Darek H.

San Francisco, CA

I have been coaching for four years. I am 22 years old and am planning to go play basketball professionally overseas this fall of 2015. I have taught kids of all ages from 5 to 20 years of age. I am very involved when I teach, and everything I teach I have either done or am currently doing. Base on your skill level I will create a workout for your individual success to make sure that you are getting better on and off the court

My son really listened to Darek. With just one lesson he already has more control of the ball. I really appreciated him giving my son a small notebook/journal to write in anything about basketball and also how he wrote down what he wanted my son to work on until next session!!!

Darek really listens, and he understands. So far, he's doing what I request and not just his own program, and he really seems to be able to relate to the younger kids. He's a fantastic teacher and a fantastic person!

Dean H.

Encinitas, CA

My dad was the one of the best High School and College basketball players in Canada. I grew up playing with him and learning techniques from the best players in the world today. I have been on a mens league team for many years and have won the title in the City of Encinitas. I am 6'1" but did a vertical jumping program and taught myself how to grab the rim at first and then dunk. I have the fundamentals of a good shot and great ball handling abilities. I can play pickup at any park and have a great game.

Dean is awesome. We hired him to teach our 7 year old daughter and he includes my husband and I in the lesson too. It's really great that it's a family event. It's pretty amazing how he can work with us all at different skill levels. Plus he makes it fun. It's not just drills, but he has a ton of games that we play to reinforce those skills without making it feel like work. He focuses on our daughter and gives her great exercise in the process as well. He goes easy on us parents and doesn't make us run as much, which we appreciate! :-)

As a former D1 football player, I participated in both 5A Varsity basketball as well as multiple traveling teams that took me across Texas. I have coached youth basketball as well as high-school athletes. I can help reinforce fundamental and strengthen overall athletic ability with particular training. I will also challenge you one on one to elevate your game and critique your skills as a mentor and opponent.

I've been playing and teaching basketball for over 13 years and can help you reach your goals whether you want to take it seriously or as a hobby.

When taking lessons from me you will learn the fundamentals of how to play basketball, as well as skills that help you become an all around basketball athlete such as dribbling, shooting, passing, defense and fitness.

We may not be the next Stephen Curry, but, we can all learn to appreciate the sport of basketball by learning the fundamentals. Knowing which way to run, screen, pass, shoot, and rebound makes basketball a physical as well as mental exercise!

Austin taught me all about weight lifting. He helped me to achieve great form that would prevent any future injuries while also seeing much progress!

My 15 year old daughter took her first lesson with Austin. She was thrilled. She talked about it all morning and I will keep you posted on Austin's expertise. Right now, the best in town! Actually, South Bay!
