More About Coach Emanuel

⭐️ #13 Coach in Florida Basketball for CoachUp

☑️Been involved in team coaching since 2013, been a skills trainer since 2014, but I've been in love with the game since I was just 5 years old.
My experience includes:

🔺JV Head Coach for St. Francis Catholic Academy and Varsity Assistant Coach.
🔺Assistant Coach for Thunderstruck travel basketball 8th grade elite team since 2016
🔺Assistant for Wolfson High School girls team in 2013

☑️USA basketball skills development coach certification 2015 & Gold certification in 2017

☑️B.S. in Sport Management from the University of Florida.

☑️Sports operations for Santa Fe College Men and Women's teams and University of Florida Women's basketball team.

I have trained many types of athletes, from beginner players (5-13) to collegiate level athletes (17-22). I am able to help any athlete develop, as long as they love the game of basketball.

☑️My competitive playing days ended in high school by junior year. After making junior varsity my second year in high school I lacked the courage and confidence to even try-out for varsity the following year. A mistake that I learned from and hope to teach others to NEVER do something like that.

☑️Confidence and mental toughness are among the many psychological factors of the game of basketball that are just as important as athleticism and individual skills. Without the ability to persevere in tough times, be determined enough to outwork your opponent, or have the confidence to continue believing in your game after a few mistakes, you
❌CAN NOT❌ be a elite basketball player, and you may also struggle in tough times in life. That is something I didn't fully grasp in high school and it hindered me from reaching my goals on and off the court.

☑️I now make it my mission to teach others to believe in themselves, and develop confidence and mental strength that they can get through any tough time on and off the court. In my years of training athletes, I have found that all many people need to reach their full potential, is someone who believes in them.

☑️Despite never playing past the high school level, I work on my basketball skills and knowledge daily. I do this to help aspiring athletes by pushing themselves to realize that they can be as good as they drive themselves to be. I believe in this, on and off the court.

All of my training packages offer Personal Training and Development.

☑️What personal training means to me, is developing a relationship with every athlete, and keeping sessions intimate. All group sessions are kept to 1-6 maximum coach to player ratio to keep all athletes with that intimate feeling that the coach cares about EVERY ATHLETE'S development.

☑️In addition to that, I also focus on preaching about mental toughness along with every skill drill. Whether we are dribbling, shooting or defending, every athlete makes a mental decision to give their all, or what they THINK is their all.

☑️As a coach I can always tell who the tougher athletes are and those players are the ones that end up playing the most. No coach wants an athlete who gives up because they're down by a lot, or wants to stop playing during the biggest moment of the game because they're tired. ELITE players push through tough times, and all my players understand that. #BecomeMoreMovement

Great workout great interaction with us broke everything down step by step will be going back

My son and his friend totally loved the training session with Coach Manny. The drills were varied and he was good at focusing on basketball skill development while making the session fun for 12 year old boys.

I love how he is pushing my son, because my son has a tendency to fall back because he's good.

It was a great workout! I'm looking forward to keep working and keep getting better! We did some drills to get to know each other, and for you to know my strength and weakness. Nice!

My son really enjoyed training with Coach Manny. He recognized my son's weaknesses and strengths and worked on improving both during session and made suggestions of what to work on at home for weaknesses. He was attentive and utilized every minute of training with useful skill practice.

Coach Manny was great and helping me adjust my jumpshot and motivating me to work harder. I'd give him a 10/10, and can't wait to work with him more!

Coach Emanuel did a great job and convinced me the training for my son will definitely pay off in the near future. I like how he's a coach that wants to build self esteem and commitment. Very confident in the work that's coming.

Coach Emanuel demonstrated a positive and encouraging approach during the session. Immediately after my sons first session, I could see an increase in his confidence. He is looking forward to strengthen his game.

Coach Emanuel was amazing. He made me feel comfortable right away. I came away from my session feeling a lot more confident about my game. Coach's passion for basketball is palpable. Definitely looking forward to my next session.

I was glad to see my son implementing the techniques Coach Emanuel showed him during training sessions, but what I am most impressed with is the boost in confidence my son is now demonstrating on the court! The one on one training sessions exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Coach Emanuel! Thank you!

Coach Emanuel is very attentive and was genuinely interested in helping my daughter progress with her training. His feedback was helpful in that he let her know her strengths as well as things that she could work on for improvement. He was also very clear in his future plans with her training and took the time to really assess his and her own goals. We would recommend him to anyone and can't wait for the upcoming sessions!

Coach Emanuel was a great coach. Very patient and dedicated to teaching me the game and making me better everyday. Definitely recommend him over anyone.
