Client Reviews

Coach Dre has been amazing for my son. He's been able to connect with him in a super friendly, fun and energetic way, but pushes him to try harder and do better. He's worked with him to build not only his self confidence but also focus on his strengths and build his core skills through a combination of conditioning, skills and drills and play. My son looks forward to class with him and is always asking to book more.

My son loved him. Will definitely see him again.

My sons had a challenging, tough session with lot of fun with Coach Dre. He is just great! Highly recommended for ambitious ballers.

Great coach!

Great Coach and immediately understood how to inspire, motivate and teach!!! Thanks very much,

Coach Dre is a great coach. My son (15) really enjoys the practices. Coach Dre is very patient and communicates well with teens. He is teaching him a lot and all his suggestions will definitely help him raise his game for the coming season. Too bad we are not living the rest of the year in NY so he could benefit from his coaching all year long. But every time we will be in town, we will definitely book sessions with Coach Dre. I would definitely recommend Coach Dre.

The boys were so excited!!!
Best coach ever.
Thank you so much!

Great coach! My son loves the lessons!

great coach, communicative and flexible. The kids loved him.

Dre’s D1 and professional experience really showed. He had great dribbling drills that gave me things to work on and showed me the correct shooting technique that exposed my flaws in fundamentals. He also showed me how to attack zone defense. I highly recommend!

Great communication, shows up on time. Definitely challenges you to be the best version of yourself. I can’t wait to the next session

Coach Howard has great, calm energy and knows how to challenge my kid while inspiring and motivating him. The drills were comprehensive and age-appropriate. The session was fun and intense. My child just wants to practice and learn more. Highly recommend.

Awesome! Super helpful

Great coach real knowledge of the game and great patience on me

Dre is an excellent basketball trainer. We work multiple aspects of a well-rounded hoops game, including ball handling, shooting mechanics, attack moves and post moves. He's patient, and takes the time to explain the what and why of every drill. Couldn't recommend him more.

I really liked working with Dre. He is knowledgeable about the game, personable and tailored the workout to what he thought I needed.

We did several drills that I know will make me a better ball player and he helped keeping me focused on the little things to carry over from one lesson to the next.

Def would recommend to anyone trying to improve

Dre is a great coach and really helped our son get ready for basketball season at school.

Great Coach

Excellent work on fundamentals and made it fun!

Coach Dre is an EXCELLENT private basketball coach with professional playing experience. My teenage son's first session with him was very productive. Coach Dre listened to areas we wanted to improve on, quickly assessed my son's skillset, and thoroughly taught him offensive basketball strategies to improve his IQ. He also corrected flaws in his shooting technique and we've seen his game improve since the first session. We highly recommend Coach Dre and will return again.

Great tips and drills to help improve Joaquin’s shot, ball handling, plays and game leadership. Looking forward to more sessions!

Very informative and helpful

Amazing coach. Really felt like I improved. Worked on shot fakes, and worked on fixing my shot too

Dre was awesome!!

Coach Dre is great and patient , would definitely recommend him !

Great coach

Training with Coach Dre is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; an affable, motivating, patient, and unassuming coach with experience at the highest level. My technique and confidence instantly improved.

He’s a professional, a master of his craft, nothing held back! Coach Dre touched on every aspect, defense, attacks, shooting, the very insightful things you don’t see from the crowd, and then some! He’s passionate about the sport, enthusiastic, focused, supportive, and honest!

Great coaching, believes in the abilities of players! 100% recommend

Great energy. Very knowledgeable of the game.

Coach Dre is on point! Knowledgeable, patient and encouraging!

Very impressed and satisfied with your session I’m definitely locking in for more thank you again🤞🏽🙏🏽💪🏽

excellent coach

This was my son's first time having a one on one coaching session and it was absolutely worth it. Dre was on time and patient as I couldn't find the location. My son woke up with an awful cold and he was very patient and very encouraging. My son cannot wait for his next session especially now that he feels better. I highly recommend hiring Dre coming from recent new customer, no complaints!

Coach Dre was very helpful, careful and very punctual in the work with our daughter. He taught her very practical and useful technical skills. He put a lot of attention in the details when doing a particular exercise.
It was interesting and great to work with him.

Dre is great! He pointed out a few poor shooting habits right away during our first session. His instruction and drills really honed in on improving my weaknesses with my shot. He is very down to earth and task oriented.

Great coach. Gives a wide variety of moves. Is clearly a highly season veteran who understands what actually works in game situations at a high level.

My guy! Great session. Learned a lot from him!

Great work

Great session. Got so much out of the hour and a lot to work on. Looking forward to the next one.

Coach Dre is a great Coach! My 11 yo son felt really good after his first session, motivated and excited to continue. He said he already improved, and he liked how the work out was built into the basketball drills. Coach Dre has a really nice way of connecting, encouraging and teaching! We signed up for more sessions.

Very good coach, always inspires and new skills improved upon. Thanks!

Coach Dre is absolutely amazing. In just the first lesson, he took my son into a whole new level of playing. He worked with an array of drills that focused on areas of playing that must be developed and which no other coach took the time to teach, fix and set a goal to perfect. Also, he’s very professional and engaged with Timmy and work with my son in a caring, committed, firm and fun way. He won’t stop pushing and perfecting and being transparent about areas needing work because he wants Timmy to be the best. As a person and player himself, Coach Dre is extraordinary. Timmy can’t wait for tomorrow’s two hour lesson.

(I wanted to send two photos of their working together — we are happy for Timmy to be in the public photos. How do I do that?)

Great coach, good workout I look forward to another session

Have done one session with Coach Dre and can’t wait to do more !

Coach Dre is a great coach. Can’t wait to see my sons progress after more sessions.

Awesome coach!!!

On holiday from the UK and I arranged two sessions for my daughter at very late notice before we left NYC. Coach Dre was excellent from start to finish. Excellent communication from initial message to meeting on the day. Fantastic attention to detail in the session and the workout was fully planned and tough. My 9 year old daughter loved the training and it’s such a shame we live on the other side of the world and can’t have regular training! 5 stars all day long!

Dre is the best. He challenges kids without being mean. They want to earn his respect and work hard.

Coach Dre is awesome. Knowledgeable and experienced in basketball. He can always tell you what to do and why you do so.
He pushes you hard but he's always fun to work with.

Coach Howard was amazing! I lack words to say how great it was. We feel very lucky to have found him and having my daughter to learn so much in such a short time. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is really serious about learning the game. Thanks a lot coach Howard.

I love working with Coach Dre. I play in young professionals leagues and reached out to Coach because I wanted to dedicate time to improving my game. He's helped me to expand my skill set and exposed me to several nuances that will be valuable for a long time. Additionally, he has a great repertoire of drills that I can use on my own time to keep the process going. Coach Dre has the right balance of pushing you while not going over the top. I fully recommend him!

My son has only had one session with coach Dre, he is extremely happy, and will continue his training. As a parent I am impressed with the quick responses to my questions and the attention to any of my concerns by Coach Dre. He is wonderful and willing to accommodate your needs.

Very good coach. The first session is more on the assessment test to see what kind of player you are and who you want to be. Looking forward to more training with dre

Coach Dre is a great coach, he is very patient with my son. My son has taken well to his instructions and feedback. Great Coach!!!!
