“​Billy and Jonathan put on a fantastic clinic for our players at Neuqua Valley.  The kids were exhausted after the workout, but absolutely loved it. The  players were much more confident in their shooting after the workout.  I believe Aim High was the start to a great summer by our players. “

“We were pleased to have Billy Lewis work with our players and coaches at camp this year at our shooting station. His discussion and demonstration of shooting mechanics was excellent, and applicable to all ages of boys and girls. He brought positive energy and we thank him for his help. We look forward to having him again next year.”

“Billy and Jonathan spoke at our camp this year and worked out our high school players in an individual session. They are great at what they do! They break down the game and give each player something that they can use in games to succeed. Our players benefited greatly. I either learn something new or reminded of a skill that I need to emphasize every time I see them speak.”

“Progressive Handling was an excellent session for our athletes and I would recommend it for players at all levels. It is a session providing players with ball handling fundamentals at its most detailed, broken down form. Coach Schneiderman and Coach Lewis have thought of all aspects of a player’s one-on-one game. I will be having the Aim High Clinic back for years to come!”

“Every team needs more instruction on shooting. Aim High Hoops did a great job of presenting the six principles of pure shooting. Billy Lewis did a great job of explaining their simplified progression system of basic skills to advanced skills (make shots-create shots and handle against anyone – break down anyone). Our girls worked hard, learned a lot, and talked about it many days later. The best part of their clinic is that after is all done you can buy their great DVD’s and review it later with your players. We did two clinics – Pure Shooting and Progressive Handling. We will do the other two next year! We had many parents thank us for bringing Aim High Hoops to Amboy.

-Mike McCracken, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach: Amboy Valley High School (IL)



“This was the third consecutive year we had Aim High Hoops work with us and have seen a lot of improvements in our guys’ pure shooting technique both during camp and throughout the seasons. We’ve also started incorporating their shooting workouts with our teams this summer which drives home the lessons taught.  Coach Lewis brings tons of knowledge and personality to the clinics which our guys always enjoy.  We look forward to working with them in the future!”

-Richard Borre, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: South Beloit High School (IL)

After working with the Aim High Staff for all three sessions I saw an immediate improvement in our players.  They were taking what they had learned and worked on and put them to use in summer league games.  The players themselves were impressed with how much they were able to take away from the sessions.  I would recommend working with Aim High and plan on bringing them back again.
-Joel Wild, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach: Warren High School (IL)

Thanks again for coming and running the 3 different camps for our girls program.  I instantly saw improvement with all of the girls during the sessions, and especially the last clinic.  It not only gave them the skills, but especially the confidence it takes to be an aggressive, outstanding scoring threat.  We had some summer league games right after your clinic, and we had girls hitting step-back 3’s, runners, and dribble jump shots that would hardly ever shoot before.  Now they all have the confidence in their abilities and are stepping up to the challenges I’m putting out towards them and the challenges you gave them as well.  It really was a night and day difference…you guys got them excited about what you were teaching and they are putting it into practice.  You also inspired some of the players to step up their workouts, and they have been shooting close to 500 shots daily.  I am truly amazed at how quickly they bought into what you taught them and how much confidence they gained from those two days.  We can’t wait to work with you again next year!!”

–Kristy Eckhardt, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach: Oregon High School (IL)


“I really enjoyed working with Aim High Hoops.  Coach Lewis and Coach Schneiderman did an excellent job working with members of my junior high and senior high basketball programs.  Their knowledge and love for the game was evident from the moment that camp began until the moment that it ended.   Their easy to understand explanations and their use of practical drills helped to develop and reinforce basic basketball fundamentals and advanced offensive skills.  I am convinced that this experience will have a positive impact on my players and program.”

–Craig Etheridge, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: Westmont High School (IL)



“Over the last two years, our players at Stillman Valley HS have had the priviledge or receiving instruction from the Aim High Hoops staff for both the Pure Shooting and, new this year, Progressive Handling Clinics. The Pure Shooting program has been beneficial in giving our players the tools for a successful shot, while the Progressive Handling clinic provided in-depth instruction in the area of ball-handling and incorporated those skills to game play. Every player who has participated in these clinics has walked away with a valuable and positive experience.”-2012

“The Aim High Hoops staff did a phenomenal job providing detailed instruction while breaking down what it takes to be a pure shooter. The progression drills are sequential and bring it all together for the motivated shooter.”-2011

“Thanks for coming out to Lisle High School last week. Our kids we’re energized about reaching their basketball goals. I loved the six shooting principles and he kids loved the way you taught them.”

-Mark LaScala, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach, Lisle High School (IL)


“WOW! What a great experience for all of us at St. Raymond! I can’t thank you enough for your knowledge, passion, enthusiasm, and hard work. The kids have never been pushed so hard and learned so much. Truly a wonderful experience.

Thank you for the DVD. It will be very helpful as I follow up your lessons with the kids. And I will wear the t-shirt with great pride.”

Jim Sherwood, 8th grade boys’ coach, St. Raymond Saints (Mt. Prospect, IL)


What other coaches are saying:

“I really enjoyed seeing my girls get so excited about shooting. We are trying a brand new system of playing the game and shooting well is the only way we are going to be successful. I think we have a great foundation your 6 Principles of Pure Shooting. Thank you for coming to our gym.”

Their explanations and demonstrations are well-organized, clear, and precise; I highly recommend their teaching program.”

It is obvious Coach Schneiderman and Coach Lewis put in a lot of time in producing this video. They use their expertise to present the shooting process from start to finish in a detailed yet easy to follow approach, through instruction and demonstration. I have seen many videos and presentations on how to shoot and teach shooting and in my opinion this is the best.”

“As a junior high and elementary level basketball coach, I can honestly say; the Aim High ball handling & shooting clinic provided clear and concise instruction for every age and skill level in attendance.  The simple to complex approach worked well!  Clinic instructors verbally explained and physically demonstrated all skills/techniques, and then provided ample practice time for all campers.  I would highly recommend the “Aim High” clinic to all coaches and parents looking to improve their players individual skill levels.”

-Coach Mark Donaldson, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach, Stephen Mack Middle School (IL)


We have a camp every summer and sometimes I think for the girls it’s nice to have someone from the outside come in and teach.  Your staff was very friendly and outgoing and the players felt comfortable asking questions and following the instruction.  Having a successful female on your staff also was great for the players to see and believe that hard work can get you ahead.  I think you put on a great clinic, spent the time wisely with little downtime and I know that every player benefitted from what you offered. Thanks much!

-Sue Eskola, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach: Wisconsin Heights High School (WI)


 “We had Aim High Hoops at our summer camp this year to bring in an added dimension to what we offer our campers.  Coach Lewis and Schneiderman brought in years of knowledge that was put on display and applied to our campers.  Our campers were taught the fundamentals and advanced aspects of shooting in an easy and effective way for all grade levels and all skill levels.  Their presentation was professional, outgoing, and informative for the beginning or highly skilled basketball player.  Every one of our campers walked away a better basketball player after the session.  Coach Lewis and Schneiderman are some of the best coaches I have been around and even better people.”

-Ryan Rebsom, Head Men’s Basketball Coach: Rockford College (IL)

“Billy and Jonathan do a great job of breaking down the perfect jump shot. The step by step process keeps it simple and easy to remember, while giving each individual camper the confidence needed to become a great shooter. I highly recommend these coaches if you want to take your game to the next level.”

-Andrew Weber, Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach: Rockford College (IL)



“We have changed 50% of ALL our future practice time in season—to continue learning and practicing the 6 Principles!”

“The girls now feel that practice is FUN. Because it is going in more often and effortlessly! Thank You”

“Thank you for the Great Day for our Team!!!! The varsity asked for 3 hours in the gym tomorrow morning to practice what they learned today!!!! You 3 had the impact I expected and beyond!!”

–Gerry Kenny, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach: The Willows Academy (IL)



“SOBO Basketball would like to thank Coach Lewis and Aim High Hoops for a terrific shooting clinic. Coach Lewis is a seasoned teacher of the game and clearly enjoys working on developing young players’ shooting technique, mental toughness, and goal-setting. As technique was taught and drills were implemented, our coaching staff observed significant improvement with the shooting percentages of players by the end of the two-hour clinic. As a Varsity Basketball coach who puts effort towards developing all levels of our program, I highly recommend having Aim High Hoops come to your school.”

–Mat Parker, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: South Beloit High School (IL)

“This high-level shooting clinic was top notch. The instructors talked straight at the players and really got their attention. I would really recommend the clinic to those who want to get better at shooting and basketball in general. Thanks a million.”

–Pat Ambrose, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: Stevenson High School (IL)

“Our players really enjoyed the Aim High Shooting Camp. It was two hours of instruction, hands-on instruction from great shooters and had plenty of shots for each player.”

–Dean Bentley, Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: Alden-Hebron High School (IL)

“Very well-organized. Breakdown of shooting was very precise.”

-Kevin Kunkel, former Head Boys’ Basketball Coach: Pecatonica High School (IL)

“Sound principles of shooting! Shooting makes up for a world of sins in basketball. My daughter certainly learned a lot.”

-Bob Becker, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach, Morton High School (IL)

“I caught about the last 40 minutes or so and saw you teaching some great individual shooting drills, i.e. spin-back catch shoot and pivot (left and right) shoot.  Also appreciated the jump-shot drills, as it sometimes appears that we’ve regressed back to the fifties with all the set-shooting (or rather lack of jumping on shots) we see these days. You have a great staff on board sharing the love of basketball and what seems to be the lost art of shooting!  What could be better?”

-Colleen Henze, Head Girls’ Basketball Coach, Eastland High School (IL)

What parents are saying:

“It was a great clinic. Very well-run 2 hours. Do you have any weeklong camps in the summer?”

“Just wanted to say thanks for a Great camp last Sat. Your attention to detail was outstanding and my son really enjoyed himself. My son has been to ALL of the camps in this area, and Aim High Hoops easily stacks up well with all of those. We were very impressed and hope to see you again. Continued success to you Coaches.” 

What players are saying:

“I really liked that they took the time to work individually with me until I was doing it right.”

“I have never been taught with a system, and the clinic taught me how to use a system to better my shooting percentage.”

“Everything was explained thoroughly and I felt like they really wanted us to improve.”


The clinic was a “confidence-builder”
