Client Reviews

Coach Nikki was great. She related well to the kids and they really liked her. Her instructions were simple but informative and the kids understood what to do and responded well. I would highly recommend her.

My 14-year-old daughter wanted a session devoted entirely
to shooting technique, and Coach Nikki gave her exactly
what she wanted. Her instruction was clear and friendly,
and her detailed post-session write-up was a nice bonus.

Nikki was a great coach and worked well with my son on a range of drills and fundamentals which will place him in good stead. In addition she helped rework his shooting mechanics given he is quite young. She got on well with my son and has a very good manner with kids.

Nikki is great. We are a group of 8, we have never had any pro lesson before, and Nikki shows us what a real basketball game should be like. She is patient, fun, and understands our needs. Highly recommended!!

Coach Nikki is fantastic! She is personable and good at communicating with my 7 year old son. He is always looking forward to the next session with coach Nikki. We are so glad to have found Nikki at Coach Up!

I highly recommend Coach Nikki to players that want to improve fundamental skills. The warm-up drills she gave provided insight of areas to strengthen while correcting posture.
Coach Nikki asked my areas of concern, and then began to ascertain his skill level through drills of ball handling, posturing, hand-eye coordination, lay-up and shooting. She focused the drills to improve my son's ability, and explained the mechanics of the drill to correct his area of need.
She gave my 14 year old son lots of encouragement and provided drill for him to work on.
A great coach and trainer!

Coach Nikki was great. She is a very friendly person and easy to get work with. On my session, she helped me with my dribbling skills and shooting technique. As it turns out, I have been shooting the ball incorrectly for over 10 years, so we spent some quality time re-honing everything there.

We had our first session and it was awesome. She worked on all skills in anticipation for my little girl’s try outs for the upcoming season and helped build her confidence. I definitely recommend her!

Coach Niki was able to create a holistic program for my 14 yo son at his first session. She covered a number of categories including warm up and coordination, stationary and on the move ball handling, footwork and shooting. She focused on making sure he got the details, and provided new drills to extend him. Her approach is positive and refreshing. My son looks forward to doing more work with Niki in the future.

Another great session. Thanks Nikki — you are really teaching some of the finer points to Lucas and I like that he’s getting exposure to some of those points at this point in his development.

Nikki is an outstanding instructor and my 12 year old daughter truly enjoys her time with Nikki!

Great session with Coach Nikki, my son learned a lot and is looking forward to his next session.

Great experience.

My son has improved in just two sessions with Nikki! She's likable, warm and professional. Would definitely recommend her!

My 12 year old daughter has been playing AAU 3 seasons and needed one-on-one technique and skills training. Nikki did a great job teaching fakes, driving, finishing/shooting. We will use her again to sharpen skills. Would definitely recommend her.

I have 2 daughters, 10 and 12yrs old. They are both athletic, but soccer players with modest basketball skills and experience. Nikki is a great coach. She challenges them while remaining fun warm and focused. She has great technical knowledge and is creative.

Nikki is dope

Great attitude and wonderful coach!

Nikki is great. My 9-year-old daughter loved working out with her.

Have you ever met a person and just gotten a great vibe from him/her? This happened when I met Nikki. Her interaction with us (parents) and with Myles was perfect. When you allow someone into your child's life who will have constant interactions and an impact on him, you HAVE to have a good feeling about that person.

She engaged with Myles, gained his confidence, kept him interested and gave him plenty of positive affirmations during his first session. Her way of training is so cool - very patient. She'd show him a move or an exercise, such as dribbling the ball while juggling a baseball, and he wasn't able to do it at first. Three attempts later and he was able to do it!

By the time the session was over, I'd invited her to come watch him play during some of his local tournaments.

I'm looking forward to having Myles continue to work with Nikki for as long as she's available.

Nice demeanor, skilled, knowledgeable, patient and communicated very well.

Coach Nikki was terrific with Thomas -- she was enthusiastic but made him work hard. He looked forward to his sessions,said he learned a lot, and his form really improved! We'd be happy to work with her again.

Coach Nikki is great. She's been working with our 9 year old, providing a strong foundation and drills to start things off right. She's fun and helpful. We really enjoy working with her.

Nikki is fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and patient. With a wide array of drills, the sessions are always engaging. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend. Nikki has a ton of experience of not only playing at a high level herself, but also coaching and teaching the game. She’s detail oriented and is great at breaking down your movements and showing you how to improve them. Being able to train with someone who has this level of experience, combined with her effective communication, patience and passion for the game is a real asset to anyone serious about improving their skills.

Coach Nikki responded very quickly to our inquiry and was very easy to set up our lesson. She tailored the training session to exactly the development areas we wanted to focus on and brought a number of effective drills to isolate those areas. She was very positive and encouraging.

Nikki was prompt, very nice, and very patient with my beginner 11 year old daughter.

Coach Nikki is professional, competent and has an easy going approach, which has helped me improve my basketball skills. She explains the details of fundamental shooting and attacking moves. Highly recommend her!

Coach Nikki was great! After one session with our daughter, you could tell that her confidence and skills are already improving. Coach Nikki's training and techiques made the time fly by and our daughter wanting to learn more. We will be booking more time with Coach Nikki for our daughter!

Nikki has been doing an awesome job with my daughter. She really likes her as an instructor and looks forward to each lesson

After only two sessions with Coach Nikki, our daughter showed immediate improvement on the court both with her technique and her confidence. Coach Nikki connected immediately and easily with both our daughters and honed in on exactly what they needed to improve. I couldn't offer a more positive endorsement!

It is with great pleasure I write this review. Coach Nikki is an outstanding coach. She coached my 11 year old daughter. Coach Nikki showed my daughter so much patience and kindness. After the first session I saw improve in my daughter’s performance. She was following through with her shots and playing with more confidence. During the season Coach Nikki worked with my daughter, she made the all-star team, the play offs and was voted MVP. I attribute her success directly to Coach Nikki’s inspiring and exceptional coaching. We feel truly blessed and lucky to have had her as a coach. I would recommend her with highest regards.

Coach Nikki tsight Olivia a lot on the first session, including dribbling and shooting fundamentsls. She can't wait for Session 2.

Coach Nikki is an amazing trainer for my 12 year old daughter. She worked on making my daughter's game better: quicker shooting, better arc, dribbling faster, footwork, ball placement, etc. My daughter says that Coach Nikki taught her how to get her shot off faster, different ways to drive to the hoop and overall made her want to do better. We highly recommend Coach Nikki and look forward to booking more sessions with her.

Coach Nikki was absolutely fantastic as an individual coach to my 13 year-old daughter. Nike has both skills, drive and a great communication skills. That all what it takes to get the best out of each and every athlete that has the privilige of working with her. I can highly recommend Nikki.
