More About Coach Tarnell

I have 6 years of college men's basketball coaching experience. I have been running the men's strength and conditioning program for the Elgin community college men's basketball program for the past 4 seasons. This will be the 5th year I will be running that program.

Athletically once I made it to the juco level. I decided I wanted to go into the coaching field.... I just wanted to be in an athletic setting for the rest of my working years as opposed to going into another field as many do once they complete college.

A session with me is very demanding but at the same time each athlete is specific. Every athlete has different needs in areas that must be addressed.... so each athlete is evaluated accordingly....

My son had his first session with Coach Tarnell & he is very happy. We have booked more sessions with Coach Tarnell.

Coach Tarnell is great. He is able to see the small mistakes my son is making with his skills and correct them so we see results right away. He uses humor and a very calm delivery to get his message across that makes my son very comfortable

Coach Tarnell was great!y kids loved him. I.saw improvement by the end of the first session and so did my boys. He seems to have a knack with boys and is very encouraging! Looking forward to our next session.!

After a difficult situation at the high school, I was seeking some basketball training for my son. Coach Tarnell was the answer to our prayers. My son is back excited about basketball and willing to but the work in again. Coach Tarnell made him feel good about himself again. His drills showed my son that he needed to work but also that he is a good player.

I booked a session for my 12 year old son to help him get ready for his school tryouts. He really enjoyed it and learned a lot. He said Coach Tarnell knows a lot of drills, is very experienced, and was positive and fun. My husband, who's an avid basketball player, watched the coaching session and was also impressed. We're signing up for more sessions with Coach Tarnell!

It took us a few tries to lock in a start time and location, but once we did Tarnell worked the boys exactly how we asked. Good communicator. Knows how to connect with the kids (13 year old). Stayed a little extra time to make sure they understood the expectations and made some progress on the first session.

Coach Tarnell is teaching skills that I are challenging my daughter and making her think. He has a way to keep her engaged which I know is challenge for any 9 year old going through training. Look forward to continuing coaching with him.
