When my son started soccer at age five, he really struggled and didn't enjoy the game the way I'd hoped. Within a few months of working with Jack (John) though, hes become one of the better players on the team and even made the local travel team. Best of all, though, he really seems to enjoy playing now and seems confident out on the field!

John truly understands the game and was able to teach all the basic skills to my son. Unfortunately, due to a recent move I was unable to continue with the lessons. I think he is a very good teacher though.

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.

First off, I will not be able to teach you how to dunk. Otherwise, if you're looking for drills, skills, and becoming a better ball handler, then I am the guy for you.

I've been playing Point Guard since I was 6 years old, so that makes 14 years of experience under my belt.

Mr. Cash taught me how to play the great sport of basketball! He made my shot clean and smooth using B.E.E.F. He also helped condition me for basketball so I could have a solid defense. Lots of patience and a great attitude!!

Cash is a great teacher! Not only does he understand what he is teaching, but he understands how to connect with people in order to help teach it to their needs and make it enjoyable. He has true passion for what he does, which makes it fun to work with him! You would all truly benefit from a teacher like him!

Most teachers aren't the most pleasant people to be around. Drew, on the other hand, was a teacher I always looked forward to learning from. All around, a super nice and knowledgable guy.

Drew is knowledgeable and personable. You know you are getting good information from him and that he knows his stuff. But at the same time, you also can relate to him and this creates a better atmosphere for good communication and learning.
