L.A.C.E.R. Afterschool Programs » Basketball


In basketball, skill development is the most important foundation for success. Start by learning the essential skills that establish a foundation for success – like a triple threat position, form shooting, defensive stance, and pivoting. Next, we move into the common basketball tasks players need to master – shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding and defense. And finally, we move onto the decisions and actions players make in game situations, to help give their team an advantage over an opponent. For example, knowing how to make a back door cut, execute a pick and roll, or come over from the weak side to take a charge. All athletes are invited.
