For most of the last decade I have been directly involved with coaching and teaching life skills and lessons to young people - always operating under my motto "Fun, Sportsmanship and Respect." 

Having coached dozens of teams in numerous sports, I have crafted an effective motivational and leadership style that has positively impacted hundreds of young people from all backgrounds and walks of life. 

Coach Rick is excited to use the latest technology to give his players the edge to be the best they can be, including the 94Fifty Smart Sensor basketball.



This tool gives players feedback to improve their dribbling and their shot by measuring their shot arc and velocity, while saving their measurements to a smartphone, so that Coach Rick can coach his players to perfect their ball skills.

My basketball journey began in the summer of 1973. Although I had always been a basketball player, and hoped to do so at my new college Penn State, an unfortunate trip to the Indy 500 resulted in my breaking my arm, and instead of playing, I was called upon to coach my very first team, the Pollock Hall Basketball Team. We were blessed to win the Intramural Championship that summer, and a career was born.

When my son was born in the fall of 1997, I looked forward to showing him how to become one of the best basketball players his age. I became involved in helping him and his teammates develop as basketball players and as people.

In addition to coaching his players, Coach Rick also enjoy connecting them with star athletes and coaches at the college and professional level. This gives them the opportunity to learn about all the hard work it takes to succeed in basketball, but also get advice and guidance on balancing school and high-level athletic performance.
