Freestyle Sports, LLC was established in 2015
When Jasper and Ayla visited Austin, Texas for the first time in 2012, they knew instantly that this is a city they want to live and grow old in. The native Dutchies were drawn to the weather, friendly people and amazing food. As a favor, they hosted basketball clinics for a few elementary schools in the area. This was met with an overwhelming response and the business idea that later become Freestyle Sports was born!
Back in The Netherlands, Jasper taught aspiring youth basketball coaches the ins and outs of the craft of coaching and he had his own basketball entertainment business, that focused on school clinics and basketball shows (think Harlem Globetrotters).
Ayla played professional basketball, winning multiple National titles and worked for the Olympic Network as a Talent Coordinator, working with young Olympians in over fifteen different sports.
Jasper and Ayla Eden live in Liberty Hill, Texas with their son Huxley and daughter Camryn. They also have a dog named Rowdy and a cat named Diego.
Coach Jasper has a Masters in Physical Education and is a USA Basketball Certified Youth Coach. He is a two time National Freestyle Basketball Champion and has over a decade of experience in running a sports business. Jasper teaches classes with an unmatched joy and passion.
