Client Reviews

Coach Lamar was a great coach! He exercised patience and slowed the training down when needed to provide a better understanding of the game/drills. He did well with not only introducing new drills and techniques, but also correlating the drills to in game scenarios. I like how there is a lot of teachable moments rather than just running through drills. My 10yr old son will continue to work with him to improve and get better. I would definitely recommend him to others.

Coach Lamar was a professional. He came with his own equipment and got to work right away. My Son learned a great deal from him in a short amount of time. Highly recommended.

My son is a rising 9th grader and had a great session with Coach Lamar this morning. Coach Lamar provided valuable technique training. He was detail-oriented and helped my son make adjustments in his body positioning. He had the ability to evaluate my son quickly and help him in the area he needed the most help. I’m looking forward to booking more sessions.

Wow…….what a high energy coach. My son had his first training session with Lamar yesterday and we were very impressed. He is extremely knowledgeable and came to the session well prepared. He was very encouraging and wanted my son to get the most out of the training session that he could. He demonstrated each drill and showed my son exactly how it should be done. If you want to take your game to the next level you cannot pick a better coach than Coach Lamar.

Great Coach He can really strength the weaknesses out of your game. Even for guys who play on the highest level. IF you play defense you really need to see him. Thanks coach
