"Coach Chris was the perfect choice for my son!
There has been an incredible improvement in his offensive performance, his defensive ability, and a noticeable increase in basketball IQ.

At each session, Coach Chris takes the time to explain and break down different basketball techniques across all areas of the game, while creating a fun, encouraging environment for my son to grow and develop.

I highly recommend Coach Chris for all aspiring young ballers."

"Hey there! Just wanted to give a huge shoutout to Coach Chris at RISE Youth Basketball Academy. He is not just a coach; he's like the MVP of making basketball awesome and easy to understand :)

 

His vibe is so positive and encouraging; it feels like you're learning from a friend. I never thought I'd say this about a coach, but he's genuinely cool! What I love most is how he cares about more than just the game. He's all about teamwork, being disciplined, and pushing yourself.

If you get a chance to be coached by him, take it! Thanks, Coach Chris, for being the awesome mentor in the game of basketball!"
