Coach James has been working with my son now for two months. He is a Freshman in High School and never even touched a Basketball until he signed up for the team last fall. He secured his spot on the bench all season yet ended with a love for the game and a determination to improve. Weekly sessions with Coach James is having a profound impact on my son. He is learning fundamental basketball and will likely be a starter on the JV team his Sophomore year. Coach James is on time to the sessions and always brings a BIG smile and a GREAT attitude. His positive influence on my son as a young man is more important than the lessons. If you are considering hiring a private coach for your son or daughter, Coach James in your man!
I’ve had 5 sessions so far with coach james, and each time I get better and plan on coming back for more. He does a great job pushing your comfort zones to improve your game in areas you didn’t even know needed improvement.
Great session with James! Very personable, and his knowledge of the game are obvious. Olivia thoroughly enjoyed the session and feels that James can certainly help her grow. Can’t wait for June when we can work more closely!!
Great coach, he really focuses on your weaknesses and helps you make them a strength of yours. I have booked him more then once now and will continue to book him.
I had the pleasure of working with James Shettleworth for 5 years. He was consistently professional and always had students best interest in mind. He was an excellent Academic Advisor, going the extra mile to make sure the students got what they needed to be successful.
I’ve known James Shettleworth for close to 30 years having watched him play at perennial power house Peoria Manual High School, all the way through College, and his stint playing in the minor leagues and abroad. I would feel more than comfortable entrusting my child under his guidance. He brings a high level for personal and professional ethics which produces quality citizens of society. A class act in all aspects.
I had the chance to observe James Shettleworth in a leadership role as a Head Coach. The one caveat that stood out to me was how fundamentally sound his players were. A student of the game, he prepares student athletes for life well after their playing careers have concluded. I can rest assured when he sends me a player, they will be prepared for rigors of being a Collegiate Athlete on and off the court.
Coach Shettleworth served as an Assistant Coach to me for 6 years. During that time we won two 5A State Basketball Championships. He was instrumental during that time overseeing the Player Development and Strength and Conditioning aspects of our program. We amassed a 124-11 record during that time as he was a catalyst in the placement of players to the next level.
Going through Player Development that me and Coach Shettleworth did made the transition from High School and AAU to College Basketball a much easier process. Working on game moves and situations gave me more confidence in practices and games when I was competing against older College players. His player development program definitely prepared me for playing at the Collegiate level. I highly recommend Coach Shettleworth for anyone looking to take their game to the next level.
I would like to provide great feedback on James Shettleworth in his excellent Basketball and Academic coaching for my son Kamrin Vincel. This year he is up 8 points per game from last year, and currently averages 25 points and 12 rebounds. Kamrin is one of the top rated players in the state of Colorado (5A states largest division) at the moment (c/o 2018). James demonstrates excellent work ethic and coaching on both Basketball and Academic advising!
Thank you Coach James for all you have done. We really appreciate your expertise in which Miles has benefited tremendously.
Training with James has helped my son Joe improve not only athletically, but mentally as well." Erika Matich
