More About Coach Darion "Coach Dee"

I have been an AAU coach with the Atlanta Playmakers Elite for the past 5 years; i've been training males at the high school level through semi-pro for the past 3 years. I train both privately one on one and group sessions.

I have played both collegiate (Cal State Hayward) and semi-pro level (IBL). My semi-pro days included a 2 year span with the San Diego Stingrays (IBL). Also a short stint in Australia with the Brisbane Grizzlies.

No matter what size player i am working with i emphasize on guard skills, mobility, and core strength. We start off directly in front of the rim and shoot with both our strength and off hands to develop a nice arc. We step back about 4 ft, and repeat our process eventually ending just in front of the free throw; we then move to either side of the power box and shoot bank shots with either hand. My philosophy is that everything evolves around muscle memory. I will then illustrate an effective 3 dribble pull up mid-range jumper; emphasizing the power dribble before release. We will then move on to the power dribble step back jumper; from there we will work on some penetrating moves starting off with tear-drop floaters approximately releasing from 3 ft out. Next i illustrate an effective euro-step and finally a spin lay up and jump shot. Once this stage of the workout is complete and their mechanics have been structured we move out to shooting beyond the arc. I start off with both corners having the athlete run from side to side and catch and shoot. This is done in 2 minute increments. Then we have them shoot from 5 primary shots around the arc watching for the fundamentals; if the feet are squared up, arm extension, wrist rotation. Next we implement some dribbling drills such as having the athlete dribble at 3 speeds. Starting with walking the ball up the floor into a light jog then approaching their attack spot and going into a speed dribble and attacking the rim. I do not tend to mix heavy core training on the same day but we do some light exercises with a resistance ball.

Very patient and understanding!

Coach Dee was a great help to my son and gave him the inspiration needed to keep pushing forward. Also, taught him techniques that are helpful when on the court.

Coach Dee has done a remarkable job with my grandson Hunter. We are getting exactly what we wanted, good ball handling and control. His drills all work well and he continues to push Hunter to be the best he can. Coach Dee is truly dedicated to helping young kids. The best!!!! Thanks

I needed some extra training for my son and Coach Dee steeped in and exceeded my expectations. Immediately he talked to my son about his future plans and mapped out a plan to get him to his goal. He is now the starting SG for our AAU team and putting up productive numbers. Coach Dee has shared his experiences both on and off the court and my son now has a clear idea of what it takes to get to the next level.
My son started working with Coach Dee a couple months ago and i really like the progress i have seen in my son. Coach Dee recognized the advanced skills my son possesses and put together a custom highly intense workout for my son. If you are looking for your child to improve vastly in a short amount of time this is your trainer. Thank you Coach Dee.
Had my grandson's first session with Coach Dee. He teaches great ball handling skills. I already see improvement in my grandson's ability to dribble. Teaches balance in shooting which improved his shooting one hundred percent. Hunter can hardly wait for his next session. Coach Dee is truly a great coach.
Coach Dee has been working with me for about a year now and he has helped me gain exposure of a few DII college coaches. The workouts are strenuous but he keeps them fun and explains not only what we are working on but why we are working on it; and how it will benefit me in game time situations.
