As a Basketball Skills Coach/Trainer, Sam has experience working with all skill levels – from beginner to professional. Whether you are looking to learn the fundamentals of basketball or raise your game to the next level, Sam takes pride in having the ability to identify what a player’s needs are, and then develop a game plan to ensure their goals as a basketball player are accomplished.
“Basketball is a beautiful game. Not only is it fun, but it has the potential to instill great human qualities into the person who chooses to pursue it. My strong belief is that it’s the responsibility of the coach/trainer to create an environment and connect with their players in a way that helps elicit these qualities – Passion, Discipline, Creativity, Leadership, Humility, Courage, Integrity, Great Communication, Optimism, Teamwork, Respect, Patience… and the list goes on. I don’t take that responsibility lightly. Every player I interact with, I want to give them the opportunity to see this game how I see it, love it how I love it.”Back to Coaches List
