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.

The Sunday session is 60 minutes. These sessions are for both boys and girls.

>>2015 FALL LEAGUES (MIDDLE SCHOOL / HIGH SCHOOL)
Coming – August 2015 will be the 3rd Annual ABA Fall League. Our Fall Leagues have grown tremendously since the 1st season in 2013. We look forward to making the High School and Middle School leagues even better in 2015. Congratulations to MS Champions – BKR and HS Champions - IND. Help us spread the word for next fall!
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.
For More Details and Registration info – see below:
Coming – August 2015
>>2014 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 $20 each session. Each players will receive an ABA T-shirt. See registration form below:
