More from Will Hone Your Skills LLC

Will Hunters basketball as well as the football program are exceptional sports involvement for young children. Mr. Hunter is a consummate professional, committed to the social and moral enhancement of our youth. It really does not get much better than this type of organization. The coaches are also committed parents who clearly share coach Hunters vision. Many of the children in the program would find it difficult to be a part of other programs that might focus more on the ability of the child. This program is totally committed to encouraging and building up the child. The esteem building that occurs is tremendous and will certainly be something that will make itself a positive marker in the life of each child. Please keep up the excellent work coach Hunter.

Will and the other coaches are tremendous with the kids. They teach selflessness, teamwork, and responsibility in addition to basketball skills. This program is a hidden gem in the area. August 2016
