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.

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 Steven is an excellent coach. He is doing a great job with my 15 year old son. He is patient and experienced.
I would recommend him.

Coach Steven is an excellent coach and trainer. He really takes his time with you to improve your skills. He really helped me to improve my shots and ball handling. I would recommend Coach Steven to any player that takes the game seriously and plans to play on a collegiate level.

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 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
