 Skills and Drills

The foundation of our basketball training program is our Skills and Drills program. These sessions are for players who are serious about improving their game. Each 90 minute training session is a stand alone workout.

The primary focus of this program is to develop and refine individual offensive skills.

During the regular season, most teams only get to practice 1-2 times a week. Often coaches are busy putting in plays, setting up team defenses and offenses, breaking presses and the type of drills necessary to function as a team. Little time is left for developing individual skills like ball handling and shooting. In the Zone’s Skills and Drills program intends to fill this void by focusing its practice sessions on individual skill development—primarily ball handling and shooting.

Shooting and Ball Handling are skills which require lots and lots of repetition: 100’s of shots a day and countless hours of dribbling. These sessions provide an opportunity for players to practice their craft in a supervised, structured atmosphere.

This program is appropriate for both beginners and more advanced players. Beginners will be challenged the whole time while more skilled players get a chance to refine and practice their basic moves (e.g. crossovers, form shooting) while being challenged with more advanced combination moves. Besides, you can never get enough practice. NBA players still practice basic ball handling and perform routine shooting drills. If the best players on the planet do it, so should our kids.

TEAM/Organization Rates:

Coaches/Managers can purchase bulk packages of lessons to qualify for the volume discounts and then “re-sell” them to their players. When doing this, each player needs to have a waiver form on file, players need to pre-register and the coach/manager handles the up-front lump-sum payment and distributing the lessons.
