I can’t say enough about coach Fergerson. He has an incredible way of immediately relating to his student athlete. My son is enjoying his time working with him so much and benefitting with each and every session. Coach Fergerson is very invested in the growth of the athletes he works with and it shows. Highly recommend!

Fantastic. Wish we would have worked with coach Fergerson sooner.

Variety of workouts each time. Incredible knowledge of the game and extremely easy to talk to.

Wow - Coach David is an excellent coach, teacher and mentor! Just after one session, he gave my son a ton of confidence in ball handling, shooting and basic basketball skills. It was a non-stop session for 60 minutes and then some fun time at the end - perfect session! I would highly recommend him. We look forward to many more sessions with Coach David!

This was my first experience training with a coach, and it was amazing and unforgettable. I had a great time with coach David because he stepped up my game and pushed me beyond my limits! I appreciated all of the drills he taught me and will for sure practice it in order to use it in my game. Also, I loved how we played some HORSE after all the drills. Overall coach David is the perfect coach to train with!

Coach David is a fantastic coach! He is encouraging and positive. He builds on strengths and helped my son become more confident. He provided tips my son could use outside of training sessions to build up his ball handling skills. My son immediately had a connection with Coach David. He is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him as a coach for any player beginner to advanced.

Amazing First session, Lookin forward to continuing the grind with him!

Awesome coach - first time with Coach David. Love his approach and style. My daughter is 9, he was very effective at explaining and working with her. He focused on the fundamentals, repeating the skill to let it sink in. Will be going back for sure! Thank you Coach! Fantastic first impression.

Coach David was great! As a parent it's important to feel good about the person you are trusting. He asked questions about my son's background, what his plans are and exactly what we wanted to work on and improve. He also provided suggestions and immediate insight. He was flexible with our schedule and location, as well. Great experience.

David is very good coach. My husband really liked session. Highly recomended.

Coach David was great at our first session. Not only did he take the time to figure out exactly what both me and my son wanted to work on, but he also added some complimentary drills to reinforce. Can't wait to get to our next session!

My son had his second session tonight. Coach David does a wonderful job! He pushes the kids to work their hardest in an encouraging, positive way. He uses the time very efficiently.

I am extremely happy to have had me son Joey train with Coach David. He taught Joey some valuable skills and was always professional. I would highly recommend Coach David to all . Thanks again and it was a pleasure working with you.

Great coach! Working with my son to prepare for travel tryouts and has really upped his game! Coach David brings the right mix of experience and skill that motivates young players to push to the next level!

My first session with Coach David went very well. He assessed my skills and gave me tips that I had not received before. I felt comfortable working with him and am scheduling additional sessions. I will definitely recommend Coach David to anyone who wants to up their game.

My son just had his second training session. Coach David is a terrific coach. He is very knowledgeable having played and coached for so many years. His workout of advanced drills really pushed my son to fine tune his game. His insight in explaining why you are doing a certain drill helps a player understand from a game standpoint what you are trying to accomplish. He works the kids hard but makes it fun too! I would highly recommend him if you are serious about basketball. RJF

Coach David is an awesome coach. He works well with my son, has a great attitude and energy about him. My son loves going to workout with him. He pushes him and makes him work hard but also compliments him when he does well. He has a way of just seeing what my son needs to work on and points it out and my son changes the form and gets better right away. We have benefited from the sessions so much!

Coach David is a great coach!! My son has been training with him for almost a month and we already see a difference in him as a player. He seems to be much more confident! We plan to be with Coach David for a long time!!! Wish we would've found him years ago!

Coach David is exceptional. His approach to the young player is a great mix of establishing fundamentals, player confidence building and having fun. My son always looks forward to his sessions with Coach David. Although my son walks out in exhausted he always wants to come back for his next session with Coach David. I look forward to watching my son's skill and confidence grow.

Coach David put my son through a great workout that elevated his skills in the very first session - AND his confidence. He has a positive approach that reinforces hard work, mental approach to a workout and the game etc.

Coach David is fantastic! My son is a sophomore in high school and we have been looking for an individual coach to help him excel especially in his weak points. Coach David is professional, easy to get a hold of, and his coaching techniques, drills, knowledge and skill in training are a game changer for my son. I have been recommending Coach David to all the other parents who ask me about training. We are so thankful for Coach David. He makes Bo work hard and constantly encourages him and challenges him.

Coach David is a great coach, he definitely finds out the areas that my son needs to work on to make my son get to the next level and has great drills to push my son to work hard and efficiently and leaves my son pumped for the next session. Would definitely recommend coach David.

Coach David has the ability to show athletes how to put in hard work and have fun at the same time. This balance allows for them to focus on skills needed to excel as players with perfect form. After just one session my son has the confidence to shoot the ball because of the footwork and ball handling he learned during his session.

Coach David did a great job pushing my sophmore high school son to get him to the next level with challenging drills, and motivation.

Coach David exceeded our expectations. My son said he learned more in one lesson than he learned from his baskerball season. My son is over the moon excited for his next lesson.

My son is always excited every week to train with coach David. We've been to a lot of basketball programs but i think coach David really understands and teach techniques that will benefit and really work on the weaknesses and improve the strengths of a player. Ive seen improvements with my son with his skills, game IQ and confidence. I highly recommend Coach David!!

Coach David is just what my 14 year old son needed. Being a perfectionist, he's thorough, teaches fundamentals that makes his games efficient, stronger and quicker. Coach David also challenges my son in a way that he actually loves to work hard. He sweats and after every appointment he's tired tired but stoked about his next lesson. Coach David will be a coach that I plan on using for as long as my son plays basketball.

Coach Ferguson is an awesome coach who knows how to teach the necessary skills to become a successful basketball player. He knows how to communicate concepts clearly and he encourages my son to be the best that he can be! My son can not wait until the next session!

Nick loves David! He has learned a lot from him and has gained more confidence in his game!

Coach David has been a great coach. He identified early the shot elements my daughter should work on, explained and demonstrated little fixes for her. He also came up quality drills to assist. His positive approach with small adjustments has been a great learning experience.

Coach David was great and my son got a lot out of his lesson. He was clear with his instructions and showed patience with my son. I would highly recommend coach David.

Coach David is making my 7th grader's time with him a wonderful combination of fun and effective. We're really enjoying these sessions and we're very grateful to David for his help.

Coach David is amazing! He is so patient and positive and really knows his stuff. My son's game and confidence is soaring after just two sessions!

Coach David works on the fundamentals first. He listened to what both my son and I wanted out of his training. His first session with my son already has had an impact on his performance. He is a positive coach and expects 100% effort, but makes it fun. I would recommend him to anyone.

Coach David was great. He assessed my daughters weaknesses and built the workout based on that. Coach David also noticed where my daughter was strong and challenged her to perfect it even more. He also showed my daughter the true art and form of shooting. She used what she was taught in her very next game and did great.Those results came from just one training session. We will continue to train with Coach David because I know he will get my daughter to the next level. So,if you want a Coach that is dedicated and professional check Coach David out....

Coach David has been great! He's done a good job working on the areas that needed improvement we've seen great results after only two sessions

We were looking for a coach to prepare my son for 7th grade tryouts. Coach David F. understood there was a short time frame and squeezed in 3 sessions. We saw great improvement in skills and confidence. Our son received more skill lessons in these 3 sessions than in his 6 years of park district/parent coaching. Coach David kept it fun, was easy to schedule and a pleasure to work with.

Coach David F was terrific! Very knowledgable, asked what we wanted to accomplish, good communicator and an excellent experience. Worked hard but made it fun. We highly recommend him.

Coach David was a really great coach! After one session i feel more confident in my game! He really improved my jump shooting already! I really recommend him! He is very patient and a confident booster! Also gives good tips and really fixes what you are struggling on!
