  • 20 years of coaching basketball, grades 4th - 12th
  • Stong focus on intensive fundamentals skill work
  • Head girls workout coach for Ridgefield Rec Dept.
"As a workout coach, I emphasize fundamentals. Today's kids want to step on a court and envision themselves being the next Steph Curry or Lebron James. They fail to realize that there were thousands of hours put into their craft without anyone seeing it. 
I see coaches or programs charging high fees to keep players engaged in wknd games without any attention put into skill work. My intent as a coach is to build a foundation using functional drills and interactive play to bring out the best in each player.”
