More About Coach Corey

I have experience in both coaching and in personal training. I have been training boys and girls individually from ages 7 to 18 as well as adults for the past couple of years, ranging from people who are just starting out to more experienced basketball players. I also have experience coaching at basketball camps run by Windward School as well as experience assistant coaching for both JV and varsity teams at Windward School. I am open to coaching all ages.

I was a four-year varsity basketball player at Windward School in Los Angeles in high school where I won a CIF regional championship in 2015. As a result of being located in Southern California as well as being a part of the challenging Gold Coast League, we played some of the toughest competition in the country each year. I was a three-year starter, earning a spot on the First Team Gold Coast League my senior season. I was also awarded the Matthew Shreck Leadership Award my senior year for outstanding athletic leadership at my school.

My sessions always have a heavy emphasis on the essential fundamentals of basketball. Before I get into shooting any three-pointers or doing five dribble moves at a time with my athletes, I will make sure that the basics are mastered first, such as all types of footwork, offhand layups, correct shooting form, defensive fundamentals, and more. Over time, as the athlete begins to become more adept in these essential fundamentals, we will move on to more complicated ball-handling, long-distance shooting, improving court vision and court sense, in-depth defensive strategy, and more.

Client Reviews

Corey is a very focused teacher, yet connects with youths as well. Therefore learning and productivity are balanced with enjoyment. Corey is also flexible and easy to deal with. My son is 13 yo and has worked with a LOT of coaches.

Corey is a solid coach. Really attentive, and after just two lessons I feel like I've gotten some great insights that will help me improve my game and shot long term.

Coach Corey is amazing. My kids instantly loved learning & playing with him.

Corey is an amazing coach! Our son loved Corey's approachable manner, high energy and well chosen drills. Corey's basketball sessions were fun, and our son loves to recap each session with the list of achievements and mechanics they worked on together. Flexible time slots, great rapport building and a total focus on improving our son's foundational mechanics have been beyond expectations. Thanks Corey!

Our training session was good

I had a really good first day with coach Corey. The drills and workouts were well aligned and organized. In addition, everything went smoothly.

My kids (11 yr old girl + 8 yr old girl) love working with Corey. He is always on time and reliable. Makes it fun for the kids while teaching them at the same time. Highly recommended. A++++
Looking forward to next time!

Coach Corey has instructed my daughter for a year now. His patience and understanding of my daughter's specific needs have not only improved her game but allowed her to play up an age level on her Travel team and Middle school team. He helped her to develop the fundamental skills as well as team offensive and defensive mindset. He did all this while making the session fun as well as challenging. Highly recommend his services! 5 stars all around!
Corey is an incredibly skilled, kind and caring basketball trainer. He is also an all around great person and role model. He has worked with my daughter for over a year and not only has she improved her skills, but her confidence too. She really looks forward to their workouts and is always exhausted, in a good way, after them. I asked her for three words to describe Corey and she said patient, understanding and encouraging. We can't say enough good things about him as a person as well as a trainer. Highly recommend!
