My son, my husband and I all LOVE Coach Mesho. She is an authentically positive person and does not compromise her standards on performance. She seems very experienced with working with children as she keeps my son motivated and engaged but also knows when he needs to take things a bit slower. She is extremely professional and also a genuinely kind person. She’s more than what we could have hoped or asked for in finding a coach for our son!

Coach Mesho has been great for my daughter. Coach Mesho is great at explaining the game at a level that my daughter could understand. We were able to tell a difference in her game after 1 session.

I loved how patient she were. She was so sweet and knew what she was talking about, I would recommend her to anyone .

Mesho is an amazing coach! She is a great listener, very patient, answered all of my questions, good at providing positive reinforcement. I'm 38 years old, and literally hit the best shot of my life within 20 minutes of our first lesson, all due to her great instructions. She is a very gifted instructor! Could not recommend more highly!!

We appreciate the help and all of the knowledge that she has and has poured into my daughter and will definitely refer to our friends. Her knowledge and teaching method is top notch.

It’s very hard to impress my husband , so if we could give coach Mesho 10 stars that would be more appropriate than 5 . She is doing great job with coaching our son and we will continue booking future sessions with her .

great first sessions . Ironing out the fundamentals and getting rid of bad habits

Coach Mesho is amazing. She is friendly, encouraging, energetic, and a gifted teacher. My daughter was completely new to basketball and Coach Mesho was able to teach her proper shooting form - stance, alignment, and mechanics. My daughter walked off the court after her first session looking like a basketball player. It's worth investing in the proper techniques and we're so glad to have found Coach Mesho. We will absolutely be booking more sessions and for all of my kids!

Coach Mesho was excellent with my son. She has a great teaching style and we immediately booked additional sessions.

Easy to work with. Great teacher!

First lesson with Mesho with my 10yo daughter. Went great. My daughter loved it and wants more lessons.

Coach Meshio is knowledgeable, friendly and to the point. Both of my kids loved her coaching and teaching methods.

Coach Mesho has done a great job working with my daughter who is new to basketball. My daughter has learned a lot about the game from her. Her increase in confidence and aggressiveness on the court is directly contributed to Coach Mesho's teaching.

Even after one session, my son sees dramatic improvement of his basketball skill. I highly recommend Coach Mesho to everyone. She is worthy of every penny and more. Thank you so much Coach Mesho

We have had an amazing experience so far with coach. She is knowledgeable and fun. My daughter is learning the fundamentals and enjoying the process.

We are working with Coach Mesho and I’m really impressed. She’s focused on building strong foundational skills and fundamentals...the key to any great player.

I would highly recommend Coach M for any boy or girl wanting to build their skill base.

I know we have two more sessions but Drew has learned already so much. He is practicing everything you taught him each day. He is a bit stubborn and use to his old ways but he is in transformation thanks to you coach Mesho.

Coach Mesho is working with my son, who is a freshman in high school. After only one session, she was able to pin point some areas of weakness and is working on skills with him to get him ready for the next level of basketball. Looking forward to the next session and ongoing progress.

Coach Morrow is great. I appreciate how committed she is to developing kids' fundamentals. She pushes her players to be better and she had a lot of great drills. We will continue to use her!

My daughter finished her initial session with Coach Mesho last night. While watching Coach Mesho with my daughter I not only saw Maiya's acceptance of the knowledge imparted, but witnessed the ease in which Coach Mesho set expectations with her on raising her skill level and basketball IQ. Just from this first meeting I could see in Coach Mesho's interactions that she is intent and gifted with building her player's confidence, character and intensity for learning! Thanks Coach Mesho we look forward to many more sessions with you.

Coach Mesho is a great coach. The first session she covered many of the basics that Brayden did not know. By the end of the session, his moves were much smoother.

Coach Mesho was absolutely great! My son truly loved working with her and is looking forward to his next session with her! I'm really glad he got a chance to work with her and I can't wait to see what more she has in store for him! Thanks again!

Coach Mesho is awesome. She works well with kids with purposeful and fun drills. My son went from being a kid scoring a couple baskets a year to someone who has to 10 plus point games and one of the better players on his undefeated Rec team.

Coach Mesho was an excellent coach, very patient, and awesome person. 👍👍👍

Coach Mesho is phenomenal!! She took her time showing my son technique which helped him tremendously!! He learned more in that one session than he did in the 3 years he played with Upward! I could see his confidence level rise with each skill she taught him. Excited for our next session!

This coach is awesome. Highly recommend her hands down!!!

Coach Mesho has given my son great techniques and helped transition him from a high school player to a college player.

My grandson had a wonderful session with Coach Mesho today. She was prompt and pleasant. Her basketball and teaching skills were on point. He learned a lot of basics that he had missed during his regular practices. We look forward to our next session.

Thought she was very knowledgeable and took time to fully explain what she wanted.

Coach Mesho is a really great coach she taught my son some new things. And he wants to continue to train with her.

Coach Mesho was great in appreciating what was needed to help our daughter grow as a player. Our daughter had fun and has practiced on her own to improve on the skills learned in her first session!

I really enjoyed the session today with Coach Mesho...she was very detailed and i love that fact that she is a teaching coach. She stopped and corrected my daughter during drills and made her understand what she was doing wrong and why she needed to correct it. My daughter said she enjoyed the session and learned a lot....so glad i found found Coach Mesho and we look foward to working with you. Thank you

Great knowledge of basketball fundamentals, listened to what our needs were, and stepped right in and started helping us. We saw immediate improvement and would recommend to anyone

Coach Mesho is truly one of a kind, an athlete with the ability to teach! In one hour my daughter felt she learned more about the -fundamentals- of basketball, than in six years of school basketball. We look forward to continuing her training with Coach Mesho!

Coach Mesho is an awesome coach. My daughter is 15 and needs assistance with technique and fundamentals. She is a very late starter to the sport, but her desire to become better and succeed is strong. Coach Mesho was very effective with her. She never made my daughter feel uncomfortable due to her lack of knowledge of the sport. Before we made it to our car my daughter said I like her when will we go back. It was very important to find a coach that would have patience with her and still be able to pull the best out of her. We found it with Coach Mesho.

My 7th grade daughter is very much enjoying her time with Coach Mesho and is learning so much. I could see a difference in her ball handling skills the first day and continue to see improvement at each session. I like that Coach Mesho takes the time to provide instruction on and the opportunity to practice specific skills - and then builds on them at the following session. The detailed instruction on technique has been so helpful. The sessions with Coach Mesho will definitely help my daughter be more successful in the upcoming season.

Coach Morrow has been great to watch working with my daughter. It's really nice how she makes sure everything taught is done correctly before moving to the next skill. Her professionalism, knowledge of the game, and motivating comments sets her apart from many.

She was on time, very professional, exhibited a high level of patience working with my 8 year old daughter and teaching her the fundamentals of basketball.

Coach Mesho is our secret sauce! Our player has gained knowledge, skills and even more importantly confidence working with Coach Mesho. If your looking for a coach that deeply cares about your players’ success on and off the court then look no further. We are so thankful for her guidance to our player and the support she provides for future growth. **Specific improvements while working with Coach Mesho: significant improvement in ball handling, accuracy with shooting, improved coordination, and precision in drills.
Coach Mesho has been doing an outstanding job with my daughter for several weeks now. She concentrates on skills that is appropriate and rewarding to my daughter. She also, spends quality time communicating with my daughter about skills she can work on after practice and reflecting on everyday life goals. Coach Mesho is a great coach who believes in the game of basketball. I thank her for taking the time out to share that passion with my daughter.
