Great first session with lots of tips for my boys. I like the way coach James changes up the activities during the session. The boys were not bored at all and kept practicing drills they learned when we got home. Highly recommended.

Coach James has done an amazing job teaching my son new drills, improving his game, and most importantly giving my son his confidence back. Coach was really flexible to our schedule and was willing to meet us any where. I highly recommend coach James.

Coach James covered a lot in an hour! My grandsons confidence grew in just one session!

Coach James is great to work with and our son is really enjoying is coaching sessions.

James has done a great job with my son on his basketball techniques. My son enjoys all his sessions with him. He actually looks forward to working out now. I recommend James in every aspect of coaching and physical fitness.

We have been really pleased with Coach James. We have seen a huge improvement in our son's skills. He is literally outside every day without hesitation practicing to prepare for his next session with Coach James. I have been told and have accepted that I am a picky person and I would highly recommend him!

Coach James is a wonderful coach. He was very knowledgeable and easy to work with
