"There's something to be said when you're children leave the State and compete in an entirely different region of the country and the adults running those programs take serious note in the difference of skill, footwork, shooting, leadership and confidence that your kids have over the other kids. Both ...my boys started with the Y and Suncoast programs but the lack of teaching and skill work that existed there made us look for something very different. There is no place like Skills First/Mid Range Game in the Lakewood Ranch area, led by Toby Madison. The Friday night workouts, specialty clinics, summer camps and travel basketball leagues not only teach fundamentals including footwork and shooting techniques, but also an understanding of how the game really works. In addition and probably just as important, the kids learn and play with other kids from the Lakewood Ranch area that will go to Lakewood Ranch High School. This allows the kids to start at a very early age with each other and to stay with each other making the transition to High School basketball that much easier and stronger for our Coaches and kids! Whether your child has skills already or is just a natural athlete looking for a second or primary sport, they will be taught, nurtured and accepted because that is who Toby Madison is."

"This past year has been such a great experience for Brody, and we feel so lucky to have found a quality basketball program right here in the Lakewood Ranch area. Bro started playing basketball a couple years ago at the Y and Suncoast and immediately fell in love with the sport, but had a lot to learn and was looking for something more. That's when we found out about the new Skills First/Mid-Range Game program that Toby was starting in Lakewood Ranch. Toby's Friday night workouts and basketball clinics focus on the fundamentals and have given Brody so much more confidence out on the court. It's really been fun to watch him grow as a player, while making some great friends along the way. Thanks Toby for sharing your passion with these boys - looking forward to the future of your program! We'll continue to spread the word about it! "
