Ahmed called on a number of the best high school and college coaches for interviews. With some, he volunteered to work with them. With others he was able to just watch & learn from them. He met and spoke with child education specialists. He developed a system for teaching kids, not only about the game of basketball, but about how to better themselves.
Ahmed organized and coached teams. He took these teams on to compete at the local, state, and National level. His system worked.
Over the last 15 years Ahmed has been fortunate enough to learn from some great AAU, high school, and college coaches.
His own experience at all levels in his career has taught him a lot about the game of basketball both on and off the courts. However, it was the harsh lessons he learned as a child, combined with the lessons he has learned teaching kids, that have truly prepared him to become a great coach as well as purpose, will, skill and motivation developer.
