More About Coach Marco

Since graduating from UMass Lowell in 2015, I have had the privilege of being the Boy’s JV Basketball Coach at Beaver Country Day School (Chestnut Hill, MA). In March of 2019, I became licensed as a USA Basketball Coach while also working as a basketball skills trainer/coach for various youth basketball organizations including:
*Massachusetts Youth Committed to Winning (MYCW)
*Base Hoopz,
*Frenchy US Camps (based in France)
*ATF Athletix “Team 6 Elite” Training
Being a student of the game, I always look to continuously refine and improve, not only my knowledge of the game, but also the ways in which to teach these concepts to others. My playing, coaching and classroom teaching experience has provided me with the opportunity to gain expertise working with various populations including boys and girls between the ages of 9-19.
Working within these organizations inspired me to start my own organization, Catracho Ballers
Inc. In our first year, we have formed an international basketball brand, successfully organized and run our first international basketball camps in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, as well as, Managua, Nicaragua. As a result of our work we have also been recognized by The International Basketball Federation, or more commonly known as, FIBA, as the premier youth basketball organization in Honduras.

*Played four years of varsity basketball at the John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science (Boston) before completing one post-graduate year at Brimmer and May School (Chestnut Hill).
O'Bryant: Served as team captain for two seasons, was twice named a Boston City League All-Star and three City League South championships.
Brmmer & May: Awarded team MVP honors and was named 3rd-team All-State by ESPN Rise, 3rd-team All-NEPSAC and a New England All-Star.
*Received a full athletic scholarship to play NCAA Division-I basketball at Northeastern University and UMass Lowell. At Northeastern, helped the team win the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Regular Season Championship and participated in 2013 National Invitational Tournament. Named America East Conference Player of the Week and received Riverhawk of the Week recognition at UMass Lowell.
*Participated in various FIBA-sponsored athletic competitions representing Honduras on their Men's National Basketball Team earning Bronze medals in 2015 (El Salvador) and 2017 (Nicaragua). Played with Metapan AD in El Salvador's Liga Mayor de Baloncesto (LMB).

The session will always begin with a dynamic warm-up to prepare for the workout. Dynamic warm up exercises include some stretching, muscular activation, agility work, and light cardio to get the heart pumping, blood flowing and muscles ready to go! After the warm up, we'll move on to some fundamental skill work- dribbling, shooting, passing- and any particular skills that the client would like to focus/improve on. This will be followed by different drills to mimic game-like movements at game speed in order to improve cardiovascular endurance and to help clients acquire skills at an autonomous level.

Client Reviews

My son Ben had another great 1 on 1 training session with Coach Marco today. His ball handling, shooting and footwork are improving with each session. Coach Marco does a great job of providing timely feedback following each session and offers examples of actual results for different shooting drills so Ben has something to measure himself against. I am very pleased with his progress so far and would highly recommend Coach Marco to others!

Coach Marco is a great coach. Just after 3 sessions I’ve already seen quantifiable progress. He believes in me and encourages me, so I have no choice but to give him my all. Everything we do is intentional and I am extremely satisfied to have him as a coach. He has vision and sees the potential in me that I don’t see yet, but it’s revealed as we practice continuously.

MARCO HAS GREAT PLAYING EXPERIENCE AT THE DIVISION 1 LEVEL. HE BRINGS A LOT OF IN-GAME EXPERIENCE . AS A POINT GUARD HE RAN HIS TEAM AND BROUGHT LEADERSHIP TO THE TEAM.  HIS INTERNATIONAL AND PROFESSIONAL RESUME GIVES HIM ANOTHER DIMENSION TO HIS BASKETBALL KNOWLEDGE AND PEDIGREE.   I WORKED WITH MARCO GOING INTO HIS SENIOR YEAR AND IN PREPARATION FOR PLAYING HIS COUNTRY (HONDURAS) FOR OLYMPIC QUALIFIER GAMES.  HE IS SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO WORK BUT IS ALSO WILLING TO TEACH AS WELL. DURING OUR TEAM 6 ELITE TRAINING CAMP I WATCHED MARCO TEACH THE FUNDAMENTALS OF THE GAME AND ALSO BUILD AND CONNECT WITH OUR ATHLETES GIVING THEM PREMIUM INFORMATION AND GREAT INSIGHT OF THE GAME FROM HIS PERSPECTIVE AS A COACH. HE HAS A GREAT FUTURE BECAUSE OF HIS WILLINGNESS TO LEAD BUT ALSO FOLLOW.
Coach Marco has been more than exceptional in his approach to teaching the game of basketball to athletes of all ages. Not only has he competed collegiately at a high level but he has also played professionally amongst some of the top talent on the globe. I highly recommend choose Coach Marco for all development in basketball.
We had two great games here yesterday. Your JV team is one of the best coaches JV teams I have seen in 30 years. Kudos to the coaches and the kids!
