"I have had the pleasure of knowing Coach Derek Klein for a long time. He is a brilliant coach and trainer. He is kind, patient, positive, and full of encouragement. He is extremely diligent and pays a lot of attention to important details. He has helped my son with mastering very advanced skills while at the same time increasing his mental strength on the court. I highly recommend Derek to any player who wants to improve their game . Derek is a top notch coach who has helped my son tremendously over many many years, and for that I am forever grateful."

"I was blessed to have the opportunity to coach Christina at LUHI where she was a great leader and contributor to an outstanding program as well as coaching beside her during the AAU circuit. She has grown to be a tremendous role model for young women and is continuously striving to be a better coach and a leader. She is a great educator and is constantly building strong relationships with players, parents and administrators. Any young athlete that wants to be successful in athletics and in life would benefit greatly under Christina's guidance."
