MBA Elite Personal/Small Group Training Program
Personal training at MBA is offered to players of all levels. Private training is the most individualized program that MBA offers. A typical training session will entail a group of 2-5 players, per trainer. The training group is determined by skill development and/or ability. The MBA trainer forms his/her own groups, by adding or subtracting players, to customize the perfect training session for his/her clients.
Our professional training staff will fine tune a player’s fundamental package, so that there are no flaws in their game. Offensive concepts of basketball are the main focus of the workouts including proper shooting technique and ball handling. Private training sessions are broken down into three phases: shooting, ball handling, and live play.
It is important that basketball players understand how to shoot the basketball properly from the ground up. In other words, technique starts from the positioning of the feet, to the alignment of the hips, up to their hand placement. MBA trainers will make sure jump shot mechanics are perfect every time the athlete shoots the ball. As a player advances through the learning stages, more advanced shooting drills will be incorporated into their workouts. Players must be able to spot shoot, shoot off the dribble, shoot off the triple threat and shoot off screens.
Ball Handling Phase
Ball handling is the other key offensive concept that our trainers work hard to implement into a player’s fundamental package. Ball handlers must have the basketball on a string. In other words, a player needs to be able to do anything with the ball that they want to. Players sharpen these skills through stationary one hand and two hand ball handling drills to build hand strength and quickness. As a player advances through the learning stages, more advanced ball handling drills will be incorporated to their workouts. Players must learn to change directions, on the run, while maintaining possession of the basketball. Players must have multiple ball handling moves to enable them to freeze defenders and shoot,, pass, or drive with the basketball.
We will use, when needed, our new state of the art video equipment during training sessions. It is proven that kids are typically visual learners so by using video analysis, we can better show our players their training sessions to help them improve their games. From shooting form to 1 v 1 moves we can breakdown a players skills to help them become a better player.
