Knowledge of the game

Summer ball is right around the corner and it’s time to prepare for the AAU circuit.  Cornelius Holden, also known as Coach Corn, runs an AAU program and truly prepares kids for the rigors of high school basketball.  Take Jaron Martin (UC Irvine) for instance.  The kid was a stud at Chaminade before slipping in the backdoor at UC Irvine.  Now Jaron is an integral part of what UC Irvine does – despite the criticism of his size.  Jaron started young training with Corn, who develops kids from all ages.   It’s not just the physical aspect but the mental approach he has for the game as well.

What separates Corn from other coaches is his vast knowledge of the game. He’s played the highest level of ball in high school at the Shaw, when they were ranked #1 in the nation in 1988, as well as for Coach Denny Crum at the University of Louisville.  Just being able to pick the brain of someone who’s learned from Denny Crum should be a no-brainer in my eyes.    As a Coach, sometimes its all about the wars you have been through as a player and how you can transfer this knowledge to your kids. Players seeking a fresh start and a new mindset should definitely contact Coach Corn and come out for a workout.
You have nothing to loose and everything to gain.
