I have had a passion for basketball for as long as I can remember. I have played basketball at every level from elementary, junior high, high school junior varsity and varsity levels as well as attended college on a basketball scholarship. I have played for former NBA coach, Denny Price at the collegiate level, and over the past 19 years coached alongside many celebrated, accomplished and nationally recognized coaches at the high school level. I was also part of the coaching staff that coached a local high school team to an amazing 32-0 record which culminated in winning a Division I, California State Championship. My high school coaching record of 429-51 included several post season appearances, multiple league and section championships as well as back to back California Division I championship appearances. I have played with and coached players who have gone on to play at the collegiate level and professionally in the NBA as well as abroad. Most recently, I have been coaching and providing one-on-one training with local youth leagues. My youth coaching record of 40-19 includes five post-season appearances and two championships. I have also worked throughout the Bay Area as a PE teacher for grades Pre-K through 8.

Basketball Workout Design: For All Skill Levels

Sessions are 60 (individual) to 90 (group) minutes long. Before starting our first session we set a course of goals, outline expectations, and decide together the initial direction of our sessions.

We work on the fundamentals and individual strengths/challenge areas to improve your over all game. We work on increasing your skill level and your understanding of fundamentals of the game and on increasing your Basketball IQ.

A specific practice plan will be created for each session based your specific needs. The three typical areas covered in a session would be:

- Ball handling skills

We will be working on the mechanics of dribbling with off-hand emphasis. As we progress we will add one-on-one moves and counter moves. Each dribble move is performed with emphasis on your balance, posture, and footwork.

- Shooting

We will break down the mechanics of shooting including balance, form, foot work and follow through. Our goal is to find ways to increase your accuracy and range.

- Defense

Defense is a critical component to the game of basketball. We will work on your stance, posture, foot work, hand position and how to understand angles which are pivotal to your success as a defensive player.

I think, Coach Maurice is a Great... Very detail, knowledgeable on the game of basketball both as a student and teacher. Love to teach kids into young adults

Couch Maurice was great. My son Matty was bragging about how much he had learned already just on his first session. He's looking forward to coming back and training with couch Maurice he feels very strongly that he will learn a lot with him, with practice will be able to play at higher level to help his team in the future.

My son loves training with Coach Maurice and looks forward to each session he gets to train with him. In his game following his first session, I already saw an improvement and saw my son using techniques he had learned from Coach Maurice. My son can be difficult to teach because he has a lot of energy and can get distracted easily, but Coach Maurice keeps his attention focused and my son responds very well to him. I would highly recommend Coach Maurice for anyone looking to develop their basketball fundamentals and skills.

Coach Maurice was really a great teacher and was really patient with my son who was playing basketball for the first time. His improvement from the from the beginning of the season to the end was remarkable. We'll be working with him again this season.
Working with Coach Horton I was able to improve my ball handling, free throw shooting and foot work.
