If you have the passion and are ready to pursue your ambitious dream, we can help. There are no magic wands or guarantees, just hard work and extreme player development. This is focused player development work to build the arsenal of individual skills critical to succeed within the team framework next season and beyond.
If you are challenged by playing post when your college position may be guard- then you need to work on these skills in the off season.
Serious perimeter and post play development with specialists available in all facets of the game.
The odds are against you, but we believe chasing hard to reach dreams is a valuable pursuit in building character.
And speaking of odds, the sport of basketball is the toughest of all, not only for boys and their chances of a college scholarship, but also for girls, though it must be noted that this sport is the only one where statistics for female athletes are readily available.
Of all the girls who participate in high school basketball, only one in 34, or 3.1%, attain a college basketball scholarship and only one in 5000, or 0.02%, eventually make it to the WNBA.
The odds of a male basketball player making it to college hoops or the pros are even longer. Only one in 35, or 2.9%, goes on from high school to play in the college game and, of all the high school basketball players in the U.S., only one in 3300, or 0.03%, make it to the NBA. Picturing that figure in team terms, only one fortunate and talented young man out of every seven high school starting fives will receive a college basketball scholarship. And only one incredibly gifted and determined young man out of every 660 starting fives will play in the pros.
Those are the facts. Talent helps, but persistence and quality coaching are critical to pursuing your passion with purpose and power.
