We have been sending our children to Home Court for 6 1/2 years now and could not be happier with their programs. Not only do the kids learn to play basketball, they learn to be good teammates as well. The leaders are all postitive role models who put the emphasis on playing good defense and offense instead of being a ballhog. The programs are well organized, fun, keep kids busy, and build self esteem. Even when someone misbehaves, the leaders deal with it respectfully and are very encouraging that next time the child will make a good choice. We feel their programs are age appropriate and challenging for different skill levels. We highly recommend Home Court for anyone who loves basketball and wants to improve skills as well as anyone who just wants to give the sport a try and have fun.

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

exactly the kind of people I want my kids to turn out like.

Home Court has been a valuable resource for the kids in this community. A place where they can learn and grow in sportsmanship, team building, basketball fundamentals, as well as the finer aspects of playing the game. The coaches are always upbeat and fair and really try to work with the kids on a personal level. My son enjoys going and working at Home Court. Thank you, Dan Herman

My son has played basketball with other leagues, but he struggled to really learn the skills needed. Home Court gave him the individual attention and positive reinforcement he needed to develop these skills.

We are so happy with our choice to have our son play Basketball at Homecourt! The coaches were always positive but held the boys accountable for acting appropriately, the skills learned were above and beyond our expectations, and most importantly our son LOVED going to Homecourt. We felt the staff worked hard to keep teams competitive and helped boys with sportsmanship and did a great job of teaching them teamwork skills. At the 5th grade level in other programs all we heard from our friends were about "ball hogs" and frustrations, we didnt have any of that. YEA!! Homecourt is a Positive, Progressive Program where we watched our son grow in skill and basketball knowledge. A+++

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

Watching my son play basketball at Homecourt

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

Make it more affordable. We recommended it to a few friends but it was a bit too much for them. Also, a few open court times during the week or weekend would be nice - especially in the winter.

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

Seeing my son have a great time!

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

Knowledgeable, Positive and Good Role Models

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the way kids learn to play basketball! Learn teamwork, sportsmanship and positive attitudes about playing sports!

Ways to make it better...

The boys had time to practice with their teams before Weekend games started and set up a few plays. It would have helped with team chemistry in a few occasions

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Pricing, especially in this economy.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Great program!

My kids have been participating at Home Court for over 5 years and we continue to stay involved. I appreciate their approach to teaching character through sport. Not only are basketball skills and techniques taught at age-appropriate levels, but life skills such as teamwork, hard work, and positive focus are emphasized. It is comforting to know that no matter which coach is working with my child, I know he is being taught valuable lessons that he can use both on and off the basketball court. I have talked with several current and former staff members at Home Court, and it is evident that the leadership and training they receive prepares them for life as well. I am proud to be a member and participant of the Home Court family, and look forward to many more years with their programs for my children.

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

having my children participate in many team and individual training programs. I also coach a select level basketball team in the area and use the Home Court facility for practices.

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

their willingness to be a great community member, and their goal of teaching positive character through sport to so many youth and young adults.

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

friendly, enthusiastic about coaching, and proud to be part of the Home Court family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand to other locations and continue teaching basketball to youth and young adults, and offer assistance to other families with less financial means.

I have two children who participate in Home Court's programs. Beyond the basketball and life skills they receive at Home Court, my favorite thing is the atmosphere - every coach calls the parents and players by name, making Home Court a fun, familiar, comfortable place to be.

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

very friendly, knowledgible, and positive.

My daughter has participated in Home Court clinics since she was in 3rd Grade. She is now a 6th Grader, and this year with the help of the clinics successfully tried out for her local select team. In the years that she has attended Home Court I have found Pat and his coaching staff not only to be extremely professional in the way they coach the students but also to be very approachable. From day one my daughter was made to feel part of a team, with the coaching staff introducing themselves and the students getting to know one another. The coaching staff very skillfully make hard work fun, which keeps the concentration level of the students at a high and makes for improvement at every clinic. There are clinics for all levels of skill, experience and ability, and more often than not you will find the same students coming back year after year. Another nice aspect of Home Court is there communication with you. They let you know how your child is doing, they ask for feedback from the clinics so they can improve them and they let you know of programs that you might be interested in. I was recommended to attend Home Court by a friend and I hope when you read this that you will be too.

Awesome

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have organizations all over the state

We love Home Court! My daughter has participated in the program for the last 2 years, and my 6 year old son has just started the Fun Dees program. The coaches are so supportive, and the coach/player ratio is fantastic! The Home Court facility is beautiful, and they really run a first rate program. I appreciate the fact that the coaches not only teach basketball skills, but life skills as well.

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

watching my kids develop not only their basketball skills, but their leadership skills as well.

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

that that coaches hold the kids accountable for their behavior. The kids learn life lessons here along with basketball skills.

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

wonderful!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide more programs for the community, and reach out to more kids.

Home Court is a place where kids can develop basketball and life skills that are not necessarily taught or learned in a school setting. It has been a great experience for my oldest Daughter and I look forward to sending my other children to some of their programs. The coach to player ratio is great and it's a very well run organization with designs on bettering the future leaders and members of our community.

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

seeing amazing development of confidence and maturity in their volunteer coaches.

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

getting a chance to know the people that run this company and how committed they are to making it a great experience.

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

first class people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

continue to provide alternative ways of developing life skills through basketball. This place is not just for star athletes, but for kids looking to develop athletic skills in a safe and fun environment.

Home court is a jewel. Our community is lucky to have such a top notch facility right here in our backyard. The quality of the court, hoops, equipment, and not least of all the coaching, ...is as good as anything the Eastside has to offer. What sets Home Court apart, is the priority they place on building life skills. Whether your son or daughter, goes on the play high school, or college basketball...they will learn the tools that matter most to every coach, teacher, and employer. My son now plays for his high school basketball team, and Home Court has been instrumental in his progress as an athlete, as well as a young man. We've been pleased with the experience and plan on the continued use of Homecourt for our younger son as well.

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

Reflective of the culture established at Home Court
