Programs/Clinics

1 ON 1 PERSONAL TRAINING
Individual skill workouts that cover all the fundamental areas in our Group skill work. After a careful evaluation, we will tailor workouts to cover the areas of skill that need the most improvement. We require a minimum of 6 individual workouts to hold a time slot. Each of these workouts is 1 hour.

SKILL DEVELOPMENT GROUPS
These are our most popular training workouts. We train players on all facets of offensive basketball: ball-handling, dribble moves, footwork, shooting technique, passing and receiving, and basketball concepts. Our group development workouts are set up as a series of 8-12 workouts over 2-3 months. Players typically train twice a week. Each training session is 1 hour. We place players in groups based on age, grade level, and skill level.

CAMPS AND CLINICS
At certain times of the year, we offer specialized camps and coaching clinics. All of these will be designed to help individual players or offer coaching strategies and tactics.  We offer a FREE clinic each fall to all the youth coaches in the city of Huntsville. We also have Fundamental Camps in November on Veterans Day, the Holiday Hoops basketball fundamentals camp each year just after Christmas, and our MLK Day Camp in January.

>>2014 FALL SKILL DEVELOPMENT TRAINING

Each Fall, we have 2 months of group skill development training sessions to prepare high school and middle school players for the start of their school practices.  These training sessions are the BEST way to make sure you go into practice – sharp and in practice shape.  Each high intensity session is 60 minutes.  These sessions are for both boys and girls in middle school and high school.

In addition to the high school and middle school training sessions, we also have time slots for Post Player only Training,  1/1 Personal Training, VertiMax training, Sunday Shooting session, and Beginning Basketball.

All of our Fall programs with days, times, and places are posted on the Fall Training Schedule below:

>>2014 FALL LEAGUES (MIDDLE SCHOOL / HIGH SCHOOL)

2013 was the first year of the ABA Fall League and it was a great success.  We look forward to year #2 with excitement and the prospects of growing the High School league by a few teams AND by starting up the ABA Middle School Fall League.  Both Leagues will start play the week of 8/17/14.  There is ONE MAJOR DIFFERENCE in the HS and MS Leagues — the HS League is mandated by the AHSAA that only 3 players from a school can be on a team together (the 50% Rule) – this affects any player who will be playing JV or Varsity basketball in the 2014 season.  The MS league is not governed by the 50% Rule – thus, FULL MIDDLE SCHOOOL TEAMS can play in the ABA Fall League – but must be coached by a parent or volunteer that is not one of the full time coaches.

Player workout for team placement – 3:00 p.m. – Sunday, 8/10/14 at the SE YMCA – back gym – 1000 Weatherly Rd, HSV 35802.

>>FALL MINI-LEAGUE (GRADES 3-4-5)

Our Mini-League is a combination of Skill Development and Team Play.  Each Sunday – starting 8/24/14, we will have a Skill Development session followed by small group games and 5 on 5 games.  Each Training session will last about 75 minutes.  During the Skill Development session, we will focus on Ball-handling & dribble moves, Footwork & live ball moves, and Shooting technique & drill work.  We will also integrate basketball concepts into the game portion of the session.  We plan to continue the Mini-League through the middle of October.

 

Registration will be “drop in” style.  Instead of keeping up with Mini-League team standings, we will keep up with individual points.  If a player’s team wins in small group games or 5 on 5, they can earn a point.  When we finish the league in October, those players with the most points will be rewarded with the Champions T-shirt.  By keeping up  with winners in this fashion, it will allow new players to add as we go along.

 

The cost is $25 each session.  Each players will receive an ABA T-shirt.  See registration form below:

SENIOR SHOWCASE CHARITY BASKETBALL GAMES

This game was started in March of 2011 as a way to celebrate basketball in north Alabama and raise money and awareness for a great organization – the Boys and Girls Clubs of North Alabama.  ALL proceeds from the game go to the Boys and Girls Clubs.  This game features some of the top girls and boys players in the Huntsville-Metro area.  We have a dunk contest and 3-point contest between the two games.  The Senior Showcase Charity game is held the weekend after the AHSAA Final 48 in early March.
