My name is Coach Cory Heitz. I first placed a player into a prep school in 2008. Since then I have helped multiple players in reaching their dream of playing college basketball in the United States. In recent years, my experiences have included the following:
- Assistant Coach Lexington Catholic High School Boy’s Basketball Varsity Team 2014 – 2016 (Lexington, KY)
- Assistant Coach Gonzaga College High School Boy’s Basketball Varsity Team 2011 – 2013 (Washington D.C.)
- Assistant Coach Lexington Christian Academy Boy’s Basketball Varsity Team 2008 – 2011 (Lexington, KY)
- Head Coach Whistler Secondary School Boy’s Basketball Senior Team 2007 – 2008 (Whistler, British Columbia)
- Led high school league at John Calipari Basketball School 2009 – 2010
- Nike 2015 All-Taiwan Camp Kaoshiang, Taiwan
- Nike 2016 All-Taiwan Camp Taipei, Taiwan
I was last an Assistant Coach for the Varsity Boy’s Basketball Team at Lexington Catholic High School in Lexington, Kentucky. I joined my alma mater in a specialty role as the program’s college recruiting liaison. I have worked with the Knights’ coaching staff, players, and their families in developing a strategy to play basketball at the next level. I also helped run the 2015 and 2016 Nike Top 48 High School All Star camps in Taiwan.
Prior to this, I coached for two seasons at Gonzaga College High School in Washington DC under 2016 Gatorade National Coach of the Year, Steve Turner. My role with the team included post-player development, scouting, leadership training, and recruiting liaison. My first season the team was ranked as high as #12 in the nation by ESPN. The Nike Elite team appeared on ESPN television twice and defeated four nationally ranked teams. On these teams were three D.C. Gatorade Players of the Year: Nate Britt, Kris Jenkins, and Bryant Crawford.
