Coach Matt's experience coaching basketball
I have played basketball since I was 5 years old. I am currently 39 and still play twice a week. But, I have coached since I was a freshman in college. I always knew I wanted to be a coach. My uncle, Jim O'Brien, won a championship as an asst coach with Kentucky in 1996 and coached in the NBA for 20+ years. I'd say he was a pretty big influence on me!
I was lucky enough as a player to have excellent coaches along the way including Paul McShane Sr, Tom Rayer, and Steve Cloran.
Then I coached with Herb Magee, Jim Reilly, Kyle Epps, and Steve Cloran (again).
I became a school teacher so that I had a job that aligned with coaching. I spent entire summers at Pocono camps working for Bob Hurley Sr (St. Anthony's), his son Danny Hurley (UConn) and Kevin Boyle (Montverde Academy). I would come back and work Phil Martelli's camps at SJU and Betterball/Mission 5&2 with the Clorans.
Most importantly, and this would be true for any subject, it's what I've spent the most time thinking about. It's my biggest passion and I am constantly reflecting on how to teach the game in a way that's easiest to understand.
In the spring of 2022, I decided to follow my dreams and be involved with basketball full time. Now as a basketball entrepreneur I get to create cool experiences like this!

What our customers are saying...
Hi, Matt!I just wanted to thank you for offering such a warm welcome today in the basketball clinic.
My son absolutely loved it and as a parent, I was incredibly impressed with how organized you were and how smoothly everything ran.
It is not a given that sports organizations take the time to extend such courtesy and warmth; it is clear you put forth that effort and we are so grateful!
I just signed him up for the only other clinic we can make (October 2!), so he will see you then.We are excited to join you this winter once basketball is in full swing!
