Jeff Fryer
Executive Director, FBA
Former high school varsity and college coach, former college and professional player.

Jeff Fryer is a native Southern Californian and graduated from Corona Del Mar High School, where he was a stand out competitor in the basketball program.

After graduating from CDMHS, he earned a Division I Basketball Scholarship to play for the Lions of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles.

After earning his bachelors degree in Business Administration from LMU he played professional basketball with the Houston Rockets of the NBA in summer 1990 and also in Europe for many years.

Jeff Fryer is back home coaching basketball after a long playing career.

After finishing college at Loyola Marymont with a degree in Business Administration in 1990, Jeff played professionally in the United States and also overseas for almost 10 years. He played in such countries as Germany, Spain, Australia, and Canada. Jeff still holds the NCAA record of 11 three-point field goals in an NCAA Tournament Game against the University of Michigan.

After coaching at the High School and College levels, Jeff decided to start the "Jeff Fryer Basketball Academy" in 2003, in his hometown of Newport Beach, CA. He runs camps, holds clinics, and gives private lessons to kids of all ages.

His strength is working with kids, where having fun is a priority in training.

The goal is to improve, enabling each player to become the best he/she can be by incorporating respect, discipline, and correcting quickly each mistake a player makes in training so they can improve. With this basketball project, Jeff would like to give back to the youth what he has learned along the way to being the best he could be.
