Introduction: Students who take lessons with me seem to progress quickly. I do not spend any time on unnecessary drills, but use the practice time to teach basketball fundamentals that will help the student progress immediately. As a result, the student finds a even greater joy in playing basketball. What I enjoy most about my work is showing students that they're already better than they think. They just need someone, like myself, to bring out those hidden qualities and gifts they naturally have. Along with teaching them new ones.

My 11 year old son just had his first lesson with Don and truly enjoyed it. He has taken lessons before and my son son said he was much better than my last coach. Don was patient and very honest with his feedback. He was clear on what he will work on to improve my son's game.

Coach Don is an excellent basketball teacher. He is experienced, patient, and knows how to work with all ages and skill levels. He emphasizes on fundamentals of the basketball and aims at maximizing one's potential. I recommend Coach Don highly to anyone who is serous about taking his/her basketball ability to the next level.

Don is a very good coach. He offered a free lesson to teach my daughter and my son at my house. And he is professional and responsible. I have decided to hire him. Thanks for his effort.

My nephew was in need of a trainer to help him improve on his fundamentals. Coach Don has put him through great fundamental drills and is showing improvement. My nephew loves working with him and has provided me with good feedback. Great coach!
