    Coach Artis is an excellent coach who not only cares about improving basketball skills, but he also teaches them the importance of being a good team player and the importance of hard work both on and off the court. Artis always gives 100% to the kids. He also has great connections in the basketball area and gets the kids into lots of high competition tournaments and games.
