Engelland’s prestigious list of success stories began with the NBA’s all-time leading three-point shooter, Steve Kerr. Known for improving players’ shooting skills, Engelland has been enlisted to help the jumpers of such superstars as Grant Hill and the WNBA’s Chamique Holdsclaw.
The former ball boy for legendary coach John Wooden’s 1975 NCAA Champion UCLA team went on to lead the Los Angeles City in scoring in 1979 for Pacific Palisades High School. He then attended Duke University where he played for coaching greats Bill Foster and Mike Krzyzewski. Known for his outside shooting, Engelland capped his collegiate career by scoring over 1,000 points as captain of the ’82-83 Blue Devils.
Upon graduation from Duke in 1983, Engelland began his nine-year pro basketball odyssey. Globetrotting first to the Philippines, he was a member of the San Miguel Team which captured the 1985 Jones Cup Championship. Following two seasons of international competition, Engelland returned to North America where he played in All-Star games for the Topeka Sizzlers of the Continental Basketball Association and the Calgary 88’s of the World Basketball League.
He began his coaching career in 1993 with the introduction of his basketball camps “Chip Shots.” These camps helped players of all ages perfect their shooting techniques.
