Client Reviews

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.

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
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
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
Coach Rich Brunson is as good as it gets when it comes to teaching the game of basketball. He has a unique & positive way of reaching athletes of all ages. Rich is as good a person as he is a teacher. Working with Rich; you will improve immensely on and off the court.
