Steve Dagostino is considered one of the top Development Coaches in the country.  His client list includes NBA Players and Top Division 1 Players. His extensive and successful professional background may have kickstarted the idea of becoming a coach, but it's the passion he feels every day for helping the entire basketball community, from coach to trainer to parent to player, that really fuels him. 


As a player, Dags was an undersized PG (5’6” 120lb) in high school.  He was a 2x All-American and Academic All-American at The College of Saint Rose (NCAA D2) and a 5 Year European Pro, playing in Italy, Spain, Hungary, UK, Iceland.




Dags owns and operates a successful local training company that serves over 1,000 players a year.  Individually, he has multiple NBA clients that have played for the Hawks, Blazers, Jazz, Kings, Nets, and Timberwolves.  He is a Court Coach for USA Basketball’s Junior National Team that meets with top high school players 3x a year.  Lastly, he runs camps and clinics around the country.  He has worked in NY, Florida, Ohio, Oklahoma, Vermont, and Massachusetts.

In 7th Grade, Steve was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata.  This is an autoimmune disorder, Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system attacks hair follicles, and may be brought on by severe stress. 

Having to grow his hair out to cover bald patches led to insecurity.  But it was the same long hair that became his signature and allowed him to stand out from his basketball peers and be noticed. 


Steve is now married with 4 children and the adversity and experiences in his life on and off the court have led to great perspective that is widely needed in the crazy culture of basketball.
