Coach Matt was very enthusiastic and made sure everyone understood what was going on and all the terminology that was used. He shared stories with us about his basketball career, making it helpful for understanding actual game/ real-life scenarios.

Coach Matt was a different style of coaching then I was used to meaning he didn’t yell or get angry he had a very intentional way of correcting our mistakes so we could learn more and get rid of old bad habits.
