My name is Marcus Mooney I am a Army Vet and grew up in Compton Ca I  have been a Nevada resident for the last 17 years I have been coaching and training players for the last 15 years from high school jv and varsity as well as AAU and ABA .I started using basketball as a deturant for gang activity when I was a teen director at a local community center  I found the the young men stopped fighting and started working with each other and  that when I fell in love with coaching, at that time I decided to Start (AMP) Athletic Mentoring Program which grew into a platform for Young men to go to college and stay focused on there academic in stead of what these street had for them.I seen a number of players with great skills when i would go to the local gyms  and found alot of these men had college eligibility left and start encouraging them to finish and not to sell them self short or feel they were done ,alot of them took my advise we went into the gym and I start training them not only physically but mentally getting them ready for the next level .My love for my family basketball and my community makes me who I am.
