HIGHLIGHTS OF COACH MENDO’S QUALIFICATIONS:
“Nothing gives me more satisfaction than helping to develop the individual skills of players. I have such a passion to help players realize their dreams. It is so exciting to see players do something they weren’t able to do beforehand. Just the fact that they are there shows a commitment to get better. That alone kicks in my competitive juices to help them achieve their goals.”
“My son, KJ, has always played the post. KJ went to the Quick Handle Ball Handling Camp and it was the best camp my son has ever gone to. I like the fact that the camp focused on one aspect of the game. The camp was very affordable and was the best money I’ve ever spent on a camp. There was a very noticeable change not only in his ball handling but more importantly in his confidence and his work ethic. The” can do” attitude that Coach Mendo teaches is what I teach my son, but coming from an outside influence really validated what I am teaching my son. Coach Mendo is not only a great ball handling coach but more importantly he is a great role model and influence on the kids attending his camp. This year I will put both my 14-yr old and 8-yr old sons in the camp. If your child is serious about playing the game of basketball, I guarantee you this camp will be the best thing you can do for your student athlete.”

“Coach Mendo has created an exceptional skill development program for basketball players who really want to succeed. The objectives are so clearly defined that the students know exactly what is being taught and how it is evaluated. This is not a ‘fluff, just keep the kids busy’ program. Many basketball players return year after year to learn the more complex skills. I highly recommend the program.”

“My daughter came home from school one day in the seventh grade and told me she wanted to play basketball in college. She is only 5 feet 4 inches tall but with a competitive and big heart. One of the first things I investigated was to find basketball training for my daughter knowing that fundamentals and skill development were very important to succeed. I did my research and found a camp in Kirkland, Wash called Quick Handle ran by Coach Mendezona. I was so impressed how he taught the kids dribbling skills that I signed up for other camps as well. My daughter loved to go to Coach Mendo’s camps because she was challenged and got better each time. His training, skill development and the mental approach to the game has influenced her success more than anymore. I am proud to say that my daughter will be playing basketball at a Division 2 school next year. I want to thank Coach Mendo and Quick Handle for dramatically improving her as a basketball player.”
