For my daughters first session she was a little nervous but Coach Kimble brings humor to the lessons and that made her feel a little less nervous. She learned a lot her first session. Coach Kimble worked on improving the fundamentals. My daughter said it was a good first lesson and can't wait till the next one. We will be back!

My son’ s training session was outstanding! He is so excited to learn more over the upcoming months. My on was immediately at ease.I wish I had found Coach Kimble earlier, and I am certain my son will be a much improved athlete for the fall. Coach Kimble is the coach/trainer I have had hoped for - positive, encouraging, and committed.

The experience with Coach Kimble and his knowledge on the game of Basketball is great. My son enjoys learning and receiving the mentorship and guidance from Coach. He is patient, energetic and a overall great person. Coach breaks you down, explains and then builds you up properly. Will stay going to training and receiving the guidance provided. Thanks Coach for your time and all you do for the athletes and future leaders of tomorrow’s growth.

Very Respectfully,

Rick Townsend

Coach John did a great job for our first lesson, She learned how to shoot with one hand and learned some foot moves. He explains things so she understands him and takes his time with her showing her each move. I would highly recommend him to any child who wants to play basketball.

My son had his first session with Coach Kimble. Coach Kimble is an excellent basketball coach who is very professional and sincere. He manages every bit of the session efficiently without wasting a second.

He explained the techniques and encouraged my son until he got it right. Coach Kimble covered everything from shooting a basketball to having right footwork.

He went through intense, fast-paced workouts, that will help you grow my sons endurance level as well. Look forward to next week.

Thank you, Coach Kimble!!!”

Coach John is doing a great job with Braden. Braden is already learning a lot from just one session. He is doing his second session now and Coach John is so patient with him.

Great session! Passionate about coaching and preaches patience over perfection! Definitely can’t wait to get many more sessions in with him.

He was really good !

Coach Kimble asked a lot of questions, worked with our hectic schedule and designed high content skilled Coaching. He instantly made us feel comfortable and extremely credible. His experience and demeanor were exactly what we were looking for and he delivered!

Coach Kimble was very patient and made the training fun for my son. We look forward to working with Coach Kimble throughout this summer to take my son to the next level.

Coach Kimble was absolutely amazing! My son immediately responded to coach Kimble’s instruction because it was REAL teaching and coaching. My son enjoyed and learned so much about basketball in an hour than my husband and I could have shown him in a week. My son now understands the importance of ball protecting, power layups, and good foot work! Coach Kimble is a teacher at heart , and he is using his gift to build confident and talented athletes.

Oliver really enjoyed coach John. Great communication. Very upbeat and positive atmosphere!! We will be back for more training.

Since my first review my son has had four sessions with Coach John. We see improvements with our sons skills at his practices and in games. Unfortunately, because we are so busy during the summer we will not book anymore sessions. We will for sure use Coach John before the season starts. Thanks for your time, patience and the skills my son learned in such a short period of time!

Coach Kimble is a very knowledgeable basketball coach. We have had two sessions so far and my son's shot has definitely improved. We are looking forward to more sessions and the improvement it will bring. I would recommend him to anyone!

My son & I really enjoyed our session with John. He went through a lot in an hour and was giving homework. I really liked his ability to communicate with my 11 year old in a manner that he could understand and made the experience fun & motivational. My son was very inspired and seems more confident when playing basketball now! Thx Coach!

As a Middle School Basketball Coach it is my goal to teach my players the skills they need to excel in the sport. Over the past year Coach Kimble has helped me with the task of improving the boy’s fundamentals and overall basketball skills. In addition to helping the boys, he has provided me with coaching tips and our team has taken a 4-0 start for the basketball season. I would recommend Coach Kimble to any parent, player, or coach to assist in building skills for the sport of basketball.
I have known Coach Kimble as a coach and a mentor. He coached my sons AAU team to a 6th place finish in the US in an AAU National Tournaments and he also spent countless hours teaching fundamentals to him in a one on one setting and a small group setting. Coach Kimble teaches not only the game of basketball, he teaches the small things that you don’t even think about that are needed to be successful on the court. His knowledge is invaluable. Not only is he a great coach, he cares about the kids he comes in contact with. He teaches them about becoming young men and women which is way more important than any game.
Several of our kids have taken private lessons with Coach Kimble and he has done a great job building on what we have done. He is extremely thorough and has an extensive knowledge of the game, and teaches them well. Their skill levels have increased greatly!
TESTIMONIES FROM PARENTS or COACHES ABOUT PRIVATE PLAYER INSTRUCTION Over the last two summers my son has worked with Coach Kimble learning basketball skills and fundamentals. Working with Coach Kimble has tremendously improved my son’s shot release, dribbling skills, and defensive skills. The discipline and knowledge provided by Coach Kimble has not only improved my son’s skills, but has additionally helped shape him as an athlete.
