Client Reviews

Playing AAU and High school basketball, I was in search of a higher skill level of training for my daughter. I am happy to report my daughter thoroughly enjoyed training with Coach Harper! The training session was both challenging and fundamentally sound. He was engaging and encouraging with my teenager and she responded well which is no easy task! I highly recommend Coach Harper for any player looking to elevate their game. My kid left the gym ready to schedule her next session!

My sons loved working with Coach Jonathan!
He focused on teaching my boys skills and infused the session with fun, too!! We can’t wait for our next session! Thanks Coach! 😊

Coach Jonathan did an excellent job with son, I usually force my son to work on his game; after one session he was already asking me to come back. Coach Jonathan patience, knowledge, and techniques are like no other and top notch. I would recommend Coach Jonathan to anyone who is looking to get better at the game of basketball. Book him and I promise you won’t regret it.

Patient and knowledgeable coach, helped my son improve his game almost immediately.

I am very impressed with Coach Harper! He is very patient, knowledgeable, supportive, encouraging, and informative! He is very down to earth and relates well to my son in a way that is effective for learning. Coach Harper actively participates as my son is learning and shows him step by step motions as he learns, reiterating each move to ensure proper techniques. He has also motivated my other son to come out of his comfort zone and get in the game!
