More About Coach Maury

Experience: Volunteering at Arcadia High School basketball camps for 4 years (2006-2010), worked the NBA All-Star Jam session (2011), volunteered at Pasadena Bruins kids camp, coached Whittier College basketball camp (2014). Wilson High School Basketball Coach, USA BASKETBALL certified (2016). Coachup Captain, 3rd RANKED COACHUP (Basketball) Coach/Trainer in CALIFORNIA, 8th RANKED in AMERICA

I have trained 100+ players total, all college level and younger. I am currently training a good amount of kids on a weekly basis and am looking to train more that want to get better. I am experienced in coaching individualized and/or group sessions, individual sessions are more geared towards fundamentals and skill work whereas group sessions also add a competitive edge to the workout. I am willing to work with all talent levels and to help those that want it get to the next level. Looking for consistent trainees that are hungry and ready to get their game to the next level! Players that are serious about getting their game to he next level should be training at least 2-3 times per week with their given schedule (outside of practice or games) in the offseason and 1-2 times per week during the season.

I am also a verified ATHLETES USA scout with connections to over 20,000 college and professional coaches. Everyday myself and our team are helping student athletes with athletic scholarships to the top NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA, and CCCAA colleges as well as High School prep schools in the country. We also assist college prospects in getting professional contracts to continue their dreams of playing professionally after college.

Played high school basketball and college basketball at the Division 2 and Division 3 level. I played high school basketball at Arcadia High School, then played at Pasadena City College, Holy Names University, and also at Whittier College. Played in the Nike Say-No-Classic as well as the Drew League.

The session depends on what the player wants to improve on. Individual sessions are more geared towards fundamentals and skill work whereas group sessions also add a competitive edge to the workout. Typically a workout session would start with ball-handling, defense, footwork and transition into shooting and offensive drills. The focus would be to strengthen weaknesses and master strengths to make for a good to great overall player. Conditioning and shooting are also a part of the plan, workouts are tailored to fit and match into each trainee's game. Expect lots of shooting, ball-handling, defense, and IQ strengthening during these sessions.

Nice Job Coach Maury

Best coach I ever met

Great coach! Boys enjoyed doing drills.

Coach Maury is the type of coach who understands the game of basketball really well, was able to fix a couple of Jerad's bad habits on the court. Highly recommend!!

As an experienced basketball player, it can sometimes be hard to listen to a coach who is close in age to yourself. However, it didn't take long for me to see that Coach Maury really knows his stuff. You can't put an age on good coaching! He pays attention to the little things that the players of today don't think too much about - footwork, hand-eye coordination, and all of the essentials in between. If you are looking for a trainer to take you to that next level, I recommend choosing Coach Maury to get you there.

It's really great coach, He taught me many useful basketball skills, Fortunately I met him, thank u coach Maury.

Maury is a great coach. From the first day he started training my daughter. Her self esteem and confidence and vision for the game has really improved. I will continue to take her to coach Maury until she gets to the next level.

Coach Maury is an awesome coach! My son is 8 years old and he was very patient with him. He is very knowledgeable and has great coaching techniques. Coach Maury takes pride in his coaching. We are looking forward to our upcoming sessions and I will definitely be booking more sessions in the future. Thanks coach Maury!!

Initially I had Informal chat with Coach Maury to gather information about what will work best for my son. I didn't feel pressured into doing anything. I wanted a coach that was proactive and involved. Someone who was patient and understanding, Finding a location to provide coaching is always challenging, I was very pleased and satisfied that he had a place convenient for us. This is what you will get from Coach Maury. He is a great listener and has the skills to provide the right common sense advice. My son had no hesitation at all about having Coach Maury as his coach. He enjoyed his session with him and is looking forward to more.

Good coach

My 9 year-old son greatly enjoyed his training session with Coach Maury. When asked how his session went, he said, "Coach Maury helps point out corrections, so I can do better. He is encouraging and tells me to keep trying. I want to have more sessions with him." As a parent, I am pleased with Coach Maury and will be continuing sessions for my son.

My son's session with Coach Maury was spectacular! My son has had numerous coaches and not one has taken the time to evaluate and tell my son what he was doing wrong and how to correct his bad habits to become a better shooter. He has been yelled at and kicked off the court. But, not once was he ever taught what he needed to correct to become a play better. I really appreciated Coach Maury's eye. My son wants to learn how to handle the ball like him. I also liked the way Coach Maury trained my son how to play defensively. I have never seen his technique used before. My son and I were very impressed and most of all my son enjoyed his session. We plan on more sessions.

He is very knowledgable in basketball and in general. He can and will teach you all the skill necessary to succeed. Would highly recommend him.

this week me and my buddy had the privilege of being guests to coach Maury a very knowledgeable coach and trainer. i highly recommend Mr Maury B he pushed us to work hard and made sure we left that gym feeling great about ourselves. for anybody out there trying to work hard and get better on there game contact coach Maury B enough said come join us on a session so we can push each other and grow as players!!!

Top notch professional and innovative trainer !
My son is only 7 years and very skilled for his age so he gets bored with basic drills, coach Maury put him through challenging drills that simulated the exact game situations that my son needed to work on and most importantly he showed my son the importance of working hard and being disciplined all the while making sure my son was having fun playing basketball !!

5 stars isn't enough for the wonderful experience that my son had. We will definitely be comeimf back to coach Maury for all our training needs !

My son had his 1st session with coach Maury and he enjoyed it. He is talented, skillful and patience which motivated my son a lot. I highly recommend coach Maury if anyone looks for a basketball coach.

My son's goal is to take his high school game to the next level. Coach Maury had an immediate impact on his abilities in just one session. Coach Maury really put him through the paces. Everything he did was to benefit my son's game time impact. Shooting off the curl, shooting off the dribble, finishing at the rim, a variety of dribbling techniques... Coach Maury utilized them all to help extend and further enhance the skills my son already has. Coach Maury has current, elite level drills to take you where you need to go. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Coach Maury really a wonderful trainer. He shows great spirit as well as a friendly attitude that will attract any new student. He was great with my son and now he wants more sessions with him.

Coach MAURY worked with my son at Whittier College for the 1st time. I wanted him to focus on improving my son's dribbling and BOY did he work him. When my son struggled on a drill, he was able to redirect my son with another drill to help get him through the drill he was struggling with. I appreciate the patience he had with my 9 yr old son! Great coach!!!
