D'Lesha Lloyd

I have coached and trained basketball players in Cyprus, Germany, Australia, France, Portugal and in Norway. I've found that with every team a consistent accomplishment was building mental toughness. This is needed in every profession. The goal is to not only prepare them for competitions on the court, but to also prepare them for the competitions in life.
