I would like to highly recommend Flight Squad Basketball
If you are looking for a fun, family oriented, inspirational… event for your community! I am the mentoring coordinator for Shenandoah Schools.

Your process was easy, your event checklist was perfect and the team was top-notch.
Thanks for helping to make such a wonderful family fun… event! We had never done a fundraising event like this and we didn’t know what to expect. Your process was easy, your event checklist was perfect and the team was top-notch. The posters, tickets and online ticket selling platform were fantastic and worked seamlessly. They very much helped us promote the event within our community. The players were wonderful and interacted with the audience a lot. They were so great with the kids! The line for autographs and pictures stretched across the gym! All of the feedback we have received from the game has been positive. Thanks again for everything.

It’s a great mix of high-energy engagement, some silly antics, positive messages and good fun.
The assembly itself was very well organized and thoroughly enjoyable… from start to finish. The gym was hopping when I arrived at 9:30am with the squad warming up for the 10:00am assembly. The kids walking through the halls heard the lively music and saw the basketball tricks being performed and it really created an exciting energy in the school. When they all arrived in the gym, it was non-stop fun from start to finish. The teachers loved being in the spotlight and so did the selected students in the challenges. It was great to have all the guys enter individually and greet the students with high and low fives. Some moving through the audience to make sure the kids in the back rows got attention too. It’s a great mix of high-energy engagement, some silly antics, positive messages and good fun. The personal stories were truly touching and I saw two students leave the audience in tears because they were so moved by the players and their lives – the storytelling was that good! The assembly was topnotch from start to finish and we look forward to booking you again soon!

Flight Squad needs to be in every school! We want more of Flight Squad!
You know what they say about “Best kept secrets?” Well,… we’re very glad that our PTA discovered this one! Flight Squad coming to our school was such an amazing experience for all of our kids and the grown-ups alike. The players’ stories and messages about being positive, having confidence, never giving up, having mental toughness, and against all types of bullying fell right into line with our building focus. We want our kids to be prepared for college, careers, the world of work, and successful living! We also want every person in our school community to not only feel respected by others, but to also show respect for others. The message that Flight Squad brought to us was exactly what we needed. Oh yeah, and it was totally exciting, entertaining, interactive and funny! Staff members, students and visitors who were fortunate enough to be in the building that day talked about Flight for the remainder of the school day. Throughout both assemblies, we saw the kids’ faces light up with excitement and heard their screams and cheering at times, and then at other times we saw deep thinking. Staff members shared throughout the day how grateful they were for this experience and how the players seemed to pick just the right students to participate as volunteers…the ones who really needed it! A visiting teacher was absolutely ecstatic to be in our building for this assembly and agreed that Flight Squad needs to be in every school! We want more of Flight Squad!” Read more “Flight Squad needs to be in every school! We want more of Flight Squad!”
Their message of hope is spot on for our youth as they are currently living an incarcerated life
Thank you so much for scheduling The FLIGHT SQUAD assembly… performance for Lawrence Gardner High School in the Kansas Juvenile Correction Complex. The assembly was wonderful for our youth and our staff. It was great to hear us all cheer and laugh together as they performed some amazing basketball skills that also involved some of our kids on the court. It is always rewarding to see our kids just have some fun. They LOVED it! Their message of hope is spot on for our youth as they are currently living an incarcerated life. Our students listened intently as the FLIGHT SQUAD shared personal stories of their struggles and life situations they grew up in that many of our youth are currently experiencing. Their message of loving and respecting oneself and having the determination to make a difference through education and choices was well received. Principal Steve Backman shared with me that one of our students has visited with him about how inspired he is from the message of making a difference. He feels like he needs to make a difference by sharing his personal story like the Flight Squad does. He will be graduating in June and has asked about speaking at the June graduation to share his story of hope.
