- Summer Camps
With summer at it’s midway point, I wanted to provide some motivation to help you get over the hump and stay on the grind. If you want to be successful this winter, you have to put in the work this summer. I got up early. He slept in I trained with a purpose. He did a few push-ups. I made 500 shots a day. He played H-O-R-S-E. I watched my diet. He went to Burger […]
Sports Should Be Child’s Play
By DAVID EPSTEIN (JUNE 10, 2014) THE national furor over concussions misses the primary scourge that is harming kids and damaging youth sports in America. The heightened pressure on child athletes to be, essentially, adult athletes has fostered an epidemic of hyperspecialization that is both dangerous and counterproductive. One New York City soccer club proudly advertises its development pipeline for kids under age 6, known as U6. The coach-picked stars, “poised for elite level soccer,” […]
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to you. My daughter has attended various Bob Foley basketball training opportunities over the years — camps, clinics, and 3 on 3. She loves basketball, and she has been playing since she was in first grade. Although she would have loved to be on an AAU team, we never chose to get involved in AAU. When my daughter was in middle school, she never made […]
16 Rules for Basketball 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 […]
Personal accountability is simply defined as people assuming responsibility for their own actions. You’ve heard it before, “There is no I in team.” But the old adage is quickly becoming outdated. In fact, there is an “I” in team. In order for my team to produce top results, ‘I’ must be accountable for my work. “I” must pull my own weight. “I” am just as accountable for my team members as they are for me. […]

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.

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".
"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
