"We are big fans of Dream Big Basketball Academy! Coach George and his staff coach with positive attitudes to give the kids confidence and push them to work hard and get better. Dream Big Basketball Academy is a class act. They follow their motto.....Dream Big Work Hard and Stay Humble. They helped my son prepare for his middle school tryouts and he made the team!"

"My husband and I drive almost an hour twice a week for our daughter to work with Coach George and his staff. Our experience with Dream Big makes the drive worthwhile. Coach George is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, patient, encouraging and passionate. He teaches commitment, teamwork and perseverance. He inspires and motivates everyone he encounters to push beyond his or her limits. We have seen a tremendous improvement in our daughter on and off the court since she has worked with Coach George. We highly recommend Coach George. He genuinely cares about helping people improve!!"
-- Venita Farmer, Parent
"Dream Big Basketball skills academies have been great for my son the past two years. The workouts are a great supplement for his regular season practices and to continue working on skills during the off season. I really appreciate the focus on fundamentals of dribbling, shooting, catching, positioning, footwork, strategy, etc. as well as high repetition of drills. My son almost always has a ball in his hands! Dream Big has been the foundation for my son's skill development."
-- Danny King
"I've had a great experience coaching and training with Dream. While coaching I had an opportunity to give back to younger players. I was able to teach them things I know and help them become better players. Coach George and I have also been training, focusing on my shooting mostly. Our sessions have benefited me tremendously. This program is awesome. I can't wait to come back next summer when my season is over!"
-- Ny Hammonds, former UNCC guard, now professional player in Russia
"Having worked our camp for a couple years, I have seen Coach George Holm in action. He has enthusiasm for the game. He knows the game. He understands how to teach it and make it fun. He will help your child become a better player and person."

"Hello! How are you? We are fantastic. We are honored to announce that Hannah made the school basketball team for 8th grade. We have seen tremendous improvements in her skill and knowledge in basketball since she has been apart of the Dream Big academies. She even notices her play skill level
is on the rise. We are so thankful for the flyer one day that we saw in Chick-fil-a that has opened the door for Hannah to continue her growth in basketball. Thanks for all you do for her and countless others everyday. Thanks for your consistent, fun, and awesome program. It is making a difference and changing lives. We are honored to have you in her life to help her on her journey in playing basketball. Who knows where it can take her. Nevertheless, when she arrives, she will have you to look back and thank for all that you've helped her to become and develop. Take care and we hope to see you really soon."
-- Herman and Stephanie Wilson, Parents
"Coach George did a great job helping our son. Coach has a great ability to quickly diagnose the problem and provide specific adjustments and drills to fix. Coach also has a great demeanor when working with players. If your looking for a coach to help solidify the fundamentals and then build on the fundamentals, Coach George is a great choice."
-- Irina, Parent
"I'm a huge fan of Dream Big Basketball clinics and camps. Using a variety of drills, George and Keri teach the kids the right way to play the game. It is refreshing to see a focus on fundamental things like shooting and ball handling. We are lucky to have them in the Lake Norman area."
-- Jeff Morgan
"I just wanted to send you a note about the wonderful job you did running the clinic. The last few years my daughter has participated in several basketball clinics but she got more out of your clinic than the others combined. We're lucky to have someone with your experience available to us here in Huntersville. As expected, your clinic was very organized and Sarah had a wonderful time and came home with more enthusiasm than when she left. I had to encourage her to attend but now she's asking when she can start your next camp."
--Eric Benjamin, Parent
"Coach George not only has the level of experience we are looking for, but he also communicates with all the kids in a manner that is both respectful as well as demanding. Finding that balance in athletics is extremely hard to do and it is truly his gift. He is not only a player of the game but a lifelong student as well. His wife mentioned to me once upon a time that the amount of research and energy he devotes to planning and executing practices is exactly why he is perfect in this roll. He has a passion for both the game on and off the court. As with most kids, you never really know what type of coaching method will work best. He has blended all coaching aspects into his coaching practice. Not only through demonstration but by using video and providing written material as well which is important for those which perhaps need to receive the information in a variety of ways before it sinks in. Our son is completely enjoying his time with Coach George and comes home excited to practice what he's learned. He has earned the respect of us and our son, what more could you ask for?"
"George I would like to thank you for your commitment to our AAU team this year. My son really developed skills and discipline under your direction. I look forward to him playing with you again next season."
