Chris Ward coached both of our boys to a whole new level in their high school basketball career. His instruction, direction, and encouragement has brought out the best in them, both on an off the court. He was instrumental in helping to guide us through the college recruiting process. Importantly, once our oldest son earned a spot on a competitive college team, he was very well prepared for the rigor of the game at that level due to Coach Ward's disciplined and highly effective approach.

The CWB program is truly a family and Coach Ward loves us all like he loves his son and daughter.
