Individual workouts will be the most effective and efficient way to focus on specific needs. Beyond the workout session, upon request, individual workout plans will be designed by the instructor. We also offer buddy lessons if you have a friend that's also interested in joining. More details here.

Basketball training for 3 to 6 players. These sessions will be designed with all players needs in mind. Players will improve their weaknesses and add to their strengths. Being a small group will also allow us to add more game like drills.
