One thing I have learned from my past is that with a good coach, any goal is possible. From youth sports, to high school and even to college, I have been blessed with the opportunity to have been coached by some of the best in the Sacramento area. Those who mentored and tutored me one-on-one really helped me to develop my game and skills. They helped me reach new heights and achieve things that I thought weren't even possible.
My experience in sports started at a young age with playing soccer, basketball and running track. I played in the Elk Grove youth leagues and also participated in many summer programs at local high schools and colleges. I lettered in three different sports at Elk Grove High, which included soccer, basketball and track. During my years there, I was tutored and mentored by great coaches and leaders, which sparked my interest in one day helping to do the same. After graduating and taking sometime away from sports, I returned to the courts years later to play at Sacramento City College and finish my basketball career there. It was a great experience to gain further knowledge into what it takes to play in the next levels. I studied and read about and learned through courses of schooling and real life opportunities what is needed to excel as an athlete.
Hard work and dedication is something that I preach to everyone I coach and tutor in sports. Practice is an essential part of that process because the more work you put into it, the more you will get out of it. I teach basic techniques and fundamentals in soccer, basketball and track. Things that will help any athlete better themselves and increase their levels of confidence. I also make sure that they stay focus off the court and take care of responsibilities at school, at home and around their community. Sports is a passion I have, but other things do come first.
I want to help anyone that has the desire to reach their full potential. Whether it's through baby steps or running strides, I'm willing to bring all my knowledge and resources to the table to help make any student the best athlete possible.
As an athlete, I have participated in basketball since I was a young boy, playing four years in high school and two years in junior college. I have helped run many summer camps over the years that I played, and I have studied courses in sports coaching and management as well. I've also tutored students in after school programs, as a volunteer coach of CYBL leagues and through other recreational leagues.
I started playing soccer at age six in recreational leagues and played four years on the team at Elk Grove High. I participated in Select teams and traveled playing on a few All-Star teams as well. I helped coach in a recreation league along with refereeing games, both outdoor and indoor. I have studied the game of soccer for many years and have many resources to tutor in it.
