More About Coach Christian

I have been coaching young athletes since 2014. I was the head coach for the Good Shepard Catholic Church JV and Varsity boys' basketball team. Led both teams to successful seasons and won a Championship with the Varsity team (JV had no playoffs for some reason).

I interned at my high school G. Holmes Braddock for 1 season and assisted the head JV and Varsity coaches. After my one year I started to work for a Basketball Academy where we train dozens of kids almost every day and coach games with those same kids. We work with kids a 5-18 years old. I have been here since 2017 and currently still working. I would like to try and help more kids and expand and reach more kids.

I currently am working getting my NSCA's personal trainer certificate. I also have a passion for fitness and exercising can help improve your basketball and overall fitness.

I played high school basketball for my high school G. Holmes Braddock. I have gone to many exposure camps overseas to put myself into the shoes of what it takes to become a professional in this sport. To experience it myself would be something that can increase my knowledge and enhance my abilities to better coach and develop young athletes.
Played overseas in Valencia, Spain for the Europro Basketball team . Averaged 6 points/3 assists/ 1 rebound per game. The game overseas is very team oriented and that will help players learn basketball IQ.

I know this doesn't relate to the skills or play of basketball but this relates to how to play on team aspect of basketball. I competed national in the sport of paintball. I have come with a lot of top place finishes and the experience transcends to another level. I was traveling the world playing a sport which I deeply enjoy. I was experiencing what it was like to play on an organized team whether you get paid or you pay, is something that can relate to playing on any sports team. I have been competing since 2012 to 2017 traveling every year to compete against the top competition and growing along the way. There were many wins, but there were a lot of losses as well. Overall, I can teach them values that can help their careers in many ways.

Always start off with ball handling I believe and I know others may have different ideas but to each their own, but I believe the most important skill to learn is being able to dribble the ball. I start off with stationary dribbles and then progress into moving with the ball and footwork with ball handling.

Then move on to working on finishes around the rim. Slowly progressing into detailed footwork while shooting multiple finishes with both hands.

After this I like to get into some technique drill that can help easily translate to game scenario. There are always things to work whether it be learning new skill or tweaking an already good skill, it all depends on the level of play from the player.

Continuing with some shooting in many different ways, start off on the move then ending up game like shots. Then a cool down and that would be it for one session.
