good coach

I have been with Coach George for six months for my 5th grade daughter. Coach George works on the fundamentals of basketball with dribbling, shooting and footwork. He is very kind, patient and a good coach to be around. He will structure the lesson according to the students skill level.

In summary, Coach George knows how to teach basketball for all skill levels and would highly recommend using Coach for basketball lessons.

Amazing coach and great with our first grade son!

Coach George was great, my son learned a lot in the 1st session & is looking forward to the next session already.

Great Coach!
Was very patient with my son, worked on fundamentals. My son learned some much from Coach George. Had great tips. Taught my son everything that was not taught to him by other coaches...Worked on drills to improve his shots. Worked on his foot work, that he was stepping wrong that no one ever picked up. Would highly recommend Coach George. In fact we want to continue more sessions. Thank you Coach George.

It was very nice meeting Coach White today on my grandson’s first training session and we look forward to next week!

Coach George is a detailed. He has really helped my daughter with her free throwshot and in pivoting down low. I am pleased.

Extremely patient and knowledgeable. My nephew is very shy and normally takes time to warm up to people but he didn’t hesitate to follow George’s instructions.

Our 7th grade son had his first session with Coach George this week and really enjoyed it. We appreciate his focus on the fundamentals and look forward to more.

Coach George was the right fit for my 15-year-old son. Throughout the first session, Coach George easily built a strong rapport through his tone and patience. It’s obvious that Coach George has the coaching expertise to improve any player’s level of game, and he’s mindful of drilling fundamentals using an approach that encourages the player to reach for new goals. When I asked my son, “So how do you feel?Did you like Coach George?,” he replied, “It went great. I like the way he talked to me. He just told me what to do and showed me. He was great. When’s the next lesson?” We’ll definitely be scheduling a package of sessions with Coach George.

Coach George has taught my sons very well, I had heard many great things from him, and he teaches a very detailed portion of the fundamentals. Also, he is a very flexible coach, who will let you work on what you struggle. He has great patience, and will give you the right things to practice. Overall, great coach, highly recommend someone who needs a point in the right direction to choose him.

Excellent Workout Session With Coach White! Extremely patient & as well as very detailed with his approach. I had a great time working out with him! Absolutely looking forward to another session in the foreseeable future! I’d highly recommend him as someone to help improve your game!

My son had his first training session with Coach George and I was very pleased on how patient he was. I also really liked how he started with very basic fundamentals. My son can't wait for his next session.

First session went better than expected. My daughter has talked about coach George many times over the past several days, and can't wait to meet again this week. Within 10 minutes of training, you can see that he is an expert at what he does. If you or your child is serious about taking your game to another level, consider coach George for sure.

I was incredibly impressed with Coach George. He worked with my son to help him learn some of the fundamentals. He was patient, focused, and extremely positive during the initial lesson. The next day when I came home from work my son was practicing the dribbling drills that Coach George had gone over with him. My son was clearly enthusiastic about practicing and improving his skills. Looking forward to my son continuing to work with him!

Really enjoyed my first session with Coach George! Great, friendly guy that made practicing fun. I got some great tips on how to improve my shooting and dribbling. I'm looking forward to more time with George!

My daughter is off to school next week and Coach George has helped her immensely in preparing for her first year of college basketball. His attention to detail, his grasp of what my daughter was looking for, and making it happen was great. From working on her shooting technique to making the move to the hoop, Coach was right on the mark.

I would recommend Coach George to any basketball player or parent.

Thanks Coach.
