Introduction: Our goal as an organization is to improve the mental and physical fortitude of each player that we work with. We believe that understanding the game of basketball and playing the game of basketball are equally important. As a team, we strive to separate ourselves from any other basketball training service in the Bay Area. We cater our trainings to the goals and ambitions our clients provide. After our initial consultation with a client, we draft a curriculum, establish a timeline to reach their desired goals, and discuss a strategy that fits with their schedule. As a trainer, I have over 25 years of experience playing the game of basketball. In January of 2015, I transitioned into coaching and training. I started my career coaching formally for the Club One Kings. The Kings were a 10U AAU team based in Concord. In 2017, I began working with Hoopsphere, a prominent basketball clinic, based in Fremont. As a Hoopsphere Coach, I’ve spent years cultivating players individually and coaching teams as a collective unit. The knowledge that I’ve gained from playing and coaching the game will now be available for athletes as young as 7 years old up to 25 years of age. My goal is to train, coach, and empower individuals in the Bay Area. Our company is focused on working together to help reach individual victories everyday. During the pandemic, I am offering virtual workouts for $25 per hour per athlete. I have developed a curriculum and technique that will allow me to interact with each client to maximize their training session online.

Here is what my kid says : "When I started with Coach Tahir, I was a shell of my former self because of the coronavirus lockdown. I had done little to no exercise for the last 10 months. Coach Tahir understood this so he started me off slowly and gradually increased the amount of pressure he would put on my body. He doesn't lie to me and say that I will be in peak condition in no time. He just says that with a little bit of hard work, I'll get there" Coach Tahir is a great coach. He had an outstanding impact on my kids basketball development.He always tries to customize the session based on the kids' state of mind. He tries to understand the skill and understanding of the game and then creates individualized workouts that help him build confidence while maintaining his interest and focus. I always appreciate Coach Tahir’s approach to coaching and are looking forward to kids' development as he continues to work with Coach Tahir.

Coach Tahir has had an outstanding impact on my 9 year older son’s basketball development. Coach Tahir took time to fully understand my son’s skill level and understanding of the game and then crafted individualized workouts that helped him build confidence while maintaining his interest and focus. Coach Tahir fosters a environment based on positive reinforcement while allowing children to learn and grow from their struggles. My son and I have really appreciated Coach Tahir’s approach to coaching and are excited for my son’s development as he continues to work with Coach Tahir.

We have been amazed at the progress our 12 year old son has made with Coach T . Our son has been lacking quickness and athleticism, and Coach T has worked with him on his footwork, balance and explosion, and he is a different player after a month! His basketball fundamentals have also greatly improved. We are extremely happy with the results and with Coach’s approach. On top of all that, Tahir is just a really nice guy that goes above and beyond to make coaching sessions convenient for a busy family that has a ton going on... and his communication is spot on! We are delighted...

Pushes you just enough to help you get past your own individual limits. Good communication through text is also a plus. Thanks Coach T! 🏀

Tahir works well with my son and has increased his understanding of the game. He is patient and motivates him to perform without raising his voice.
