HARD2GUARD is an individual instructional program run by James Cormier, Assistant Coach & Teacher at Northfield Mount Hermon School. NMH has the most prestigious combination of basketball and academics program in the country. NMH has had plenty of success in recent years, winning the National Championship in 2013 and the New England Championship in 2012.

James wears many hats at NMH, but specializes in recruiting and player development. Having grown up the son of a Division I coach who spent more than 20 years at the college level, as well as 12 years in the NBA, James has always been a student of the game and understands what it takes to succeed at the highest of levels.

As a player, James excelled at the guard position in high school, prep school, and as a full-scholarship player at Division II Le Moyne College. He traces his success back to his intensive workouts and skill development regimens that touch on every aspect of the game. Over the years, James has borrowed from coaches at every level of the game to develop new, innovative drills and routines that translate to success in game situations. His fluid knowledge enables him to cater his program to individuals and their specific skill sets, positions, needs, and goals.

James knows firsthand the mental and physical challenges that serious basketball players at all levels will encounter, and he created HARD2GUARD as a way to share his knowledge and help others achieve their potential. In addition to his drill work, James is a motivational leader whose mission goes beyond the development of strong, skilled athletes to good human beings on and off the floor.
