Greg’s coaching philosophy is that basketball is not only about learning the game but also using the circumstances that parallel the game to teach life lessons and prepare our athletes for what lies ahead. He strives to develop each individual to the best of his ability in an attempt to maximize his players’ ability. Understand that skill can only take you so far-thus strength, toughness, hard work, and preparation, should be easily identified in the character of a Jesuit team.

July 28, 2023: Both of my sons learned new skills and they enjoyed the counselors who were interactive with them. Some camps that are ran by high schoolers we have poor experiences of people being on cell phones and not seeming interested in the kids. This camp, the counselors were engaged with the kids which is really helpful for the amount of hours the kids are there.
August 1, 2022: My son came home everyday excited to tell us about his experiences. He had a blast and learned some new skills!
