Client Reviews

Coach Shelly is a great coach for my son. She practiced handling, passing, defense, shooting, layups. She also described how his development can change in later stages as he gets older. My son said she is good at explaining things. I recommend Coach Shelly to parents who want their kids to learn basketball fundamentals.

Coach Shelley was amazing! My daughter has a bit of social anxiety when meeting new people, coach Shelley put her at ease immediately. My daughter cannot wait to start sessions with her! She has awakened the love of basketball my daughter has. Very easy going and great coaching. Thank you coach Shelley!

Coach Shelley is extremely knowledgeable and provided us many tools for my girl to work on. She worked on assessing my daughter first to find out her level and then provided basic fundamentals (ball handling, form, drills etc..) during her first session. It is something that my daughter desperately needed. Coach Shelley is tough on her students and expects them to work hard so that they can be better. She does it in a way where her students want to work hard for her. We needed someone like her! I am grateful to have this opportunity for my daughter. We are looking forward in future sessions with Coach Shelley!

Coach Shelly is great! She is very knowledgeable and has a high level of experience. She will give you tools to take home and practice on your own. She is well connected and has already helped recommend me to different local leagues. Thank you Coach Shelly!

Coach Shelley,
The Lady Wildcats at the Waldorf High School so appreciate you coming out and working with us as a guest coach, helping us transition from a team of brand new, inexperienced players, to a competitive team. Your expertise on basics such as dribbling, passing, and overall concepts of basketball acuity got the girls excited about the sport and inspired. Your specific strategies and techniques helped us to our 7-0 start of the season. The girls really responded to your warm but direct instruction style. We look forward to having you work with the girls again next season, and plan on attending your basketball skills and fundamentals classes in between seasons to continue our growth as individuals and as a team. We offer our highest recommendation of your tremendous expertise. Thank you again!

Best regards,
Coach Castro
Athletic Director
Waldorf High School

Supportative & efficient.

My daughter just finished up 3 sessions with Coach Shelley and left feeling more confident in her shot and handle. Highly recommend her if you are looking for a personalized approach to bettering your all around game!!

My daughter had her first session with Coach Shelly and had fun learning fundamentals. Coach Shelly is a great coach and although it has only been one session, I would recommend her.

Shelly is a great coach. She asked questions first about what experience my daughter had and then tailored a nice routine for her. She worked with my daughter on each exercise breaking down the basics very well. She continuously explained and walked us through each repetition. She made it very easy to understand the proper techniques and mechanics involved in playing basketball. She then gave us routines to practice between our next coaching session. I already see some improvement. Equally important, my daughter now understands what she needs to change in her delivery to perform better. We are very pleased with the training and highly recommend Coach Shelly.

We had a great experience with Coach Shelley after only one session. She gave my son some homework (basketball drills) and on his first day practicing on his own he did really well. Previously my son was not motivated to practice on his own. Her coaching style has really motivated him to practice and he applied all of Coach Shelley’s pointers to his drills. I am noticing he is learning very quickly and already grasping what he was taught in his first session. My son is already feeling confident with his skills and what he was taught. I feel he will only get better from here with Coach Shelley.

Coach Shelley is amazing and she helped me a lot with my shooting form and tightening up my handles. She's supportive and would only want the best from you. She helps you improve on things you want and definitely would help you take your game to the next level!

My daughter has only had 2 sessions with coach Shelley and already she has a marked improvement. Shelley is encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable. My daughter enjoys their sessions and has grown tremendously in confidence as well as new skills. Thank you coach Shelley, we look forward to continuing to work with you :)

Our daughter had an amazing session with Coach Shelley. After just one session, she was highly motivated to follow Coach Shelley's advice and has practiced every day on the techniques they worked on in practice. Shelley's encouraging and direct style of coaching matched perfectly with our daughter's needs, and she both looks forward to continuing with Shelley, and has already recommended her to the other girls on her team. Excellent!

Coach Shelley did a great job with my 2 daughters aged 14 and 15. We are from out of town, and she was able to quickly figure our where the girls were at, and find ways to help improve their skills. She provided great energy and instruction. Coach Shelley left them with a number of ways to improve and some new drills to take home to work on.

Coach Shelley is a great coach!She was able to determine immediately what areas needed the most improvement with my son.Coach Shelley adapted her teaching style to just what my son needed to respond quickly. We highly recommend Coach Shelley!

coach Shelley is doing a great job with my daughter she has learn new techniques that make a difference on her daily practice at school

Coach Shelley is a great coach! I'm a rec player who's never learned the fundamentals and so wanted to start from scratch - essentially I asked Coach Shelley to train me like a beginner. Coach Shelley was great at explaining and demonstrating the basics and was patient with me even though I am terrible :) We went through a ton of drills and by the end of the session, I felt more knowledgeable and wanted to learn more. I highly recommend Coach Shelley to those looking to take their game to the next level!

Coach Shelley is amazing! If you are looking for someone who is talented, committed, knowledgeable, creative, professional and experienced, who will challenge your young athlete, look no further. Although my daughter has been playing organized basketball for 10 years, I immediately knew Coach Shelley would take my daughter to a whole new level of play. I quickly saw the benefit of one-to-one coaching as Coach Shelley adeptly zeroes in on the areas which will have an immediate impact. Coach Shelley insures your child is excited and motivated to keep learning and that shows up on the court. I have been extremely impressed! - Lew R.

Coach Shelley was AMAZING!!! She was able to determine immediately what areas needed the most improvement with our daughter. Coach Shelley adapted her teaching style to just what our daughter needed to respond quickly. She was very patient and we saw a definite improvement after just 1 session!! We hope to be working with her for a long time to come!

Very nice and kind. Thanks to her now my kids are great at basketball and they enjoy playing. I hope to see my kids succeed with her at basketball.

Coach Shelley quickly identified my daughter's strengths and weaknesses. She was able to immediately begin working on developing key areas I was focused on. She got my Sophmore daughter to understand things she had previously struggled with for years!

My son loves training with Coach Shelley. She is very knowledgeable and has many ideas on how my son can improve his game. She is always positive and kind with lots of enthusiasm! We would definitely recommend Coach Shelley to anyone wanting to improve their basketball skills.

Coach Shelley has been training my 13 year old daughter Shelby. In just a few sessions, coupled with Coach Shelley's progressive training techniques, we have seen appreciable improvement in Shelby's: ball handling; shooting mechanics; defensive technique; and mental toughness. We highly recommend Coach Shelley!

Coach Shelley Wong has been training my 13-year-old daughter Carina for the past year. My daughter has played multiple sports for the last 5 years and has only been playing basketball for 2 years. Coach Shelley has done a fantastic job of accelerating my daughter’s development by using her vast repertoire of training techniques. My daughter’s dribbling and shooting skills have improved tremendously over the course of the past year. This rapid growth is very important because Carina is playing against players that are much more experienced than her. Coach Shelley’s attention to detail has made Carina very disciplined in all aspects of her game. Carina loves the intensity of every training session with Coach Shelley because she says it prepares her for actual game speed and game conditions. Carina recently attended a UCLA Basketball Camp and was voted “Bruin of the Camp”. We owe a great deal of credit to Coach Shelley for developing Carina’s Basketball Game to such a high level. Thank you Coach Shelley!
For the last year, Coach Shelley has been training my son Alex (16-years-old) who plays for Marina High School and club, and my daughter Olga (13-years-old) who plays for Spring View Middle School, NJB and club. Coach Shelley is capable of customizing her training to the specific level of the athlete and provides a very personalized service. Both my kids have improved significantly in their ball-handling, dribbling and shooting skills. During her sessions, Coach Shelley provides very specific and accurate feedback, which helps athletes improve their skills and, at the same time, raises their basketball-IQ. I especially enjoy receiving feedback from Coach Shelley after our sessions, which helps me assess my kids’ progress and decide on the next steps in their athletic development.
Coach Wong’s approach to training young players is exceptional and yields results quickly. My daughter came to Coach Wong with very little experience and has improved drastically over the past 4 months. The detailed teaching of fundamentals along with innovative advanced drills has been more than impressive. Aside from greatly improving basketball skills Coach Wong’s training sessions are also assisting us with teaching valuable life lessons. Coach Wong has been a true partner with my daughter and us.
Coach Shelley Wong had been training my son Devon( 7-years-old) for over a month now and we have seen a tremendous amount of improvement in his skills. Devon's games are much better now from what he has learned through coach Shelley. Her coaching has developed my son's skills, technique, and helped his eye and hand coordination to become faster and more productive. Devon really loves the way his basketball handling has improved...He has been making more shots and making lots of assists for his team. Great work coach!!
I want to say thank you for your support and patience with Itzel. We think you're an amazing coach and if we ever have the opportunity to recommend you we will.
I’ve watched Shelley grow tremendously as a coach over the past three years at Mater Dei High School. She has an exceptional work ethic, is very bright and is a “student of the game”. Shelley has now decided to branch out into club basketball and training. Her ability to teach players the right way to play, stress fundamentals and develop a player’s understanding of the game is an asset to anybody she trains or coaches.
