    Your passion and drive are contagious!

    July 22, 2014: This camp was better than any I've attended. Lance was organized. You could tell he put a lot of time and work into the camp. Lance loves basketball and it showed every day on the court when he worked with me and the other campers. All the coaches were outstanding each had their own quality and Curtis made me feel important. It's not often you get to work with professional athletes that bring what they know to little kids like us. Not only did they take the time to teach us, but they did it with such passion. Prior to this camp, I was discouraged, but Lance and Curtis showed me so many qualities I had and could have to becoming a better all around player! They rekindled a fire in my spirit and made me want to work that much harder to achieve my goals. I'm grateful I attended this camp and left the camp with so much more than just an interest in basketball. My self-esteem and passion have returned. Thank you for having this camp and THANK YOU to all the coaches your passion and drive are contagious!

    July 15, 2016: Coaches at the camp were excellent. They were fun and did great with the kids. They made the camp for my camp extremely fun but at the same time intense. I think it kept the kids having fun and also let them know that basketball can be fun while being competitive as well!

    The coach stressed good sportsmanship and being humble!

    July 23, 2018: My daughter loved the camp. As a parent I think one of my favorite parts were the words I heard spoken when I showed up for pick up. The coach who was speaking often stressed good sportsmanship, being humble, and being gracious for the opportunities they were given. These are all great qualities/values that I want to see instilled in my daughter. Keep up the great work!
