Depending on age, younger kids just basic fundamentals like every other coach. When I get to the more advance players, I do a lot of Integrated training. I develop the body as well as skill set, I train the athletes in agility, speed, quickness, plyometric etc.(football also with this type of training).

Client Reviews

Coach Curtis was incredible working with my daughter who had almost no experience with basketball. He is effective, gets results and makes it fun. Highly recommend.

My son ( High school senior) started training with coach Curtis and I am impressed that he goes above and beyond showing genuine interest in helping him become a better athlete mentally and physically. I feel that coach Curtis will help him have a great senior year!

Coach Curtis is hands down the best in the business. His attention to detail and training is second to none. My sons game has improved with every practice session. We plan on being a lifetime member with coach Curtis!

Really liked the first session. The in-game like situations were taught well, and the development of rebuilding my shot was helpful. He took into account and fixed all the small details that will impact the way I play later. He was a great, patient trainer.

Really loved having our first session with Coach Curtis for my little brother. His instructions reminded me of my time playing overseas. The session was fun while not wasting any time and really evaluating the skills needed to grow into a complete player. Looking forward to many more sessions with Coach Curtis.

Loved my first session with Coach Curtis!! I haven’t played competitively in a few years and wanted to improve skills for an upcoming league and just develop in general for myself & any situation. Coach Curtis is a no-nonsense but extremely approachable trainer...he knows how to maximize efficiency of the session in a short amount of time. His knowledge and attention to detail definitely stood out...I highly recommend him!! It’d be hard to find a coach with the experience he has somewhere else and you can tell he invests in everyone equally no matter your skill level. Can’t wait to put in more work under his direction!!

First session with Coach was a success, my son really enjoyed the direction. We are looking forward to seeing our son develop under his watchful eye. NO BS, great direction and a true spirit for wanting our son to succeed. If you are able to schedule sessions with him you wont be disappointed. Wish we found him sooner.

We are so glad we came across Coach Curtis. You can tell this guy knows what he is talking about! He was very responsive to our questions when first signing up. He really cares about the kids, enough to push them when they need it but also reaffirming when they improve. He’s extremely knowledgeable and motivational. Our son loved him. Can’t wait to see what the future holds!

He is excellent. Knows the game and all the fundamentals you need to play the game right.

It was really a pleasure meeting Coach Jones and getting through our first session. You can tell just by working with him once that he has so much experience and can be situation and adjust to different needs. My son is very excited about training through the summer with Coach Jones and playing basketball in high school next year.

Coach Curtis has been coaching my son. Coach Curtis is great at identifying a player's needs and forming a plan for them. Both my son and I really enjoy working with him and hope to continue to do so in the future.

Awesome first session! Looking forward to watching my son grow into a strong, confident player under Coach Curtis!

Coach Curtis has great rapport with kids and teaches the fundamentals of basketball very well. Footwork and moving without the ball are becoming a lost art, but the Spurs have clearly shown it wins games. I'm counting on Coach Curtis to help my son with these skills. We are off to a great start. And the form on his shot looks so much better.

Coach Jones was great! My son liked him from the start. He was prepared, energetic, fun and taught awesome drills. We will book him again!

Coach Curtis is awesome. His training and technique is wonderful. I have seen such changes in my son since he began his lessons. Coach Curtis keeps him motivated and looking forward to next week's sessions. You can see the improvements in my son from week to week and he's eager to practice between sessions so he doesn't let Coach Curtis down. I would definately recommend Coach Curtis to anyone!

Hey Coach guess what...I got second team all Big 12, we made it to the NCAA tournament.
Thanks coach jones, I just wanted to tell you we won the championship at TJ Ford Tournament this weekend...guess what, I got MVP had 30 points...when are we getting together again.
I wasn't playing at all in high school, I became a littel frustrated. I knew I wanted to play basketbal, but was losing the love. I met coach jones, he just changed everything. I became the go to person, it was unbelievable. Now, I'm playing college basketball. Thanks coach I will see you this summer.
I ws always fast, but out of control, I didnt have a lot of confidence in my shot, or game. I spent one summer with coach Jones, he turned my career around. I avg. 13.7ppg, I was rank 22 in the country for Div I NAIA in steals, I was number 24 in the country in assist with 131(4.3ppg). I was on my way to the Philippine, until the Typhoon hit. Thanks coach I will see you this summer, we still have to work.
When coach Jones met me I was 6' 10" 265 pounds. All I wanted to do was shoot the ball from the outside. Coach jones got my weight down to 245, he helped me develop a low post game, also my ball handling got so much better. I'm now living my dream of playing professionally. Thank you coach
I always dreamed about playing college Basketball, like every other player. Coach jones made that dream real, he made me understand what it took to be a complete player. I became an all american in college. I'm now living another dream playing professionally,I was MVP last year avg. 15.5ppg., my shooting percentage went from 40%, to 53%. I still work out with coach jones every summer. Im stronger, faster, more explosive than ever. I can attack the basket and finish. Great job coach, see you this summer
I sat the bench all four years at my high school. Nobody would work with me. I wanted to learn how to play, they would just tell me to put my hands up, and play defense. Coach Jones taought me how to play the game the right way, The way a 6'9" post suppose to play, I'm the starting center for a Div I college team now, in my senior year. Thanks coach Jones I'll see you this summer, so we can go to another level.
