Client Reviews

Very happy with our first session with Coach Kareem. Coach asked our son what his goals were as well as what he thought his strengths and weaknesses were. Coach was able to quickly see where our son could use some tweaking / coaching and went to work. My son had a lot of fun and worked hard during the session. Our son can’t wait for his next session.

Coach Kareem has a great coaching skill set and able to key in on the specific skills needed to continue to develop a player. Having not seen my daughter in several months, he was able to pick up with what seemed like where his focus should be for her continued development. I’m confident that her skills will improve with his coaching!

Dylan and I are very pleased with Coach Kareem. The first session was productive and Dylan really enjoyed it. Thanks Coach

Coach was precise with his drills and discussion of how to execute and flexible with the scheduling. Feedback was always prompt.

Coach Kareem was great

My daughter had an initial session with Coach Kareem. She loved it. He was able to point out some weak point & work on drills for improving. They covered defense, ball handling, shooting & agility all in the hour time. So glad to have found him & I look forward to my daughter working with him more going forward. Would def recommend.

Excellent coach! My daughter loved Kareem. He was able to quickly identify areas of weakness and give her very specific drills to improve. He is very personable and easy to schedule with. I’d highly recommend him!


Great first session!

Coach Kareem is a great instructor. He understands the age group he is dealing with and knows how to connect to make the hour go by fast with important instructions, detailed drills and solid results. We will continue to work with Coach Kareem.

Coach Kareem was great with the different techniques. I would highly recommend him. Looking forward to many more sessions.

coach Kareem is a great coach if anyone is looking for a great coach to improve your game then he is your guy!!!!!!!!

Coach Kareem was good - he recommended meeting at the track, which I had never thought of as a 'gym'. Then we did many exercises that I had not done before - left feeling like I had a workout.

Coach Kareem insured our son was extremely thorough and shared drills our son had never practiced before. This is the second coach we have used through coach up and Coach Kareem knows his stuff and what it takes to be a player with an edge. Will use his skills again. Highly recommend these sessions for your athlete

Coach Kareem has been a big motivation for my son Benjamin to push himself much more than he has done in the past. Coach has a positive attitude and lots of knowledge of basketball and I know he will get Benjamin to the level he needs to be so Benjamin can be very competitive. Thank You Coach Kareem!!

He had great drills and gave good shooting advice. I can tell he's a good player. He is quick and has good defense.

Coach Kareem was extremely professional and very knowledgeable. Within 5mins he already identified and corrected a hitch in my sons shooting motion. He clearly knows what it takes to play at a very high level. We will definitely be booking more time with him.

Coach Kareem was great he paid close attention to what I needed to fix and worked me very hard. If you want next level training contact coach Kareem will get you there. Looking forward to seeing coach really soon.

After our first session with Coach Kareem we knew we wanted to book more sessions. My son is a small guard and looking to improve his ball handling, and after 1st session already feels he has improved. Looking forward to many more sessions with him.

from the first session I could see how much care and determination coach Kareem has to make sure my son gets the most effective training to be a great basketball player. My son loved working with coach Kareem and didn't mind working hard because he was enjoying his training. I highly recommend coach Kareem

Coach Kareem pushed me passed my limits. Even though it was hard I enjoyed myself and got better. I'm definitely going back to him.
