More About Coach Michelle D.

My experience includes coaching (2) winning teams: (i) the intramural league at my college alma mater, Brown University (Record: 10-2) and (ii) the junior team of KFUM-Uppsala (Uppsala, SWEDEN; Record: 12-0) where I played professional basketball in 1986. Additionally, I have conducted private coaching lessons with youth of family & friends (ages 8-18), have been a summer camp coach at Harvard University Women's Basketball Camp, was an Assistant Coach with the Boston Showstoppers (3-Time National AAU Champions for 17U Girls' Basketball) during the 2015 AAU Season, and as of Summer 2019, I'm serving as an Advisor to the Boston Showstoppers.

With my vast experience, knowledge, and lifelong passion for the game of basketball, I welcome any opportunity to "pay it forward." :-)

Basketball Bio. :

Throughout my childhood to young adult years, I was constantly identified by my team coaches and summer camp counselors as a natural athlete. Even though I played (3) other sports during this time, basketball became, and remains, my favorite. My development as a basketball player began at Cobbett Jr. H.S. (1976-1979) in West Lynn, MA. The greatest team accomplishment was NEC Champions in 1979. Then at Lynn Classical H.S. (1979- 1982), I earned the distinction of being the 1st girls' basketball player to score 1,000 points (in 3 yrs.; as prior to 1987, LCHS was a 3 yr. high school, 10th-12th grade). My season averages (LCHS, 1982) were 28.2 ppg & 18.2 rpg (2nd Leading Scorer – Eastern Massachusetts) and I was selected as NEC Player Of The Year. In July 1982, following high school graduation, I was invited to attend Five-Star Basketball Camp at Boston University. (*Note: The Co-Camp Directors were Kathy Delaney-Smith & Rick Pitino). In 1992, LCHS honored me with induction into its Athletic Hall Of Fame. When deciding on where to attend college, it was imperative that the best combination of academics & athletics were available. So, after sorting through multiple scholarship opportunities, I matriculated to Brown University. My college career statistics & honors at Brown (1982- 1986) were 3rd All-Time Leading Scorer, 2nd All-Time Leading Rebounder, Led Team In Rebounding (1983-1986), 1st Team All-Ivy (1983-1986), Ivy League Champions (1984 & 1985), Ivy League Player Of The Year (1984); Fast Break All- Region: 1st Team; Athletic Hall Of Fame (2000). Following college graduation, my basketball skills gave me the opportunity to travel with Athletes In Action (AIA): Brasil/ Peru/Ecuador Tour (Summer 1986); European Professional League (EPL, 1986): KFUM-Uppsala (Uppsala, SWEDEN), the United States Basketball League (USBL, 1988-1992), and Sports & Cultural Exchange Int'l (SCEI): Brasil /Peru/Mexico Tour (Summer 1997).

Lastly, deeply humbled & honored, The Agganis Foundation (2012) selected me as one of the "Greatest Athletes In The Last Century from the City of Lynn (MA)" and Brown University Sports Foundation selected me (2014) as one of 53 "Greatest All-Time Student Athletes" during the 250th anniversary of Brown University.

Client Reviews

my daughters first session with coach michelle went very well. my daughter felt much more confident about her next game and coach reviewed some areas that she will need work. coach is extremely knowledgeable about basketball and her love for the game is very apparent. look forward to our next session.

Michelle D. has had a fantastic impact on my son's game after just one session. She quickly analyzed his strengths and weaknesses and has given him great skills and feedback to use when he practices. He can't wait for his next coaching session with Michelle.
