“Caleb loves training with Aubrey and AR Elite. When I stepped into the gym for the first time, I knew that this was different. I love the way that Aubrey can coach each kid individually even though they are in a group session. I also love the fact that everything he does focuses on discipline, accountability and commitment that will help you be successful not only on the court but in life.”

"Dear Coach Reese, I really appreciate what you have done for the team this season. You have devoted so much time and effort into making our basketball team the success it is today. You have taught them sportsmanship, fair play and many values that they will need in life.

Thank you again for donating so much time to the players."

"AR Elite has been a consistent part of Jeremiah’s growth.

Focusing on competing & the ability to stress on “attention to detail” & also fundamentals has been key.

What a great basketball program to be a part of!"


Reyna Bowman

"First of all I want to say thank you!  Thank you for allowing my son to be part of such a great family. As I have watched you over the past couple of weeks, your dedication to these kids is commended. My son looks up to you! Thank you for pushing him to be the best he can be right now. Not only is this a court thing, but you care about grades. That was the first thing you asked me when talking to you.  What about his grades? That meant a lot. He has tremendously learned too much since working with you, and i know he wouldn't be where it is now without your training.  Thanks again for all you do!!!"

"My son has worked with Aubrey Reese of AR Elite  for about 4 years.  Through his coaching, Aubrey teaches life lessons that are relevant not only on the basketball court, but also in everyday life. He’s taught my son hard work, teamwork, dedication, organization and patience all while developing better leadership skills. Playing for Aubrey and AR Elite has allowed exposure to different styles of playing as well as college coaches and recruiters. Even during the off season, Aubrey supports our boys by checking in frequently, attending school games, and supporting his team off the court in everyday life circumstances. We’re so thankful to have the support of Aubrey and AR Elite as we navigate the challenges of being a student athlete."


Holli Autrey

"We can’t say enough positive things about Coach Aubrey and his outstanding basketball program. He is extremely talented, dedicated, enthusiastic, dependable, and motivating. Our son never wants to miss a training. Coach Aubrey’s heart is 110% into his work. He works with some of the best talent in Auburn, and also ones just learning the game. Coach Aubrey treats all the same, providing each kid with the individual instruction they need to up their game. We are so thankful to be a part of his incredible program."
