coaching experience

Coach Kieran:

For the last 15 years, Coach Kieran has been coaching, training and developing basketball players from 4 years of age all the way up to the Division I and Professional level.  From a physical standpoint, Coach Kieran’s style of training focuses heavily on proper warm up, effective footwork, basketball-specific resistance training, dribble and passing efficiency, shot preparedness and game-speed/multi-combo drills. From a mental and emotional standpoint, Coach Kieran focuses on mindfulness, mental strengthening and breathing exercises. In addition, he educates his players about short-term and long-term goal setting, which allows players an opportunity to learn how to hold themselves accountable and become more self-sufficient.

Coach Mickey:

Coach Mickey brings over 5 years of college coaching experience and 10+ years of youth basketball camp/league and AAU coaching experience to the team. A true brain when it comes to breaking down the x‘s and o’s of drills, practices, and games, Mickey‘s encyclopedic knowledge (especially on the defensive end) grows by the day.

Coach Ryan:

14-year ex-pro in the European Italian 2nd Division, Ryan began his successful playing career in his hometown of Newburgh, NY. Son of former New York Net George "The King" Bucci, who won an ABA Championship with Julius Irving in 1975-76 season, Ryan was a standout basketball player for the NFA Goldbacks. Ryan has played 14 straight seasons professionally overseas in Italy. He is eager to share his knowledge on mobility, stability, flexibility and mindfulness with the next generation of players. 

Coach John:

Coach JR has 10+ years of elite athletic development and runs his own power performance training business in Monroe, NY called "Believe Elite Athletic Training." Rahn has been playing basketball his entire life and also brings with him 2 years of college basketball experience. His unique range of experiences that include training many athletes at the Division I, Professional and Olympic levels allows Coach JR to introduce young athletes to the importance of proper movement and power training technique with a focus on nutrition and balance in their life.
