    Character Building

    I loved the character building and talks and beginning and end of day.

    Worked hard

    My son has never worked so hard at a camp, and I thought for sure he would not want to repeat it, but on the contrary he would have lived there. The coaching staff was a perfect blend of intense, kind, strong, dedicated, and tough. He thoroughly enjoyed his experience and we will definitely be back next year, hopefully some of the staff will too!!

    Best camp

    At this camp you not only learn about your goals in your sport, you learn about your goals in life.

    Learned so much

    This is the best camp I've ever been to. The staff is great, the coaches are first rate. It is just an amazing environment! The life lessons they teach you will stick forever. The life lessons are by far more important than anything they could have taught me basketball wise.

    Very Encouraging!

    I really loved how it was much more than basketball skills training. I loved how we were encouraged to focus on life skills and behaviors.

    — AJ S. Camper Complete Player

    More than basketball

    I appreciated the overall philosophy and the vision that was shared with the kids, particularly the idea of finding their "true north." I liked that there was an emphasis on goal-setting and being thankful and applying these ideas not just on the basketball court but also in life.  I feel like the camp is about more than just basketball, which I really like.  So, with regard to awards that are given at the end of the week, I think it's important to base awards on who met the tenets of the philosophy rather than who the best players happen to be.

    • 5/5.

    There was no AC in the gym and kids had to play outside in the heat of the day. Coaching staff could be more engaging and at least provide some written down end-of-week evaluation and words of encouragement. There was a focus on learning to listen and fundamental drills.
