What Others Say About The Book

I ran across your book online as I was putting together my basketball camp. Your book has been AMAZING. I cant say it enough how much it has helped. Thanks for writing !
--Greg E. Hill 

I just want to thank you for publishing "How to Run a Basketball Camp" it has been very helpful to me. I am running the 1st annual Miami's Elite Basketball Camp in Miami, Fl. Your book has guided me into the right path. I love the game of basketball and also helping children on the community, and this is a great way for me to give back and help kids develop their skills. I was worried that I would fail but after reading your book I already have succeeded in getting everything set up from my dates, location and the biggest help was getting my sponsor letter. Again I would like to thank you!!
--Eddie Pena, Miami's Elite Basketball Camp
