Michael Wearne is an amazing coach. His basketball wisdom is immense. Even for 'bigs' he can help them with the skills that only guards really perfect, and of course for smaller players these skills are essential. He has a relaxed style that is easy to understated but it is very effective. On two separate occasions he has provided a month of high intensity sessions for both of my sons, and each time it lead to each of them taking large steps up in their basketball. I recommend him without reservation.

Jack had a great first session with Michael, he helped Jack with his shooting and gave him some things to work on at home. Will definitely be booking more sessions in the the future.

Michael is an amazing coach my son is getting so much out of these sessions and extremely motivated to run the drills at home till the next session. Michael is great with kids and has a way with the way he speaks to them, kind natured yet still trains him hard. Best experience for my son by far.

Michael is an amazing coach and works so well with the kid's different abilities and coaching them to be the best they can be at basketball. I can't recommend him more highly he has had a huge impact on our kids and they love their sessions with him and have improved a lot.
