LOCKDOWN ACADEMY - BOYS ACADEMY DIRECTOR
Coach Mampe grew up in New Lenox, IL and played basketball and baseball at Lincoln-Way Central High School. He then attended North Central College and played on the basketball team for 3 years earning a trip to the Sweet 16 and Final 4 in consecutive years.
Coach Mampe began his coaching career with Chicago LockDown and The Franchise as a trainer and coach for over 4 years. Within this time he also coached with York Township Dukes freshman during the 2015-2016 season.
Sam graduated from North Central College with a degree in Sport Management. He has grown to excel in teaching the fundamentals to all ages, especially the younger ages with his great communication tactics.
As a father of five successful basketball playing boys, Joe Niego understands the importance of properly developing players fundamentally at a young age. Laying the foundation of fundamental skills strongly outweighs the lure of distance travel opportunities for this age. Chicago LockDown Academy provides a positive, instructional, fun, competitive and safe environment for your players to grow. Foundational skills will be a constant focus along with activities to promote a love of the game! All players will participate in competitive games appropriate for each player's skill level. At this level, it is critical that players focus on getting better and developing a positive feel and love for the game.
