We Provide Basketball Training Services For All Ages 7 And Over.
Shooting a basketball is one of the hardest tasks in any sport besides hitting a baseball. We work on your footwork, hand placement, getting your legs involved, basketball trajectory and release point to make you a more efficient shooter.
It does matter if you a guard or over 7 feet tall, today every player needs to be able to handle the ball in some capacity. We work on all aspects of ball handling to help make the ball become an extension of your body.
Finishing Around the Rim
A lay up is the easiest 2 pts you can get in a basketball game but finishing with pressure and among taller players takes practice. We work on jump stops, euro steps, going strong, taking contact and finishing with finesse.
A good shot fake can get you in position to score an easier basket. We work on ways to get the defense off balance using shot, head and shoulder fakes.
Having good foot work is essential to becoming a better basketball player and being able to pivot, shift and change direction is a major part of that process. We help develop your base, pivoting, shifting and ball protection.
Setting Up the Defense
Being able to read a defense and set up your defender so you can get easy baskets will determine your success as a basketball player. We work on court vision, reading the defense and breaking down your primary defender to increase your scoring potential.
Cutting, Fading, Drifting
The best shooters in the world have figured out the importance of these 3 movements. Using these 3 movements, on certain places on the floor, will give you the ability to position yourself to get more in rhythm open shots.
Every player should know how to play all 5 positions and know where every player should be within the offense. Having the ability to know where everyone of your teammates needs to be on floor to run a successful offense is the key to winning games.
The teams that are able to pass are the teams that are able to breakdown defenses for easy baskets. We work on passing accuracy, body positioning, passing to space and reading defenders to help you put those assist on the board.
Players like Dennis Rodman made a living in the NBA with rebounding and playing good defense. We teach boxing out, swarming to the ball, body positioning and jump training to help make rebounding an overall part of your game.
When playing defense, knowing where to be on the court and how to disrupt the opposing teams offense or player is of utmost importance. We teach court positioning, help defense, on ball defense, cutting off angles and how to take a charge.
