Client Reviews

Coach Ben was amazing. My son really learned a lot from him.. He ran him through drills to help with all
aspects of offense and he really worked him hard - just what he needed. Coach Ben is patient with the player and
genuinely wants to see the player succeed - that was very important to me as a parent.
I would highly recommend Coach Ben.

I am writing this to express my gratitude for our sessions with you (2013). 7th grade basketball started on Monday and Josh is playing with confidence he did not have prior to working with you. He has been informed that he has made the "A" team and will be a fill-in for the "B" team. The coach believes that Josh is the best defensive player he has. Along with his confidence in his shot, Mark was pleasantly surprised with his improvement and preparation for the season. Hope all is well and thank you again.” -Craige A Hrkal
