About Michael


Bio

I have been coaching the great game of Basketball since 1974 at the youth, Middle School, and High School level, including 10 years with NJB in Saratoga and West San Jose (3 3rd places finishes nationally, and my own AAU program (Silicon Valley Storm).

I come from a lineage of coaches. My Father was a hall of fame coach from New Mexico, his brother was a hall of fame coach in Arizona, and my cousin is the Head Coach of the Atlanta Hawks. From them, and a long and continuing study of...

I have been coaching the great game of Basketball since 1974 at the youth, Middle School, and High School level, including 10 years with NJB in Saratoga and West San Jose (3 3rd places finishes nationally, and my own AAU program (Silicon Valley Storm).

I come from a lineage of coaches. My Father was a hall of fame coach from New Mexico, his brother was a hall of fame coach in Arizona, and my cousin is the Head Coach of the Atlanta Hawks. From them, and a long and continuing study of basketball, I have learned that basketball is not just "coaching", but teaching the game ... basic fundamentals, shooting, dribbling, passing are all taught skills, not natural skills. Combine this with passion, and a winner can be developed if one has the desire.

I have a simple philosophy about Basketball. Ground yourself in the fundamentals, compete with 100% effort, and, most importantly, Have FUN! You will learn the fundamentals of the game, or if you are an advanced player, I can specialize your training to bring out the best in your game.

Baseball

I learned baseball at the age of 5 and played through High School. Baseball is all about the fundamentals, teaching bat and ball control and instilling a deep love of the game.
Basketball

Basketball

I began playing basketball at the age of 3 in the high school gym my father coached at, and have competed in High School and college. Since 1972, I have coached middle school (the only undefeated record at my school, 2003 - 2007), took 3 NJB Teams to Nationals (3 third place finishes), coached high school, and ran my own AAU Basketball program. I focus on teaching the fundamentals and skills necessary for a basketball player to develop the foundation of their game, and then the advanced skills to take it to another level.
