The VABA “Skills Academy” is one of the most fun and effective basketball training offerings available. The Skills Academies feature an extremely convenient schedule designed to effectively teach and reteach the fundamentals of the game of basketball.
Skills Academies incorporate One (1) to Three (3) Hour workouts (Individual and/or Team Skills), one to four times per week, over the span of a three to eight-week period of time. One of the best features of this program is the way in which our coaching staff teaches the individual skills and then takes the process one step further by developing those skills in a team setting (through 2-on-2, 3-on-3, 4-on-4 and 5-on-5 game sessions) so young players can better apply the fundamentals to a competitive game environment.
Participants have a few choices when considering this unique program. He/she may sign up for the INDIVIDUAL (or TEAM SKILLS sessions - offered in Summer) or both the INDIVIDUAL & TEAM SKILLS sessions on either one, two or three days a week.
INDIVIDUAL SKILLS Sessions (Session #1) focuses solely on individual skills (ball-handling, shooting, offensive moves, etc.). The TEAM SKILLS Sessions (offered in the Summer) teach how to incorporate, apply and combine the individual skills into the team setting. Offensive skills (shooting, passing, ball-handling) and defensive skills (stance, on-ball and off-ball) are taught with the aim at developing skill, character and a love for the game of basketball.
Because sessions are scheduled weekly, athletes are taught and corrected consistently; consequently, progress can be evaluated over a three-week span to ensure learning takes place.
Our Academies are designed to be convenient, effective and fun!
Parents are welcome to come and observe all teaching sessions!
