“There is no "I" in team, but there is in win.”
~ Michael Jordan
Skill development vs. Team development
How much time does your coaching staff spend on skill development? How much on team development - offenses, defenses, presses and inbounds plays? If you're not helping your players develop their individual skills, then who is? AAU coaches expect players to develop during the season, fall coaches expect players to develop over the summer and team coaches expect players to develop in the off-season. Who's training our players?
Think about it.
Are you running offenses for players who can’t shoot properly? Does your offense include pick and rolls for players who can’t pick or roll? Do you run a dribble drive offense for players who struggle to dribble through traffic, finish hard to the basket or kick out a tough pass to a teammate? Even players who are motivated to practice on their own can’t replicate the high-level skills needed in a game.
We train you so you can train your players.
We know you have a short amount of time to prepare your team and keeping up with the ever-evolving skills and drills is not an easy task. To win games, your players need to have proper shooting mechanics and footwork, be able to handle the ball under pressure, be able to finish in traffic, know one-on-one defensive strategies and be mentally strong. That's where our coaches clinics come in.
You'll walk away from our basketball coaching clinics with tangible takeaways to make your program better that day.
What You Can Expect
In our coaches training, you'll learn a variation of the Pro Shot Shooting System, a program based on the shooting biomechanics and techniques used consistently by the world’s top shooters. The system focuses on six areas of the body to produce accurate, rhythmic and quick shooters.
We'll show you shooting drills that will up your players' game and having them performing elite shots to put points on the board in tough games. Finger rolls. Euro steps. Deep 3s. Fadeaway jump shots. Floaters and more.
We believe every player should work on elite skills.
We'll also cover advanced footwork techniques, high-level ball handling skills, better shot selection, defensive strategies, decision making, and improving a player's overall basketball IQ.
We focus a lot on the mental game at GRIT and we'll share with you how you can help your players handle adversity, build confidence, shake off mistakes, stay positive, and practice leadership techniques.
In our training, we follow a five-step process when teaching a player a new skill:
1. Understanding techniques through film and demonstration.
2. Executing skills in slow motion, working up to game speed.
3. Performing the skills against pressure.
4. Practicing the skills in game situations.
5. Performing the skills in an actual game with the understanding and mentality needed to consistently impact the game.
Your coaches can come to us or we'll travel to you. We can do a great coaches training session in 3 to 5 hours or or we can design a program that fits your schedule and needs.
