More About Coach Willy

I coach basketball one day a week to students in second through fifth grade in Manhattan. I also work one-on-one with a few students from the school to improve their independent basketball skills.

-Played since the age of 12. -Played 4yrs of high school on 2yrs on an undefeated JV team
:2yrs for the Varsirty team as captain.
Then i went to junior college Ulster County CC and played 2 yrs there where i was named 2nd team all cuny in my last year. then i transfered and I played Division III college basketball at Lehman College in the Bronx. I was a two time second team All-CUNY player. I have multiple AAU tournament MVPs. I have also played professionally in two leagues overseas in Dominican Republic. Played and plan to play for the MGBA a professional organization on the upbringing.

A client can expect from the first work out to go through some assessment drills to see where the athlete is at. This is a starting point for the following workouts and what needs to be addressed. Drills will include: dribbling in and out of cones with the dominant and non-dominant hand, shooting a layup, catching and throwing a bounce and a chest pass, questioning general knowledge of the game. From there we will begin to set up a goal together of specific skills the athlete wants to improve on, as well as specific skills that I believe the athlete needs to improve on. Throughout each session we will create and perform drills to improve these specific skills identified, as well as continuing to incorporate skills that are already a success or mastered. We will do multiple dribbling and ball handling drills to improve hand-eye coordination and a comfort to control the basketball. We will also do multiple shooting drills to improve their shooting form. A combination of dribbling into shooting drills to improve agility and movement patterns. As well as incorporating multiple agility and conditioning drills throughout to help the athlete build endurance and reach their best physical condition.

Specific techniques to focus on:
1. Dribbling low, with your head up and the use of both hands
2. Shooting off the correct foot
3. Correct form while shooting a jump shot
4. Shooting off the dribble
5. Coming to get the ball off a pass
6. Pivot foot
7. Defensive stance, shuffle feet

Coach Will took his time with My girls. But also pushed them at the same time. He was highly recommended by a family member. This is my first time having them train with coach Willy and I’m extremely excited to have him assist in my girls basketball journey. I look forward to training again real soon.

Coach Willy was great. He made the sessions fun and my daughter looked forward to going each week.

Day one for my 14-year-old boy and Coach Willy. The pupil came home exhausted and elated. Said he's excited about the player he'll be by the start of school.

My 14 year old son has had two sessions with Coach Willy. Coach is positive, motivating and knowledgeable. He is working on overall understanding of the court as well as specific techniques. Some things they are working on are foot placement and strengthening my son's right hand (he is a lefty). We highly recommend Coach Willy and look forward to more coaching sessions.

Willy was knowledgable, patient, and responsive to my area of opportunities. I definitely recommend him.

Coach Willie helped my son in all aspects of the game. He works hard and is very efficient and arrives on time.
My son feels he is getting a lot out of the lessons.

Great great great!

My 14 yr old daughter plays JV basketball and she was very pleased with coach Willy's training session where they work on the fundamentals of the game. The training session included 60+ minutes of personal instruction working on various basketball drills. Coach Willy is definitely a "people person" and knows how to interact with young adults. My daughter is looking forward to continue working with Coach Willy to improve her basketball skills.

I have been coaching youth sports for more than 25 years and I know how tough it can be to get through to a young player. Willy has been working with my 14 year old for about 8 weeks and I have watched him connect with my son. Willy has been able to push him far beyong where I could and further than he thought he could go. I see him working harder and with more purpose, this is definitely due to the work he and Willy have done together. Willy has the rare ability to push and encourage without losing the players' interest. The increased confidence I see in my son's game is awesome and we both acknowledge Willy's part in bringing it out of him. Great coach, awesome enthusiasm for the game, but also for a knack for connecting with the players. I see him do the same with players both older and younger while he finishes the session before us. I HIGHLY recommend giving him a shot, I'm sure you will be just as happy.

My girls ( ages 9 and 12) are having a great time training with coach Willy. the girls gain a tremendous amount of basketball knowledge in each session. Coach Willy is great with kids and the girls are looking forward to a consistent weekly training with the coach.

Great coach. Was able to get into the rhythm of the game and was understanding it alot better.

Coach Willy was everything i hoped for when i booked my first session. He was patient, knowledgeable and motivating. I had little to no experience, but i felt 100% comfortable. I left the gym a better player than when i came. I sucked at dribbling 2 balls at one time, but i got it down after a couple demonstrations and focusing. If coach willy cam help me, he can MOST DEFINITELY help YOU. Im excited about my 3rd session and about improving even more.

Coach Willy is a great coach. He is very patient and knows what he's doing. He explains clearly and I definitely recommend him!

Coach Willy is a great coach, he wants you to learn and improve. He is very patient, points out what needs improving and what's good. I would recommend Coach Willy i you want to get better.

This was my son's first session with him and he is satisfied. Was teaching him the fundamentals and trying to see his strengths and weaknesses. Looking forward to him teaching my son some more.

Willy did some great work with my son. Willy was very patient all the while ensuring that my son completed the drills properly. Fabian was very excited to be working with Willy and we will definitely be booking him again.

Coach Willy is a awesome coach, he points out the right and the wrongs and encourages me to get better❗️

Coach Vargas knowledge and passion for the game of basketball and coaching has been a most valuable resource to our son. He goes above and beyond all expectations in developing Bobby's fundamentals. He is an exceptional resource that we plan to use frequently.

Thank you coach Willy for a great session. I really liked how you worked with me an didn't just tell me what to do, you showed me. You did all the drills with me and even have me drills and things to work on after our session. Thanks again!
