My daughter enjoys working with him. He is bringing out skills in her I didn’t know she had. Very personable coach. I would definitely recommend him.

Coach Larry is a very good and effective coach. My shot improved so much just in the first session. The drills we did were fun and were helping improve my ball control.

Within minutes Coach Daniels identified my sons weaknesses and began to work on them. Very diligent and focused on elevating my sons skill set. I noticed by the end of 1 session my sons confidence had risen. Look forward to working with him in our next 4 sessions.

Coach Larry was amazing and completely professional. He was waiting for us when we walked in the door, and he greeted us warmly. My son is 17 and has a good, overall skill set, but Coach Larry was able to quickly assess and identify the areas in his game that need adjustments for overall improvement. Coach Larry has both a personable demeanor and a strong presence. He is a very valuable resource, because his knowledge of the game is second to none. After one session, my son and I knew that he will be a great partner and one with the ability to bring out the best in any player at any level. We look forward to working with Coach Larry again very soon.

Coach Larry was very straight forward and so helpful within an hour...he's a coach that knows what he is doing...and fortunately doesn't cut any slack whatsoever. I highly recommend him. The great thing about it is this is my first session so I know for sure he will make me a dominate player and help me improve. 5 stars!

To whomever that reads this review, please consider Coach/Trainer Larry D to help you with your game. This guy is valuable. I had a great workout session yesterday with Coach Larry. He was intentional, established direction, recognized my weaknesses and gave proper basketball drills that would improve my game. I liked the fact the that Coach Larry is encouraging, but yet won't allow corners to be cut. If I was not properly doing a technique, then there was no "it's alright, lets go to the next drill, or that shot will count". I had to do it until I got it correct. I like people like that. He encouraged, challenged, and conditioned through drills all in one hour. There's no doubt that I will be booking again. Coach, if you read this, thank you for your time and I am looking forward to meeting up again soon.

Coach Daniels is a great basketball coach. I tend to struggle using my left hand while playing basketball, as my right hand is my dominant. Coach Daniels trains me to use my left hand while dribbling and making lay-ups. He gives constructive criticism on shooting form, and encourages me to keep trying until I reach my goal. He has many successful students, and I am on my way to becoming one of them under Coach Daniels. I definitely recommend Coach Daniels for basketball lessons.

I had the privilege of being the Team Manager for Head Coach Larry D during the 2016 Queensland Basketball League season. Out of all of the Coaches that I have managed teams for over the past 10 years, Coach Larry D was by far the most Experienced, Professional and dedicated Coach of them all. His knowledge of the game and his ability to read his players strengths and weaknesses are outstanding. His training sessions were always meticulously planned and well structured. Improvements in his players weaknesses were evident after only a few training sessions. Coach Larry D’s dedication and passion for the game of basketball extend beyond his Coaching ability and into Mentorship of his Players. He is a fantastic Mentor and role model to a large number of players. I would have no hesitation in recommending Coach Larry D as both an Individual Coach and/or Team Head Coach.
Wendy Sinclair Bundaberg Team Manager (Testimonial)
Coach Larry is a great basketball coach. I have been coached by him for a season in the Queensland Basketball League. I have been through many 1 hour skill sessions with Coach Larry as well as team trainings. He is a coach that is experienced and knows what he is doing which gave me a lot of confidence when playing under him. Not only has he helped me develop as a player through skill but also in my understanding of the game. I highly recommend Coach Larry as a basketball coach.
Jordan Annor / Professional Basketball from Australia (Testimonial)
I would like to say that I really didn’t know what to expect going into the Jr. High basketball season this year. After all, K. hasn’t really played basketball other than one time in an Upward league; so I was quite surprised when she told me she was playing this year. It was really hard for her at first, and she wanted to quit after the first week or so. But Coach D. kept telling her just to focus on the skills he was teaching them in practice and they would soon see big improvements. This is exactly what happened. It seemed an overnight revelation took place, and a light bulb turned on somewhere in the girls minds, and all of a sudden they were pretty good, and having fun too! Coach D. knew what he was doing and was able to communicate his knowledge and skills to the girls as well as motivate them into becoming better team players. Coach D. definitely has a gift for coaching as he’s proven that with Kendall’s team. Coach D. will be successful coaching at any level because he has that gift. I wish all of the best for Coach Daniels.
When my daughter started with Coach Daniels, her confidence was at an all time low. She was a freshman, on the varsity team and understandably not getting a lot of playing time. A new team, combined with a new coaching style impacted her performance greatly. I contacted Coach Daniels and after attending only a few sessions, it was amazing to see the transformation. Her ball handling, defense and shooting all improved immediately. Coach Daniels has a true gift from God. He has the ability to improve a player’s performance, push them to new levels and still make it fun. His ability to talk to the players and make things clear for them to understand is something that should never be underestimated. I will never be able to pay him enough for what he has given back to my daughter – her confidence and a new outlook. She is still growing as a player but now views her shortcomings as opportunities to improve rather than her fate. To see her smiling and enjoying the game again, lets me know that I made a wise choice when I contacted Coach Daniels. There isn’t a price tag that you can put on that! Thank you Coach Daniels for sharing your gift and we hope that your talent doesn’t take you where we can’t reach you.

Coach Daniels has been an instrument in helping building our girls basketball skills sets and teaching to have assurance and confidence in themselves. Grateful to God for the gift he has entrusted to Coach Daniel and coach willingness share with our girl his love and passion for the sport.
Coach Daniels is new to Canyon Creek and has been a wonderful basketball coach for the 7th and 8th grade girls. His extensive knowledge of the game is demonstrated through his ability to teach the girls the true fundamentals of basketball. Our daughter, Nia, has always enjoyed basketball, but Coach Daniels has broadened her understanding of the game, which has given her a greater appreciation for it. Over the past few months, we have been impressed by her growth and improved ability to handle the ball. When asked how she feels about Coach Daniels, she says he is very patient and takes time to show her how to improve as a player. She appreciates that he teaches new drills and then allows them to scrimmage afterwards. She especially enjoys playing defense. As parents, we realize how blessed we are to have someone with his experience and knowledge coach our daughter. She is more excited than ever to play her favorite game…basketball!

My daughter's basketball game has improved dramatically under the teachings of Coach Daniels. She was always scared to drive to the basket, shoot the ball and dribble down court. After working with Coach Daniels, she now averages 15 points per game, most being made by driving to the basket. Her ball handling skills have also improved tremendously. We are very pleased to have the privilege of being coached by him. Thanks Coach Daniels!
