The organization pushed me to develop as a whole player and exposed me to more structural format training. My most valued take away was my progression as an overall player and person. The lifelong bonds and sense of belonging to a family that is so supportive transformed me in ways that are not measurable. WIthout this experience I truly do believe my love for the game may have been tarnished for life.

Coach Lez and her coaching staff have a unique ability to see each and every player not only for their skill but for their potential and their ability to develop that potential. She sees in you what you may not see in yourself and helps you train, develop and play in ways you didn’t know you could. Coach Lez creates a cohesive, supportive team environment from a group of incredibly diverse individuals from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. I continue to coach young girls and special olympics basketball in an effort to give back to the community some of what I gained from MEGA.
