Client Reviews

Signed my son up with Arizona Athletics and I’m so happy I did. My son didn’t have much skill level he is only 7 but WOW just in a few short months he is doing awesome. The coach is seriously so encouraging and he actually takes the time to talk to you without you feeling rushed or like your annoying him. I I feel like that speaks highly of his character and definitely shows in the way he coaches my son and the other young kids. One last thing This is not your typical YMCA kind of program he teaches real skills and puts a lot of effort into your child.

– Aaron Braude (Pinnacle High School)

His positive attitude and passion for the game are just two of the reasons he’s one of the best skills coaches we’ve met over the years. He teaches skills, technique and strategy while providing positive feedback to raise the effort level the ENTIRE session, and he brings it EVERY SINGLE DAY. One of the best young men I’ve had the pleasure to meet.

My 14 year-old daughter has been training with Elijah for almost a year. Her growth and improvement has been incredible! She loves training with Elijah and looks forward to their time together. The drills he runs her through are challenging most times. However, he sticks with her through them until she is confident and proficient in the skill. I would highly recommend Elijah Knox as a trainer for anyone seeking to improve their game. His knowledge as a trainer, patience with the kiddos, and professionalism set him apart from the rest!!!

I’ve never met someone more passionate about what they do! His demeanor, knowledge base, and dedication are unmatched! If you are trying to get to the next level with your game and you aren’t training with DJ Handles, you are doing yourself a disservice!
