- The coaches at Russell Hoops have helped my son improve his basketball skills and court awareness, also helping him to make the county team.
- Ben's combination of exceptional skills, and personal rapport makes him a great asset to basketball development at all levels.
- In my years as a PE teacher I have seen many external coaches come and go, however I beleive Ben to be one of the best coaches working in sport in this area.
- My son David has been attending Russell Hoops camps for about 2 years now, and has benefited hugely from the instruction he receives. Not only does Ben have an excellent understanding of the game, and a gift for teaching some of the trickier technical aspects, but he is a great encourager. I believe this is a massively important part of the role of coach and mentor, particularly at the junior levels of sport.
