At GRIT Basketball, it's not about us. It’s about you.
It’s not about our goals. It’s about your goals. Our job is to guide you on your personal basketball journey to becoming an elite basketball player, no matter where you are today. (Check out some of our college and pro players.)
How we do that is by studying today's game. Not yesterday's.
Basketball is constantly evolving and so is our training. We teach you the actual skills you will actually need to play at a higher level. And that's not layup lines and 3-man weave. Sorry coaches.
If you’re here, you were born to play basketball. It’s what unites us. No matter your background, your skill level, or your age. We all have a singular goal - to get better. We work to get better at coaching to help you get better at playing.
We can be a little pushy at GRIT.
We push the players and coaches we train to work hard, try new things, and improve their confidence and mental game. We know it's not easy learning the mechanics of high level shots, advanced dribbling skills, and proper shot selection but we also know that if you're not making mistakes, you're not getting better. Our players know this and they also know we can't take them out of the game!
We develop players who score.
Anyone can shoot. But can you score?
At GRIT, you'll develop the fundamentals to score - layups, jump shots, 3 point shooting, and free throws. But you'll also learn how and when to perform more elite shots. Finger rolls. Euro steps. Deep 3s. Fadeaway jump shots. Floaters and more. And you'll shoot enough in training to score in your games. Be prepared. There's not a lot of standing around at GRIT!
We'll help you become a complete player.
If you can't dribble, you can't score. If your footwork is bad, you can't attack the basket. If you can't defend, you'll be on the bench. And if you don't see the floor and make good decisions, you won't play at a higher level. That's why we teach you advanced footwork techniques, high-level ball handling skills, shot selection, defensive strategies, decision making and improving your basketball IQ. Besides shooting, most players say that confidence is what they need to improve so we talk a lot about the mental game, becoming a leader, working through failure and mistakes, and having a short memory - important in basketball!
A little about us.
What started as a couple of passionate coaches training a few players at night has turned into a movement. Over the years, as we (Coach Kerry and Coach Wade) coached high school and college teams, we realized how little time other coaches were spending on individual skill development and the skills that were being taught weren't the skills players needed to play elite basketball. Players just weren't game ready.
So our mission became to raise the bar on how basketball is taught - and played - at the youth and high school levels.
We feel that to make big leaps, you need to take big risks. Incremental change won’t get you to where you want to go fast enough. That's why we design our training sessions and clinics as safe environments for players to experiment with new skills.
We are relentless in unleashing the potential of every player. We invite you to give us a try... for free! Register for a free pre-GRIT training session today. We look forward to welcoming you into our GRIT Family!
