"We have seen changes in our son's behavior at home and in the grades he has brought home the last 3 months. He is really starting to understand what he needs to do in order to make our home and his day to day life more peaceful. HOOPS Life is making him want to be a better person on and off the court. We are thrilled with this program!"Patrick "Pat" John Burke is a former Professional basketball player. Born December 14, 1973, in Dublin, Ireland. First Irish-born player ever to play in the NBA.

"My boys learned a lot this week! They are tired campers, which is the way it is supposed to be!! Your staff radiates positivity, and I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation.
"Thanks to all of you for your hard work and putting on such a great camp for the kids! We are lucky to have Hoops here on Mt. Dora!"
"Our family would like to thank you for this years Basketball camp! Max really learned a lot in just one week, he will be back! Thank you for the values, structure and, "Philosophy" taught this week along with Basketball. We feel you have the best overall program in Central Florida."
"My son had zero experience AND confidence when he started HOOPS camp. I saw an amazing difference in him in just one week! He had a great time, loved his coaches and learned a lot. I was also impressed with the cleanliness of the gym & how well organized they are. We are so fortunate to have the talent in the game with coaches who care! Thank you!"
"HOOPS is amazing!! The coaches are amazing!! There is no where else i would want to be!! Both Pat and Fenny have taught me so much not only in basketball but in life!! It wasn't always easy but it defiantly made me a better player and person!! I Love them both so much!! They have done above and beyond for me and everyone who comes into their gym!! If you want to become a better player and person HOOPS is where you need to be!! They will always be there to help you they never once make you feel unwanted!! If you need some extra help they are always there and willing!! Pat and Fenny are the most down to earth and understanding men I have ever met!! They are amazing!! When is the last time you got to practice with 2 ex-NBA players.....NEVER!! Come to HOOPS it will change you for the better I promise, and you will build relationships that will last a long time and help you in life and basketball! All you need is a good work ethic and the love for basketball and allow Pat and Fenny to make you into the best player you can be!! THANK YOU SO MUCH PAT AND FENNY YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST AND I LOVE YOU BOTH!!"
"HOOPS is the place to be to not only get better, but build relationships that will last a lifetime. It's not everyday that you get the opportunity to get trained on a personal level by ex-NBA players. Pat and Fenny really know what they are talking about, and if you put the effort forward, they will keep pushing you and teaching you until you get the concepts. Not once did I ever feel like they didn't want to be there, or they were giving me half of themselves. Everyday I'm there, they push even themselves to make sure everyone is getting better at their own personal level. It's amazing how much time and effort they put into everyone INDIVIDUALLY. The coaches constantly let me stay after practice to work on my shooting, or even to ask about something we learned during our training session. If you're looking to excel at a high level, HOOPS is the place to be without a doubt!"
"Thank you both so much for taking care of
my 'lil ball-players. Luke and Kenan are so enthusiastic
about being a part of your gym and program. Everyone at your
facility has had a positive impact on their playing
abilities and their attitude. How wonderful that they have
hard-working, professional, up-beat adults to be additional
role models for them. Again, thank you!"
upcoming junior at Carson-Newman Christian University on
basketball scholarship. I came home last summer looking to
GET BETTER EVERYDAY and Hoops is where I decided to train.
When I returned to school, all of my coaches told me that I
was by far the most improved player. I've had teammates tell
me I shoot like a machines simply because I was using the
mechanics and fundamentals taught at Hoops. Needless to say,
I came back to Hoops this summer to train. I'm constantly
learning more about the game. With Pat who was a NBA post
player and Fenny who was an NBA guard, the stuff you learn
is top-notch. Anyone close to the Lake County area who is
SERIOUSLY interested in getting better, Hoops is the place
to be. I'd recommend this training facility to any ball
player at any level."
"Mount Dora is fortunate to have Pat here in town. Hoops is a wonderful addition to the community and the word is getting out!"
"Lake County is truly fortunate to have such a wonderful facility. My son had the best summer of his life (his exact words), and is now attending Hoops classes weekly. I am so impressed with everything about Hoops. Thank you!"
"I came home after my first year of college at Carson-Newman College knowing that I need to get better and that I need a place to get better. Fortunately, I found Hoops. Pat and Fenny really know and understand the game of basketball and together they have helped me improve my game dramatically. My jump shot and ball-handing are on a completely new level. I've learned keys to playing defense. All in all, I've learned the science of the sport. The workouts are extremely effective and worth every penny. I am extremely pleased with the progress that I've made and I am looking forward to showing off my new game. All thanks to Pat and Fenny."
"Brandon had so much fun this week, that he has
asked to come back next week! My husband and I are impressed
with his improvement in such a short time. The coaches have
motivated him so much that he is out practicing every night!
It puts a smile on my face and his too! Needless to say, he
is coming back next week!"
"We were so impressed with the camp! The boys loved it, even though they were wiped out every night, so that's saying something! Pat is so good with the kids, what a great role model. Thanks for giving them a great experience this summer."
