More About Coach Derek

Currently the Boy's Varsity Assistant coach at LuHi(Long Island Lutheran). I have been coaching/training for about a decade now with a specialization in player development. I have worked with athletes from 2nd grade and up to the professionals. I am currently the player development coach for LuHi who is a national ranked high school program where we send multiple d1 kids to college each year. While working with youth athletes, I like to focus on teaching the fundamentals of basketball along with building mental toughness and life skills as well. I have worked for numerous AAU programs and have actually founded my own program this past year. I have trained athletes who have attended the following colleges: Indiana U, LSU, Uconn, Dayton, Stony Brook, St.John's, Kentucky, etc.

Alongside NBA player Tobias Harris, I won the NYS Federation class A championship my senior year of High School at LuHi in the 2008-2009 season. Before attending LuHi, I attended Lawrence High School and started playing Varsity basketball as a freshman. I was honored all conference my first three years at Lawrence before transferring to LuHi. I then competed at the D3 collegiate level at SUNY Brockport. I played and started all four years and finished 4th all time in assist in Brockport Basketball History. I also led the conference in assist for two years.

During a session with me, a client can expect a high energy and passionate coach that truly wants them to learn, get better, and have fun while doing so. During my workouts, I focus on all aspects of the game: Dribbling, fundamentals(pivoting, jump stops, etc.), variety of different shooting drills, attack moves with counters, in game movements, and more !

Client Reviews

I have had the pleasure of knowing Coach Derek Klein for a long time. He is a brilliant coach and trainer. He is kind, patient, positive, and full of encouragement. He is extremely diligent and pays a lot of attention to important details. He has helped my son with mastering very advanced skills while at the same time increasing his mental strength on the court. I highly recommend Derek to any player who wants to improve their game . Derek is a top notch coach who has helped my son tremendously over many many years, and for that I am forever grateful.
