    Coach McCants has helped my son drastically improve his basketball skills. He is more confident in his ability to dribble and shoot the ball. His classmates can see the progress in his basketball skills. Coach McCants is very knowledgeable and broke steps into clear explanations for my son to understand what he needs to do to become a better basketball player. I would recommend Coach McCants to anyone!

    Great program! Wonderful instruction from start to finish! Program included ball handling, strength training, shooting techniques and much more! Ed is very passionate about basketball and that passion and dedication is expressed to each of his players. This program has a place for athletes of all ages and gives them the opportunities needed to advance to a higher level of play. Ed's approach keeps the athletes engaged mentally and physically. He also knows how to push athletes at their individual levels for personal growth. Highly reccomend Ed and his programs!
