Hi, I'm Coach Teddy
Working with youth is my passion
Basketball is my passion, plain and simple. The road to my love for basketball started out with a passion for athletics in general, specifically track. I was able to develop my skills in the 400m race and cross country, which gave me the opportunity to compete nationally. As I worked to master that sport, I wanted to push my body to new limits and develop additional skills. This is where I found my love for the game of basketball. I began to play basketball in middle school through high-school, my hard work enabled me to become one of our city’s top players. This then paved the way for my collegiate career as starting shooting guard for Georgian College in the greater Toronto area. I’m thankful for my time at Georgian because it allowed me to develop professional basketball skills that I have been able to use in my training sessions today.
One thing I know is that I wouldn’t have been as successful as I am today if it weren’t for those who coached, guided and mentored me along the way. I was very fortunate to be able to play under Coach Tarry Upshaw (Team Canada) in college and then work under him as part of the coaching staff at Georgian. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with a number of successful high schools programs, middle schools and even work with elementary aged players.
My combined training and experience has led me to where I am now. Currently, I have the privilege of working with 100+ youth across King County, weekly. I’ve built partnerships with private schools and reputable organizations such as The LocalHoops Training Academy. Through my teachings and trainings, we’ve had unprecedented success that I am excited to continue.
Teddy is fantastic! We especially love his genuine desire to teach as well as his kindness, patience and continued encouragement while the kids learn. He was able to analyze specific areas of work for our daughter and then specialize a program to meet her training needs and take her to the next level. This has been a wonderful and well worth while experience for us! I can't say enough great things about Teddy and we feel very fortunate to have found him!
