Mike brings a tenacity and excitement to his coaching that is infectious. Kids love the enthusiasm and fun with which he coaches, but they also know that when it’s game time, he plays to win! He is a Senior Trainer and Camp Director for TTA.
After dunking in his very first pee wee basketball game, Mike’s parents knew he was a go-getter. Sure, it was a mini-court then with lower goals, but today he loves to re-live the moment on regulation rims.
Mike loves to coach! He enjoys the teachable moments that can unexpectedly occur both on and off the court. He’s a natural leader and the kids respect his character and skill. When he talks, they listen.
Mike believes that the best way to reach kids through the game of basketball is patience. No player develops at the same pace, and he works with kids as long as they need it.
