About Us

DSO Sports Staff

Relying on the experiences and knowledge obtained from coaching and playing at the collegiate and professional level, we strive develop each athlete to have the work ethic and attitude needed to be successful on the court.  By replicating the exact drills, exercises and experiences that made us successful, we ensure that each member of the program gains the skills necessary to compete effectively against other teams and their peers.

DSO Sports is under new management and organizing body.  We hope that the immediate changes are long lasting and the previous pain points are minimized effectively and efficiently.  

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns and/or feedback.  We are excited to learn about you, just as much as you are excited to learn about us!
