Youth Basketball Coach

SummLifehacker, Programmer, Explorer, Writer, LION

I grew up in a small town in Germany and lived my adult life in the greatest city on Earth – New York. I’ve been an audio-engineer, entrepreneur, Chinese language student, basketball coach and a programmer. I have been in China for over 3 years and worked as a youth basketball coach in many cities here. I started in Beijing and then decided to go see smaller cities of China and ended up in Jinhua, leading the basketball camp there. Within first 3 months of my coaching there we gained 150 new students who signed up for the whole year.

After Jinhua I came back to Beijing, to work for Microsoft. I was doing basketball coaching on the weekends and made many little kids fall in love with basketball.

My next step in coaching was Hangzhou city, where I currently live. I came here to help a new basketball company grow and was able to acquire 250 VIP students within first 4 months. I still live and work here, both parents and students like me a lot and I am happy to be able to help them.  


Coaching at all levels involves accepting the tremendous responsibility you face when parents put their children into my care. As a basketball coach, I do the following:

1. Provide a safe physical environment.
2. Communicate in a positive way.
3. Teach the fundamental skills of basketball.
4. Teach the rules of basketball.
5. Direct players in competition.
6. Help your players become fit and value fitness for a lifetime.
7. Help young people develop character.
