More About Coach Denis

I have multiple amounts of years coaching children ranging from elementary to high school. I've been able to coach at various schools throughout NYC and even was a trainer at one of the premier youth sports programs in NYC.

I was fortunate enough to play in high school in NYC under one of the toughest high school athletic leagues known as the PSAL. Afterward, i went to junior college for two years playing alongside various players who are either now in the NBA or playing professionally overseas. From then I continued to play collegiately at SUNY Purchase, where I honed my skills and was later invited to play for my national team and compete against other countries in hopes of playing in the Olympics. I briefly played professionally but was sidelined due to a foot injury. Ever since then, I've been using my knowledge to give back to those in need.

The client can expect to get the best workout guaranteed. I like to focus on the player's skill set ,and focus on weaknesses they can turn into strengths. I do dynamic warmups and stretches to start off. After, I would go through a set of dribbling, agility, lay up and shooting drills to see where the player needs help and continue to work on drills that they need the most help. Drills would be done for most of the workout, but drills will be fun and engaging for the player. Aside from basketball, I also focus on strength training and conditioning which is another aspect which enhances every athletes game.

Client Reviews

You cannot go wrong with Denis. He is very detailed and the best at what he does!
Denis is great! He is more than just a coach. He is a mentor, teacher, and goes above and beyond. He has helped improve both of my son's games immensely and they even have basketball scholarship all thanks to Denis.
My 8 year old son loved being coached by Denis. The sport was new to my son and Denis was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic! Just what he needed!
Denis has been very essential in the development of my son's game. He is really experienced and takes the time out to work on all facets of the game to ensure my son success on the court. If you are looking for a sound and fundamental trainer to take your child to the next level, then i highly recommend booking Denis.
