It is a privilege and gift to be able to have our sons partcipate in Home Court programs with a top-notch coaching staff. Our sons have been coached by Pat Scott and Danny Monares, alongside an assistant coaching staff comprised of some of the finest teenagers in our community, interviewed and carefully selected by Pat Scott. They are expected to exhibit and maintain stellar role model standards in all categories of life (not just the game of basketball) for the elementary school students who register for Home Court programs. Our 8 year old son has participated in about 6 Home Court clinics & camps to date. The fun, enjoyable, creative clinic activities and the Home Court coaching philosophy has helped teach him important LiFE SKILLS using the game of basketball as the object lessons and analogies, so to speak, in every Home Court session.

As a parent i have both my boys involved in a number of sports. By far the complete experience Home Court provides is superior to any training program or organized league i have been involved with. I know basketball pretty well and have played, volunteer coached and been exposed to many programs with a number of different philosophies. Home Court has broken the game down into a set of instructions, drills, coaching style, and consistent format with contstant reinforecment that builds solid well rounded basketball players! My oldest boy Shane who is 13 years of age, has been part of the Home Court program for the last 4 years. Shane has learning disabilities that makes it very difficult for him to hear and process multiple instructions. I never told the coaches or the Program Director about this as i wanted Shane to learn to adapt to his challenges on his own. I have been so impressed with his improvement and progress and have watched him execute on the basketball court in games the concepts that have been taught during training sessions. This is a true testiment to the program and my belief that it is one of the best around. Coaches coach players and consistently help them with positive reinforcement so even a kid like Shane can achieve success and build his confidence in his abilities. It goes beyond basketball skills as every coach in the program has taught Shane that repetition and hard work lead to good things!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have watched my 13 year old boy learn how to play basketball the right way, unselfish, structured, team approach to winning!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to expand the program to other areas. Provide a face for homecourt in organized leagues but not at the expense of the program.

My son has benefited from the great coaching staff at Homecourt. The player to coach ratio is always small and they are very positive with the kids. They make it fun while still developing great basketball skills. Highly recommend their programs!

It was our son's first year to join Home Court, but He had a great time throughout the season. The corches have a lot of passon toward basketball and they are very enthusiastic and friendly to kids, and that makes a difference. We'd like to put him back again and also strongly recommend that you join Home Court if you think about any basketball league to play.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very enthusiastic and have nurturing atomosphere not only for teaching basketball to kids but loving kids themselves.

I am so pleased with the program at Home Court. I had been so upset by the inconsistency at other basketball programs that I was blown away by Home Courts program. My son was able to learn the fundamentals of the game and learn to actually play the game as well. I saw huge growth throughout the season because of the constant and consistent coaching that he received. They are very well organized and not overpriced. It was a great investment for my son! He loved it and would go all the time if he could.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their love of basketball and their deep desire to teach all kids how to succeed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wonderful! Positive and encouraging.

Our son has participated in classes at Home Court NW for a couple of years now. We have always had nothing but positive experiences with this organization. The staff to student ratio is excellent. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and excel at working with kids. They teach the kids teamwork, team responsibility, and general sportsmanship. I've always seen a huge increase in my son's basketball skills as a result of attending the classes. Class time is used effectively and efficiently, staff are always prepared and start class on time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I like how they teach the kids to be respectful to the instructors. They teach them to make eye contact when spoken to. They also teach the kids that by not paying attention and goofing off, they are not spending their parents tuition money wisely.

Homecourt is a great organization for kids who love basketball. Their coaches and organizers run wonderful programs aimed at developing basketball skills. There are so many coaches who help out that you really get personal attention to your child. I would definitely recommend Homecourt to anyone.

I took two of my boys to Homecourt for league and they both had a great time. The staff there is awsome and although there is a wide range in ability they do a good job with all levels of hids. My kids both had a great experience.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very knowledgable, had very positive personalities, and pushed to kids to be the best they could be.
