Director of Player Development
Chris grew up playing basketball in New York City. Playground basketball and the CYO game honed his skills and prepared him for college basketball at the University of Maine at Fort Kent. Christopher was a point guard and has played against some of the best players of the last quarter century. He fell in love with the science of player development while playing and training with many NBA and WNBA players in Manhattan Beach, CA. Now in his forties, he still plays, but with a different level of athleticism. He has won several Austin City Championships as well as Lifetime Fitness League Championship.
Christopher aims to share his passion for the game of basketball with the youth of Austin. Formerly known exclusively for his player development work with high school players looking to make the collegiate playing ranks, Chris now also enjoys working with children as young as 8. Chris believes that the fundamentals of basketball can be taught with techniques that are very specific. Chris looks up to John Wooden as a coaching influence and aims to improve the games, minds, and souls of Austin’s young basketball players thru his player development programs.
Chris feels strongly that lessons learned on the court transfer to success on our journeys in life. He hopes to be a small part in the successful life journeys of Austin’s youth.
