Never settle for mediocrity.... Be Elite
My name is Kaela Hodges, and I currently attend Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana and play on the women's basketball team. After graduating high school, my grandparents flew me out from Illinois to work with Coach Ben and Coach Jon. I woke up at the crack of dawn to get a two hour workout in at a local park, I volunteered to help out with the YMCA camp that Coach Ben directed (so that I could gain skills in teaching younger athletes the game of basketball), and after camp I got another workout in. Let me tell you! I dreaded waking up at 5:30 a.m. and going to these workouts, but at the end of the day I knew that I would be the one to grow, not only as an athlete but as a young individual as well. After working with Coach Ben and Coach Jon for two weeks, I flew back to Illinois and had an amazing freshman year at my junior college. I finished my freshman season just shy of averaging a double-double. Because I wanted to advance my skills, I had to come back to Arizona to put in more work so I could have a better sophomore season.
The summer after my freshman year I came back and brought my sister Errin along for the brutal, but worthy ride. We put in the work and returned back home to Illinois. Needless to say my sophomore year is when I got recruited by Butler's wbb head coach and I have been able to have basketball pay for all of my collegiate education.
What I am trying to say is that without the work that I put in with these amazing coaches, I could have been one tool short of completing my toolbox. So if you are questioning whether or not you want to work out with them, and be apart of the BE Elite program I say go for it. Just remember, the path to success is never easy. Hang in there and your work will pay off!
Thank you Coach Ben and Coach Jon for investing your time and sharing your knowledge with me. I greatly appreciate it.
My time spent training with Coach Ben and Coach Jon was very good. I enjoyed the workouts everyday. The workouts pushed me to become a better athlete in every area. I would definitely go back again and do the workouts. I would say training with you is very beneficial! Thank you for the time that you put in to help train.
