Inspirational words from players and parents.

“Mid-Michigan Excel has been a wonderful experience. Not only do the coaches focus on improving the basketball skills of our athletes they encourage maturity and leadership on and off the court. They focus on the whole athlete, helping them to achieve their very best!!”


“We have had two of our daughters play in the Excel program over the past nine years. Excel exemplifies the values and goals to compete and succeed on and off the court.”

“• Mid-Michigan Excel is so much more than an AAU organization, they are a family! A family on and off the court during and even after the AAU season! They focus on growing not just their team for wins, but each player as an individual. They truly want their players to be leaders on and off the court!”


“We were fortunate to discover Mid-Michigan Excel four years ago, and we have had two daughters in the program.I feel that one of the main strengths of Mid-Michigan Excel has been to provide our daughters with a lot of practice and playing time on a competitive AAU team. The players in Mid-Michigan Excel come from good basketball programs all around the Mid-Michigan area.

This has given our daughters a chance to make friends from other schools and to support these other girls as some of them have gone on to play for high school state championships and in college. In Mid-Michigan Excel, every player has a pretty equal opportunity to play. And through these basketball experiences, our daughters became better players, better leaders, and better teammates.

More simply put, they became better people. Our youngest daughter now has gotten a couple of offers to play basketball in college. We are excited for that, but we will miss being a part of Mid-Michigan Excel.”


“Mid Michigan Excel provided my daughter with the self-confidence and ability to pursue her love of basketball at the next level. The coaching she received turned into support for her both on and off the court. The positive and competitive atmosphere nurtured friendships, life skills, work ethic and memories to last a lifetime. Coach Don’s Excel basketball program resulted in a little girl’s dreams coming true and helped prepare my daughter for life in college and beyond.”


“Being a part of the Excel program changed my life forever. When playing with Excel, I knew I had a coach that believed in me and teammates that had my back. It is because of the program that Coach Don built that I am playing at the next level, Adrian College. I will forever be thankful for the support and lifelong skills Excel provided me with.”
