About NC Spurs

About Us


My name is Jeffrey Petroski and I am fourteen years old. I have been training with Coach Maher since my fifth grade year when I was eleven years old. From the first time I trained with Coach Maher, I have not only seen constant improvement in my game, but rapid improvement as well. I am not going to lie, none of Coach Maher’s sessions are easy, but it is all worth it at the end of the day. Coach Maher has also opened many doors for me. Coach Maher has gotten me invites to tryouts I would have never had before. Next year I will be playing with the Carolina Rail Hawks Academy team. Other than myself I give almost all credit to Coach Maher for not only getting me prepared physically and mentally, but also being there at the tryouts and getting me the invites to these tryouts. Without Coach Maher, I do not believe I would be as good a player as I am today. I believe Coach Maher will help me in the college recruiting stage as I continue to train with him.

NC Spurs are relatively recently established in the Fayetteville area. Our coaching team, however, have over 80 years experience coaching in several countries around the world.

Our whole focus is improving the individual player. Winning, of course, has importance but it is not of the utmost importance to our coaching philosophy. During the academy years, producing quality players who are technically proficient, in order to play and enjoy the game the right way is of the utmost importance to us. Success for the NC Spurs academy is seeing progression in players that we have coached. Successful progression includes, playing the game correctly, having fun doing so and having major positive impacts on their follow on teams. We look forward to working with your children and making them better players.
