More About Coach Sam

I am a Sport Performance Coach and Director at a youth athlete facility in Redwood City CA. I have a little under 15 years experience coaching youth athletes from 8-18 years old in attributes such as elasticity, agility, speed, mechanics, strength, conditioning, all for sake of optimizing their athleticism/physicality. Academically my credentials are:

M.S. in Applied Exercise Science from Springfield College
B.S. in Exercise Science from Becker College
B.S.E. in Physical Education from Arkansas State University
Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist
Functional Movement Screen Certified (Level 2)
Neuromuscular Therapist (cervical/cranium, torso/pelvis, upper/lower extremity)

In high school I competed in all varsity team sports but track and football were primary. In college I was a D1 football athlete. After college I went on to coach Strength&Conditioning for pro and collegiate athletes but then became even more specific towards youth demographics because I saw the value was higher and gains much greater for the youth athlete population compared to adult athletes.

- Schedule the athlete’s initial assessment.
- Training session is coached in a 1-on-1 or 1-on-2 ratio of Coach-to-Athlete.
- All training sessions are 75 minutes long.
- Training frequency for youth athletes are logistical and sport dependent, ranging from 1-2 times per week during in-season periods and 2-6 times per week during off-season periods.
- Training sessions are specific to athlete needs (elasticity, agility, speed, mechanics, strength, conditioning, etc are determined and apportioned after the initial assessment).

Client Reviews

Coach Sam at PSS has made a massive difference in my sons athletic development and I couldn’t be happier with his progress. I certainly expected improvement in speed, agility and strength (which has exceeded expectations), but these other benefits of his training are what have truly astounded me: 1. My son’s been training at PRECISION for over 4 years and has had no real injuries in sports. As my son enters the phase of rapid growth change they put a focus on the science of proper body alignment and training which I believe optimally prepared his body to help avoid injury and perform at its maximum level. 2. My son genuinely wants to come to PRECISION twice weekly and work hard. Their program has fostered an attitude of personal development as it relates to diet and exercise that I am certain will last a lifetime. 3. PRECISION coaches connect with their athletes on a level that goes far beyond the typical coach/athlete relationship. This fosters and enthusiast attitude toward training and a maximum level of enjoyment to the point where I bring both my kids to PRECISION now. I highly recommend Precision Sport Science and Coach Sam and encourage anyone interested to give it a try.
My 16 year old son has been training at PRECISION since he was 9 and has not only greatly benefited from the experience but also remained injury free! He is hitting puberty both strong and balanced. Aidan is a very active athlete, since training with PRECISION he is performing better than ever on the field. He is faster, more explosive, and has better reaction times. Training 2 times a week year round has tremendously improved his overall athleticism. Aidan and I are very proud of the results he’s experiencing and he never wants to miss a training session. PRECISION has helped him set appropriate goals and achieve them. In addition to the coach’s expertise in training youth athletes, they are great role models and people. Their positive, “can-do” attitude has motivated our son to be his best in many areas of his life.
We had been hearing about Coach Sam and Precision Sport Science for a while but what finally made us apply for services were the results that we were seeing from their athletes. Both my daughter and son now train at PRECISION and we have seen immediate results. The coach spent more time, effort and energy then any coach my children have ever had. PRECISION’s sessions are focused on improving the athlete’s body, coordination, and athleticism. However, as parents what we notice is increased confidence from our kids, less injuries, and a renewed desire for their sport. I wish I could sign up! :)
