I have a 3 step training model.

(1) I like to incorporate drills that target improving a client's speed, agility, explosiveness.

(2) go through improving basic player skills (ball handling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defending), and then.

(3) move into more position specific/advanced individual moves drills (spot up shooting, shooting on the move, driving to score/pass, pick and roll, pick and pop, floaters, reverses, euro steps, etc.).

My drills are specifically to get you better prepared for games, to improve your situationally awareness, and to make you a better player, not better at doing drills.

Awesome experience ,really worked my child to the max

He made an appointment for a basketball training for my son.When we met in the inside gym, we couldn't use that gym because there was a basketball game.He didn't make sure if he could use that gym before the training. After that day I couldn't get in touch with him. He didn't respond to my text and voicemail and my call.

Coach Calvin is really knowledgeable and a great teacher. I’ve improved with every session and I’ve really enjoyed my time with him. He is definitely someone you can trust to up your game or your child’s game.

Calvin is training my nine year old son. He loves coach Calvin. Calvin is very nice and very patient. He also has practical tips for improving the skills that my son is struggling with.

First lesson with Coach Calvin today, I was very impressed. He showed great patience with my son while making the session fun. You could see my son's confidence grow as the session progressed. My two boys have worked with many coaches in many sports. Calvin is one of the best!

You do a great job of breaking things down CJ...
Thats EXCELLENT stuff right there! Game ready drills. I see a lot of trainers making the mistake of teaching drills. The student athlete gets into a game, and plays as if he/she is drilling. No application as you stated earlier. Beginners need to drill...ballers need to be ready to ball
Great preventative and performance workout.
Thank you for supporting our boys from Moco all the way to Va beach. Your training helped us take home yet another one!
