5 ON 5 comprehensive basketball training program is designed to help youngsters make significant improvement in their skills and understanding of basketball. We specialize in teaching the game by breaking it down into its fundamental skills and techniques.

Our philosophy is that by teaching the right techniques of all the skills (dribbling and ball handling, passing, shooting, defensive position and footwork, moving without the ball, pick-and-roll, rebounding, seeing the court, etc.) of the game, and by drilling those skills through repetition, our students will make dramatic progress in their proficiency as basketball players.

Our program is open to male and female students from first grade through college age and beyond. Appointments are required for attending classes. You are welcome to observe a training session prior to sending your child to a class.
