Coach Anthony

Turning your kid into an All-Star!

About Me

As a personal coach, my goal is to see a player enjoy and have fun, while playing the sport that they love. Just because they aren’t succeeding at first, doesn’t mean they should give up or have someone give up on them. With a little extra help and commitment, everyone can achieve their goals. -Anthony Garrett


I enjoy teaching fundamentals and basketball intellect to kids and seeing how it translates into their game on the court. I like to focus on their strengths, while exploiting and bettering their weaknesses – creating a better overall skill level.


I craft my game based off of fundamentals, scheme exploitation, and catching ability. I like to teach and help my students understand the difference between how to read a coverage, how to improve their catching ability, and how to run precision routes. Also, footwork is key attribute to focus on, regardless of the position. Football is my passion, and I believe that it teaches great character and team building.
