More About Coach Gerald

I coached 5th and 6th grade youth basketball team for the town of Yucca Valley in 2005. I received coach of the year award for Outstanding Leadership, Sportsmanship & Commitment to Excellence! I also have helped coach other Brazilian Jujitsu/MMA students while training MMA for 4 years. I helped coach team "Give it to you Later(GITYL)" to the championship and win in 2009 for LA HOOPZ League. I also parent/coach my kids on a daily basis (ages 5-10).

I've played basketball competitively all year around from the ages 5-present. From 5-12 years old I played for youth recreation and competed in the ALL STARS games every year, from 12 -14 years old I played for Marine View Middle school in Huntington Beach CA, NJB, (National Junior Basketball Association), from 14-18 years old I played for 3 highschools : Ocean View High School Huntington Beach Ca (Freshman A team) , Sophmore year I played for Arcadia Highschool Ca on the Varsity team because of a letter of recommendation provided from Varsity coach Jim Harris OVHS, my Junior/Senior year were finished out at Yucca Valley High School CA on the Varsity team, 2009 I played in LA HOOPZ adult league and we won the championship (team GITYL) and in 2014-15 played for the city of Dublin CA Adult league ( season high 40 pts in a game ). All my years of playing basketball competitively were at the Point Guard position. In addition I always have and still play in pickup games all over.

I want to provide extraordinary sessions for my clients. In order for me to accomplish that I will need to listen to them and find out exactly where they're lacking or what they want in life and basketball. Once I have that information then I can start with focusing on that. I will always include stretching, warm-up, free throws, white board talk(defensive, offensive schemes) but the rest will be variations of defense/offense/rebound drills that focus on what my client wants to get better at in order to maximize their potential during our session time. My practices will be derived from the great UCLA Coach John Wooden's "Pyramid of Success" traits. I will hold my clients accountable to their success.

Great job! Just after one session he took my game up a new level

Wanted to update this review and say that i saw him a second time yesterday and we had another great session. He took my game again to another level.
