I am an expert in ball handling and shooting drills. I also have many drills that build confidence and decision making while on the court and during games. I will monitor and improve my players athleticism, including vertical, speed, agility, and strength. My players will start off by stretching, light warm up ball handling drills, shooting drills, agility drills, high intensity ball handling/shooting drills, decision making drills, and end with a light stretch. I am very intuitive to the small details in basketball that makes for huge improvements. I also attend games to be able to evaluate players during game situations instead of just one on one.

After one session our son was able to implement the things Solomon taught him and has regained his confidence! Looking forward to more sessions!

It's an absolute please having the opportunity to workout with Coach Solomon! His a great mentor and leader! Thank you for everything you've done for me.

Coach Solomon had my daughter driving to the rim with more confidence after just the first session.

Coach Solomon is a very well educated coach in the changing game of basketball. He is VERY motivational and helped push my son to expect more from himself and build confidence. His expertise is obvious from the beginning, and really is open and willing to share it. I would recommend Coach Solomon over and over again. I'm looking forward to see what my child applies to his game from what he has learned.

AWESOME! Coach Solomon has you working on skills that you can put into effect immediately to improve your game performance and knowledge. Action-packed and well worth it. Positive encouragement the entire time. Thoroughly enjoyed the coaching session and look forward to learning more from him.

Coach Solomon was excellent! His knowledge for the game and training techniques were incredibly useful and even after one session, I feel like a better player. He was encouraging throughout our session, while also pushing me to work hard. I feel well equipped with tools to improve and look forward to my next session with him!

Coach Solomon was awesome in our first session with our son Tanner who is 12 years old. He gained new skills he can practice and learned some great things even just from one session! Solomon was attentive and great at asking Tanner questions about his experience and where he wanted to improve and get better.

Coach Solomon was a great! He asked my son beforehand what he needed work on and got straight to it. Well worth the money!

Coach Solomon did a great job working with my son. He was positive, encouraging and most importantly knowledgeable. He asked what we needed to work on and got right to it. We will definitely do more sessions with Coach Solomon.

It was truly an awesome experience watching Coach Solomon working with my son. He is so knowledgeable of the game of basketball, he's an excellent teacher and builds up a players confidence while doing drills. My son left practice very tired but extremely happy and motivated. He can't wait for his next practice!

I am so thankful that I chose Coach Solomon. I am beyond impressed with the coaching and training he's taught my son. Within the first 10 minutes of the session my son was applying the proper fundamentals with results that I myself had never seen! Throughout the training my son was being instructed the proper fundamentals,work ethic and attitude to be a successful basketball player. I look forward to many more training sessions with Coach Solomon due to his coaching style and the results my son continues to exhibit.

Very knowledgeable. He is teaching my son 90% of the game, which is mental. The other 10% is physical, and that is something he is showing my son, but he'll have to do much of that on his own. Thanks coach!

Great 1st session. Trent learned many key moves and strategies in the 1st session that are sure to improve his game if he continues to practice them. Looking forward to the next session!

Coach Solomon was a great coach! He was very patient and observant of what my child needed to improve. We will most definitely be continuing with Coach Solomon!

My son had his first session today with Coach Solomon and he can't wait until the next session. Coach was super nice and professional; I highly recommend him!

Coach Solomon's immense knowledge of basketball was apparent within the first few minutes of training with my son. My son walked away from the session feeling more confident that he has in the 1+ yr he has been playing ball. Solomon gives great feedback and helps the kids apply the lessons being taught in a way they understand. Definitely recommend and we are looking forward to future sessions.

Very pleased with Coach Solomon after just 1 session, and cant wait to get to the next session.
Coach Solomon is encouraging, supporting, and brings a positive vibe to the training session, but at the same time challenges the athlete and pushes them out of their comfort zone which is great. Provides great pointers and skills to work on when not training with him.
I was very pleased with Solomon's interaction with the athlete and his hands on approach.

My son has really enjoyed working with Coach Solomon. He worked with him on his shot and ball handling skills and in just two sessions my son has improved. He also feels more confident and loves practicing the drills that Coach Solomon has shown him.

Recently worked out with Coach Solomon to prepare for high school and middle school tryouts for my two sons. Very knowledgeable, intuitive to small details and overall great coach. Highly recommended!!

UPDATE: The work Coach Solomon did with boys definitely showed. 1st day of pre-tryout camp went well last night. The high school coaches even had my oldest son running the point in the scrimmages (where he's been playing 3, 4 or 5 all his life). I'd say his handles and confidence have greatly improved from the session with Coach Solomon!!

Solomon is a great coach! His motto "repetition builds confidence" has helped my son a lot. His training techniques and fundamentals make for a great workout. He has great enthusiasm and show's patience by explaining each exercise thoroughly.

Coach Solomon was a very knowledgable, patient and positive coach. Our 13-year old learned a great deal in just three sessions. He introduced advanced skills through a variety of fun, challenging exercises. Our son loved working with him and hopes to continue. We would highly recommend Coach Solomon.

Great coach. He gives good information. After the first session I felt improvement.

Great first session with the coach. My kid and I are looking forward to working with him more.

Coach Solomon is a pleasure to work with. Provided excellent instruction and is very knowledgable. He gave us some great drills and pointers to work on. My son enjoyed working with him and is looking forward to another session. Thanks coach!

Coach Solomon is an extremely exceptional coach. He focuses on where I'm struggling and he takes his time on the techniques he teaches me to make sure I know it before he moves to the next technique. He doesn't rush me on anything. After 2 sessions I am a better athlete then I was when I first started. I recommend him to anyone that wants to improve their basketball skills.


We couldn`t be more please with Coach Solomon!! Not only is he a great coach,but also a great person.His coaching style fits Rayland perfectly and right now he`s our guy!

The session went very well he was able to assess where my son needed work in the first 10mins. He is a very athletic trainer so he can not only tell you but show you as well. My son is looking forward to use these new skills on the court and is excited for his next session.

Solomon has a great basketball IQ and really encouraged me and never got discouraged when I messed up. I feel like a better player over night!

Solomon is a great coach! He helps you develop your game. He helps you to develop the skills that will make you most successful in basketball. I enjoy training with him!

Solomon really took the time and made sure each drill was done properly before moving on. He even stayed later than the time to make sure it was done. He pushed my son the whole time.

Solomon was very helpful in reviewing the fundamentals and basics of basketball. His knowledge and tips were very useful. The advice he gave will be very helpful in developing my basketball game to a higher level.
