Basketball Lessons Can Make You a Better Player!
Individual training is an effective means for a player to improve. Your Choice Basketball Lessons helps players improve their game through private & semi-private training sessions. We work closely with each player, parent, and coach to develop and implement training programs that provide measureable results.
Your Choice Basketball Lessons are for boys and girls ages 9 and up who want to improve their basketball game.
The basics of basketball are introduced in a structured learning environment where the player does not feel the pressure of performance. As the player's skill level increases, the confidence of feeling prepared in a competitive game situation will come naturally.
- The coaching environment allows for the tailoring of drills and techniques to suit the individual’s goals whether that is wanting to make a team, get more playing time, or develop basic fundamentals.
- Each 45-minute session is structured to improve and build upon your current level of play. We design our standard sessions for one or two players. You can sign up for a Six-Lesson Package (recommended) …or a Single Session.
- Shooting Workouts focus on:
- Form Shooting
- Shooting off the catch, shooting off the dribble, shooting off screens & shooting accuracy
- Proper footwork & pivoting
- Increased Shooting Percentage & Increased SHOOTING CONFIDENCE!
