Matthew Perry

” My son, Jordan, has had the privilege to train with some of the best basketball skill trainers in the country. As a parent, I wanted to make sure he had every opportunity to play at the next level. With this thought in mind, We sought out the services of Tamar Slay to help improve on the little things that are often overlooked & not emphasized. Tamar didn’t disappoint.

He challenged Jordan to be conscientious of his footwork, balance, explosiveness off the dribble, & shot preparation. These skills along with a honest approach have helped him improve his scoring & overall skill level. He is currently averaging 32 ppg & playing with a greater sense of confidence.

Tamar’s approach & innovative drills keep Jordan progressing & working to reach his maximum potential. I would strongly recommend or encourage any parent to not hesitate & contact Tamar Slay Basketball Services to help their child reach their full potential.” - Matthew Perry, Morgan County Head Highschool Basketball Coach

Jamie Osygus

“Tamar Slay Basketball” also means “Training, Skills & Balance.” Tamar balances the training of basketball with students’ skill level and age. The work is hard and intense, but results in ball handling, shooting and stamina is the reward. There is also the “balance” of motivational talks at the end of workouts.

As a parent, those few minutes are just as important as any basketball skill. Tamar has some incredible life experiences and is well aware of the strong impact he can have by sharing them. “ - Jamie Osygus, Parent of Stefan, 11 years old

Greg White

” Tamar is incredibly unique in so many ways. His ability to play basketball is well documented with his HALL Of FAME INDUCTION at Marshall University and his lengthy pro career in the NBA and in Europe. But, what really stands out to me is his CHARACTER as a man and VALUES as a family man. He is a true role model for young people and has the ability to influence young players to work hard towards their goals and become truly committed to doing special things thru basketball to become a very successful human being. If you are looking for positive influence with your child look no further than Tamar. He is the total package as a teacher and coach. His experience and credentials give him credibility with all young players. He has been on the highest stage in high school, college and in the NBA. He is a professional in everything he does. Just a special, special person that is committed to sharing his knowledge with others “ - Greg White, Head Basketball Coach – Marshall University, 1996–2003
