More About Coach Michael

Coach Michael Rogers is an Alumni of Valparaiso University where he played 4 years of division 1 basketball under the coaching of the one of the most winning-est coaches in the history of the NCAA, Coach Homer Drew.

Throughout his 4 years of playing he has learned a lot and developed his skills to the point where he is a member of the Jamaica national basketball team and also play professional basketball in Europe.

Throughout his college career and after he has always enjoyed working with players of all ages and even volunteering at the local YMCA to help players develop their skill of the game just like he was able to do. He was fortunate enough to have almost played every position in college so he has a good grasp of the work that needs to be done to develop each area of the game. He is original a shooting guard/small forward so he has in depth knowledge of those positions which would make his specialties; ball handling, shooting, footwork, defense, pivoting, playing off screens, moving without the ball and passing. Coach Michael focuses on teaching the small details that will give you that extra edge on the court.

In all of our sessions we will aiming for growth and development so therefore no sessions will be the same, I will always strive to bring something new to the table but if there is a specific skill to focus on I will incorporate that development in different ways. With that said, I normally start a session with a dynamic warm up, followed by shooting and skill development and conditioning. At the end of each session there will be goal oriented game targeting a specific task or skill.

My son really enjoyed his session with Michael.

Very good with my 16 year old with strong work ethics.

My son really enjoyed his coaching session! I plan to schedule more sessions with Coach Michael!

Our first session was great! We are so excited to see how our son will grow in his skills. Coach Michael is an excellent coach, showing my son things he hasn't thought of before and the drills were great! My son had fun doing it and can't wait untill his next session.

First session went great! Michael was very insightful on how to work with and better the skills our son has. Gave him some great tips and form adjustments. Great attitude, patient and he even beat us to our training location! We'll be booking our next session shortly!

He is a great coach and we see the difference in one session!

My son really enjoyed his session. He said he has never been taught/instructed on most of the things addressed.

I haven't worked with him long but in my brief sessions I can tell he has the ability to make me better. His consistency and attention to my personal needs as a professional player were top of the line. There is no ego or hidden agenda, just pure trying to get me better as a player. I was able to chat with him about my specific needs and he adjusted my workouts with modifications that would be perfect for my needs. I will definitely be working with him on a regular basis.
