More About Coach Derrick

Derrick was mentored by the 2010-2011 Los Angeles Lakers staff. He spent the 2011 summer scouting and developing athletes with the Lakers. Derrick has coached both JV and Varsity girls and boys High School teams. Derrick has six years of experience as a personal trainer.

Derrick received a D1 scholarship to play at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He earned two starts as a freshman in the NCAA tournament which unfortunately ended in injuries which cut his playing career short.

Sessions are individually tailored to attack specific areas of the game that needs to be addressed. Whether training individually or as a group, players can expect to compete against personal records, directly with others, and in some situations against their trainer.

Derrick was great. He took the time to ask what my son's goals were and then tailored a workout to fit those skills. My son has improved not only his skills, but his workout routine and habits based on what he an Derrick worked on. Highly recommend.

As soon as my son stepped onto the court at his first session he immediately went to work. Derrick identified many problem areas and has helped my son correct them. If you want a coach who will actually stop you in your tracks, show you what you did wrong, how to do it right, and drill you until you do it correctly then Derrick is definitely the right coach for the job. He is patient and knowledgeable and will help you become more fundamentally sound. He's very dedicated to his trainees and generous with his time. I already see my son becoming a better player. Coach Derrick is the real deal!!

Jymon has worked with Derrick twice so far. He is working with careful planning and insight to what Jymon needs to work on to improve. He is all business during workouts, and takes this position seriously. Derrick has been doing a very effective job.

The last workout, with video explaining things was just superb. That is absolutely a great teaching tool. Brent Garretson - Jymon's grandfather. Lifetime high school basketball coach.

Coach Derrick has been great for my two boys. He has helped them improve on their skills and abilities. I would recommend him. Scott

Coach Derrick is excellent! I have had my boys work with him now for a few sessions and you can already tell a difference. They told me; "He's great, he really knows what he is talking about." I have personally watched Derrick at work coaching and noticed how he is an expert in his field and his enthusiasm for basketball shows while teaching. He makes it fun and challenges each player to do their best! My kids came away sweating and smiling.

Great coach! My son always has fun with the workouts, and the improvement is amazing! Well worth the time and the small investment.

Just had one session had some good mechanics to work on. Looking forward to next session

Coach Derrick has helped our son make huge strides in his skill level and more importantly his confidence on the court.

I have had the privilege of being able to work with Coach Derrick and just from the couple times this year training with him I have already seen major improvements in my game. I truly see Derrick as a humble, smart coach/trainer who really enjoys the game and loves teaching the game as well. He really just wants to see everyone he trains improve everyday and that is willing to push themselves to their limits and strive to become the best possible athlete they can be. If I had to choose any trainer/coach I would say Derrick is a perfect fit to helping athletes get to the next level.
