Looking for sessions in Backyards/ Driveways during this summer of No Camps. Would prefer to set up a regular Schedule that would replace the regiment of camp (something like 75 minutes per day, 3 days per week is a start; won't commit to less than this). Looking for a few players who really want to use this time to improve immensely. No matter your current level if you are committed to improvement, I will work with you.
Have designed Curriculum primarily for Ages 8-16 that we will work from according to your age and ability level. Our Sessions focus on the repetition of hard skills, striving for perfection with each fundamental skill we practice.

Extremely knowledgeable and skilled coach on the game of basketball. Coach Zach has the ability to notice, pick out and help improve mistakes you don’t even realize as a player you are making. I recommend to sign up while space is available well worth the money!

Coach Zach is one of a kind when it comes to being both a Coach and Mentor. Our player felt comfortable throughout and couldn’t wait to get back out on the court with him. If you’re looking for someone who will make sure your kid gets the right fundamentals built into his game, Coach Zach is the guy you want by your kid’s side!

Great coach , very patient with my son.

Coach Zach has been working with my 12 year old son who was recovering from a broken leg. He has been patient but relentlessly pushing him forward towards improvement in all critical areas of his game. We thought this was going to be about recovering his play, but Coach Zach has been taking him SO much farther than that! We are so happy we found him and that he has been able to work with our son!!!

Coach Zach showed amazing attention to detail along with analyzing weaknesses and strengths that could to be worked on. I recommend this coach to the community and will be working with him again.

Coach Zach was amazing! he inspired my kids, got them working as a team, and also encouraged my little girl who sometimes feels, as the little one, that she might as well not try. She definitely tried, thanks to Zach. Can't recommend him enough!

My son had his first session with Coach Zach and he was thrilled. He learned a great deal and is completely motivated to continue! We look forward to a great relationship and continued athletic growth with Coach Zach!

Great session with Zach. My son enjoyed it and had a chance to work on his fundamentals and be challenged at the same time. Good stuff!

Coach Zack relates really well to my son and is an excellent coach.

Call Zack is a very professional trainer I love the way he gravitated to my son and his level of teaching and finding out weakness was great so glad I chose him would definitely use him again in the future

Real good session, knows his basketball, grateful to work with him.

So far ive recieved really great training and feedback, i feel like next time i see him ill definitely be an improved player to a significant extent in terms of fundamentals.

Zach is a fantastic coach. He helped my son improve on a lot of skills especially shooting technique. I highly recommend Zach to anyone who is looking for a great coach. He also communicated very well with my son and we will definitely book more sessions with Zach the next time we visit NY.

Coach zach is a very good coach who focuses of fundamentals, discipline and hard work. Definitely recommend him

After an initial session with Zach, coming as pretty much a total beginner, it's clear Zach knows a lot about the game and how to teach it. Good guy, very patient, just the right amount of information without overwhelming me. I'll be booking more sessions with Zach, would recommend!

Coach Zach did a great job with my nine year old in the 3 sessions we booked. I would highly recommend him. He had a soft touch communicating and was really great interacting and effectively getting his points across. Loved the drills that he taught too.

Coach Zach is one of the best that I have worked with. He has superior knowledge and experience in the game of basketball, which is useful for anyone trying to make it to the next level like I am. I would recommend him to anyboy.

We started working with Zach 3 years ago. He is an excellent coach with experience in competitive basketball as well as an innate ability to teach others. My 13 year old son really puts in his best effort with Zach and the coaching is worth every penny. I highly recommend him.

Coach Zach was great to work with in our custom workout - it was a ton of fun and we learned a lot on how to improve our game.

Amazing. Zach knows his stuff. Very passionate and knowledgeable. He tweaked my sons shot and is now lights out. Kids will love to train with him

Coach Zach was excellent with my son. He covered a lot in the two sessions so far focusing on teaching and then observing my son demonstrating his grasping the fundamentals in shooting, lay-up and ball handling. He made signicant progress in a shot time.

Hooked up with Zach to train my 14 year old how to be a good ball handler. It's was easy to tell that Zach was an experienced basketball coach. He explains concepts verbally very clearly and actually has the skill set to demonstrate drills. I will add more feedback after more sessions

Great coach, extremely focused through the whole workout.

My Son took a lesson with coach Zack and came back very excited. Really felt he got a great workout and lots of tips on improvements

Coach Zach was great according to my 13 yr old son Ben. He said he learned a lot in 1 session. Zach was on time, professional and according to my son very knowledgable. We will definitely book more sessions.

Coach Zach is awesome ! I can already feel the improvement and my game has changed so much after one session with him

Coach Zack has worked tirelessly to get me to the next level. His expertise is like none other i have ever trained with.

The first session with Zach was very productive. He quickly addressed some flaws in my game and began working on them. He was very supportive and encouraging.

trajan is loving it!

Zach gives a great workout and covers all of the important fundamentals. With just two sessions, I've already seen a marked improvement in my game.

Great coach I have improved my game.

Very good coach explains in every detail you are lacking a few sessions would give you a lot of improvements.

Great coach with drills that always leave me tired and also very nice to talk too. Definitely booking more sessions with coach

Coach Zach has helped my basketball game a lot in the 2 sessions that we've had so far. He picked me apart and knew exactly what skills needed to be developed and improved. I didn't know I could see results so fast. After my 10 sessions with coach Zach I will be booking another 10. I'm very confident that coach Zach will push me until I reach my goal which is to play overseas.

Coach Zach Kuba did great work as our Video Coordinator during my final season coaching at the University of the Pacific. Zach was an instrumental piece to a group that won a Big West Title and earned a birth in the NCAA Tournament.
Zach has done a tremendous job leading and running our camps over the past 6 seasons.
