The Importance of Training

Success begins with fundamental skill work and developmental training.

Because a player is quick or can jump doesn’t mean he (or she) will be Successful.
Without skills they will fail.
There are so many players at even the high school level that fail because they Lack Skills.
It’s all about Skills.
That’s how you get to the next level.
AMERICA Other countries are catching up...
USA Basketball has dominated the world, but other countries are catching up to us because of our poor shooting skills.
You saw the trueth of that statement in the last Olympics from Sydney when Lithuania and France were able to stay within range of our "Dream" team and could have won the games. Those two teams, as many others, shot better than our players and often worked better as a "team."
In the last world Championships, our pro-based team could only manage SIXTH place! Something is not working!!!

Americans have fallen blindly in love with the Dunk.
The High Flying Athletic, one-on-one way of playing that dominates the USA (along with mediocre shooting) are the main reasons the the rest of World has Arrived. Don't get me wrong I enjoy seeing a Great Athlete in the Air but that doesn't change the facts.
Team USA lost three consecutive games in the World Championships this summer because USA players couldn’t hit the jump shot, a free-throw, or the open man. Soccer dominant countries (Argentina and Spain) were all of a sudden beating the great American NBA players.
