Why East Bay Waves

“I started this program to share my knowledge, experience, and passion about basketball as well as life lessons with the young generation. The fundamentals and skill development are often overlooked because of the “win now” mentality/culture among many youth sports coaches or parents. Basketball is my vehicle to promote the importance of fundamentals, skill development, and process. It will help the youth to realize life beyond winning or losing and to see/appreciate the world.”
