Here is what people are saying about Livin' The Dream...


"I believe wholeheartedly in the mission and vision of Livin' The Dream." 
 -Dwight Short (President, DLS Consulting)

"Livin' The Dream has the potential to impact people all over the world with a life-giving message.  They understand that life is more than basketball, but believe basketball is an amazing platform to share the hope of eternal life in Christ."   
  - Sherri Odlevak (Founder, Dribble 4 Destiny)

“Thanks to Livin’ The Dream and the continuous support and encouragement that they provided, I am living my dream of playing professional basketball.”
 –Brett Olson (Pro Basketball Player)


I've seen first hand how LTD is a blessing in so many ways.  I had the privilege of partnering with LTD on a European Missions Outreach.  Brad & his team opened many doors for relationships and future ministry. I've witnessed the impact LTD has had on former college players as well as young athletes.  The level of coaching is superior; more importantly, the influence of Christ permeates every aspect of what they do.  It is evident in their practice sessions and games, that Christian character is what this organization is about.  Finally, it goes without saying that LTD represents the heart and soul of its founder/leader, Brad Mann.  His love for the Lord and for people resonates with everything he does.  In addition, he brings a giftedness in leadership that continues to move the ministry forward.

"My oldest son has played for Livin' The Dream for nearly 5 years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  I now have my youngest son playing and he plans on continuing again next year.  Thank you for all you've done for my sons!" 
 -Rick U. (Overland Park, KS)


”My sons have taken basketball lessons from Brad and the LTD staff. I was very impressed with their focus on the basics such as dribbling, shooting, footwork, movement, & defense-as well as his positive, upbeat style of coaching and interaction."
-John K. (Lenexa, KS)

"LTD worked with all 3 of our sons and we were very impressed not only with their development as basketball players, but also as young men. The LTD staff are great role models and encouraging leaders for young people."
 -Tom & Ann S. (Shawnee, KS)

“Our son & daughter were involved with Livin' the Dream for more than 4 years.  Each of them improved considerably as players in all areas of their game. LTD's continued focus on the basics such as teamwork, hard work, and a belief in each person's God-given abilities, created a great recipe for a positive outcome whether it be in basketball or in living life from day to day." 
-John & Laura M. (Olathe, KS)
