Out here in southwest Littleton there is a sharp shootin’, floor divin’, talk jivin’, scoop makin’, earth shakin’, fire eatin’ crew of ballers known as the Dakota Ridge 4th grade girls basketball team and we just WON our regular league championship by going UNDEFEATED–10 and 0 to be exact.
How’d they do it? Well, they come to my group a lot and learn dazzling, death-defying skills and they play really, really HARD. We lead the league in floor burns and collectively are known as a walking bruise.
Tom Doyle and I take no bows mainly because we can’t bend over and still get back up so all praise and props go to the ten girls and here they IS.
Oh, and a quick clip of Cheyenne Huber (3rd grader) finishing with the left hand.

Onto championship tournament week. Had six of them for shooting yesterday so I think we’ll hit our free throws, he prayed. Good luck, Eagles. Fly high!


Here’s a pic of Amy Holland, a frosh at Mountain Vista, coming off a game against Thunderridge where she got 12 points and seven boards as a varsity starter. She is dribbling strongly with her left hand. Her Mom, Jill, sent me the picture and her acknowledgement for the hours and years she worked on her left hand in my gym.

Oh, by the way, Amy can REALLY shoot the rock.


Starting March 6th and continuing through November tryouts, I am holding skill workouts for HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS ONLY.
We will go every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4-5 before my regular group sessions.
We will work on ball-handling, shot creation, passing, and shooting during the sessions. And we will scrimmage a lot. It is critical to maintain and hone skills ALL THE TIME. The only way you will improve, stave off competition and earn playing time is to be BETTER THAN THE NEXT PERSON. High school and club basketball is tough sledding and making your mark there comes with a price: HARD WORK!
If you aren’t working to get better you can be sure someone else is. Use my gym in the “off-season” months to improve. I’ve worked with thousands of varsity players over these many years and about eighty of my kids have played in college.
Cost for a month of high school training is $100. If you sign up mid-month you still get a full 30 days of training. For instance you sign up on March 6th you get until April 6th. There will be 12-14 sessions every month for the next eight months.
Or you can drop-in for $25. If you like you can stay for my regular group as well.

I will hold my yearly basketball camp the weeks of June 5th and June 12th at Summit Ridge Middle School.
Their will be four sessions:
Session one–9-11:30 week of the 5th
Session two–12-2:30 week of the 5th
Session three –9-11:30 week of the 12th
Session four–12-2:30 week of the 12th
Come to any or all. Many kids make a day of it and do all four sessions. You can mix and match days. Cost is $125 per session with siblings only $100.
That’s 12 and a half hours of skills per session. You’ll be amazed at the progress you’ll make in a week!
I call it basketball immersion. Come with your present skill level and come out with a game worth talking about.
Sign up here.



I am getting a lot of new kids every week at the gym. I want to thank everyone for recommending my program to all your bball loving friends and neighbors.
Playoffs are not far off. Isn’t it a good idea to get some extra time in the gym to prepare? A few more made shots here and there could get you to the next round. Crossovers, Kobe scoops, stepbacks, Max moves and a plethora of other ankle-breaking maneuvers are yours for the asking and taking.
Go to battle with some piercing arrows in your quiver instead of wet noodles.
Group is fast moving and hyper competitive. Get on the Edge train and don’t get off until skill call!

Everyone could use a Handyman  right?  Well, I’ve got just the solution for you for those projects that you’ve been putting off all year.  Now it’s time to start the New Year off with some things checked off of your to-do list. My stepson John Huber, Cheyenne’s Dad is just launching his Handyman business—FIXED.  I mean truthfully, he has been doing this for 10 years, but has finally made the leap to actually brand and market his incredible services.  John can tackle any project no matter how big or small and provides professionalism, customer service and state of the art work. Here is a list of some of the work he does:
  • Demolition
  • Framing
  • General Carpentry
  • Lighting
  • Bathroom Remodel
  • Window Covering Installation
  • Floor Covering Installation
  • Landscaping-including pond creation & repair
  • Tree and stump removal
Just to mention a few….
Here is a link to his facebook page.
 I have his business cards with me, so hit me up at Group, or contact me directly and I’ll put you in touch with John.  He is currently doing a complete remodel of a rental property and it is amazing. My house would be in shambles without John.
Here is a picture of the pond he built.

I just dropped my first novel PEOPLES CHOICE which you can find on Amazon. It is a comic mystery set in the fictional town of Peoples Arizona. PC has a baffling whodunit; big, laugh out loud laughs, barmy, eccentric characters and an intrepid, albeit reluctant and somewhat out of his depth hero, Jud Barber, a callow highway patrolman whose life gets real complicated in his sleepy burg.
Warning: it is not for kids. It contains adult themes and colorful language.
If you are a reader who enjoys a compelling, breathless yarn or just wants to get some insight into what makes Mike tick (good luck with that), treat yourself to a copy of PEOPLES CHOICE and you will not regret it. 
If you think Mike (I’ve found myself referring to myself in the third person lately–I don’t consider myself a big deal–not yet anyway) is pretty funny in his newsletters and demonstrates playful, side-splitting banter in the gym, you are in for a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL of wit and keen insight in Mike’s debut novel (FULL DISCLOSURE I have penned twenty-five screenplays–I am hardly a neophyte). Mike can turn a peerless phrase at the drop of a hat not that I’ve dropped any lately, hats not phrases. The phrases flow like the Amazon River.
Enough badinage: hark to Amazon (the wholesaler not the river) and one click will change your outlook on life. Mike needs your affirmation to say nothing of your $4.99.
