In the words of my ten year old: "I want to go to Esface camp every week this summer. I love the games and the competitive drills. It makes me get better. It would also be good for someone who is new to basketball because they know how to make it fun. The coaches are awesome." Parent perspective: High energy, unfailingly positive coaches, and strong skill development. I would recommend whether your child is new to basketball or an avid competitive player. However, consistent Esface influence may turn the former into the latter! - J.K. (Palo Alto)

Team Esface is the perfect place to park the boys in the summer. The boys love it! They come home exhausted! And they really learn a lot about basketball fundamentals. The coaches also keep the bar high and the boys are encouraged with homework which helps reinforce their commitment and knowledge of the sport. There is not a better camp out there. - Sarah B. (Menlo Park)

Both my kids including a girl and a boy attended the Team Esface camp now 3 years ago and they loved it! Since then, they have been playing Team Esface year around. In fact, most of my kids' classmates who have also gone to this camp eventually signed up for Team Esface for the following season. Lots of fun, good basketball, and passionate coaches! - Bijal S. (Palo Alto)
