A typical session with me will differ depending on the player's skills and abilities. Generally, I have the player warm up then perform his shooting, ball handling, and finishing at the rim and last for about 90 minutes.
After that, I start working on what is Key if the player doesn't possess the skills.

1. Dynamic Warm-up/static stretching 10 minutes (foot work
2. Ball Handling Mechanics or shooting Mechanics

Very detailed workout

Coach Guershon knows his stuff. He tailored my son's session specifically his needs. My son was able to dribble much better with just two sessions.

Coach Guershon is a fantastic coach. He is amazingly patient, well-informed, and motivational. He coaches our son from several perspectives which allows him to develop and variety of skills and enhance his passion for the game. He is communicative and after every session we always know what to work on between sessions. In every session we always feel like he is truly dedicated to our son. We will definitely be taking more lessons after our training sessions are complete. Our son is just a beginner but he has already grown so much.

Outstanding coach/trainer

Coach did a really good job of demonstrating moves and techniques that will help James progress going forward. The drills hit many important points and established a basis for developing muscle memory.

Coach G is amazing! He instantly connected with our child and made him feel so excited for the session together! He has an ability to read your kid and their mindset and is able to challenge them while also motivating them in a positive and impactful way. He is awesome at recognizing strengths, areas of improvement, and working with your child on skills and having a great attitude. I highly recommend Coach G for all age levels!

Very knowledgeable and has great patience with young kids. Would recommend for anyone looking to sharpen their skills

Coach Guershon is amazing to learn from—he holds you accountable during the training session and provides in-depth feedback during and after the training period. Furthermore, it is very apparent that Coach Guershon is passionate about basketball and his clients. He is a great coach and provides excellent service!

I was extremely impressed with Coach Guershon (Shon). He has in-depth knowledge of how to play and train kids for basketball. My 12 year old son has played recreational leagues several years running, but with little 1:1 interaction, just never moved beyond being “okay”. After just one session with Coach Shon, we could already see improvement. It was really unbelievable! Shon has a great attitude and knows how to teach in a friendly, encouraging way. Exactly what I was hoping for!

Awesome coach! Coach G is VERY skilled, and more importantly, he is an outstanding teacher. My son loved the session today and is inspired. We have already signed up for another session! We live far away but will gladly make the long drive for another session.

Coach Guershon is very professional and knowledgeable. I was impressed and looking forward to more sessions for my child!

Coach Guershon is awesome!!! He has given my son hope about becoming a great athlete. My son is loving his lessons and looks up to him.. Thank you coach!!!!

Coach Guershon was great. He was very skilled in the drills and techniques he was coaching my son in. I can already tell by our first meeting that he is everything we’re looking for to get our son to where he wants to be. Special thanks to him for a great first session.

Coach Guershon was great with my son! He pushed him hard while giving him positive reinforcement throughout the lesson! My son is very excited for his next lesson!

Coach Guershon really elevated my understanding and helped me improve my skills. He really trained me hard for tryouts and I feel much more confident playing.

J is a coach that train you hard and push you to another level!

Coach Guershon has been great in providing training and new workouts for my daughter. Fabulous job!!

Coach Guershon is a great coach, he applies the right techniques individualized for everyone, at any level, with any skills to put them in great shape quickly.

Very professional coach

Great first session. Took the background info I provided and incorporated it into the drills for my son. Looking forward to more.

Coach G is very professional & knowledgeable about basketball. Gave my son the confidence he needed to keep pursuing his dreams of playing basketball. Taught him some workouts he can do at home. My son was glad he finally has a trainer who loves basketball as much as he does that can help him get better & improve his skills! Thanks

Guershon provided a positive experience for two very apprehensive kids! It was great and I could not be happier! Thank you!
