Improve your stamina, consistency, hand-eye coordination. Become both quick and fast. Become an explosive jumper.
I came to Coach Richard a very raw and unrefined player who lacked the skills and confidence to really stand out in college ball. Nevertheless, Richard was able to find the strong points in my game and teach me how to capitalize on my natural gifts; such as my 6'5 wing span and strong frame at 5'11. He was able to miraculously turn my short list of go-to moves, into a dangerous repertoire of fade-aways, crossovers, spins and more! Being the large framed person I am, I always had very sloppy and clumsy footwork, but Richard taught me to be an agile, quick and technically sound player. Not only does Richard coach the body, but he imparts key principles to teach the mind. "It's all up here!" He'd say daily, while pointing to his head. Coach Richard embraces all skill levels to bring out the best player each person can be. Thanks to him, I look forward to my career both on and off the court.

"Richard took the time to help me turn my weaknesses into strengths and I feel my game has improved since working with him this past summer. He knows the game inside and out and offers positive criticism and feedback. Most importantly he believes in the people that he trains, so that they can begin to believe in themselves."
Richards training has brought my game up to a AAA level!
Richard`s camps are so sick!
