Before becoming a full-time skills coach, Jordan enjoyed a successful high school career, accumulating a 100-21 record as a four-year varsity starter and playing for a state championship in 2003. After high school, he attended Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois and was a member of another very successful program. In his time there, the Vikings won five conference championships and advanced to the NCAA Tournament twice, going as far as the Sweet 16 in 2005-06.
After spending six years in banking (coaching on the side for over three of those years), Jordan decided to follow his true passion of helping basketball players reach their full potential on and off the court. Working with players of all ages and skill levels and in numerous settings, including but not limited to, individual, small group, team, camp/clinic sessions, he focuses on not only improving the on-court skill of his players but also on using basketball as a vehicle to teach lessons and values that players can use to find success long after the ball stops bouncing.
As a player, Jordan Delp was one of the best competitors and hardest workers we have had during my tenure here at Augustana. It comes as no surprise that he has become the regions most respected and accomplished trainer of basketball skills. He teaches the fundamentals and finer points of the game as well as anyone in the business, and he helps young men mature in ways that will last long after their basketball careers end.

I very much appreciate and respect the work that Coach Delp did with my high school team. I believe he was a big part of the success we had. He has a great ability to teach the fundamentals of the game from footwork to form. He is a very good teacher of the game and has a great rapport with the kids. There’s no doubt our girls became better offensively from their work with Coach Delp. I look forward to having Jordan work with my team and my own kids, individually.

Jordan's workouts really helped our team. His knowledge of how to build upon skills is phenomenal. The intense drills he put our guys through really laid the foundation for what we were able to accomplish. Jordan really individualized workouts to meet the varying skill levels of our athletes. The support Jordan gave our guys, during workouts and throughout the season, really set him apart.

Jordan Delp teaches skill development as well as any coach I have been associated with. His instruction is very detailed and to the point for each skill that is being taught. Jordan has the ability to demonstrate the drills that are being taught so they are best understood. Jordan’s ability to connect with each individual player that he trains allows for each athlete to feel comfortable and confident as they improve their skill set.
