"St. Paul Basketball provides an excellent opportunity for area youth to hone their skills, learn the game of basketball, and have a great time doing so! My sons Jack and Adam play with St. Paul Basketball and I have been continually impressed by the energy throughout St. Paul Basketball, from the players to the coaches to the supportive parents. I would encourage any aspiring basketball player in the area to learn more about this excellent program." - John Tauer, Head Coach UST Men's Basketball

"Some of the best memories of my childhood are playing St. Paul traveling basketball. I learned so many valuable lessons in basketball that I continued to use throughout high school and college. I also formed many lifelong friendships that I continue to have today, including my best friend and college teammate John Nance, with our friendship being formed during St. Paul basketball. The weekend tournaments playing basketball with your best friends is an experience second to none. I cherish my memories from St. Paul basketball and would highly suggest the experience to anyone who wants to learn how to play basketball and meet a lot of great people doing it" - Tommy Hannon
