WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

UPDATED FOR 2015-16 SEASON

Every year we ask for feedback from basketball families via an annual survey.  This year we received a record 130 responses!  Thank you for taking the time to provide us with valuable feedback.  Here are some of the highlights from the 2015-16 feedback:

  • 93% of respondents indicated their child reasonably developed as a basketball player
  • 93% of respondents said their child had fun
  • 97% stated that their coach set reasonable expectations/objectives at the beginning of the year;  90% of respondents said that those expectations/objectives were met
  • 99% indicated that their child received a fair amount of playing time

We strive to achieve a 100% positive response rate to all questions.  We will continue to improve and hold ourselves to that standard.  While we received feedback for areas of improvement in several areas, common themes arose in the areas of increasing offseason training programs, limiting late evening practice times, and making sure we are teaching the kids basic skills (as the foundation of long-term sucess).
