Dear Coach, I want to quit.
Hello Coach Leath, My dad says I can’t quit my team, but I don’t want to play football anymore. All I do is sit on the bench during the games. What should I do? Your Friend, Chris, 11 Dear Chris, Congratulations on making the football team. Believe it or not, the first year I tried out for football I did not make the team. I remember how sad I was when the coach read off […]
AMERICA NEEDS MORE “TEACHING” FROM IT’S COACHES
By Jay Bilas I have been watching more high school and junior basketball than ever, and I am worried about what I see. The canary in the United States’ basketball coal mine has not yet died, but it is starting to teeter on its perch. No reasonable basketball person can refute the fact that the fundamental skills of American players are slipping, and so is the American game. I believe a primary reason is an […]
16 RULES FOR PARENTS
By Allen Stein As both a coach and a father, I want to offer my 16 Rules for Basketball Parents: Parents… you must embrace the fact that this is your child’s journey – not yours. Do not live vicariously through them. Put your focus on being a supportive and encouraging parent. Parents… it’s true. Coaches do play favorites. They favor players who give the team the best chance to win, who have great attitudes, who work hard every day, who […]
5 Things Every Point Guard Should Know
Playing the point guard position in basketball comes with a lot of responsibilities. The position comes with an added role of leadership and being able to get the team organized on the offensive and defensive end, as well as being a skilled player. A lot of point guards are considered the coach on the floor or the general of the team. If you look at the elite point guards likeChris Paul and Rajon Rondo you […]

I want to thank you for your most timely and effective warm-up skills clinic. Austin called me and told me he has made the J.V. team at Midlo High. That is an incredible accomplishment for Austin who is only a freshman. I give you and your clinics a great amount of the credit. I recall that your clinic prepared Austin for middle school try-outs and he did very well. He went from being cut in 7th grade to becoming a starter in 8th grade. So the attendance in your clinics is showing a direct correlation to Austin's success. I can't thank you enough. As a father, we all want the best for our children. The difficulty arises in how do we find the resources to guide them along their path. I think I have found an answer and it is the attendance at your clinics. Clearly, your clinics have become an integral part of Austin's basketball success. Thank you again for providing the environment to Austin so he can take his game to the "Next Level".
Your 3 on 3 League is the best Basketball experience my son has had. The teaching of skills and fundamentals along with the opportunity to use them has improved his skill level but more importantly has brought his confidence to a new level. Thank you for this opportunity and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
"Coach Foley does a tremendous job teaching players how to play the game! His pre-season workouts helped prepare our team for our best season in school history. If you want to learn at camp, Coach Foley's Next Level is the camp you need to go to"
Coach Avery McGilvary
What an opportunity!!! To receive instruction on taking your game to "The Next Level" by a 24 year veteran of Division I college basketball. Coach Foley offers instruction for the beginning player as well as the much more intense, demanding clinics designed for the top players in the area. With such a low coach/player ratio, it's the greatest camp around!
Coach Larry Starr
My son had such a good time at the Camp. He was the banana day and crazy mixed up day winner and was so thrilled with all the games and prizes. At first he said he wasn't learning anything really but was having fun. Then he'd start telling me about pivoting and dribbling and defensive moves. So, of course, he was learning new things while having fun, the best way to learn. You must have one of these camps on our side of town next summer, near Midlothian.
