Dane really worked my son during his session. He challenged him more then his regular coach. He was professional and you can tell that he really loves the game.

Coach Dane was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to talk to. Workouts are thoughtful and customized depending on areas of improvement. I highly recommend Coach Dane for anyone looking to improve their skills both on the competitive level, but also for fun.

Dane is a great coach and friendly guy. He has a detailed session plan to work on foundational skills and mixes in game time simulations to apply what I learned. Would definitely recommend Dane as a coach!

Professional, calm and competent. Had a great time and get a new level of skills.
