Term 4 Training – Register now.

In basketball, so many players miss out on proper coaching. Whether they play domestic or representative basketball many players are coached by parents or individuals who despite their best intentions don’t know how to get the best out of them.

For me, over a thirty-year coaching journey, one of the things I have not enjoyed watching is players who could have been so much better not realise their potential as they are not exposed to the proper development of their skills

This is the main reason I have developed my basketball academy, where we aim to address this lack of development with a proven program I have developed from those 30 years of experience of developing skills and fundamentals for players from all standards and age groups.
A program is put in place from day one that develops a player’s dribbling, ball handling, shooting, scoring, passing and general basketball knowledge.
Players progress at their own pace and with as little pressure as possible. All players and parents are given constant feedback on this progress.
In a new initiative, we will be providing online training for players who can’t attend our “live” sessions or want to to do some extra study and homework on what they have been taught through our live sessions.
This program is available for all players from all clubs and is designed to complement any training from any other team or club.
Once players have progressed far enough and are ready and once we have enough players to do so, there will also be opportunities to form teams to play in tournaments and go on things such as road trips to play country Associations and clubs.
