This unique program is designed to break down different basketball skills to better understand each component of the game. Each week will focus on a different fundamental basketball skill to better enhance the overall player. Each skill learned will also be taught in real game situations, so players can apply what they have learned in games. At the end of each session scrimmage games will be played where teamwork and communication will be a main focus. Our goal for each player is to improve their basketball skill set and become a better teammate and player. This program will prepare the player to be ready for winter basketball competition. Focusing and learning each skill individually will help build a more complete basketball player. The program will also have many competitions and prizes.
