About Us

As a youth growing up in Capitol Heights, MD, my first love was football.  But at the age of 13, my passion for basketball took over and I’ve been in love with the game ever since.  I played basketball in both high school basketball and college and learned much from my coaches and mentors.  From those great men and women, I’ve developed a true appreciation of the game and my passion is now passing on my knowledge to young people today.

I got into basketball training because I saw a lack of development and respect for the game from young people.  Many kids had taken to liking the And1 and Harlem Globetrotters style of play.  While entertaining, it’s not fundamentally sound basketball.  I saw kids get more excited about a failed move made, than scoring the basketball.  I wanted to give what I learned back to the kids, and at the same time help them to appreciate and love the game as much as I do.

Our Training

Moving the Ball

When moving the ball up or down the court it is important to keep your feet moving and maintain  your balance while focused on what is a head of you.

Ball Handling

Ball handling is an important part of learning the game. Moving the ball can get you out of the touch jams on the court.

Maneuvering the Ball

Great ball handling means practicing maneuvering the ball around obstacles on the court. You must maintain control of the ball when it is targeted by the defense.
