Client Reviews

Coach Richard is an elite trainer!!!! He is very knowledgeable of basketball from the mindset to the basketball court. He has a show & tell teaching style with self confidence building mannerisms which is important for growing teens like my son. My son is eager to train with him and I couldn't be happier for the decision to book him with so many to choose from! If you are looking to help your teen take their high school game to the collegiate level - Coach Richard is the trainer for you!!! In the words of coach Richard to my son "you're either in or out and if you want in this is what it takes! "

Corky McMullen, Rutgers Basketball*

It gives me great pleasure to provide a factual account of the experience, skills and passion that Coach Richard Brunson has in mentoring young men and women through the game of basketball. Having a first hand view of Coach Brunson during his playing days as a standout at Rutgers University and from his documented stellar high school career in Queens, NY obviously provided him with an excellent foundation to administer the fundamentals. Without hesitation I'd recommend Coach Brunson to be the growing seed to help your game blossom

Rich Brunson is an exceptional teacher of the game. He knows how to develop players and get the most out of them through his skill development. I have known Rich for many years and would trust him with any player looking to improve on their game

Mike Falco/Hunterdon Central Head Coach*

Rich Brunson has trained numerous players in our program. By teaching the fundamentals, he is able to bring out the best in each player. Coach Brunson also works on both the physical and mental aspect of the game. Very impressive! I would strongly recommend Coach Brunson to anyone hoping to play at the high school level or higher
