Hi, I'm Coach Thomas, and I have a passion for basketball. I played basketball in high school then continued playing in college. With relationships that were developed during my time in college, I went on to Assistant Coach on the collegiate level.

Coaching Philosophy

I believe that basketball is more than just a game; it is an opportunity to develop life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance. My coaching philosophy focuses on developing the whole player, both on and off the court. I believe that a positive attitude, hard work, and a growing mindset are the keys to success.

Training Methods

My training methods are designed to help youth basketball players develop their skills in a fun and engaging way. I focus on individual skills such as ball handling, shooting, and footwork, as well as team play, including offensive and defensive strategies. I tailor my training to different age groups and skill levels, ensuring that each player gets the attention and instruction they need to improve.


“Coach Thomas played a significant role in my athletic and personal development. From peewee basketball to college, he was there for me through injuries and even helped fine-tune my game during breaks. It’s clear that Coach Thomas took his role as my coach seriously and not only trained me as an athlete but also as a person, offering valuable advice that still holds true today. It’s great to have someone like Coach Thomas in your corner, supporting you every step of the way.“

Yazmin Batch

“I’ve known Thomas as a teammate, coach, and friend. He uses his wealth of basketball knowledge to develop players with great character & discipline.”

Josh Austin

Head Men’s Basketball Coach


Coach Thomas has had the privilege of coaching many talented basketball players over the years. Some of his former players have gone on to earn scholarships, make all-star teams, and even become coaches themselves. However, he is most proud of the players who have improved their skills and confidence through hard work and dedication.

advice to parents

For parents and players who are looking to improve their basketball skills, my advice is to focus on the fundamentals. Practice ball handling, shooting, and footwork every day, and don't be afraid to make mistakes. Find a coach who is knowledgeable, positive, supportive, and can help you develop your skills in a fun and engaging way.
