What to expect in a Boys Lil Dribbler Training Academy
We have two goals for your son:
1) learn movement
2) learn skills
Each session will focus on developing these two areas.
If boys learn “movement” at this age, they will become better athletes when they mature. We want these boys to learn such critical movements such as, pivoting, skipping, running, shuffling laterally, hopping, landing, running backwards and so on.
Learning basketball skills is accomplished by giving them a steady diet each day of fast paced drills/teaching such areas as: triple threat, passing and catching, pivoting, jump stop, layups/shooting, and defense.
Frequently asked questions:
What height are the rims? We lower the rims to 8 feet
What size basketball is used? We use a small youth 27" basketball. Perfect for this age
What if we my boy has never played before - any worries?
No worries!! Your son will be placed in a gym with similar boys. We simply want them all to have a chance to learn and shine!
Who will be training my boy - coaching him?
Our site directors are carefully hand selected professionals that pass extensive background checks and have impressive basketball experience - but also have the ability to teach and motivate young players. They will handle the instruction/drills each league day, but we actually encourage parents to "roll up their sleeves" and step onto the court to help with drills. It's a blast!
