Tome Barros has become a role model to many in his family and community. He has had an unyielding passion for the sport of Basketball, and this love of the game has led him to attain great success over the years. Currently preparing for a trip to Spain to further his career, Mr. Barros will spend his time traveling Europe teaching others about the game and its virtues.
Tome also has many fond memories of his time growing up as a Boston youth; consequently, he does all that he can to uplift the next generation of Boston teens.
My main goal is to provide inner city youth with academic & athletic scholarships, equal employment, and help build their motivation.
In His Own Words:
I am a 30 year old former basketball player. In 2010-2011, I traveled across the globe to Senegal, Brazil and Cape Verde for a year to run my own basketball skills academy. During my time overseas I was able to intern with the most notorious international basketball camp, NBA and FIBA’s “Basketball Without Borders”. During my time coaching overseas I was able to learn from some notable NBA head coaches, assistants and NBA executives and apply those principles to my basketball academy.
I have a very serious passion for the game and a dedication to helping youth develop the skills needed to be a great basketball player both on and off the court. The sport of basketball has single handedly influenced the person I have become today with the lessons of hard work, perseverance and determination that I’ve learned on the hardwood.
I am currently a specialized trainer and would love the opportunity to train and work closely with young basketball players who are dedicated to learning and improving their skills.
I currently coach kids ages 4.5 up to professional adults and am comfortable in any environment. My workouts consist of the five essential parts of basketball which is DEFENSE, SHOOTING, PASSING, DRIBBLING AND CONDITIONING. I have a IQ for the game and enjoy working one-on-one with players hearing from them first hand where they need improvements and then working with them to build self-confidence in their abilities. My goal is to not only improve the player’s basketball ability but to also build confidence and to be a mentor on and off the court.
