Exceptional Skills Basketball clinics second session February 10,  2018 – March 10, 2018. This program is open to Friends Academy students as well as the general public. Program fee: $65.00

Exceptional Skills Basketball is a comprehensive program that can be utilized by basketball players, teams and coaches. This program is designed to benefit players regardless of age or experience. Fundamentals and mechanics are stressed to improve each participant’s overall performance. Sessions will include demonstrations of basic plyometric exercises, agility, and running drills that are used to improve speed, jumping and lateral movement. Each Saturday session will focus on various individual skills, such as, moving without the ball, shooting, rebounding, ball handling, defense, and basic strength conditioning. Stations will be utilized and are designed to keep every player active with as little wait time as possible All drills and that are demonstrated in class can be replicated at home with little or no equipment. The main component of Exception Skills Basketball Program is finding enjoyment in the game. It is my goal to get players to understand that we are learning the game but we are also playing to have fun.

Ages and Times for players are as follows:
