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, Black Friday, the Holiday Hoops basketball fundamentals camp each year just after Christmas, and our MLK Day Camp in January.
