I have been attending Kent Meyer's FCHEBL since it was started years ago. Coach Meyer cares about each and everyone of his players. This Sunday Clinic is the best around and the players improvement is something to see. The FCHEBL is a must for all player, boys and girls from grades 9th and up. Thanks Coach Meyer and your entire Staff for what you do for student athletes!...........

Thank you Coach Meyer!  I had so much fun, learned a lot, and enjoyed it.  I wish I would have played before this year being my senior year.  I know it would have helped me become a better player.  I got much better because of playing in FCHEBL.  I will be attending Carroll University.

Thanks for putting on the FCHEBL.  It is always good to get another look at the kids we are heavily recruiting.  We also get a chance to chat with parents, so that adds to our recruiting as well.

FCHEBL gives the players a step-up for the start of high school season.  We are parents of a senior, we will miss it next year.  Kent and program helped my daughter Kayla get ready for the high school season.  It helped her Junior year, hopefully her senior year as well.  Thank you Coach Meyer - Alicia FCHEBL Player & Tony DeRosia Parent. 2016

Great time of learning, developing skills, great competition, & "fun".

 

Kent- It was nice to see you at the Belleville vs Wisconsin Dells Girls game this past Saturday.  Most importantly though I want to say "Thanks" for the notes of encouragement you gave to Jenna at the end of the game.  Once again, just a confirmation as to why she enjoyed FCHEBL this past fall.  It's nice to see the positive feedback that you and your staff willingly share with the young athletes.   I know Jenna was glad to see you and really enjoyed the "notes"!Hopefully, we'll cross paths again this basketball season.  If not, see you at FCHEBL 2016.  Ladd Mace, father of Jenna Mace, Class of 2018 Wisconsin Dells.

 

I am glad you took an interest in FCHEBL.  I think Jay will find the league enjoyable, well organized, and competitive.  Kent Meyer is a class individual.  He surrounds his program with good coaches, fair play, and is dedicated to providing a positive experience for each of the players.  Kurt Krueger, father of Ryan Krueger, Class of 2017 Hortonville.

My son is a senior and has been here three years.  It has been a quality experience. I think the 'Coaches' Comments' feedback is crucial to the experience; these aren't just pick-up games.  I really appreciated the consultation with a rep from National Scouting Report last year. - Jim DeBroux, father of Evan DeBroux, Class of 2016, Random Lake.

I liked the fact that my son was able to play with other strong athletes and have the exposure to college coaches. - May Kay Heinold, Ozaukee parent.

I'm so glad I got the opportunity to play in FCHEBL.  I liked that it is a competitive environment where I could still focus on improving my game.  Everyone came to play their hardest each week. I frequently checked the website to see when the 'Coaches' Comments' were posted and tried to work on the areas of improvement during the week. - Grace Kinsey, Class of 2018   Lake Zurich, IL.

Equal playing time across the board- Marshall parent.

I always enjoy the positive, well-organized and competitive environment. - Kurt Krueger, father of Ryan Krueger, Class of 2017, Hortonville.

Great coaches, great competition.  Great program!  Thanks! - Dean & Sandy Winkel, parents of Sara Winkel, Class of 2016, Kiel.

Competition is good & balanced playing time- Michael Gardipee, father of Jordan, Class of 2018, Port Washington.

Most importantly I felt the positive and encouraging atmosphere and comments made all the girls believe in their God-given abilities and talents.  They saw an opportunity to flourish with confidence!! Relationships and friendships were built.  Keep the great and positive experience you're providing these young athletes. Ladd Mace, father of Jenna, Class of 2018, Wisconsin Dells.

I liked the stats and 'Coaches' Comments.'  Good competition and good coaching.- Ken Della, parent of Nick Della, Class of 2016, Waukesha Catholic Memorial.

Stats were very inaccurate. -Brookfield Central parent.  FCHEBL response: We regret any errors or omissions and any distress this may have caused.  We are leaning toward not publishing stats in the future. 

Thank you! - Heather Fetherston, mother of Parker Fetherston, Class of 2018, Jefferson.

Team work and competition. - Quinlan McDonald, Class of 2018, Elkhorn.

I like Coach Meyer's postive input. -Lisa Nelson, mother of Darren Nelson, Class of 2016.

Fundamentals are reinforced.  You can see the growth of the players throughout the course of the league. - Mark Bittmann, parent Bridget, Burlington Catholic Central.

This was a wonderful opportunity for my son.  I appreciate the consistent  education and confidence building for my son and his skills. Coaches were great. -Mat Wall, parent of Mat Wall, Class of 1916, West Allis, Nathan Hale.

Good structure. Good instruction. Good equal playing time.- Doug Oomens, parent of Courtney Oomens, Badger, Class of 2018.

Great kids, good officiating.  Keep up the good work!  Parent from University Lake School.

 

 We have tried other leagues and have found FCHEBL is by far the best.  They are truly invested in helping improve every player's game.  The league and all of the coaches gave our children an opportunity to grow not only as players but as people. My son is a senior and has played at FCHEBL since a freshman.  He had a great experience. Our daughter is a sophomore and wants to continue to play in the league. - Nancy Horn, mother of Zach, Class of 2014, and Morgan, Class of 2016, Winneconne.

 

 I like the level of competition, huge focus on getting All Conference and higher caliber players. -John Penney, parent of Jayla Penney, Class of 2015, Rockford Christian, Illinois.

 

"Kent is one of the best basketball minds in basketball.  He is a hard worker and very passionate about life and basketball.  I learned many life lessons from Coach Meyer.  He encouraged me to become a coach, and I am still coaching today." Mitch Muma 10/9/2013 Coach, teacher at Elm Creek Public Schools, NE.   

 

[I liked] that FCHEBL mixes kids together from all different high schools. - Mark Cincotta, Class of 2015, Jefferson.

Everyone gets an equal chance to play at a high level of competition.  [My coaches] always had positive things to say.  I felt very comfortable talking with them. - Erin Beeck, Class of 2014, Sheboygan Falls.

 

This was Becca's last fall session with the FCHEBL family.  She has played in your league for the last three years.  Those years were wonderful and will be looked back upon with a smile.  It is not often you find an organization based on faith and family.  You are truly a wonderful family and kudos to all of you.  We wish you continued success in the many years to come.

Bless you,  -Janet, Bill and Becca Skurski, Class of 2014, Honanegah, Illinois

The level of play was great.  Thanks for the opportunity. - Peggy Ranney, parent of Megan Ranney, Class of 2015, Lake Mills.

 

I liked the Top 5 Statistics.  It let me see where I compared to the rest of the players in the league.  -Jake Shore, Class of 2014, Menomonee Falls.

 

The extra coaching done before the team play [clinics] was helpful.  Positive atmosphere here.  Everyone helpful. Referees were good.  Level of players was great. Thanks so much for everything. -Glenda Szydlowski, mother of Rachel, Class of 2015, Wilmot.

 

I wanted to thank you for organizing and running such a wonderful league in Milwaukee.  Your entire family puts their hearts and souls into hosting this fall event.  It is somewhat bitter sweet this year, as our Sam is a senior.  But please know our family has very much enjoyed the FCHEBL the last 2 years!  I will continue to refer players to the FCHEBL who want to improve their game.

Abe had a wonderful experience last year at FCHEBL. He played for Coach Lance and grew in skill and confidence. He really grew up last fall because of FCHEBL and Coach Lance. Can’t say enough positives.

I hadn't taken the opportunity to thank you for helping Andrew (Somerville) and one of his teammates play in last fall's league.  It is a very worthwhile program.  My daughter Angie had played at Parker 1999-2002 and was involved in FCHEBL.  I knew it had been a well run program and was very glad that Andrew had the opportunity to play there also. 

I have told his coaches and now I'm telling you, ....thank you for the time you give to young athletes.  Basketball was the sport that kept our family going (after my husband’s sudden death in 2009) when it was difficult to even think straight.  It helped Andrew focus and set goals for himself.  So I thank you and the others involved for taking time for our kids.  You never know what type of impact you are making!

Thanks!

Thank you once again for finding a place for Trevor in your league. He had a great time last weekend and is looking forward to this weekend as well. He loves to play basketball and he enjoys it so much more when he is playing with the awesome line up of talent that you have brought to this league.  Look forward to seeing you and watching some good basketball tomorrow.

Respectfully,

Thank you for running such a great League.  Connor really enjoys the competition and the "team" attitude of sharing the ball and working together.  As you know, that is not always the case in these types of showcases.

Thanks again for the opportunity to promote Top Flight today. The girls were phenomenal, and two parents showed on the boys side. It was fun to work with the girls, and I think most of them took something positive from the brief workout. Take care, and God Bless!

Ajamu Olaniyan
Director, Top Flight Basketball 2011-12


I wanted to thank you for asking Ryan to participate in your league.  He had fun playing with some of the best players in the state.Sincerely,

I have really enjoyed your program, learned some new things and made some new friends.  I also wanted to thank you for giving me the opportunity to meet Ajamu Olaniyan, who put together a workout program for my High School Team.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play at this level and again I’m very sorry I cannot make it tomorrow.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the league that you put on this fall.  My son Daniel, while only 15, benefited greatly from the competition that was there. There were some great kids there as well. One that I specifically remember was a senior.  I think he was from East Troy , who took the time to share a few pointers with Daniel.  What a great gesture to a younger player. Daniel is already looking forward to registering again for 2012.

I was really impressed with the passion and enthusiasm that you exhibit whenever you are around the boys.  You really portray a positive influence on the boys.  The energy you show is infectious.  I relayed this to our varsity coach, Dan Leffel, when I talked to him last. Again thank you for running such a great program and I hope to hear from you soon, 

Rick Dahlke

First of all, I want to let you know that I have heard nothing but positives from parents about your Sunday league. The parents and players loved your enthusiasm and passion and your ability to teach the boys the game of basketball. We are so blessed that you make this opportunity for the players. 

Dan Leffel

Thanks again for coordinating the FCHEBEL league this fall.  My son (Marcus) really enjoyed the competition.  

Again, thanks for all that you do.
