AAU 8th Grade Girls Last Practice - Players VS. Parents game Photo Gallery
I started playing basketball at the age of 7. My very first glorious move in practice was a travel (No dribble was needed not did I think it was necessary!) off my first catch...
I then kept practicing and working hard, climbed through the ranks, from pee-wees to U18 until I got my first shot at the pro level at 17 years old.
I then went on to play on the professional level in Israel for almost 7 years, racking up points, rebounds and most important - memories I would not trade for anything in the world.
I decided to stop playing basketball and to take a short break to go to college in California.
It was after I have moved to NYC that the basketball bug took control of me in the form of coaching.
I had no idea how great this next chapter would be...
I am the Director of Basketball Operations for the UMass Lowell Women's Basketball. 2014 - 2015 will be my first year working in the NCAA DI level and I couldn't be more excited and motivated to coach!
After coaching at the middle school and high school levels, as well as the DIII level with Nichols College last season as an Assistant Women's Basketball Coach, I am making the move to DI. Undoubtedly, I have made the best choice for my career and personal life in moving to Massachusetts in April of 2013.
Teaming up with MT Elite AAU only 2 days after moving I have been so fortunate to be coaching 2 great girls teams, along with the opportunity to continue running skills clinics and camps in the Massachusetts area.
As I continue to work at my craft on a daily basis I am humbled by every opportunity the present itself to me.
There is never enough time for learning all the things I want to learn and for growing as much as I would like to grow in this profession and as a person.
"I still have great passion for the game and for coaching. But the Olympic experience taught me a lot of things and when you combine passion with new knowledge you continue to grow. And I never want to stop growing. "
- Mike Krzyzewski.
If one of the best coaches in the world has this kind of passion for growth at his age, how can I afford to have any less?
Who Am I...?
My name is Ido Singer and I am a basketball coach, teacher and student of the game. I am a former professional European player that fell out of love with playing the game and madly in love with teaching and coaching it.
My passion in life is to share my knowledge, as well as learn all that I can about this great game. I have coached players of all ages, ranging from six years old to eighteen in both high school and AAU, NCAA and all the way to professional players.
Being an avid learner of the game of basketball, having learned from many great professional coaches, and with my recent work with an NBA skill development coach, I believe I bring a unique approach to coaching basketball and to skill development. I continue to learn and get better every day. I intend to share my knowledge on this website with you.
