Who is this for?
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 foundational skills and are looking to take their game to the next level.
This is for any player that wants to become a high-level playmaker. Every coach would love to have 5 players on the floor with the skills, decision-making, and leadership of elite playmakers.
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 playmaker, 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 players and will show tactics and little tricks that these playmakers 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 player to an elite player.
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 situations. We will teach you how to adapt to all of the different kinds of scorers 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 any position on the floor, and advanced dribble moves that all great playmakers possess.
Leadership and Life Skills that the best leaders use to help his teammates develop a championship mindset
In addition to teaching you the necessary physical and mental skills to be a great playmaker, we will teach you leadership and life skills that will make you a successful human being.
