Coach Thomas and the HoopGrind staff combine those cherished traits all parents seek for their aspiring athletes: positive, affirming leadership, great communication skills and high level of technical competence. I trust both my boys to his influence."
We spent this summer venturing into the world of AAU basketball for my 7th grade son. I do believe our experience is probably not what you find among most teams. We had a coach who made all the difference. Coach Ryan Thomas led our team of boys with class, with passion and with a sound understanding of competitive basketball. My son learned more in the season than he has in any other season and that is because Coach Thomas led that charge. He knows the game, he can teach the game and he cares about the character of the player. He taught more than just the game of basketball. He taught skill development, he taught strategy and he taught communication and teamwork. I highly recommend playing for Coach Thomas.
Coach Thomas and HoopGrind staff, You are excellent leaders and you did a wonderful job this past season. Jonathan really enjoyed it. I have very fond memories of learning sports when I was Jonathan's age, and I have no doubt that Jonathan will store the fundamentals as well as the valuable experiences you taught him in his memory bank for years to come.
My son Jake has attended some HoopGrind sessions and he can honestly say that it was the toughest workout he ever had on the basketball court. With that said...the drills they worked on were designed to teach fundamentals while also elevating his skill level and game time strategy. He loved the sessions and truly learned a lot from Coach Thomas and staff.
