We are THE BASKETBALL MOVEMENT
Movement is defined as an act of changing physical location or position or of having this changed. Movement can be small, it can be large. Movement can be impactful, it can be obsolete. No matter what movement occurs, change too, will occur. Will the basketball movement be large? Will the basketball movement be impactful? Will the basketball movement cause change? We think so.
The Basketball Movement is a new type of basketball experience, that helps define a player’s ability to think on the court, off the court, and on the way to the next court. We have created a basketball format with skills, game type settings, educational speakers, public speaking components, and of course, hard core, leave-it-all-on-the-floor basketball experience. Through the various components that make up The Basketball Movement, we are attacking the game at every level. With Open Clinics, Skill Development Workouts, Speed and Agility training, and The Basketball Movement Invitational, we are truly a one-stop basketball experience.
We will have our Open Clinics every Saturday from 9-11am for all boys and girls in 2nd through 8th grade. These are one day mini-camps designed to give basketball fundamental and skills coaching in a camp-like atmosphere. Players will come together to learn skills, basketball drill work, and then scrimmage in a two hour session.
The Basketball Movement realizes the importance for building confidence in youth. To ensure that all youth are developing their skills while also having an opportunity to be a part of a team, we now have the ability to place your child on a team without the fear of being cut. Our philosophy is that every child should have a chance to get better while also playing the game they love. Leave no child behind.
Interested in becoming a better basketball player? We offer Skill Development Workouts, Speed & Agility training, and you can even rent our shooting GUN for repetition shooting on your own. In addition to physical workouts, we offer film analysis, player evaluation, and player marketing portfolios.
The Basketball Movement is proud of the overwhelmingly positive results of the Euro Prep training curriculum. This innovative program is specifically geared toward teaching American players what to expect when they embark on their professional basketball career in Europe. Although the game of basketball is roughly the same, there a various components of the FIBA game that rookies should know before heading abroad. Players will gain an understanding of on-court differences in terms of various European styles of play, strategies, moves and tempo. In addition, players will also be taught the various ways in which the European game is officiated differently than in America.
