Ball Handling

Sharpen your handles with a slew of pro-style dribbling drills! Feel more comfortable dribbling against pressure. Learn how to avoid getting trapped with the ball

Shooting

Build your shot from the ground up - footwork up to the finishing stroke with a focus on shot construction and fixing common mistakes. If you already have the fundamentals, learn to get your shot off quicker, become a better 3-pt shooter and a "clutch" foul shooter.

Elite

What can you do to become more explosive ? What type of weight training is best for basketball ? How can I get recruited to play in college ?

Passing

Master the different passes and when to use them. Learn the art of deception without being careless. Learn to pass to a specific target, not just towards your teammate.

Defense

Learn the proper stance and create great balance. On-the-ball and off-ball techniques. When to slide and when to sprint. Maximize your defensive quickeness!

Conditioning

Improve your stamina, consistency, hand-eye coordination. Become both quick and fast. Become an explosive jumper.
