About Coach Galo

Roger Galo is One of the Most Accomplished College Basketball Players to Ever Step on the Court.

Coach Galo was a superstar player when he was in college: he boasted a stellar shooting percentage both from the field and at the free throw line.

After his own playing days were over, Coach Galo realized there is a way – a simple, non-complicated method – to dramatically improve a player’s shooting accuracy. And this method is teachable.

Coach Galo did the research and paid attention to the background of the shot – the science and mechanics of an accurate shot.  Based on what Coach Galo has done, he developed and now teaches The Galo System to all age groups of basketball players and coaches.
