"Deion is fantastic!! We first met Deion when he coached our son's 4th grade team. He works to develop his players to be their best on the court while also promoting good values and sportsmanship when off the court. While Deion is competitive and coaches to win, he fosters a teamwork mentality and a fun environment. The boys love him! we have since used Deion for training for both our boys. He trains to each of their strengths and works on what needs improvement. Deion is patient and relates well with a variety of ages. As our boys have progressed, he continues to individualize his training to support continual improvement of their skills. My boys are now teenagers and we are still training with Deion and get excited if he is the coach of their teams. We started off calling him "Coach Deion" and now we call him our friend too! Deion is an all around great person... both kids AND parents think so!"

Deion has the powerful ability to rigorously develop his athletes’ skill sets while also building strong relationships with them and fostering strong team cohesion. He stands out as a coach and trainer in his “whole athlete” approach to player development, where he focuses on developing all aspects of an athlete’s development including developing physical conditioning, technical skills, mental performance skills, Game IQ, sportsmanship, and team cohesion. He brings a positive and high energy approach to his work with athletes and manages to always make the hard work fun which keeps the players motivated to perform! He has coached and trained our boys for several years and we are grateful for his positive impact on their development both on and off the courts!

"Deion is an amazing person! He is great with my son and my son loves him. Reagan learns something new after every single time working with Deion. He's the perfect combination of validating kids, while pushing them to get better. He teaches small details to my son in a way that he understands perfectly. He is always positive and upbeat. It's the small details that are going to give my kid an advantage that he would not have had without Deion. We are thrilled to have such a support in our lives for our child. We want to keep this going as long as Reagan is playing sports. I know there are big things for Deion in his future and for his company Stell Elite Sports Performance."
