More About Coach Donavan

I have been coaching for about 8 years. I started doing skills development for basketball athletes at 20 years old. I have coached a team at middle school level. I am most skilled in development and personal training rather than being a head coach as I feel my expertise is in working with a specific athlete rather than a whole team. I do believe training in a group is good for development but not every session should be in a group. I mostly have worked with college and pro-level athletes so ages between 18-30. But have found interest in working with high school and some middle school. I do not carry any certifications but can obtain if needed.

First person in my family to attend college. I competed at the collegiate level at SSU in northern california. Plagued by injuries was unable to play after a few years at the college level
scored over 2,500 points in high school career
3-point contest winner
most 3 point field goals made in a single game - 13
highest scoring game 62, 78 (summer league)
All-State Arizona
Macdonalds All-American nominee
All-league First team all 4 years
4 year varsity
7th place at disney aau nationals age 14

My sessions are more than just a few cone drills and reps, although they will consist of ball handling to start and mental focusing drills. Mostly those drills are with tennis balls and none basketball equipment. After that we would talk about the players most recent games or practices and what they believe they need to work on. I would then move on to do drills that focus on what we had talked about. My focus is to help my athlete better understand themselves and how to bring out their best attributes. Most athletes believe they must be the most well rounded on the court at all times, this is truly not the case. I believe every player has a purpose and my intention is to find it and exploit it.

Client Reviews

All I did was simple shots from the paint going around shooting 5 shots that I paid 40 dollers for when I could’ve caught those rebounds easily, I’m really not happy with what happen. And I couldn’t tell him the truth I was just staying silent because my parents weren’t with me

Love what you do.
