What will players learn?
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. Perimeter Moves (The New Triple Threat) Learn how to apply Attack and Counter Fundamentals when you catch the ball on the perimeter. You will learn how to improve your perimeter moves, footwork, and become very difficult to guard — allowing you to easily beat your defender from triple threat, score more points, and become a more valuable player. 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. Ballhandling 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.
