More About Coach Mark

I have trained and coached athletes from Grade 7 through college with an emphasis on tailoring each program to the needs of the individual or group I am working with. I have worked as an assistant freshman basketball coach at the University of Pennsylvania and at numerous summer camps with University of Windsor head coach Chris Oliver and NBA skills coach Don Kelbick. In addition, I hold CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and CrossFit Olympic Weightlifting Certificates.

Played Division 1 basketball at University of Pennsylvania under Hall of Fame Coach Chuck Daly and former Houston Rockets GM Bob Weinhauer. I have additional international playing and coaching experience in Tokyo, Japan.

After an initial evaluation, every session is individually designed to address the strengths and weaknesses of each player. Sessions are designed to improve you as both a basketball player and an athlete. A typical session breakdown is 75-80% skill work, to include footwork, ball handling and shooting. 20-25% of the practice time is devoted to strength, conditioning and mobility specifically designed to develop speed, agility and jumping ability.

Mark J. is an excellent coach. He worked on the dribbling and basic pivoting fundamentals that are crucial for improving my game. He breaks everything down into easy to remember techniques with achievable goals. Very intelligent and positive. Overall great experience.

Mark assisted me when I did some work in the Australian professional league for the Brisbane Bullets. . . He is a keen student of the game. . . Patience may be first among many important qualities it takes to be a coach and Mark has it. You may find someone who is as passionate about basketball as Mark but you won’t find any more passionate. Nor will you find a finer gentleman; he is a man of generosity, honesty and integrity and has a work ethic second to none.
