Coach Kelvin Dela Pena



Director of Athlete Development, Skills Programming and Strength & Conditioning

Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist


Kelvin Dela Peña is a former pro basketball athlete with expertise in assessing, correcting and programming for athletic development. Combining his years of experience in the game of basketball with his knowledge of what it takes for the human body to perform at its maximum capacity, he is able to enhance all aspects of basketball players capabilities and allow serious athletes to receive safe, quality coaching in order to mentally and physically equip them to compete at a higher level while they work towards maintaining long lasting careers should they want to pursue the sport professionally.  


Known for instilling the importance of fundamental work, attention to details, work ethic and character in every player mentored, Coach K encourages athletes to continue to seek their personal best and reach their full potential in all aspect of their lives.

"Positive life skills can be learned by participating in sport development programs. There are character building lessons youth learn through triumphs and defeats which will enhance their ability to react and cope with future matters. 

Most importantly I like to instill the will power to never give up regardless of current skill level and/or physical abilities.

How bad do you want it?  

Why are you doing this?

How big are your goals?

What drives you?

There is always someone else putting in more work, going to bed early, taking care of business in the class room and saying no to bad habits in order to reach a goal they have set for themselves. 

No excuses. No distractions.

Keep working toward a better version of you and sooner or later you WILL and CAN attain all you set your mind to."
