Don’t Take Our Word For It
Recently I had the opportunity to guest coach at The Cleveland Basketball School. I love watching Coach Paul and Head Trainer Robbie in action as they create a positive learning environment. Things that The Cleveland Basketball School does well that makes them a great program are:
*Every drill is purposeful and practical. Every drill they do I can see basketball players actual use in a game.
*Drills are explained! So many programs just tell their athletes to “do this because I said so”. Not CBS, every drill is broken down into the “why we want you to do it this way is because”. This is such an important piece of athletics, making sure the athletes LEARN, not mindlessly have them do drills.
*Teamwork, sportsmanship, and fun are focused on from start to finish. These three attributes go great together and are the foundation of CBS. I’ve never seen as many young people clap and encourage each other as I have at CBS.
To guest coach at such a great program is truly an honor. I always look forward to spending time at CBS.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE CLEVELAND BASKETBALL SCHOOL FOR COMING DOWN TO STEUBENVILLE THIS SUMMER. COACH PAUL AND TRAINER ROBBIE BROUGHT AN ORIGINAL BLEND OF BALL HANDLING, PASSING, AND SHOOTING DRILLS THAT HAD OUR KIDS CHALLENGED AND LASER FOCUSED THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE THREE HOUR WORKOUT. THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO THE CREATIVITY OF THE DRILLS OF TRAINER ROBBIE. SINCE THEIR CLINIC, OUR PLAYERS HAVE INCORPORATED SOME OF THESE DRILLS INTO THEIR OWN WORKOUTS AND WE HAVE NOTICED A DIFFERENCE IN OUR SKILLS. HARD TO IMAGINE THE BENEFIT OUR PLAYERS WOULD HAVE IF WE HAD ACCESS TO CBS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.
I would like to thank you for the training and skills you taught my son while attending Cleveland Basketball School. It wasn’t only form, technique and learning how to dribble a ball, the life lessons learned as discipline, dedication and hard work will follow him through life and as a father I can’t put a price on the importance of building character.
I just started playing rec basketball last year in 7th grade and have high hopes of making my 8th grade middle school team. I have been attending Cleveland Basketball School for about a month now and have already made noticeable improvements in my ball handling skills. I’m pretty sure that a few more months with Coach Paul and Coach Robbie will give me a good chance to make my school team this year. Even though the classes are two hours of non-stop hard work, I really enjoy them and everyone there respects and encourages each other.

TEAM, LET`S WELCOME ROBBIE AND PAUL HAUGHT
THEY HAVE A WONDERFUL BASKETBALL PROGRAM OUT OF CLEVELAND. PAUL BRINGS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM, AND EXPERIENCE TO US. ROBBIE IS OUR YOUNGEST SKILL COACH, AND I AM EXCITED TO GROW WITH THEM. THEIR PROGRAM IS ONE OF THE BEST ON THE EAST COAST. THEIR PROGRAM GETS RESULTS AND I HAVE HEARD NOTHING BUT POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM EVERYONE! WELCOME ABOARD!
KEEP GETTING AFTER IT TEAM!
Dear Paul and Robbie,
I just want to say thanks from all of Belize basketball enthusiasts. What a thrill it was for me to see the Belize high school all star team go through a great skill training session where the players never lost focus for the full hour you and Robbie put them through. On our eleven day trip to the King`s James Classic all of the guys commented on how INSPIRING YOU GUYS MAKE WORKING ON YOUR GAME FUN. THEY CAN`T WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO RETURN TO BELIZE.
Hey this is Alan Stein with Stronger Team and DeMatha Catholic Basketball, if you’re a player or coach anywhere you have to check out the Cleveland Basketball School, it’s absolutely the best.
Dear Paul, I just want to let you know what an incredible job you and Robbie did on your visit to Belize. As the Director of Basketball for the country of Belize,one of my jobs is to improve skill development throughout the country and what the Cleveland Basketball School did in those 5 days was incredible. The players are still talking about how intense, organized and challenging the drills were. They were amazed at Robbies ballhandling skills and how hard he worked at them. Once again thanks for everything. You guys opened eyes for Belize Basketball.
I’ve been knowing Robbie and his family for 15 years now and I have never met anyone who has the drive and passion to help players succeed not only in basketball but in life as well. The Cleveland Basketball School has so much to offer a kid trying to develop basketball skills and a good mindset. Robbie Haught, who is the head trainer of the Cleveland Basketball School, is a driven young man thriving to be successful and help players out along the way. I played at Kent State for four years and I’ve had the chance to work out with many different coaches and trainers to try and shape my game. I have never worked with anyone whose dribbling circuits can top the depth or intensity of the drills that Robbie put me through. Some of the things he teaches and can do with the ball is simply amazing and not to mention he didn’t give me much rest in between sets making me focus even harder as fatigue started to set in. Since working with Robbie my dribbling skills have gone to another level and he has taken my game to newer heights. Another reason why I recommend Robbie to any young basketball player out there is his work ethic. There would be days that fatigue was getting the best of me and working on my game was the last thing on my mind. Robbie would make me feel good about getting better in the gym and that motivation is something a player needs moving forward with their career. I recommend the Cleveland Basketball School to players of all ages and all levels who have the ambition of becoming a better basketball player.”
They have a wonderful basketball program out of Cleveland. Paul brings a wealth of basketball knowledge, wisdom ,and experience to us. Robbie is our YOUNGEST skill coach, and I am excited to grow with them. Their program is one of the Best on the East Coast. Their program gets results and I have heard nothing but positive feedback from everyone!
I have been in or around basketball my entire life. Having grown up in Indiana, some of my fondest childhood memories are of my Dad sharing the stories of the teams, coaches, and players that made “Hoosier Hysteria.” God was the most important person in our household, followed closely by Bob Knight. When I played, I participated in camps, clinics, and classes, but nothing I ever did or witnessed prepared me for what I saw Robbie put my 15 year old son through. Because my son attends an out-of-state boarding school my first opportunity to enroll him in Robbie’s dribbling class was during my son’s most recent Spring Break. It was only an hour class, but the drills he learned are ones he has taken back to school with him because he recognized that doing what Robbie taught him was the only way he is going to get better. My son’s school’s Headmaster (who incidentally was captain of his Yale basketball squad) was so impressed with the drills my son brought back that the he is requiring the entire team to do them.
Now, my son looks forward to coming back home for summer break for more than the obvious reason of school being completed; he wants to get back in Robbie’s gym. As a parent (who funds my son’s dribbling classes), I especially appreciate that Robbie has a well thought out plan for every class and there is no downtime. The entire hour is focused as it should be; on excellence.
I have attended many high profile camps over the past three years (Kevin Durant, LeBron James, NBA top 100, All American Camp) and have the privilege of working out with many great people. I thought that those workouts would be the best that I have ever had, until I went to see Robbie (Cleveland Basketball School). It was more intense and a much harder workout than I ever imagined. The dribbling skills were incredible and he never seemed to let us rest, he was constantly teaching. I believe that he is one of the best “dribbling teacher” that I have ever worked with. Besides working hard every minute we also had fun. I would highly recommend all basketball players of all ages to sign up for his classes, it is well worth it. I hope that these skills help me over the next four years while I am playing in College.
The following is my true assessment of Cleveland Basketball School……
In March of 2009 my 9 year old 4th grade daughter Kasey tells me she wants to play basketball (having never played before). I knew nothing about the sport of basketball but did my best to work with her daily. After a month she wanted to try out for an AAU team. She did not make the team, but was determined to not let it happen again. I did some research on the internet and stumbled on Cleveland Basketball School. Desperate for help we signed up and made the bi-weekly 1.5 hour trip to Brecksville for the May 2009 session. After each session her confidence grew. We then did the June session. This past season we played on a local travelling 5th grade team, Kasey was the teams best ball handler and a big part of the teams overall success. This after less than a year of playing basketball. This spring she made her AAU team and was always chosen by her coach to demonstrate each drill at practice. I give all the credit to Cleveland Basketball School for all the drills and teaching of fundamentals. Coach Haught really got through to her. Does my daughter still have alot to learn? You better believe it. One thing I can guarantee is where she will be learning it.
In April of 2010 Kasey and my 7 year old daughter Kyla both attended Robbie Haughts Ball Handling Development Class. Robbie is a young man, but he has a gift of teaching basketball. Put a ball in his hand and he is all business. The girls just loved the 4 classes they had with him. They are always dribbling a ball trying to get as good as Robbie. The whole Cleveland Basketball School experience has been worth way more than any amount of money I have spent. THANK YOU
The most visible change in today’s game is ball handling skills across all positions. This is often what differentiates playing time. Robbie Haught began at an early age and has refined his ball handling through high school, and understands how to teach these skills to players of all ages and abilities. Our 3 children, boys and girls, have become more competitive players, whether Elite level aau or local rec ball, by participating in CBS’ fundamental training. The specialized ball handling instruction is a worthwhile extension of CBS’ core program.
I have been taking my boys to the Cleveland Basketball School now for 3 years. The training has been outstanding and something that I simply could not find elsewhere. One of Robbie Haught’s strongest assets is his ability to handle the ball. Robbie has an unusual talent when it comes to ball handling and he communicates great with the kids. If you’re goal is to improve your child’s ball handling skills, you’ve found the right place, and definitely the right trainer!
Our son (8) and daughters (10,11) have participated in Cleveland Basketball School for the past year. The instruction has been top shelf with an appropriate emphasis on fundamentals. Apart from the consistent quality instruction, what sets the CBS program apart is the holistic approach to development of physical, mental, and emotional aspects. The program teaches life skills….focus, effort, attitude…which help build a strong foundation for academics and other activities. And while the program is excellent preparation for those desiring to play at an elite level, Paul Haught is committed to creating a great developmental experience for all participants, irrespective of age or basketball talent. It is great to see the improved confidence that the program nurtures for children of all abilities. As well, the teaching emphais on footwork and agility, provides participants with an important base which is transferable to other sports. CBS has been a very positive experience for our children in many ways and one which we highly recommend.
This summer a dozen of our players participated in Cleveland Basketball Schools program. Simply put, it made a huge differerence in their ball handling skiils, passing. shooting and confidence. Coach Haught and his staff do an excellent job in detailed instruction and use a number of innovative drills to build skills. I was also impressed with the positive way instruction is provided. Our players loved it and every one of them improved. After seeing one session at CBS I recommended it to every player in our program. We could not have asked for better results.
I just wanted to thank you. Sarah was excited (and tired) when she left your lesson. It was the first time that I heard her say that she wished she would have been attending your lessons since she was a freshman! She loved the pace, the drills and how it wasn’t just shooting a bunch of shots from a bunch of spots on the floor. The mix of dribbling, shooting, and putting together different skills was what she raved about.
She wants to do your other camps and activities you have scheduled through October too. This is the most excited I have seen her about basketball since she started high school! She came out of the gym yesterday beaming!
Paul, I would like to enter my son again for the workouts at Pinnacle, Starting August if there is room. Just a note, my son’s game has risen to a next level. He has become one of the lead scorers on his summer league team. Your workouts are fantastic. He was just a point guard, and not a top ball handler at that. Now he has become a point / 2 guard and gives other teams fits. He pushes the ball up the floor like a Middle school kid. I can’t wait to see what the August session will do to his fall league play. My son is now 10 and soon to be 11 entering 5th grade this year. It is amazing what one session with you has done for him.
Thanks and see you soon!
You have a great thing going, Paul, something not easily found elsewhere.
Lauren asks-talks about your classes all the time. Congrats you made a kid fall in love with the game and more importantly working on the fundamentals of the game!
I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how my son improved from last year. He had his first game last night and did very well. His skills were sharp and he was a leader out on the court. He ended up scoring 18 out of the 35 points in the game. He was very happy with his performance. The hard work and time was well spent at your school and it shows. We’ll see you in March.
We can’t thank you enough for being such a big part of our off season training program. My players were truly blown away by the variety and intensity of your non-stop drills. Making hard work fun seems to be what you and the other trainers at Cleveland Basketball School excel at. Please keep up the good work of teaching athletes to be better basketball players. This mission of yours will improve the entire sporting community we cherish.
I would like to take a minute and tell you how impressed I am with your program. My husband and I have sent Kaneon to many basketball camps in the past, but none have been as impressive as yours. As a mother, paralegal, and psychology major; I am most impressed with your desire to teach the children matters of “class”. I truly appreciate your motivational hand outs. This is a great way to reinforce what we parents try so hard to teach our children. For those children who’s parents do not teach them proper behavioral skills, you are providing them with an introduction to concepts that may help them in the future. It’s nice to see a coach who cares about his student’s behavioral abilities just as much as their physical abilities. I truly appreciate that!
Having been a varsity assistant at the high school level for the past fifteen years, it’s too late if a player doesn’t have the necessary skills by his junior year. I have seen a lot of basketball trainers over the years. Paul’s workouts are for the serious basketball player that wants to take his/her game to another level. I have personally seen the improvement from kids involved in his program from year to year. While it is hard work, he makes it fun and provides the added part of motivating the kids to want to become the best they can be. Paul’s program has produced some of the most talented and skilled players in the Greater Cleveland area.
Paul, one of the things you are doing is developing mental conditioning. In order for players to be conditioned for sustained concentration, for an entire game, is to do it in practice. Coach Wooden was a master at this and his practices, because they were so well planned with no wasted minute, demanded sustained concentration. If I, as a player, let up one second, I’d miss something important, be it a transition to another drill, important fundamental to work on, or something else.
Good job. I love the lunch box.
A special thanks to: The Cleveland Basketball School, one of the finest training programs that I have ever seen. This group uses the most up-to-date basketball techniques with emphasis on skill development and player improvement.
Her coach moved her to the three because of her ball handling and confidence…She continued to work on all the drills your camp introduced to her literally everyday.
Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks that camp was well worth the price…awesome job
The Cleveland Basketball School’s skill development program has had a very positive influence on our son. The program’s coaches bring good energy, sound knowledge and an all important ethical approach to skills development.
You have done the right thing and the kids that have stuck with your AAU program the longest will be the ones who have the better chance to succeed in life. I was asked numerous times of why I drive all the way to Brecksville every winter for 7 years since they were in 2nd and 3rd grade. My answer was because it was the best environment and program for my kids.
You’ve done a great job Paul. My family thanks you!
Since attending the school, my daughter Jackie’s skills have improved. She attributes this to the excellent training she has received from you, Coach Boyko. Keep up the good work.
I would like to thank Paul from Cleveland basketball School for getting me ready for my college game. He worked with me on every aspect of my game, from foot work , ball handling to shooting. Every hour I worked out with Paul was fun, intense and beneficial to my game. Thanks for a great job and I will definitely be back to work with you when I come back from school.
Coach, I just completed the August session at the Pinnacle and wanted to thank you. I have been to numerous camps and clinics throughout Ohio and West Virginia since I was in the third grade and yours was by far the best. Every day was different and challenging. I know the adjustments you made to my shot will show immediate improvements. I am looking forward to the Elite workouts. Thanks again.
The boys are really enjoying the training! It is intense and very different types of drills than they are used to, but that is the idea and they know this will make them better players.
Vinny really likes Robbie and I can see that he responds to him well. That is awesome to see as a parent/coach.
Robbie is a great kid and very talented. Thank him for me and have him keep pushing Vin! 🙂
I had Paul and the Cleveland Basketball School come down for one of our 10 coaching days this summer. I thought this day was the most beneficial day we spent with our team all summer. Our staff is always looking for ways to motivate our players on what it takes to improve on their own in the off-season. Paul’s drills and message he gave our players that day was outstanding!!
Quality instruction of basketball fundamentals combined with a John Wooden type of commitment to repetition, repetition, repetition of fundamentals in a fun and nurturing environment is the best recipe for growth and long-term success, on and off the court. What sets the Cleveland Basketball School apart from other providers is the rigorous development of skills – physical, mental, and emotional. Whether it’s a player headed to Division I or a young athlete just starting out, the Cleveland Basketball School is bound to help him or her find the fun in fundamentals: hard work, respect, and love of the game.
Coach, This Saturday Kasey and Kyla competed at the Great Lake semi nationals of the Elks Hoop Shoot. They both faced the state champion of Michigan and Indiana. Kasey and Kyla both won in their age divisions and are heading on an all expense paid trip to Springfield Mass. on April 28th to compete in the nationals.
Kasey also won best shooter of the event award of any age. According to the Elks they are both 1 in approx 70,000 who entered in their age divisions throughout the 3 states. Thank you coach for taking the time to work with Kasey & Kyla the week leading up to this contest. It is truly appreciated.
You were a wonderful coach and I hope all of those kids and their families can appreciate your knowledge of the game. I learned so much from you and not just the game of basketball. As an adult/parent, when I look back, you taught me so much more than just basketball. There are so many things, but what stands out most are the values of being committed, working hard for your goals and being responsible for all that you do, gosh Paul and I hope we can use sports to teach our kids the way we were taught.
I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how solid your training sessions are. You and Robbie push these kids with incredible drills and enthusiasm which allows the boys to set realistic short and long term goals for the upcoming basketball season. I played in the 80’s and went to many camps but your program is the best I have seen.
You cover every facet to create a well rounded basketball player. Your shooting, core body development, dribbling, and defensive drills become part of the boys daily routines when they go to the gym. To see my son’s basketball skills, work habit, and tenacity increase during his short time with you only drives him more in both basketball and life. He definitely stands out because of you and Robbie. Keep up the great work and we’ll see you in the upcoming weeks.
My son Brian is 10 yrs. old & one of the youngest in your class.
He comes home & states that he’s slightly intimidated by all the skills & knowledge thrown @ him all @ once & how you don’t take any slacking off from any of the class attendees.
I keep telling him that this is one of the best “ life lessons” he’s going to get other than from his parents. I just tell him to keep trying his best, don’t give up & all will be fine!
I really think your program is terrific & hope to sign him up for the next session.
Thanks for all your efforts in trying to make our children better athletes & members of society!
The pressure for year round league play continues to increase for our children at a very young age for all sports. Basketball is different than most sports, skills have to be learned and practiced, extensively. All experts agree the development of fundamental skills continues to diminish for our youth in basketball.
Paul Haught and The Cleveland Basketball School understand this and provide a great avenue for skill development in a fun, upbeat, hard working environment. Not only will your child improve their skills, fundamentals and confidence in basketball, they will be developing skills and lessons to succeed in life. The Cleveland Basketball School is a “must do” for the basketball player looking to take their game to the next level.
In basketball the correlation between ball-handling and self-confidence on the the court is unmistakable. As a former high school head coach, I see a player’s court awareness and all parts of their game elevate when they attain a high level of proficiency with the ball.
I enjoyed watching two junior high athletes, one boy and one girl, grow in all phases of the game as a direct result of attending the Cleveland Basketball School’s classes. After performing the intricate skills in Coach Paul’s sessions, the ball-handling necessary in a game became basic and effortless for each of them.
This is the best basketball learning situation I have had the pleasure to witness, and only wish it had been available to me and my teams when I was coaching.
I am blown away every time I see Robbie run ball handling drills at your camp. The hand and eye coordination needed to pull off some of his drills is simply awesome to watch. My son who will be playing JV as a freshmen has benefited immensely from Robbie’s teaching. He goes in knowing he will not be able to duplicate Robbie’s drills immediately but to see him practice at home afterwords speaks louder than words. Robbie’s dribbling training goes above and beyond by building hand and wrist strength, quick foot work, low body balance, and most of all confidence to have the ball in their hands at crunch time. My only concern is that Robbie will not be around long once the college and pro programs snatch him up. Something he truly deserves. Again, hats off to the BEST all around basketball training center I have come across in 30 plus years.
I think you should train coaches and teachers (you probably do). I didn’t have the opportunity (or probably the ability, either) to participate in sports when I was young, but I’m so glad it’s an option for more girls today. I love sports now and really do recognize so much value in the tenets that you and other great coaches impart. Skills and technique are certainly important, but drive, self-esteem and perseverance make such a huge impact on success. Molding these kids is a huge responsibility and, sadly, so few educators, coaches and role models get that.
I don’t know if I should shake your hand, hug you or give you a kiss. From our short discussion a few nights ago, I could tell there was something different about your philosophy. Still, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from this, Joe’s first session with CBS. As a shorter kid, he’s used to “looking and playing up”. I want him to get even more used to it and what you put him through today was levels above the countless camps, training, practices and games that Joe’s experienced to date. And I mean that with regard to not only skills but also in terms of pace and intensity. Not that it could possibly be much needed, but feel free to give my name/number to any parent that wants to talk about CBS.
My daughter in the eighth grade has shown steady improvement in ball handling, agility, footwork and running the floor. She has been with you and Robbie for twenty sessions over 10 weeks, starting the third week in December and going thru the end of February. Teammates have asked how she is getting better at dribbling drills in practice. Parents of other players have notice her improvement. Just last week a referee told my daughter at the end of the game that her play had improved 110% from the fall. What started out as a basketball activity at CBS while the school was closed for the Christmas break has turned into a 4 hour weekly commitment that is exceeding my expectations. Over the last few years my daughter has attended numerous basketball summer camps and none have shown the improved results as your skills sessions. I highly recommend your basketball skills program, as my second daughter in the sixth grade, who started in February, has received notice with regards to her improved skills.
Every once and a while you find a treasure – that something in life you are so beyond thankful you found. That’s how we feel about Cleveland Basketball School! Coach Paul, Robbie and his staff are amazing. They teach kids the fundamentals not only in the game of basketball, but in the game of life. They have found the perfect balance of teaching ball handling, shooting, drills, etc. while emphasizing character qualities, hard work, effort and perseverance. They give kids confidence to believe in their own abilities and teach them good work ethics. Our son has grown through these sessions not only in his skills and confidence, but in his passion for the game. Coach Paul and Robbie have made a huge impact in our son’s life. Anyone who wants to develop as a player and as a person should go to the Cleveland Basketball School.
My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the immensely positive impact the CBS training has had on our son Andrew. When we moved to Mentor a year ago he started playing basketball for the first time, as a 5th grader. At the time he had a hard time with all aspects of the game with height being his only solid strength. With that, he worked hard and we wanted to find a training program that helped with his improvement efforts. We found that with your training program. He loved the drills, the tempo, the focus on hard work and athleticism, and the positive reinforcement provided by Robbie and yourself. He worked hard at the sessions and practiced just as hard at home. As a result, he improved enough over the past year to make our town’s 6th grade travel basketball team. He is very excited and mentioned that it would not have been possible without CBS.
As side note, the emphasis on hard work and athletic ability translated to his having a stand out year in football this fall. Your program’s focus on footwork, agility and speed allowed him to differentiate himself and perform at a very high level. He noticed the difference at the first practice and so did the coaches. I guess my point is that the lessons and training provided at CBS are universal and provide a solid base for success for whatever a young athlete wants to accomplish. We discuss this with anyone that we recommend going to CBS.
Football season has finished and our attention is turned to the upcoming basketball season. We look forward to getting back to CBS and watching Andrew take it to the next level.
With the multitude of basketball programs available in our area I questioned whether or not Cleveland Basketball School was that much different. Was it really worth taking two hours out of the middle of the day every Saturday and Sunday for a month? After two consecutive months with CBS I can say ABSOLUTELY! You and Robbie have created a program that is truly more than just basketball skills. It teaches agility, speed, focus and commitment. The kids learn the importance of teamwork and what that word means- it’s not just passing a ball, it’s how you treat others when mistakes are made and things don’t go as planned. These are skills and lessons that will serve our kids as “life lessons” well beyond what may happen on the court.
Robbie is a great asset. He is so much more than just a coach, his age makes him a perfect role model for the kids, he is patient and focused, and always takes the time to give them individual encouragement and assistance. You have done a great job there!
We feel so lucky to have found this program while our kids are young, and hope to benefit from many more months of CBS, our 9 year old can’t wait to participate!
By the way, he loves your teaching, and told me that he learned more in one session then he did at the other camps that were weeklong prior to your training.
I really would like to thank you and Robbie for letting my son RJ into the ball handling sessions. He really was apprehensive about it at first, and now he is practicing daily with the drills that he has learned from Robbie. He is attending conditioning for his JV team and his coach has noticed a drastic improvement in his ball handling skills which have boosted his confidence level up tremendously, so thank you again, it’s great to see.
I just wanted to let you know that Julia has decided to take some time off so she will not be at basketball. Thank you for everything and hopefully she will find her way back to your club. I have told many people about you guys and I think you have the BEST club around. You teach kids way more about life and reality than they realize. Thanks for everything and for making her feel so good about basketball. I really hope we end up back on the court with you guys. Continue on you guys are AWESOME.
You and Robbie have truly been blessed with the ability to teach. Logan’s love for the game is growing every day thanks to your program. I will be sending payment for the January Twinsburg skills session after the holiday, in fact just count him in for the entire year provided you continue to have room for him. We will see you at the Holiday Clinic as well.
I just wanted to say that I believe your skills camp is absolutely fantastic for all involved. You and your son really demonstrate the passion not only for the sport, but to become a better person and successful in life. As I watch the participants they really enjoy the drills as they know they strive to improve at each session. I will definitely promote your camp to all who I come in contact with as I believe the skills you teach are pertinent to the game. My daughter really enjoys the camp and feels she has become a little stronger and more confident in her abilities. So thank you both very much, I will definitely return to your camp with Casey and hopefully many others.
My husband and I think the training is great, and we’re so glad that she enjoys it. She is a hard worker, but the personal attention and encouragement that she gets from the coaches really “make” the session for her. She was a little intimidated at first she thought it would be all serious and no fun, but has since discovered that the coaches are really “nice” and that there IS time for fun mixed in with the work, and she feels that she’s doing well, which makes her want to work even harder so we’re very happy! Also, of course, the skills work is amazing and like nothing else she’s done although she’s played basketball for 3 years. The difference in what she’s learning here vs. what she’s learned playing for a club team is…well, there’s no comparison. We feel very fortunate that this level of training is available only 25 minutes from home!
Our two children, one in High School the other Middle School, participated in CBS for over six months before their school seasons. The improvements on their school teams, from one season to the next exceeded our expectations. Our children had the following thoughts on the Cleveland Basketball School experience: “First two weeks are the hardest, much improved in ball handling, footwork, and stamina, by staying with CBS you can see yourself improve, and it’s FUN”. As parents this past basketball season has been a pleasure to watch our children play on their school teams, and see basketball skills learned at CBS being applied on the court. Each of our children has had their most rewarding season playing basketball.
Thank you from our entire family.
I first wanted to thank you. Our son Maison started working with you in May at the Twinsburg location and he absolutely loves it. We have utilized many different basketball programs over the last couple of years and none can even compare to the level of your program. We are so thrilled that we have found you. Maison really loves playing basketball and I think that your program has encouraged that even more.
I just wanted to let you know that Justin made the Junior Varsity basketball team this year. I am convinced that your basketball school, and the wonderful influence that you had on his perspective, his skills, and his drive for excellence, played a huge role in him being successful. Keep up the great work! We have been very proud to recommend your school to friends and to anyone we can.
How refreshing it is to see CBS teach players, no matter skill level, about the fundamentals of the game of basketball while mixing in life skills. Coach Paul and Rob’s enthusiasm for the game rubs off quickly on the players and in turn makes the players want to work hard and have fun while doing the drills. What sets CBS apart from most other basketball schools is that Coach Paul and Rob show the players that they care about their progress and well being by giving special attention to each player no matter if their the best player or a player just starting out.
I just want to say thanks from all of Belize basketball enthusiasts. What a thrill it was for me to see the Belize High School All Star Team go through a great skill training session where the players never lost focus for the full hour you and Robbie put them through. On our eleven day trip to the King James Classic all of the players commented on how inspiring you guys make working on your game fun. They cant wait for you guys to return to Belize!
I wanted to thank you and Robbie for running a great operation – it is efficient, organized, motivational and in my opinion gives a young player the skills which, if they apply and work on outside of class help them become better players. Our daughter Megan attended three or four sessions at Twinsburg from last spring through the fall. She attended them during track, softball, and cross country seasons. I always asked if she wanted to go and her answer was always an emphatic YES.
Last year she was an occasional starter on her eighth grade team. As a freshman this year she is starting varsity as an undersized post player. She has always had a love for the game, which as you know can’t be taught or coached, and is willing to work hard but I believe the dramatic improvement in her skills, ability, sense of the game and confidence would not have happened without your classes. Anyone who asks how she has improved so much during the offseason, I tell them hard work and attending CBS. We will be back for another set of classes once her basketball season is over.
