More About Coach David

Over 20 years of coaching from the Cyo level to Pro-Am level in NYC. I have coached at St.Charles Borromeo, St. Raymonds, Riverdale Country School, Gauchos, Metro Mavericks, and Crusader Basketball.

During my fourth season as Athletic Director and Head Boys Varsity Basketball Coach at St. Raymond Elementary School in the Bronx, NY, I guided my team to the CYO Archdiocesan Varsity B Championship. The first title in the school history. I have compiled a winning record over the past 18 years of coaching in the NYC area on many levels from CYO to adult Pro-Am.

I am also the owner and founder of Crusader Basketball Inc., which is a developmental basketball program. Since its inception in 1997, Crusader Basketball has been providing a viable sports alternative to inner city boys ages 7 - 18. In the beginning it was a two-week sleep away summer basketball camp in Putnam Valley NY, which attracted on average 160 students each year. The initial focus was to simply provide a safe and affordable program for inner-city youth. In 2000, the importance of skill development both on and off the court became the primary focus. The program expanded to incorporates skills development in basketball, academics, leadership and citizenship. In 2002 I established the Crusader Basketball Inc. Crusader’s 4D’s formula (Dedication, Desire, Determination, and Discipline) has allowed over 300 players to grow and develop on and off the court as well as take their games to the next level.

I was born and raised in Harlem, New York, attended and played basketball at Belmont Abbey College in Belmont NC. Received BA in Business Administration and received my MA in Coaching and Administration in the fall of 2011. Currently work for St. Raymond School located in the Bronx, NY, as a middle school teacher, athletic director and varsity basketball coach.

Clients determine what part of the game they want to focus on.
Ball handling, Shooting, Attacking the basket, conditioning, defense
Skills development is my speciality.

Coach Dennis is a great coach. He pushed me to work harder on my left dribble. I had really good 1st session and I look forward to working with him.

Excellent session!! Would recommend Coach David Dennis to anyone!!

Great session with my son. Highly recommend

Good workout, challenged me and attacked my weaknesses in my game

Coach David is a great Coach! After one session I already can tell he’s going to bring out the best athlete in me, skills wise and mentally. He’s patient and knowledgeable about the game. He sees his athletes and assesses them to the fullest to break down their strengths and weaknesses. I would recommend Coach David to anyone who’s trying to improve their game to the next level.
