Coach Mike was awesome. My kids had a blast with him. He made the session fun and they learned a lot.

Drills will push you to another level, knows the drills to work on the things you want to work on, overall had a great work out and can’t wait to have more sessions

Coach Michael is a very good coach. Professional and passionate. Knows what your needs are. Will definitely continue train with him and I strongly recommend him to everyone(all level) who wants to play basketball!

Mike has truly been an asset in my fitness development. He takes his time with you and offers suggestions that help you shade a couple more pounds. I wanted to get stronger and more tone and Mike did just that. Truly amazing at what he does to reach to fitness goals
Coach Mike is professional, responsive, inspiring and just an overall outstanding person. Mike offers elite training for players not just offensively, but defensively as well. He has a unique basketball mind which allows him to teach concepts that can be applied in all levels and ages of basketball. He also has great knowledge in terms of fitness, and the mental aspect to the game allowing him to help build a complete player. If you are looking for someone to improve your kid’s game while at the same further their passion for the sport, I highly recommend Coach Mike
Kids were in camp summer 2021 again. The same as last year, they had so much fun. This year coach Mike Cruickshank was the favourite one. I have never seen them so excited to go every day. Also, electronic devices were not allowed at all, which was great for kids to socialize. Keep up good work!
