Every workout begins with dynamic stretching, followed by ball handling using 1 or 2 balls. Next is a series of shooting drills that consist of form shooting correction, proper footwork, catch and shoot, and shooting off the dribble. There will be some form of conditioning involved in the workouts along with Basketball IQ which is learning how to be a student of the game and understanding what to look for.

Coach Walter is not just a great coach, but a great person. He's a very knowledgeable basketball coach who is excellent with kids. Great focus on fundamentals; perfect for our 8 year old. Tough session, but also lots of fun!
He went out of his way to accommodate our requests and work with our schedule.

Coach Walter was great. He taught my son a lot of new skills in a very effective way. My son said he felt very comfortable and felt great after his first session. Will definitely be booking more sessions.

Coach Walter was amazing!!! He gave my son really good tips and push him enough on the areas that he needs the most. I would highly recommend Coach Walter to anyone.

Coach Walter brings game skills to training sessions that are practical and realistic. He always explains the drills in detail and gives feedback in realtime. My son always ask when he can go back right after a session is over, that is the best endorsement I can provide to Walter. If looking for a trainer, Coach Walter is the guy to go to.

No matter how much you think you're in shape, once you workout with Coach Walt, you'll realize how much you're not! Excellent physical and skills-related workouts!

Coach Walter takes the time to understand the athlete's goals, identify the problem areas and then develop and execute a plan to reach those goals by fixing the problem areas. I definitely would recommend him.

I had a great first session with coach Walter. He was very patient as well as understanding and offered great advice. I definitely improved after my first session and I am excited to be working with him

I have been taking my son to Coach Walter for private lessons for about 4 months. I waited to write a review because I wanted to have a good basis for my evaluation. I highly recommend coach Walter to anyone that is looking to improve their game. He tailors the training to the specific needs of my son and makes him work hard each session. He incorporates skill training with basketball conditioning. He relates well to him and it is very flexible with his schedule. I already referred a couple of other players to him and would recommend his training to anyone else.

Great coach, showed me what I needed to improve on.

Very professional and patient coach

(no details provided)

He's a great coach and is really helping me with improving my game. He's a very straight forward guy and knows a lot about basketball.

Coach Walter identified my son's strengths and areas of weakness quickly. He formed a game plan and got my son motivated to make some drastic changes in the way he plays the game. Where I struggled a bit to get my son motivated to practice his dribbling, Walter got him practicing hard on it from day one. Now, without asking, my son will pick up two basketballs on his own and start doing the dribbling drills they worked on. Like any sport, you cannot reasonably expect your kid to become an overnight superstar. Once my son has practiced and mastered the techniques Walter worked with him on, we will undoubtedly sign up for more sessions to further his progress.

He was very focused on Kaylin the whole time. He did many different techniques throughout the whole hour. Well worth the time and money! I would recommend him to others

Coach Walter is a class act and has the skills to help your child or you get to the next level.

Coach Walter has a talent for breaking down the game and the fundamentals to the age 6 and age 7 level. In just a few short weeks we have seen an improvement in ball handling and conditioning. We would highly recommend him to work with other young people interested in the game.

I just want to Thank Coach Walter, My son enjoyed his session and has used the training he received for Nationals, As his parent just after 1 session I've noticed the difference in his game, his form, his focus on simply just being boring sometimes isn't bad after all!! We will most definitely be scheduling more session

I really enjoy working out with Coach Walter. I am a rising sophomore in junior college and it is refreshing to be coached by someone who can actually perform and excel at the drills that are being taught. I respect his background and appreciate his patience and encouragement.

Coach Walter is very patient and makes Abbi feel confident that she can do it. Abbi is enjoying her sessions

Coach Walter has done a great job coaching my son and daughter. He provides personal tips for each player that helps them identify their weaknesses and then improve using repetitive skills to engrain the correct action. I like the way he focuses on basic but essential skills and works with kids to improve upon the fundamentals that make good players better. Aside from skills training and specific technique critiques and improvements, the kids have also learned some good tips since they feel very open to ask questions on their challenges and have Coach Walter comment on how to handle various game situations. I would recommend Coach Walter for anyone looking to hone their skills and improve their game. Coach Walter is very professional, and has also been very flexible with us on scheduling the sessions.

I'm very pleased that I booked with Coach Walter P. After only one session my son was very satisfied with the conditioning and training he received. He loves the private sessions and nice facility. He is excited about working with this coach. I will definitely book more sessions.

Coach Walter is a very good Coach. Within a short period of time and only 3 sessions, he has helped my son tremendously with his confidence, skills, and knowledge of the game. My son really enjoyed the sessions and looked forward to them each and every time they met. Coach Walter has also given my son great tips on how to improve his skills and continue to practice and learn on his own. Coach Walter also has a lot of patience. He is great at what he does.

Coach Walter is excellent. He is professional, reliable and great with teenagers. My son is developing great confidence and skills. I highly recommend coach Walter as a trainer.

Perfect for my son (age 9). Encourages a "can do" attitude and draws on strengths and areas in need of improvement!

Great coach. My son learned a lot in just few sessions with him.

Coach Walter really focus on my son and gave him the one on one attention he needs. After the 1st session my son really like him and his advice. We are looking forward to more coaching session to see the process of my son. Thanks Coach Walter for a great 1st experience!

Coach Walter is an excellent coach! His attention to detail and skill in recognizing each kid’s strengths and opportunities for improvement are amazing traits. My son switched from playing football for 7 years to starting basketball as a beginner 2 years ago. I have placed him in several camps and many trainers and no one has ever given him the time he needs to really develop. My son is a natural athlete and just needed some personal attention to help develop him. Finally we have found someone that cares! I noticed that Coach Walter trains each kid differently based on their needs. Many coaches don’t take the time to assess each child. I wish we would have found coach Walt 2 years ago. My son is developing great confidence in competing with seasoned kids! I love after ever session, he says “mom I’m getting so much better”. My son is happy, he is developing, so I’m a happy mom! Thanks Coach Walter! We will continue using him and I will always recommend him to others!

Walter does a great job paying attention to detail. He ensures footwork and shooting form are corrected which is essential in learning the fundamentals for children. My son learns something new each session. I know he will develop with Walter's assistance and knowledge. Thanks!

Coach Walter was great with my son. He was patient, knowledgeable and made the lesson fun. My son asked to go back! We've already signed up for a package of lessons.

My son was all smiles, even after Coach Walter pushed him hard and wore him out for an hour! He left saying "man, I really need to work on my left" so he's determined to show improvement before our next training session. My son made me schedule his next session this morning before he went to school, so that tells you a lot.

Walt was great working with our middle schooler. He was great at keeping her challenged. He provided clear instruction and made it fun.

Coach Walter is nothing short of a fantastic coach. He conducts dynamic training sessions that are both challenging and age appropriate for my 11 year old son. My son enthusiastically looks forward to training with Walter and I firmly believe that Walters training, guidance, and encouragement will only benefit my son's basketball game. Walter knows how to balance challenging and pushing a player with making it fun and enjoyable. Walter has my highest recommendation and I hope my son is lucky enough to continue to train with him for years to come.

We were pleased with Coach Walter 's coaching style and techniques. He is very professional and pleasant.
Anyone who has an opportunity to work with him will benefit from his gift. Highly recommended.

I worked with Coach Walter a week ago and it was a very beneficial experience. If you are looking to fine tune your game then he is the person to work with. He pays a lot of attention to footwork and other small details that make differences in a game. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him.

Coach Walter was great! Prior to our session he explained what the training would consists of and was very detailed. They were fully engaged the entire time and after just one session my children were more motivated and it is showing on the court. My children really like him and said he was really good and can't wait until their next session. I would recommend Coach Walter to anyone.

I've known coach Walter for many years and he knows a lot about the game of basketball. The workout was intense with great focus and drills on both the inside and outside parts of the game. Although he works you really hard, he also makes the session enjoyable and fun. I highly recommend coach Walter as a trainer.

Coach Walter has been great for my son. He watches him inside and out game. He teaches playing without the ball well. You get your hour's worth each session. My son is drained after it is over. He works you. And that is a compliment. My son has improved in wonky a few sessions. I would recommend Walter to any kid looking to improve.

Coach Walter was an excellent coach. His training was challenging but was also enjoyable. I would definitely recommend him to others. His training techniques are very good.. I feel I have already improved and I also know what I need to work on and how to do it thanks to him. His attitude was very good he is encouraging but strict at the same time.

Coach Walt worked me extremely hard, we did tons of fundamental drills but all with conditioning factors involved, and after only two times working out I feel two times as conditioned and two times a player.

Coach Walt has been working with me for over a year and I highly recommend him. He personally tailors each workout to your needs and you can see the improvements. Coach Walt has a lot of basketball experience and it shows.
