Client Reviews

Coach Erick is great with kids. He is patient with the kids as they develop their skills. Coach Erick also demonstrates a good attitude about sportsmanship.

I would highly recommend trading with coach Eric for
First a better understanding of the game
Second a better foot work very crucial in basketball
Third he pushes players to do their best.
Last and more importantly,, sessions are enjoyable .

Very good coach.

He studied the way I was shooting and helped me understand a better way for me to fix my shot and was very helpful by watching the ways I moved on the court and explained the good and the things that I needed to work on

Coach Erick's sessions were so helpful and definitely worth it! His sessions are quick, powerful, and effective. I would definitely recommend Coach Erick!

Very patient. Saw my child’s strengths and weaknesses very quickly. Did a great job working on the things she needed in a creative way.

Coach Erick is great! My son attended his first session and from my experience dealing with coaches one on one, He is at the top of my list. His knowledge and experience will def lead my son in the direction of becoming a strong independent and team player. I look forward to my son working with him and growing as a player overall.

Great guy really knows what I needed to work on after my first session with him really looking forward to our next session I feel like Coach Erick can really help me elevate my game to the next level

Nathan is improving with the knowledge and skills I was looking for . Erick is doing a great job!!!

Great coach.

Erick has done a wonderful job of quickly assessing and determining a starting point for immediate impact. He is also great at building rapport. My daughter enjoys going to sessions and is seeing the benefits on the court.

Coach Eric was an excellent coach. My son said he addressed things in basketball that no one has helped him with before. He left feeling more motivated. Thank you sooo much

Coach Erik is a great coach. First day of training I improved and felt more confident on offense and defense. I would recommend training with Coach E very knowledgeable and teachable.

Coach Is great and in the 5 training sessions I've had with him I've really improved

Erick was an amazing coach! I had my first session last night and I already learned so much! He really helped me with my form. I also learned new skills and improved in areas I needed improvement in. I can’t wait to learn more and become an overall better player! Thank you so much!

Coach Erick is so amazing to watch while training my Daughter. His knowledge, his training technique, his attention to my Daughters weaknesses and strengths while training. Thank you Coach Erick!

Pushed you to do better and be better while genuinely caring for you. Best coach I’ve had and can’t wait to see where he takes me, would highly recommend!

To identify Coach Erick, I reviewed every coach's profile, read their reviews and reached out to each one of them. Coach Erick has been professional and spoke to us before booking which gave us an opportunity to access if this would be a good fit for our 13 year old son. He performed an assessment, gave us feedback of where the starting point will be and specifically how things will proceed moving forward with training. As parents starting, we appreciate the timeliness, professionalism and his care toward safety during this pandemic.

My son is a rising sophomore and got a great work out and feedback during his first session with Coach Erick. We will most likely continue working with him.

The very best! Our son is making great progress.

Very Experienced. Time will tell.

Great understanding coach

I enjoy working with Coach Erick. He’s very knowledgeable of the game and his attention to detail is appreciated. I look forward to more work.

Erik’s professional personal coaching is exactly what our daughter needed to enhance her basketball techniques. He is timely, and comes to each session prepared for drills and skill development.

Coach Erick has helped my son stay focused and greatly improved his shot. My son respects coach greatly and has built on his basketball foundation immensely in only 6 sessions. I would recommend Coach to any player who is serious about getting better.

Erick led a great session with my 14YOA son. Erick is very detailed and communicates with great clarity the steps needed to achieve success. He really went above and beyond the call of duty with my son. My son got a lot out of the session and is excited to keep working with Erick.

Erik is very professional, easy to work with, and very knowledgeable and skilled. I learned a lot as did my daughter. He is also fun to work with.

Erick is a great communicator of basketball technique and patient with my eleven year old daughter learning her shooting skills.

Eric has done a fantastic job helping my daughter get past some lingering back issues.
During this pandemic Erick has made working out virtually creative! Erick not only spent an hour with my son a week but put together a workout plan for him to work on every day (Sundays off!). My son has stated he is fun but serious and very helpful. This organization he has created will help for years to come!
