SKILL TRAINING (available year-round)
SHOOTING FORM - a focus on developing proper footwork, staying balanced and
squaring shoulder to the basket, & getting a perfect release, backspin, & follow through

BALL HANDLING - making quicker and stronger moves to create separation from
defenders.  Developing confidence in attacking the basket using the weak-hand dribble

FINISHING AROUND THE BASKET - using the body to shield off defenders, absorb
contact and still keep focus on the rim, using shot fakes to get defenders up in the air
and out of position.  Many of these drills will include contact from a football blocking
shield to emulate a live defender

CREATING SCORING OPPORTUNITIES - using jab-steps, shot fakes, spin moves,
hop-backs and other offensive moves to create openings to get a shot off

QUICKNESS & VERTICAL JUMP- Plyometric exercises, drills to create a quick
first step & improve lateral movement, and explosive vertical leap training

Other skills available at request: Post Moves, 1-on-1 Defense, Rebounding, and more!

Is it better to do private sessions or group training?
I feel that athletes get more out of a one-on-one training situation.  (More repetitions, more
feedback, more guidance)  I typically suggest doing at least one private lesson before doing a
group session so that I can give the athlete a good idea on the areas that need the most work.  
However, the small group sessions are more cost-friendly and I've found that some athletes are
more comfortable training with a friend or two.

What is a good age to start training?
It really varies from kid to kid.  Dribbling skills and footwork are very important for
younger/beginning players, and getting a jump on that skill-set can lead to more success early in a
youth basketball career. Strength is a big factor in developing shooting form, so a lot of times for
players younger than 4th grade I focus solely on ball-handling and footwork.  Most 4th and 5th
graders are ready to start developing good shooting form habits.  Bad shooting habits are tough
to break if players shoot incorrectly for too long, so getting a grasp on a few keys early is huge!

Can you help elite or older-aged kids or is this program only for players beginning to build skills?
Yes, I definitely can.  I have trained 9 current Division 1 College Basketball player or recruits.  A lot
of the older 11th & 12th graders that I work with are surprised with some of the small adjustments
in footwork or form that make a big difference in their game.  I really enjoy working with players
who are already very good but want to keep adding, fine-tuning, and quickening skills and moves.
