I hadn't been sure about the effectiveness of basketball personal training before my son started Coach Oswald' sessions. His first session was full of energy and passion, pinpointing my son's weakness. When I felt the first ten minutes like an hour, I realized this was what my son really needed. He was selected as one of MVPs for this season!! I would strongly recommend Coach Oswald.

Wasn’t too sure what to expect, but upon meeting Coach Os and seeing how patient , meticulous and knowledgeable he was, my wife and I are absolutely thrilled with the choice we made. Every session that we’ve had thus far, we’ve watched our child gain confidence, and knowledge of the game. We look forward to the continued growth. Overall, Coach Os is great. He makes learning the game of basketball fun for the kids. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is serious about their child learning the game of basketball.

Coach Oswald did a great job working my son at the appropriate skill level. We were on spring break so we risked the coach going to easy or too hard for him, but it was perfect.

Coach Oswald was GREAT!! Very patient, took time to access, make corrections, motivate. Pushes past comfort. Excellent for young players. Will definitely boost my sons confidence and skill. Would highly recommend Coach Oswald.

I recommend Coach Oswald to any player that wishes to increase both their skill level and work on their mental game. He is patient, positive and motivates players to work hard. His coaching has helped my son tremendously improve his game.

Coach oswald is to the point, serious and effective! We are looking for a skilled coach who really knows how to challenge as well as communicate well. We will be continuing with him as the coach to help my son go to the next level!

Coach Oswald never got back to me after numerous messages and a phone call.

Coach Oz coached my three kids aged 9, 13 and 15 and all 3 loved the way he made them sweat, work hard, and think. He is tough but always knows when to give a high five to boost you to the next level. My kids not only enjoyed his coaching, they really learned a lot from him and look forward to their next sessions.

Coach Oswald is great, my son loves his first session. Definitely helpful to improving his basketball skills. I would recommend Coach Oswald.

Coach Oswald is a great coach. He made sure that the workout was done when i finally did what i was supposed to do. He has a great routine and can help anyone get better. Definitely an amazing coach.

Great first session.

Coach Cross is a great coach. He pushed me from the very start of our workout. He taught me a lot in being a guard and gave me different scenarios to work with. He help me find a team for the summer and is easy to contact. Easily one of the best in the business

My son Viktor was happy to train with Oswald. Oswald is extremely good at training skills and game strategy at a very high level. My son was completely fond of Oswald. I strongly recommend Oswald's training sessions to anyone interested in learning the game of basketball or looking to improve and take their game to the next level. If we have a possibilty we'll cooperate with Oswald once again.

We had a great first session with my 6 year old. Coach Oswald is great with little kids. We look forward to more sessions in the following weeks. We learned some great new drills. Coach Oswald is very responsive to e-mails and easy to schedule.

Coach oz has done a tremendous job for me on and off the court as a person, coach, and trainer throughout my career. Every time i got off track with my confidence as a basketball player he always found a way to lift me up and make me better as a player with my confidence. I don't know where i would be without him at this point of my basketball career.
Coach OZ has a lot of knowledge of the game and when he's working with players, whether they're beginners or high profile players he is always teaching. He is one of the best in the business
