    One of the best summer basketball camps.

    August 12: 2016: The camp was very well done and organized. It is probably one of the best summer basketball camps my son has attended.

    The entire coaching and coordinator staff accommodated his needs

    August 11, 2017: My son was recently diagnosed with a serious medical condition. The entire coaching and coordinator staff accommodated his needs and went above and beyond to ensure he had a great time. He never felt like he was a burden and as parents, knowing that we had many eyes and ears to help us with this issue was truly in the spirit of the African proverb "it takes a village to raise a child." Thanks to everyone, especially his individual coaches who always said to me, "I got this." He will definitely be back next year with a few friends. Last, I appreciated the disciplinary style of the coaches, they let the players know who was in charge.

    Loved it!

    August 4, 2018: My kid complains about everything but she didn’t have anything negative to say about this camp so you must have been something right! She did say that she felt like she got better but worried that she’d lose her skills by winter so hopefully we’ll be available to do the fall session with you so she continues to gain confidence.

    Enthusiastic Coaches

    August 12, 2018: I thought the camp was well organized. I interacted with the director, Joel Green, the most. I found him enthusiastic and caring. My son enjoyed his time there; he improved on some aspects of his game; the non-basketball workouts were an excellent part in that is showed the players there is more to be a good player/athlete then just making baskets. Being in shape is also very important.

    — Leigh M., Parent
