Basketball Skills Training
Our basketball skills training program is a part of our overall athletics program, designed as a key part of our holistic strategy for youth development. We use group training sessions to stimulate and encourage our students through mentorship and coaching, helping to strengthen their integrity and provide them with necessary life skills.
During these sessions, they learn how to be part of a team, but also take the lead when necessary. They learn effective communication and foundational fitness skills that will help them excel in anything they chose to pursue in life!
