More About Coach Pierson

I started coaching 7 years ago when I was playing college basketball. I started at Harvard Westlake Middle School and won championship my first year. I stayed an additional year and and received a better job from Brentwood. I have learned many of my drills from experience and training with professional coaches and players. Although I have played with and against various professionals, I have learned the drills and incorporate them into what I teach. The drills I do can be made complex or simplified for any level which is a very important to show improvement and gain confidence in your abilities.

Played varsity for Taft High School in Woodland Hills, CA. Out of high school, I received a full scholarship to Loyola Maryland, a division 1 college for basketball. I completed 2 years at Loyola, then transferred to California State of Dominguez Hills. At California State of Dominguez Hills, I became a starter, leading scorer and shot the highest percentage in the conference at 47% from the 3.

Every training session is designed for each individual player. Some may need to work on speed, as others may need to improve shooting. Although each player is different, the main fundamentals will be covered in every session (ball handling, shooting, speed/agility, and defense.)

Pierson is an amazing coach. My son’s confidence improved. His basketball skills and he loves having basketball sessions with Pierson.he is very reliable, responsible and always on time. Recommend him 100%

Coach Pierson was so great with my 6 year old daughter. She wanted to gain confidence on the playground with the boys and in just the first hour she learned so much! Coach Pierson made it fun and she left with more confidence and new skills. Can wait to see how it goes!

My son had an awesome first session. Coach Pierson was very patient, professional and knowledgeable.

Great session. My son learned a lot and was pushed appropriately.

Sorry for the late review. Coach Pierson is a great Coach, and the boy likes the training method that the Coach using to train him, and we can see him improving. Thank you Coach.

Coach Pierson from the very first stages of introduction (communication prior to the first session) demonstrated a very positive and consistent attentiveness. He speaks directly and communicates clearly which led to a great end result for when we met for the first training session.

In terms of the training itself, again Coach Pierson scored very high. He was able to immediately find engagement with the young man I brought to him. This young man (15 years old) is usually a challenging one to keep motivated and inspired. Coach Pierson was able to hold the attention of the young man though the use of a few creative drills, putting the focus on simple action and movement, and by providing honest and encouraging verbal instruction/feedback throughout the session. It was a big help that Coach Pierson is committed to making sure that "Having fun" is purpose-built into all of the techniques he incorporates into his training sessions

This pupil is rare to unlikely praise to anyone who is brought in to coach or train him but he was telling me, with sincere excitement in his voice, how much he enjoyed this training and wants to meet again. We plan to work long and regularly with this great coach.

Coach Pierson is the one that can help improving your game physically and mentally. Taking with Coach Pierson two sections had benefited me more than years of training by myself.

Great coach for basketball skills, great coach for motivation, great coach for discipline. 10 out of 10

Very positive and encouraging with kids

Coach Pierson is awesome! Our son takes weekly private lessons with him and looks forward to his lesson every week. Pierson is very knowledgeable about basketball and especially how to teach basketball skills to kids. He is always on time and comes prepared with different training equipment. Every lesson Pierson evaluates our son's progress and works on his weaknesses and new skills. He knows how to approach kids and make them work hard on their game. Our son is 8 years old and is currently playing at a local park league. These side lessons are definitely helping him become one of the best players on his team.

Pierson is so great with my son! So great with the drills and building his confidence with the game.

Coach Pierson has done an awesome job taking an older athlete like myself and working the fundamentals in a way that directly transfers to game mechanics. Feels like I’m improving after every session!

Coach Pierson is awesome. He’s incredibly knowledgeable, but doesn’t speak over my 11 year old’s head. He has a great sense of humor, which is so important when motivating the kids. We’re so happy we found you!

Really patient. Great motivator. Pushes you to places you didn't expect to get at an exponentially faster rate than most would.

My son had a great time with Coach Pierson and after just one session developed a much better shot and confidence. Great work.

Coach Pierson is AMAZING!! After just one session, I saw a glimmer in my son's eyes that I hadn't seen before. Coach Pierson came in ready to work with my 16 year old and made him feel at ease. Coach Pierson is very patient and a breeze to work with. At the end of the session, my son said that he had fun and it was awesome. My son is looking forward to working some more with Coach Pierson. I will definitely recommend Coach Pierson as he's knowledgeable, has a great personality and overall great to work with.

Coach Pierson was amazing with our 7 year old charlie. From his first hello through the hour of training together coach Pierson made the experience fun yet challenging. We would recommend coach Pierson for any age child.

Coach Pierson was an excellent coach! Beside becoming a better basketball player I was physically pushed during every session. I saw exponential results. I was able to get a better grasp on proper footwork and why I'd do certain moves, which made me feel a lot more comfortable on the court. My jump shot greatly improved! Thank you Coach Pierson! I'll be signing up for more sessions immediately!

coach Pierson caters to every kids needs and really pinpoints the exact skills a player can improve upon, as well as strengthening strong skills the player already possesses. Pierson is always prepared for every session and brings advanced equipment. I would definitely recommend Pierson to train any basketball athlete looking to improve their game.

Pierson has helped my 12-year-old son's game immeasurably. His knowledge of the game and ability to assess a player's strengths and weaknesses are top notch. He tailors the training to the player. And his expertise doesn't end there. He's also incredibly knowledgeable about the psychological apsects of the game. I cannot recommend Pierson highly enough.

Pierson works well with studnets of all ages and abilities. His rapport and relationships with kids motivates them and really gets them excited about improving and succeeding in all areas of their life! He is a real asset to kids!
