More About Coach Dorian

I have worked with multiple High School teams; I tend to train athletes that are looking to put in the extra work to become great. Many years helping local Youth Basketball Camps and College Camps has help me learn many ways to teach kids this wonderful game of basketball. My purpose as your trainer is to help you develop better fundamentals for a better on court experience. As the athlete you are responsible for your effort, focus, and application. We work together to Get Better, Not Perfect. With a growth mindset, mistakes are our best teacher. When we train, do your best, forget the rest!

Alumni of Harrison High School were I was a McDonald's All-American & also once held the All-Time Leading Scorer Record. Graduated in 2005 with a record of 80 Wins & 13 Loses over 4 years playing Varsity.

Finished two years at Sheridan College were I became an All-American my second year & helped the team reach a National Tournament Appearance my freshmen year. My Freshmen Class still holds the record for most wins in two years.
Spent some time at Lewis & Clark State were I was averaging 20ppg

Had a great showcase at the American Basketball League Draft Camp in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Following I was predicted to go first round in 2012 American Basketball League Draft. Received great feed back from Marlon Minifee former player of the NBA Minnesota Timberwolves, also spoke and received great feed back from American Basketball League Owner Steven Haney.

DLeague: Idaho Stampede (Try-Out) (Denver,CO)&(Boise, Id)
Received very good feed back from coaches and former players. Didn't make the final cut for the training camp.

I recommend all my clients make a 1-year commitment to this program.

Athletics can expect training that will push them to become better every day, we build the foundation for athletics to become great at every aspect of the game. Ball handling, shooting, defensive and offensive footwork, passing, and rebounding are some of the elements of focus during these sessions.

Repetition is the mother of skill. My goal as your trainer is to optimize our sessions to get you as many reps as possible. I build fundamental skill from your feet (Footwork, Triple Threat) to your hands (Shooting mechanics, Passing, Dribbling) to your mind (Basketball IQ, Attack Mentality).

Client Reviews

Coach Dorian is a perfect match for both our daughter’s basketball performance growth! Both struggled with shooting and not only has their shot improved, they both are getting stronger and more confident! Coach Dorian is a good communicator.

Great Coach! Works to improve weaknesses and helps the ball player to become a better team member which then turns into more playing time. Just an all around great person that helps to inspire the athlete to the next level. Uses personal examples and known College and NBA level examples to drive better performance out of the athlete. Focuses on the basics and being a role player on the team which continues to drive self dedication into something bigger. My boy got bite by the bug and he just continues to work and work! Coach Dorian sees the bigger picture and starts helping shape that mold! He knows what he is doing! Trust his science!

Great coach definitely shows what you improved on.

My daughter loved her session! We will be scheduling more!

Will point you in the right direction and helps you gain confidence in your self.

After one session my daughter has a new mind set on how she approaches the game. She has been practicing everyday at home on her own. She has more confidence and now realizes how important practice is.

Excellent first practice! Excited with what is next.

Great Coach. Patient, knowledgeable, and personable. Would recommend.

Coach Dorian is awesome. Julius really connected with Dorian and worked harder than we have ever seen! I took Julius to the gym and he was already using skills he learned in session one!

Coach Dorian gave my son a good amount of fundamentals that he needed. He is a great coach and all around nice guy. Scheduling can be a little bit if a challenge but hes worth it.

Since Dorian was recommended by a couple people we know, we decided to have him train our 13 year old son for his upcoming basketball tryouts. We've been very impressed with his focus on fundamemtals and in-game scenarios. In addition, while running drills, he has incorporated an element of cardio to further prepare our son. We would highly recommend Dorian to take your kids to the next level!

Best basketball training there is .... Dorian knows what he's doing and knows how to individually prepare you to be the best player you can be.
Dorian has mastered the best ways to train great basketball players like you, it was super fun training with him, and I improved my skills a lot. I would definitely recommend basketball players train with him.
I had 3 parents come up to me after tonight’s game commenting on how much Christian has improved. They said it was like watching a different player than a few months ago! He played almost the whole game and I was very proud watching him. Thanks for all you have done and will continue, its paying off.
