About Danny

Thank you for visiting! I'm a basketball coach with over 12 years of experience teaching the game to players of all levels. I have recently become accredited as a USA Basketball Certified Youth Development coach, and am the former Director, Sports Programs, at a center in New York City. In addition, in New York I was a basketball clinician for the youth development portion of the New York Knicks Community Relations department, where I had the opportunity to coach youth in camps and clinics throughout the year.
My focus is on the fundamentals of the game for youth ages 8-14, including drills, skill building through repetition, and consistent confidence building and positivity. I emphasize the improvement of weaknesses in all facets of the game for youth and adults ages 15 and up. While I specialize in guard skills, shooting, and footwork, I have worked with many "bigs" and am able to teach all aspects of the game from basic fundamental mechanics through advanced concepts for more skilled players.
I have worked privately with hundreds of individuals and small groups over the course of the last 12 years and have recently relocated to the Bay Area where I am going to graduate school to study Sport Psychology.
