Group sessions include anywhere from 15 to 30 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.
