Christian Laettner is a retired NBA 13-year veteran whose hall-of-fame career for the Duke Blue Devils is widely regarded as one of the greatest in National Collegiate Athletic Association history.
Coach Laettner will provide a fun, learning environment for the committed basketball player looking to improve their game, with a focus on skill development, striving to help players improve their ball handling, and passing, while increasing their understanding of offensive and defensive concepts. There will be great attention to detail on the core fundamentals of the game. Players, nowadays, love to dribble, dribble, dribble the ball. With that in mind, the teaching point this academy will 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 the coaches will stress how ball movement is a key ingredient to a player’s game and offensive efficiency!
This Laettner Clinic will be held Saturday November 12th 2016 at Warroad High School in Warroad, MN. There will be two sessions offered for 7th – 12th grade players, one for girls and one for boys. Each group is listed below.
ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!!! WALK UP REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH SESSION. THE $40 FEE CAN BE PAID IN CASH OR BY CHECK. ALL CHECKS SHOULD BE MADE OUT TO NLE.
