Carlos Macian
Born and raised in Spain, which arguably hosts the second best basketball league in the world, Carlos Macián grew up soaking up the teachings of both the European and American coaches: From the Balkans’ school of “discipline with creativity and vv” to the grit & grind of former soviet basketball; from classical teachings of College greats such as Dean Smith and John Wooden to the revolution of small ball in modern-day NBA; from the psychology of zen master Phil Jackson to the advanced statistics of Brad Stevens. You can learn from all of them to create your own particular basketball flavor. Prior to coming to the USA, Carlos Macián developed his coaching career in Spain for 15 years. He coached Middle School, High School and College basketball at various competitive levels. He also achieved the certification to coach professional teams in Spain. Upon arriving to America two years ago, coach Carlos started coaching AAU and NJB in the South Bay. This is his second year coaching High School girls at Woodside, which is tremendously exciting! He’s a firm believer in basketball IQ and teamwork over athleticism as a recipe for success and he is committed to developing players to their fullest potential… all of which must happen while having fun! Married and with three teenage children, coach Carlos enjoys reading, writing and traveling around the world. (he also enjoys watching all sorts of sports while comfortably sitting in the couch, but don’t tell that to anybody!)
