" Playing for Coach Stacey is not just a basketball team. It's way more. One big family! And once you join the family, not only your skills improve, your character matures. That's what Coach Stacey did for me. Before then I had a huge attitude with my coaches and teammates. The coaches and teammates helped me overcome it. I'm a better basketball player and person because of it. We all have each others back. I luv the SB girls and coaches. I was a post, now I'm a guard/Wing."

"The Academy has done many things for my game. Its made me a smarter and better player. The biggest change in my game has been my attitude. I have developed a better shot and I'm more controlled on the court. Coach Stacey has not only developed me on the court, but in life as well."

I first met Stacey after he had invited my son to come try out at a team practice. His whole approach and pure honest interest in my son’s game had me hooked from day one. And of course, my son was enamored. He lays a foundation with each and every kid that he coaches. They are eager to learn from him and stay focused in what they need to do. Above all they remember the fundamental game of basketball to the core. He coaches on an individual level and on a team level covering all aspects of the sport. He trains his players to become better in all components of the game. He maintains an unconditional and supportive non-judgmental view, regardless of their background, lifestyles, and aspirations.. He ensures his relationships are successful and he continually assesses their personal goals in the game, education, and life. He is a true inspiration as a coach, a mentor and a friend.

"Coach Stacey, I appreciate your help with the growth of our game. I would love to come out and see your program and support it anyway I can. "

"Holy smokes, I have been trying to get my son to shoot not throw on his shot for years and in basically ½ a session he is doing it! I am very impressed with your overall training ability, especially getting him to break a habit and doing it correctly. "

"Please let Stacey know she was motivated by her workout on Saturday. It was also helpful for me be see some of the work first hand. She's thriving with Stacey's direction."

"My son is enjoying your sessions and it appears his shot is improving greatly since working with you. Thank you for your commitment to him we thankful for your instruction."

"I just want to let you know that we really appreciate what you doing for my daughter. The most important thing is she trust you and that is giving her a lot of confidence. Now, she is taking everything more serious."

"I hope your son enjoys and benefits from his experience with Stacey as much as my son. I am not exaggerating when I say "Stacey is the best!". We didn't even get a chance to talk about how Stacey has helped me as a parent support my son in his love of basketball. "

Wendy G.

"My daughter really enjoyed the last session with Coach Stacey. I usually don't hover around practices or workout, after this one, she was so excited- the only thing that bothered her is that i didn't watch! I like Stacey's approach and will certainly refer people to him."

Neil C.

​"How lucky she - we - are to have hooked up with you. Of all the people who my kids have come into contact with through the years - teachers, coaches, people at church, parents of friends - none has been so clearly and completely a positive influence. You have a wonderful spirit that engulfs everything about and around you. As I mentioned on the phone, Stacey, it takes less than a couple minutes of watching and listening to you when you're working with kids to see how happy you are to be doing what you're doing. "

Fred M.
Bellingham, WA

"Hey Stacey, Ben and I would like to see you this week, if possible. He's headed off to play ball for UPS, with an academic scholarship. You are a huge, huge part of that success, and we would like to say thank you."

"There's not enough words to describe BDA. I feel if I hadn't joined I wouldn't have had a chance to play in college. After meeting coach Stacey I feel my chances have gone up. My skills have drasticly changed from a post player to a point guard and a leader. Before joining BDA I wouldn't shoot or dribble to save my life. But that has totally changed. My confidence has soared from the help of training, coaching, and teammates. Everything from SB has greatly helped."

"What Coach Stacey has done for my game has been Phenomenal! I was a post and I'm a true guard now. I have learned so much about playing basketball thatI am physically and mentally ready for whatever thrown at me. when I first joined BDA I was OK. Now, after two years people say I am an exceptional player and athlete. But I know, and Coach stacey has told all of us, we have a long ways to go to reach our FULL potential."

" BDA has made me a better player in both skills and confidence. When I first came to SB I didn't have a lot of basketball skills. Now I can do whatever I put my mind to. If I didn't come to BDA I would still be playing on my school team with no confidence or skills. thanks Coach Stacey!"

Feedback from Reno Academy Parents
My name is Nyaabila Apambire. Coach Stacey has developed me from a player that just played on my athletic ability. I have received a jump shot jumping at least 10x higher that I shot before. I have also traveled to the Seattle academy and played with them in national tournaments / showcases. I have went to college unofficially meetings with college coaches with Coach Stacey. There is so much more BDA has to teach me and I can't wait.

Our kids have come a long way in such a short period of time with BDA. We are very impressed with the individual attention amd tje love for the sport. Thank you for all you do. 

Marvin and Rachel
My kids have learned tremendous ball handling skills and are so pumped up about the game! BDA is a positive environment and also a place my kids have clearly gone to the next level in a short period of time.

 K Coombs
My son Sean is not only learning the fundamentals of basketball, but essential life lessons as well. It's money well spent. I'm very happy with the results. 

S. Sear
Carson City
The first thing my child noticed from this academy is there aren't any favorites. The coaches work with each individual child focusing and fixing their errors and progressing their abilities. My child has played basketball for 4 years and is finally learning proper shooting and ball handling techniques as well as learning and running the different plays at different positions.

A Williams
My son has played for the other two programs in Reno. Coach Stacey and BDA is by far the best program in the area. He is a great teacher and very patient. Coach Stacey has integrity and is a true professional.
