Mirjana Jurcic – Club Team Parent
“You guys must be on top of the world with so many DRIVE kids doing so well. Just saw the news about Izaiah. You guys have definitely set a high standard for kids. Success breeds success. So much work on and off the court. So proud of DRIVE!”
Caroline Holway – Summer Camp Parent
“Don’t be surprised to see more participants from Whitehorse. I have coached for some 30 years and know when I see quality instruction. You run an excellent camp. Some of my friends have chosen Juneau Alaska and one went to a Vancouver camp this year. I think they will choose DRIVE after I told them about our experience. Richmond would probably be less expense for us than Juneau anyway even though AK is closer. Hopefully we’ll see you again next summer.”
Brent Mullin – Club Team Parent
“Perhaps more importantly, just such a big congratulations to you and Pasha and all the guys that have been with you from early on. The recent accomplishments of Drive are huge and are reflected in the amazing developments and announcements. It must be so rewarding for you and Pasha to see your vision and passion and work coming to such amazing results. I can also say it’s truly also very exciting for the rest of us, who are so proud of what you guys have done and are doing. And, at least in my view, at the core of it is the amazing, positive way you treat and develop the kids and the true Drive family concept you have developed. As a parent, that’s such a big, positive part of it beyond even the amazing basketball. I imagine you and Pasha are on the go all the time, but I hope both of you get some moments at least to savour what you’ve accomplished. Way to go!”
Tim Cowley – Club Team Parent
“Major congrats for all the good news coming out of DRIVE this week. Both of you and your team have worked hard to gain respect in the basketball community and it is paying dividends. Most impressive to me is your continuing strive for excellence and you have learned from your experiences and bettered your program every year. Our younger players are blessed to have role models not only at the coaching level but the older players that have come through Drive. The kids today really do look up to the Jadon’s. Mindy’s and Jermaine’s and it sets the bar so high for them. I don’t know where the ceiling is for you guys but I know you will continue to pursue excellence.”
Sharon Rutledge – Spring Break Camp Parent
Wanted to give some feedback on your programs. I found the communication, organization and format incredible. The coaches were always engaged, focused on the kids with lots of smiles and fun. The ability to get all the various ages and abilities involved speaks volumes. I was fascinated to watch the kids use full size balls and shoot on the ten foot hoops. We have participated in many sports and different levels of camps and yours are extraordinary. Good luck growing the sport, it is exciting to watch. Thanks.”
Greg Chambers – Training Academy Parent
“I was VERY impressed with DRIVE! Having been to other camps, I expected the same routine of monotonous drills and the occasional scrimmage. What my daughter received however was totally different. The coaches were experienced, knowledgeable, organized and passionate. Each coach knew every player personally and their level of skills. DRIVE focused on my daughter as a COMPLETE player by working on her athletic conditioning, ball handling, offensive and defensive skills. I’d recommend DRIVE to any parent who wants a totally fun, positive and supportive experience for their child.”
Bob and Mary-Jo Ohl – Training Academy Parent
“Thanks to DRIVE Basketball, our daughter, Josie, regained her confidence on the court. Your course is an excellent blend of conditioning, skills, information, games and encouragement. We felt that you knew Josie as an individual, not just a number! The coaches at DRIVE are knowledgeable, fun, dedicated and kind – an awesome combination of qualities and people. Josie look forward to participating in future camps! Thanks, DRIVE!”

Lucian Sauciuc – Training Academy Participant (Current DRIVE Coach)
“I thought DRIVE without a doubt was the best camp I have gone to. During the 5 weeks, I made huge progressions in my game and all the coaches did a phenomenal job of teaching and encouraging the players. The attitude and atmosphere at the camp was always so positive and it made it an awesome basketball environment to learn from some of Canada’s bests.”
Megan B. – Training Academy Participant
“Not only did I seriously improve my all around game skills, I gained major confidence and was pushed to try things I wouldn’t have otherwise.”
Alex L. – Training Academy Participant
“It has improved my life-skills because it made me love the game even more and helped take my game to another level. Because of DRIVE, I have been practicing every morning using DRIVE basketball drills to improve my game.”
Anmol M. – Training Academy Participant
“DRIVE has exceeded my expectations. I now have such a strong network of coaches and friends through all the DRIVE events. It has also improved my life a lot. It has disciplined me and made me excel in everything I do. It’s improved my social life and gave me role models to follow.”
Cole B. – Training Academy Particpant
“I used to think shooting accurately was impossible, DRIVE helped me think different.”
