Client Reviews

Coach Pele was very flexible in working with our schedule and has a fast response time with emails. My son has enjoyed working with him and learning new skills. We have only had three training times but have already signed up for more!

My 12yr old son really liked Coach Pele, as Coach emphasized an age appropriate level of instruction, correction and motivation. I heartily recommend him.

Coach Pele is a great coach! My son really likes him. For the first session, they had warm up exercises and then started dribbling and shooting, etc.

Great with the kids

The experience was excellent! One of the best coaching experiences we have ever had! We were happy with the instructions and we saw improvements right away in our 15 year old. Coach Pele is a true professional.

Coach Pele has been a great resource for my Middle School kids in assisting them with skills development in a positive and motivating environment.

Believing my son would need multiple sessions to learn how to be more consistent with his shots, Coach Pele has taught him this with just one session. Coach Pele was on-time, professional, and showed an authentic interest in helping my child achieve his goals.

Coach Pele is making a difference on my son’s approach to game. I see improvement after 2 sessions. Going for a 3rd, 4th, 5th......

A nice coach! He helps a lot to exercise well

I wish all of my children's mentors/coaches were like Coach Pele. He immediately establishes a strong work ethic and sets expectations. For younger athletes he is VERY encouraging as they are developing. My younger son saw what he was doing with my older son and wanted to be coached as well by Coach Pele. So they are both taking lessons now. He not only works on skills but the conditioning that is needed to be a strong basketball player. I know that my boys will carry through their years the hard work ethic that Coach Pele is instilling in them. I can't thank him enough.

Coach Pele is a great coach. I've truly enjoyed watching him work with my son. He has a lot of experience and is quiet knowledgeable of the game and fundamentals. He's extremely patient and challenges my son when needed. My son has learned so much from Coach Pele and is already a better athlete because he has been working with Coach Pele. I'm so happy we chose to work with Coach Pele. He's amazing!

Coach Pele,

Is a fantastic teacher and coach! His style of connecting with his students is impressive. We have signed up for 5 more sessions, our son looks forward to his training sessions.

S. Horner

Coach Pele is a great coach! fun to train with, encouraging, have improved significantly training with Coach Pele.

My son has had 2 sessions with Coach Pele thus far. They have both gone great. He is very personable, and very knowledgeable about the game of basketball. He pushes and motivates my son to be better. It is a training session full of training from beginning to end. Thanks Coach!

Great coach, really has a passion for trying to make you excel and get better. If you’re looking for someone to make you better then go to coach Pele.

Pele is very good in working with the need of the athlete

Coach Pele is a delight. My son who recently transitioned into basketball after suffering a concussion in football is so excited to work with Coach. He looks forward to his training sessions and is motivated and ready to build on his current weaknesses in the game. Coach Pele is easy to work with, he's honest, timely, organized, communicative, dedicated and so far has been a pleasure to connect with. I'm happy I took the time to look for a trainer that clearly loves what he does and is motivated to motivate our youth. If you're looking for a good coach. Stop looking. You've found him!!!!!!

Pele is a great coach, enthusiastic and works with you to identify where you need work.

Coach Pele is great, he makes sure he utilizes every minute during each session. His skills and continued encouragement throughout his sessions reflects his experience and love for the sport. My nephew really enjoys the time spent with coach Pele.

Today was the first day of basketball training for my two sons. Coach Paelay interacted well with my kids. He showed them a few drills and ball handling techniques. His attitude and verbal communication was very professional and encouraging. I can't wait to see what tomorrow holds!!!!

Pele is very talented and incredibly patient with my son. He works with him on skills that are necessary to be successful. I also customizes the workouts each session so that my son is getting a new and different session each time. He is a great trainer and I would certainly recommend him to others.

Coach Pele is a great instructor. His knowledge of the game as well as his ability to communicate to players is outstanding. He works kids hard with drills that develop skills and sharpen basketball instincts while constantly encouraging the kids.
The follow up emails go a long way in reinforcing my son to want further improvement.
I would highly recommend Pele and continue to refer him to friends of mine.
We will continue using Pele.

Pele is a great coach. He's coached my son and me so I'm speaking from both a parent's perspective as well as a customer's.

Coach Pele has exactly what it takes to motivate and elevate our 15 year old. The first workout was outstanding and we are coming back for more - thanks Coach!

Coach Pele, has excellent patients but remains stern enough for young athletes who's young minds wander. I have two sons whom train with Coach Pelectric and we look forward to a long productive relationship on the court. Thanks for your efforts Coach Pele, keep up the good work!

Coach Pele,
He is a very good coach. What I like he make you work hard but while you are working hard Coach Pele is pushing and teaching you. Like KD said hard work beats talent.

This is James' second session with Coach Pele. Days after the first session, James had his first basketball game with his team. My husband and I immediately noticed James' improved dribbling and passing skills, and his confidence on the court...and so did James. So much so, that he eagerly anticipated his second session. Coach Pele, being flexible, incorporated dribbling full court, slowing down, and finishing the lay up into his second session, even though he had not planned to work on such. James is already inquiring as to if he is having another session for the 3rd week in a row! We definitely recommend Coach Pele because, as James says, "he is a better coach" and teacher than I!

Pele has been the consummate professional. He has been very patient with my seven year old. He does a wonderful job with scheduling and communication.

Highly recommend. A++

My 8 year old son has had eight lessons with Pele and ball handling/overall knowledge of the game has improved dramatically. My son has great connection with Pele and continues to improve. He needs to be pushed and Pele is providing the right pressure to increase his abilities.

Excellent coach!! My son looks forward to working out with Pele and is learning a lot of great moves that will help him in the games.

Coach Pele B. P. is a wonderful one on one coach. He knows the game well.He teaches you every fundamental that you need to know. I will recommend to anyone who is looking for someone to teach and show them the game.

Pele is a hard working player who has a professional mentality, always ready to take the next step in his career and improve.
