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 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.

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.

Home Court is by far the best! My son is in the 8th grade and has been doing programs at Home Court for 8 years. Home court takes each child where they are and brings them to the next level. They do it in a way that is respectful, positive and fun! I don't think I can say that about other sports programs we have done in the past. HOme court wants your child to get better and improve in their basketball skills, but more importantly they care about your son or daughter being a better person in society. My husband say our son is a better basketball player because of what he has learned at Home court over the years and I say he is a better person because of what he has learned at Home Court over the years. What is also impressive to me about Home Court is that my son has had some of the same coaches for the last 8 years. I think Pat, Rob , Danny and Stevie were there for my sons first Fun Dees program at HC when he was in the 1st grade. I think that says a lot about an organization! My son says he wants to be a coach at Home Court someday. I think it's because all the coaches are such great role models and he has always had a positive experience there. Kids leave Home Court happy and feeling good about themselves. We can't say enough about Home Court...we greatly appreciate all they have done for us over the years. Thank you Home Court for all you do! You sure make a difference.

I have only been part of Home Court for about 2 months, but enough to see the positive environment it provides the kids.

Home Court NW does a fantastic job of teaching the basic fundamentals of basketball, while keeping it fun for the kid's. The best part is the kid's are always moving & participating, as opposed to standing around.

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

Outstanding, knowledgeable teachers of the sport that always display a positive attitude.

My son has participated in a couple 3-on-3 tournaments and is currently involved in the winter league. It has been a great experience for him. We were frustrated with the NYBA the last couple years and he's not interested in select basketball, but he loves the game. The facilities are oustanding. The coaches are all very good and best of all consistent from the way they handle the kids to the things they teach. On top of all this, the price is reasonable.

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

consistenly friendly and genuinely enjoyed working with the kids.

My son did 2 camps with Home Court and both times, he had a wonderful experience. I was very pleased to see how the coaches were keeping the kids busy and interested the whole time and commanded respect. My son gained confidence and definitely improved his game after each camp. After his ball handling camp, his coach for his local team made him point guard because he really noticed that he was now the best at it!

I can't say enough about how much my 5th grader loved the time he spends at Home Court. He took one of the warm up classes in preparation for baskeball season with NYBA and it did wonders for his confidence and ball handling. The coaches all seem to be dedicated to the kids having fun and learning more about a sport that they all seem to love. The coaches made a point of figuring out each kid's strengths and weaknesses and worked with them accordingly. I watched several of the classes from their viewing area and all of the kids smiled and were being encouraged with positive reinforcement and a little good natured competition. I highly recommend this facility!!!!!

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

motivated to ensure the kids all learned something while having fun.
