“By working with Troy, my daughter has developed very solid ball handling skills, as well as, a great looking shot and she now understands how to use a move to set up another. Everyone tells us how much she has improved and it must be true . . .(First Team All-SIAC, Second Team All-Metro & Third Team All-State Honors, Hoosier Basketball Magazine's Top 100)…she started on the varsity her freshman year. Her training has enabled her to gain valuable insight into the ‘Big Picture’ and she now knows what she must do to achieve her goals of playing at the next level. (College Basketball Scholarship Recipient, 2007 NAIA Division II National Basketball Champion)” – Andrea Fichter / Indiana Wesleyan University (Evansville, IN)

“Troy has helped me develop tremendously…especially with my shooting and ball-handling.  Numerous people have told me that I have a great shot with great form.  With his training I have developed greater confidence in my skills and as my confidence has grown I have become a better leader on the court.  Troy’s training techniques are balanced between work, competition and fun in a comfortable atmosphere. (SIAC Honorable Mention, SIAC 2nd team, All Metro Team, Selected to the Indiana Junior All Stars, Ohio Premier Tournament All Star Team, Academic All City, Sectional Championship, receiving recruiting letters by various DI, II, III and NAIA schools). ” – Ashley Klass / McKendree University (Evansville, IN)

“Troy works with you all over the court, teaching you the correct shooting fundamentals, working with you on your speed, dribbling, individual moves, and helping you understand when and where to take the shot...once the adjustments have been made you can see and feel the improvements, and you know you've taken the step to the next level. I have made tremendous improvement. My shot has improved dramatically. My free throw shooting, three point and jump shot, and my jumping ability have all improved.” – Clayton Quisenberry / Professional Country Music Singer and Record Executive (Graham, KY)

“When my son was interviewed in the paper after scoring his 1000th point, he was asked who his greatest influence in basketball was and he said, 'Troy Sowders.' We are thankful to Troy for his teaching which allowed my son to achieve his goals in life up to this point (1,000+ career points, School Record [11-12] in Three Point Field Goals, ranked 22nd in state history for three point field goals made [223], First Team All-Conference, Third Team All-State and First Team All- Southern Illinois, College Career - NCAA Division III National Champion in back-to-back seasons [2008 and 2009], 11th in school history for 3 Point field goals made, Shot 40% from 3 Point Range)...and what he stands for! ” – Mike Knepper (Newton, IL)

“Training sessions were based on my strengths and weaknesses…and I was taught to understand the game. I gained a sense of court awareness, decision making and an increased ability to handle the ball. As a result I received a college basketball scholarship (High School: 1,000+ career points, Record [11-12] in 3Pt Field Goals, ranked 22nd in state history for 3pt field goals made [223], 1st Team All-Conference/All- Southern Illinois, 3rd Team All-State, College Career: NCAA Division III National Champion [2008 and 2009], 11th in school history for 3Pt field goals made, Shot 40% from 3 Pt Range).” – Caleb Knepper / Washington University of St. Louis (Newton, Illinois
