More About Coach Fred

I have been coaching basketball at the high school level for 15 years. 14 out of the 15 years my teams have been to the Section playoffs in California. Led Encina to Section Runner Up and State playoff games. Helped lead San Juan in my first year to a 18-10 season after they went 8-21 the previous year. I am a USA Basketball certified coach and work various events and camps throughout the year. During the summer I work with ProCamps and they put on basketball camps for many professional basketball players. I had the privilege to work with Steph Curry, Kyrie Irving, Harrison Barnes, and Ben McLemore. I conduct various open gym sessions for collegiate and semi pro basketball players; during that time we refine their skills and work on physical fitness & conditioning. I train and develop all age student athletes year round. Basketball is my ministry and I believe strongly in life lessons through this gift of basketball. Currently pursuing Masters in Sports and Performance Psychology to better my coaching and training techniques, with the hopes of gaining my PhD in the same field. I want my clients to be sound mind, body, and soul.

I will work with the athlete for 60 to 65 minutes, focusing on intensity, composure and enthusiasm. My professionalism and training will continue as I follow each athlete at their respective schools and teams, and will provide sound feedback as they continue to grow each season. I will give the very best of me to help develop a better student athlete on and off the basketball court.

Client Reviews

Great working with coach Fred. Looking forward to more sessions.

Excellent coach! Good energy, so I immediately want my daughter needed to work on to become a better varsity player. I highly recommend him

Coach Bryant is great! Very patient, can really relate to the kids and does a great job with training

After 1 session I already saw improvements in my shot and ball handling and it showed when I played

Love working out with Fred. I like how he focuses on the details, and also my weaknesses. Always good to have somebody like Fred in your ear if you wanna get better.

Man, today went better than expected. Coach fred was real patient with my son as today was my sons first day with Fred. Coach Fred went over start up drills with my son and working on fundamentals at my sons pace. I am glad that we got to meet coach Fred today and I see my son training with Coach Fred as long as coach fred still trains.

Thanks coach

My son wanted some tips to improve his game. Coach Fred gave him pointers as well as some drills that he and his brother can run together at home.

Coach Fred was very patient and organized for my son’s first session. He already learned a lot just from one session!

Very knowledgeable and experienced, my son and I really like him. I look forward to seeing my son improve with Coach Fred’s training.

My son says that this is the best trainer he has ever encountered and he wants to continue to meet with coach on a regular basis I also feel he is exposing my son to a lot of good things about the game that he did not know

Had a great time working out with coach Fred! He is patient and professional. Looking forward to working with him in the future!

Great trainer, great person, and an unstoppable move that nobody knows about💯

Coach Fred is awesome we plan to continue working with him until the boys are out of high school. His skills are immediately apparent he is very patient with young men and really encouraging. Both of my sons thoroughly enjoyed their time with him. I appreciated Fred providing each one with a unique program right away. My sons are very excited to continue working with Coach Fred and are so happy to have a coach that knows how to bring the best out of them. He is extremely professional and excellent at communicating with my sons as well as with me. We all enjoyed knowing what the program was during and after our session.

Great focused workouts!

Coach Fred has done an amazing job working with my son Jacob. I appreciate his technical approach to specifically assess his individual needs and create a plan for him. I highly recommended him, it’s hard to find quality people and I feel fortunate that I found Coach Fred to work with my son!

Great coach. Helping my daughter refine her skills.Major improvement in just 3 sessions.

Great session with Coach Fred! Can't schedule the next session fast enough.

Coach Fred was awesome! My son responded well to his coaching style. Taught him a lot in a very short time! EXCELLENT

Coach Bryant takes the time to evaluate client's skills then directs his coaching based on areas that need improvement. He is patient and encouraging. Confidence is built by breaking down the drills so that the client is able to experience success.

Thoroughly impressed with Coach Bryant. He ran my daughter through some very innovative drills, immediatley found a flaw in her shot and corrected it. My daughter enjoyed the session and wants to go back again!

Fred is a knowledgeable coach who relates well to my 10 year old. Through observation and asking questions to understand strengths and weaknesses, Fred tailored trainings to focus on needed skill improvements. Any focused and hardworking player would improve their game working with Fred.

Coach Fred is an amazing trainer. Personally I was looking for someone to raise my game to the next level, I found coach Fred and he’s pushed me harder than any other coach. So if your looking for improvements on all parts of your game coach Fred is the man for you.

Coach Fred is very talented and knowledgeable, and works extremely well with young people. The skills he’s been teaching our granddaughter will absolutely improve her game.

The first training met and exceeded Andre and my expectations. He gave Andre 8-10 new things to put in his basketball toolbox. It’s up to Andre to practice and use them. We are looking forward to future practices.

My little brother had such a wonderful first session with coach Fred. Within one session he fixed his shot tremendously. He was such a personable and knowledgeable coach about the game. We look forward to many more sessions with Coach Fred to take my little brothers game to the next level.

My 12-year-old son Jimmy just finished his first training session with Coach Fred, and I can assure any parent that it is money and time well invested. Because of the lack of qualified basketball-specific coaches in our area, we drove the 100 miles to Coach Fred hoping for the best.

We were not disappointed. Coach Fred gave Jimmy time to warm up on his own to get comfortable with the surroundings, while also allowing him to evaluate at what level my son was operating. Within 10 minutes Jimmy was embarking on shooting drills, but much more happily and with far greater focus that he would for his former college-player dad, (me). A few simple tips to bring a much-needed focus on a higher shot release were offered, and Jimmy was shooting with success with a much-needed more elevated release and higher arch within 20 minutes.

Dribbling and footwork drills followed, and in time Coach Fred was (in his words) pushing my son out of his comfort zone to see how he would respond. But he did it with encouragement and support and reason - always explaining that he knew what he was asking was tough, and for Jimmy not to get discouraged, but that by asking for additional effort through trying that which is difficult, true improvement happens.

He even closed off the session by showing Jimmy a interior post and counter move that he can't wait to use in his Rec League game this weekend. Pure Kobe Bryant - Jimmy was gassed!

Yes, we're going back, and hope to continue for months to come as Jimmy pursues his dream. Parents - you are of course invited to stay and watch, so no worries there at all. If you as a parent have a background and reasonable skill in basketball, you can certainly start the process of learning and playing and instilling a love for the game as I have tried to do with Jimmy, but I do believe - that after a given length of time, we need to let our kids learn from a qualified coach who is current with today's game, who demonstrates great skill, and who understands the learning process.

Coach Fred Bryant has my highest recommendation. I'll update this review as Jimmy moves forward.

Coach Fred was very approachable and easy for my 11 year son and I to discuss his needs. Coach Fred takes the time to evaluate the player. From there the training starts. My son said Coach Fred gave him the best 1st one on one training ever. Then wanted to make sure I booked more from him. My so

Coach Fred was very good with his ability to make my son feel comfortable. He never played basketball before and now has more interest due to Coach Fred's positive attitude and emphasis about my sons strengths vs just his weakness. The 1st session was VERY informative and I plan on buying a package now as my son will be going into HS and wants to play for league as well his school going forward. Thanks!

I highly recommend Fred Bryant to any youth wanting to learn or improve on their basketball goals. He is attentive, recognizes and corrects small details which makes a huge difference in a kids game. Thanks Fred!

Coach Fred does an outstanding Job relating to my son. My son is not a very confidant kid and since he has started working with Fred he really is feeling much better about himself. The technical side is the best I have seen in a long time also. Money and time well spent!

My son was excited to get started with the training. When it was over, I asked him if he wanted to continue with Coach Fred or try another trainer. He gave a resounding, "Continue with Coach Fred." Coach Fred was very encouraging during the training session. He corrected when needed, and praised when warranted. I noticed a difference not only in my son's physical ability, but in his confidence. If it was up to him, he would work with Coach Fred every day of the week.

My son plays HS ball and coach Fred has really helped him with his overall game. We feel like we have gotten our monies worth times 10 as Coach Fred's experience as a player and his years of coaching makes an unbeatable combination. He is extremely professional and patient. He really knows the game and we are lucky to have found him.

Coach Fred did a great job understanding my sons personality and areas of needs, while expanding his strengths! He is passionate about basketball and it expands to the kids he coaches. He was patient yet focused on bringing out the best in my son. My son enjoyed his sessions with Coach Fred and looks forward to continued sessions. The feedback we received was valued and encouraging. He has done a great job building my sons confidence and skills! Thanks coach, we will see you again soon.

I had a blast learning new techniques that I can take home with me. Coach Fred has a lot of patience and knows how to critique me in a way that helps me understand how to improve my game!

So Far, so good! My daughter has only had her first session but Coach Fred has proven excellent so far! Super communication as well. Looking forward to the future!

Today my son had his first session with coach Fred. When I asked him how was his experience he said that it was the best experience he has ever had training for basketball. Coach Fred gave him few great pointers that my son is really excited about. Thank you coach Fred. We will definitely book more sessions.

My son had his first training session with Coach Fred and he LOVED it. The first words out of his mouth were, "Mom, he knows so much!" He is very excited to continue training with him this summer. My impression is that Coach Fred is caring, humble, and extremely knowledgeable! We are thrilled to have found him.

Coach Bryant was great with my son Robert. He kept his attention the entire time, and Robert can't wait to go back.

Coach Fred has really pushed Robert to get better. The more he succeeds the better he feels. His ability to push Robert is amazing and his patience level is out of this world. Robert is very lucky to have found coach Bryant.

He was really good, he pushed me till I collapsed and showed me how hard work pays off, recommend 100%

Definitely a good session with coach Fred. Not only did it get the blood pumpin and sweat drippin, but he helped me develop some valuable skills i can take to the court.

A great coach! He was super supportive and encouraging! My son loved his first session and is ready for his second. I found it to be really positive yet also physically demanding for him. Amazing.

Coach Fred took time to assess my skill sets and focused on the areas that need improvements. I can tell my game has been improving thanks to Coach Fred.

Knowledgeable and very nice. Looking forward to working with coach Fred more.

Coach Fred is an amazing coach! Has different ways and different drills to help you improve as a player. I would 100% reccomend him to any person looking to improve in basketball. As he is improving me to go from a high school level to getting scholarships from colleges

My son has been playing basketball for a couple years now. He loves the game but wishes he could do with out the practice. After just one session he loved working with Coach Fred. Coach Fred provided an honest assessment of his abilities and an overview of what to expect moving forward. We definitely look forward to working with him more!

We couldn't be more pleased with the coaching sessions our son is receiving. Coach Fred is not only extremely knowledgeable about the many layers and complexities of basketball, but he has been very effective in how he approaches teaching our son. Our son is excited and engaged, and truly enjoys, learns and improves from sessions with coach Fred.

Excellent coaching techniques, passion and a he pushes my daughter to get better.

Thanks Fred

Coach Fred is patient with Kendall and always encouraging her in her drills. He also infuses the concept of fun to help her understand the total concept of sports.

My 9 year old son is on a basketball team full of talented athletes. I turned to Coach Fred to help build his confidence before the season began and that is just what he did.

(no details provided)

Coach Fred was knowledgeable, had drills that will help me become a better player. He showed me new techniques and I had had fun at the same time. He has given me new motivation. I am looking forward to our next session!

Great workout, new dribbling and shooting!

My son doesn't realize it, but he is a good basketball player. Coach Fred in his first session made him realize that anything is possible if you work for it. He helped build his confidence and given him the tools to improve his game. He looks forward to every session and plays his heart out. We feel very fortunate to have Coach Fred as a part of our team. You will too.

Coach Fred helped me expand my game a lot the two summers I worked out with him. He really helped build my shooting consistency and ball handling, while also helping me strive to become not only a better basketball player, but a better teammate, leader, and person. He was always there for me whenever I had questions about my recruiting process or just when I was in an athletic slump, it was during those times that he kept me focused and motivated.
I would say Coach Freddie workouts are intense and very helpful. He helps players with dribbling skills and also breaking down opponents. His drills are very fast and tiring so it can make the players feel like game speed. Coach's workouts are not the same everyday because he throws different types of drills and that makes it exciting. Overall, this guy does everything possible to make me a great player and individual. For that I thank him!
When it comes to individual skill work and workouts, Coach Fred is somebody that I've always went to. The drills he put me through from my sophomore year until my freshmen year of college definitely helped my game a lot because the training are specific, fun and intense at the same time so they transfer very well. At the beginning they might be challenging, but coach helped me and a lot of my teammates get through the workouts and we all saw the improvements in our games. That's why up to now when some of my friends who play college ball or pro ask me who they should train with in Sacramento, I always say Coach Fred because I know what he teaches works and I always trusted him because he played at level most of us aspires to reach one day.
Working out with Coach Fred was definitely a key to my development as a student-athlete and as a young man. I have worked with many different trainers and I can honestly say that Coach Fred's workouts have been the most impactful on my life and my game as a player. The environment of his workouts is very welcoming and I feel very motivated at his workouts because everyone is encouraging each other and trying to get better in whatever ways possible. My favorite part about working out with Coach Fred is that he treats everyone the same no matter age, size, skill. I love how he genuinely believes in everyone he trains!
