About
Come and see what we are all about.

Find out who Coach Durwin is and why Gladiator School Training is so important to him.

Train like a warrior and you'll win every battle.

I coach and train for the love of the game and to help give young men and women the knowledge and exposure that I didn't receive growing up.

I'm not someone's dad who only coaches to ensure that their kid plays the most minutes or takes the most shots. I'm not out to get rich off of training kids who I can't help achieve their goals.

I've realized that my entire basketball career was mapped out to help me learn the game and experience the highs and lows of the game so I could help develop players. I know how it feels to hit a game winner in a championship game and to have my career end on the first injury that I've ever had.

In my heart I know that my purpose is to help kids get better and basketball is the platform that God gave me to accomplish my mission. Through basketball I will teach every child that I coach/train discipline, the importance of hard work, integrity, accountability, fundamentals, proper nutrition, strength and conditioning, basketball IQ, and the ability to be better than the person and player that they were yesterday!

I can not guarantee that everyone that goes through Gladiator School will earn a college scholarship or become an All-American but I can guarantee that I will give my all to helping them improve in every aspect both on and off the court.
 
My training is second to none simply because I was coached by some of the best coaches in the Country and I took the best aspects of what I've learned and implemented it into my coaching philosophies, the results speak for themselves.
 
You can ask anyone that I've coached or their parents, better yet you can ask anyone that I've coached against or anyone who has seen me coach, I bring a Coach K passion to the game and  a teachers patience and ability to help players adjust during the game. I'm not perfect but perfection is what I strive to achieve and my work ethic and enthusiasm is contagious.
 
THE FIRST TRAINING SESSION IS 100% FREE. If this isn't for you then pass the flyer to someone who wants to achieve greatness, being the best isn't for everyone.
