We attended our first session with James this past week and I came away very impressed with James' approach and his demeanor. We have been to our fair share of skills development trainers, but James was the first one that really honed in on footwork, taking proper angles to the ball, and small technical nuances. In addition, he kept my son and I appraised at all times as to what he was doing and why for each exercise. I look forward to having my son work with James in the future and would recommend him to anyone looking for a trainer that is invested in the development of your child and extremely knowledgeable as to the game itself.

Coach James was awesome! After just one session my son learned a ton... we will definitely schedule more sessions with Coach James. I would recommend him to anyone.

Coach James, should be called King James! Excellent mentor with exceptional basketball skills and knowledge for the game, my boy learned about footwork and shooting skills, what a improvement on his first lesson. Will definitely sign up for more sessions.

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.

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. His scientific approach to Strength and Conditioning was instrumental in injury prevention while improving athletic performance of our players.
