A NOTE FROM MO: Before getting to all of David’s accomplishments and his outstanding work ethic, I’d like to thank David’s mom, Jill. Jill saw me working with David within a group on skills and she noticed how focused I was on skills and details. Jill then put together a group of boys and parent in 2009 and their parents agreed to go along with my idea of putting our Mo’ Motion team into a new league I wanted to form called the Gotham Basketball Association.
I was in Maureen’s first class of athletes, so I guess I was in third grade or so. She took one look at my shooting form and told me that I could be a good shooter but I had to work on my technique and form. She spent what seemed like an hour explaining to me the importance of elbow position, square shoulders, and release point. Not much has changed since then.
Tired of swimming in the sea of youth basketball videos as a volunteer coach, paid coach, parent or a director of coaches? Coming up empty in trying to find a short, sweet version of how to do drills in the driveway with your kid? Online drills too intense, not organized, not realistic for growing bodies and ranges in age and ability?
Don’t sweat it. Now you’ve found the right gym. GKC is the beginning of an awesome youth basketball digital series for Ages 5-9, Ages 10-12 and Ages 13-18 produced by Maureen Holohan of Mo’ Motion. The series will allow you to connect with and build up your great kids because of your extra effort, hustle and love of the game.
