What people are saying...
"The Sonoma County Cager Basketball program has been a huge part of my son’s development over the past year. My son learned not only the proper basketball fundamentals (blocking out for rebounds; how to handle the ball, post moves, pivoting, and defensive stances) but also the principles of how to play the game of basketball. On the one hand he received coaching from two of the best coaches in the area and on the other hand, he received the best teaching of the game from two of the most experienced coaches in the north coast. The program is a great combination of drills and developing fundamental skills and the opportunity to apply those skills in game situations. Games that will allow the players to experience a higher level of play outside
of Sonoma county, under the supervision of excellent coaches with an emphasis on developing the individual to play as a team member in a competitive environment."

“Our son Owen really enjoyed his first season with the
Sonoma County Cagers and he is excited for the new season to begin. There is no doubt that the coaching staff for the Cagers is among the best in the area and it showed in our son’s development as a player”
I really enjoyed Cagers. The coaching was excellent. We
worked from the basic fundamentals of the game to the more technical parts. The group of kids that played on Cagers was very nice. It makes it a lot more fun when the coaching is great and the players are serious about the game. Because of this we could learn very quickly. Everyone was very committed. I would definitely recommend Cagers!
"Playing with the Cagers was an incredible experience for my son. He enjoyed not only the exceptional teachings from such experienced coaches, but the manner in which it was delivered. Their positive approach to the fundamentals of basketball motivated him to give his very best. He also really enjoyed being part of a program that allowed him to play with other players in Sonoma County. We are looking forward to another season with the Cagers."

loving the experience, and gaining both skill and confidence. Thanks for all that you're doing!!"
"To have a program of this caliber is truly a blessing for youth basketball in Sonoma County. Both Tom Fitchie and Brian Long have this unique passion, knowledge and love of the game that not only educates my sons, but has them smiling."

Paul and Brenda Smith shared the following about
It is a great way to improve your skills/abilities in playing a team sport such as basketball. Great experience in competitive gaming for high school level (great preparation for high school). Our son had a great
time, improved his game, and built his confidence so that he could try out for the high school freshman team.
Coaching was right on target -- we appreciated the time, support, encouragement, energy and skills taught by these experienced coaches.
Looking forward to improving basketball skills further this year!
