More About Coach Chaim

I have been training basketball and football players of all ages since 2012 and have been coaching team sports since 2007. Working with over 70 athletes the past 3 years, I have seen many of my athletes transform their abilities and help them make/start for their respective teams and have seen 8 of my athletes move onto the college level. As a player, I played Basketball throughout high school, as a point guard + shooting guard. Injuries in my junior year limited my impact as a varsity player, so I turned my focus to coaching + training after high school.

Over the past 10 years, I have been coaching football and basketball at the middle school and high school levels My last 6 years of coaching have been spent at Milton Academy primarily. During this time, I have spent 2 years as an assistant coach for the middle school basketball team (as well as head coach for the football team).

I have learned a great deal about coaching basketball from our head coach at Milton. Through all my years of playing and watching, and studying basketball, I will help improve your kids ability to shoot, pass, dribble, and understand the game better. I have worked with several clients on Coachup and have had great success. My session plans are customized to each client.

Basketball:

3 years varsity experience

Football:

Assistant coach of the 2013 New England and ISL Champions: Milton Academy Mustangs. Defensive Coordinator for the Brookline Pop Warner team that won a District Championship in 2007 and a State Championship in 2008. Have Trained and implemented training sessions for over 200 young men, who each have improved tremendously. (some who were able to make teams as beginners and others who have gone on to play college football).

My company motto is "an individualized approach to each client." Each athletes has different needs and I approach my sessions with an open mind and willingness to adapt to my clients body mechanics and strengths/weaknesses.

A typical session will look something like this:

Warm-up and Attacking the basket:
A. Calisthenics to warm up the body/ perfect body mechanics.
B. Taking layups from all spots on the floor (off 1 dribble primarily)
C. Transiton offense- finishing at the hoop off a variety of passes
D. Triple threat- perfecting players offensive game through use of jab steps, shot fakes and dribble moves.

Shooting:

A. Form shooting (30 shots using the correct form with your doninant hand, as all shots are essentially 1 handed)
B. Jump shots- 50+ shots either off the catch and/or off the dribble. Storng emphasis on proper form and beign "catch ready."

Training component:

A. Agility: Includes speed belt, k bands, lateral resistors and ladder drills.
B. Power: Includes fundamental plyometric exercises as well as utilizing equipment to increase vertical ability

Dribbling/Defense:

A. Basic ball handle drills that should be repeated by each athlete every day for 10 minutes. Includes 2 ball drills.
B. Defensive drills emphasizing a good low base, sliding the feet and what to look for (offensive players belt buckle, man with ball)

*Sessions also include some video of the session, so athlete can see themselves trainning and what they need to work on.

Great Coach! highly recommended

Coach Chaim was great. Really comprehensive with my son in the first session and very motivating. Highly recommended!

Excellent coach. Builds rapport with athlete and is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

Coach Chaim was great with my son. He really maximized the workout and stayed positive and enthusiastic. My son felt that he gained a ton--both in terms of agility/speed and technique from just one session. We will definitely be doing more sessions with Coach Chaim!

I got the trial session to see if Coach Chaim was a good for with my son. In that time, with the small corrections Coach Chaim made I saw an improvement in my son’s performance. I will definitely be signing up for more sessions.

So far so good. Has set up a program to help my son’s agility that he can perform on his own. About 3 sessions in out of 8 scheduled

Great communication with my son.
I enjoyed his calm, direct style.
My son is looking forward to more sessions.

Coach Chaim has been great from the beginning. He promptly relied to us when we reached out through Coach Up and he has been organized and focused and enthusiastic ever since. Our son, 7th grade, has been working with Coach Chaim 1-2 times per week for several months. We see notable improvement and Coach Chaim keeps data to show the progress concretely. It is fantastic. We have had private and semi-private sessions and all have been great! Our son works hard and has fun doing it. He has improved in speed, strength, conditioning and overall agility a lot! He also works on basketball skills with Coach Chaim and loves it! We recommend Coach Chaim highly and without any reservations!

Coach Chaim was was a super coach. We went over some fundamentals on shooting and footwork. Overall great sessions. Thanks!

Best, most organized Coach Up session that my son has had. We have had two other coaches and they focused more on volume of shots and drills. Coach Chaim got into the details for the form and showed with videos what he was trying to explain. Right after the session my son was ready for the next session to start improving. Excellent organization and I would highly recommend.

I have been working with Coach Chaim for about a month and a half. On my first session, he assessed my skills, and told me what we/I should work on. Since our first session, I have gained so much speed, and my agility skills have increased. I absolutely love this man and what he has done for me so for! I would definitely recommend training with him.

Great coach! After two sessions, we are already seeing a difference in the play of our son. Great job!

My son really enjoyed working with Coach Chaim. He was very informative and we look forward to working with him again.

Coach Chaim is a wonderful coach. He knows what to work on by assessing skills prior to teaching new ones. My son has learned a lot from him in just a couple of sessions.

I wished I had worked with him earlier. Knows exactly what I need to work on to be successful at my position, and works with me to get there.

Great communication and knows his stuff. Works well with kids and very professional. Pleasure to work with.

I gotta say I wasn't planning on doing more than one session with Coach C. Half way through my son's first session I immediately signed up for 4 more sessions. My boy has played organized football for a very competitive team for three years now. I feel we got a lot more out of just one session in terms of technique, real understanding of growth areas and a clear understanding of the path forward to get my son from just playing to being a competitive player at his position. Well worth the investment. I encourage anyone thinking about Coach C to do the initial session. You will not regret it.

Amazing and professional coach. He is really knowledgeable about techniques on how to improve physical strengths to any sports. Top notch trainer. The best!

Great coach ,

Great session. Coach jumped right in and began making adjustments to my son's techniques. We will certainly continue to work with Coach Chaim.

My son had his 1st session with Coach C. last weekend. I sat in the car while he worked with (J). After the session I could tell my son was exhausted. Coach came up to me and told me his stengths and things ge needed to work on. He gave my son some examples of things to do. After we left my son could not stop talking about the session. He had nothing but great things to say about Coach C. He said he knew what he was talking about and said he was so easy to communicate with. We were only planning on doing 1 session but my son wont stop asking me if I booked the next. You definitely wont be disappointed l

Coach Chaim is a fantastic coach, he is very motivating and engaging. He quickly noticed the areas in which my son needed improvement and is currently doing a great job in developing those areas. My son has enjoyed working with him these past couple weeks and is always looking forward to the next session. Coach C rocks!

My son had a tremendous first workout with Coach Chaim. He worked hard, received a lot of positive feedback and encouragement, and learned about his strengths and weaknesses. Coach is very knowledgeable and definitely has an act with working with kids just staring out learning to play football. My son has a plan and schedule for the summer all worked out with Coach. As a parent I found Coach Chaim very personable, motivated and have no doubts that my son will greatly improve over the summer. Also Coach is very accommodating and flexible which makes scheduling lessons with him easy. My son is really excited to get started!

Coach Chaim was phenomenal. He spearheaded a birthday party bash for 30 (7-8 year old) boys and the boys LOVED him ! He is a great communicator, covets details, is extremely diligent, passionate, understands boundaries. and takes great pride in his work! I would highly recommend him to anyone who values a true professional and a good person. Thank you so much Chaim. We look forward to having you back soon again. Cheers

Very motivating and positive while being effective!

This was my first session and I really loved it. I am excited to keep working with Chaim throughout the spring and summer. He kept me feeling g good, while still telling me the truth. Would Recommend!!!

First session with coach Chaim was great. We focused on improving my mechanics, as I transition to receiver. I look forward to working with coach Chaim in the future.

Coach Chaim was great. Ian clicked immediately with him and I could tell that they both were having fun. The day after the lesson Ian had a game and I got several e-mails about how well he played. I know that he is looking forward to working with Coach Chaim to improve his game

Coach C is a great personal coach. Our cooperation started with his quick response and availability on a very short notice. He quickly identified strong and weak parts of my game on which we focused. His sessions consisted of variety of different drills putting emphasis on good shooting form, attacking the basket, precise and strong ball handling and tough and efficient defense. Throughout our workouts he also pointed out useful tips on how to do certain things more efficiently in game-time situations. Overall, we both felt an improvement even after small number of sessions, preparing me well for upcoming try-outs for a college team. I would definitely recommend Coach C to anybody who seeks improvement and development of his basketball skills and knowledge!

Coach Chaim made an immediate impact on my son's technique. He is incredibly knowledgeable of the details of the game and can successfully break down into small detail proper techniques. My son took to his coaching style with enthusiasm. I highly recommend him!!

Our son has now had more than ten lessons with Coach Chaim, which is a testament to what we think of the work that Coach C. does. He began by assessing our son's strengths and weaknesses for his given position and developed a plan for his improvement. Coach C. doesn't rest on his laurels: he constantly does research to find new drills and exercises that will help an individual player develop. We have seen steady improvement in our son and, just as importantly, he loves going to the lessons and working with Coach Chaim to become the best football player he can be.

Coach Chaim has been absolutely amazing. My son was adamant that he wanted to play football this year entering his sophomore year. He also wanted to try out as qb. Although he had played a little bit while younger and although he is very athletic, my son really did not have much knowledge regarding the skills and position. Coach Chaim has been working with him over several sessions to improve his skills and knowledge of the game. MY son has really enjoyed it and appears to have progressed to the point where I think he will have at least a shot at the position he wants to play. I can recommend coach Chaim without hesitation and with my utmost enthusiasm. He is worth the money!

Coach Chaim has been fantastic! My son has learned a ton in his first few sessions and his confidence has grown. So much of football is about technique, and the opportunity to work one on one with a coach of this caliber has been an amazing experience.

Coach Chaim,
Training my son and is such a great support with nutrition and weight management. My Son plays D1 College Football as a (Running Back) and we already know from the first two training sessions his strengthens and weakness, and we're now focusing on what needs improvement, as he continue to train he will continue to get help with improving his speed, power, foot work, balance and agility. Coach Chaim has great coaching skills, He develops great football fundamental skills that will improve my sons athletic skills to make him a successful player thanks coach for all your time, patience and support.

Coach Chaim has been fantastic. In just two sessions we've seen our son Oliver increase his athleticism, speed and agility. I'm excited to see how he does in the next month or so as Coach Chaim shares his experience as a lineman.

Thoughtful knowledgeable and patient. 3 key qualities for any top notch coach. Chaim was a pleasure to work with.

Coach Chaim is a stellar basketball coach. He knows what he's doing, and in a few sessions I already see a difference in my son's confidence and performance.

Coach Chaim was great…he worked with my 11 and 14 year old on QB mechanics and I saw an immediate difference, especially with my 11 year old. Also Chaim helped my 14 year old get is 40 time down from 5.4 with some really good running mechanic suggestions…can't wait to continue our work w Coach Chaim.

Coach Chaim is an outstanding coach. His training is excellent and he is very knowledgeable! He's teaching my son to play with POWER, focusing on finishing STRONG! I'm confident that Coach Chaim will help my son get to the next level. I HIGHLY recommend him.

Great coaching for basketball. His own skill set is as a fast point guard/shooting guard and he stressed that skill set for my son which was great. He made some solid recommendations for post work out exercises to build up strength and coordination for better ball handling and shooting. Chaim did a good job of pushing hard when right and stopping when right too. Looking forward to more workouts.

Coach Chaim was a true professional. Both passionate and relateable, Chaim didn't waste a minute of our 90 minute session. He kept the lesson fun while also teaching me a ton!

My son has enjoyed his sessions with Coach Chaim and has learned from them. Coach C is great to work with, on time, and is developing my son's positional skills. Would definitely recommended!

Coach Chaim was a good coach understood my child's needs and addressed them throughout practice. Looking forward to working with him again

I have been working with Coach C for a week now and it has been an excellent experience. I am learning how to punt, and although Coach C is not specifically a punting coach, he has done research on punting and he came to each one of our lessons prepared with a plan of action to improve my fitness, flexibility, and punting. In just a week I have made tremendous progress all thanks to Coach C. We spend the first 30 minutes of practice working on fitness, strength and flexibility (he knows numerous exercises) and then we transition into punting drills. I strongly recommend any aspiring football to work with Coach C, he is a hard-working, knowledgeable coach that will make you a stronger, more fit person and take your game to the next level at the same time. He is an asset for any aspiring football player, from young kids to experienced high school athletes.

Elie had a great session today. Thank you for making his transition smooth! Look forward to his next session.

Great session with Coach C. He was well organized - the session was well laid out and went from basic skills to more difficult, he was well prepared - he had obviously researched drills for JC's position. We will definitely be doing more sessions with Coach C.

Chaim was terrific - he was very knowledgeable about football fundamentals, fun to work with, and helped my son progress to the next level in a very short time. We can't wait to work with him again!

I have worked with Chaim Andler (Coach C) for the past three years. In those three years, as a football player, I have gone from being a soccer player and knowing nothing about the game to playing varsity as a freshman and probably starting as a sophomore. In fact, I originally scheduled sessions with him because I came late to practices at the beginning of the year and had no idea what the game was about. Chaim has been transformational as a coach due, in part, to his exuberant coaching style and he “go get em” attitude but also because of his deep knowledge and understanding of the game. When I started out with him, we did mainly skill oriented stuff because I wasn’t good enough to focus on athleticism yet, but as I got more advanced and skilled, he adapted his training style to help me with speed, explosiveness, and footwork as well as the skill things. One of the things I love most about Coach C is that his workout are always new and different to keep it interesting but they also work on your weaknesses to help you improve. My speed has never been great due to my size but under Chaim’s training, my 40 time went from a 6.7 to a 5.6 over the course of our training and it continues to go down. I have worked with many coaches over my football career but Chaim is definitely my best and favorite and I couldn’t imagine a better fit.
Great, young and enthusiastic coach. He comes up with his own drills, which are helpful at improving different skills. He is willing to adapt to the different clients that he has and is fit to coach anyone to their needs.
