Testimonals

Marissa and I would once again like to thank you for the opportunity to play in Sunday's Showcase event. It was extremely impressive to see the amount of interest that the event generated from the college coaches. We have already heard from a coach which is very exciting and rewarding for a young athlete.I thought the format was fantastic. I like the fact that they played a little 3 vs 3 to warm up and then moved right into full court 5 vs 5. That allows kids to demonstrate their skills in game conditions. We have been to other events where they start with some skills, then move into 1vs1 then 2v2 and it seems to take more time and true game skills are not demonstrated.  - Steve Gattuso

 

Fall Showcase - "Thanks - what a great day! Well run, the girls never had a moment of distraction. As a parent and former coach, I am well pleased with the days event. Just wanted to say well done and Kylee and I look forward to more of the "Hoop Mountain" events in the years to come." -Peter Julia

 

"We wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the overnight camp experience you provided in Pomfret on July 7th-10th. It was Diana's first sleepaway experience, and she thoroughly enjoyed it and felt like she learned a great deal. We're thrilled that she has come home completely motivated to practice as well and with real things to practice from the drills you did to core strengthening/agility exercises. Thank you very much and we look forward to your camps in the future!" -Kristen

 

“My daughter's first overnight camp experience was at Hoop Mountain in CT. It was incredible!!! I can't think of a better experience for her. Not only did she walk away with improved basketball skills, she gained a better knowledge of the game as well as improved basketball IQ. She slept with her basketball for weeks after camp! Thank you Hoop Mountain for keeping her safe and improving her game!” - A Very Happy NH Mom

 

“I wanted to let you know that your camp is outstanding from a recruiting standpoint. Beyond just a recruiting camp, Hoop Mountain develops players by expanding their skill and understanding of the game. I wish more AAU programs would not leave the region and send their players to your camp because it is a wonderful environment to evaluate talent during a vital recruiting time.” - Division II Head Coach (name omitted)

 

“We want to thank you for a great Hoop Mountain experience. My daughter continues to rave about the teaching as well as the number of college coaches that attended during the week.” - Name omitted for NCAA compliance reasons

 

"I just wanted to tell you that I was very impressed with the showcase yesterday. My daughter Allie enjoyed it. My husband and I both attended and thought it was run very efficiently and we were especially impressed with the input of most of the coaches that you had coaching the different teams. Their words of encouragement and their little bits of advice to help the girls (no pun intended)  showcase their abilities to what the college coaches like to see was great and helpful. We had not attended a showcase since my son played 6+ years ago, so we were unsure of what to expect. So I just wanted to take a quick minute to let you know how happy we were with our experience yesterday." - Nancy Hartford

 

"I am sending an email to thank you again for a great 5 days at camp. Emily had an awesome time! We were talking about the week on the way home and I asked her how your camp compared with the other camp she attended last year. She said there is no comparison- your camp is far more intense and she learned “way more” with you than she did at Point Guard College. She told me you “know a ton about basketball and did a great job sharing this with the girls.” From a parent perspective, your camp was extremely well organized. Emily said the food was good ( which is important to the girls!) and they were busy with basketball until 9:00 every night." - Michelle Melick

 

"I wanted to write to you to thank you and the Hoop Mountain organization for nominating me as a possible McDonald All-American. I have really enjoyed playing at the Hoop Mountain showcases. I have some friends that are younger and play basketball that I have suggested that they sign up for the events as they would get so much out of it as I did. I have met so many coaches and it has opened so many doors for my future. I try and work very hard at everything I do, in the classroom and especially on the court as that is my passion. I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for what I would say is helping me with my goals for the future." -Carlee Smith

 

"My daughter Allyson attended your middle school development camp in Promfret last week. This was her first experience with an overnight camp. She attended with a couple of girls from her travel team and they had the best time. Since she has been home she has not stopped talking about how much she has learned and how great the coaches were. I can't thank you enough for making her first experience away from home so enjoyable. She cannot wait until next year." - Brenda Glode
