“The Simi Valley Cagers basketball program was one of the most memorable experiences our family has ever been a part of. Both my son and nephew played for Coach Earle for the last 3 years and I can’t say enough about his dedication and enthusiasm to bring out the best in each individual player.  He and his staff provide all the skill sets that will have your child ready to play at the next level. Along the way we made many great friends and will always consider ourselves a part of the Cagers Family.”

Danny Alexander, Parent 


"Coach Earle and the Cagers program are consistently one of the best youth basketball programs in Southern California, year in and year out. The Cagers players improve each year with every practice and game, and they always come to our Pioneer program with a tremendous skill set. There is no better program around that builds a young player’s skill, basketball IQ, leadership and work ethic. The Cagers practices are high intensity and  lead to success and domination on the court. Their records speak for itself. Our Simi Valley Basketball Program truly values our relationship with Coach Earle, Coach Kate and Coach Tyler." 

Ryan Bradshaw, Varsity Head Coach, Simi Valley High School


“If you are looking for high-quality basketball instruction in Ventura County look no further than the Simi Valley Basketball Academy.  Coach Earle places an emphasis on skill development and helping players increase their basketball IQ.  His Cagers teams participate in competitive tournaments, and his coaching staff are outstanding teachers who will help prepare you for the next level."

Christian Aurand, Simi Valley High School


“Coach Earle Okamoto and his staff, run an excellent program based on teaching and developing sound basketball players. Our programs have competed against one another during the past 10 years and I have the highest regard for him as a coach and a person. He always maintains integrity in his coaching and interaction with others. I would recommend his program to anyone seeking a great place for their child to learn and grow.”

Coach Shaun La Tulippe, Impact Basketball


“Earle Okamoto has participated with Swoosh Tournaments for the past few years. As a positive influence and role model, Earle embodies great discipline and sportsmanship as he teaches and coaches his teams, both on and off the courts.  In the “heat” of a pressured situation, we have observed Earle in complete control and displayed visible “calm” which influenced those around him.  He is well respected by the Swoosh basketball organization, staff members, various participating teams, parents and partners alike.“
