CP3 has made an incredible impact on my 11-year-old son, who dreams of an NBA future. In just one month, his skills have sharpened and he's learning new things every week. We're seeing this pay off on the court, in his games, and in his confidence. The development team are encouraging, challenging, and great motivators and role models. We are so pleased, happy and grateful to be a part of CP3 Basketball Academy and HIGHLY recommend them!

This is a great basketball program. The workouts challenge my kids but don't make them want to quit. The trainers are great and use appropriate language around the kids. Management is terrific.

The staff is passionate, hands on, efficient, down to earth & love the kids! Family atmosphere & grade A development balance out nicely for a beginner with hopes of becoming elite. Last but not least they work on character & morals which ultimately translate to our kids being coachable & good people overall

Exceptional program with a strategy that focuses on the long-term development of athletes, beginning with a strong foundation in the fundamentals and seeing athletes through to the competitive level. Character development is another piece of the program. The staff is wonderful. We love being a part of the CP3BA family!

Our boys are loving Academy. As parents, we are grateful for the staff and developers who are welcoming, encouraging, motivating and helpful. The kids look forward to coming every chance they get! We do wish CP3 was closer to home- Davie County- so we could participate more! We’d love to have you come “over the river” and we know lots of folks will agree!

A coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime. CP3 has the coaches I want my kid to be around for skill development and character. Very informative and well organized with plenty of coaches.

Awesome place! The coaches are incredible! My son has shown improvement and his confidence has grown as well.

The developers are great at what they do. They are not just training your child body and sharpening their skills. They are also sharing life lessons. My favorite time is when the workout ends and the developers have a heart to heart talk with the kids and most of the times it's something that I have been trying to get across to my son and it just gets reinforced when it's come from a another source like Coach Mike and others.

Great developers. Real, down to earth, magnanimous, driven, genuine, encouraging, positive, and real. Wait, I already said that! Really awesome atmosphere with great basketball and life mentoring. There is a spark in that gym that can wake up the hooper in anyone. We are very lucky to have the advantage of CP3 in our community and my kids seem to grow as better individuals in body and mind each and every time they attend. Coach Mike Russel and Coach John Adams and everyone who assists are the best. Lucky for us!

Oh how I wish this facility was closer to us so we could take advantage of it on a regular basis. My son has participated in several camps and compared to others, this is the best! The people here know their stuff and exhibit professionalism and enthusiasm from beginning to end. They are great at what they do and seem to enjoy doing it. I appreciate that they also incorporate lessons in good sportsmanship and work ethic on top of great skills and drills training. Thanks, CP3!

My Son Jay has improved so much he's only in 5 grade playing on a 6th -7th grade AAU team Here in Greensboro (NETS) I'm so glad CP3 Academy is here in Greensboro!
James Warren April 12, 2018
Our Son has taken advantage of the private lessons and Skills & Drills classes and has made a great improvement in his basketball game this season. He learns something new with every visit and looks forward to working out with the Developers each week. We are very happy with our CP3 experience and appreciate all of the Staff and Developers as well as their commitment to helping these kids learn and grow!

The Developers are excellent. My child just started with CP3 and is learning how to play basketball. She struggles but a Developer will jump right in and help her

It is rare for me to give 5 stars, but in this case 5 may not be enough! The CP3 Basketball Academy far exceeded my expectations. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if Chris Paul himself were there. This program has so many excellent qualities. In short, well worth the experience!
Now for the longer explanation...First of all I have a 12 year old daughter. There were only a few girls in the mix. My child has played basketball with boys before but this time was VERY different. She normally has to fight to be noticed and is not necessarily treated like the boys. CP3 Basketball Academy made it a point to treat ALL of the kids with respect and fairness. They were divided up in groups and placed with others of the same skill level. Every child had a ball the whole time. They always had something to do. The instruction was very clear. The girls felt like they were a part of the team.
The "developers" were respectful and respected. They worked with the kids and helped them on an individual level when needed. They offered encouragement and positivity throughout the training.
The facility is immaculate. The court was very nice and had plenty of equipment for the kids. The bathroom was very clean and inviting. There were fully stocked vending machines. There is also a waiting area with a television in the lobby if you need to step away.
Overall the experience is amazing. They offer a free session so that you can test it out. I would urge you to try it. I do not think you will be disappointed.
My daughter is very hard to impress. She said she enjoyed it so much she wishes she could go every single day! In one hour she mastered the basic understanding of basketball. We have been trying to get her to really get it for a few years. This program was like an "aha" moment for her. She has participated in many developmental programs and this by far is the absolute best!

My son Clay just joined and after two weeks of practice Clay is more focused in school work, rushing home to do homework before practice and eating two burgers before practice!!! Thanks Julian and all the coaches for being excellent role models and taking care of my boy
Kinder Lynn December 5, 2017
No judgment on the court. All kids receive the same attention. Developers/Coaches are attentive, firm, but still remain fun!!! We love it!!
Nunez Keya November 30, 2017
Manu loves going here. He's improved his game so much since joining in August. All the Coaches are fantastic, they make it fun for the kids and help to teach them valuable life lessons while learning the game at the same time.
Tina Jacobs November 11, 2017
I love the fundamental of their training. My grandson has been going since June and I can see some improvements in his skills that we're trying to build by the time he reaches middle school.
He's not playing any sports now but this training will help him when he reach middle school. The coaches are outstanding!.
Joyce Dukes August 26, 2017
“Thank you and your team for the well planned event this past Saturday with Chris Paul. Alex was extremely excited and impressed with Chris Paul provided feedback on his skills. Plus, this attitude and moral booster will flow into his school work. He is fully aware that school is first and his love for basketball will add icing on the cake. We are happy to see a Winston-Salem native come back to the area and establish an environment (CP3) that thrives for positive attitudes and physical fitness.”
Karen and James Hines August 20, 2017
My grandson Amari has really improved in his ball skills. He even practice at home what he learns at CP3. The good thing is I don't have to ask him to.

My son Jacob has been going to the academy since May and is also been attending all the summer camps, as well as had a private personal one on one training session with the developers...They are phenomenal.. today we had my sons 11th birthday party there from 1 to 3, and it was fantastic...I cant thank them enough for making my son feel so special today..I highly recommend anyone looking to have a bday party to try them out..They host the entire party with pizza, games, obstacle courses etc and as the parent, you can actually enjoy the festivities with your child because they handle the whole party...CP3 has helped my son so much both on and off the basketball court...Its so amazing that they have something like this year round to help keep our kids grounded...They have had a huge impact on our lives..Just want to thank Julian, Michael Gaskins, Coach John, Brittany and Jasmine for not only today at the bday party but for all they do for my son and the community...You guys helped me make his dream come true today and since attending CP3 Jacob has grown so much both on and off the basketball court.

CP3 is by far one of the greatest organizations around. The coaches are at the top of their game. They truly care about the kids and genuinely want to teach their love of the game and skills to the players. We have been there for several months now and our daughters skills and confidence have soared. I am thankful for everything in regard to CP3! CP3 is now a noun, verb, and adjective in our household. I'm glad our daughter is apart of something so wonderful!
MC Kusnic July 2, 2017
Was really impressed with the facility and it's amenities. Friendly staff, and state of the art training equipment. Would highly recommend CP3 Basketball Academy to any type of athlete that's wanting to take their game to the next level.

My youngest son, Freemon, loves the camps as well as the regular program. They develop basketball skills, character, and focus on academic achievement. They focus on the whole person, not just athletics.
