Jared Derkatz

Coach & Founder

Jared has been involved with basketball for over 15 years, either playing competitively up to the college levels, coaching school and club teams of various age groups, or working with individuals 1-on-1 looking to expand their game into the next level. 

Although his competitive playing days are behind him, he continues to grow and develop his skill set so that he might pass on his knowledge to the next generations, and help them expand their games.

Jared has worked professionally in the fitness industry for the past 5 years, working with athletes of all ages and of all sports, focusing on skill development and improving physical performance. 

He also runs his own personal training company specializing in elite level training for military, law enforcement, and firefighters, or members of the general public who are looking to reach new peaks in their fitness endeavors.

It has long been a passion and goal of Jared's to grow and develop his own basketball based company, and the level of dedication and personal touch he provides is second to none.

Hendrix & Oakley's Parents

The kids learned great skills and had so much fun. They gave them the confidence to take the shot; even if they just missed they still tried after. We loved the life lessons the coaches gave to the kids. It's one thing if mom says it, but if it comes from coach it must be true!!

Their program is well structured and their coaches are knowledgeable. Coach Jared has experience with kids and it shows, he teaches not just basketball skills, but also great life skills. Always great to learn how to apply things you learn while practicing a sport in your daily life. They are always patient with the kiddos even when they are not on their best behaviour.

Jared really helped me elevate my game to another level. He is the reason I am the captain of my basketball team. He helped me develop my skills in every way, even my mental game. I would highly recommend coming to see him!

"I have worked with Jared for five years, and have grown as an athlete and a competitor in ways that I would never have anticipated. Jared has not waivered in his investment in me as an athlete, through all my trials and tribulations, and as a result, I now have a much firmer education in athletic development"

1-on-1 Client's Parents

I must say that we couldn’t be more pleased with coach Jared this far. Between my wife and I, and our kids, we’ve been involved in a lot of different sport at all sorts of levels and have come across a wide range of coaching and I am really impressed with Jared’s process, ability to quickly evaluate a player and their needs, and then adapt to their needs with drills and tailored practice plan, all without wasting time. It’s as if he’s watched our kid play for years already and knows their needs and temperament. And, he does all this with patience, positivity, and with realistic goals and expectations.

"I have trained with Jared for 3 years now and I must say that he has been by far the best trainer I have had the opportunity to work with. Jared brought a diverse approach towards the training sessions, enabling me to challenge myself constantly and, in turn, achieve the results I desired. He exudes professionalism in all aspects of the profession, and with the knowledge he possesses, I believe any one will benefit greatly from his expertise."
