First I would identify what exactly is the athlete trying to improve on. What is it they already know about the game? What do they want to learn? Then I would lay out a plan of drills and different scenarios in which to focus on what the athlete is trying to improve on. As well as give my opinion on what the athlete needs to improve in.

Coach Mar is a well organized coach. My first session went great. He was excellent. He will know right off the bat what is need to be fixed in your game. Can’t wait to go again.

Went really good. Looking forward to next one.

Coach Mar was really great with our 13 year old son! He worked on his technique and even improved his form. Overall it was a great session and we are looking forward to working with him again. We would definitely recommend him!

Coach Mar is a wonderful organized coach. He is teaching my son skills that are improving his game dramatically. My son's confidence is soaring as a result which is a beautiful thing to see. Although Coach Mar trains my son intensely, he is patient and promotes a positive environment to learn and grow as athlete.

Coach Mar is EXCELLENT. Our goal was to start withe the fundamentals without taking away from the joy of the game. Improve each skill set and build upon that. Coach Mar did just that. His knowledge of the game is fantastic and he was extremely patient and consistent with working on the fundamentals. Highly recommend Coach Mar, he is great with kids.

Coach Mar gives a strong work out with his clients. He helps the student strengthen there weak points on the court. It was a pleasure seeing my son happy working out with coach Mar!

Coach Mar provided coaching lessons for my three sons. They have improved a lot since attending their sessions. He's worked on their individual skills and provided feedback on areas that needed improvement. It is money well spent and my sons love it! I would definitely recommend Coach Mar. - Mrs. Parrish

Coach Mar is awesome. He has taught my 11 year old daughter the skills and confidence to be a more strategic and engaged player. It is immeasurable the joy and comfort you feel when you see your child blossom into a more well rounded confident person. His unique teaching techniques and kind demeanor would surely be a great fit for anyone. Highly recommended!

Coach Mar motivated me to be my best and taught me good work ethic, improved my game in every aspect

My son and daughter resisted doing ball camp this summer so I decided to try one-on-one coaching instead. My goals were to improve their ball handling and build confidence. Coach Mar helped achieved this. With one-on-one they received much more ball time then they would have at a camp with its down time and number of kids. I now plan to continue with Coach Mar throughout the year as well. Thanks Mar, keep up the good work.
