Pete is the founder of The Works Basketball Academy and a former Division I Men’s basketball assistant coach and former head high school basketball girls and boys coach, with over 30 years of coaching and training experience.
The Works was created to reach the athlete who needs help leveling the playing field in a storm of elite and over-trained young athletes. Pete has assembled a staff of trainers, educators, coaches, and former collegiate and high school players to do just that.
Pete leads The Works with his passion for helping young players be safe, healthy and successful in their athletic endeavors.
Unlike programs focusing on either conditioning or sports skills, I combine conditioning that follows a cutting-edge philosophy and protocols with top-notch sports fundamentals training. I take a holistic approach to sports training for winning results! I work hard to create the proper foundation for success by modeling the desired task, then gradually shifting responsibility to the player. I take into account the player’s knowledge of the game and build from that point.
