what makes us Different


All of our coaches complete a stringent certification process before joining the Rise as One staff. This includes a USA Basketball license, NCAA BBCS certification, NFHS Coaching level 1 certification, and Positive Coaching Alliance certificate. Well-trained coaches ensure that your child will be coached with the latest techniques, strategies and safety guidelines.


Former players

Our Staff is comprised of former college and professional basketball players. They have real-world, on court experience from a player’s perspective. This gives our players a real competitive edge. There is a fine line between good and great, and it is often experience.


We pride ourselves on providing the very best parent and player experience. We don’t make generic claims, we put our words into action by ensuring our coaches are qualified to help develop players the right way. Our coaches provide film sessions, progress reports, and extra practices as needed to ensure teams are prepared to give their best on game day.



Our staff doesn’t just coach, they motivate. Being part of a basketball team is exciting, but there are also many challenges as players go through the process of becoming a cohesive team. All players want to be inspired. Inspiration allows them to push themselves and improve. You can have a great coach, but if he fails to motivate and inspire his players, they will not live up to their potential. Rise as One coaches have the perfect balance of technical teaching and motivation that will equip and inspire players to play at their full potential.
