Fantastic Coach. Tailored his training to fit the need of all three of my sons.

My son only recently started training under Coach Stanley, but it is clear immediately that his system emphasizes and builds on fundamentals. His sessions have been very busy and productive; it leaves my son physically invested and working hard all the time. He has very good rapport and makes it always clear what it is that he is trying to accomplish with each drill and session. Communication with him is easy: he is responsive and accommodating, schedule-wise. Overall, we are excited about the direction that my son is going under Coach Stanley and we'll be happy to provide an updated review in the future!

PS: At the first session, my wife got acquainted with another mom, and she was raving about the progress that her son has made under coach's teaching in a relatively short period of time.

He knows a ton about basketball. I wish we would have found him months ago

Coach Stanley has done a fine job with my son. The progress is going well. The first time my son meet with Coach Stanley we talked about what my son needed to work on. Coach Stanley went through his evaluation process and after a few workouts give positive feedback about my son's skill set and talked about my son's strengths and areas of development. One of the areas that Coach Stanley suggested needed development was my son's jump shot. After discussing with Coach Stanley, he designed a workout that focused on not only his jump shot but also other areas that still needs development. Great Job Coach Stanley and keep up the great work!

Excellent work out and can already see improvement in shooting and ball handling.

Coach Stanley has done a great job with my son. I think coach Stanley is a really great coach.

Coach Stanley is great. He is quick in recognizing areas that need improvement and knows the drills and exercises to correct. He gives a great work out even to those athletes that think they are in shape. My daughter worked with Stanley for 3 sessions so far but have recommended him to many of the players on her basketball team. The workout is tough but she enjoys it!

Coach Stanley's sessions are more than just drills, he incorporates fitness and strength training which is exactly what my son needs! We will be booking more sessions right away.

Coach Stan is great. He analyzed my 12 yr old son's basketball abilities on the first session and told him the skills he needed to work on.

Coach Stanley quickly keyed in on the skills my son needed to work on - in addition to coaching what to do, he explains how and why you do it. My son feels that he learned more in 1 hour with Coach than he did the last 2 years of HS ball. I would strongly recommend Coach Stanley.

Outstanding!! Knowledgeable. My daughter look forward to her session. Coach Stanley works to tailor what she needs.

Coach Stanley is a great coach. His experience coaching at the AAU and the college level helps him improve every individual no matter where you are. Also he pushes you to your limit so you can get better everyday. Highly recommended!

Coach Stanley pushed me to my limit. After one session I already saw an improvement in my footwork and jump shot. He motivates you and helps you to reach your full potential.

My daughter is just a beginner at basketball and Coach Stanley made her feel at ease during her lesson. I found that he really focuses on the student and makes them practice the correct technique until they have it right while maintaining patience and professionalism with his student.

Coach Stanley is amazing. Both the physical and skills training are outstanding. Nothing but positive things to say about him.

Very detailed and very demanding without going to far. Great at keeping younger players on task
