It has been an absolute pleasure working with Coach Shep and his team!
My son has been attending the Nike camp at Homewood High School for the past five (5) years. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Coach Shep and his team! It's a great camp ... well run with high quality and skilled coaches. My son has learned a lot over the years of attending and is so sad that he has now aged out! He LOVED his coach this year who was super encouraging and the Female Coach over his division (NBA) could not have been better or more encouraging, while at the same time challenging to push further. Super big thanks to Nike for seeing the need in the Birmingham area ... to Homewood High School for allowing the community access to their facilities ... and to Coach Shep for being an awesome leader, mentor and friend to my son!
