Coach Bernard has helped me a lot with my footwork on offense and defense. He really pays attention to the fundamentals as well as the small details that can be big changes in your game. He will push you to be a better hooper.

Coach’s Corner

I have 21 years of coaching experience with  coaching at the high school and college level. I’ve been involved in various skill development camps since 1995 I have trained players from 5 years old to pro players.

My experience playing JUCO basketball in southern California has given me a great foundation for my coaching career. It was in junior college when I realized I had a passion to teach and share with younger players in summer camp. I also realized the importance of development starting at a younger age in developing good habits.

Today, I am currently the director and co-founder of The Filipino Basketball Academy where we teach and develop players from beginners to pro players all over the Philippines. For me, basketball has taught me life skill and character building through hard work and perseverance. I always look forward in meeting and sharing wisdom and knowledge of this wonderful game we all love. God bless and looking forward!
