We appreciate all of your positive word of mouth advertising we have received over the years and respect the caliber of player who you recommend us to. After all, our families are the ones that are out there, have experienced other programs, and know the difference.

" Come out and experience the Basketball Paradise difference with our passionate, professional coaching staff and our up-tempo style of play. Hardnosed, man to man team defense. No zones, no plays on offense. Space the floor, teach motion and movement principles, and empower the player to learn to make good decisions. At Basketball Paradise, we believe in a system that develops the playmaker. "
" Our son's passion for the game of basketball had us looking for an AAU program that would further his development . As an eighth grader he tried out with a handful of programs . Most of them seem to care more about numbers of teams than developing the player . Luckily for us we found Paradise Basketball . Their coaching style is unique in that player development is most important . Our son has trained and played for Paradise ever since . Every year has been a noticeable improvement and he is now a varsity player for his high school. Thanks coach Ryan and your staff for all you have done ! "
" Basketball Paradise in the simplest terms does things the correct way. Having been part of this program for 5 years, I have observed my son’s development in all the key area of importance to me. The travel basketball philosophy promoted and taught by Basketball Paradise has been transferred directly to my son’s high school team, and has been a key indicator in separating him as a leader among his high school teammates that play travel basketball in other programs. The effort and thought that Paradise gives to the athletes in this community is beyond rare. This is a high quality, high character program that is being ran by a high quality, high character family.

" I cannot thank you and Basketball Paradise enough for the opportunity you have given our son Chase. I always had the feeling that he had much more potential in his game. However, what you have accomplished, over a very short period of time, with him is outstanding. Your program instills hard work, team play, and responsibility. These things don’t just help these young men in the game of basketball but will forever be with them in the game of life. We are very proud of Chase’s hard work and are eager to say that your program has been the difference. Thank you for all you do. "
" Our two sons have participated in numerous programs with their organization over the past three years. We are extremely pleased with their coaches in that they all teach and stress the importance of the fundamentals of the game. As a result, we have enjoyed watching their overall game improve. "
" I have 2 sons playing for Basketball Paradise, they've started to play as early as 3rd grade. Now Josh is in 6th grade and Joey is in 4th grade, we are so happy for the improvement they've shown inside and outside the court. Basketball Paradise does an outstanding job of challenging players at the fundamental level. They truly allow the players to learn and expand their game at a higher level. The Coaches' enthusiasm, knowledge and high energy style are motivation enough to make any player work harder. We can't thank enough Basketball Paradise for all the work they've done with our kids. Thank you. "
" When our son started coming to Paradise in 3rd grade, he had a lot of work to do on his ball handling. He had always been the big guy down low. I would play 1 on 1 with him on the driveway, and could steal the ball from him whenever I wanted to. After one year of being part of the Paradise family, I am shocked at how much he has improved. I recently played some 1 on 1 with him on the driveway, after a year at Paradise, and I'm a little embarrassed to say that stealing the ball from my 4th grader is quite challenging for me now, and he grins from ear to ear every time he puts a move on me. He loves his coaches at Paradise and has made a lot of great new friends. When he walks in the gym there, I can tell he feels like he is at home. "
" My son is entering his fourth winter season with Basketball Paradise (he has also played fall & spring seasons for the past several years as his other sport schedules have allowed). The Paradise program has provided him everything I had hoped for and then some. The professional coaching staff all carry a deep understanding of the game of basketball. Things like offensive spacing & flow, team defense, and the basic fundamentals of the game are always the focus. In my experience, many of these things are overlooked at other programs. More than anything else, however, Basketball Paradise has taught my son how to "compete", which I believe will serve him well with everything he does both on and off the court. "
" Basketball Paradise has been a great find for us to help develop our son's ability as a player and more importantly as a person. Playing college athletics, we know when we have a great program. The coaching staff knows the game and we appreciate their style of coaching and coaching philosophy. They teach the game at an advance level which puts the players in a more competitive position when they move on to high school or college basketball. They demand a level of excellence that helps shape the young players to do things right, not only on the court but also in life. We are very proud to be part of the Basketball Paradise family and highly recommend this program and their coaches. "
" Our son had belonged to other basketball clubs and the programs did not have a coordinated system to develop the players and thus the experience varied greatly from coach to coach. When we started coming to Basketball Paradise, we had our son play in the controlled scrimmages and we were so pleased with the coaching, which was demanding, but more importantly, it was consistent and systematic. The boys were actually learning the game. We then had our son participate in skills classes and joined one of the Paradise teams. We have been so pleased with the individual attention afforded to all the players and the emphasis on skill development and basketball knowledge. In just one year, we have seen our teams surpass others in skills, basketball IQ, and hustle. We feel the lessons learned at Basketball Paradise in regards to developing a passion in life, commitment and effort toward a goal, handling adversity and mistakes, and working effectively with teammates are skills our son will use for the rest of his life.
