More About Coach Brandon

I've been coaching and doing individual and group training for more than seven years. I have had the opportunity to train athletes at several levels over this time, including toddlers, middle school, and high school. I am currently the Mesa Unified School District's head JV basketball coach and assistant varsity basketball coach. I've finished the NFHS Coach Certification Program's level one requirements and am an Accredited Interscholastic Coach. I have had positions with Jump Bunch, Jump Athletics, and Skyhawks. I continue to volunteer to coach with i9 Sports when my schedule permits. Usually, I train students who are in grades K-12.

Californian who played Varsity basketball at Valley View High School . Took part in a variety of summer leagues and camps during middle and high school.

You can anticipate a fast-paced, high-energy setting designed to condition your athlete while they improve their skills when booking a session with me. The goal will be to help the athlete strengthen their fundamentals so they can have a more versatile skill set. I enjoy devoting a fair amount of time to shooting, footwork, ball handling, and defense. I have an evaluation exercise called "Beat the Pro" that will assist in identifying some of the skills you might need to work on honing if you're unsure of they are. I would usually start our sessions with some ball handling exercises to get warmed up. The first drill would focus on the ability that we believe the athlete needs to improve on the most, if no assessment was required. We would keep moving into drills to focus on our areas for development. There will be water breaks every ten to fifteen minutes during each drill. A breakdown of a one-hour session would resemble this: Warm-ups (10 min), Offense (15 min), Break, Footwork (15 min), Break, and Shooting (15 min).

Best basketball coach in az

Coach Brandon was a great teacher, we could not have been more pleased with our experience. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He really helped my son focus on fundamentals and develop core skillsets that he was lacking in a really short period of time. Coach Brandon has a great teaching style, lots of positive reinforcement and encouragement while keeping it real, it was obvious that Coach Brandon loves what he does and is invested in making sure the kids he mentors improve from week to week.

Coach Brandon has been amazing with my son. He does such a good job making adjustments and giving back feedback while motivating at the same time. My son's confidence in his game is definitely showing since he can see almost immediate improvement with the tips and help that Coach has given him. We are so happy to have found him and look forward to continuing to work with him.

Coach Brandon is an excellent coach. His training and techniques are amazing. Recommend to anyone looking for a coach to help with becoming better.

We just started some sessions with Coach Brandon. He was able to quickly assess my son’s existing skills and went through some really useful drills with him. My son has been really excited since the first session and already claims to be improving due to the at home practice techniques suggested by Coach Brandon. He is looking forward to working with the coach to further his skills.

My daughter had a session with Coach Brandon. He is really good! Very helpful and worked on several needed skills in a repetitive format that helped her work on the areas she was challenged with.

I am very impressed by how much he taught my son in just one hour.
I am looking forward to many more sessions.

Brandon was great! We did our first training and my son loved it... so we're signing up for more now!

Coach was awesome and my son had a great session with him. He felt very inspired by the training he received with various skills it has been practicing every day since with more vigor and focus! We really appreciated his professionalism and dedication to the athlete in the sport.

Great session with Coach Robinson. So easy to work with. Great communication setting up our first session and we will be scheduling more. My son really enjoyed working with him. Great energy and very positive. My son left with exercises and drills to work on for the next week and he can’t wait for his next session with Coach Robinson. My son talked about it the whole ride home.

Coach Brandon was easy to schedule with and my son enjoyed his coaching style. They focused on the basics and footwork. Coach Brandon even followed up with a reminder of what to practice the rest of the week 👍

Coach Brandon really helped my son start with the basics. My son just started to get into basketball and I wanted to get him some great basic skills and build from there. Coach gave my son many great tips to practice with in between sessions.

I signed up my 10 year old son Wesley for lessons with Brandon a couple of weeks ago. We’ve had two sessions so far and they have been great. Wesley had virtually no basketball skills, so we are starting with the basics. Brandon is a great instructor and he connected really well with Wesley, who has had quite a lack of confidence. Brandon is able to encourage him while also pushing him to improve. We are looking forward to more sessions to get my son the skills and confidence he needs to be successful in the upcoming basketball season. Thanks Coach Brandon!

Coach Robinson was excellent with my son during their first session! Coach Robinson pushed my son to learn the proper way to practice key skills to become a better ball player. Thanks Coach Robinson!

Great practice, coach was very patient and had lots of positive reinforcements on every drill. My kid learned a lot!

What can I say...in just 60 minutes Coach Brandon connected with my son, who is newer to basketball. The skills they worked on were immediately put to use in his game today. He had a little more confidence in his ability and used what he learned.
Looking forward to ongoing training with Coach Brandon to continue to improve his game!

very happy with the experience in my son's first session, thank you for your effort and patience coach to teach him.

We just had our first session with Coach Robinson and my son loved it! The Coach was able to quickly go through some drills to understand my son’s current skill level and then tailor the remaining time to drills and feedback specifically for him. This was our first time doing private coaching so we didn’t know what to expect but both my son and I were very impressed with Coach Robinson (very knowledgeable and great with kids)! Looking forward to our future sessions!

Coach Brandon was awesome. My son really liked working with him and took direction from him well. About halfway through my sessions I realized that he was posting practice updates for us with detailed notes on how to improve both at home and at the next practice. I loved the motivational remarks and pictures he provided. Will definitely book with him again soon!

After my 12 year old's first session, he was really excited to train more. He said he already learned a lot & can't wait to practice & learn more! I'm so very grateful for Coach Brandon

My Son had a session with Coach Brandon. My son enjoyed the session. Coach Brandon was great. Provided lots of positive feedback and encouragement which is great when working kids. He kept my son's attention and enthusiasm up through the 1hr session and there was never a dull moment. I would highly recommend coach Brandon.

A really good coach, always encourages you, can’t wait to train with him again.

My family and I recently moved from Chicago and was looking for an elite trainer for my son. After connecting with Brandon I knew right away that he was the coach for us. Brandon is very patient, has amazing communication skills and his methods are tried and tested. After just one session I could already see improvement in my sons shot form and overall confidence. Brandon definitely has all the tools you need to get to the next level. I look forward to our continued sessions, although what he’s done so far is more than enough to catapult my son to new levels.

Coach Brandon is a great coach! I would recommend him to anyone trying to improve their game.

Very patience and pays attention to detail. Knows what and how to teach for improvement

Really enjoyed my first session, will be scheduling future sessions for sure. I can already notice a big improvement and this was the first time I've done formal basketball training. He explains everything well and his tips gave me a noticeable improvement in ball handling and shooting. 5/5 highly recommend Brandon!

Coach Brandon did an amazing job working with my son. He was very knowledgeable, professional, & communicated effectively. I plan on booking more sessions with Coach Brandon. Thanks Coach

Excellent coach

Coach Brandon has helped my son so much. He knows a lot about basketball and is really good at coming up with drills that are helpful and simple enough for my son to be able to practice in between sessions. He makes it really fun and my son looks forward to his basketball sessions with coach Brandon.

Awesome work by Brandon. He was quickly able to find the areas that my son needed to work on and focused on them. Look forward to having more sessions with Brandon.

Coach Brandon is awesome. My 12 year old has been playing for a few years in leagues while we lived in CA but took a year off due to Covid. He’s is now getting back into the game after our move to the Valley but has been struggling a little on his current team. Coach Brandon is helping him sharpen his skills and giving him great advice. My son really enjoyed Brandon and his professionalism. You can tell he’s attentive and enjoys the game, his positive attitude is really great. We look forward to more sessions with him!

Coach B is a great fit for my son. My son feels he made a friend as well as a coach/mentor. The skills he learns will help him lifelong! I believe that Coaching requires a lot of patience as well as being supportive.
Coach B has those skills an more!
We value you Coach B.

Coach Brandon has been working with our son for a couple of months now and we have no plans of stopping anytime soon. Coach Brandon is quick to identify areas which need improvement. He covers everything dribbling, foot work, passing, rebounding, offense and defense. He also breaks things down with body mechanics so our son can take charge on the court. Highly recommend Coach Brandon!

Coach Brandon was a great coach. He was nice and patient with my 11 year old son and at the same time his training got my son more excited about playing basketball. I would highly recommend him

My 13 year old son learned a lot in the first one hour session. He worked on foot work and passing. Excellent experience looking forward to next week. Coach Brandon took the time to explain the drills and gave him some ideas for practicing at home.
Traci from Scottsdale Arizona.

We were in town from out of state and wanted our 8th daughter to get some specific training during 4 sessions in 4 days. Brandon was very accommodating to help arrange for that. Brandon was able to help our daughter with her specific needs. He is skilled at what he does along with being very patient and positive with players. My daughter looked forward each day to her training session. If we are in town for a few days in the near future, we plan on contacting Brandon again.

Coach Brandon is a great coach! He is exactly what we were looking for and what Jaxon (my 14 yr old son) was needing. After one session Jaxon felt like he had improved and he knew exactly what he should work on to become a better basketball player. We have scheduled more sessions with Coach Brandon. He is top notch. We would recommend him to anyone.

Coach Brandon is awesome! He knows how to get the best out of my son during each lesson but still keep it fun.

Coach Brandon has terrific positive energy. He gave my 10-year-old son a lot of technical advice to improve his form. Now my son is counting down the days till his next practice!

The first session with Coach Robinson went great. He is very knowledgeable. Brandon had good drills even for a newcomer to the sport. He was effective at communicating and very encouraging. I really appreciated the time he took to give my son feedback; he gave him compliments but was also able to give constructive criticism. He boosted my sons confidence. The session ended and he gave my son things to practice until we met again. Overall, a great coach and we look forward to continuing training.

Coach Brandon is excellent. He really connects with his players, even my 6th grader loved his time with Brandon and has been home practicing his skills everyday so he can show him how much he is learning.

Very patient, caring and knows what he is talking about/doing. Brandon is a high school JV coach, so I wouldn't expect any less. My daughter was stubborn trying to learn from me, but picked up right away from Brandon. I think it was great we choice we made when we booked to go with Brandon. My daughter looks forward to your next session.

Great session! Extremely dedicated coach that helps me grow as a player.

Thank you so much for everything you do coach! You are truly one heck of a coach and you've made this season a worthwhile experience and I couldn't be more grateful. You've helped me in so many ways and how to be stronger. You pushed me to become the player I am today and I couldn't thank you enough for that!
