More About Coach Anthony

I've been a part of basketball my entire life. It's a sport where I feel it's best taught by individuals who care more about life values than actually just dribbling the basketball. That's who I am. I'm a local kid who graduated from Normandy Senior High School where I recieved my diploma. Then had the opportunity to continue my basketball dreams by getting a full basketball scholarship to the University of Northern Iowa where I played 5 years and recieved my degree while doing so in Family Services. While attending the University just as a basketball player I spent many hours in the gym working on my craft and developing great habits. Spent the summer running basketball camps as an assistant camp director at Northern Iowa but I was also hands on with the kids that attending our camps. After my journey in college I got the opportunity to further my career in professional basketball where I played in Venezuela and also repesectively. I'm very dedicated and a hard worker that only expect excellence in the gym and off it and if you want to learn the values of becoming the best person you can be I'm the coach for you. The ages I normally deal with where from as little as 3rd grad until 12th

In high school I was MVP in the Surburban East my senior year. I ended my career as the 2nd leader scoring in Normandy history as only completed 3years on varsity not 4. I was an average 80% free-throw shooter 60% field goals and 48% from three i averaged 22.3 pts per game 5rebs 3asts in high school. I was the primary scorer on the team although we had other great players on our team. I have the experience in knowing what moves need to be made when your looking to score and I forgot to mention I was an lockdown defender and still is. With all the points that can be scored its nothing without the fundamentals of defense. When I arrived at The University of Northern Iowa I redshirted my first year. And the rest is history I was part of the historical run to the sweet sixteen by knocking off then ranked #1 in the country and also #1 ranked overall in the tournament beat them in a great game. I was part of back to back MVC championships and regular season titles. I was named most valuable player in the south padre inivitaional tournament and also a member of first team all tournament in the Vegas Classsic. I've been named to the most improved player, all bench team 2nd team all MVC and ended top ten on the scoring list at UNI

A client can expect to be worked to the max each and every day in the gym. In the beginning of training I always like to sit down with a player and get an understanding of what type of player they want to become and we go from there. All I want and ask for is to come in the gym ready to work and get after it, that's the only way to get better. I like to work on our footwork, the better the footwork the better your moves can be and also by being quicker your able to get around the court and your defender and any given time. At any workout there also has to be cardio involve and never feel like you can't get through because I will be right there with you motivated you. You can expect to work on your ball handling skills with both hands with different drills I picked up along my career we will work on our shooting making sure our mechanics are where they need to be to perform the perfect jump shot.

Client Reviews

Coach A.J. is a great coach. He is very knowledgeable about guard play which is what we needed. He was professional and used the time we had wisely.

First session with Coach AJ was well worth the money. My daughter was excited to learn some new techniques right away that she will definitely be able to use and she said she already felt more confident.

Coach Anthony is a great coach and motivator. My son has shown improvement in his ballhandling and shooting after just two sessions. He has also gained confidence in his game. He greatly looks forward to his sessions with Coach AJ.

What I have received in feedback more than just teaching the game of basketball, but it's my motivational skills that help builds character and work ethic. The easiest part is getting better on the basketball court, but it's how you handle yourself off the court. That separates you from the rest.
