"Basketball is not just about basketball!" - Irv Magill

I started playing basketball at age eight with my dad. Early on he emphasized the importance of ball handling and passing skills. He taught me how to see the whole court and become a more complete player. I spent hours independently developing my skills and understood that individual work was extremely important. Once my skills were developed, I took my game to the streets of Philadelphia.

Growing up playing ball in North and West Philly taught me how to play with the mental and physical toughness that is needed in today’s game. I competed with the best “ballers” in the city. I played organized basketball in school and studied basketball philosophies taught by the best coaches in the country.

Court Sense was derived from my playing experiences and passion for learning and studying this great game. I’m a hands-on instructor and have the ability to demonstrate all the skills performed by today’s college and NBA players.

I have years of experience both playing and teaching, and have successfully trained hundreds of young basketball players over the past fifteen years. Many of my students have gone on to play at the college level and some professionally. I am a life-long student of the game, and still learn something new all the time. I am passionate about teaching and sharing my knowledge with those who participate in my Court Sense program. I make no guarantees when it comes to the level of play students will attain. Success depends upon one’s athleticism, drive, attitude and determination. However, I love mentoring young people on their way to playing basketball at a higher level and building self-esteem and confidence for life as well.
