TEACH THE "LITTLE THINGS" AND WAIT FOR BIG THINGS TO COME
OUR MISSIONOur mission is to provide a fun, learning environment for the devoted, committed basketball player who wants to improve their game. We focus on skill development, striving to help players improve their ball handling, and passing, while increasing their understanding of offensive and defensive concepts. We also work to improve one on one skills and the finer points of three on three and five on five. Players nowadays love to dribble, dribble, dribble the ball. With that in mind, the teaching point we like to stress the most is “catch the ball, save your dribble-and look to pass first!”. This concept is often overlooked in today’s game with the younger players – so we stress how ball movement is a key ingredient to a player's game and offensive efficiency! We teach PASS the ball – as the ball moves faster than any player on the court, only via the PASS. It is a lost, forgotten art form of the game of basketball.
We always have a lot of fun working with these young players – the reward is unbelievable - seeing the players pick up and have success with what we teach them on the court. And, we are especially rewarded when we see each player and coach loving what we are teaching them. It is a very gratifying experience for us.Local, in-town sessions are available as scheduled, and we are also available to travel to your city or area to provide training sessions, camps or clinics.
