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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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+++

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
