Can you imagine being trained by your favorite player?
Can you imagine if CP3, Kobe, Lebron, Shaq, Larry. Magic, M J, DWade, or whoever your's may be, would take the time to teach you?  That's what happened to Coach Jim!
The greatest college player of ALL TIME, "Pistol" Pete Maravich taught Coach Jim, from age 11 to 18 years old and now he passes on the same knowledge and skills to YOU!
Coach Jim has a long history of basketball, learning how to play from one of the best players ever, "Pistol" Pete Maravich.  Back in the early 70's to 1978, Jim
trained and learned the game from some of the finest trainers and coaches, such as "Boots" Garland (LSU), Buddy Broussard & Gayle Hatch (Foxy's Health Club),
plus players such as Pete Maravich, Ronnie Maravich, Joe Dean, Bill Whittle, and the list goes on!
After high school, Coach Jim was set to play college basketball for Louisiana College, in Pineville, La., but at age 19 was stricken with a very rare tumor, and that
ended his college hopes for playing basketball.  However, after a lengthy recovery, Coach Jim went into a rigorous training program and played 5 seasons of Semi-Pro
basketball and traveled with a tournement team.  He also played 10 years of Pro-Am basketball.
Coach Jim has worked numerous basketball camps, including LSU, and attended a player workout with the NBDL Mobile Revelers in 2003.  He has also become a
Certified Trainer of Sports and started a Certification program for all his staff members. Coach Jim is now an Semi-Pro Assistant Coach for the Baton Rouge
High School, AAU, Semi-Pro, Pro-Am as a player, and endless training as a player, coach and trainer has given Coach Jim the skills and knowledge to pass on to boys and
girls who love the game of basketball, specializing in shooting & offensive play, taught more than 1500 jumpers, for more than 30 years!
