Basketball training is almost like going to school. From April to November, the faster you understand a concept, the faster you’ll graduate to a new skill. 

We’ll take as long as it needs to take to conquer a skill and we’ll move on.  If we can get the same amount of drills done in half the time because a player is understanding and doing a good job, then that’s when we’ll add more.

Here's an example of how we'd do that with a focus on shooting.

Shooting Series

Goal: Make over 500 shots a session

Beginner Class

Goal: 300 makes within five feet of the basket before we shoot any other shot on the court

Keys:  Concentration on and Dedication to shooting

  • Perfect Form
  • Perfect Footwork
  • Perfect Follow Through
  • Players hold follow through until the ball hits the floor
  • Not a speed drill, a skill drill 

Graduation: When taking 300 shots goes from taking an hour to taking 15 minutes

Next Level

Goal: 50 swishes on 10-foot jump shots

Keys: Continued focus on Concentration and Dedication

  • Improving your skill
  • Repetition

Master Class

Goal: 10 swishes in a row from five feet, taking one step back until you reach the three-point line.
