Meet the AEF Academy Coaches: Guiding Youth Basketball in Omaha
At the helm of AEF Academy stands Owner, President, and Head Coach, Andy Beck. Coach Beck’s coaching journey commenced at the tender age of 15 when he began learning the ropes alongside his father due to a high school injury. Throughout his career, Coach Beck has mentored teams of varying ages and skill levels, ranging from 3rd graders to 11th graders. Presently, he imparts his wisdom to an average of 70 athletes each week. His passion extends beyond enhancing players’ skills; it encompasses equipping them with the tools to unlock their full potential, fostering inner confidence, and instilling values of sportsmanship and teamwork, both on and off the court.
At AEF Academy, our players are the priority, and we hold our coaches to the same standard. Our coaching staff undergoes rigorous training with Coach Beck before joining the AEF Coaching team. This training encompasses AEF-specific drills, skillsets, offensive and defensive team principles, and the art of positive communication. We place a strong emphasis on turning player or team mistakes into immediate learning opportunities and emphasize the profound significance of their role in shaping each player’s life.
Coach Beck often emphasizes, “If AEF is to deliver the product we promise, it starts with our coaches, who must embody ATTITUDE, EFFORT, and FOCUS.”
In the words of legendary coach John Wooden, “A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life.”
