"Just came back from playing basketball with my daughter and am blown away with how well she played. This was her 3rd year at this camp and these coaches who run it are awesome guys! They have also helped my daughter improve in all areas of her game. Her defense in particular was suffocating me tonight and I was really trying. The camp is over but if anyone is considering sending their kids to a basketball camp in the future, this is the place to learn. They normally offer at least 2 weeks at Walt Whitman High School. Thanks coach Fitz and coach Diana!" -Richard S.
"I'm signing my younger daughter up for her second season, and like last summer she's participating in all of the sessions. Last summer, she really grew in her skill level and confidence, and the directors and counselors were very enthusiastic and encouraging about the young players.
The counselors are all high school and college age basketball players, and there is a nurse on- sight. I remember the opening day orientation presentation, where both Tom F. and Tom D. made it a point to explain to the campers how important safety and dedication were for the summer program.
I was amazed about the practice drills and how they were able to keep the momentum up for the campers. They even ended each one week session with a carefully filled-out and upbeat progress report." -April S.

"My daughters attended your summer camp last year at CTK and loved it. They are playing CYO now at CTK and the camp made such a difference. Actually as a result of the girls interest in basketball I'm coaching both their teams and availed myself of the coaches clinic Tom Fitzpatrick was kind enough to run for us in the beginning of the year, very informative and brought me right back to my years of playing as a young kid." -Dennis B.
