Our Winter Skill League is for boys and girls of all skill levels (ages 7-18) who want to learn the game of basketball and develop their skills.

Our young players enjoy a season of exciting competition and dedicated skill development, while staying active and healthy! Competitive Team Play Drills (I.e., teams compete against each other through non-contact competitive drills), 1x45 min Team skills Development and 1x45 min Team skills Competition.
At an early age, players begin to learn the fundamentals of the game of Basketball, in a fun and positive environment. Through fun games, we introduce our young players to the essential skills of passing, shooting and dribbling. Our Microballers program focuses on developing physical literacy, introducing the necessary skills to advance in the game of basketball, and fostering a love and passion for the game.
This program will introduce players to a number of different passes they will be required to use in live game situations. The fundamentals of passing both from stationary and moving positions will be emphasized and practiced. Players will learn what type of passes they should be making based on the game situation they are in. The players in this program will gain a base comfort level to understand how to throw effective passes to set their teammates up for success. Each training session will include defense, agility and/or strength and conditioning exercises to help build these athletes.
In this program, participants will compete in a variety of shooting drills from spot up set shooting to breakdown move shooting to pick and roll shooting and transition shooting! Players will get repetitions of the various types of shots they see in games. Players will work on actual game type scenario shots at game speed in preparation for real game play! Rather than just doing the drills, players will get to compete during the drills in order to add an element of pressure and fun while working on enhancing their shooting skills.
one on one TRAINING & small group training available!
Our coaches provide 1 on 1/small group socially distanced training. The low coach to player ratio allows for coaches to give players individual focus to hone their current skills and add more dimensions to their game. In this setting players will be doing a 1-hour training session at a high intensity. The training session will include basketball specific drills as well as general strength and fitness exercises. This program is designed to give players the personal trainer interaction and attention necessary to effect change in different elements of each players’ game. Let’s get to work!

Each training session will include defense, agility and/or strength and conditioning exercises to help build these athletes.
