Rudy has been with Elite camps since 2005. He studied Elementary Education at the University of Maine at Machias where he was also named Rookie of the Year for the basketball team. Rudy continued his athletic career and education at Seneca College, where he majored in Business Administration. Rudy then signed a contract in Germany to play professional basketball, and also signed a contract with And1 Mix Tape Tour as opposing team player. Rudy also fulfilled his goal of playing professional basketball in Italy, but it was in England while playing in the EBL that Rudy developed a passion for teaching basketball to children.
Rudy retired from his professional basketball career in 2007 to help establish the Elite Advanced Basketball Academy (EABA), a European influenced training program designed to transform the way athletes are trained in Canada. Rudy is on a never ending quest to search for and learn new ways to teach skill development. Rudy searches so he can bring back the best information to the athletes he coaches and place them in a better position to succeed. Most recently recently he attended the Alan Stein Stronger Team Huddle where he learned the details of the Stronger Team Training System - a world-leading basketball-specific strength and conditioning system. Rudy is excited to put those practices into place with our athletes and to compliment the skill development we already do with them!
