I’m Joe and I noticed your playing & coaching background and wanted to talk to you about your experience! I actually run a service in the Atlanta area that connects local youths with ex-college/pro basketball players for private lessons and was wondering if you would be interested in the opportunity. It’s a premium service which allows us to compensate our coaches very well and it’s a great way to give back to the community.
If not, could you help me connect with basketball players in the Atlanta area who played in college/professionally? Hope to hear back from you, thanks! Joe
Hello Coach,I would like your professional opinion, I have been coaching high school girl’s varsity the pass 3yrs and I have 3 underclassmen that are being highly recruited. But recently, I was offered a volunteer position at a D3 school to be assistant women’s coach. My goal is to become a college coach, would it be a better move to college now or stay in high school until these players finish up?
