More About Coach Kyle

Been a coach at many camps since being in high school, college, Europe and done many workouts for athletes in my old High school in Summit, Illinois Argo community High school. I also maintained being an AAU coach for my High school during 2 summers of 2011 and 2012. I am a natural teacher and leader my whole life. Basketball is a game I know inside out and I know what it takes to succeed in this sport.

At Argo Community High School:
• Led team to Conference Championship wins in 1993-94 & 1996-97
• All-conference 1st team 1995-96 & 1996-97
• All-Area 1st team, 1996-97
• All-State Team-Honorable Mention, 1996-97
• 1st African-American jersey retired at Argo community high school

After playing high school basketball went on to play at Eastern Illinois University on a scholarship.

At Eastern Illinois University:
• Currently ranked as EIU’s #3 all-time scorer & #4 in a single game
• Also, currently ranks in EIU career ‘top five’ in 7 offensive categories
• Ohio Valley Conference, All-Conference Team-Honorable Mention, 1998-99
• OVC All-Conference 1st Team, 1999-00 & 2000-01
• OVC Tournament MVP, 2000-01
• Ranked 2nd in the nation & 1st in OVC in scoring, 2000-01
• Named to All-Region 1st team, 2000-01
• Led team to the NCAA championship in 2001, for the first time since season
• Inducted to EIU Athletic Hall of Fame, 2008
• 1 of 10 players selected to EIU’s All-Century Team, 2009-10

I think my greatest accomplishment was being drafted in 2001 44th pick Dallas Mavericks. I used that to play pro ball in Europe for 11years and I have won 5 championships in 3 different coutries as well as 5 cup championships in France, Spain and Croatia while playing in Italy, Serbia and Bosnia .

Well to start with ball handling drills which can consist of 1 or 2 balls at a time as a warm-up and is something I feel is a big part of improving skills, next we would work on spot shooting and making sure they have the proper way of shooting, next I combine the both with some speed dribbling into pull-up jump shots and lay-ups as well as floaters, and to finish 3 pt shooting.

Coach Kyle is a gifted instructor! He has an amazing ability to teach difficult skills to young players. Our 8 year old son had a blast while learning ball handling and shooting techniques. In one hour, we were amazed at how much he had advanced! Coach Kyle is a gem! We will be booking with him next week!

So amazing! Great friendly guy! My son game has improved since this lesson..my son felt so much better after the lesson... Can't wait for another lesson!!!

Coach Hill is a genuine down to earth coach. He has what it takes to take your game to the next level. I highly recommend Coach Hill. Has worked with me before & we just started back up recently. He will start with my younger brother. He is taking our talents to the next level & teaching us valuable life lessons. If there was more than 5 stars I would rate him the highest because he is an elite player development coach!!

Coach Kyle has been a great help for our son. He's given him very specific lessons and drills to help him exactly where he needs it. We highly recommend him !!

Have completed 2 of 5 lessons with Coach Kyle and I'm pleased with what he has done with my 12-year old granddaughter, Gabby, so far. Gabby looks forward to her lessons and has already gained valuable skills and knowledge to help make her a more confident and skilled b-ball player.

Very knowledgeable and engaging.

Great coach, very patient and noticed an improvement in my sons

Coach Kyle is excellent!! He takes time with the kids and ensures that they perform the drills correctly and my son really enjoyed the session, he wants to continue!

I read lots of great reviews about Coach Kyle before signing up and I can tell you they are there for a reason. My son has only been to 2 sessions so far and I am already seeing a direct impact in games. It is impressive and very rewarding to see the exact skills Kyle works on in practice show up in the games. Highly recommend.

Kyle is the man, knows so much. He picks out so many little things that you don't think of and helps you improve them, which helps your game over all.

Coach Kyle is an excellent Coach. I would recommend him to anyone. My son can't wait for his next session.

Good coach!

My son has been working with Coach Kyle for close to a year now. His skill level and confidence have improved remarkably. He was able to make his middle school team this year and he is seeing the hard work pay off in games. Kyle is extremely reliable and always prepared for productive sessions. His positive encouragement and friendly manner keeps sessions fun and enjoyable. We would recommend Kyle to any one who wanted to develop and improve their game.

Coach Kyle has been excellent in all the current facets he has taught. Hard worker, sees the the needs and has implemented great work plans.

Awesome first session! My 13 year old can't wait to go again! He was excited to practice all of the skills he learned!

Coach Kyle is the best trainer I've had! I only had 1 session with him but i cant wait till the next one. His classes are very good you can learn a lot from him and really enjoy his practices.

My son really enjoyed his first session with Kyle. The session was a nice combination of skills assessment and relevant feedback with a focus on the key areas for development. Kyle's style is encouraging, but he does not shy away from giving constructive feedback on where to improve or focus practice sessions. My son is looking forward to his next session. Me too!

Coach Kyle did an outstanding job with my son. The added skills, ball handling, and control, has greatly improved his game. I recommend Kyle to anyone looking to take their skills to the next level.

Kyle has been excellent with working my son. Marcus has expressed to me that the drills have helped improve his game. Kyle has shown dedication to Marcus and he shows a genuine interest in Marcus which I appreciate very much. He tells Marcus exactly what needs to do to improve his skills. Kyle is excellent and I look forward to continuing relationship with Marcus and Kyle.

I hired Kyle to help my 9 yr old grandson who never really played before. So far in just 2 lessons my grandson has improved a lot! What's also important is Kyle's teaching manner and skills. I use to teach children martial arts. And I've learned that a person skilled in any art or sport does not necessarily make them skilled at teaching. But Kyle is just terrific. He's upbeat through the whole lesson. Besides being great at showing kids the basics and fundamentals, he's supportive, encouraging, and makes the lessons fun. He follows a detailed lesson plan and makes the hour zoom by. My grandson looks forward to every lesson and totally enjoys working out with Kyle, which makes it worth every penny. He's got my 5 star vote.

Kyle realizes what parts of my game needed to be worked on and we worked on them! Overall great session!

Coach Kyle shows a real interest in improving my game. Coach Kyle's techniques and methods are the "real deal"

Coach Kyle was great -I learned new skills to help me with my game

My son, Nick, has had multiple seasons with Coach Kyle over the course of the past four months. The improvement and confidence Nick has gained during this time is remarkable. Nick looks forward to his sessions each week, and he admires and looks up to Coach Kyle when he gives him words of encouragement. Nick's teammates can't believe this is the same insecure player that was on the courts last spring. I give Coach Kyle ALL the credit. He's an awesome role model for my son, and I'm so thankful we know him. Nick believes he picked the best coach from your organization, and he never wants to leave!! Thank you so much, Kyle! 😃

My 12 year old son has had two sessions with coach Kyle now and already has gotten a lot out of it. Coach Kyle is very positive even if my son doesn't get ithe drill down perfectly right away. My son has shown improvement already and is very excited about continuing to work with coach Kyle, so I've recently purchased another 5 pack. We would definitely recommend coach Kyle.

Chris-

Coach Kyle is the absolute BEST! I had to bribe my son to just try 3 lessons, and now he does not want to quit! My son was amazed at how much he learned after only 1 session. Kyle is extremely patient with my 13 year old son, and always cheers him on even when he struggles with a particular move or shot. My son struggles with lack of self confidence, and Kyle is just the right guy for that - always talking about getting out there and trying your best; plus telling of his personal struggles and how he overcame them. I cannot say enough about what he has done for my son after only 5 sessions. He is WONDERFUL with children - very caring, patient, pleasant and supportive. I wanted the absolute best coach for my son - I made the right choice! You definitely get what you pay for.

Coach Kyle is a great coach. I have never heard my son say that drills were fun until he started training with Kyle. His coaching style is patient, fun & motivating while successfully teaching my son the proper techniques to further his game.

I like the first workout

I was unable to attend the coaching session with my son but it met my first test when I asked my son, "do you have more hope now about your game?" And he responded with wide eyes, "Yes!" I instructed my son to write a list of what he hoped to get from private coaching and to share it with Kyle. My son mentioned that Kyle stated that his plan is to work on every item on the list even before they met the first time.

Great coach! I can see major improvement in my game in the future if I keep doing what coach Kyle makes me do.

Thanks Kyle for the wonderful work you do! My son found his first basketball session challenging, but fun. He really likes your teaching style. He states that you were very informative and looks forward to working with you again soon.

My son had a session with Coach Kyle and left looking forward to his next one. Coach Kyle was very attentive, taking his time not only showing him but also explained each step of his training session. My son learned new skills and left with things to work on at home. At the end of the session Coach Kyle gave my husband and I an overall review with his recommendations. My son said he learned more in this one session than a week at basketball camp. Thank you, Coach Kyle!

Coach Kyle is a really great coach. He has a great attitude, patients and very good work ethics. He has exactly what my son needs, We have a lot of work ahead of us and will continue the long term coaching session until my son is ready if it take 2 or 3 years so be it.

Great workout with coach Kyle. Learned a lot in an hour. Looking forward ton the next session.

Great Coach! Thank you for your training!

My 12 year old son Nicholas had his first lesson with Coach Kyle. Very professional and helpful. He is looking forward to his next couple of lessons with Kyle.

Coach Kyle has been working with my son, Nymere who is 11 years old. Not only is he working with us to help Nymere improve his game, but he is helping to mentor Nymere on and off the court. My son has to work on his attitude and not becoming frustrated when things don't go his way while playing basketball. Coach Kyle will not let him complain; he tries to divert Nymere's attention off his attitude and apply that through his game playing.
I would recommend Coach Kyle he is an exceptional coach and mentor!

Excellent coach

Coach Kyle has been great to work with in preparing my son for upcoming basketball tryouts. He has been friendly, flexible, and a great motivator. My son's skills have increased dramatically since he started working with Coach Kyle, so much so we decided to continue training.

Amazing Coach brings the intensity to ever session and motivated me to achieve he has elevated my game already just within the first week can't imagine til my senior year in High School
