More About Coach Tommy

I have worked one on one with players ages 6-70 years old. I have coached volleyball and basketball teams at the high school level. I am currently a personal trainer with 10+ years experience and more than 15,000 individual sessions. Some highlights in my career as a coach thus far is has been getting players to walk onto the college team as well as getting one player ready to play overseas in the Philippines. I have been lucky to work with NBA players, men and women's college, as well youth. Currently running individual and group skill sessions as well as coaching with Arcadia HS.I am CPR certified and have numerous certifications, including PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT SPECIALIST and CORRECTIVE EXERCISE SPECIALIST through National Academy of Sports Medicine. In addition, I have a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology which helps with motivating and challenging athletes as well as the mental aspect of the game. I was born to coach.

I was the captain on my HS Volleyball and Basketball Team. Unfortunately, I did not play at the college level, (graduated from UCLA) although a lot of players have asked me if where I played college ball. I currently still play a lot of pick up ball as well as organized adult leagues where our team has won several championships.

Sessions will always be geared around the athletes' goals. In the beginning a basketball history will be gathered, some assessments of basic fundamentals like shooting, dribbling, passing, and defense. Some physical assessments will be made: sprints, one leg vertical, two leg vertical, and lateral quickness. From then, the focus can be one-on-one, ball handling, shooting, post, defense, playmaking, becoming more athletic...it all depends on the clients goals. My only goal is get the player better. Together we can get further than you've even imagined.

Client Reviews

Coach Tommy did not waste any time in the evaluation of my son. Coach was very detailed in identifying and correcting the shooting and ball handling techniques which were giving my son the most problems, but was unable to correct on his own. These subtle but positive adjustments made instant improvements in his shooting mechanics and resulted in higher shots made. The ball handling session was solid as well, coach Tommy identified areas of improvement and outlined in detail numerous dribbling techniques which to incorporate into his game and style of play. Very good first session, my son and I look forward to working with coach Tommy in the future.

My daughter was completely brand new to basketball. I put her in tennis and basketball lessons. After a few lessons with coach my daughter is beginning to enjoy basketball a lot more than tennis. She is improving very fast. Coach is very good.
Tommy works with my 3 children. They are all different skill levels with all different personalities and he is able to work with them seamlessly. He coaches all of them differently and all my kids are improving. Tommy is really great at what he does.
I'm really impressed by Coach Tommy. I've hired other coaches and trainers before but Coach Tommy stood out. Coach Tommy was able to evaluate my son skills so quickly. He assessed his athletic ability, ball handing, and shooting pretty quickly. From there he gave my son all types of drills to fit his level. The drills were challenging but not impossible. Tommy sees everything and is extremely detail oriented. After just a few sessions my sons shot improved dramatically after working on the things Coach Tommy told us to do. He's really great!
Our son has special needs and Coach Tommy is very supportive and very patient with him. He takes time to explain things multiple times and in multiple ways to our son. His training is direct and to the point. He is also very comprehensive and thorough. We've been working with Coach Tommy for awhile now and we can see the huge improvements with our son. Thank you Coach Tommy!
Tommy is an awesome trainer! He has taught me so many in-game moves and counters to certain situations that will happen during a game; ranging from the fundamentals to the more complicated ones. The vast amount of knowledge he possesses about basketball can benefit you greatly!
Tommy knows soooo much! He was really patient with me and drastically helped me improve my jumper. He watched me shoot for a little while and then began to rebuild my jumper from scratch. He literally changed everything. My feet were wrong, hands, hips, elbow, ball placement, alignment, release, follow thru, and balance were all worked on. He gave me tons of homework or drills to work on when I wasn't training with him. I can't believe he was able to improve my shot so quickly. He's a freakin' genius!
Immediately after training with Coach Tommy, my son had his best game. He scored more points than he ever has and was much more confident in the open floor. I got complimented by other parents on how his euro step move.
