I start every training session with some basic drills to gauge the skill level of each client, so I can find any specific areas in their game that might need improvement. My specialty is footwork, which is a skill that is often looked over in today's game. I pay attention to detail, every detail counts and even the smallest improvement can make a huge impact. I am a big man so I specialize in big man moves, post moves and face up moves etc, but I also know and regularly practice numerous guard drills, specially footwork and rhythm. I focus more on techniques and I use drills that put the client in in game situations where they have to use said techniques.

Client Reviews

My daughter has been working with Coach Oliver weekly for the past several weeks. He is a specialist in everything she needs to work on, and its been a terrific match-up. She is getting much more personal and position-specific training than she is able to get in a team practice, and Oliver knows how to motivate her to try her best. I feel so grateful that we found him!

My son had an excellent workout with Coach Oliver! This was my son’s first trial session and he wishes to have several more sessions with Coach Oliver again.

This was our first session with Coach Oliver, and it went great! My son enjoyed the session. I will be scheduling additional sessions soon.
