Competitive & Instructional Small Group Summer Workouts

Small Group Summer Workouts are for players (typically travel A & B level for grades 4-8) looking to improve their fundamental skills and gain a competitive edge in a structured environment.  The focus of each small group session is to incorporate advanced 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.

 

 

Rising Grades = Grade entering in the Fall of 2023

Spots are first come first serve & limited per half court. If sessions fill, players will be put on a waitlist but we will do our best to add sessions (if possible).
