Program Focus 

 

Ball Handling- focus on skill development in ball control while dribbling, and learning to be productive in getting around defenders, finding openings to pass or shoot

 

Shooting- focus on skill development and knowledge of mechanic and/or body movement- details include; stance and balance, holding, follow-through, elbow alignment

 

Defense- focus on learning to incorporate strategies, alignments, and positioning that a team uses to prevent the opposing offense from scoring baskets. Learning defense requires the ability for adapting in quickness, footwork, and a deep understanding of the fundamentals

 

Agility- focus on incorporating drills that produce the understanding for the ability to adapt;  accelerate, decelerate, and change direction quickly while maintaining good body control. Basketball is not played in a straight line, but instead requires constant changes of direction. Therefore, acceleration is an extremely important aspect of agility in Basketball.

 

Transition Drills - The purpose and focus for a transition drill/system is to take advantage of the opponent's break downs while they are changing from offense to defense or from defense to offense. This drill focus is designed to teach the ability take control of and lengthen the transition period 

 

Application- athletes will focus on understanding essential basketball skills, developing knowledge of rules and terminology, proper techniques, and safety awareness through simulated game play or scrimmage- extending the opportunity for athletes to apply focus components, also extending the opportunity to ask questions furthering the athlete’s knowledge and awareness of the game
