Welcome to my new blog!

The purpose of this blog is to share my athletic knowledge and experience with you.  There will be information on ELITE basketball training, jump program and other information on athletic development.

“Missy, you have always inspired me as a person and as a player. Without your help, I would not be the person I am today.
You’ve taught me how to shoot correctly, talk on the court, and helped me to play big, even though I am not very tall.
You’re a great role model, coach, and trainer. If anyone wants to get into top physical condition, or become and elite basketball player, whether they’re tall or small, slow or quick, you are the person to see.”

Easton, 8th grade

Hi Guys,

My former UMAINE teammate and current professional player Heather Ernest and I created a quick 10 minute DVD of post and guard drills.  Let me know what you think,  if you are interested in purchasing the DVD,  or a consultation.
