More About Coach Jon

For two years at Peak Sports Academy, I've coached boys and girls of all ages, from kindergarteners to high school seniors. My coaching roles varied from AAU teams to clinics and skill sessions. I've also ran programs and basketball-themed birthday parties. One memorable experience was assisting Coach Bob Hurley, a Naismith Hall of Fame Coach, at a week-long camp. Each season, I consistently train 25-50 kids in private and small group settings. My passion lies in helping others achieve their goals through coaching, and I'm dedicated to nurturing their skills and fostering their love for the game.

As a Marine and former captain of my high school basketball team, I've embodied the values of discipline, leadership, and resilience. In the Marines, I honed my physical fitness and mental toughness, earning recognition for my exemplary performance during rigorous training. At Jonathan Dayton in Springfield NJ, my leadership skills were evident as I guided my team to success, earning the respect of my peers and coaches. Whether facing the challenges of military service or competition on the court, I've consistently demonstrated dedication, determination, and a relentless drive to excel.

Your hour of personalized basketball training will focus on important skills like ball handling, finishing, passing, shooting, and defense. Depending on your experience and areas to improve, we'll decide which fundamentals to work on during our session. Whether it's one skill or all five, we'll tailor the session to fit your needs. We'll also incorporate plyometrics, calisthenics, and stretching to enhance your athleticism. You'll learn drills you can practice on your own to keep getting better. After each session, I'll provide written feedback to guide your progress. This may include drills for home practice, reminders for our next session, motivational boosts, or helpful notes. Let's work together to take your game to the next level.

We will continue to do the sessions with coach Jon

Great coach!

Coach Jon was extremely accommodating, professional, nice and is an awesome coach! He was incredibly patient with my son, and we look forward to continuing sessions with him!

Jon is great. I’m just two sessions I have seen my daughter shooting confidence in the game change.

Coach Jon has been great for my son. The drills are fun and keep him engaged while also building his skill set. Jon is a great combination of being encouraging and positive while also emphasizing working hard to improve. My son has shown great improvement since he started training with Coach Jon. Highly recommended!

Jon is an amazing coach! He is patient and understanding with my girl. She didn't want to try lessons but, after the first lesson and seeing how Jon broke everything down; she's the one asking us for another lesson. She learned how to do a lay up, her ball handling and confidence has improved tremendously, and it's just not noticeable by us, but by her coach and other parents. Highly recommend Jon!

Coach Jon has been great. He's really good at teaching the details of fundamentals and providing feedbacks. I can feel the difference in my skills after each session and I can immediately apply what he taught in games.

Coach Medina is fantastic! Very detail oriented, pushes kids to the next level! My son improved tremendously with coach Medina.

Very impressive how you pull these kids to play together as a team. All positive reinforcement and good sportsmanship training.
The experience that Jonathan possesses as a United States Marine and a business owner, combined with his keen desire to elevate the human spirit, make him a great fit for a career as a coach.
