Competitive Small Group Summer Workouts

Competitive Small Group Summer Workouts are for players (typically travel level) looking to improve their fundamental skills and gain a competitive edge in a structured environment. The focus of each 75-minute small group session is to incorporate competitive drills while teaching team concepts . Players will work on shooting techniques, ball handling moves, screening and defensive concepts. The court will be split up into small groups at each basket (6-9 players) and are directed by experienced coaches.
