I have over 7 years of coaching experience with youth of various ages.
I have coached middle school basketball, taught basketball classes at recreation centers, and I helped teach basketball skills camps at various locations. I've volunteered for the American Heart Association by teaching basketball skills to middle school students as a part of Hoops for Heart. I also have experience working one-on-one with individuals looking to play college basketball.
I'm currently a middle school PE teacher and basketball coach at a charter school in Dallas.
I have over 20 years playing experience. I played high school basketball, was the starting point guard, and made 2nd Team All-City. I was also Newcomer of the Year in the district. I played college basketball at Dallas Christian College and Texas Lutheran University. I played both the point guard and shooting guard position.
I like to talk to the athlete to find out what areas they feel need improvement and create a workout session that is tailored to their specific needs. I really enjoy teaching and talking about the game of basketball to athletes I train. I feel like it helps a lot with understanding the game and developing their skills.
A typical session always has some warm-up drills, some basic basketball drills, and lots of drills specifically tailored to help the athlete improve in the areas they feel need the most help.
