More About Coach Steven

I am currently the Bayside HS Boys Varsity basketball coach. I have coached at the high school level, and was a manager at the college level for 4 years. I also coach AAU basketball and have trained athletes from ages 9-18. My specialty is working with boys in that age range.

I was named the NY Post Basketball coach of the year in the 2011-2012 season. I led my team to the final four of the NYC playoffs as a 38 seed. I also won a Boys JV Queens championship in the same season for Bayside HS.

The specific plan is teaching each student the fundamentals of the game. The proper way to shoot from hand placement to feet placement to being able to square to the basket. I also work on ball handling and foot work using plyometric skills along with other necessary skills to fix any foot work issue. The sessions are designed for you to improve your skills and be able to utilize what we learn in game play situations.

Coach Steve is fantastic!

(no details provided)

Coach Steven was excellent and has a deep knowledge of the game and how young people need to practice! His drills and pointers were valuable for my son who is trying to improve to try out for his high school team. Even after one session my son got a good sense of what he needs to improve and what would make his form better. I would highly recommend Coach Steven!

Coach Steve has been a pleasure to train with. He is very patient and attentive with my 7 year old son. My son has learned foundational basketball skills, and my son has improved overall since training with Coach Steve. Another convenience is that Coach Steve is very flexible and understanding when it comes to scheduling. He arrives to lessons prepared and on time. We look forward to continuing our training sessions with Coach Steve.

My 16 year old daughter had a great first basketball session with Coach Steven and we definitely will be continuing with him. She came away from the session with at least three concrete things to try in her next game, which was great. But what I am most pleased about is that he made establishing a rapport with her a priority. My daughter really appreciated that he asked her questions about her game, really listened to her, and then incorporated that into the coaching plan. We're really looking forward to her working with Coach Steven over the summer in advance off her varsity tryouts next school year.

Appreciate you big time coach .. I definitely refer anyone training to train with coach Steve thank you

My first impression of coach Steven, was that he is an excellent communicator, and he know how to break down the work out to the kids level. Our first session was great, my son enjoyed the session. He learn some new fundamentals, which he will use to improve his game.

Coach S is a great coach. He was patient, understanding and also went into the why to do certain things, not just why to do it.

Although weather has been cold, coach Steven keeps up with schedules and cheer my boy with positive sprit during session.
Look forward to having more sessions with him.

An excellent trainer . Coach Steven is currently helping me improve in basketball and he pushes me to do my best . He encourages me to keep working harder and is by far the best trainer I’ve had . If you are looking for a trainer I most definitely recommend him .

My son had a great session with Coach Steven. He learned drills to help his overall game, plus specific skills for his position. He is definitely excited about working with him again in the future.

dedicated coach

Steve coaches my son on how to shoot with correct technique and repeat them until he gets them right in order to develop good muscle memory. Very knowledgeable coach and my son is learning basketball lingo surrounding the activity which is useful as he advances to the next level.

Steven is an excellent coach very friendly and knowledgeable about basketball. He always gets the best out of his athletes by pushing you to give it your all at all times. I would highly recommend coach Steven to anyone looking for a basketball coach with a high IQ for the game.

My 11 year old daughter just had her first session with Coach Scharf. The drills were intensive, but fun, which kept my daughter interested and motivated. Coach Scharf worked on her form by using repetitive shooting and ball handling drills so my daughter would develop “muscle memory.” We are hoping to continue the sessions.

Coach Steven is a great coach, the practice really improves me a lot.

Coach Steve gave me a tough workout. He really improved my game in one session. I can't wait to see him next week.

Coach Steve really helped my game!

Coach Steven is an awesome trainer! After just one session, my son felt like his whole game improved. Coach Steven worked on his shot with him... And the following weekend, my son scored his first 3-point shot of the season! My son felt very comfortable with Coach Steven from the start, and he likes the way he worked him hard. Coach Steven encouraged my son and made him feel good about his skills. Coach Steven knows his stuff, and my son is looking forward to his next session.

Coach Steven worked on my daughter's shooting technique and dribbling skills. My daughter is an advanced player and I could see the improvement in her shot with him helping her.

Coach Steve and my son clicked right away! He was super helpful and flexible, I booked another 2 sessions

With out any reservation do I recommend Coach Steven. He's helping my son with the basic fundamentals of the sport, all the while making it fun. He's a great teacher.

The students I bring to work with Coach Steven are both beginners, so naturally there is only so much they can do now. However Coach Steven has show himself to be a great source of confidence for the students, encouraging them to keep trying until they get the desired results, especially commending them when their form is good even if the shot doesn't go in. In the first few lessons the Coach has focused on building confidence in proper dribbling and shooting technique and the students seem to be improving. The students enjoy the Coach's easy going personality and his no rush/ low pressure instruction. The students are still getting a great workout, but enjoy going at their own pace. We're all very happy with how the lessons have been going!

Coach Steven is a fantastic coach. He knows how to coach a beginner and has a great patience. My 13 year old son enjoyed practicing and had a good time! Thank you Coach Steven for your time and support!!

Excellent Coach, look forward to working with him again

Great first session with Coach Steven S. He is energetic, motivating, and put together a great work out. On top of it all our son was all smiles! Looking forward to working with him again next week.

Coach Sharf has an amazing work ethic and he is very focused on the fundamentals of basketball. He is very patient and really works hard to make sure you understand and meet your highest potential, and he is definitely worth booking!

Coach Steven is a great coach. He's very knowledgeable, patient, thoughtful, and kind. He's very focused on the fundamentals and willing to push his student to get the most out of them. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to establish/improve their game, regardless of their skill level!

Over the last few years I have worked with and coached with Steve Scharf. In addition he was my high school coach. Steve is extremely knowledgeable about the game and comes very highly recommended. His individual workout sessions are tailored to the specific player and are always intense and rewarding. Steve takes an interest in his players and will do what is best to help them take their game to the next level. -Dakota Stabile
Coach Scharf is a very hard and dedicated worker, he gives everything he has during every session. My son went from a player who did not have the confidence to play in any sort of organized game, to having the confidence to try out for his school team
