Lifelong relationships

I have a saying: “Once you’re in, you’re always in! We’re brothers or sisters for life!”

This is emblematic of the relationship I form with every player I coach! My relationships with players go far beyond basketball. It’s really about life! Whatever a player needs, if I can provide, s/he got it!

If they need a reference, I’ll provide. If they need a recommendation, I’ll write it. If they need a job, they can count on me. My job is to go above and beyond the call of duty.

This is what your kid gets as part of the Youth Hoops experience. They come in expecting to “only” learn basketball. They come out with a lifelong relationship with a coach, who will always look out for them!

Secret … this is the real reason I quit a high, 6-figure paying job to run Youth Hoops full time!

​I don’t coach basketball to show kids how to put the ball through the hoop. I coach basketball to create meaningful relationships with players that will last a lifetime.
