More About Coach Toni

I have trained athletes in both private and group lessons while attending college at Stanford and continued training athletes when moving to Boston for law school. In California, I ran after school sports programming for elementary school girls at a nonprofit (Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative). I am a 4 year Stanford basketball counselor for both boys and girls from elementary school to high school. I worked basketball clinics and gave private lessons for kids of all ages. I have trained athletes in both basketball and soccer since 7th grade in Illinois as well.

I played basketball at Stanford for 3 years before being forced to medically retire and take on a sideline coaching role. At Stanford, I was a 2 year starter and went to 3 NCAA Final Fours. I earned First Team All-PAC 12 Team Honors, Defensive Team Honorable Mention, and PAC-10 All Freshman Team Honorable Mention.

I use my own experiences as an elite athlete to structure workouts, focusing on the fundamentals. I will begin with a form of ball handling either stationary or moving that we will build on each week to improve. We will break down shooting form, working on correct footwork, and advance these into shooting drills. We will start stationary shooting and advance to shooting off of the dribble. We will break down passing, and then advance into passing drills I did every day in college. Further sessions will be structured based on the needs of the client, his/ her strengths and weaknesses. I believe the fundamentals are key regardless of position and will set an athlete apart as they progress. I like to be very involved to make drills more exciting, such as playing defense during ball handling.

Toni was great. Awesome focus on skills & drills.

Very detail and communicated very well with my daughter, excellent choice if you want your son or daughter to excel

If you’re looking for the full package Basketball I.Q., basic to college level skill set, genuinely connects and stays involved throughput the entire practice session and conveys positive direction through subtle encouragement look no further than Toni! Just an outstanding role model my 13 year old daughter is thrilled and excited to be under her tutelage. An accomplishment coach and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a quality experience.

Toni has been great with my daughter and her friend. She is enthusiastic and energetic and the girls really enjoy working with Toni!

My daughter enjoyed working with Toni. From my first experience, I could tell she was easy to work with, great with kids, and clearly has a lot of basketball experience. I saw her coaching in a positive manner and taught my daughter new skills after just her first session. Looking forward to working with her again!

Coach Toni is the best. The only coach we’ve ever had to teach shooting technique, not just shooting drills.
Check out NCAA final four game. (Coach Toni starting guard )

Coach Toni is awesome! She connected with my daughter very quickly and made her feel comfortable. She is patient and kind and we're really looking forward to more sessions with her!

My 12-year-old daughter loved her first lesson with Toni, and is excited to have more lessons with her. Because my daughter hasn't played much basketball she is behind the curve of where many of her peers are. In just one hour, Toni taught my daughter new skills to help with ball control, explained everything thoroughly, gave clear and helpful feedback, and was always encouraging. My daughter looks forward to her next lesson, and we both highly recommend Toni!

Amazing session with Coach Toni. I learned a lot in such a small amount of time and can already tell I am improving on fundamentals and confidence after coming back from an ACL reconstruction. Coach Toni had a lot of patience and motivated me to continue to push myself with ball handling and much more. I can tell I will improve a lot and learn new techniques with a couple more session. Thank so much !

Toni has been great. Our daughter has improved in skill and confidence. She worked with her fixing some basic technical areas and her dribbling is showing improvement only after a couple lessons. My daughter is relatively new to playing organized bball, but loves the game. Toni tailors the lessons around her skills and my daughter enjoys how she keeps it fun at the same time she is learning. I'd definitely recommend Toni. It's amazing to be able to have someone with her experience/resume work with our daughter, so that she can develop as a player and be more confident in her ability.

Toni is great! She was very flexible in setting up the appointment. She's very knowledgeable, and she connected very well with my 10 year old daughter. I would highly recommend her.

My daughter loved working with Toni and can't wait for her next lesson.

Coach Toni is a natural! Her work with my daughter Liz has helped her so much after just one session.!

Coach Toni was a great coach. My daughter was already improving after one session.

Toni did a great job with my 11 yr old, I highly recommend her to anyone looking to give their child an edge. My daughter left her session excited for future trainings.

Coach Toni has been great!! Exceptional attention to detail she's a great demeanor to her that my daughter listens well our season has just started and I already seen better ball handling and shooting form but most importantly a great since of confidence on the court that was not there before !
