To prepare players for every possible contingency that they may possibly face in a game situation. 


  • “Manifest plainness, embrace simplicity, reduce selfishness, have few desires.” -Lao Tzu-

    • Pragmatic approach: Evolve & Win

    • Is what I am teaching you preparing you for the next level? (HS, College, Pros)

    • Is what I am teaching having a direct impact on winning?

  • Supreme Preparation= Supreme Performance



  • Formation, Action, Read/Execution, Repeat...

While training, major points of emphasis are: Mental: “The game is under taught and over-coached.” Too often emphasis is spent on the “what” and not the “how to.” 


  • Focus

    • Play Present; Focus on the present moment, that is all you have control over. 

    • Every rep/possession deserves your optimal focus and effort


  • Discomfort

    • Understanding that progress is often made by performing tasks that are not comfortable or pleasing.


  • Knowing what to use, when to use it, and why.


Every key isn’t made for every hole.  The emphasis is to make sure players understand when to use their tools.
