I really appreciate Coach Cliff and all of the time and effort he has put in to help me become a better basketball player. I enjoy the workouts and he helps me improve each time I train with him. He’s always teaching me new skills. He has helped me become more confident with my ball handling along with improving my shot. He has taught me how to react to different game situations.

I am pleased to write a testimonial as both an educational leader with the Port Huron Schools and as a father of a student athlete.

Mr. Cliff Thomason and his team at the Athletic Factory provide invaluable resources and services to the youth of Port Huron and the greater Blue Water Area. Cliff truly has a love for our youth and it is his passion to help them grow as people, students, and athletes.

Cliff has been training my daughter in basketball for the last 3 years. He has helped her skill level and confidence improve greatly. Thank you Cliff for being such a great mentor and advocate!

I am so grateful to have such a place as the Athletic Factory. It has provided me with SAT prep and skills training. It is because of the Athletic Factory that I developed the skills and confidence to play at the next level. Coach Cliff and Coach Stewart spend endless hours in the gym, always working to bring the best out of student athletes. They are dedicated to ensuring the success of student athletes from all areas.

The Athletic Factory creates opportunities and HOPE for children in the community. Whether it is tutoring, mentoring, strength building, or skills training, children in the community walk out of the Athletic Factory better people. The Athletic Factory promotes strong values and life skills that will have lasting impact, beyond high school. This organization helps children in the community embrace their potential both academically and athletically, fostering confidence and empowering each and every child. I have had the privilege to witness the promise the Athletic Factory has provided through my children’s classmates AND my own children. The mission of this organization is a immeasurable blessing to this community!!!

The Port Huron area is very fortunate to have The Athletic Factory and 2 dedicated individuals, Cliff Thomason and Marion Stewart. My boys are student athletes that are fortunate to have these amazing role models assist in their education, college planning, and athletic training. Their time and commitment to the future of our children goes noticed by so many people. With my boys being multi-sport athletes they are always there to help push them to be better. Their confidence has grown immensely because of this training. I can’t thank them enough for all they do for not only my boys but so many children in the area.

Thank you Athletic Factory for your generosity and the many programs you offer up to the local student athletes. Our sons have received tutoring, athletic skills, and confidence thru your offered programs. We have a son that has received an athletic scholarship to Lawrence Tec and another who currently has multiple scholarship offers. I truly believe these results are due to the caring volunteers found through out this program. I HIGHLY recommend this organization for your student athletes.

I feel so fortunate to have the Athletic Factory in our area. Cliff, Marion and the team are all about the kids. My son started out playing his first travel ball with Ballers Elite in 6th grade and Marion was his coach. We werent even sure if he would like basketball but that season was special. He loved it so much basketball grew to be a passion for him. Over the past few years Athletic Factory has been a part of our athletic journey. We continue to do skills training run by Cliff, which I feel he is one of the best trainers in the State! Its not just the athletics either its the connection they have with the kids and the support they provide no matter what you need. They guys have travelled half way across the state to watch my son play basketball when we werent even playing for their team. My son is now going into the 10th grade and is the #50 ranked player in the state. We are very proud of him and very fortunate to have a team like the Athletic Factory to help our kids reach their academic and athletic goals!

The Athletic Factory is more than just a program for sports. In the Summer they helped me with SAT prep and got me prepared to take and do go on my SAT. The Athletic Factory to me is a big family that all cares about each other, I have had Athletic Factory coaches take me on visits to colleges and they always make it a fun time. Definitely wouldn’t be in the position I am if it wasn’t for the Athletic Factory.
