Client Reviews

JC is awesome. He is fun, energetic and patient to kids.

Carlos is really extremely professional and teaches me a lot of practical techniques that pros usually do in the game with patience and great attitude.

It was a great 1st practice. Looking forward to continuing training with Coach Jean-Carlos

Highly-skilled, energetic coach with a knack for communicating with kids. Definitely recommend!

JC is a great touch. He corrected my shooting form and now I am shooting with more confidence than ever. We also trained on the conditioning and moves that will enhance my games!

Coach Jean-Carlos was great to work with in my first session. He was professional, pushed me hard and showed me a lot of new moves. I would recommend him for all players, new and old.

The first session went well and we came up with a set time of 10am every Sunday as I had mentioned that I work on Sundays and have a tight schedule. But Jean-Carlos continually wanted to re-negotiate our arrangement times. This morning, we were originally scheduled to meet at 10am but he had changed it to 10:20am because he booked an earlier appointment. At 10:03am, when we are already almost at the park, I get a text from him saying he won't be working with us any more. Even though he gave some lame excuse, my guess is that he just had a better offer. It is hard to get kids to commit to a schedule if the coach wont even do so.

Jean-Carlos is very respectful and encouraging of the kids he trains. He knowledge and mix of drills is exactly what wanted. We are looking forward to more sessions.

JC is a great coach. He came up with a training plan based on my game style. Willing to listen to your inputs. Always push you to the limits. We worked on my fake moves, give a lot of contact while training, which helped me to practice in the real game situation. Definite I will work with JC more in the future.

Our son is on an AAU team, and need a professional that knows basketball to help him bring his game to the next level. Jean-Carlos is incredible. He is very encouraging. As soon as he gets on the court, you can immediately tell he knows basketball. He came prepared with a plan for our son to get him going on his training. We will have our son continue to train with him. Highly recommend him!

As my starting point guard I always knew JC would be a coach/Trainer after basketball ! He’s always been my coach on the floor !” - Charles P. Melone III
