Basketball Fundamentals (Ball Handling & Defense)

Youth Hoops developed a basketball skills development curriculum, which consists of five (5) courses: ball handling, shooting, offensive moves, defense and inside play. Each course runs roughly two (2) months or seven (7) individual sessions.

As each course name suggests, emphasis will be placed on developing that particular skill. Each course will also incorporate "additional" skill development from remaining four (4) courses. In essence, all skills are constantly being development, except that during a given course, emphasis is placed on "Ball Handling & Defense".

During sessions, time will be devoted to developing individual skills. Players will be schooled in all aspects of individual offense and defense during teaching stations. These stations will cover ball handling, shooting, passing, screening and man-to-man defense. Each player will receive tons of “hands-on” experience as they go through various drills aimed at teaching the proper techniques of basketball.

Following station work, players will be taught concepts of team offense: floor spacing, passing-and-cutting, dribble-drives, rotations, etc. Next, there will be “controlled play”. This is where players implement skills developed in real-time.

At the start of each session, the coach will deliver “quote-of-the-day” and relate it to things such as communication, self-improvement, what coaches look for in players, etc.

Scrimmaging Camp

When it’s time to play in a game, does your kid “lose” their mind or “freezes up”? Sometimes, it appears like they just started playing, and don’t know anything? As they say, when the “bullets” start flying, your kid “forgets” what to do!

Playing in a game is a skill, which must be developed. That is why we have the "Scrimmaging Camp"!

During the "Scrimmaging Camp", your kid will be taught floor spacing, what to do with and with out the ball and how to play individual and team defense … all without panicking or becoming shell-shocked! The structure of the "Scrimmaging Camp" is as follows:
