(Coach Chris)

Hey there basketball players, bball enthusiasts, and parents- - My name is Christopher, (there are some pictures of me are below)... I am 34 years young and I just moved to Phoenix (from Boston) to continue my passion for playing and teaching and sharing basketball knowledge to kids and anyone else who wants to be trained.   

I offer Coaching and "Mannying" and Mentorship in Basketball to any person of any age but my favorite age group to work with is 8 - 13.  FAQ: I work with either Girls or Boys.  I work best with kids in this age bracket because it reminds me of when I first became passionate about basketball and starting playing basketball (and touch football) with my school mates...I have very fond memories of my life from then.  I can play basketball with your kids after school and pick them up and drop them off--I am open to catering to your afternoon care needs etc.

Through the pandemic I have discovered that teaching and playing basketball on some level reflects my truest self. 

I look forward to working with you and/or your kids to teach them basketball drills, body awareness, and the importance of healthy habits and discipline.  These are my core values for this website and this training..   

FAQ: I am forever inspired by Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash, if you could fuse them together they would be my favorite basketball players.

FAQ: I live in North Phoenix.


Basketball Tutoring Sessions are held at Buffalo Ridge Park Primarily because this is the closest and best park to where I live in North Phoenix.  Otherwise I can travel to you by car to Cactus Park, Chaparral or a similar venue depending on where you live in #TheValley!
