More About Coach David

I started playing basketball when I was 6 years old. I played in high school, and won a state championship. I was the MVP of the state tournament. After high school, I played college ball at Bowling Green State University under Coach Jim Larranaga and then for Dan Dakich. I have been playing basketball professionally for the past 13 years throughout Europe. Most recently I was playing in Switzerland. I was with the same team for the past 6 years. I have also played in France, Germany, and Austria. My career has included 5 championships, 7 cup titles, and MVP titles in Austria and Switzerland.

I am willing to work with players of all ages and levels. Your sessions will be built on your skill level and your willingness to be great. Because I have experience in all levels of the game, I have the knowledge to help you become the best player you can be. I want to teach the game and help develop your skills to achieve your goals in your basketball career.

Player of the year, Player of the decade in Cincinnati and MVP of the state tournament.

Client Reviews

My 13 year old was completely surprised by the intensity of his work out. Coach David was very intense, thorough and motivating. We will definitely be returning.

Coach David’s first meeting with my son was impressive. He was engaged with him during the entire session and went through numerous drills while keeping him focused. My 14 year old son was able to grasp instruction without difficulty. Coach David gave him a good workout and my son could not wait to go back because he knows that David is very capable of making him a better basketball player. At the end of his session he had already learned how to shoot better than before. I highly recommend David as his skill set and ability to teach it are grade A. We booked 10 more sessions and can’t wait to see how my son will progress with Dave’s expertise.

Coach David is a awesome coach! He really helped my son gain confidence on the court! Will be booking another session immediately!

First day of my child trying out basketball with Coach David was so rewarding. He made my child to love basketball even more and ready for the next session.
He is professional and experience, the private gym is well equipped and clean.😊
I will write more review as time goes on.

Shane enjoyed his first 1:1 with Coach Dave and is looking forward to future training sessions.

Coach David was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and seems to care about his students. The drills Coach David had my 16 year old daughter do were excellent and my daughter was challenged and had a great workout after her session. I will be definitely signing up for additional sessions with Coach David and my daughter and I would definitely recommend Coach David. Randy Hall

My son really enjoyed the workout he had with Coach Dave. He is flexible and the venue is nice!! We will definitely book more sessions. I highly recommend Coach Dave.

Coach David was really good with my 10 year old son. Coach David really knows his stuff. The facility was top notch!!!!

Coach David was great with my 14 year old daughter. He started her off with a few drills that she can do at home for practice. Coach David was patient & encouraging and taught her correct form during the drills. She felt comfortable and had a great training session. Highly recommended! Thank you Coach David!

My daughter has started training with Coach David recently and she is learning better ways of playing the game. She enjoys working with him. Coach David always responds quickly to messages and calls. She is excited to see what her new skills will bring in the next season.

Great venue. Coach D was an amazing first-time 1 on 1 coaching experience. He definitely knows how to connect with athletes. Walked in the gym and immediately felt like Coach D is the truth.

Coach David was great with my son who is only 7!! As soon as the session was over, my son said "I loved it, when can I go back?!"I highly recommend Coach David!! We will definitely be booking more sessions!!

The coaches and the facility are one of the best we have seen, my son loves the workout they put him through. I can see a difference with my son's speed with the ball but also he's gaining a mental toughness from working through they're training.

I would like to say if you are looking for a professional coach that has professional work ethic . Coach David is your guy, if you want to improve your basketball game and break bad habits learn the correct mechanics. Are you looking to raise your game to the next level for your Son or Daughter look no further.
The facility is geared toward increasing your agility, strength, speed and overall confidence.
Put the work in with David and your rewards with be forth coming. Hands down the Best Coach I have come across.
It would be a mistake to pass this coach up!!!
Try 1 lesson with Coach David, I think you will be glad you did.

Dave was very receptive and knowledgeable. We got right to it in my first workout which was very challenging, but at the end of it...it was exactly what I needed. Haven’t picked up a basketball in so long, which I why I reached out for a workout. Even though I was dead tired, I felt better walking out of the gym than when I walked in!

Coach David was exceptional. This was the first basketball lesson for my boys and they were challenged and worked hard the entire time. The drills were great and we will definitely continue training with David.

Coach David was awesome very professional and very knowledgeable of the game of basketball it wasn’t all about shooting he had my son do a lot of fundamentals. My son is only 6 years old and the level of patience he demonstrated towards my son was was beyond awesome I highly recommend him to anyone looking to excel their skill and knowledge of the game of basketball.

Coach Dave is a phenomenal coach. What a difference in the coaching/training my daughter received from him in just one session opposed to the coaching she received from her full-time travel league. He is the real deal. He's down to earth, relatable and utterly skilled at his profession. Don't pass him up. You won't be disappointed.

My son really enjoyed his session with Coach Dave. Coach brought a different t element to his training with a focus on coordination skills. They were unique and effective. Thanks Coach!

Coach Dave got straight to the point with my shooting mechanics. He is patient, knowledgeable, and knows how to correct the issue(s) his player has. I highly recommend him. Also, has a great establishment. Thanks Coach!

He beat me to the gym and was actually 30 min early. The workout he put me through really challenged me to break habits that I’ve always had since I was young. Looking forward to many more sessions.

Coach David was very professional, honest, and down to earth. It can be a little intimidating for a 13 year old to be coached by someone with such an impressive resume. Dave made my son feel at ease immediately. My son got the opportunity to get a little taste of some of the drills that the “big shots” practice in order to become the best. Not only was this experience top-notch, it was motivational as well as inspiring! I would definitely recommend checking Coach David out if you are looking for the best!

Showing up for our first session I was surprised to find out we had already met coach David at a basketball camp and had already had a great experience. He knows what he is doing, pushes hard and is extremely experienced. I would highly recommend him and his program to EVERYONE. And the facilities are amazing!


Coach Dave challenged my son and also gave him positive feedback. The workout was tough, but my son appreciated and respected Coach's methods, and realized this would take him to the next level with his game. My son is 14 and has been playing for several years, but the drills and workout Coach Dave put him through were different and my son felt like he was really learning something new.

Awesome experience‼️ Very good training techniques. Definitely will be coming back.

He really knows what he is doing and gets you to push yourself.The facility is also really nice as well.

My 12 year old son really enjoyed working with Coach Dave. We will definitely be signing up for more lessons. The facility is awesome. I have already recommended him to other parents on my sons basketball team.

Great coach. Excellent facilities. Can't wait to go back

Coach Dave managed to push the limit of my son, who improved a lot after only 3 sessions. Dave's huge private basketball court (indoor) is an additional plus.

The workout Coach Dave put me through has already helped me to become a better player. I'm excited to see how much improvement I will make this summer! Coach Dave is great!

The workout with Dave was much more than expected. Although Dave himself said he's not reinventing the wheel, his added twist made simple drills challenging. Dave focuses on the player doing the work for the betterment of his game and correcting or tweaking body mechanics. I can appreciate his approach to preparing an athlete to be game ready and explaining how each exercise is used in game situations. Schedule permitting, my son is Dave's new client.

After our son's first session with Coach David, he has already shown improvement. It's so great that he gave him things he can do at home to work on, as well. Our son said he learned a lot in the hour he was with him and he is definitely looking forward to having more sessions. Coach David gives instruction well, he is professional, and his down to earth personality makes it easy for our son to listen and learn from him so that he can improve his game in all areas. All of Coach David's experience and knowledge is a tremendous benefit and we would highly recommend him to anyone!

Coach David is a phenomenal instructor. He introduced unique techniques to my son I never witnessed before. His training techniques are second to none. After his training session, my son was very excited to work on his new tools developed from David's training. I will recommend David to anyone. He is Awesome!

My 13yr old son was looking to improve his game and get in shape - after one session with coach Dave he is feeling more confident and motivated to be a better player.

Excellent session - time well spent. We came in a bit apprehensive. We didn't know what to expect. Coach David is a good coach. He was professional and positive. He really gave my son an outstanding work out, and tools he could use on his own. We will be back, and I strongly recommend him.

Today was my son's first bball lesson and of all the choices I feel very lucky to have picked David.
He was very flexible and we were able to book a practice the very next day.
David's facility is top notch, I did not know my son would have such an excellent one on one practice with a player of David' caliber in the perfect setting.
I honestly did not know what to expect after joining coachup and I was blown away.
We will be back often to practice with David. My son's goal is to make the team at Marist next year and with David's help I know he can get it done.
Excellent coach !
Would highly recommend!

Everything went perfect! Will be scheduling another session.

Coach David is a great, coach he taught my son a lot of things /techniques in his first session. My son said he had a lot of fun and can't wait to have more sessions with him.

Great 1st lesson, looking forward to the next! I like the routine and drills that were accomplished in an hour. My son really enjoyed what was covered, it was an eye opening 60min for him!

Excellent session with an excellent coach! Coach Dave knows what he is doing and got right to work with my son. Very supportive and encouraging. He gave my son a great workout with lots of useful drills to work on at home. We are so glad we had the opportunity to work with him!

Coach David was awesome with my son Jack. 1st session he was able to quickly analyze his shooting, agility, & handling among several other areas and then had him perform several drills geared to these areas which have already achieved improvements. He broke down Jack's shot, made some small tweaks and had him quickly shooting with much better technique and results. Received great feedback on what Jack needs to work on & then excellent coaching and drills to address these areas. A great start! Mike W.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our sons first session with Coach David. My son is looking forward to the next one!

Coach Dave not only runs great drills that having meaning and purpose but also understands how to teach players in a caring and motivational way that makes them want to get home and practice more.

Great start, Coach David is very knowledgeable and communicated well with my son. Looking forward to our next session.

Coach Dave is exactly what we were looking for. He is pushing my son to the next level, breaking bad habits and focussing on form and conditioning. So happy we found him.

Coach Dave was awesome with my son. I seen an improvement with his skills, shooting, accuracy, agility and most importantly, his confidence. I highly recommend Dave for all skill levels. He works well with my son, knows how to encourage and motivate him and how far to push.

Dave knows basketball and loves the game. That really showed when he trained my son. He had him work on everything from ball handling to form shooting. Dave is the real deal and I can't wait to see my son's confidence and game get elevated under Dave's watch.

my son had a great experience with training with you and really enjoyed it I will be in touch for your help to take him to the next level thanks
