More About Coach Matt

I have been coaching and training players for over 7 years now. I train players from all over that look to improve their game. I was a skills development coach for numerous travel basketball teams, shooting coach for many players ranging from competitive travel basketball to olympic athletes. I now run my own travel basketball team, SSA Soldiers. I pride myself as one of the best shooting coaches in the area. If you’re looking to improve your shooting and overall game, contact me.

As a player I've won multiple championships, defensive player awards, Mr. Hustle awards, and won multiple tournament MVPs and 3 point shooting awards in AAU and USSSA. I had scholorship offers from NAIA-D1 teams. I've been invited to and attended several professional mini camps and workouts but injuries prevented me to play at the next level.
As a coach I was an assistant coach for a travel team and won multiple tournaments including winning a U.S. Amateur State Championship. Most players I trained went and played basketball for their high school, travel, or middle school team.

First session plan: We will discuss your goals, strengths and weaknesses. We will break down what we need to work on to achieve your goals and work on building up your weaknesses as well as improve your strengths. I am a very tough trainer and coach, I love what I do and support all athletes that want to improve. I pride myself as a shooting specialist coach but can train all areas of the game from guards, wings, to centers.

Best trainer that i’ve ever had.

We are so very fortunate to have met Matt. He is the exact thing as a parent love about a coach. My son couldn't be happier. So glad he is local to continue helping and giving my son tools to become a better player for a lifetime.
Matt was on time already arrived when we pulled up, he had proper aides to assist in lesson directives, showed by example what to do, no yelling and screaming supporting and encouraging my young son. We can not wait for another coach lesson and many more to follow. Worth every penny and then some.

Matt was very knowledgeable and was able to share and show that knowledge with my son. Nick really enjoyed his session and I have already seen him working on the things Matt went over with him.

He is one amazing coach! My son was excited and loved his first day training with Matt. The passion for the game shows when he coaches. It was one great learning experience for him and he felt very comfortable as well. This is how a professional in any field should be....show passion for what you do!

My son Will has done training with Matt before & responds well to his instruction, & enjoys working with him. He’s hard on them but in a positive that makes him respond. Doesn’t yell at them & keeps a postive approach always but lets them know what there doing wrong & to keep going until you get it right

We love his overall personality

Great first session!

Coach Matt has only been working with my son for the past few weeks but he has shown improvement in every aspect of basketball. My son can now handle the ball well, jump higher and a more accurate shot. I will continue to send my son to Coach Matt, not only does he have a plan he provides results!.

Coach Matthew is a great coach. My son is a Jr. in high school and is starting to get his college recruiting process into full swing and he knows that this off season and the next year will be crucial to to him getting the type of college offers he's looking for.

We have faith that Coach Matthew will help him take his game to the next level and achieve his goals, he's very knowledgeable and passionate about his approach to training. He is helping my son not only improve his skills but also preparing him mentally by giving him advise about how to navigate the recruitment process.

What a great coach! From the moment we met him, we already know that he was a Pro. My Son just started last week and we already notice the improvement! Thank you coach....Serge

Great coach. Had a good time and worked on a lot of aspect of the game. Highly recommended.

Very impressed with coach Mathew! We would highly recommend him! Coach Mathew was very professional in his approach to training, while at the same time making sure that the kids had a great time!

Great coach really knows alot about the game of basketball from shooting to
Ball handling to defense. We will be working more in the future.

Coach Matthews is awesome! He is highly patient, and he makes sure he explains everything with you. My daughter will be training with him again.

Attributes knowledge as to how to improve your skills and utilizes good teaching strategies. Will definitely sign up more sessions with him.

I was really impressed with his knowledge of the game and different skills. My son really enjoys working with him. Excellent trainer.

Bo was a young 3rd grade athlete that needed help with shooting, confidence, and footwork. He had a lot of heart and improved on all aspects of the game. Ball handling, confidence, and is shooting mid range at a high percentage, and working on three point shooting.
Isaiah came to me shooting with both hands, okay ball handling, and was shy. He is now shooting consistent jump shots with a form, taking control at point guard, and commanding an offense. He never played organized basketball and is now starting for a travel basketball team.
Started from a kid that couldn't make a left hand layup to a kid dribbling with both hands and finishing strong every play. Could barely reach the rim on a three pointer and now is hitting them at a good percentage.
