More About Coach Prince

In high school I was always drawn to coaching and training others in basketball and fitness during which I worked with around 20 kids my age or younger who came to me for guidance. Officially I have been coaching for 3 years and have worked with Niagara Studio, PPA, headfirst, and several former professional/collegiate players. Over the past 3 years I have been blessed to have worked with over 200 kids and counting. I have worked with all levels from young beginner to D1 athletes.

In high school I played on Long Reach and Howards varsity teams on top of the number 1 travel team in the area during the time. During my time with the Maryland Jaguars I was able to help the coach put a team together from scratch and go on to play numerous undefeated seasons and take home the championship trophies. After blowing out many of the local high school teams and the top private schools we got invited to play in the adult league my senior year. After high school I ended up hanging up the jersey to pursue entrepreneurship, but have found my way back to the basketball court.

A typical session will start with a goal optimized warmup followed by a mastermind segment where the athlete and I discuss a certain topic that applies to both the workout and life improvement. Foundation is key so to get into the workout we will go through a series of workouts/drills that set the proper techniques up for our focus that day. Depending on how fast the athlete picks up the concepts I will either increase the intensity of the specific exercise or reserve 10 minutes towards the end for a burnout challenge.

Prince was great working with our son who hasn’t had much one-on-one coaching. Improved from the first lesson and he can’t wait to go back.

Prince was fantastic to work with. He really focused on fundamentals and was a huge help in correcting g some basic form errors for my son.

Coach Prince was incredibly patient with my son. He assessed his current level, broke down drills in a way my son could easily follow and offered encouragement throughout the session. It was exactly what my son needed.

Coach Prince took a lot of time in the first session to get to know my son. My son is 9 and has never played basketball and was very intimidated but Coach Prince was patient and encouraging and is helping him start with the basics. I would recommend Coach Prince to any child at any level of basketball.

Prince is the best coach I have ever had. He is very strategic in the way he coaches. The best traits I believe Prince has include: being able to change drills and workouts depending on the persons strength and weaknesses. Mixing up his workouts with conditioning, shooting drills, dribbling drills, etc… Along with past experience. With all the drills comes the great form that he teaches. I fully recommend Prince for anyone who wants to improve and or level up there basketball game.

Coach prince is a great training coach. I am I am a beginner at basketball and he didn’t make me feel dumb. After one session I feel exponentially more knowledgeable. I would recommend him to all my friends.

We had our first session with Coach Price and I was very impressed with him. He is kind, knowledgeable, and can read his athletes extremely well. He has a great ability to adjust his drills to create success without judgment. He is a 'natural'. We already signed up for more sessions.

Great first-time session for my high school daughter. She was comfortable working with him and he was very professional, with an excellent facility. He tries to understand the student's goals and then tailors the approach to meet them. We will be continuing sessions with Coach Prince.

My son just had his first session. He came away really happy with the experience and is looking forward to getting more scheduled soon

Great coach! I highly recommend!

I would highly recommend Prince as a coach! My son is a beginner but very enthusiastic. Prince did a phenomenal job working with him on the basics and providing specific drills he can do on his own to continue improving at home.

I’m very satisfied with his work.

I initially signed my 12 year old son up for 4 sessions with coach Prince. After observing the 1st session, I knew that coach Prince was precisely the type of coach and person that my son needed to properly learn and develop his skills. Prince has a fantastic demeanor and personality and as others have mentioned the right kind of patience needed to develop skills and confidence in young kids. I've committed to 6 months of training and have no doubt my son will be drastically improved in all facets of the game.

I am very happy that my son, Blake, is being coached by Prince. Coach Prince is not only very knowledgeable and skilled in basketball, but he is fantastic at teaching and coaching kids. He understands what it takes to teach younger kids and has a lot of patience which is why we singed up for the summer clinic.

My 11-year-old son and his friend took their first lesson with Coach Prince. It was their first even basketball lesson. Coach was very patient and taught them basic dribbling and shooting skills. We could see improvement already after the first lesson. The best of all, Coach Prince has access to an indoor facility, which is a huge plus during the hot summertime.

Coach Prince N. is an excellent coach. After just the first session with him. I was able to learn new aspects about about dribbling a basketball I never knew. He pays good attention to detail and gives sound advice. I will definitely take multiple sessions with him.

Coach Prince Niagara is fantastic! His ability to quickly make my daughter feel comfortable and at ease was phenomenal. We have had two sessions with him and my daughter’s ability and skill improvement is noticeable. He understands not only game mechanics, but takes the time to explain the “why” behind his direction and suggestions. My daughter is excited to continue training with him.

Great coach. Really strong on fundamentals. Looking forward to more lessons.

Although this is our first session, we still have 4 more weeks to go but the first impression matters, he showed that he really knew what he was doing, the way he kept observing my son and correcting his mistake was very interesting, and I could see also that he is very good with kids

Very professional and understands what you want.

Hey Prince - thanks so much for being a great coach for these guys! You really motivated them to play and to do their best and stick with it, even though this was their first season of organized hoops. We will definitely request you when we sign up for PPA again. Best of luck in the mean time!
Hi Coach! Thanks so much for the great season. The kids really enjoyed having you as a coach and seriously learned and improved so much. It’s a group that was a mix of kids who had never played beyond gym class so what you were able to do was pretty incredible. And I drove a group of the kids to most practices and they only had positive things to say about you. These guys don’t holdback so that’s saying something. We would love to return, but we are moving to Louisiana at the end of the school year. I’m sure you can keep the rest of the team rolling. I’ll send a note to the director letting him know how much we enjoyed having you as a coach. Thanks again!
