THE EDGE… providing lots of ways to improve your game:
HIGH SCHOOL OFF-SEASON SKILLS TRAINING
Hour-long sessions, 3 days a week 4:00-5:00 pm Collegiate Academy
Starting March 6, 2017 and continuing through November 1 The Edge will offer High School only skills training three days a week–Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 4-5 at Collegiate Academy. The sessions are coed and designed for the high school player. At every session the first 30 minutes are devoted to skill building and the last half hour to scrimmaging.
Hone your skills in the off-season to maximize your club and high school basketball experience. There will be 12-14 sessions offered per month and your month starts the day you join. For instance, if you start on March 6th you go until April 6th.
INDIVIDUAL SKILLS SESSIONS
One on One, hour long sessions
During the course of the sessions I will teach the player dozens of ways to create a shot and to beat a defender. The key to becoming a good player, the most important attribute, is skill with the ball. If a player can handle the ball with confidence under pressure, he/she will get playing time. Confidence with the ball takes time and my method and teaching fosters the development of the player.
Buddy System2 players at a time for hour long sessions
5 or 10 one hour sessions covering all the skills acquired in the individual sessions divided by the number of players. Can take up to 3 players in the Buddy System ($333 each).
When—6 Days a Week, Monday thru Saturday
During the time of individual sessions the player will be included in group sessions. Group sessions include anywhere from 15 to 30 players. It is during group sessions that the major development takes place. During these sessions the player is pitted against other players who have been through the program and they are compelled to display the skills they are learning or have learned.
Basketball is a game of repetition. You must practice skills over and over before you are competent and confident enough to transfer them into a game situation. There are no shortcuts in becoming a good player. It takes years of intense effort and dedication. During the group sessions everything is set up to test one player against another. Part of the session is review of what was learned in individuals. Most of it is devoted to playing, half-court, full-court, 1 v 1, 1 v 2, 2 v 3. This is where you learn how to make decisions on the fly, on the run; when someone is in your face. When to shoot, when to pass—that is the ultimate and defining measure of a player.Drop In = $25 per 1.5 hour session
