"The gift, talent or ability God gave you is your key to success. He did not give it to you to waste but to be poured out, used and invested."
<Coach Garrett is a very insightful, thoughtful and very efficient coach. We have been training with him for over a month, 2-3 sessions per week and recently renewed to go another month.
From the opening minutes of our training, it was clear that he coaches with the wisdom only a former college + professional player can bring to the table. Everything from learning to practice off-balance form shooting, to game-speed drills to the detailed instruction on footwork to create an open shot and subtle defensive tactics that future coaches will notice.
Beyond the training on court, Coach Garrett has also provided incredibly valuable exposure to compete and play with + against high caliber players via opportunities in the local area. He's connected and respected. This not just gives the opportunity for players to test their new skills, but it also builds confidence in the process.
Coach Garrett is dependable, organized and someone you can trust your child with as an athlete and a person. James Mathews Founder EleveteX
USBasket Point Guard of the Decade, Majic Dorsey : My Relationship with Coach
Garrett is like a father-son relationship. Not only with me, but he is like that with each of his players. That is what I like most about him. He is tough, he is nice, and he can get mean when he
needs to be to make you better. He is one of the best coaches I have ever played for. I have played for him in four different seasons in my career. My rookie season in 2005 he and Orlando Magic NBA
Head Advance Scout Harold Ellis were a big reason I was a Top 60 Player among the NBA Pre-Draft Camp Invitees. I won two Championships, and 3 MVP Awards with Coach Garrett as my Coach. In 2006 he
coached me overseas in Mexico. I lead the LNBP in points with an average of 32.9ppg and was drafted to the NBA D-League. Then he coached me again in 2007 for Mayas USA and we won the Championship and
I was named MVP and leading scorer of the league with an average of 30.3ppg. The way he coaches and reaches out to me on and off the court is amazing. He is a teacher of the game along with being a
former player. So, with the knowledge he has I have always succeeded on the court.
Learning from coach Garrett's pro knowledge is the best advice I can give. Good luck!
