More About Coach Shawn

4 Years Middle School Coaching at Grant Middle School (Marion , OH)
1 year at River Valley Middle School (earned a Championship 🏆)
5th Annual WhatEverItTakes Camp - great turnout and kids learn and apply what they get from it year in and year out.



Played college ball at West Liberty University three years. Indiana University of Pennsylvania for one. Career record of 126-15, Fortunate enough to play in 4 Regional Championships, 4 NCAA DII Elite Eight appearances, and two back-to-back NCAA National Championships. Regional MVP (2015).

My goal for you (the athlete) is to assess you first and foremost so I know what you are capable of doing. Each athlete , on the first workout will complete a WIT assessment.

Consequently, goals can be established and workout plans can be created in which I gladly enjoy!

My goal is to create a safe and progressive workout program. Understanding each client is different therefore each workout will be different as it fits the desired goals of that client

***Disclaimer: training with me will not guarantee you playing time. Training with me will not make you better in a few workout sessions. Training with me is not for every athlete. I tell you straight how it is because playing at a high level , that’s what coaches, GMs, managers do. There are NO guarantees in life. It is all about how much initiative you have.

My 14 year old son had his first session with Coach Shawn today. He worked my son really hard and he paid great attention to what he needs to work on. I was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge. I would recommend him to athletes that are serious about improving their game.

Coach Shawn’s knowledge of basketball and hard work ethic on and off court is exactly why I brought my daughter to him. He’s great with kids and can teach my daughter what she needs to be a great ball player.

Coach Shawn was great for my 11 year old. With his basketball season coming up, he was looking to get a jump on the season and to fine tune some things. While he was nervous leading up to it, Shawn jumped right in and focused on my son. And within minutes had loosened up and was having fun and getting a good basketball workout in. Looking forward to the rest of our sessions.

Quoted txt msg from my nephew: "The workout was great ! I’d love to work with him again he pushed me to the limit and I feel great." If you knew my nephew, his feedback speaks volumes. He has no problem calling things like they are, and the fact that he texted me almost right after his session is a great recommendation for Coach Shawn. I spoke briefly with Shawn beforehand and he was very accommodating and easy to speak with. My nephew wasn't anywhere near as eager to work with the other coaches he's used, and he still enjoyed them. I heard only positive things about Coach Shawn, and I'm happy to say that he definitely lived up to the hype. I would highly recommend him. Thanks again Coach Shawn for your time and expertise!! Keep up the good work. Your impact and influence does not go without notice. We'll be sure to sign up with you again.

My son loved his 1st training session with Coach Shawn and has been practicing and focusing on the fundamentals he has learned daily! He looks forward to his future sessions and continuing to improve his skills! We highly recommend Coach Shawn!!

Shawn was excellent with my 11 year old daughter. He was able to push her while encouraging her at the same time. My daughter is anxious to continue working with him and we’ll be recommending him to others.

Coach Shawn was excellent...Definatly worth the hour drive to take my son too..He showed him a lot of different techniques..most importantly he put all his attention to my son as soon. As he walked to thru the door...If your looking for that extra push for your kids to get them ahead of the game Coach Shawn is your guy...Will defiantly be making more trips to see him as much as we can...

Best Skill and Work workout setting ever he's patient and shows a kid what to do hands on very excellent he's going to end up getting a big time job in sports somewhere he knows his stuff 👍👍

Shawn is a dedicated coach who's love of the game shows in all he does . A truly valuable asset for any player who wants to work and improve all aspects of their game
