More About Coach Damone

I was a 3 year starter at Syracuse University, where I was an All Big-East player. I played for a Hall of Fame coach who taught me a lot about the game that I'm passing on today.

I have been coaching AAU basketball for the past 6 years, I've been coaching high school basketball for the past 3 years, and now entering my first year as a collegiate coach.

I've been doing individual basketball training & skill development for 8 years.

After my college career I was drafted to the NBA. I have enjoyed a professional career that lasted over 10 years. I have learned the game of basketball from some of the best basketball minds in the world. And I'm here to pass that knowledge on.

When doing individual development I develop the whole game. I can meet all areas that the player needs.
"Shooting, Shooting form, Ball-Handling, Passing, Defense & Rebounding"
I can tailor my workout to the player needs.

Coach Damion is an amazing coach he’s very knowledgeable, experience and professional. My son accomplished a lot in just one session. Every athlete should have a coach Damion. Thank you for coaching my son. Can’ wait for our next session.


Already booked another session!

My daughter has worked with Coach Damone several times over the last few years. I can always see a improvement in her play and confidence after just 1 session with him. We would recommend working with him to anyone

Damone was great with my son. We will definitely be scheduling another session!

Coach was great!!! Looking forward to getting more lessons

Coach Damone did an awesome job helping my son prepare for tryouts.. And after not making the team last year, he did make it this year!!!

My son had a great workout with coach Damone. They worked on his shooting and he got some useful feedback to improve. He's looking foward to going back. Thanks.

The training is good, I learned how to use my pivot at my first class. It is a little bit tired but worthy.

Coach Damone was great to work with. Kept my boys on task and wouldn't let them stop until they did it right. We're booking our next session this week.

Excellent with my son has him do things until he does it correctly.

Coach Damone helped me get a lot of shots up! At the same time he also helped me out with some of mechanics, which have already helped me on the court!

Coach Damone demonstrated a high degree of profiency, time management, punctuality and effectiveness. My daughter truly enjoyed working with Coach Damone and as mom, I appreciated his efficiency.

Coach Damone was awesome! His coaching style is the best! Our boys had fun and learned new drills. He worked them hard and taught them new skills. We look forward to training with him. If you want a great coach you found him!

My son really enjoys training with Damone and looks forward to going to the next session.

Review #2--2016-Once again our family returned home for the summer and my daughter couldn't wait to train with Coach Damone. She trained everyday. Coach Damone worked extensively on her speed, agility and specific moves for her position as guard using different drills daily--that pushed her to improve. We are grateful for all the hard work and improvement we saw in our daughter and also grateful she was able to train with Coach Damone once again. We highly recommend Coach Damone!

Review #1--2015-Our family has returned home for a few weeks and my daughter wanted to continue her basketball training during the summer. CoachUp offers the largest network of private coaches anywhere! I was able to find Coach Damone through CoachUp and after just one training session I saw my daughter training at a higher level. Coach Damone sharpened my daughter's skills, tenfold, with just one session. She learned many new moves, and I am certain as my daughter continues her training with Coach Demone that he will improve my daughter's overall game. We are looking forward to our daughter training with Coach Damone for the rest of the time we're in town and also any time we return. He is an extraordinary Coach, athlete and person. We are grateful our daughter has the opportunity to train with him.

We do plan on using Coach Damone every summer upon our return home. He has left quite an impression on myself, my husband and especially my daughter.

Coach Damone is a great coach!! The drills, along with his coaching skills, taught my son ball handling and various other skills that helped increase his confidence after each session. Damone always provided feedback and encouragement. Thank you again Damone!!!

Great first session, he was very up beat in car on way home, which is not typical for Tim. Thank you, coach.

Great coach

I highly recommend Coach Brown. He gets a lot done with a player in 75 minutes. He challenegd my son with many game-useful drills. Coach Brown gives good feedback to players as they train. His demeanor is excellent--serious but friendly. A Coach Brown session is better than any local camp your son or daughter could go to.

Coach Damone is a great coach.
Q son loved his drills and like it and he looks a lot better on the court after one session.We will defintiy go back to him. He is a great coach.

Had 2 great workouts with Damone -- a lot of great ball handling drills and cardio workout. Thanks!

Great coach! I see my sons confidence and skills grow with every session. It's very exciting! He is having fun and looks forward to every training day. I would highly recommend coach Damone to any player that wants to take thier game to the next level.

Worth every minute and every penny. I taught my son all I could and was looking for a personal coach. I then found Damone through CoachUp and I am glad I did. After only a few sessions with Damone my son's game has seen significant improvements.

Damone has greatly improved my two boys' ball handling and shooting skills in only five sessions. Their improved skills have greatly helped them and their teams in their high school JV and Varsity games, and they look forward to their time with Damone each week.

Working out with Coach Damone was great, he has a lot of great drills that he does during his workouts. I can't wait to go back and train with him.
