“Even though Coach Gil is a master basketball player with high-level skills, he doesn’t look down on kids who are beginners.  He is patient, encouraging, and very nice,” remarked Perry.  “I’ve learned a lot even in one session about how to handle the ball, improving shooting skills and balance.  I highly recommend the camp to kids who want to have fun and get fit with a fabulous coach!”
