More About Coach Steve

I have coached college basketball since 1992. Graduate Assistant at Arizona State University. I then moved on as an assistant coach at the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith and Scottsdale Community College. I have been a head college coach since 2005 at the University of Great Falls and Chandler Gilbert Community College. I have been the camp director for the Phoenix Suns youth basketball camps since 2003.

I was a 3 year high school varsity starter. I was an all conference player my senior year. I played 1 year at a division 3 school the State University at Cortland.

First I would meet with parents and the athlete about their strengths and weakness. Depending on age and skills develop a fundamental way (plan) to improve the player. Main areas would be ball handling and shooting. For a beginner would use:
Ball handling : Warm up hands (pound ball), Circles, Basic 8’s, Form Dribble: Pound, Push pull, Cross over, Stop and Go, Zigzag, reverse/spin, between legs, behind back, Back-up dribble, Cones : Emphasis placed on eyes up and being able to do these with both hands. Use both half court and full court. 30 minutes
Beginner shooting - form shooting - developing muscle memory - footwork. hand placement on the ball, bend knees, follow through, good rotation of the ball - very important to know your range
Layups - right hand off left foot, left hand off right foot, reverse lay ups, Mikan drill
Catch and shoot jumpers with correct form and know your range
Jumpers off the dribble , one and two dribble. 30 minutes

For more advance players; many of the same ball handling drills but add in two ball dribbling, how to create space from your defender off the dribble, how to use a pick and roll - reading the defense, attacking the big guy

1 on 1 moves : jab and go, rocker step, step back jumper, hesitation moves

Shooting: 1 and 2 dibble pull up series, how to use a screen moving with out the ball - curl cut flare cut, Ginobli move
Always concentrating on correct fundamentals with hands and foot work and going game speed

Client Reviews

Very professional and nice coach. My son learned a lot from the private lessons.

Coach Steve was great with my son. It was nice to have someone tell my son exactly what he needs to do to get better and be able to play at the next level. My son is looking forward to more workouts with Coach Steve.

Coach Steve is very friendly & encouraging. With his many years of experience he was able to break down each drill so that my daughter could repeat them to the best of her ability.

My sons game has improved dramatically in a short period of time working with coach Silsby..

Great coach says the truth and is very patient but does not tolerate when you don't do it at your full potential he's very great

My son had his first session with Coach Steve this weekend and I was thoroughly impressed. Not only was Coach Steve encouraging, but he was completely engaged from start to finish. The progression of drills were appropriate for my son's skill level and time was taken to break everything down before starting each new drill. It is apparent Coach Steve's passion for the game reflects onto the players he coaches. I am looking forward to watch the development of my son with future sessions.
