played 4 years of college ball and 4 years of professional basketball. i also attended NIKE skills training academy in Portland Oregon at the NIKE headquarters. Attended and completed Adidas training at the Adidas headquarters in Oregon with emphasis on strength building and muscle recovery in young athletes.

sessions will start off with basic stretching and warm ups,basic to advanced ball handling drills,shooting and moving without the ball and a breakdown of skills based upon individual position and skill set. the workout is followed by a cool down/ full court 5 on 5 tutorial of running an offense and defense/ being able to read both (knowledge of the game). We try to attend client games during the course of their season to measure progress and to point out and work on weaknesses. Sessions are individually structured to address the specific needs of the athlete. Group sessions are are also offered and consist of a vigorous set workout plan that allows the athletes to sharpen their skills in a competitive setting that closely mirrors the setting and intensity they will eventually encounter on an organized team.

Client Reviews

Basketball Teacher Chris is a warm-hearted coach. It’s hard to teach my 13yrs old son who is from China and doesn’t speak English well. Chris tried hard to let my boy to understand the skills. My son thinks what Chris taught him is cool.

Coach Christopher is not only excellent with working with my son, but also his technical training knowledge is wonderfully. I would recommend any parent to have Coach Christopher train their son or daughter and improved their basketball technical skills. Let be very clear, Coach Christopher this coach will teach your child the technical skills needed to be a better basketball player.

The first session went quite well. My son really enjoyed working with him.

My son needed help with shooting the ball. Coach Christopher worked with him and one session he felt more confident.

Coach Christopher has the perfect voice tone and disposition when working with my 5 year-old. I am very pleased to date.

My son totally enjoyed his first session with Coach Christopher. Christopher pinpointed my son's strengths and weaknesses right away. Fixed his free throws with one game changing critique. He conveys a seasoned back-to-basics approach and his instant feedback will prove invaluable in future sessions.

My teenage son says Chris is a really good coach. He gives great feedback.

After this session Coach Chris helped me point out my weakness, and attack them head on improving my footwork, ball handling, and fundamentals of the game.

Coach Chris had good insight into the mechanics of the shot and was able to show my son how to better his. Pointed out areas that needed improvement based on his observation. Seems knowledgeable and has experience.
My son seemed to walk away with having learnt something new and is looking forward to more sessions.

Chris is an excellent personal coach! He is very patient with my son and takes the time to ensure that he understands what he is trying to teach him. My son’s shooting has been an issue and Chris has helped him make noticeable improvement over the summer. I would definitely recommend Chris for anyone wanting to improve their game.

Good trainer!

Really great focus on technique. No short
cuts.

First session was a quick run through and evaluation of my skills. But Christopher already began pointing out flaws and removing the hitch in my jumper. A worry I might've had was that some coaches who were excellent players may only train you to their own skill set in their own mold or abilities that don't fit your game/body. But Chris, seems aware of your needs and able to adjust quickly to your needs. Will book again with him.

Coach Christopher helped push my son to his limits, he helped correct my son's shooting form on his first session, he also helped him with his ball handling, and stigma. He was a little uncomfortable with his new shooting form, but he'll get used to it.

Coach Christopher came to watch my 8th grader workout with an AAU team. He provided an assessment to target the areas in which my son needs improvement. Planning a workout soon!

Great coach! My son is thrilled about his sessions

Coach Chris was a great coach. Will be coming back for more sessions

Coach Chris is very patient and expels great fondness with teaching the younger generation. He teaches the correct forms and provides my son the understanding he needs to capture the logic and strategy beyond shooting a BBall. The understanding of creating moves, when and why. My son is enjoying his techniques more than I've ever seen him display towards any other coach he's played with. As a single parent this is a great opportunity for us both. Thanks Coach Chris

Worked well with my son, look forward to future sessions.

My 14 year old son enjoyed and learned from his first workout a lot and is looking forward to more of them to improve his game.

Coach Christopher was great, he got my child to complete the whole class and he looked good doing it. And he likes doing it. He can't wait for session two. I like the way Coach interact with Reg.

My son loves training with coach Chris

This was my son's first coaching session with him. Chris assessed his skills a conducted a session that helped in areas my son needed improvement. Highly recommended.

Coach Christopher exceeded expectations in all areas; mainly - personable, connected with Jacob immediately, and Myself. First night with Jacob, he achieved more than I have in a year. He is skilled, knowledgeable and an excellent Coach. Look forward to Jacob working with him.

Coach Chris quickly identified problem areas in my son's game and provided instruction that will enhance his performance.

My daughter (11) has had two sessions with coach Chris. Both sessions were efficient and effective. The drills and lessons have all been age and level appropriate. On top of putting together effective sessions, Coach Chris has made it fun. My daughter enjoyed the sessions and is excited about improving her game.

Great first session with Coach Christopher. He brings a lot of passion, focus and commitment to helping his clients improve. His coaching drills and techniques were creative and well paced and kept my 15 year old son working hard and pushing throughout the session. Coach Christopher identified areas needed for improvement and provided honest feedback about my son's potential if he were to continue to work hard. I appreciated that he also encouraged him to continue to work hard if he really wanted to play at the next level. My son was very motivated after Chris talked with him after the session. He talked with him about the importance of not only be good in basketball, but also having good grades along with good character, since your grades often reflect both your character and your ability to handle responsibility. I think Chris has a lot to offer and it was clear that he understands what it takes to be successful on and off the court.

Excellent skill set so my son can learn correctly how to dribble and shoot. Consistency with learning the correct form. My son, who is 6, has improved after a few sessions and wants to learn more. I love the enthusiasm and the engagement seen between my son and his coach. He looks forward to each session.

First I want to thank coach Chris for taking the time and patience to coach my son. Coach Chris is a very good coach and shows the kids step by step the proper technique to become a better athlete. My son confidence level from the beginning of the session elevated. He can't wait to do another session with coach Chris. I totally recommend Coach Chris. Thanks

I look forward to working with Coach Chris again. In just a matter of minutes I could already see the improvement in my son's ball handling skills and confidence.

My daughter just finished 10 sessions with Coach Chris and she was timid and not very aggressive when she started, but by the end of the 10th session my daughter was very different. She was confident and aggressive which translated to points on the scoreboard. It has been great to see her grow within these few short weeks. I can't wait to see what her game is like after the next couple of sessions.

I really learned a lot from Coach Chris. I started seeing results after the first session. He has really changed the way I approach the game mentally and physically. He really is an excellent coach.
