We take great pride in the knowledge that we try to pass on to the young players. Ohio Sports Plus is truly invested in the long term development of the players.
"Toni and Ohio Sports Plus were instrumental in my development as a player. There is no doubt that the details Toni teaches and film work she does helped me overachieve in the Atlantic 10. Intentional player development sets super successful players apart from their peers. There is a huge different between “being in the gym” and getting better. Toni makes sure you get better.
It seems like I’m a bit removed from playing at the college level or at the professional level but Toni’s impact on my coaching career has remained present. The cues and details that Toni used (and still uses) with me as a player are the same that I use now as an assistant coach in the Big East.
As a player Toni teaches in a way that makes you focus, which also makes you learn and understand. This is a separator at every single level of basketball. " - Jessica Jenkins, Assistant Women's Basketball Coach at Providence University, former player at St. Bonaventure.
