  1. There’s no walking on the gym floor! The kids are always engaged, moving and learning. My son has been involved in a number of the park programs which didn’t provide the level of skill training and conditioning he receives at Elevate NEXT. I would recommend Elevate NEXT to anyone with a daughter or son who wants to improve their basketball skills!

  2. The coaches are very knowledgeable, patient and keep the kids focused!

  3. Affordable. The weekly reminder emails regarding recommendations for weekday practice of skills learned are very helpful.

  4. Attention to detail with each child.

  5. Interaction with the kids holding them accountable for actions such as mistakes and tardiness to the camp, amongst many other things!

  6. The 1 on 1 attention from not 1 but all of the coaches. The main coach was very personal. He called my son by his name and he sincerely showed interest and empathy. In the 8 years my son has played basketball, I have never witnessed his eagerness to learn. I am so happy and excited for future sessions!

  7. The individual attention that each child receives is really nice. I like that the staff takes the time get to know each child and takes the time to work on his/her individual needs. The time schedule of the programs are nice as well as the location.

    “My child has a newfound love for the sport of basketball and after coming to your camp for two weeks, he’s more engaged in the sport, asking more questions. He’s only going to the third grade, but as a parent who grew up going to basketball camps, I can tell the difference in just babysitting the kids while rolling out some basketballs and actually working on some skills, and you guys are working these kids. Thanks a bunch, I’ve referred one of my co-workers, whos son is in high school for the weekend workouts, and 10 minutes into it he was sold!! In a city where we lack a lot of quality good coaches, it’s great to see a program working kids properly. The only feedback is if you could also supply along with the report card, a list of drills the kids could work on. The list could be timed drills also and you could use that also for your regular Saturday kids, they would fill it out everyday and on Saturday you could check their progress. I find it hard to locate drills for my child since he's so young."

    “We really appreciate the attention that has been given to our son and the level of confidence not just in the fundamentals of basketball but also in academics. We appreciate you all stressing academics with our son which is very important part of advancing in all of life’s skills. A child’s confidence is a gateway to a successful child in all of life’s endeavors. Zaire has really enjoyed and appreciates all that you all have taught him in the Saturday [Skills] Academy and in the Summer Training Camp. He said to his dad and I, ‘I really enjoyed myself, and I got my new game face on.’ Again, I would like to say THANK YOU!!!!"

    “Bryan and Derek had a blast at the camp. They love the interaction with each one of you. It is amazing to see how much they improved in two weeks. Thank you so much for running such a great camp!"

    “My 9 year old son loved your camp! He attended both weeks. Normally, his camps have some academic component; however the discipline, attention to detail, and focus you require of your campers are skills he will definitely use in and out of school. I also noticed his physical stamina had improved after only a couple of days. The ability of your coaches to give kids one-on-one attention, if necessary to ensure they understand and can execute the skills being taught is something you don’t get at NORD, Carrolton Booster or Lakeview sports programs, and my son has tried them all! The lunch option was great!.”

    "Thanks Coach Ben! I have seen a change in my son's confidence since he began training with y’all as well as his skill level. You have taught him more than just how to handle the ball. The life skills that you and Coach Sky teach are just as important as the basketball skills for him."

    “Elevate has been instrumental in my son finding success in Jesuit High School's basketball program.  Through skills developed by Elevate NEXT, my son evolved from a  good playground Rec player to a bench player on the eighth grade team to making the Junior Varsity as a Freshman to finally a confident Junior in the Blue Jay Program.  Elevate NEXT has helped him in his primary role as a shooter, but has also worked hard with him on his ball handling and defense.  My son's hard work and Elevate NEXT's coaching have made him into the successful athlete he is today."

    "I love everything about this place. The coaches are not only experienced and knowledgable but do a great job at bringing that higher level of learning down to a level where young kids could understand. My son has learned a lot in the few sessions he attended and most of all he loves it!!!"

    “We love Elevate Next! Great instruction and drills instead of just shooting and playing around. Teaches kids to be students of the game and encourages practice and hard work. My boys attend every chance they get."
