Coach Josh was exactly what we were looking for. My boys are 12 and 10, and have had sporadic success with various coaches throughout the years, but Josh has just the right mix of toughness, organization, knowledge, and experience and my boys really responded well to his methods. I've seen too many coaches who are just going through the motions, so I was happy to find a coach who really seemed to care about the kids development. I would highly recommend Josh for any kids looking to improve their game or find a solid club environment.

Josh is an excellent teacher, I'd recommend him to anyone looking to reach the next level. 5+ stars!

Coach Josh is great at teaching the fundamentals. He has helped my child with proper technique and pushes my son hard but is also patient while doing this. He is the best of both, which is what you want in a coach.

Coach pushes the athletes to reach their max potential. He's very positive and has already given my son a boost of confidence.

If I had the option to rate Coach Johnson six stars, I'd argue for seven! I approached Coach Johnson as a collegiate soccer athlete playing basketball for the first time. Right off the bat, Johnson pushed me into very challenging drills that spurred my growth sharply. Josh focused on high intensity ball handling work that worked both hands equally as to eliminate a weak hand and explosive offensive drills. His critique of my shooting form was precise, actionable and constructive. I found myself actively correcting my own faults after he explained the body mechanics. After a few sessions, I already developed great handles and was working on the speed of my footwork. Not too long after, I started beating competitive athletes in 1 on 1's. For anyone wanting to learn a sport seriously, Josh is the right way to go. Thank you for your mentorship! Be seeing you soon.

Coach Josh was literally out of this world!! I’ve never seen my sons face the way I did after his first session. He even said that he never knew his body could be pushed in such a challenging way. The second session was also amazing. I was late about 10 minuets and so was the Coach’s next victim (lol) so he had my boy lifting weights like a beast! I loved seeing him struggle because that was proof he was working his hardest. I’m more than blessed to have Coach Josh and my son too he so looks forward to the next session and was disappointed when I had to cancel one of them for another day. He even wanted to see him on the weekend. Definitely going to be adding more sessions and recommending this talented coach!!

I have a wonderful training experience. Thank you!

Coach Josh does a great job. He constantly challenges my son, age 14, to get better. I feel like my son is treated like a professional trainer treats a professional athlete. I mean that in a good way.

Amazing coach great in technique and helps their whole game

My son really enjoyed his first session with Coach Josh. I really like that Josh teaches the fundamentals that are so important for my son to build upon. We are definitely setting up more sessions!
