As a assistant coach at Southwestern Assemblies of God, I was responsible for individual player development . I worked with the post and also the guards. My player development training included:

Attacking the basket off the dribble
Moving without the basketball
Post moves
Dribble penetration


Davila Middle School Head Basketball Coach.

During my tenure at Davila I was the girls head basketball coach. I also had a after school program where I taught junior high boys the fundamentals of the game.


Jane Long Middle School girls assistant basketball coach and Head Basketball Coach of the Jane Long Movement basketball club.


Jane Long Middle School assistant boys basketball coach .

My duties included working closely with the guards. I specialize in teaching players how to shoot, dribble and read the game of basketball.

I was voted a 4 time all-conference point guard. I was also voted as one of the top players in the 2000's at Southwestern Assemblies of God University. I started 58 consecutive games at Ranger College. During my time at Ranger, I led the conference in assist during the 2006-2007 season. I also finished top 10 in scoring and steals. I was nationally ranked in 3 different categories in 2008-2009. Steals per game, assist per game, and assist to turnover ratio. To learn more about my stats you can google Gerren Hamilton or go to dakstats.com I also was a member of the Harlem Ambassador Travel Basketball team. During my time as an ambassador, I played around the world and spoke at many different stay at school, say no to drug assemblies.

When training with me you can expect me to really focus on the fundamentals of the game. I also teach young basketball players how to read the game. Reading the game and mastering the fundamentals are my two key components. Once my clients have mastered the fundamentals of the game, I will move on to more complex moves. I am big on attention to details and I teach the correct footwork on dribble moves. I also deal with the mental aspect of the game of basketball. As a trainer, I'm a firm believer of building my clients mental toughness. Apart from being mentally tough players cannot reach their maximum potential. I would love if you come out and train with me.

The goal is to always get better.

My son had his first session with Coach Gerren and he loved it. I noticed coach was very patient with my kid which took a lot of pressure off of him. My kid was shooting underhanded when he first started his session and by the end he had learned to shoot the ball the correct way. Great job Coach Gerren!!!!

Great coach

Coach Gerren is an excellent coach.
His sessions, style, and pacing will take you to the top.
He studies you carefully and then develops a technique to spur you into greatness.
I will recommend him over and over again. He is simply the best!

After only 1st workout, I see improvement in my son's ball handling and confidence in driving to the hoop. Coach Gerren is very encouraging, patient, smart, and clearly is experienced in coaching! My son is looking forward to the next workout. I highly recommend Coach Gerren to be your trainer.

Great session!!! Kids worked on their game while enjoying themselves. Coach really did a great job for my kids. I would 100% Recommend!!!

We had our first session and it went well! I could see a difference form the start of the session to the end and he was patient and very knowledgeable. Looking forward to continue training for my son.

I'm 30 years old and trying learn the fundamentals of basketball. Gerren has been a tremendous teacher and coach. He's patient, but firm, and doesn't let you give up on yourself. His training has helped me significantly impove my game, especially shooting and handling.

Coach Gerren is really helping my daughter develop her playing skills. I can already see the difference in her fundamental play after just one session. Really impressed by his coaching style. Awesome coach!

Excellent teacher very knowledgeable and patient.

Coach Gerren is a great coach! He is very nice and provides constructive feedback in a postive manner. He really helped my daughter with her shot mechanics and by the end of practice she was already shooting with more confidence. She can't wait for more sessions and excited to see how she progresses in the future. Highly recommend!

It was an AWESOME session with my son. Worked him hard and you could tell that my kiddo was taking in all the info that he was being taught. We look forward to more sessions. Thank you Coach.

Excellent trainer

Coach did a great job teaching my son new skills especially the counter moves. We were quite pleased with the coaching session!

Although I wasn't there for my sons first session he came home and told me how much he learned and how Coach Gerrens attention to detail and focus on fundamentals really helped and made him understand his position a lot better. Definitely booking sessions on a more regular basis.

Good teaching of basics. Good iintensity and attention to the student

Gerren is an excellent coach and my son is learning fundamental skills from him. His drills are well structured for technique development and his patience with my son makes the sessions more meaningful.

Coach Gerren after the first session you have already had an impact on my son and his aspirations to play basketball. We are looking forward to the next session and other sessions as well. Great feedback during practice.

My son had a great training session with coach Hamilton. He learned a lot and he’s looking forward to the next.

Coach Gerren is the best coach we ever had.

Coach Gerren was great in assessing my son's strength and weaknesses. He tought him the fundamentals of ball handling and how to "Read the Defender". This was our first session and my son is already excited about the next training.

Super patient, I appreciated how Coach Gerren spent the time to work on the details. It takes someone with an intuitive sense of what a child needs to get better, and Coach Gerren was great. Immediate improvements seen. First session for us, but won't be the last.

Coach Gerren is so patient with my son. My son has never played basketball and Coach Gerren told me don’t worry I got him. After two sessions you can see the improvement.

My son worked out with Coach Hamilton only one time for now, and I liked the fact that he had my son focus on the fundamentals of ball handling. He was enthusiastic and corrected, and repeated.

I even discussed with Coach about location and he advised he would consider other locations.

He appears to be a good trainer with a prepared plan going into a session.
I look forward to seeing him work with my son in the next session.

Great experience the coach was very friendly and very professional.

Mia loved to training and energy, coupled with the fact that coach can do the same moves effectively he is asking his trainees to do. Great skill training and high IQ.

Just finished my first session with Coach Gerren and it was great. I'm a much older guy who is looking to improve his game and this session showed me that it is indeed possible. Coach Gerren observed and corrected areas that I've been doing wrong for 20+ years of playing casually. The changes I applied to my shooting immediately showed better results.

I highly recommend training with this coach!

Great coach and an even better person. He took the time to listen to my needs and tailor a plan to help me build on my deficiencies. I highly recommend Coach Gerren. Thank you!

Great first lesson!

He's an excellent coach! I highly recommend him.

Understanding, experienced and willing to work hard for you. 10/10

The training was awesome. Great Coach! My son asked me to rebook him with Coach Gerren specifically. He's even got confidence now. So grateful.

Coach Gerren was great with my 14 year old daughter! She only has one year of basketball experience and with his knowledge and tips she is definitely improving!

Coach Gerren is a great coach! He's patient and thorough, and my son always wants to have another lesson the very next day!

A great first session and looking forward to many more!

Coach Gerren made his lesson fun. Dribbling practice isn’t always the most interesting, but Coach Gerren used fun and active drills. He took the time to learn my son’s current position and suggest other positions he should play. Coach Gerren is very knowledgeable on the basics and has a great eye for making corrections to shooting stance.

We can’t wait for more sessions.

I'm 24 yr old in between beginner-intermediate level. I've already noticed improvement in my game. I'd recommend Coach Gerren to any level player, he's great!

My son is only 9 and is just starting to play. He wanted to get better, so we signed him up with Coach. Today was only my sons second session with Coach Gerren and I already see a big change in him. The last game he played his confidence was evident as he started getting into the game and participating more. Coach has done an amazing job working with my son.

My sixteen year old son really connected with Coach Hamilton. In my sons words "he is very interactive", "he did not just tell you what to do, he would show you what to do and how to do it effectively" His drills were impressive".

His 90 minute session went very well. My husband also liked what he saw and the work being put in. We will certainly book him for future sessions and look forward to training consistently.

I would highly recommend to have Coach Hamilton work with your son or daughter on their basketball skills. My son had his first session today and he really enjoyed it...he talked about each of the drills on the way home and what kinds of things he's going to continue to practice with his team next week. Coach Hamilton seemed to really care about the development of my son's basketball skills.

(no details provided)

I have never seen my son with such a huge smile on his face after practice with Coach Gerren. He’s excited about basketball and he’s looking forward to working with Coach Gerren.

Coach Hamilton coaches all aspects of basketball, but I sought him out because I read he was patient and kind. We asked him to focus on shooting specifically for the first session, but plan to use him for more types of training as well. He helped my daughter with her shooting form and we saw immediate results in the hour we spent with him. We plan to book more sessions later this week.

He’s an amazing coach who helps you with your fundamentals and helps you with your jumpshot too. His drills are high leveled if your ready for it. If not he takes his time to teach the basics and then he does more extreme workouts as time goes on. All around he’s a great coach if someone wants to get better at basketball.

Coach Gerren was such a inspiration for my son , after loosing his father last year it’s been real tough on EJ , but just after one session I could see a glimmer in my son that made my heart so Happy , I’m looking forward to Coach teaching Ej many more basketball techniques!!
Thanks Coach

Coach Gerren was awesome! My son is working hard,learning a lot and attaining goals! I highly recommend Gerren to anyone wanting to improve their skills. Thanks coach!

Coach Hamilton is the best coach I've ever met before. He knows what to do every time. He was always nice through out the whole training. When i do something wrong, he explains what I'm doing wrong and teaches me to make corrections. It was definitely a great experience!

My son really enjoyed his first session with coach Gerren. After just one session my son learned so much and was ready for the next session! What my son liked most was how coach Gerren would keep working with him till he got the skill right. I highly recommend coach Gerran he is very knowledgeable, patient and motivating!

My son had his first session with Coach Hamilton and it went great. He gets right to work and my son really enjoyed his training. Coach Hamilton definitely has the experience and his training and drills really help target my son's weaknesses. We will be booking more sessions with him.

Coach Gerren was a Great Coach!!! My daughter learned Alot from him on the first session! She was so excited and cannot wait for the next session. I would recommend Coach Gerren to any parent that is looking to Advance their child in taking them to the next level in basketball. He is very Professional and straight forward. He don't waste no time getting to the point on working on whatever area needs improving!

Coach Gerren is a fantastic motivator. He is extremely knowledgeable and will go out of his way to make sure his clients understand all aspects of the game. He is always switching each session, each week ,adding new plays, foot work, and scenarios plus incorporating previous lessons learned. Coach Gerren listens to his clients and sharpens the skills necessary to be a star basketball player. His passion is parallel to his excellent coaching capability.

Thank you Coach Gerren

We look forward to a undefeated 2017-2018 season

I loved the work out with him. He's great at what he do.

Coach Gerren was absolutely terrific! The attention to detail was very impressive, namely footwork and body dynamics. We also received some nutrition tips, which were very helpful. We will definitely book more sessions and look forward to seeing how far our little guys talents can go. Thanks for a great session!

Coach Gerren is awesome with kids of all ages. He even included little brother (age 9) with older brother's (15) coaching session. It's easy to see he's had a lot of experience coaching kids. He's immediately able to focus on the fundamentals that our player is needing to master. We are so lucky to have him in town. We're looking forward to our next one-on-one session and to bring our friends to some of his 2 hour skills classes!

coach gerren is a good coach prepareing my step son with the skills he needs to become a advanced basket ball player

Coach G was absolutely wonderful, the session was great, his ability to motivate my daughter and push her beyond what she felt she could do was good to see. The drills that they did wasn't over complicated but exactly the level of traing my daughter needed.

Coach Gerren Hamilton has been awesome with our son, pushing him to work on his skills and develop new techniques all while building confidence in himself. We've had three sessions so far and I know our son can't wait for the next two. We would recommend Gerren to anyone looking to help their son or daughter develop their basketball skills.

My daughter really enjoyed working with coach Gerren. Coach Gergen is a very hands on coach and he was working out with her the entire time leading by example. I really appreciated that he actually showed her many of the skills by also doing them along side with her. My daughter enjoyed the practice so much she is looking forward to the next time she works with him.

Gerren Hamilton is a very detailed trainer.
