Director, Owner – Coach Joao Costa
At JCbasketballhoops I specialize in private and group instruction of basketball skills at all levels. I teach basketball clinics around the world to all levels of basketball players. Each student at JCbasketballhoops receives detailed individual attention in basketball fundamentals with added emphasis on speed, strength, agility, and coordination. As an international speaker I travel around the World lecturing and teaching coaches how to improve their practice programs and teach the fundamentals with my unique drills. I was encouraged to share my unique drills by both players and coaches from around the world and that is what prompted me to write my basketball books.
