Coach Jon, I wish I was 15 years old so I could attend your basketball camp. I would receive excellent instruction and guidance from you.

His knowledge of the game and constant search to better himself and those around him will help him excel in the basketball industry and life for many years to come.

Jon is one of the best skill development coaches I have worked with. His dedication to the game and his commitment to developing new ideas, training techniques and methods has put him on the cutting edge of basketball skills training.
— Kirby Schepp (Current University of Manitoba Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Current assistant Coach Canadian Junior National Team)
Coach Giesbrecht is one of the brightest young coaches in our country. His ability to break down complex concepts and make them simple for young players is unprecedented. Anyone who has the opportunity to spend time in the gym with him will benefit greatly regardless of age or ability, he will flat out improve your game.
— Mike Raimbault (Current University of Winnipeg Head Men’s Basketball Coach)
I've had the opportunity to watch Jon grow and develop into one of Manitoba's best young coaches over the past 5+ years and I would highly recommend his camps to any athletes seeking improvement and an opportunity to learn new skills and concepts. Jon does an exceptional job of teaching every little detail about fundamental skills and basketball-specific concepts. One of the many highlights in his camp are the decision-making training drills and breakdowns which enhance athlete learning and understanding of higher level concepts. The skills and concepts taught are always age appropriate and individually catered to each athlete in attendance.
— Scott Kirkpatrick (Current Red River College Head Men’s Basketball Coach, Former 15U & 17U Manitoba Male Provincial Head Coach)
Jon has an outstanding ability to breakdown skills and concepts where the athlete comes away with a great understanding. The energy and thought Jon puts into skill development is second to none. His passion and dedication creates a learning environment that is an excellent experience.
— Dan Becker (Current Basketball Manitoba Technical Director, Current Centre of Performance Lead Instructor, Current & Former Male Provincial Coach, Former University Head and Assistant Coach, Former Division 1 and Professional Player)
Coach Giesbrecht is one of the top coaches and skill trainers in Manitoba. His skill work and ability to work with film is the best I have seen in a long time. Over the years, he has proven this by developing and working with some of the best players to come out of this province and winning three provincial championships along the way. His camps are excellent and every player goes away with a better understanding of what advanced skill development looks like.
