Great job!

Awesome first session, excited to see what’s to come. My son really enjoyed it and learned a lot!

He’s very nice coach.

Coach spent time closely working on fundamentals with my son.

This is our 3rd session with Rafael. He definitely knows how to train on the fundamentals and get the best out our 11 year old son.

Coach Rafael taught my 10 year old more in one private session than he had learned in 2 years of basketball camps combined. He was patient and pushed him at just the right level
that my son needs. We are excited to go back next week!

Coach Rafael was tremendous. We would definitely recommend him. He developed a very nice rapport with our son during his program. Coach Rafael demonstrated a great knowledge of basketball training techniques that helped improve our son’s skills and confidence. His patience during his coaching sessions was remarkable. We are very happy with the outcome.

Very knowledgeable. Understands the details needed in the fundamentals of the game and communicates to the kids in a manner they can easily understand.

Great coach! My sons confidence & skill has improved. Highly recommend

Great attention to detail

Nice Coach

Coach Rafael is awesome. My 11 year old is really enjoying his up beat personality!

Awesome person & trainer. Coach Rafael uses a modern approach to his training techniques. He has a keen sense of recognizing your child’s weakness & strength, which allows him to tailor a specific program for his clients. My 7 year old son who is currently part of coach Rafael 1 on 1 program has shown remarkable progress just within a 3 week time span. Most important noticeable change I’m currently witnessing other than my son’s improved skill set, is how much fun he’s having while learning the game of basketball. That is truly a testament of Coach Rafael’s patience and remarkable ability to communicate at a level my son positively responds to. I personally recommend coach Rafael to any parent or athlete looking to improve their GAME AND BASKETBALL IQ..


Great coach. Luckily he worked with both. My son and daughter which are at different levels.

He was able to point things out that my son needed to work on. He provided feedback after every session and gave him drills to practice. He provided encouragement to increase my sons confidence.

Coach Rafael was great!! I would highly recommend him. He was kind,patient ,and very helpful. He worked me out hard with well thought out drills and in game situations. He also gave me great feedback on things I can improve on can't wait for my next session!

Excelent Training, Rafael was very clear giving instructions. I highly recommend Rafael, very profesional and knowledge.

Coach Rafael has been amazing working with my son. He became discouraged playing a game he loves, as a result of being put in a position that he did not have the confidence to play. He was at the point of quitting basketball. Coach Rafael worked on building his confidence through encouraging words and hard practice. He has taught him not only the skills to improve his game but how to work through the emotional challenges of being frustrated and to never give up, never settle and set your goals high.

On time - Professional - Organized - and EXTREMELY helpful.
Highly ecommend.

He is absolutely awesome. I will recommend him to other Parents.

So far so good, Coach Rafael is patient yet firm and that’s exactly what my daughter needs. We both enjoyed the experience so much we booked another session immediately and plan to find a way to continue at least 2 days a week. I definitely recommend his knowledge and ability to demonstrate what he wanted and dissect what needed to be corrected is something that stood out to me as well as a Coach myself.

I heard from several people that Rafael Fuentes was the go-to guy when it comes to basketball specific training, so I figured I would try it out. After a few weeks of training with the Rafael methods, my body felt great and I was moving better than ever! After a few month of training, my athleticism was better than ever. My ball handling ability reached new levels and I learned new offensive moves every day. My explosiveness paired with my improved ball handling drastically improved my offensive game. Rafael is an expert in anatomy, physiology and biomechanichs and he has extensive knowledge for the game. He really knows how to apply science to basketball and improve players like myself. I would recommend his programs for anyone who wants to improve their game. Thank you Rafael!
