Basketball Testimonials

“I want to thank Coach Dan for his remarkable job with the boys last season. The final basketball game proved what a multi-talented coach he is — from the three point shot play he drew up for Cole when we were down 5 with less than a minute to play — to the exquisite poise he showed in the last moments of a tough game. By the end it was obvious he was doing more than coaching basketball; he had been coaching character — all season long.”

“Your Rising Star Basketball Coach Dan and Coach Burns were just amazing, really. Their knowledge of the game and how they handled the kids was perfect. Really, I can’t say enough about them and the program. I just wish you could make it into a year round AAU team for each age, even if they get their butts whipped.” world of fastpitch softball. Thanks to all the Koa coaches and staff for all of your guidance and support.”

“Our son has had a wonderful experience in the basketball program at Koa. The coaches are professional, smart, caring, and demonstrate good sportsmanship. Coach E reaches out to the players to help them individually and as a group. The coaches focus on performance today but also help prepare them for the future because they want to see them reach their goals. I have been very happy with the Koa organization as well. They are organized and communicate well with the parents. If a last minute change in the practice venue occurs you know they will work hard to find an alternate court for practice. We look forward to more seasons with Koa!”

“My son is loving the select basketball team. When he got home from practice last night, he said it was ‚Äúthe best practice ever, times 10‚Äù. As I think I told you earlier, after one of the first practices he told me that he had never learned as much as he had from that one practice. Obviously, something is working, and the coach is doing a great job!”
