Merrick is an incredibly talented and dedicated coach, who cares deeply for each of his client. We put our son, Jackson Bayles, in Merrick's capable hands from the time Jackson was a young athlete until he left Ottawa to attend the University of Calgary on a full basketball scholarship.

Merrick's creative drills are taught with a deep understanding of the game and the whole athlete, which we've rarely seen from other coaches - from footwork, dribbling and shooting right through to work ethic and character. Merrick was a major influence and mentor to our son, instilling in Jackson basketball skills that have carried him beyond where he would have gone otherwise, and equally importantly, influencing Jackson to build his character as a dedicated, hard-working player who never settles for less than his best.

Our experience with capital courts has been absolutely amazing. My son started there at age 6 and has going there for over 2 years now.  We are amazed with how fast he has improved and progressed under Merrick's instruction.  Thanks for everything!

Going to Merrick Palmer/Capital Courts was the best decision! Merrick is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and intuitive. Results were immediate and goals become very achievable. Highly recommended!

My daughter has been training at Capital Courts for a year and the improvement in her game has been significant. Merrick, Kemeish, and crew are fantastic technicians and they truly love the game and sharing their knowledge. 
They care about their athletes’ growth, and my daughter’s confidence has increased on the court as a result. Totally worth the drive from Kingston.

Capital Courts is a great place for new or experienced basketball players to improve their skills on the court. With my five years of training, I saw huge results within my shot, my ball handling and my overall game play. All of their trainers and staff are extremely welcoming and are a blast to work with.

Our son has been training at Capital Courts for three years now.  The training is top notch, and the difference it makes is remarkable.  Weekly sessions have made all the difference with his shot and footwork.  
Thank you Merrick!!”
