EuroStar

ABOUT THE CLUB:  Competitive basketball club with a focus on basketball fundamentals preparing kids for the next level. Euro Star has a family feel environment which emphasizes the benefits sports, in particular basketball, can offer with regards character development, life skills, all while creating life long relationships.

ABOUT THE COACHES:   My basketball experience as an Irish International, collegiate and professional player, has exposed me to many different coaches. Some whom are current NBA coaches, overseas professional coaches, current D1,D3 college coaches and my favourite of all, my dad-Jerome Westbrooks, arguably Ireland’s most successful and respected schools coach. My laid back personality with my intense competitive spirit brings a coaching style that puts kids first while pushing them and holding them accountable. Our motto at Euro Star is that the main reason to play the game of basketball is because it’s “Fun”, we also believe it is more fun to “Win” than lose, and hard work along with consistent dedication is the only way to achieve this. No shortcuts and no excuses. My experience as a Mental Health Counselor at Childrens Hospital has also influenced my coaching style and has helped with creating rapport with all my players.
