“Some people want it to happen. Some wish it would happen. Some make it happen.”

“Taylor Jannsen is one of the hardest working players I have had during my 15 year coaching career. His passion and competitive spirit is second to none. Taylor always impressed me with his relentless desire to keep getting better, and always looking for a way to improve. That work ethic, combined with his excellent communication skills and committment to his academic work, has always led me to believe that he will be great at anything he chooses to do. Taylor loves working with young athletes, and I know he will do an amazing job developing young people into great players, AND great people. He knows how to teach, motivate, and improve young people.”

 

— Coach Dave Buchanan, Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at NCAA D1 Drake University

Taylor’s communications skills and attention to details, the little things, sets him apart from others that might be re-creating a “work-out” that they read in a book.  Taylor assesses the individual athlete, analyzes those fundamental skills needed for your athlete and their sport, and then structures training programs with skill specific movements.  His vast basketball knowledge allows him to teach and correct the skill specific action while pushing the athlete to improve.
