Coach Jeff is an outstanding Coach. Extremely patient with young players, yet pushes them to be and do better. We saw huge leaps in our sons basketball skill improvement as as result of working with Coach Jeff.

Coach Jeffery is great!! He’s patient and knew exactly what to do with my son!!!! He’s awesome!

Coach Jeffery was positive, patient and fun. We will be returning for more lessons.

Coach Jeffery made me feel confident about my abilities and progress during the session. Furthermore, he pointed out my strengths and weakness that even I wasn't aware of, adjusted my shooting mechanics, and overall he was patient throughout the entire session.

I look forward to working with Coach Jeffrey again soon.

Coach Jeffery worked with my 11 year old son on very short notice over the Thanksgiving week. We discussed what my son needed to work on and Coach Jeffery designed the practice time to meet his needs. One hour is never enough, but Coach Jeffery gave my son many tips about playing defense and two new drills to work on. I love the opening prayer and he constantly encouraged my son and made sure he had plenty of water breaks. In between, it was all business, with hard effort and lots of sweat. Coach Jeffery is the perfect mixture of skills, talent, and old school hard work. My son couldnt stop talking about Coach Jeffery after we left. It is so wonderful to have another positive male role model. We will be back!

I loved working with coach Johnson. He’s a great teacher and pushes you to do great. I will continue to work with him.

5 Star coaching session, my son loved it and will be going again

Coach Johnson knows his stuff! Works on making the total player. I highly recommend!

Coach Jeffery was awesome with my daughter. I love the way he works the skill, technique, body, & mind. He don’t just teach how to make a shot, but he helps to understand the importance of the form & position. My daughter’s confidence has gone up after the first session. Thanks Coach Jeffery!

Great coaching session. On my son’s first session, Coach Jeffery provided knowledge about the court, conditioning, and basic basketball skills. Coach was very patient and made sure my son understood what he needed to do and how to do it and gave reason if needed. He was very encouraging and was great with building confidence within my son.

Amazingly, my son, who doesn’t like to run, wants me to book more sessions (as I shall).

Highly recommend Coach Jeffery. He is a fantastic trainer.

Coach Jeff was easy going informative and straight to the point. Right off the back he taught my son some quick basic but important information about the basketball court. After that a great and solid stretch and flex workout. Finally finding out what my son strengthens and weaknesses are. Overall great training and ready to lock in many more.

Coach Jeffery was amazing with the kids- his time, skills, patience, knowledge. Last week was my son's first training, and I think I loved it more than he did!!! Will absolutely sign up for more sessions, and definitely recommend him to others.

My son has only had one session with Coach Jeffery so far, and he really enjoyed it! My son has trouble focusing and staying on track, but Coach Jeffery did an excellent job keeping my son engaged during the whole session! We will be booking more sessions soon!

Amazing Trainer And Person . Understands The Game & Has More Confidence In You Than You Have In Your Self . I Know Without A Doubt I’m Going To Achieve My Goal .

Great coach. my granddaughter loves him. Seem improvement in her games and knowledge about the sport.

Coach Jeffery is a great coach. His training is right on point and practical.

Really enjoyed the coaching session today provided by Jeffery. He is very patient but detailed with instructions at the same time. I like how he breaks down the rules on the court for child to have a better understanding of the game. I will continue to use Jeffery as my son's coach and excited to see the improvement overtime.

Coach Jeffery was a very motivating and talented coach.
He has a laid back but assertive coaching style that is very useful especially with children that have shy or calm demenors. My son can be very timid sometimes and coach Jeffery was able to keep him engaged and confident during his 1st session. The session was very useful to prepare my son for his schools basketball tryouts.

Coach Jeffery is a both a great basketball coach and life coach!!

Excellent coach!

Great first session! Coach Jeffrey not only worked on fundamental basketball skills with my son but also on building confidence and character development. Looking forward to many more sessions!

Great first session. Coach Jeffery is thorough, patient and clearly loves the game. Highly recommend. My daughter wants to come back soon.

If you are looking for a BB coach, look no further, Coach Jeffery is awesome! When my 11 year old daughter asked if she could play basketball, I knew I had to get her a coach to learn the fundamentals. After joining CU, I was connected with Coach Jeffery with absolutely no regrets. Yes, I admit, I read all of his reviews prior to booking and just as others have said he really is the best! He has patience with a calming spirit while pushing her to her highest potential. Initially, I only wanted one session to prepare her for tryouts however, after tonight she's going back for more training.

Top notch trainer!!!!

Coach Johnson did a great job on our first session and challenged Jackson. Looking forward to the rest of the Summer.

Before my son's training session with Coach J, he was reluctant and unmotivated. After his session, he stated that he was eager to learn more basketball fundamentals from Coach J. Thanks, Coach J for your patience and dedication to the sport. We will definitely book more sessions. H. Presley

Coach Jeffery did a great job and is a very professional coach with great integrity.

Very patient and thorough. I saw improvement in my sons confidence level by the end of the session.

First, this was me and my son first time to experience a personal coach. And It was MORE then what we expected. Coach Jeffery was GREAT... He first explain to my son that basketball is not just physical training but mental training as well. You have to get the mental aspects and nutrition of it all. He went over everything that I told him my son had issues with and things he seen such as footwork, how to handle the ball, dribble, basic dribble moves with passing, and shooting correctly. My son can't wait until his next training!!!

Coach Jeffrey was wonderful. My nephew felt so comfortable with him, that he wanted me to book more classes instantaneously. I personally was very impressed with his attention to detail. After one session he was able to give my nephew feed back on his strength and weakness. Which my nephew truly loved. The principles and foundation of which coach Jeffrey teaches was truly demonstrated in his session today.
My nephew and I both enjoyed his first session.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lesson today. Coach Jeffery was great with our son both on the court and with self decipline. Highly recommended. Thanks.

We have been very impressed with our initial sessions with Coach Jeffery. His sessions are very organized and preplanned. His work out session at the track was very impressive. He focused on stretching and technique while pushing for the best effort. His positive attitude and calm voice strikes a great balance with the intensity of the sessions. We look forward to future sessions with Coach Jeffery.

Coach Jeffery was absolutely awesome! Loved his philosophy and training techniques. I could already see a noticeable improvement in my son's ability in just one session. Truly amazing! Highly recommend this coach....wish I knew about him a year ago!! A game changer!!

My daughter had her first session with Coach Jeffery this past Saturday, and we could already see major improvement in her skills. He was well-mannered, respectful, and very passionate about his job as a training coach. I think he did an awesome job, and look forward to the next session!!!

Our sweet little 2 yr old loves basketball, and we just couldn't find any programs for his age so we looked into Coach Up. Jeffery was patient and did a great job with him. He helped him learn how to dribble, pass, shoot, and move side to side for defense. He loved it! We were so happy to start and end with prayer and look forward to continuing to bring our little guy.

He was professional he made learning and playing the game of basketball fun for my eight year old son

Coach Jeffrey had a plan for what he needed to accomplish in the session that was tailored to my kids' strengths and weaknesses. He demands discipline, but offers praise and encouragement when the kids tried hard or performed a drill correctly. He is a great Christian role model for kids to emulate. I recommend him without reservation.

Coach Jeffery's basketball clinic was a great experience for my son. He is very patient when working with the kids. My son has only done one session of training and the clinic and I already see improvement. He has a long way to go but with the help of coach Jeffery he will get there.

Jeffery is a great Coach! My son had his first training session last night. He loved it. We stayed and watched them train. The drills and skill training will definitely be raising my sons' game. I highly recommend Coach Jeffery.

My daughter enjoyed working with Coach Jeffrey. I saw improvement after the training session.

Coach Jeffery is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He quickly bonded with my son and directed him through his first workout. His instructions were clear, the drills were on point and his manner was simultaneously encouraging and demanding. We look forward to future sessions.

Coach Jeffrey was very professional and knowledgeable about the game. My son saw improvement in his shooting after the first session!

Wow!! Wasn't sure how much 1:1 coaching would help but I was amazed!! Coach Jeffery really delivered!! His approach of building the player in mind, body and spirit is the perfect balance. My son is almost 6'7", 15 yrs old, body bigger than him. In just one session he was smoother and more in tune w his moves. Coach brought to life his place on the court. Had a 'fall ball' type game this am and several comments made on how Jon was really going for it!! Coach is up front about what he expects and came across in a way that made Jon work harder!! Jon is painfully shy....lets just say less shy now!! Teaching in all manners is a gift and calling and Coach not only knows the game inside and out but has a true gift for teaching young men in a way that they listen!! I would highly recommend anyone no matter what skill level your at or age to spend some time w Coach. 5++ Stars!!

My son loved working out with coach J. During the first session coach showed him proper shooting form and he made 25/27 shots after that. My son is looking forward to the next session.

Jeffery is an excellent coach. I learned a lot even just after the first session.

I have a 9 year old son he really enjoys the instruction from Coach Jeffery. Not only is he learning about the fundamentals of basketball he is learning life skills as well.

Coach Jeffery is patient and encouraging throughout the session. I think any young man will benefit greatly from Coach Jeffery.

(no details provided)

Coach Jeffery is an excellent trainer!! After only one session, I already see a difference in my sons skill level and over all performance. Coach Jeffery opens and ends each session with prayer. He stressed the importance that one should never cheat in anything that he/she do in life. The techniques and drills that Coach Jeffery uses are techniques that are used by colleges and professional athletes. I am very pleased with everything that Coach Jeffery had to offer to my son. Well worth the two hour drive, I will be booking more sessions with him!!

Coach Jeffery was awesome! His approach to coaching is positive, firm and honest. My son absolutely gained from his time with Coach Jeffery and eagerly awaits his next session.
