Metuchen Basketball Training For Results!

As the former head boys basketball coach at Metuchen High School we experienced a ton of success winning over 100 games in seven years with two state finals appearances and one county finals appearance.  In that time one of my teams went 22-3 and had the highest winning percentage of any team in Metuchen High School history and I went on to compile the second highest win total and highest winning percentage of any boys basketball coach in Metuchen School History.  While there, our teams were consistently ranked as one of the highest scoring teams in the county and group one.  I attribute most of this offensive success to our focus on skill development each and every practice.  Having an philosophy that centered around every player being a threat on the court and having the ability to dribble, pass, and shoot made our teams versatile, dangerous, and very difficult to defend.  It posed matchup problems for other teams whose bigs had difficulty coming out to the perimeter or in some cases the full court to defend our multi-skilled players. Now retired from high school coaching and working full time as a Metuchen basketball trainer, this philosophy has carried over into my company, Elite Basketball Training.  Elite Basketball Training ensures that Metuchen basketball players are getting the most thorough basketball training experience in New Jersey.  Just like those who train with us that have developed into well rounded basketball players, Elite Basketball Training is a multifaceted company that provides basketball skill development, basketball specific sports performance training, nutrition and supplement advice, and college planning services to all the Metuchen basketball players in our training family.
