“If you’re coaching its for 1 of 3 reasons usually. Either you have kids on the team, you’re a volunteer, or you love the sport. I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t want to be. We’re here to train young girls and boys to reach an elite level of basketball skill and IQ. Our program will not only improve their game but also improve their everyday lives outside of the gym. We train good habits that transfer over to everyday life, that’s why I coach”.
