Having high standards for yourself and others because as a coach and a Basketball club owner my biggest challenge is to create a positive culture and a hard-working environment where everyone is striving for improvement. I love working with youth players and watch them develop as personalities and basketball players. I love to teach very aggressive defense on the ball and I use full court press with switches, run n jump, trapping or combination of the above. I use mostly motion offense and I teach position-less basketball and an all around approach of the game regardless of age and height to maximize development and the learning process. I love high tempo and trying to get maximum effort from my athletes to enhance development while at the same time it gives me the opportunity to use all my players because my first and only concern is the kids safety and to enjoy and love the game.
