Most importantly, I grew up living & playing in the housing projects. The toughness required to endure the challenges in that environment is an athletic highlight in itself. So many obstacles to overcome and rise above I use my experiences, knowledge, and compassion to mold my athletes to become the best versions of themselves. My passion is teaching the youth or anyone willing to grow in this industry.

Looking forward to working with the future basketball Superstars!

Warm Regards,

Coach Dizon

From the first session changes and alterations will be visible in the athlete's game in regards to skill and technique.
Sessions vary depending on the individual's skill level, needs, and personal goals.
New athletes, expect an assessment to be conducted in person/zoom calls along with training and feedback on our first session. Let's plan accordingly.

Basic Session Example:
(5 mins) Before the session begins, we greet and discuss the game plan for the day and utilize this time to get in touch with athlete(s) emotional and physical needs if any accommodations need to be made accordingly.
• 9:00am-Warm up drills/stretches/breathing techniques
• 9:05am-Ball handling practices
• 9:13am-Water break/stretch
• 9:15am-Layup drills
• 9:25am Shooting drills
• 9:34am Water Break
• 9:35am Conditioning
• 9:40am Free throws
• 9:50am Cool down
• 9:55am Chalk Talk- goals/growth/change needed to implement into the next session
• 10:00am End of Session

The best practice is where the athlete and I discuss bar skill levels/room for improvement working towards a common goal for growth!
Recommend video footage- for instant assessment a small fee is required for feedback either prior to the meeting or after our sessions. Heavily Experienced with coaching teams of sizes that can range from 1-30 athletes in one session.

If your are reading this review, look no further! Coach Justin is an elite trainer with an impressive resume. My 16 year old son have trained with numerous trainers and Coach Justin is next level. Elite training comes with a price, but most importantly, results.

Coach Justin has provided training above our expectations. Not only does he work well with the trainee, he is professional and detailed oriented. Each session is tailored to the trainee’s skill set and progression. Most importantly, Coach Justin empowers while training to ensure that the trainee’s mindset is in the right place. It is evident that he has a passion for the game and it’s more than a job to him. Would highly recommend!

Amazing coach. Will help train your fundamentals and show you how to apply it to in game situations. Highly recommend!

Coach Justin is great with my 9 year old. He keeps him engaged and learning the whole time. My son is really happy to work with Justin.

Justin worked with my middle schooler and high schooler. Different teens, different goals. He met them both at their level. My kids both said he was good, gave them information they can use to practice going forward and want to do some more sessions this summer.
Absolutely recommend

Coach Justin was just what my kids needed.
He was good at assessing their ability and use the first lesson to go over the both the physical and mental aspects of basketball.

He is very down to earth and positive and provided good guidance.

Looking forward to getting more lessons from a good coach.

Coach Justin conducted a thorough initial workout with my son. I immediately booked additional sessions with Justin. My son is looking forward to training and improving his basketball skills.

Coach Justin did an incredible job with my 8-year-old, working through fundamentals to prepare him for try-outs. Great training all-around and would highly recommend him!

Daniel enjoyed the session. Honesty was a very big factor for me (Mrs. Benjamin) and the love of teaching the next generation players. I truly appreciate Coach Justin and how he pays attention to details about Daniel. Thank you so much CoachUp for a Coach like Coach Justin D. We are booking more sessions too!
Thank you,
Mrs. Benjamin

Honestly down to earth guy great instructor made my session super personal and about my growth. Looking forward to more learning from coach J - thanks again for helping my jumpshot!!! Was much needed

Coach Justin is very detail oriented, focused and real. He really wants the best for his clients and helps you empower yourself to get to that level and hold yourself accountable, he makes the game fun for you and is very relatable.

Amazing coach! He explains and demonstrates the techniques methodically and encourages you until you gets it right. He always gives live feedback along the way if you’re doing something right or wrong and helps you in correcting your form or techniques!! Last but not least he brings a great and positive energy to the sessions that makes you want to come back!

We are very happy with Coach Justin. He is a great coach. My sons enjoy training with him very much. He is working hard to help my kids to became better basketball players. We highly recommend him.

My son, 7 year old, and daughter 9 year old, enjoyed training with Coach Justin a lot! They are new to the game and wanted to improve their skills. Coach Justin explained a lot of basic fundamentals to them so that they can understand how to apply it. He also motivated them and push them to work hard during the drills while making it fun at the same time. We are very happy to have found him to help with our training. Looking forward to more sessions!

Coach Justin was amazing - I haven’t played in a long time and I wanted to start again with an assessment on where my game is at currently, as well as receiving guidance on which areas to work on. After a great training of the fundamentals, he has provided a comprehensive and detailed feedback summary on my game, and how to continue progressing it. It was a great sessions and I would recommend coach to anyone looking to improve their game.

Justin is a great coach and a great guy. I’m so happy I found him.

Coach Justin is an amazing coach. He pushes me to train as hard as I can and pays a lot of attention to my specific situation and needs. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to take their game to the next level.

Coach Dizon is the best. My son was excited for the training. Coach Dizon took his time explaining drills and the importance of footworks. Lot of encouragement and hyping my 8 years old son. He can’t wait to do it again.

Doesn’t feel like training when Coach Dizon made it fun for him.

I’m a 34 year old trying to learn basketball well enough to play recreational pickup. Justin was excellent in teaching fundamentals and skills I didn’t even know Id need to have as well as teaching me gameplay in the first session.

(no details provided)

My son learned a lot from 1st session with Coach Justin, he will plan drills ahead of time, practice footwork, shooting posture, layup, and a lot. We can’t wait to practice with him again! Highly recommend!

Justin is cool, smart, and funny and loves the game. 100% recommend

Hey Justin, just wanted to let you know that Eli made the JV team and he is VERY happy. You definitely helped him prepare for the tryouts through all your coaching (which he has loved). Thanks so much
