Coach Brunson was great! Great understanding of the fundamentals of basketball and is very motivated to help athletes succeed. Definitely would recommend to others

Coach Brunson is a great coach. He has excellent drills and key points to point out. I definitely recommend him, he’s all for the kids and will help your child improve from day 1. Definitely choose him for your child’s training.

My daughter , 11 years old had her 1st session today. She plays travel. But she is relatively new to basketball compared to her peers. She has legit talent but needs to learn basics. She needs to be pushed and she needs to work. She has 2.5 years till high school. Coach Richard is a legit coach. He has a great way of talking and getting is points across and in one session he changed a lot of bad habits .. We intend to keep the sessions going as long as he will have us. Coach Richard is an experienced coach in playing and coaching. Good players don't make good coaches however he is a very good coach. I am not an expert but I've been around sports all my life and I know BS when I see it.. and what he brings to the table is LEGIT. I really cannot wait to continue with this. Mike W...

Coach Richard worked great with my 8 year old son. He had a blast.

To be the best, you have to train with the best! Coach Richard did an awesome job with my son today. He kept him focused and gave him some great pointers. My son left smiling with so much confidence. He can’t wait to train again with him. Thank you so much!!

I had a great first session with coach Richard. His knowledge and wisdom seem unparalleled and he brings great passion to the game of basketball and to coaching. He also has a really fun attitude and is very personable. I look forward to booking more sessions with him.

If you want the best, you pay for the best. Coach Rich's hourly rate may be higher than others, but honestly, it should be even higher. He is that good. He starts with the basics - and the basics are tough when you never learned them correctly. However, he doesn't just teach your child the physical aspect of basketball - how to improve your shooting, dribbling, etc., he teaches your child the psychology of basketball - how do you use your face to intimidate your opponent, how to out-think the other team, how to create a presence on the court with just your body movements, what to look for in the opposing team on the court, how to behave on the bench, I could go on and on. In one session, my son learned more than he learned with 100's of lessons with other coaches. Highly recommend Coach Rich.

We immediately saw improvement after one session. Coach R. does a great job in building confidence and knowledge in the game. I highly recommend him to any athlete looking to up there game.

Amazing coach. Coach Brunson reviews every little flaw of the certain exercise. He really helps you out on what you need! 5 stars!

Coach Richard is outstanding. My son really enjoyed his session. Before starting the session, Coach Richard took time to speak with my son to get to know him, and understand what my son was hoping to get out of their time together. During the session, Coach Richard was thorough, challenging, and fun. My son loved it, and we're already scheduling our next sessions.

Amazing coach. After just one session so far I already have improved my basketball skills more than I could ever have on my own. Really is able to improve a players weakness and use their strengths to excel at the game. Great for anyone trying to make their basketball team or just improve their skills in basketball altogether.

I just took my 11 year old son for his first session with Coach Richard B and I must say.. He responded positively right away! His skill techniques were excellent. My son now seems more motivated about playing. Coach Richard's style of teaching is a perfect mix of firmness along with positivity! One of the better trainers you'll probably run into! Well worth the investment!

Coach Rich is a great coach. He is encouraging and dedicated to ensure you elevate your game and reach your potential. I highly recommend coach.

My son had always been skeptical about working one-on-one with a coach, but Coach Richard completely changed his mind! He presented exactly the right balance of challenge and encouragement, and I can already tell the coaching is going to be a great experience for my son. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to improve their game and play with more confidence.

Coach Richard was terrific. My son felt comfortable with him right away and in a short time coach had made adjustments to his shooting technique and footwork that provided immediate improvement. I would recommend anyone looking for a positive, knowledgeable and patient coach work with Coach Richard.

My daughter left this first session exhausted and inspired - so much that she was writing notes in her journal! Looking forward to our next session with Coach B.!!

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! "

Coach Richard is a person who can relate well with kids on their level. He makes them feel at ease with his friendly, easygoing personality. he knows the game, teaches fundamentals and we saw immediate improvement in our son's ability and confidence.

Coach Richard is a fantastic basketball coach. He is very experienced and eager to work with you to improve any and all aspects of the game. Coach Richard is very friendly and I highly recommend his talents.
