I saw your tryout flyer posted on Facebook in NJ Basketball. My oldest son, John, who is 14 and going into 9th grade, would like to try out. My coworker who works part time for the town of Montville and the rec department both spoke highly of your group. We’ll be there on 9/1 at 6:00. Thanks!

“Drills, Skills and Thrills Basketball has been running basketball camps and clinics for the town of Montville for the past 9 years. Each year Ken’s basketball programs have grown in enrollment and reputation. I recommend DST Basketball for anyone interested in having fun while they learn the game of basketball.”

– Kelley Kehoe
Recreation Supervisor, Montville, NJ

“If your child has any kind of interest in playing the game of basketball, and wants to get better at it, go to Ken and the DST training camps. You’ll learn many different things. Your fundamentals will improve a lot and by the time your training is over I guarantee you’ll become a better player. Ken is a great guy and the training camps will help develop your child’s basketball fundamentals”

– Adrian Polanco
Recreation Supervisor, Montville NJ

“I am extremely happy with the programs that Drills, Skills, and Thrills have organized. The staff is very professional and Ken is very quick to reply to all emails and phone calls. DST has always been very reliable and I recommend this group to anyone looking for instructional and fun basketball programs.”
