·         To provide a highly-structured activity with the specific goal of improving performance.

·         Deliver an alternative to current options

o    Too many kids in each practice…too many non-interested kids involved

o    Too much down time, or kids waiting for their turn

o    Kids only getting a couple turns in each drill

·         Grow Confidence

·         Gain Strong Mind / Mentally Tough

·         Increase Basketball IQ

·         Instill Work Ethic & Discipline

·         Buildup Athleticism & Skill


ü  Simple practice isn’t enough to rapidly gain skills.

ü  Mere repetition of an activity won’t lead to improved performance.

ü  Your practice must be: intentional, aimed at improving performance, designed for your current skill level, combined with immediate feedback and repetitious.

ü  Scientific research shows that the quality of your practice is just as important as the quantity.

1.   Deliberate Practice: 

·         Work on specific tasks (one at a time)

·         Break down into single pieces to master

·         Practice out of your comfort zone


2.   Repetition:

·         Repeatedly perform the same or similar tasks to master each move

·         Real-time (immediate) informative feedback

3.   Playing Fast: 

·         Practice at game speed

·         High intensity

·         Going through the motions doesn’t help

4.  Strong Link Strategy:

·         Focus on a small number of very talented/motivated/passionate individuals [6 attendees per session] (UPGRADE)
