What People Are Saying About Our Camps
"Just wanted to thank you guys again for the great camp in Libertyville over the weekend with Mr. Kelbick. My son's footwork became much more fluid by the end of the camp that we are excited to see the benefits during the upcoming season."
Beto Elizondo, Parent
"It was refreshing to see & participate in a camp that focuses on fundamentals, fundamentals & more fundamentals. With so much focus on winning within youth sports today, this is an area that is often left behind within the development with kids."
Paul Sorce, Parent
This is my son's second Breakthrough Basketball camp and he has only had good things to say both times. First, he had fun. He liked the scrimmages and felt the competition was good. Second, he definitely felt that he got useful instruction/lessons - some things that he already knew that Chris reinforced and some things that were new. Also, he felt that he learned some useful variations on some moves that he was already using, which he was very happy about. Both times, as a parent, I've been impressed with how well organized your camps are and the respectful/serious approach you take to working with the kids. Definitely worth the cost and the time!
