More About Coach Kione

I've coached all ages from 10-18. I currently work with the Thunder Youth basketball Program and I’ve also coached at Jarman Middle school and a home school freshman team the Oklahoma City Knights, sending them to Home School league Nationals where we placed 5th out of 40 teams. While in Virginia I assisted with Team Loaded (VA) where we competed nationally and won numerous championships from 13u to 17u. Coaching certificate and Point guard Training certificate current.

Signed to play at SMU 2007, but did not pass physical due to heart murmurs. Later that year enrolled at the University of Southern Maine, where I played 3 years earning captain honors my sophomore year. Tore my MCL my junior year, sat out and enlisted in the United States Navy where I made the All Navy team (18 out of 137 participants). We traveled to Bahrain, Greece and Spain and competed at the class C&D levels. I earned best "Point Guard" of the coast and brought back a regional qualifier championship to NAS Oceana. Outside of sports, I've won a countless number of leadership awards and other Naval awards such as Sailor of the Quarter, Plane Captain of the year, and Navy and Marine Core Medal. I also have trained 2 players who are currently playing in the NABL, and one who participated in Overseas Basketball Combine in Las Vegas.

I am a hands on coach, I will participate in drills with my client. I focus on improving basketball I.Q. on and off the court. I specialize in "catch and shoot" and "on ball defense" and "Isolations moves". I start every session with proper stretching and light jogs to get the blood flowing. Ball handling consisting of misdirections, multitasking, change of speed and isolation dribbles. Form shooting close to the basket, working on extending the arm and making sure we are spreading the fingers. Free throws and then prep for spot shooting. I have my guys shoot 20 and depending on age the have to make a certain amount and run what they don't make. Free throws and the isolation moves to a layup and also to a jump shot. Two cone attack working on change of direction and then isolation moves at the second cone. We discuss what we have learned and we acknowledge 2 good things and 2 things we need to work on and we end with 20 hot spot, where the player finds his favorite spot and shoots 20 shots and depending on age and skill set they run what they don't complete. I also like to run with them so they grasp that its a team sport and we are all accountable.

Coach Kione really ran a great workout. He came prepared and really pushed my son to give his best effort. I saw my son improve in only one workout.

Kione can really work you out. You will love training with him. He can demonstrate at high level and has the knowledge to make your game rise. The best part about it was his powerful story. He has been through a lot and he leaves it all out on the court. I'm looking forward to starting my Sophomore seasons of college with the tools and knowledge he gave me.
If you have any kind of interest in playing basketball, and want to get better at it, go to Kione. Your fundamentals skills will improve and by the time your training is over you will become a better player on and off the court. Kione is a true professional with integrity, composure and motivation. His passion is through the roof and he should be somewhere big really son.
I want you to know that my son really enjoyed working with you and is looking forward to next week. I really enjoyed your coaching style and how you explained things. I know that he enjoyed himself the both of them chatted all the way home about the great experience.
