2018 Camp testimonials from parents
"My 9 year old and 12 year old attended
the skills basketball camp at Gilbert High this summer. They both
loved it and wanted to go back the following week if we weren't
going out of town. They learned a bunch of skills from the coaches
and Gilbert players and especially liked the team competition for
2015 Camp testimonials from parents
"Yesterday afternoon and at dinner
all the boys could talk about was camp this week. When we went to
the park to shoot hoops they were excited to show me what they
learned. They loved your players who were helping during camp,
saying how fun, personable and genuine they are. They loved being
around you and your coaching staff. Thank-you for starting their
summer off in the perfect manner...they can't wait to return to the
Tigers court. Thanks again for taking care of my boys.."
2014 Camp testimonials from parents
"I am thoroughly impressed with how well the Tiger Basketball Camp is
run. My son has had the best time the last 2 weeks and he was pretty
upset this morning that this would be his last day for the summer.
He has many little friends there that played football and soccer
together, and now they are planning their basketball team. Holt has
had me practice with him each night the new skills that he has
learned at camp. I was able to make it over there one day for a
little bit and was impressed with your players being able to work
with the little kids. I know a few of them from Greenfield and they
have matured into outstanding young men that these kids can look up
to. I think you created a Tiger fan, and I thank you for all the
hard work that running the camp must take."
