Outline For the Year

We will incorporate high level workouts all year around broke up into Pre-season, In-season, and Post-season workouts, to develop athletes to compete at an elite level year around. The frequency and intensity of workouts will develop player’s all-around game to be able to compete at the highest level in the basketball circuit. We will throughout the year vow to try to get the best out of each player to get them to a place where they will have an opportunity to compete at the next level. We are not preparing athletes for recreational purposes, we are preparing them to be next level scholars and athletes.

Pre-Season Months

[November, December, January, February]

These workouts are geared toward getting in game shape and developing a competitive atmosphere and mental toughness to sustain during the course of a high level of play. These workouts will consist of strength, agility, footwork, conditioning, finishing with and through contact, all created to be much more adverse than any possible game situation. Workouts will be on and off the court so bring basketball shoes and track shoes during these months, and most importantly a mentality to be the best you can be. All players will be required to have jump ropes with them at every workout. There will also be a mix of on court developmental drills to develop the skill set of all players. “Great players are in great shape, NOT good shape.” This is a next level program, geared for the next level player.


In-Season Months

[March, April, May, June, July]

Workouts will be on the court only, and more court/team specific. While the workout types will shift, the intensity will not. These workouts will be geared toward team offensive, and defensive concepts, roles of each member, establishing the playing style, and how to play together as a TEAM. There will be a reduction in on court conditioning, but it will still remain to sustain the player’s level of play during these months. This will allow players to integrate the skills learned, and competitive edge developed in the pre-season months, to be incorporated into a game and team setting.

Post-Season Months

[August, September, October]

These months are NOT off season, while it is a period where the players are given to recover from an intense year and leading back into their respective elementary/middle/high school seasons, we do not stop working. These workouts will be all on court and involve strictly on court conditioning and specific drills to help better the IQ of players. Such as passing off the dribble and making a one handed push pass, reading the defense off a pick and roll, understanding angles on the floor, etc. This is a vital part of the process to developing your understanding for the game.
