4 years ago we met Coach Jim Foster at a house league game in Elmwood Park. He was there watching one of his players for his team Impact Basketball. He noticed my son Jimmy, who in 7th grade towered over everyone on the court. Back in those days, Jimmy just stood under the backboard and grabbed rebounds and put up a lot of garbage points.
Jim Foster told us if you give him to me, I will turn him into a guard. At first I thought he was joking. Then I started to bring him to some IMPACT skills training sessions. I immediately noticed a difference in not only his play, but also his knowledge of the game. His confidence skyrocketed!
This season was his freshman year in high school. He was captain of both the freshman and sophomore teams, with quality minutes on varsity as a freshman. The best thing I can say is if Jim Foster and his coaches say they can help your son or daughter, believe him. Trust him. If your child is not afraid to work hard and listen to his coaches, you will be amazed.
