More About Coach Kenneth

I have been playing basketball for over 30 years and I have been coaching basketball for over 20 years. I have been fortunate to coach the game that I love in Oklahoma, Georgia, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and overseas in Bosnia, South Korea, and Iraq. I have trained student athletes from age 4 to full age adults. I have been training and coaching travel basketball teams since 2012. I served as the varsity girls basketball head coach at Memorial Christian Academy in Killeen, Texas from October 2015 to October 2018. I have been serving as the varsity boys basketball head coach at Memorial Christian Academy since October 2018. I hold active certification with the following organizations: Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), USA Basketball (USAB), National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS), and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). I strive to be a continual learning master coach that looks at coaching as a ministry platform to teach, train, coach, and mentor student athletes not only in basketball, but also in life. As a player, I first began actively playing basketball at age 12. I initially learned the game from a cousin (who played AAU basketball) who was two years younger than I was. That is where I learned that no player is necessarily better than another player, but rather some players are simply more experienced than others. From there I developed a love and a passion for the sport that I have shared with countless student athletes over the past 20 years.
As a coach and trainer, I strive to assist every student athlete in their pursuit to become a fundamentally sound student athlete. I learned strength and conditioning from my time playing basketball, running track, and during a 23-year career as a soldier and leader in the United States Army.

I attended Tulsa Junior College and in 1995 was named the Northeast Campus Most Outstanding Player.
I was a member of the 2014 Fort Hood Post Champion Team as Player/Coach.
As a coach, I was privileged to coach the Memorial Christian Academy Lady Warriors varsity basketball team to their first District Championship, first Regional Runner-Up finish, and State Runner up finish in the Texas Christian Athletic League (TCAL) in 2015-2016. The Lady Warriors finished the 2016-2017 season by making the playoffs. In 2018-2019, I was privileged to coach the Memorial Christian Academy Warriors varsity boys basketball team to their first District Championship, first Regional Championship, and a State Runner-Up finish in the Texas Christian Athletic Fellowship (TCAF) State Playoffs. For 2019-2020, the Memorial Christian Academy Warriors varsity boys basketball team finished the season as the District Champions, Regional Champions, and third in the TCAF State Playoffs.

Client Reviews

Our son hadn't touched a basketball since before spring break, but thanks to Coach Evans who is coming to houses during the pandemic, we are seeing the love for basketball come back in his life.
I really feel as though Coach Evans has the knowledge to push our son over a slight hill he has been facing during his traveling team games, and his 8th grade year is going to be the best season yet.
Coach Evans is always on time and ready to do work.
Coach Evans always stays later to make sure they are both comfortable with what they have accomplished during a session. Coach Evans also builds a personal relationship with our son, so our son has confidence in him and his coaching.
Like I have said to Coach, we feel as if he is our Ace in our pocket!!

Coach Kenneth is a very hands on type of coach with his athletes. His coaching style goes beyond just the sport. He is probably one of the best if not the best around the Killeen area. I definitely recommend Coach Kenneth to anyone looking for honest, time worthy, effective and mentorship style of coaching for your athlete.

Coach Kenneth did an amazing job working with my daughter Aaliyah. He came there with a plan and she was able to follow his guidance.. He took his time and showed her the moves before she did them, I appreciate Coach Kenneth for doing a great job

Coach Kenneth is an excellent basketball coach! He is observant, positive, knowledgeable, and kind. My daughter loves working with him and has improved in just two sessions!

Coach Evans is a great coach! Very knowledgeable, has patience and knows when to push the kids. Kenneth Evans breaks down every part of the game for the player and prepares them for any situation imaginable! He is great with my 8 year old and a excellent mentor for my 13 year old! In a short period of I have watch my 8 year old skills improve and my 13 year old it’s a night and day difference in her game! Highly recommend!

Coach Kenneth is a great! Really enjoyed his energy and knowledge.

Loved Coach Kenneth's attitude, drills, communication, etc. Overall highly satisfied with him coaching my 13yo, son. Being a first timer in hiring a private coach, and nervous, I am now confident that Coach Kenneth is the perfect pick for my son. Will definitely continue to use his service and I highly recommend him.

What an amazing week it was for my daughter (4th Grader)! Truly sore from all the workout but in her words, she found it "empowering," and it really has had a huge motivational and confidence "IMPACT" on her training and I’m sure it will carry through to her games.

Coach Evans explains and demonstrates the techniques methodically and encourages until the student gets it right. I like how he focuses on developing a strong foundation with fundamental skills on which to build upon to include endurance level. I am very impressed with the skills that are being taught and the drills they run. If you are looking for someone to improve your kid’s game while at the same further their passion for the sport, I highly recommend Coach Evans.

Coach Kenneth is an amazing trainer. He takes the time to get to know each athlete so he can personalize his workouts to maximize the time. I am greatly pleased to have my daughter train with coach Kenneth. Thank you for your service.

Coach Evans connected with our boys quickly -- motivating them to give their best effort and inspiring them to work hard. I am anticipating increased skills in basketball, but also increased leadership in life.

Coach Kenneth E was very understanding of my son's lack of knowledge pertaining to basketball. He was very detailed in his assessment of what we needed to do to improve his game so that personal goals for my child could be expedited. From the moment I booked the package Coach was active in communicating with me and guiding me through the training process. In one session I saw my son complete dribbling drills that I was trying to teach him for months. I will continue to set up sessions with this coach and encourage you to do so also.

This has been a great experience for our son, especially with us being new to the area. Coach Evan's technical expertise shows in the progression of our son's new and refined abilities. His compassion for the sport and life lessons as he coaches, teaches, and mentors these young individuals is priceless. Thank you so much as our son gained an extended family. We highly recommend that at any level your child may be, Coach Evans would harness that energy and skill and exceed your expectations.

Training is going as expected.

Great Coaching, easy to learn from & talk to can’t wait for many more sessions!

Had a great work out! Got a lot of shots up!! Would love to come again!!

Coach Evans is a great coach! My son loves each session! My son has been training with him for over a year! We finally took the leap to 1x1 training. Coach Evans holds him accountable on and off the court! I have seen a huge difference in his effort!

Coach Kenneth is more than a good coach; he is a good man. He took his time with my son who is on the autism spectrum. This means a lot to me because it takes him a little more time to grasp abstract concepts. His patience has been remarkable and I would definitely recommend him to other parents. When I was looking for a basketball coach for my son I was also looking for a positive and strong role model in my son’s life. Coach Kenneth not only helps my son be the best player he can be on the court but takes an active role in helping him navigate the world off the court, to be the best human he can be. Coach Kenneth truly cares about the player first then his game and that means the world to me. I thank God for the man Coach Kenneth is to my son.

Had our first session today with Coach Evans and he was extremely professional and patient with my daughter. After the session he gave her homework and she asked to get started on it right away. She is already looking forward to he next session.

Awesome! Highly recommend!

Coach Kenneth has very upbeat personality, which makes the session much more fun and interesting. With his clear direction, my daughters skills improved within days. ’

I recently had a session with Coach Kenneth Evans. Initially coach Evans allowed me and my son to watch a session see if that’s what we wanted. At first I was skeptical, there were other kids there and I felt this would be no different then my sons after school practice Which was not affective. Before the end of the watch coach Evans pulled me to the side and had a very detailed conversation with me about his desire for teaching the athletes. I booked a session and to my surprise even with other other kids there my son still got the one on one that he was suppose to get he even had my son excited and eager to push hard which is not an easy task and if you have a teenager of today you will know the bed and the electronics rule. After the session I expected my son to say no more but he is ready for the next sessions. Thank you Coach Evans! This is a great way to start and I look forward to more sessions.

Coach Kenneth was concise, very patient, and transparent. He allowed my son to take his time and get comfortable with the direction he was provided. He allowed me to leave our session feeling completely comfortable and with the understanding of what his role and intentions were. What we loved most about him was his ability to communicate with both the player- on the court- and the parent-off the court-. I would definitely recommend Coach Kenneth to other parents.

My son enjoyed his first session with Coach Evans and his other coaches. We will definitely continue to have Coach Evans work with him.

My son has trained with others, but nothing compares to Coach Kenneth! His drive and hard work in preparing my son for basketball is phenomenal! I most definitely see the improvements in my son’s basketball skills. Coach Kenneth is organized in implementing all essential physical and mental skills my athlete needs to be successful. Thank you for all you do Coach! God bless you.
Coach Evans does a great job of keeping the training session engaging, challenging, and fun. He even visited my child's basketball games on several occasions to observe her performance. Lastly, I love the fact that he always enquires about her performance in the classroom and encourages her to strive to make good grades and always do her best on every assignment.
