The one thing that I really noticed about him is he realizes everyone has room for improvement including himself so he is willing to put in the extra work and that can carry over to a very successful person and player. I’ve seen him grow as a player so I can only imagine the things that he has done to help the young kids in his area. Imad is the true definition of the saying “hard work pays off.”

ChelseaAUBRY“It’s great to see a camp like the adidas Top 40 Camp, which brings together the best players from each region. They are able to learn from some of the best coaches but most importantly train against the best in their respected area. Having someone like Imad running these programs is such an advantage for the Tri-City region. He has played at every level and played with and against some of the best players in the world. He just has so much to offer to the younger generation of basketball players!”

– Chelsea Aubry, London Olympian 12′, Canadian Womens National Team

It is without hesitation that I would recommend him to all looking to have his service.”

Imad works very hard to secure the best talent and the camp is run with great efficiency and professionalism. This is a great opportunity for young players from the area to create a name for themselves. I really like what Imad is doing with the camp and I see it becoming a prestigious event for many years.

Vosper coaching“I had the pleasure of working with Imad at his Tri-City Top 40 camp for Women during the summer of 2013. I find Imad to be dedicated and passionate about basketball and about sharing his skills and experiences with young people in our communities. Imad ran a very professional camp with guest speakers and a high quality learning environment that kept the camp participants active and engaged during the day. The success of any camp is directly related to the leadership of the camp and this camp was excellent.”

-Kurt Vosper, Canadian Centre Performance Coach

maxresdefault“The Top 40 Camp helped me a lot in terms of exposure. There was media and recruiting services there plus AAU coaches too. All you had to do was showcase your skills and they would find you. Skills wise, the camp showed me a bunch of drills that I never knew about. I could then use those same drills to practice by myself to improve my game. Overall, I really liked the camp and whoever is invited I recommend you attend.”

– Nedim Hodzic, Camp Alumni 2013, University of Waterloo

“As both a parent and a coach with local rep basketball, I encouraged my daughters and players who received invites to Imad’s Adidas Tri-city Basketball camp. I can’t say enough great things about both Imad and his program available to local basketball players. They were put through some rigorous workouts and skill development that provided opportunity to not only test or improve their ability, but also showcase them to local and regional coaches involved in high level basketball. It is obvious that Imad is committed to building a platform for local players who show interest in taking their game to a higher level. Imad shows this during not only the weekend session but also in the continued communication he has with players and families long after the weekend is over keeping in touch, providing encouragement and using his contacts to make connections for players looking to take their game to the next level! We can’t wait to see what this years camp brings to the table.”

-Chris Dennis, Parent/MMG coach – Guelph Knights
