If you are looking for a coach for your child, Jermaine is the coach! My son’s confidence has improved and he has also improved on his basketball skills! Worth every time and penny.

Jermaine is great coach helped breakdown the drills we did perfectly

Coach Jermaine is great with young kids and gives his full attention during the coaching session. This is important as my son is young and needs that one on one attention in these early stages of development. Very happy with his coaching style, very encouraging and keeps the athlete working hard all session. I recommend him to anyone looking for an attentive, skilled, and hard-work coaching session.

Coach Jermaine is extremely personable. My son’s first session was amazing. He learned so much in the first hour. Well worth the drive. I have been to many coaches in my lifetime but hands down coach Jermaine is awesome! He really knows how to push the kids just enough to give them confidence. Can’t wait for the next session. Great first workout. My son was exhausted. Lol

Coach Jermain was great. My son felt a good connection with him.

Awesome session, would definitely recommend training with Coach Jermaine!

Great first workout, it was intense and he really pushes you.

Coach Jermaine is a very good and professional coach, he is my first basketball coach and I believe he will be the best one I met. Training with him is the absolute best choice!

Great coach!! Has pride in what he does & skill.

We have finished 10 sessions with Jermaine, and he is really good for developing fundamental skills for our 9 year old son. We have seen great improvement in basketball after the 10 sessions. Would continue to work with Jermaine and highly recommend him!

Great coach, has elevated my game in just an hour and motivated me to work harder. To him it isn’t just a job, he loves what he does. Overall recommend Coach Jermaine.

Great coach. Work on my son's overall game and strength.

Good coach

Coach Jermaine is just a tremendous coach. I can't say enough about how his enthusiasm and passion have really driven my daughter to want to succeed even more. The workouts are challenging and he pushes athletes outside of their comfort zones. It's clear working with him builds elite athletes who are determined.

Coach Jermaine is highly recommended for his dedication and patience.
My son is extremely happy after the first class and motivated to continue.

Our daughter really enjoyed her first session with Coach Jermaine. When she got home she had to show me everything she learned and can't wait to go back for her next training session.

I would definitely recommend Coach Jermaine for players of all levels. Being a complete beginner along with my younger brother, Coach taught us the value of fundamentals and pointed out the small details that people generally miss but makes all the difference in terms of learning and appreciating sport of basketball.

Coach Jermaine is punctual and professional in his conduct. I have a lot of respect for his dedication and love for the sport.

Be prepared to work hard and enjoy the learning process.

I was very impressed with Coach Jermaine. He got results from my daughter in just 30 minutes and this was her first session. When he says perfection, he means it. He assessed her ability and knew exactly what drills were relevant. I watched my daughter’s confidence grow in her abilities. Thanks Coach.

My son has been enjoying Jermaine's sessions. He has a firm and fair approach to basketball, and helps train your child to want to do better, without them losing the love for the game which is great.

Thank you coach Jermaine !

very good coach

Coach Jermaine is a dedicated individual who has a true love for basketball. He clearly loves what he does and takes pride in passing knowledge of his skills on to others.

Coach Jermaine is very knowledgeable with the sport. I am 100% novice with basketball and with that he make sure that i get all the basics. He also make sure that I learn each move in precision and covers the reasoning behind it. This way you get the full understanding of the entire thing. He sees the things that needs improvement and he makes sure to push you to your limit for you to improve and learn new things in each session.

Very good.

Thanks for the great session Coach Jermaine. Ethan working with you one on one will help unlock his potential and intensity as well as tie everything he’s learning in his Skills Academy and Rep practices together. Looking forward to the upcoming practices!

Jermaine is an awesome coach! A self-proclaimed basketball nerd, he not only understands the fundamentals of the game, he understands the "why" behind them - and is eager to share them with you as you train. That additional insight is key to really improving your game. As someone who's not in the greatest shape, I was happy that Jermaine modified his workout to accommodate my fitness level, and by the end of the workout I was spent - but walked out of the gym with a smile on my face. I look forward to working with him a lot in the future! Highly recommend!
