  TESTIMONIALS  
 


2021 Camp testimonials from parents
"Coach Caserio, This is Jacob Burr (Jack’s dad). I just wanted to shoot over this email, and tell you, your coaches, counselors, and everyone involved thank you so much for an incredible basketball camp. Your counselors went out of their way to help my son have fun, improve at basketball, and make him feel special. My wife and I were both blown away at the organization of the camp, and the ability to coach that many kids. All Jack has been talking about since we left yesterday, was how he can’t wait for next weeks camp. Once again, thank you so much for an outstanding group of counselors who truly care, and made for such a great experience.

PS. That meant a lot to myself, and especially Jack, that you went out of your guys way to sing Happy Birthday! He had been telling everyone about his birthday for the last few weeks, and it really made his day! We will see you guys next week!"
Jake

2019 Camp testimonials from parents

"Coach Caserio, My Grandson Carson went to your first week of summer basketball camp . Before going he was a little apprehensive . He was not feeling great about his skills. I want to thank you and your staff for giving my grandson and all the other campers such a positive input. Carson came away with such confidence about his basketball skills and he had a lot of great fun at the same time. We are looking forward for Carson to attend more of your summer camps in the future. Thank you again for a great Camp." 
George West

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 candy..." Bryan Scott

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
Jay, "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." Chip Pettit / Principal / Towne Meadows Elementary
