Client Reviews

Coach Rick demonstrates a great knowledge of the game and a coaching style that effectively evaluates the player's abilities including physical conditioning, mental toughness, and basketball skills. The training is then focused to develop the player in all of those areas. Coach is patient and encouraging, while maintaining a level of expectation that keeps my son focused before, during and after the sessions. The training time is used effectively, with appropriate explanation and repetition of each drill to help the player learn the techniques so they can practice and develop further after the session. Coach has been an effective communicator and flexible with his schedule to accommodate our needs. My son has enjoyed the experience working with Coach Rick and I highly recommend.

Coach Rick is who we are looking for as a personal coach. He arrived on time and finishes with an extra 30 minute bonus. He wasn’t rushing and took his time to make sure that my son really understood the instructions and executing them right whatever he was asking him to do. He saw immediately the weaknesses and the things that my son is lacking and right away addressing them. Something that is very important because you have that feeling that no time was being wasted from so many drills and you are still not getting that improvement that you are hoping for. My son liked him and immediately asked me to book for another session with Him. We will definitely be asking for Coach Rick’s help again. Thank you Coach Rick!

Coach Rick had an initial session with my 11-year-old son yesterday, and my son’s skill level and commitment to the game has already improved. After the session I could not get my son inside the house. My son was outside on the Court for hours after practicing with Coach Rick working on what he had learned. I was super impressed with Coach Rick’s ability to immediately assess my son’s abilities and deficiencies and start training him instantly. They worked on drills most of the session, but I could also tell they were discussing the game. My son would never have received this type of personal and experienced training from a Coach in recreational basketball. Coach Rick also has a relationship with the facility we used. The kids know him and the manager or owners know him well. Moreover, it is a facility for basketball only, unlike those facilities that are chopped up into parts for soccer, football and birthday parties. I was so impressed with Coach Rick during the first session that I signed up for bulk sessions with Coach Rick.

My 12 year old son worked out with Coach Rick for the first time today. We both walked away feeling good about our choice to work with Coach Rick. He displayed great knowledge about fundamental, often overlooked by coaches. His knowledge spills over from being in real game time situation which helped my son validate the coaches instructions.

The defined skills training were very beneficial and applicable to today's game. Coach helped focus on direct concerns my son and I had regarding his skill development. Coach Rick possesses a level of patience that helped to keep frustration levels down which helped increase reps and quality.

Overall my son and I are pleased with Coach Rick'sefoorts

Coach Rick is awesome!! My daughter has only had 2 sessions with him and already I can see a huge improvement with her basketball skills as well as her confidence level. He designed the training session around what she specifically needed to work on. Not only did he work on fundamentals but he also is helping her to improve her overall body strength. I am definitely booking more sessions and look forward to what the future holds with him continuing to work out with her on a consistent basis.

Coach Rick is one of the best trainers my son has ever worked with. He has a way of communicating with athletes based on his experiences as a basketball player at every level. As a parent who has been searching for a coach to invest in my son's dreams to play at a high level, I am overjoyed to have found Coach Rick. It is important to me who guides my son's developmental process. It feels as if I have been all over Maryland trying to find the right basketball trainer, but I can confidently say my search is over! You will not be disappointed if your child trains with Coach Rick. He is respectful, courteous and professional. He teaches game performance or in his words...skills not drills. If your son or your daughter wants to become better basketball player...try Coach Rick.

We had a group session with Coach Rick and it was great! He was challenging but supportive. Altogether it was well worth the money and I would highly recommend Coach Rick.

Coach Rick is an excellent coach he's teaching my son everything that he needs to know and needs work on

Coach Rick has brought a whole new dynamic to my son's training efforts. Mainly accountability toward his personal growth as a player of the game and growing as young man. My son will be graduating high school and is still striving to find his path. I would recommend Coach Rick to any aspiring basketball player from beginner to professional. His training methods are out of the box and help pinpoint needs instead of wasting time.

Coach Rick was excellent with my 8 year old. He quickly assessed Cameron's needs and worked with him. My son already feels more confident and came right home to practice what he learned. We are looking forward to working with coach Rick again. Highly recommended!
