2v2

DESCRIPTION

I am excited to present a new Edge skills programs especially geared to  expedite skill development in a super fun atmosphere. I am calling it 2x2.

Here is the skinny:

  • 2x2 is for players from 7th-12th grade.
  • I'll work with the same FOUR players over the course of five one hour sessions in a semi-private atmosphere.
  • The makeup of the four players could be two 7th graders with two 10th graders as long as each pair is similar in age/skill/physical maturity or it could be four 8th graders or four seniors. As long as each player has a match it will work. An ideal situation would be two to four players from the same team but that will might not be the case and it will be four random kids.
  • The sessions will consist of learning and mastering 2-3 skills per session. I will teach the skills in painstaking detail the first thirty minutes and for the final thirty minutes the kids will play spirited games of 2v2, immediately putting their newly learned skills into effect under my watchful eye.
  • I will demand that the four players try the newly learned skills during the playing portion of the sessions and get them out of their comfort zones. It's OK to fail while learning. It's the only way to get better and master sophisticated moves. The guarantee: if learned and executed properly you WILL score with these skills.
  • At the end of the five sessions, each player should have a mastery of 10-15 transferable skills.
  • This is a COED program so girls will mix with boys just like my other groups.

This is a great program for kids from a team who want to learn together and improve their team's chances to become a winning squad.

  • 5 One Hour Sessions: Cost is $250 per kid for the five hours.

DESCRIPTION

Group sessions include anywhere from 10 to 20 players. It is during group sessions that the major development takes place. During these sessions the player is matched against other players and they are compelled to display the skills they are learning or have learned. Each session includes a focus on learning 4-5 different specific skills.

Basketball is a game of repetition. You must practice skills over and over before you are competent and confident enough to transfer them into a game situation. There are no shortcuts in becoming a good player. It takes years of intense effort and dedication. During the group sessions everything is set up to test one player against another. Most of it is devoted to playing, half-court, full-court, 1 v 1, 1 v 2, 3 v 2. This is where you learn how to make decisions on the fly, on the run; when someone is in your face. When to shoot, when to pass—that is the ultimate and defining measure of a player.

Anyone from 4th grade to 12th grade is welcome. Sessions are coed.

DESCRIPTION

Learn the fundamentals of shooting with the emphasis on proper mechanics: feet, legs, shoulders, release point, steps, follow through, hand discipline and placement, body balance, muscle memory; all the fine distinctions that make an accurate shooter.

Every Saturday at 10:30 am during the school year, I will conduct a comprehensive shooting clinic in a small group setting focusing on proper techniques including hand placement, release point, correct footwork, follow through and developing new muscle memory to replace the old. I take video before instruction and after instruction to highlight the dramatic difference. I will email the documentation so player and families can use video for permanent reference.  

Also available for team shooting sessions.

WHEN AND WHERE

 
 

10 sessions of one-on-one training to get you skills

individual training

DESCRIPTION

During the course of the sessions I will teach the player dozens of ways to create a shot and to beat a defender. The key to becoming a good player, the most important attribute, is skill with the ball. If a player can handle the ball with confidence under pressure, he/she will earn playing time and enhance your value to your team by becoming a skilled scorer. Confidence with the ball takes time and my method and teaching fosters the development of the player.

I highly encourage a strong commitment to my daily Group Sessions to maximize the development that begins with Individual Training. Think of it like this; Individual Training is akin to French I and in Group Training you READ French. Become fluent in basketball.
