Winter Skills Academy

Skills training is extremely important for players at all levels of basketball, and one of the most overlooked and mismanaged areas of player development. Come learn how to practice at game speed, using efficient and effective movements that will translate when you get into live game action against good players. Coach Lucas Mannes played at the highest level of Canadian basketball and understands what it takes to practice in a way that will actually help players get better in game situations. Please keep in mind, the term “advanced” is relative. What it means in this case is the advanced sessions are only for players with club basketball experience (any club). This year’s Winter Skills Academy will be improved from last year in the following ways:

⁃    Smaller Group sizes for Advanced/Competitive Sessions (12 max)
⁃    Smaller Groups will allow more individual/1 on 1 time with coaches. More attention is always a good thing
⁃    A separate Intermediate option tailored to young player with some experience, but maybe none (or minimal) club basketball experience (20 max)
⁃    2 take home workouts for advanced sessions (digital and physical copies will be sent out) - 1 workout will be individual and the other will be for you and a friend (2 players)

All sessions Sunday afternoons/evenings from January 7-Feb 18 - 6 weeks (skipping Feb 11 Super Bowl Sunday)
