More About Coach Jamaal

I have spent four seasons as a high school basketball coach & AAU coach, and 5+ years as a basketball trainer. I use my extensive experience across all levels of basketball participation to mold the physical and mental game of players.

I attended Southern Illinois University, where our team made NCAA tournament appearances all of my four years with the Salukis, including a Sweet Sixteen finish my Senior year. I received numerous awards throughout my college career, including Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year (2007) and Academic All-American. Although I thought my experience as a college student-athlete couldn't get any better, I was honored by being inducted into the SIU Basketball Hall of Fame as a first ballot nominee in 2013. I was also selected onto the SIU All-Century Team in that same year.

After college I signed as a free agent in the NBA and played for a short time with the Atlanta Hawks and Portland Trail Blazers, as well as in the NBA Development League with the Idaho Stampede. I also spent time abroad playing with teams in France, Latvia, Venezuela, and Germany.

My son just had his first lesson with Coach Jamaal and it went above and beyond our expectations. The improvement we saw in our son's shot was incredible. The best was to see how excited my son was after the lesson. I can't say enough good things about coach Jamaal and his coaching style!

Jaamal is a great coach. He genuinely cares about the kids he coaches, that was evident to me after only one session with him. You can see how much he enjoys coaching, and it shows in his actions while coaching. I would not hesitate to recommend Jaamal as a coach. He is very knowledgeable, charismatic, funny, and dedicated to the sport. I can't wait for more training sessions with him for my son Max!

We met with Coach Jamaal for the first time last night. My son left there asking if he can please keep going to him! I can tell Coach Jamaal has a passion to teach what he knows. Thank you Coach Jamaal!! We look forward to seeing you next session!

Coach Jamaal is nothing short of "THE REAL DEAL"! He's professional, knows what he's doing/talking about, stays in constant contact, and was on time. My son hasn't been challenged in a long time, especially since I can no longer get out there and play/practice with him. I'm truly appreciative of Coach Jamaal, and his expertise. Not only could I tell he knew his stuff, but my son responded to his instruction, and I could tell there was an instant bond. With my son's emphatic requests, I will definitely be working with Coach Jamaal again, and will be spreading the word about him to all I know. Don't hesitate to lock Coach Jamaal in for you or your children... you will NOT regret it! Thanks CoachUp!

Coach Jamaal is GREAT..!! He has a very energetic and positive training style. He is working with my 15 year old daughter to help her improve her basketball skill set and after only two sessions, she shows noticeable improvement. His training techniques and drills are the real deal. If you are looking to improve your basketball game with some high quality professional training, my daughter and I both strongly recommend you go see Coach Jamaal Tatum.

Really great coach, inspires me to do my best. Always encouraging and genuinely believes in his athletes' abilities to strive for better. He knows what he's doing and will help you surpass your limits

Coach Jamaal is a knowledgeable, positive, enthusastic coach who has worked hard to improve our son's game. He takes a personal interest in seeing players improve. Our son has never worked so hard, but he enjoys every session with Coach Jamaal and always wants to come back again. Coach Jamaal is a great influence and provdes great training in a fun atmosphere. I only wish we had found him sooner! We recommend Coach Jamaal without any hesitation.

Coach Jamaal has pushed my son to push what he thought were his limits in just a few sessions. He challenges him each time to give him just a bit more. His workouts are hard, but my son says nothing but great things about how he feels about himself when he leaves practice. Positivity - excellent outcome!

Coach Jamaal is the best coach I've ever trained with. I went from hardly playing at all on my AAU team to being a regular starter now." Kailub Norton
Coach Jamaal is the most intense coach I've ever trained with. His constant motivation and ability to get the most out of his players gave me what I needed to play varsity basketball as a freshman this year." - Eljay Gellagos
