As much as Shake True Hoops has helped me with my basketball skills, it is the lessons I’ve learned to apply off the court, that I will retain for my entire life. Whether it be in school or at work, my work ethic learned through Shake True Hoops gets me to the top.

It’s great to see kids develop in front of your eyes over the course of the summer. We teach the kids not only basketball skills but also life lessons that help them grow. The students are not forced to participate and they are allowed the choice to have fun. In my experience every child enjoys their time and wants to continue playing throughout the camp. Children make new friends and learn to play as a team during their time here.
