More About Coach Chris

I have been coaching and training athletes for 20 years at the youth, high school, college level.

I am a certified I'm Possible Trainer. I have coached for Methuen Youth Basketball Association, Methuen High School and Presentation of Mary over the years and currently coach at Presentation of Mary.

Played high school basketball. Where I was an all star and placed in the slam dunk contest.

After high school started coaching at the youth level and fell in love with coaching. Became certified with I'm Possible in 2014.

A typical one hour session will consist of half hour of ball handling. Which would consist of specific movements and game situational movements. The second half of the session would consist of getting shots off once again in game situational movements. Trying to bring the game to life with all movements. 99% of the training brings the game to life, so that my athletes are game ready.

Extremely knowledgeable !

My daughter really responded well to Chris and his techniques. She spend the next several days practicing what she learned with a desire to improve. We are looking forward to the next few lessons with Coach Chris.

My ten year old son has done multiple one on one sessions with Chris and it has helped him immensely. Chris has taught him the proper way to crossover, go through his legs, shoot, rebound, and play D. There's nothing that Chris can't teach, and teach the proper way, to his athletes!

Coach Chris does a great job of setting up the work he wants to do with your child and goes the extra mile in explaining how what he is teaching is applicable in game situations. He was patient and thorough and I can wait to see the improvement in my daughter's game!

My son couldn't have been more pleased with Chris's attitude and coaching. He can't wait to go back again

It is unbelievable to see the progress in my son within 5 sessions. My son can't wait each session. Coach Chris is not only knowledgeable but also very friendly...
Thank you coach...

Coach Chris has effective and motivating communication techniques with my 14 year old daughter. He is good at explaining the "why", ensuring the player understands before moving on. Coach Chris is very knowledgeable about the game better yet has an excellent way of transcending that information into applicable-ready to use techniques.

Coach Chris is a great Coach! My 10 year old had very little skill. In two sessions coach Chris has been able to make him competitive with his peers that have been playing for 2-3 years. Coach Chris teaches strong fundamentals in game like situations. He explains both cause and effect of his teaching, so that it is understood clearly why he is teaching what he is teaching. I am Very happy with the progress and would recommend coach Chris to anyone!

Coach Chris is great. After only 2 sessions my daughter who has been playing AAU Basketball for 3 yrs told me she has learnt stuff from coach Chris that she hasn't done in any practice session so far. Coach Chris doesn't only tell his players what to do or what moves to take but also explains why/benefits. This makes it easier for the player to understand and appreciate the benefits of all the drills. I will be booking more sessions with Chris..

My 16 year old daughter Selina has been playing basketball since she could walk. We have placed her in several off season work outs, in an effort to improve her game on both sides of the ball. This year Selina started working with Coach Chris Samataro two times a week! I have noticed that just in a short period of time Selina's game has improved drastically. Selina finishes her practices and raves about how much she had learned in two hours. I am super pleased with Coach Chris's commitment to the kids he coaches, he doesn't pretend to care, because he actually cares. Taking time out of your day and committing that time to coaching kids, shows how much he enjoys working on my daughters future! Could not put a price on this type of training! Thank you Chris!
