More About Coach Ferg

I am a Philadelphia native basketball player who has been playing basketball since I was 7 years old. I attended Prep Charter high school, where I played varsity basketball. My team in high school has won multiple state championships in Pennsylvania. Awhile my attendance there, I quickly transitioned to the leader and captain role as I connected with all my teammates and led the team in almost every statistical category. After a successful high school career, I then went on to play Division 1 basketball on a full scholarship at the University of New Hampshire. The position I played there was a slashing to the basket small forward who shot the ball behind the arc also well.

Here at UNH is where I heightened my ability to connect with other athletes younger nor older, and drive them to play harder, to compete, and give their all. As a collegiate team, we would have numerous camps and training with children on the fundamentals, basics, and higher level skills all the time. After UNH and what I would humbly call a great and successful experience on the court winning multiple awards. I then went on to play professional basketball in Europe, Israel, and Asia.

Awhile playing professional basketball and leading teams in Europe and Asia, I quickly had a huge influence on the local children in the surrounding cities. I would go to middle schools and high schools in these foreign countries with an interpreter aside me and give these children high-level one on one training. These kids loved my high-level training and energetic workouts. I quickly have seen progress in each individual throughout the year I played in the country. I have been doing skilled one on one training already in the NH area, and have been quickly developing athletes because of their instant trust of my abilities and background on the court.

What you can gaurantee from a session with me is hand and eye coordination training, skilled ball handling based upon where you are skill wise, a lot of shooting and balance skills, combo moves to get to the basket at will, increasing your explosion to the rim, and high energy.

Coach Ferg is great! My daughter (8th grade) learned so much in just one session! She learned skills and exercises she can complete at home. I would definitely recommend him!!!!

Coach Ferg was great! My stepson who is 13 was nervous going into the session but was smiling and laughing within minutes. When the session was over he asked me why it was only one hour! 😳 He is looking forward to continue training with Coach Ferg!

My son is looking forward to more lessons!

Coach Ferg is an excellent Coach. He has exceeded our expectations. My grandson has shown great improvement after each session and while playing in his league. Coach Ferg also inspires my grandson to try harder and provides him with great feedback! Coach Ferg is not only a great Coach, but also an exceptional young man. I highly recommend Coach Ferg.

Ferg was amazing! My 11 yr old has never worked so hard and enjoyed every minute of it. As soon as the session was complete my son was already asking when we were going back to see Ferg. Ferg is a great teacher and motivator with energy and skill.

Coach Ferg was very professional and went above and beyond to make the most of our session together. He is highly skilled and a great teacher, and was also very accomodating to my schedule. I would definitely train with him again.

My son had his first session with Coach Ferg today and really enjoyed it. He was personable, positive, and motivating. It was a great experience and we look forward to future sessions!

We set up a session with coach Ferg to see what he had to offer for my daughter. He put her through a number of drills from layups to shooting. His attitude was so positive and up beat. He made the session fun and hard at the same time. We are planning on using him as our daughters private coach. We are extremely happy to have found him. I would recommend him to anyone.

Very patient and talented. My son learned and had fun.

My nephew was killing in his last game thanks to you!! They couldn't stop the move you showed to him on Monday, and he used it the whole night! Both left and right hand! Thank you Ferg
I picked my son and his friends up from school yesterday and the whole time Isaac was telling them how he is getting one on one training with a pro who played in Europe and played for UNH. He is so excited that you believe in him and is training him.
My daughter loves going to your workouts more than she likes going to practice. She think your workouts are more beneficial, and says that your energy pushes her to work harder.
You motivate my son to work harder, and he actually listens to you because he trusts your skill and background
