Ra1 Parent

This continues to be the best basketball experience for my daughter. She is challenged and exposed to high-level tournaments and showcases. Kevin personally takes time out to encourage and push her to the next level. She has grown not only as a player but as a person because of Rise as One. Kevin‘s focus on personal responsibility teambuilding and training has impacted my daughter on and off the court. Also, I highly recommend this program to anyone who is dedicated to the game and wants to train for the next level.

RA1 Parent

This is such an amazing basketball family. Ben is having great success with Rise. Every coach is so patient and encouraging. Ben’s confidence level has soared and they are teaching him how to shoot correctly. Nothing but great things to say about Rise. One of the best choices we could’ve made for Ben. He has learned so much and has developed a new love for the sport and the competition. Thank you, Coach Kevin, all your dedication it is noticed.
