More About Coach Steve

After returning from Europe, I lead basketball camps/leagues in the Eastbay, CA area for over 20 years. I partnered with Quick Handle Basketball to bring their program to the USA. I lead basketball clinics in Europe from 1980-1995 with Coach Jim Skagen of Multnomah Bible College. While playing professionally in France, I attended university there and earned a Brevet d'Etat Educator Sportif (coaching degree), enabling me to also work for the local department of education, in Evreux, France. I was able to share my love of the game by teaching basketball to all elementary students.

I was awarded a full basketball scholarship to a D1 school, the University of Portland. I later transferred to Azuza Pacific University, to complete my pastoral ministry degree.

I played ten years in the European professional basketball league.

I individualize each player's coaching session(s), based upon their age, personal goals, strengths and areas of improvement. I specialize in shooting and ball handling, but am knowledgeable of any and all basketball fundamentals a player may need assistance with.

I also focus on a player's mental strength. To be successful a player must learn to master their positive "inner voice" that carriers us through fatigue, tough opponents, and enables us to be a valued team player.

Each session will begin with an assessment of skills worked on during the last session. Each session will end with a "homework" assignment.

Coach Steve was great with my son. Scheduling was easy and he worked him hard the whole time. My son has been practicing his tips and drills and we look forward to future sessions with coach Steve.

One session in and already notice a more confident player in my son. Steve teaches fundamentals very well relating mistakes back to a breakdown in a fundamental skill, so the athlete learns where to focus during drills. He has a great attitude too and seems really enjoy it.

Coach Steve was awesome with my son on his first lesson! Saw huge improvement and can't wait for our next one.

Coach Steve was great. On the "business side" he was great at scheduling and communicating and was early to each session. On the "hoop side," he was very knowledgeable on the fundamentals of the game and had a great coaching manner, a good mix of "push it hard" and encouragement. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.

Steve has been fantastic with my son. Very knowledgeable of the game and knows how to push my son with the appropriate degree of care and encouragement. We will be signing up for more lessons. Great job.
