More About Coach Mike

I have had a love of basketball all my life. Through hard work and dedication I was able to get a Division I scholarship to Xavier University to play basketball. After college I had the opportunity to play professionally for 10 years in the NBA and overseas. After retiring I began coaching my children and coaching youth basketball. For the last 3 years I have been coaching a Select AAU Team in The Woodlands area. I have a tremendous amount of knowledge of the game and now look forward to sharing with today’s youth. There are so many kids out the there who are just playing the game, but do NOT know how the game is suppose to be played. Skill development is a lost art. I believe that I have the patience and knowledge to give your athlete what is needed to be able to compete and be one up on the competition.

Only team to go undefeated in League Play in the Nation. Team Captain of the 1998 World Games in Athens, Greece and winning the Bronze. Won the Spanish and Polish League title while in Europe.

During my sessions I like working on Ball Handling, Footwork, Reading the Defense, Free Throws, Conditioning , and Shooting. We have to put our time in the gym working on our game. What you putting in your training, is what you get out of training? " You don't Work, You Don't Eat !!!!

Coach Mike did an excellent job and provided useful techniques and strategies to assist with continued growth!

Coach Mike is a very fine athlete and an excellent mentor. He connected very well with my son (12 year old). I could literally see how his tips would improve my sons game at the end of the first session. Looking forward to many more training sessions with Coach Mike!

We had a session with Mike for my 7 year old son. Mike was very responsive and flexible with scheduling. He was very organized during the training session and had a clear plan of things he wanted to work on with my son. Equally as important was the pleasant and encouraging demeanor he had with my son. I so happy with the initial session I will be scheduling more. I would highly recommend Mike!!

Would highly recommend coach mike we travel 6hrs to have our daughter trained with him and we not disappointed at all. Mr mike is very professional on responses and his training. Our daughter learned alot of techniques to improve her playing, she did 2 sessions with him and finished exhausted but happy with the training. She said she would definitelely take more classes with coach mike. One last thing : you can see that coach mike loves basketball and teaching what he knows to others. THANKS COACH MIKE

Mike was punctual, organized, and professional during this initial session with my 6 year old son. He quickly assessed areas of strength and areas of weakness and immediately implemented a training plan to support areas of strength and build areas of weakness. My 6 year old is now dribbling with both hands. He really enjoyed the session. Thanks Mike. See you next week. Awesome.

Mike is an outstanding coach and extremely professional. He really listens to what you want to work on and helps to improve particular aspects of your game, for me it was my handle and long range jumper . I would highly recommend mike! He went above and beyond my expectations

Coach Mike was great!! My 15 year old son loved his positive coaching style and no BS attitude. Mike's the real deal...

Coach Mike was great for my son. His sessions are very organized. He is a great communicator with children. Also, coach is very creative with his teaching style. The facility is very clean with security and a play area for small kids. My son is already looking forward to the next session.

Coach Mike is a great coach. After the two sessions my son learned the fundamentals of basketball. His training is superb. I will definitely recommend Coach Mike to my family and friends.

The coach was very professional, and all about business. I had several 1 on 1 sessions with him that were very rewarding in terms of skill and getting a great workout.

Mike is great! He is an excellent coach and my son enjoys working with him and his overall basketball game has already improved after just our first session. Can't wait to continue working with him!

The coach was on time and professional. I was very impressed with the time he took with my son and how patient he was considering my son does not have much experience with the sport. I will definitely be booking more time.

My son is being challenged with lots of new drills & is learning all about endurance. 😊 Coach Mike is a very special coach. He's very caring, motivating, professional & encourages the kids all along the way.

If you're looking to improve your game, Coach Mike is your guy. By the end of her first session, my daughter's form and accuracy were significantly improved. She wanted to book more sessions with him before we had left the court.

He is a really good guy and Coach. Just in my first 3 sessions I have learned new techniques and how to be a overall better player. He is very welcoming, and treated me like family. Every week I can't wait to go, because it is so fun. At the end of the day, you are guaranteed to learn something new and he is a real confidence booster. If you are looking for a coach that would best suit you, he is the answer

Coach Mike is awesome. My son has already improved his game in just two sessions. The best personal, one-on-one training we've had - highly recommended!

Great Coach, I enjoyed the basketball workouts, we worked hard and I have seen improvements in myself.

My son had a really good session with Coach Mike. He was very knowledgeable and patient with him during the drills. As a parent, I liked the structure of the practice. He really took the time to focus on the beginning fundamentals. We will definitely be doing more session with Coach Mike in the future.

Mike is an excellent coach.

My Son Was So Tired He Went Straight To Sleep....Yes Coach Mike Did His Job!! Can't Wait For My Son's Next Session!!!!

Very experienced, learns the player and helps with areas that need improvement.

Coach Mike did an excellent job with my son's (14) first lesson. He knew just how to begin, earned my son's trust, we're looking forward to our second lesson. Great job, coach!

The 1st workout for my son with Coach Mike was a great experience. I wanted a coach that played the game on the highest level and loved coaching. Coach Mike was professional, punctual and answered any questions I had in reference to the training. He worked my son hard teaching the proper technique with specific shooting and dribbling drills. I want my son to be the best he can be so hopefully with hard work and Coach Mike's knowledge of game
