BASKETBALL SCHOOL for all boys, Rising Grades 2-7
Every Sunday, October 28 – December 2
Director: McCallie Varsity Basketball Coach: David Conrady
Location: 2nd floor of the SAC – Wood Floor
Learning is progressive, each week will be different and more advanced. If you cannot attend all 6 weeks you will still have fun and learn!
The School will focus on:
Right and left handed layups — Not easy but a must when dealing with tryouts and competition.
Speed layups — Layups in a game are MUCH faster than in practice, and that is why so many layups are missed in games.
Cuts — How to get open.
Spacing — So it doesn’t look like a young kids’ soccer game with everyone around the ball.
Passing and cutting — What to do and how to play.
BEEF — Shooting with Balance, Elbow in, Eyes on target, Follow through in the basket.
3-man weave — Passing, moving and thinking and shooting layups all at one time.
1-on-1 Defense— Stay between your man and basket.
Team Defense — Trying to stay between your man and basket.
3-on-3 passing and cutting — This is a great exercise as everyone is involved.
4-on4 passing and cutting — This is great as we start getting closer to 5-on-5, but with no one getting lost and everyone involved.
Ball handling — Stationary and moving, changing speed and direction
