with.

It's a great experience to work out with coach Anthony. I'm still looking forward to get more details about improving shooting.

Coach Anthony did a nice job training my 12 year old. My son got many touches with the various drills that he did and the coach made it fun for my son to continue working. I like that Coach Anthony gave good input on the things my son needs to improve on and kept him motivated about his potential to get better. My son is looking forward to the next session.

Coach Anthony surpassed all of my expectations. After just 1 session, he evaluated and worked on some of my sons skills. He was easy to talk to and made my son very comfortable while being coached. I have already noticed a difference in my sons skills. I am looking forward to our remaining sessions. Great job Coach Anthony.

My name is Jack Michaels. I am a Junior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I have known Anthony as a basketball coach for three years and as a close acquaintance for many years. Before college I played a variety of sports including football, basketball, soccer, and lacrosse. I was fortunate enough to be a part of many different kinds of teams – winning and losing. I was even given the opportunity to play football at the collegiate level at Sacred Heart University. Having played these many different sports and been a part of many different teams I have met many coaches. And I know what a good coach can do for an athlete. Anthony is one of the best coaches I have ever met. He demonstrates the characteristics of a good person and leader, he inspired our basketball team far beyond just what we learned on the basketball court. Coach was always on time, prepared, and filled with positive energy. He got the most out of us every practice while still keeping us engaged and focused. He was never just concerned with winning, although we were very successful. He was concerned with the way we were developing as people and competitors. Through the game of basketball and Coach's mentorship, my teammates and I have become better and more mature people.
