Message From Coach Mello

"Every kid who picks up a basketball has a dream"

At Performance Basketball, our mission goes beyond just teaching the skills of the game. Our greater purpose is to cultivate a life long love of the game for every boy and girl who comes into our gym. I believe that training the body and teaching the mind transforms a young player and moves them towards fulfilling their personal potential.

All of our Clinics offer a solid foundation of fundamental skill development for beginning players and a strong challenge for advanced players. We use a Mastery Approach of teaching, which celebrates effort as much as achievement and focuses on personal development, learning and improving.

"I look forward to providing your child with a great experience at Performance Basketball!"
- Sincerely, Byron Mello
