MEET OUR COACHES
As my playing career came an abrupt end, I was able to reinvigorate my passion in basketball by helping others. Over the past 10 years I have been blessed to train some of the most talented players to ever come out of Canada. I’ve had the opportunity to share my knowledge of the game and train many high level players from NBA athletes, professionals overseas, elite high school players, and young athletes all across the GTA. With over 30 years of experience as a player, trainer and coach, I have always approached each situation with detail, dedication, and discipline. It is our mission here at YASO for our athletes to improve in every skill set basketball has to offer, and understand the team concepts that are involved. There are many concepts in basketball that translate into real life, and here at YASO we want all our athletes to excel at both life and basketball.
Sports has been the focal point of my life since I was a kid. I became obsessed with basketball ever since grade 4 where I made the grade 8 basketball team. While being around basketball all my life, I have learned that with dedication comes hard work and with hard work comes reward. I was able to help coach at Robert Bateman high school where i knew immediately I had a love for coaching. I want to help our kids understand the fundamentals of basketball and instill a great work ethic at a young age. As a coach at YASO academy I hope to have a positive impact on your child’s life in the basketball community.
