Basketball Clinics

The Basketball Experience is excited to announce the start of basketball skill clinics!

The clinics are 2 hours of training where athletes between the ages of 5 and 18 years old learn the fundamentals of one specific skill, while edging into more intermediate and advanced skill development (depending on the athlete). For example, one clinic can be on shooting, the next about ball handling, etc. We place an emphasis on helping players work beyond what they believe they are capable of, and help them get comfortable with the uncomfortable, because that is where the majority of development occurs!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each clinic will cover a different skill:

- Shooting Fundamentals (Form, Footwork, Etc.)

- Dribbling & Ball Handling

- Passing, Reading the Defense, & Ball Movement

- Defensive & Rebounding Fundamentals

- Basketball 101

- And more

Our clinics consist of a total of 2 hours of training. They are tailored for every player between the ages of 5 and 18 years old (co-ed). Each drill is intentionally picked and adapted based on the skill levels of each player.

2. Creating Shooting Opportunities - Learn strategies for getting open for shots both with and without the basketball, such as reading defensive setups, using screens effectively, creating space against tight defense, and getting shots over closing out defenders.


3. Shooting Under Pressure - Simulate game-like pressure to improve focus, accuracy, and confidence when taking shots. Learn how to focus your mind on the right things, and block out the negatives.
