Charles Foster Jr, “Chuck”
Charles “Chuck” Foster Jr, is a native resident of Central Texas . Chucks brings 15 years of playing experience and 13 years of teaching the game of basketball to players of all ages to the PAC. Chuck had a prolific prep career in Austin that saw him help lead teams to district, city, state and national appearances that either resulted in championships or runner up finishes. As a result of his dedication to the game of basketball, Chuck was awarded with numerous individual accolades such as First Team All-District, Central Texas, Region, and State. Furthermore, Chuck was recognized as a top 15 State of Texas recruit, McDonalds All American Nominee and participant in the Faith 7 Texas Vs Oklahoma All American game in 2004. Furthermore, he was able to take his talents to Lamar University, Garden City Community College and Temple College. Chuck is proud of his accomplishments but being able to give back to young student athletes is more fulfilling than any individual accolade he has received.
Chucks’ strength in basketball training is being able to see and communicate the game of basketball through the eyes of the student athlete. This allows him to design a training program tailored to the players current skill level and understanding of the game, that will warrant improvements at their pace. This allows the athlete to take instruction more efficiently, and creates a fun training environment. Chuck specializes in all areas of individual skill development such as shooting, dribbling, passing and defense. Chuck accredits his teaching style to his coaches and mentors that have molded his style of communicating the game to all players, regardless of skill level.
Chucks overall goal for each student athlete is for them to have fun learning and playing basketball. It’s a joy to see each player improve on their skill, but it is more fulfilling when the athlete can translate it to an actual game, at school during gym and recess, or just in the driveway playing against family.
Chuck is a father of one, Elijah (10) and is a graduate of the Urban and Regional Planning program at Texas State University-San Marcos. Also, he is a member of many community organizations such as the KLRU Community Advisory Board, Leadership Austin and the Austin Parks Foundation, where he is the official park adopter for Springwoods Park, located on Anderson Mill rd.
