Mark Cascio is the Boys’ Head Varsity Coach at Catholic High School in Baton Rogue, Louisiana. As a head coach, Mark’s teams have won seven district titles, appeared in five final fours, and captured a state championship in 2012. Coach Cascio was a head coach at the age of 21 and is the youngest coach to capture a state title in Louisiana at the age of 26. 

Mark started Courtside Consulting in 2019 to continue fostering his love of the game by sharing with colleagues in the coaching profession.  Cascio partners with coaches to provide professional advice, first class resources, and a system to improve, refine and apply new concepts in any phase of the game. His uptempo style of offense blends concepts to create pace, spacing, shooting, and attacking. This style of play allows players freedom to use their individual skills to create plays for themselves or their teammates in a fun, fast paced system. However, Mark and Courtside Consulting are committed to implementing any system that suits their client’s style and personnel.
