Pat Powers Volleyball Camp

Olympic Gold Medalist, Pat Powers will conduct a volleyball camp in Spokane, WA. This camp will be held at Hub Sports Center on Saturday and Sunday, Aug 10 – Aug 11, 2019. The volleyball camp will run from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Saturday and 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM on Sunday. At the end of the first day, I will talk to all junior players and parents about high school volleyball, club volleyball, college volleyball and volleyball scholarships.

Location: Hub Sports Center – Spokane, WA
When: Saturday and Sunday, Aug 10 – Aug 11, 2019
Start Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM on Saturday
End Time: 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM on Sunday
Registration Fee: $130

CLICK HERE for Registration

Get ready to have a great time! You will learn a lot about volleyball in a short period of time! I have found it useful if you show up in relatively decent shape and most important, don’t compare yourself to others in the clinic. If you feel intimidated or bored, the learning process shuts down. I do an excellent job of matching each player with drills and competition suited for the appropriate levels of play.

There will be young players in attendance as well as adults. I will group you by age and skill level an hour into the clinic — I do it for safety reasons and to make you feel more comfortable. The coaching staff will be watching each individual execute the skills during “Survivor”… this is where we enforce the teaching cycle.

Please remember it is not important who you play against or who you play with, all that matters is how you are performing each skill during “Survivor.”

You will want to bring: an extra T-shirt, kneepads, water and other personal items you may need.

* * * * IMPORTANT * * * *

If you are under 18 years old and received a ride to the clinic, please inform the staff when your parents plan to pick you up. Until a responsible party arrives, we would ask that you remain inside the facility. Thank-you for your cooperation in this matter.

Parents are more than welcome to spend all day with us. The best time to watch is the last hour of each day as that is when we will be playing Survivor.

PlayUnplugged Brag Badge College 2019
Aug 14 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
PlayUnplugged Brag Badge College 2019 @ HUB Sports Center

Play Unplugged is happening Summer 2019 for elementary students. HUB Sports Center is hosting a Brag Badge College where students can come and earn multiple badges at one time and location. Join us between 3:00-6:00pm on June 17, July 16, and/or August 14 at the HUB Sports Center.

Play Unplugged is all about encouraging kids to put down their electronics so they can get out and play. It all begins with providing the right kind of motivation. The kind that get’s kids playing and active without them even knowing it. This motivation is based on the Brag Badge. Kids earn a Brag Badge for every activity they complete. Each Brag Badge has points they can collect and then turn in for real life rewards as defined by their parents. Our goal is to help kids re-engage with the real world, help parents plan a fun and exciting summer and give much needed visibility to local businesses.

What is a Brag Badge? A Brag Badge is a plastic tag, somewhat resembling a “military dog tag” that represents a Play Unplugged challenge or activity. On the front of the Brag Badge you’ll find one of our Braggers representing specific activity. On the back of the badge, you’ll find information used for tracking the badge.

Each badge has been sequentially numbered and contains the title of the activity as well as a point allocation we call Brags. The more difficult the activity associated to the badge, the higher the Brags. These Brags can then be tracked and used in drawings, contests, etc. Special attention to every detail has been considered to ensure each Brag Badge maintains a highly collectible feel and desirability.

Head to www.weplayunplugged.com for more information about the program.

Breakthrough Basketball Elite Guard Camp
Oct 11 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

This is a 3-day basketball camp in Spokane, Washington that will teach you the essential skills, techniques, habits, IQ and drills to become an elite player (to develop an elite mindset, which is what truly separates players.).

What will players get out of the camp?

You will learn what it takes to play at the elite level. Becoming an individual that can help your team succeed and understands the importance of the little things.

You will improve your ball handling, shooting, passing, athleticism, decision-making, leadership skills, and scoring.

Our Breakthrough Staff has trained some of the best players in the world that have gone on to become Olympic Gold Medalists, NBA All-Stars, WNBA All-Stars, Elite College Players (Michigan State, Duke, Kentucky – to name a few), and Numerous Player of the Year Awards at the high school level.

And you will learn the subtle and sometimes unnoticeable things that are taught to and used by the world’s best players; players like Steph Curry, Maya Moore, Russell Westbrook, Diana Taurasi, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, and others.

Who is this for? Is this good for players who are NOT guards?

This is NOT for beginners. This is for intermediate to advanced players looking to be placed in a high-intensity environment with competitive drills. The camp is for players who already possess some good dribble moves and are looking to take their game to the next level.

This is certainly not limited to guards. Every coach would love to have 5 players on the floor with the skills, decision-making, and leadership of elite guards.

So if you are a wing player or a post player who is serious about elevating your game to the next level, this camp would be great for you as well.

Here are a few things that you will learn at the camp:

Develop an explosive first step

This is probably one of the most important aspects of being an elite guard, but it is rarely broken down and taught properly. Learn about the proper shin angle, head position, shoulder position, and hip position.

Develop superior hand-eye coordination and feel for the ball

In this camp, you will be challenged with advanced hand-eye coordination and dribbling drills that will challenge you and accelerate your feel for the basketball. These drills will make dribbling during game situations feel easy.

How to handle game situations like Chris Paul & Steph Curry

Chris Paul and Steph Curry are two of the smartest players currently in the NBA. We have studied the games of these guards and will show tactics and little tricks that these elite guards use during games.

For example, whenever Chris Paul and Steph Curry face a switch on a ball screen and they get a bigger slower defender on them, they almost always take two big dribbles backwards to create space and give them room to get forward momentum to attack the bigger, slower defender. Little tips like these will take you from being a good guard to an elite guard.

You will learn how they handle ball screens, fast break situations, double teams, and aggressive pressure.

Get to the next level by improving the lost art of passing.

Not only will you learn advanced dribbling drills that will be extremely challenging, we will also introduce passing drills that will make you a much better passer in game-like situations. We will teach how to pass against pressure, how to read the defense and find the open guy, how to pass in transition, how to pass against double teams, and how to pass into the post.

If you can handle the ball and make great passes, every coach will find a place for you on their team.

How to play great defense and lock down your opponent like Kawhi Leonard by learning the strategies he uses

You will learn how to properly move on the floor so you can make things much more difficult for your opponents. If you can focus on defense, stop your opponent from scoring, you will get playing time because your coach can’t afford to keep you off the floor. You will learn proper body position when guarding the ball, how to dictate what the offense does, and how to force them into low percentage scoring situation. We will teach you how to adapt to all of the different kinds of scoring guards to put the advantage back in your hands.

Video Breakdown Analysis of Elite Players

You will get to see video breakdown analysis of some of the best basketball players in the world. You will see how they execute certain skills and make decisions on the basketball floor, so you apply it to your practice sessions to elevate to an even higher level of play.

Shooting, scoring, and advanced dribble moves

In addition, we will practice game-like shooting drills, scoring from the guard position, and advanced dribble moves that all great guards possess.

Leadership and Life Skills that LeBron James uses to help his teammates develop a championship mindset

In addition to teaching you the necessary physical and mental skills to be a great guard, we will teach you leadership and life skills that will make you a successful human being. We will teach you traits that some of the best players have, why that makes them successful, and how these same traits will help you be successful in life.

We will also teach you traits from some of the most successful people outside of the basketball world that will make you successful in the real world in any career path you may choose.

No matter how far you make in the athletic world, there is always life after basketball.

Who can attend?

The camp is for male and female players from 7th to 12th grade.

This is not limited to guards. If you’re a wing player or a post player who is serious about elevating your game to the next level, this camp would be great for you as well.

This camp is NOT for beginners. This is for intermediate to advanced players looking to be placed in a high-intensity environment with competitive drills. This is for players who already possess some good dribble moves and are looking to take their game to the next level.

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