More About Coach Joe

I've trained all skill levels; everyone from beginners to high level pros. I have coached Special Olympics, middle school, high school, and college teams on an interim level in Seattle, WA and Los Angeles, CA.

Varsity player at Ingraham High school. Two year starter and captain at North Seattle College. Averaged 17 points/ 6 Rebounds/ 3 Assists before transferring to a Division II school in Miami, Florida where I made the team as a walk-on for one year. During the basketball season I play for the Quad City Flames, a team a part of the American Basketball Association (ABA).

I specialize in guard-specific training focusing on fundamentals: Footwork, dribbling, passing, shooting technique, and defense for players that are looking to improve their wing play. I also understand basketball is a game of reaction, so I allow the players to add their own individual flare to the drills which helps keep them engaged and motivated to do the drills at 100%. I will also work with the player on understanding the nuances of the game for lingo, strategy, and situations.

The first session is normally an evaluation of the player(s) abilities. The player(s) will go through a series of drills designed to find weaknesses in their game, so that I can develop drills for later sessions that focus mainly on those weaknesses. Usually after that and a conversation afterwards help me develop drills and a session plan specifically for that player's needs.

Prefer players 12+ years old or with at least 2 years experience prior.

Client Reviews

Joe is an awesome coach! He’s very professional on training and at same time being very patient. With a few sessions I’m already seeing significant improvement on my dribbling and shooting. I’ll recommend Joe for everyone looking for either a few sessions of specific improvements or a long term overall training!

Coach joe is awesome. He personalized my training to focus on my weaknesses and also improved my understanding of the game.

Joe’s been super nice. He’s a very, very skilled coach and he’s been kind and engaging. Couldn’t wish for more.

Great Coach!

Joe has done a great job meeting my son where he is and helping him to improve in all the areas of his game.

Coach Joe was awesome. We hired him while we were on vacation to play with two teenage boys who were at very different levels. Coach was on time, knew his stuff and ran the boys hard. They had a great time. Can’t wait to use him again!

Really great coach! He is amazing at what he does!

Coach Joe is awesome! He’s such a good communicator before during and after the training session. He really knows how to find a players weakness and coach them for visible improvement. My 9 year old boy only had one session with him so far but he can’t wait to have the next one!

Coach Joe was great. He spoke to my son in terms he could relate to and was positive with him. He explained both my son’s strength’s and weaknesses. He game him advise on what he needs to work on. We are excited to work with Joe regularly.

Coach Joe was great! Very knowledgeable of the sport and was able to fix a lot of fundamentals for me much quicker than I expected. I’m looking forward to future training sessions with Joe and would recommend him to anyone looking to up their game!

Coach Joe brought a lot of positive energy to his training session. My son told me that he learned a lot and had fun. I highly recommend Coach Joe to anyone looking for a great coach.

Joe is really good in assessing my skill set and providing informative feedback, can’t wait to work with him for more sessions!

Joe is a great coach. He is an easy-going and professional coach, he is always willing to correct my actions while I was dribbling. He trained my dribble skills in the first session. After this session, I feel my dribbling skills get improved.

Coach Joe is the real deal when it comes to developing a player! I am so glad to have crossed paths with him. He not only develops a player’s basketball skills, he is an inspirational mentor as well! My two boys look forward to working with Joe again. I would recommend Coach Joe to any person looking to develop their skills on and off the court. Coach joe is the best coach my two boys have come across!

Coach Joe is training my 11 yr. old grandson, Z. Last weeks first session was fantastic.

Coach & Z hit it off from the beginning. Coach Joe communicated extremely well and his b.ball skills are exemplary. I am impressed and my grandson very excited...

We are so glad we found Coach Joe! He was able to figure out our son's strengths and weaknesses right away and make a training plan for him. My son enjoys his training sessions and looks forward to his next session with Coach Joe. We highly recommend him!

Coach Joe was great with my son. Before the training was over he was thinking about the next time he would see Coach Joe. He a very polite person, really energetic and you can see that he loves what he's doing.

Keenan loved his first session with Joe. He could not wait to tell us everything he learned. We could see an huge improvement when he played his first School game. At first I gave Joe a 5 rating. I’ve changed it to a 3 due to lack of communication regarding scheduling of appointments. I bought 5 sessions middle of September. I was hoping to have a session weekly and rebook him monthly. However it’s middle of December, 3 months later and only 4 sessions are completed. I last hear from Joe just before Thanksgiving. I will not be using his services in the future.

Coach Joe has done an amazing job working daily with my 15 year old boys over the past week. He has taught them valuable moves both on and off the ball to improve their ability to get the basket. They have thoroughly enjoyed their practice sessions and feel they have improved their game to the point that we will return (and we came all the way from Montana!). We highly recommend Coach Joe Jessie!!

Very impressive coach. My boys took to his instruction quickly and are excited about their next coaching session.

Joe is great! Patient, kind and knows his stuff. Can't wait to purchase more sessions, thanks Joe!

For a first meeting Coach Joe did a great job running the appropriate drills to help figure out what my son was good at and what he needed to work on. Definitely will work with him again. Great Trainer!!!

Awesome session with coach Joe. Our 14 year son loved working with him. Definitely booking more time.

Great job, every down to earth. Had a great time, looking forward to more

Great assessment session! I like how coach Joe adjusted the training after the first 2 drills. He helped me breakdown my shooting mechanics, by which I ended up shooting three more confidently and made 6 consecutive 3s right after following his instructions. I’m looking forward to training with him again.

My Grandson way very happy with the Coach.

Coach Joe is great with my son. Very good with pushing him as well as encouraging him. I have never seen my son smile while running line (because he missed free throws). We will continue to use Coach Joe :). Thanks coach!!!

Great coach! We worked hard every session. We focused on the weaknesses I need to improve.

Great Coach , gets stuff done and is very chill and outgoing

Joe is a great coach! He has improved my son’s basketball IQ. Will stay with joe as a coach from now on.

My 12 yr. old son enjoyed working with Coach Joe! After one session my son is more confident in shooting and handling the ball. Joe is easy to work with and very good with kids and it was important to me that my son liked his coach in order to get the best /positive experience. Joe is full of energy and knowledge and we look forward to our next session. I would recommend Coach Joe to anyone looking for some one-on-one coaching.

Joe is great at getting the attention of the player and understands what he needs to do to achieve positive results.

Great workout with Coach Joe, will continue to workout with Joe, to improve my game to the next level

Coach Joe is a great coach. He is really patient to explain fundamentals and gives useful techniques. Looking forward to have progress by training with him. Definitely recommended.

Great training! Have useful tips. Had lots equipment. Looking forward to a good start.

Coach Joe is/was amazing! My son loved working with him and still wants to. The only reason we couldn't continue is because we moved to the Valley area (quite a long way). I'm going to try to find a way for them to continue work together. Coach Joe is prompt for all sessions, knowledgeable about basketball and thorough and patient in his explanations and demonstrations. He is top-notch and we definitely recommend him!

Joe is great coach. I learned a lot from Joe, I never thought I would be able to do the euro step after one session and by the end I had it down.

When my 13 year old grandson asked if he could get a basketball trainer to coach him in areas he felt he was lacking. I told him to do his research and I would make a decision. Wow was I surprised when he showed me why he selected Coach Joe. I immediately scheduled a training session.. Not only did I go to the first training session but Joshua's mother and great grandmother also went. After his first training session we were truly impressed, however we knew the ultimate decision to continue future training sessions would be Joshua's decision. So we asked him to rate Coach Joe on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being Outstanding how would he rate him. His responded immediately "10".... Upon our return home we scheduled 5 more sessions and will continue to schedule with Coach Joe until my grandson feels comfortable with his game. Coach Joe is patient, fun, helpful, honest, thorough, talented, gifted, and a true gentleman.... I told my grandson that I also rated him a 10 for selecting such an AWESOME coach. I would truly refer anyone that is looking for a phenomenal basketball trainer to Coach Joe... Thanks Coach Joe!!!!!!

Superb. Child was delighted with the lesson and wants to do many more!

Coach Joe is a great coach after the first session my son already feels like a new player. Coach Joe was able to encourage my son to keep going in a way that made it fun to him. We will book more sessions with coach Joe.

Coach Joe really is a great coach. He has so much patience with my son that he has instilled in him the confidence he needed to go out on the basketball court and be a good player. My son has learned a lot from the 3 sessions that he has trained with Coach Joe. I couldn't ask for a better coach than Joe. My son is lucky to have Coach Joe as his mentor.

Coach Joe has been a great influence on my son. I really appreciate him not just as a coach, but a role model. He's very articulate, patient and smart. He knows his stuff when it comes to drills and i see a big difference in my sons play. We've had only 3 sessions so far and i look forward to booking more with him! My son really enjoys the training time with Coach Joe. He's youg enough to where the kids really pay attention to him, yet mature enough to know what the parents expect. He's awesome!

Great coach. Kids are enjoying classes.

Coach Joe was a great coach, his patience and teaching skills are very commendable. I really liked the way he teaches my son and as well my colleges kids as a group.

Joe is a great coach. He knows the game and how to teach it!. My son loves working with Joe and we're seeing a great amount of progress in a short amount of time. I recommend Joe very highly

My son is 10 years old.
We visited for practice from JAPAN.
And I selected Joe.

Joe is good coach.
Because my son said me "I want to try again with Joe".
I think so!

Thanks.

Coach Joe is great with my three boys. Kids really like him and they enjoy working out him...

My 12-year-old walked off the court after a lesson with Coach Joe and said,"That was awesome." I didn't ask, he just said it. And I have to agree: Coach Joe is the real deal. He has the rare gift that marks truly brilliant coaches: he can read someone's game, see the best future version(s) of his (or her) game , and devise a plan to get there. He's focused, observant, and when he gives you a drill or makes an adjustment to your step, your handle, your stroke, he doesn't just tell you how, he explains why. He's serious but fun, he knows confidence is part of the game so he somehow pulls off that balance of pushing and supporting at the same time. Its the best thing to see how much my son gets out of every session.

Coach Joe is awesome, patient, and my son really enjoys learning from him. He learned a lot of new techniques today. We just started and are hoping our son will continue to learn a lot from him.

Coach Joe has a great enthusiasm and knowledge of the game. During our first session, we primarily focused on ball handling. We worked with cones, spacing, two ball dribbling, and coordination with a tennis ball. I was impressed with how the basics built up into full dribble moves that can help you find your shot or a lane to the basket.

Coach Joe is a great coach. He's patient and doesn't get irritated if you mess up during a drill but motivates you to do better the next time. His drills are setup to fit your needs. He's an overall great coach.

Coach J has a lot of energy and really works with you. He made sure that we learned the proper technique and form, then explained every drill so that you can get why its important for the game. Really positive if you miss a shot or mess up which is nice when you don't like to mess up.
