More About Coach Kellen

Coaching basketball is much more than a job for me. It’s a way of life. It’s an opportunity to share something amazing and be a part of the journey with another individual. Through the hard work, the struggles, and all those “a-hah!” moments, I live for helping others follow their dreams.

I want to teach more than just how to play basketball, but rather help construct a foundation on which greater skills can be built upon that will last a lifetime.

When you train with me you’re getting more than just a “standard” basketball lesson you might find at a local community center.

My experience includes:
9 plus years as a skills trainer
2 Years as a DII assistant coach
6 Years as Head JV, assistant varsity coach

I finished a four-year playing career at Seton Hill University in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC). Despite missing most of two seasons due to injury, I was still able to average 15.3 points per game for my career.

As a freshman I started 16 games, posting 10.5 points and 5 rebounds per game and was award WVIAC all-freshman team. As a senior, I finished with career highs of 16.9 points and 4.5 assists per game, while playing nearly 32 minutes per game.

Prior to my time at Seton Hill, I played scholastically at Geibel Catholic High School. At Geibiel I averaged 28ppg for my career and ended my career as the schools leading scorer with 1,8500 total points. I was also named team captain 3 years in a row and received first-team all-section honors.

Making the decision to start training for basketball is exciting but can also be intimidating. Finding a motivating, consistent basketball trainer with the right qualifications who will also be a good match for your child is not easy.

Every coach/trainer that enters your child’s life is a role model and will help shape the person they will ultimately become. This is something I take very seriously, which is why I not only focus on basketball but helping your child become a better version of themselves.

I am here to help guide players through learning new skills, gaining a greater sense of self-confidence, and ultimately helping them succeed both on and off the court.

Seeing improvement can be the start of a lifelong passion that your child can share with others for years to come. Through personal victories, triumphs, and challenges, having basketball as an outlet is something I consider invaluable.

Whether you have a child wanting to try basketball for the first time or your child is looking to improve his current level I can provide training for all ages, ability levels, and skills-including, shooting, ball handling, footwork, coordination, IQ and more.

Coach Kellen knows what he is doing! My son got a lot out of her first session. Our son is in Middle School so we feel this type of instruction is necessary to be able to make and succeed on a High School level team in a few year. Thank you!
