Testimonials

 

"Joe DeSantis is constantly working. I remember when we had a clinic at St. John's, and I was amazed at how well he knew his fundamentals. He could really break the game down...and he could show you how to do it. Not many coaches can do that, teach and then show by example. He is an excellent student of the game."Former St. John's University and Hall of Fame Coach Lou Carnesecca

"Thank you for all of the hard work you put in with me.  I am very excited to be called up to varsity." Brendan Nugent, Sophomore, St. Jospeh High School, Trumbull, CT

Whatever the level ...Joe's complete knowledge of player development and of the game will help your child reach his potential - Joe DeSantis (DBA) knows what it takes!     Dennis Kelly, Coordinator Shelton Park and Rec Clinic and Division One college referee denniske@us.ibm.com

"My son loves working with Joe. Because of the energy, passion and knowledge with which Joe DeSantis conducts his workouts, my son is gaining the skills and confidence he needs to get better. He has convinced my son that if he practices with passion - he will be able to play with passion. As a parent, I know this will have an impact not only on the basketball court, but in life." Elliott Greenberg, parent of senior guard, Jason - Joel Barlow HS, Redding CT

 

"Coach DeSantis provided a successful clinic to kick-off our Parks and Rec season. He and his staff demonstrated and provided drills of fundamental basketball skills for ages 7-17. I was impressed with their ability to relate and communicate with all age levels." Steve Boles, Commissioner of Biddy and Varsity Shelton Hoops

 

"I want to extend my sincere thanks for all that you do for these kids.  The DBA Fall HS League was top notch and the parents and I appreciate the college exposure you got for these kids.  I am tickled pink with the progress that these players have made to date as a result of your workouts." Tim Tallcouch, Head Boys Basketball Coach, Wilton High School  

We were lucky enough to have Joe come in and do a 90 minute clinic for our house and travel coaches, running drills with two of our travel teams. Ive had nothing but great feedback and would highly recommend that other area programs take advantage of Joes teaching ability and enthusiasm for the game, he can help all of us improve our coaching skills."

"Joe-  I have great news! Michael made the basketball team.  We can't thank you enough - you are like family to us.  We want him to continue to work with him so he can get even better.  You pushed him so he could do it on his own merits- this is unbelievable!"  Mike Vitello on the news that his son made the Masuk High School Basketball Team.

"My boys really had fun at the Wakeman Boys and Girls Club Clinic.  They continue to practice the drills you taught them on our driveway.  We have attended many camps and clinics and yours was by far the best.  Please keep us on your mailing list for future events."  Karen Harding, parent of Seamus (10) and Patrick (8)
