“Those who can teach, have a responsibility”, which is not only something Coach Anderson is known for saying, but something he lives by. “
Coach had a natural love and understanding of the technical game of basketball. He began to help give kids an understanding of what the game was about also. He began as a volunteer assistant coach for Manchester High School in Midlothian, Virginia. He then took a position as the head freshman coach at Manchester High. While coaching, he focused on developing the player’s fundamental skills so that they would have a stronger foundation as they moved up to play higher competition.
Later on that year, he began his training program, Foundation Academy Sports, which would give kids the one on one attention they needed in order to improve their all-around game by strengthening their fundamentals.
