I am writing this letter regarding my family’s experience with Coach Paren Fisher last basketball season. My grandson is passionate about basketball, but Coach Fisher also stressed how important doing well in school is. He also expressed his desire to assist the boys in becoming their best on and off the basketball court. His behavior indicated a true commitment to all participating in his program.My grandson definitely felt and saw the benefits of working with Coach Fisher, he improved his basic fundamentals of the game, in addition to learning and understanding the importance of team work.What I liked about this program were the efforts Coach Fisher put into getting the boys and their parents/families together outside of basketball. It allowed the boys to bond and form friendships and I feel it resulted in a stronger closer team when on the court.We would recommend Coach Fisher’s program to anyone looking for great training in fundamentals and a sound positive experience as it relates to the game of basketball.

This will be my son’s second year with Coach Fisher’s AAU Basketball organization and I wouldn’t allow him to play for anyone else.Coach Fisher is a very positive role model who encourages my son to work hard at becoming a better basketball player as a whole. When my son began with Coach Fisher’s organization, he needed a lot of work on his attitude and his physical ability. Being a part of Coach Fisher’s organization, my son works very hard at becoming a better player, has a very positive attitude towards his coach, teammates and the game of basketball as a whole. Coach Fisher’s program teaches basketball fundamentals that has given me the opportunity to follow the game of basketball and given my son the opportunity to understand positions, plays, and most of all, his role. No program my son has ever been a part of has taught my son his role. Coach Fisher always displays a high degree of integrity, responsibility, the importance of good sportsmanship and ambition, while in turn demanding the same from his players, which produces a winning attitude and a winning team. My son plays in other youth sports, but Coach Fisher’s organization is the only organization I have ever comfortable leaving my son without parental supervision. His good judgment and mature outlook ensure a logical and practical approach to his coaching, which has bought my trust in his program.

My son played on his youth basketball team last season and will play again this season. Mr. Fisher demonstrated a good work ethic and interpersonal skills. I was initially impressed with Paren Fisher’s enthusiasm, communication skills, professional demeanor and overall knowledge of basketball. During last season Coach Fisher has been reliable, dedicated and upbeat. His ability to calm angry or frustrated ball players is unparalleled. Coach Fisher multitasks effectively and is able to handle a large number of youth at one time and keep them on task.
Of particular value to me as a parent is Coach Fisher’s team player mind-set, enthusiastic commitment to his players which exceeds the parent’s expectations. He not only teaches the art of basketball but he is a role model for his players on and off the court. Coach Fisher is a hardworking, dedicated professional who has my support in whatever he chooses to pursue.

In the past year that I have known Coach Paren Fisher I have had the pleasure of getting to know a great coach, been impressed with his passion for coaching, his ability to communicate effectively with the parents and players and his dedication to the development and education of his players. Coach Paren is genuinely a great individual that cares about the people around him. He takes a vested interest in his players and their lives. Coach Paren is truly beneficial to all those he has/will come in contact with. His knowledge of the game and his ability to see the potential in any player is a true gift. He has the tolerance to handle various attitudes and skill sets on a team. Coach Paren is more than capable of bringing the best out in a player whether it is on or off the court. As a parent, I appreciate the communication lines that he keeps open with us; whether it is to discuss up coming events or to give us encouraging words after a game whether it be a win or loss. During the off season he keeps in contact with his players to make sure they are on the right track and successful in whatever other activities they pursue. My child has truly benefited from knowing and learning from Coach Paren. He appreciates the interest that his coach has in his life outside of basketball, whether it is to inquire about school performance or attend one of his football games. We both look forward to this upcoming year and the many to follow.

Coach Fisher has mentored, coached and developed my son’s basketball fundamental skills over the last year. We were most impressed by the confidence level that he instills in the youth. Coach Fisher also has great communication skills that effectively reach the youth at all times even under pressure. He has proven to be a great coach and a leader. He is highly organized and extremely competent for any coaching position. He has a great rapport with the youth, verbally and has demonstrated excellent leadership qualities.
