Special Olympics – Unified Basketball
Feb 5 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Special Olympics - Unified Basketball @ HUB Sports Center

Basketball is one of the top sports for Special Olympics Washington. Players take it up at all ages and at all abilities, from young players learning to handle the ball and keep it under control while dribbling to older, more experienced players who have the moves and know the strategies to play challenging ball. We offer team events as well as individual skills competitions that help athletes train and compete in basic basketball skills before advancing to team play.

It is also one of the favorite sports for the Special Olympics Unified Sports initiative, when players with and without intellectual disabilities form teams to play other unified teams. It’s a learning experience that brings together communities and helps foster a spirit of inclusion.

 

What is Unified Sports?

Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability, which makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away.
Our opponent is intolerance. Only shoulder-to-shoulder, as teammates together, can we defeat it.

Breakthrough Basketball Attack & Counter Camp
Apr 24 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

We’re pleased to announce that we have arranged for Don Kelbick to come to Spokane, Washington to run a 3-day skill development camp, teaching players and coaches the same skills and strategies that he used with pro players like Joe Johnson, Raja Bell, Bruce Bowen, Carlos Arroyo, and dozens of other NBA and European players.

This camp uses the Attack & Counter Skill Development System to help you develop the KEY skills that you need to become a great basketball player.

You will learn the same critical and universal skills that Don teaches to NBA players. These fundamental skills are universal for all levels. They will help you no matter what defense or offense you use. That’s the great thing about fundamentals. They help you in all situations. Here’s a brief summary of the skills and topics that will be covered…

Footwork

You will learn how to improve your footwork. This is probably the most under-practiced, misunderstood, and most important skill of all. You will learn how to practice footwork in a completely new (and simpler) way. You’ll also learn how footwork carries over into games and how it makes you better.

Mentality

During the camp, players will learn Don’s Attack and Counter Strategy. As the name implies, this system encourages an aggressive mentality. Players will learn important mental aspects of the game including aggressiveness, building confidence, reducing the fear of failure, shooting mentality, work ethic, how to be mentally tough, more focused, and get an edge on the competition.

Post Moves and Finishing Inside

Learn the proper footwork, mentality, and strategies to score in the post and various situations near the basket. This applies to both guard and post players. There is a heavy emphasis on footwork and you’ll learn how to become a more dominate scorer inside.

Guard Play

You will learn how the Attack and Counter Fundamentals allow you to easily beat defenders off the dribble, create space for your shot, and score off the dribble. This allows you to create space, make good decisions, and get your shot off when you want.

Ball handling

Learn how to improve your ball-handling skills — this includes dribbling, passing, decision making, and reducing turnovers.

Fast Break Skills

Learn proper footwork in fast break situations and improve your ability to score in transition. You’ll improve footwork, mentality, and ability to score on the run.

Shooting

Learn how to improve your footwork and mentality to increase your shooting percentage. Through high rep shooting drills, Don will teach you how to be more consistent and effective with your feet, how to be more confident, how to be mentally tough, and how to become a better shooter.

Screening and Cutting – Getting Open

Learn how to move without the ball and get open so you can score more points. Don will teach you proper footwork and concepts when using screens and cutting. No matter what team you play for, learning how to read screens and move without the ball will help you get more easy scoring opportunities. This is an important skill for all players to learn. Don will teach you how to move without the ball, get open for easy shots, and score on the move.

As you can see, this clinic focuses heavily on footwork and mentality, which we believe are the two most important aspects to becoming a better player.

We promise that players and coaches will learn dozens of new tips and techniques that will make them better. Don’s methods are very simple, yet unique. You just won’t get this stuff in other places.

It’s all about helping you develop the KEY skills that you need to become a great basketball player.

Format of the Camp

You will learn these fundamental skills by participating in a “Show and Go” format…

Show – During the camp Don Kelbick (NBA development coach) will show you the key drills and the skills you need to work on. He will explain and demonstrate the key details of each specific skill to the entire group. He will teach you the skills, strategies, and concepts. He’ll show the “little things” that are important.

Go – Then you’ll break off into groups to work with designated coaches in your area. There will be other coaches helping you with break down drills. Don will also walk around working with players and coaches at this time. You will work hard at practicing the new skill and learning how to incorporate the skill into games.

This will be repeated throughout most of the camp as we introduce new skills and concepts.

We will run lots of drills and players will get lots of repetitions. You’ll get LOTS of touches with the ball and it will be fast paced.

After skills are practiced, we will also put players in competitive break down drills. This allows players to apply and refine their newly-learned skills. Most of the competitive break downs are lots of fun, but they are different (and we believe more effective) than the standard 5-on-5 games that you see at other camps.

What Will Coaches Learn?

You will learn the same things as the players. As an “observing coach” you can view the entire camp and take notes. You’ll pick up lots of new drills, fundamentals, and strategies that will give you an edge over the competition. We guarantee you will learn lots of new things from Don Kelbick.

How is This Camp Different Than Other Camps?

You’ll experience 5 key differences in this camp:

  • You get to work with an NBA development coach. How many players get to do that?!!
  • 99% of the camp is focused on skill development and competitive situations. Many of the camps these days play a lot of 5-on-5 games and do little skill development. Sure that can be fun and you need to get game experience… BUT do you really think most of your improvement happens during games? Of course not. You still need to play in game-like situations to apply your newly-learned skills, but most of the off-season should be spent on skill development.

Great players became great by practicing skills. We want you to get better so we focus on skills and put you in competitive situations. Most of the competitive break downs are lots of fun, but it’s different than the standard 5-on-5 games that you see at other camps.

  • You will learn how to practice on your own! Don is a firm believer that it’s important to teach you how to practice on your own. He believes that “knowledge is power”. He strives to teach drills that you can use at home or in the gym on your own.
  • You will learn about new and unique drills, concepts, and skills that you probably won’t see anywhere else. Don has a unique, out-of-the-box method to teaching basketball skills. Not to mention he understands a lot of critical concepts that few coaches, players, and parents understand. He will teach you something new, guaranteed.
  • You learn about footwork and mentality which is rarely taught or understood by players and coaches. You will learn a very unique and simple way to apply the same footwork to post moves, perimeter moves, dribbling moves, getting open, using screens, playing defense, and more.

Who can attend?

The camp is for male and female high school players, and mature 7th & 8th graders. No exceptions are made for younger players.

This is for SERIOUS basketball players that want to get better. You can play games anywhere, so we focus on things you can’t just pick up anywhere. We focus on developing skills that will make you better!

Coaches that want to learn and pick up new drills can also observe (coaches can find more info below).

Coach Profile – Don Kelbick

Here’s your chance to learn from the coach who’s trained over a dozen NBA players (including Joe Johnson, Bruce Bowen, Raja Bell, Tim Hardaway Sr. and Jr. ).

Coach Don Kelbick is a legend in the coaching and training community and now you can learn directly from him

Coach Kelbick has conducted over 1,0000 basketball clinics and camps for players of all ages and skill levels. He’s the inventor of the highly-respected Attack & Counter Skill Development System, and he’s brings 25 years of collegiate coaching to the table.

Many players who work with Coach Kelbick look back on their time with him as a turning point in their career. This is your opportunity experience that same rapid transformation.

This is for SERIOUS basketball players that want to get better. You can play games anywhere, so we focus on things you can’t just pick up anywhere. We focus on developing skills that will make you better!

Coaches that want to learn and pick up new drills can also observe (coaches can find more info below).

Breakthrough Basketball Attack & Counter Camp
Apr 26 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

We’re pleased to announce that we have arranged for Don Kelbick to come to Spokane, Washington to run a 3-day skill development camp, teaching players and coaches the same skills and strategies that he used with pro players like Joe Johnson, Raja Bell, Bruce Bowen, Carlos Arroyo, and dozens of other NBA and European players.

This camp uses the Attack & Counter Skill Development System to help you develop the KEY skills that you need to become a great basketball player.

You will learn the same critical and universal skills that Don teaches to NBA players. These fundamental skills are universal for all levels. They will help you no matter what defense or offense you use. That’s the great thing about fundamentals. They help you in all situations. Here’s a brief summary of the skills and topics that will be covered…

Footwork

You will learn how to improve your footwork. This is probably the most under-practiced, misunderstood, and most important skill of all. You will learn how to practice footwork in a completely new (and simpler) way. You’ll also learn how footwork carries over into games and how it makes you better.

Mentality

During the camp, players will learn Don’s Attack and Counter Strategy. As the name implies, this system encourages an aggressive mentality. Players will learn important mental aspects of the game including aggressiveness, building confidence, reducing the fear of failure, shooting mentality, work ethic, how to be mentally tough, more focused, and get an edge on the competition.

Post Moves and Finishing Inside

Learn the proper footwork, mentality, and strategies to score in the post and various situations near the basket. This applies to both guard and post players. There is a heavy emphasis on footwork and you’ll learn how to become a more dominate scorer inside.

Guard Play

You will learn how the Attack and Counter Fundamentals allow you to easily beat defenders off the dribble, create space for your shot, and score off the dribble. This allows you to create space, make good decisions, and get your shot off when you want.

Ball handling

Learn how to improve your ball-handling skills — this includes dribbling, passing, decision making, and reducing turnovers.

Fast Break Skills

Learn proper footwork in fast break situations and improve your ability to score in transition. You’ll improve footwork, mentality, and ability to score on the run.

Shooting

Learn how to improve your footwork and mentality to increase your shooting percentage. Through high rep shooting drills, Don will teach you how to be more consistent and effective with your feet, how to be more confident, how to be mentally tough, and how to become a better shooter.

Screening and Cutting – Getting Open

Learn how to move without the ball and get open so you can score more points. Don will teach you proper footwork and concepts when using screens and cutting. No matter what team you play for, learning how to read screens and move without the ball will help you get more easy scoring opportunities. This is an important skill for all players to learn. Don will teach you how to move without the ball, get open for easy shots, and score on the move.

As you can see, this clinic focuses heavily on footwork and mentality, which we believe are the two most important aspects to becoming a better player.

We promise that players and coaches will learn dozens of new tips and techniques that will make them better. Don’s methods are very simple, yet unique. You just won’t get this stuff in other places.

It’s all about helping you develop the KEY skills that you need to become a great basketball player.

Format of the Camp

You will learn these fundamental skills by participating in a “Show and Go” format…

Show – During the camp Don Kelbick (NBA development coach) will show you the key drills and the skills you need to work on. He will explain and demonstrate the key details of each specific skill to the entire group. He will teach you the skills, strategies, and concepts. He’ll show the “little things” that are important.

Go – Then you’ll break off into groups to work with designated coaches in your area. There will be other coaches helping you with break down drills. Don will also walk around working with players and coaches at this time. You will work hard at practicing the new skill and learning how to incorporate the skill into games.

This will be repeated throughout most of the camp as we introduce new skills and concepts.

We will run lots of drills and players will get lots of repetitions. You’ll get LOTS of touches with the ball and it will be fast paced.

After skills are practiced, we will also put players in competitive break down drills. This allows players to apply and refine their newly-learned skills. Most of the competitive break downs are lots of fun, but they are different (and we believe more effective) than the standard 5-on-5 games that you see at other camps.

What Will Coaches Learn?

You will learn the same things as the players. As an “observing coach” you can view the entire camp and take notes. You’ll pick up lots of new drills, fundamentals, and strategies that will give you an edge over the competition. We guarantee you will learn lots of new things from Don Kelbick.

How is This Camp Different Than Other Camps?

You’ll experience 5 key differences in this camp:

  • You get to work with an NBA development coach. How many players get to do that?!!
  • 99% of the camp is focused on skill development and competitive situations. Many of the camps these days play a lot of 5-on-5 games and do little skill development. Sure that can be fun and you need to get game experience… BUT do you really think most of your improvement happens during games? Of course not. You still need to play in game-like situations to apply your newly-learned skills, but most of the off-season should be spent on skill development.

Great players became great by practicing skills. We want you to get better so we focus on skills and put you in competitive situations. Most of the competitive break downs are lots of fun, but it’s different than the standard 5-on-5 games that you see at other camps.

  • You will learn how to practice on your own! Don is a firm believer that it’s important to teach you how to practice on your own. He believes that “knowledge is power”. He strives to teach drills that you can use at home or in the gym on your own.
  • You will learn about new and unique drills, concepts, and skills that you probably won’t see anywhere else. Don has a unique, out-of-the-box method to teaching basketball skills. Not to mention he understands a lot of critical concepts that few coaches, players, and parents understand. He will teach you something new, guaranteed.
  • You learn about footwork and mentality which is rarely taught or understood by players and coaches. You will learn a very unique and simple way to apply the same footwork to post moves, perimeter moves, dribbling moves, getting open, using screens, playing defense, and more.

Who can attend?

The camp is for male and female high school players, and mature 7th & 8th graders. No exceptions are made for younger players.

This is for SERIOUS basketball players that want to get better. You can play games anywhere, so we focus on things you can’t just pick up anywhere. We focus on developing skills that will make you better!
