Developing Basketball I.Q.
Our 3 on 3 Academy offers an exciting opportunity to enhance individual and team skills. The smaller team size increases offensive and defensive opportunities for each player as well encourages teamwork through team play (pick and rolls, give and go's, back door cuts etc.). The intent of the 3 on 3 games is to provide game-like situations that prepare athletes for 5 on 5 play.
Our 5 on 5 academy prepares athletes for their season and to participate in our college tour program (Half-Time Play and/or Elite Camps). During our 5 on 5 academy, we focus on overall Basketball I.Q, Team and Individual Skill Development. Athletes will game a better understanding on how to play on both ends of the court.
