Perfect for players who are looking to get reps in game like conditions with less coaching and more playing. If you are not getting much playing time, this can also be a great way to stay in game shape. Focus is more restorative and low impact quickness drills and prehab routines rather than hard speed and agility during regular season. This can help girls get ready for select basketball.

Important…Real Important! This is a 8th time program in response to needs shared in the feedback of students, families, coaches and sports science journals. We can only allow 20 kids per session. We have no idea how registration will go at this time of year. We suspect we will have sellouts in at least the two older sessions. The summer session and two of the fall sessions sold out. This could sell out in 1 day or it could not make. (We need 15 kids to make.) I would strongly advise you to sign up quickly and to share with any friends you would like in your pickup group that would add value or convenience (carpooling, etc.) Yes, this is partly a self serving sales plug, but I also have had many requests for a program like this so I don’t want you left out if you were one of the people requesting this. Inevitably, I get the calls after the signups are full and I can’t bend on this program no matter how much I value you and your family as customers.
- 10 Week Session
- Refereed Pickup – to reward fouled players, keep safety and have some structure to the “unstructured play.”
- Loose Play w/o Instruction. No trainers chiming in. Absolutely no parent coaching. This will help your child have fun and also take ownership of their game.
- Players will come into gym, and write on an index card 3 things they would like to try in that 40 minutes of scrimmage time. At the end of the scrimmage time, they will grade ( 1- 10) themselves on if they tried the skill. (Not if they succeeded.) This will encourage experimentation and integration of drills into skills they use. No one is to review their card. It is for the player. If players want to email Coach Geoff and ask how they are progressing on a stated goal, coach Geoff can send a number back rating as he viewed it.
