Client Reviews

Coach Mary, is the best . Very hands on and explains drills clearly.

Coach Mary Chris is a GREAT motivator! My 7th grade grand-daughter has loved working with her. I can see improvements on the basketball court and a new confidence in her game. Coach Mary Chris pushes her to do her best and has matched her coaching style to Evie's learning style. It's just the best! I missed her game last night, but she made her first basket! She was thrilled and we are so proud of her.
