More About Coach Joe

I'm a former professional NBA player. I have worked with the ARC basketball league as a coach and have also done some training with the basketball team at Sierra Canyon HS. I work kids of all ages.

- College Player of the year at University of Maryland in 1995, where I led my team to the Sweet Sixteen
- I was number one pick in the NBA draft, and played 16 years in the league.

I really focus my training according to the needs of the player. Initially, I meet with player and assess his/her skills and formulate a plan specifically for the needs of their position.

Coach Joe is not only amazing at the basketball training part, he's also great with kids. My son is a beginner and I could already see a difference after one session with Coach Joe. We'll definitely be signing up for more!

Coach Joe was a joy to meet and very easy to take instruction from. Very knowledgeable and we are looking forward to the next training session.

Berry good coach. Very nice. Highly recommended.

Coach Joe has been great. My son is enjoying the sessions very much and wants to continue with him all summer.

Great, just great.

Coach Joe is an outstanding trainer. He is very positive and patient. I would recommend Coach Joe to anyone who wants to improve his/her basketball skill, because he will sure be very helpful and very fun to work with!

Coach Joe was great! Kept pushing me over and over until I got things done correctly. Always corrected me on mistakes and gave me pointers on how to become better. Will definitely be coming back for Coach!

Coach Joe S was awesome! He truly understands the game of Bball. As parents of our athlete, we sought true one on one assessment and coaching for our athlete. Coach Joe gave us all of that and more... His love of the game, success playing the game and now as a Retired Professional NBA Player, gives Coach Joe S. a true advantage above and beyond others who are trying to coach or teach the game. He was soo insightful and attentive to our daughter's struggles. He zoned in on areas for improvement and intertwined customized drills to practice in order to take her to the next level during training sessions without focuses on the actual weaknesses. He is really, really good! I would recommend Coach Joe S to anyone desiring the ultimate coaching experience that actually helps your athlete explode with competitiveness. He knows what it takes to win in the game of Bball.

Great just great

Excellent experience. Ty and Myles enjoyed the coaching session and we are definitely going to book additional sessions. Highly recommend!

I really liked Coach Joe. He was professional and constructive (and accurate) but also fun and energetic and a joy to train with. My son had a great experience, felt that he learned a lot, and that Coach Joe was really trying to help him improve.

Great Coach! My son has specific drills to work on at home and can't wait to go back. Very encouraging and positive experience.

Very good with my 14 year old. Expects perfection and is very hands on. This is what one on one coaching is supposed to look like. Each session is both instructional and physically and mentally exhausting.

Coach Joe is vey skilled, he provided intense training which is exactly what my son needed. Very good session.

Coach Joe has been an outstanding asset to my son in his development. Sessions are carefully thought out and focused on my son's needs. His routines have improved my son's skill level and confidence. My son looks forward to his training sessions with Coach Joe and as a result is flourishing. I'd recommend Coach Joe to anyone at any level looking to improve their basketball skills.

Coach Joe did a wonderful job of teaching my son some sound skills. I feel with some more sessions my son will get to the next levelines

Thanks Coach

Coach has a great demeanor and is very constructive with his criticism. He's very focused on the details of learning the fundamentals. It's clear that he played at a very high level for a long time, his attention to detail and requiring reps to be perfect is impressive. He notices the smallest things that make a big difference in footwork, ball handling and shooting.

It was a really good workout!
We practiced foot work, dribbling and shooting.
Really big help!
Thank you Coach Joe!
Looking forward to next time!

Obviously, Coach Joe knows the game, but what really impresses us is how he can break things down with clarity and patience. He is as fine a teacher as he is a player.

Coach joe is 5 stars. He took the time with my son to teach him the skills he needed. My son is 13 years old and coach joe had the patience and used a lot of positive reinforcement. I highly recommend this coach.

Joe is a fantastic coach. He has been working with my 10 year old son for a couple of months. Not only has he helped improve his fundamentals (ball handling and shooting) he has done wonders improving his basketball IQ. His sessions are fun and informative. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone.
