Coach Robinson has a deep passion and love for the game of basketball, but more importantly he gets really excited about passing on knowledge that he has gained and is gaining!
"I love to see growth in people over-all, not just in the area of basketball" -Coach Karl
He has been known for his fundamental approach to the game and work ethic. He is great at analyzing and helping improve players' weaknesses.
Coach K. is a spokesman for the underdog, and his story isn't different from many, but it is inspiring.
"I never played in middle school; never went to basketball camp. I played one year in highschool, my senior year, and was able to play two years Junior College" -Coach Karl
He is a testament to that old saying that "hardwork pays off"! Playing at the college level, he received "Most Improved Player" his freshman year and his sophomore year "Academic Player of the Year"!
Training with Coach Robinson is intense, informative and challenging. He has a plethora of offensive and defensive drills that translate to the game!

Being involved in sports has helped me excel in my academics. I became a true student athlete. Playing sports made me become accountable for my actions. I knew that I was not only representing my school but my family as well. I learned how to be a team player. When individuals work together much can be accomplished. I developed strong leadership skills that has helped be in places I never thought or imagined I could be in. It helped me to become a more socialable and outgoing person. By playing sports I have built relationships with individuals that will last for a lifetime. I am thankful that my parents kept my siblings and myself involved in sports because of it we have become good productive citizens in this society.
Yanesha's desire for working with 3D is to help build a well respected program in the community based on dedication, loyalty, and work ethic. To be a positive inspiration to the youth by using her gifts in sports to give back and encourage them to strive for what they want in life.

Coach Ronald (RJ)
I am (Coach Rj) Ronald Hurston Jr, a native of Jackson, MS. Basketball has been apart of my life as far back as I can remember. I started playing city league and AAU basketball as early as 9. My passion for the game lead me to devote my time to giving back the knowledge I have gained and started my coaching career at the age 18. My goal is not only to create better athletes and better basketball players, but disciplined young men and women on and off the court to ensure an easier path to achieving their goals. I continue to study the game to provide players with deeper knowledge that allows them to play with deeper sense of purpose!
I scout players in the local area with great potential and invite them to become STANDOUTS!
