I am a professional basketball player with experience playing in such countries as France, Portugal, England, Canada, and China. I am a certified sports coach and obtained my PGC (masters level) in sports coaching in England from Worcester University. I am a former NCAA division 1 Scholarship Athlete. I attended Brewster Academy Prep School, which is the #1 basketball school in America. I won a National Championship there in 2010 and was inducted into the school Hall of Fame in 2019. I have been a basketball coach for ages 4-18 for boys and girls from all around the world throughout the past 10+ years. I have a true passion to give back to the youth and help the next generation achieve their goals. My philosophy has always been focused on the fundamentals. A win for me is seeing the students progression from where they began. Each student is unique in their own way and it is my job to identify their special gift and help bring it out of them. A quote I live by is "You have to do something you've never done, to get somewhere you never gone" I look forward to sharing my experiences and knowledge with you in the classroom. This class will give you the tools and knowledge to help bring your game to the next level.
Homework OfferedThere is no mandatory homework for this course. Students can practice what they learned in class on their own if/when they have free time.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedStudents’ progress can be tracked by if they want to record and write down how many times, they were able to dribble a basketball in 1 minute for example. This is not mandatory for the student but it does give them the option to self-reflect at the end of the course on how they progressed through each drill. I will also provide verbal feedback every class. I will also be open to answer any questions regarding the lesson or any questions regarding sports upon enrolment of the class.
