Basketball Match


Athletics is an integral component of our mind, body and spirit approach to youth development. It is through our group training sessions that we're able to challenge and motivate our students. 

During training, students learn how to navigate the balance between being a team player and a leader. They learn effective communication and foundational fitness skills that will help them excel in anything they chose to pursue in life!


Coach Greg Ellison of Y.E.D.A. (Youth Education and Development Academy, a non-profit) has partnered with Coach Donell Ausley of Courtology to bring basketball and fitness training to your child. 


Our ATHLETICS program is designed to teach fundamental basketball skills and athletic skills training. Students can expect to learn and improve upon:

  • Defensive Positioning

  • Ball Handling skills

  • Basketball IQ

  • Shooting Mechanics

  • Fitness Strength & Conditioning

  • Dribbling skills
