More About Coach Justin

My name is Coach Furtado, and I am a seasoned coach with five years of experience working with athletes of all ages and skill levels. I have worked with young athletes as young as four and all the way up to high school age. My passion for coaching stems from my own love for sports and my desire to help young athletes develop the skills they need to succeed on and off the court.

Over the years, I have coached at various levels, starting at the Royal Basketball School for elementary ages and Kidsports Basketball in Eugene, OR where I coached middle school players for two years. Currently, I am the Head Coach for Frosh Soph at Venice HS, and I also serve as the Assistant Varsity Coach. In addition, I coach a 10U club team for Santa Monica Basketball Academy.

I also have my own training business, Bridging Impact Basketball, where I specialize in helping athletes develop their shooting skills, leadership abilities, and overall impact on the game. I work with athletes of all levels, from beginners to advanced players, and I find joy in helping each player reach their full potential.

To ensure that I am providing the best coaching and training possible, I have earned certifications from industry organizations such as Positive Coaching Alliance and NASM as a Youth Exercise Trainer. These certifications have given me the knowledge and skills to help young athletes not only develop their physical abilities but also to foster a positive and supportive team environment.

If you are looking for a coach who is passionate about helping young athletes succeed, then I would love to work with you. Let's work together to help your athlete reach their full potential!

As an athlete, I played Varsity basketball and baseball for Arcata HS in Northern California, where I was a four-year Varsity player on baseball and played one year of Varsity basketball. Despite not having the natural talent and athleticism that many of my peers had, I worked twice as hard just to make the team, and that tenacity and perseverance carried me through to become an impactful and effective trainer.

What sets me apart from other coaches is that I understand the value of hard work and the importance of teaching skills to players who may not have natural abilities. As an athlete, I was honored to receive the Most Inspirational Athlete award five times during high school, as well as the Most Improved award once. These awards not only speak to my own achievements but also to my ability to inspire and motivate others.

As a coach, I have dedicated myself to helping young athletes reach their full potential, both on and off the court. I believe that every player has the ability to succeed, regardless of their natural abilities. By working with me, players will learn the skills and techniques necessary to become successful athletes and will also gain the confidence and discipline needed to succeed in other areas of their lives. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and help you achieve your goals.

As a coach, I focus on providing a transformative experience for my clients rather than simply offering lessons. My goal is to help athletes achieve their goals through personalized plans and a minimum commitment of 3 months.

During a typical session with me, clients can expect to receive guidance and support as we work together to create a tailored plan that meets their specific needs and goals. I focus on helping athletes become better shooters by teaching them specific drills and techniques that can help them improve their shooting accuracy.

In addition to improving shooting skills, I also focus on helping athletes become better leaders both on and off the court. I believe that athletes can make a greater impact on their team by learning how to lead effectively and by setting a positive example for others.

When working with an athlete, I typically begin by focusing on athleticism and ball handling at the beginning of a session. From there, we move on to shooting, finishing, and making in-game reads throughout the session. This approach allows athletes to develop a range of skills that are essential for success on the court.

Overall, my coaching philosophy is centered around creating personalized plans that are tailored to each athlete's unique needs and goals. By working closely with my clients over a minimum of 3 months, I am able to help them achieve meaningful transformations both on and off the court.

Client Reviews

Coach Furtado has a way of commanding attention and connecting with kids not by raising his voice and proving he is better than them on the court, but by leveling with them with them and engaging them in ways that they can relate to. His passion for teaching goes beyond little ones for his fundamentals and love of the game really shines through in a way that commands respect from all ages.
