Testimonials

We loved the camp, loved the structure and the fact that they bounce the ball to the rhythm of fast music which allows them to bounce it more and practice a whole lot without realizing it. So much improvement each time! I started bringing Coach Wayne Mendezona, “Coach Mendo” out to Missouri each year to help our whole team and even the area kids, even after our kids were no longer playing. It was fantastic. I recall one boy going past me talking to his Mom, He said, “I am so tired… But I am so excited I get to come back tomorrow!!” The kids loved the camp and came away better. One group of girls had many who had never played basketball. They came to the Quick Handle camp, worked hard at camp and were better than their peers. They won over and over in their careers as a team, and later won state! Coach Mendo not only teaches skills in basketball but when he lets them sit down for a few minutes here and there, He shares life experiences and gives them life skills as well! Great Coach, Great family, Great Camp. I Highly recommend Quick Handle!

Fantastic ball handling development in fun yet disciplined camps

Cthesp

This is a well-designed camp with a lot of thought put into it. Although there were times when it seemed Staffing was a little light, kids were engaged and there was a lot of activity going on.

Barring

My kids have gone to this camp the last 3 years and have been pushed physically and mentally. Thankful for the basketball and life skills they walk way with knowing.

Tenille

My kids have been to many sports camps and training sessions, but Quick Handle is the one camp that I could clearly see a difference in their skill set after completing – especially in ball handling. A great organization!!!!

Cdow4

kind, supportive, talent nurturing, building, growing athletes, affirming, caring as much about the inside of the athlete as the outer talent. Can’t say enough good things about Quickhandle!.

Ptroca

Mendo is a one of a kind. Perhaps one of the best all around trainers my girls have experienced. Ball skills, shooting, reading screens, implementation of ball skills into scoring all the way to teaching correct mentality for success.

Loved listening to your message “Dig Deep”.  I tell you…you are a great motivational speaker, not only for basketball, but for everything.  You would do great in the business world teaching your brand of leadership and positive energy.  I’ve heard many people and I feel you are one of the best.

These words were so resonating: “No excuses, don’t accept mediocrity, dream big, push to the max, go for it…but all this is not easy”.

I also love to hear that you get parents involved.  Get them pumped up.  Demand excellence.  Love that kind of talk!  This is working together – Coach Mendo, staff, parents, teammates maximizing the kid’s potential and love of the game.

I spoke with both of my sons (going on 8th and 10th).  We want to signup for the Point Guard Camp Aug 5-8th.  I need to take a look at the website again – couldn’t find where you register on-line though.

Mark has attended Coach Mendezona’s camps since he was in his first years of recreational basketball to playing for premier select teams.

It speaks volumes to watch Coach Mendezona’s kids at the clinics and camps. They are not only incredible basketball players (ranging from college teams to grade school), but are positive role models off the court as well.

Pure and simple: QUICK HANDLE HAS ALL THE INGREDIENTS TO MAKE PLAYERS SUCCESSFUL ON AND OFF THE COURT.

Coach Mendezona teaches the mental and physical components of the game.

  1. Integrity – coach shares life experiences with the kids that help them realize that integrity is a key ingredient to life
  2. Mental toughness – everyone gets knocked down – but those that get back up and continue the battle win
  3. Compete with yourself – the measuring stick is your own personal improvement
  4. Incredible ball handling skills
  5. Quick Trigger shooting
  6. Offensive and Defensive techniques

Bottom line – Quick Handle wastes no time in getting it done. Kid’s notice their results quickly, and want to keep coming back for more.

Try it out – you won’t be sorry.

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.

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.

I am a friend of Tommy Lizotte, who is the father of Nikhill Lizotte, who is your point guard on your 8th grade Quick Handle team. I was Nikhill Lizotte’s football coach this year, what a great kid he is to coach.

I just want to take a moment to tell you I watched your 8th grade Quick Handle Gold Team play 3 different times this weekend in the Best of The West Tournament in Yakima this last weekend. I saw your game against Friends Of Hoop, the quarterfinal game against the Seattle Rotary and your championship game against Team Washington.

I must tell you your team is the best middle school aged team I have ever seen come through Yakima and I have officiated the Best of The West tournament for many years. The reason I make that statement is because your team plays such great team ball & is so unselfish.

We all know that these elite tournaments consist of teams made up of all superstars, but to me what was so impressive about your team was the way they played as a team, sharing the ball, setting each other up and playing unbelievable team defense and the most intense totally dialed in group of kids I have seen. It is a real testament to you as a coach, because I have seen a lot of elite teams in AAU and I have just never seen a team with all those attributes I just listed.

My son and I sat a few rows behind your bench in the championship game and we constantly heard you reminding your team that it is not about one individual it’s about togetherness. I loved the way you challenged your big tall center (I believe his name is Cal) when he was on the bench in the first half when you told him to start being a leader etc etc. All in all it was just an absolute treat to watch your team play and to see youth basketball played with such a premium on a complete team concept.

Looking forward to watching your team play in the future.

Our kids have been coming to your camp for the past three years and they love it! They have built up their skill level and confidence each time they attend the camp. We always make sure we mention Quick Handle™ whenever we hear someone talking about basketball camps. You’re the best!

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.
