More About Coach Dre

I have trained female and male athletes ages 10-17 for the past 4 years (2014-2018). I have also coached 15u boy's on the AAU circuit for East Coast Fusion out of Charlottesville, Va (former place of residence). Aside from my AAU coaching experience, I have worked mainly on an independent contractor status, but have assisted in coaching clinics/workouts specifically at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA.

I played High School basketball in Charlottesville, VA. For well known preparatory academy (Miller School) that regularly sends several student athletes a year to the NCAA D-1 level. I was the starting PG for the school's first state championship team in 2009.

North Coast Athletic Conference leader in assists (2013-2014) (5.8 apg)

Client Reviews

My 10 year old grandson just completed his first workout with Coach Dre and when I asked him out it went, my grandson said that Coach Dre was a good coach, who made him work, but gave a lot of good positive feedback on how to improve.
I was impressed not only with
Coach Dre 's technical skills, but with his personality and ability to interact with my grandson.

Coach Dre was so great with my 4th grader! He challenged him and pushed him outside of his comfort zone while still being positive and encouraging. His approach gave my son the confidence to push himself harder than he ever has before. And my son is already asking when we can go back! Highly recommend!!

Great session. Will be follow up soon.

Coach Dre Is a positive, interactive, energetic personable basketball coach. My 16 year old daughter came away from her first consultation with him, excited and wanting to work harder. She can’t wait till her next session with Coach Dre.

Great knowledge of the game and great motivator

Coach Dre is for real. I love Basketball but there's no way that I can do for my so what he can. You can see his skills and abilities to teach them.

He is fantastic... full of positive energy and pep. He does not waste even 1 minute of time when coaching and has an incredible work ethic. After just one coaching session he has positively effect my son to such an extent that he is anxious to get to the court each day to practice the new skills he is learning.

My son Jacob was very impressed with Coach Dre and so was I. My son said it was a hard but great work out/ learning session. He is looking forward to more sessions with Coach Dre. We highly recommend. Thanks for working with Jacob.

Coach Dre is a professional.

First, not only is he clearly very knowledgeable but more importantly, he is able to demonstrate and convey it in a way that you understand. No judgment, just leadership. That is a testament to his ability to communicate as well as the experience he has had.

Secondly, I want to mention Coach Dre is someone who can push you to get better and is not satisfied with just having the work be completed but doing so with intensity which fosters accelerated growth. He even answers my questions via text!

Lastly, Coach Dre clearly has a lot of love for the game and that's something really important as a player and as a coach.

After my first consultation, I received really thorough feedback and will definitely be back to follow through with what he personally drew up for me.



Coach Dre pushed me hard while staying supportive and encouraging throughout the hour session that we had scheduled. I really like his approach to teaching the drills and moves. Overall the session was very productive and I learned a lot.

Coach Dre did a great job with my daughter. He was patient and knowledgeable. She learned a lot in just her first session. We look forward to future sessions with him.

Coach Dre was great, my son really enjoyed the experience and I can see where he can help my son at with some of his skills and we plan on booking another session

Coach Dre provided excellent service in our first evaluation session. My son was excited at the end to receive the feedback which as a former coach, I believed was thorough and well presented. Coach Dre took the time to really focus on the technique of fundamentals where all long term success comes from. Coach Dre was both personable but also no-nonsense and ran an efficient process for Connor. We plan on booking more sessions with Coach Dre after the holiday season. - Ray McDonald

Coach Dre was an exceptional basketball coach. My 14 year old son is lacking confidence in his basketball skills. I contacted Coach Dre through the Coach Up App. My son had his first evaluation session with Coach Dre last night. My son is now extremely excited for the training to be underway! He was a newly confident kid with hope for his basketball future after only one session. Coach Dre really gave him a hard workout. He spoke positively, encouraging my son throughout the entire session! We are thrilled to have found a confident, highly skilled, and motivational basketball coach in Coach Dre! We are looking forward to upcoming training sessions in the next few weeks! Thanks Coach Dre!

Great coach. Very nice man. Wonderful communication. In just over a month, our daughter has increased her skills, become more confident, less emotional and more controlled on the court, and has learned necessary drills which she hadn’t previously focused. I would highly recommend Coach Dre.

Coach Dre is awesome! My daughter wanted to give up after the first 10 minutes of training but coach Dre encouraged and pushed her through it. She was so grateful after the session was over and can’t wait to get back out there.

We were in need of a coach that could take our daughters to the next level. We have a small forward/post and a point guard/guard so training needs to be well rounded. Our oldest daughter (junior in highschool) has been getting more frustrated with trying to advance that shes all but given up, after our consultation with Coach Dre she said "that was an intense workout, I was pushed harder with him than I have been in a long time I think he can help me advance! I loved that workout when can we go back?" My youngest had been a starter in elementary ever since she started ball and was starter for AAU, but not starting in her highschool career, she told us "I refuse to sit the bench, that Coach was very knowledgeable, and I was very impressed that he ran with me when I missed a few foul shots, that was personable and running with him hearing him encourage me made it easier " we were very happy with our consultation and his review of our daughters that we cant wait to see Coach Dre again. Very skilled and very professionally put together training, so detailed and nailed it with my girls.
Thanks Coach,
The Bakers

Coach Dre, did an excellent job. His drills were exactly what my son needed. Coach Dre’s experience in coaching and training was obvious during this training session. Every minute was spent evaluating, training, no down time , or wasting time. I would recommend coach Dre, to any parent looking to get their child ready for the next level in their basketball program. I look forward to booking my son’s next session with, coach
