Players and Parents Rave About
Advantage Basketball Camps

Advantage Basketball Camps receives many testimonial letters from basketball players and parents each year, hundreds since our founding in 1986, conducting our youth sports training camps. Advantage Basketball Camps runs one of the best basketball camps in the country, it is only natural that we would receive these letters of encouragement and appreciation.

Don't just take our word for it, take a look at what our students and parents have to say:

"Thank you O’ so very much for spending your time with me and my teammates at this camp. This is by far the best Basketball camp I have ever been to. My dribbling skills have improved greatly (more than any coach has ever taught me) and I like how everything is organized, it is easy to follow. I am amazed with how much better I have gotten over the past week; it was like what I might have been able to do in two whole sessions, done in one week. The drills were hard but very helpful and I can still socialize with my teammates while dribbling. You and your counselors are really good at helping me out too. I can really tell you know what you are doing, and I greatly appreciate your help. Out of all the many years I have played Basketball and have watched different teams, I have never seen a group of kids improve as quickly as the players at this camp. I was amazed at how much better my brother got at this camp and now I know why he enjoyed it and improved so much. I also think it is really cool of you guys to do this for kids in Washington. Plus your camp must be popular cause I met people from Canada. So to sum this letter up I will say Thank you so much!"

"Dear Mick,

...Well first off you have to know that I came into this camp thinking that it would be like all the other camps, I wouldn’t learn anything…I was wrong! This camp has brought more to my game than I ever thought possible, and I wanted to thank you for that. If it wasn’t for the things that you and the counselors have taught me, I might have quit Basketball. But I now understand where my priorities are. (Eat, Sleep, Play Basketball!) Well, I just had to let you know that I admire and appreciate everything you have done, and are doing for this camp."



"Both of my daughters, Christine and Lauren, are finishing up their week of camp at ECC today. This is Christine’s second year and Lauren's first year. We have tried many Basketball camps and this is Christine’s favorite. She encouraged Lauren to attend this summer, and she too enjoys your camp. It is fun and they learn new and reinforce old Basketball skills. They are serious about Basketball and it is nice to find a camp where they feel like their time is spent well. Thank you!!! We look forward to next year’s camp."

"Dear Mic,

I have been playing Basketball for several years now and this is the first time I have been coached on ball handling skills. Wow, I never imagined that I could dribble the ball behind my back.

A second reason I like the camp is that my teammates attended also and when we start our season in the fall, we will be able to handle the ball better as a team.

Last but not least, last year I injured my knee and the doctor told me that I had to stretch before exercising. I really appreciated the fact that we all took time to do it.

All in all, I think that this basketball camp has been a really good experience for me."

Thank you so much,
Abby Adelshiem



... My son ... came to your week long ball handling camp at Juanita High School this summer, and he learned a ton. I think it made the difference in his making the select team he’s on."

Just a quick note of appreciation for your work at last weeks Ball Handling Camp, Rachel has show incredible improvement in her skills and more confidence in her moves."

Thank you.


"Dear Coach Mick,

I am very thankful that you are a part of my life. You have taught me all those Ball Handling skills which have helped me become a stronger point guard. I would have never come this far if it weren’t for you. Thank you so much!

Many of us have been through the youth sports wars with these teens and siblings and in all honesty this was the best ran event many of us have been involved with. You really are a credit to, and a shining example of what a youth sports activity should/could be. Keep up the good work!

Maybe our paths will cross again, maybe they won’t, and either way I think I will remember you for quite some time."

With Respect,
Jim Blodgett


"Hello Michael,

I just wanted to send you a note for the wonderful job you did during the week my kids and I attended your clinic. My daughter participated in three clinics this summer and even though she was held back by a water skiing injury, she got more out of your camp than the other two combined. The staff there is wonderful and I was so impressed with the honesty."
