Say Hello to Coach Brown

Raeshara Brown is a graduate of the University of Missouri with a degree in Environmental Science with emphasis in Exercise and Nutritional Fitness.

As a basketball player, she is the All-Time leader in steals for the Tigers, top 10 in the Big 12 , top 5 in assists and top 30 in scoring in Mizzou history. She is a former professional basketball player, assistant coach at Missouri, and Special Assistant and Player Development at SMU.

Today, Coach Brown is a private basketball trainer with a goal “to develop not only a complete player but a complete person.” She founded ASAP… A Step Above Player Development–Advanced Athlete Development Cultivated Through Confidence Nurturing because she saw a lack of fundamentals and confidence in the grassroots development in younger players.

Knowing that there is an abundance of skilled coaches and trainers available, and kids will be successful in sports if they put in the time and practice, Coach Rae takes a holistic approach to prepare players to be successful in and outside of their sport. Every player’s time in the sport will end someday and they will be faced with new life challenges. Coach Rae teaches students to feel their value and know what it takes to be successful.

Students receive expert, high level coaching in the skill sets of basketball as well as the mental stability, confidence, and the ability to channel frustrations into success. Coach Rae knows that kids respond best to coaching to their physical and emotional strengths and not their weaknesses. Challenged and even frustrations are opportunities to learn and grow.

Coach Rae was asked “How can parents promote a positive mind set in their children? She said “first and foremost talk to your kids and discuss their goals for playing sports. Let them know you support them and let them have a voice and, as kids like to be heard and seen, let them know that their words and feelings matter. Parents should try to remember what it was like being a kid, and growth and maturity comes over time and goals change.

Coach Ray was also asked what she would like to say directly to the student athletes.

“Dream big, be bold and don’t be afraid to ask for help. In life, remember that you are a unique individual and don’t worry about what the person next to you thinks. Fight for your beliefs and understand the value of compromising as giving in is not giving up. If thing don’t work out the way you want, you did not fail. If you tried your best and made progress in your life.”

And finally, know those around you love you. Keep your eyes open to something new and always do everything the right way and be the best version of yourself.
