Client Reviews

Coach Curtis was excellent. He teaches basic skills and was very patient and positive with our 6 year old. He made skills simple, like squishing the bug with your toe to hold your pivot foot in place. He even showed him some advanced skills.

Coach Curtice is an amazing coach. He does such a great job of explaining why they do certain drills and connecting it to how it will make my son a more successful player. It really makes things click for my son. He relatable, personable, and an overall great guy. My son really enjoys his lessons with Curtis and he really motivates my son to do better.

Coach Curtice is great! He gets my son working hard and motivated to achieve his goals. I have seen my son’s skills and confidence improve. Coach is very kind and personable as well.

Coach Curtice was great. He helped my 7 year old son with a lot of great techniques in basketball. After just one session, my son had more confidence and was pulling moves I hadn’t seen before. Great all around!

Curtice is young and dedicated coach that loves the basketball game. Over the booked training sessions, he looked for ways to learn more about skills to be improved for my son and help him to advance. I would recommend Curtice, for sure will be go-to coach for next sessions.

Coach Curtice is the real deal! He gave me a lot of helpful tips to help perfect my shooting motion from a catch and shoot to shooting in motion. We give some elaborate dribbling drills allowed me to work on strengthening my passing as a PG. It’s only been one session i could already see an improvement in my footwork leading to a more fluent jump shot off the dribble. Another session is a must and I plan on working with with him again soon.

Our son is moving into High School ball and finished up with Club and NJB. This summer we wanted to help him with some fresh coaching perspectives and to step up his workout routines, and Coach Curtice delivered! After the first session we (including my son) were so impressed that we quickly scheduled 2 more, and I’m about to schedule many more sessions. Coach Curtice spent time getting to know my son, gives him direct feedback and even assigns skills development homework. He’s serious about his work, has fun doing it and is fully focused on his athletes. He has also been gracefully flexible with our schedule. We are so fortunate to have found him. Thank you Coach Curtice!

Coach Curtice was a great coach! His training and techniques are amazing. My son really enjoyed the lessons. I would recommend Coach Curtice to anyone.

I’m very happy to meet with coach Curtice . We set the goal , we are going to focus the plan that he gave me. I had tried another coaches but Coach Curtice noticed my shortcomings in 10-15 min then he started to show what I need to improve during our training . He was totally right and I’m pretty sure I will improve my all skills with him . I strongly recommend him if you are looking for a basketball coach , if you have a goal and needs plan...

I’m %100 going to book another sessions !


Coach Curtice is a great coach! He has a true passion for basketball! He is easy to communicate both on and off the court. He keeps sessions documented and gives full attention to me. I really do appreciate him.
Highly recommended!!

Coach Curtice is a very good Coach whenever you I’m late to play games with him to keep him

Aside from Coach Curtice being a very nice coach, if you train with him, you will see your basketball skills improve FAST. And you can learn lots of other things from him not only basketball. He pushes you go to hard every time you train. His goal is to make you get better as soon as possible.
I have known Curtice for about 4 years. I have seen the way he has elevated his game and his knowledge about the game of basketball to the next level. His work ethics and dedication are admirable. I see the same dedication when it comes to him coaching young athletes. I wish all the best.
I went in to training with Curtice basically not knowing what to do. I didn’t really know how to dribble, shoot, etc. As time went by and going to train the times we would train changed that. He has helped me get through problems, he has helped me get better with basketball and the person I am today. Curtice has impacted my life tremendously through the time I was training with him. He’s a great guy, he knows what he’s doing. I liked going and training with him it was hard but that’s apart of it, also he made it fun. Curtice is the best trainer i’ve been too and I would recommend going to him if you want to get better with basically anything that has to do with basketball.
Coach Curtice has been helping me build a prestigious youth basketball program since early 2018. I couldn’t find a better fit for what I believe youth sports should look like. He is very knowledgeable of the game and the energy and intensity he brings to the court is contagious. Every child that comes in contact with Coach Curtice will learn the game of basketball the appropriate way.
