Players should expect to learn different ways to: receive a pass from a teammate, move after they pass the ball, and how to get open in order to receive a pass from a teammate. We will also begin to teach different two-man game movements like give and go’s, backdoor cuts, draw and dumps and the best ways to defend each of them.

Our fundamental shooting class that focuses on what it takes to become a great shooter and dodger. Players will be taught proper throwing/shooting forms and how to generate more power in their shots. Learning the correct footwork for each dodge (split, jab, roll, face) starting at a slow pace is critical before progressing into full speed. In order to become strong dodgers we believe that it is important that players have the proper footwork and technique before ultimately incorporating the upper body and the proper shooting form. In one of our classes players can expect to take close to 150 shots or more while being challenged by our coaches to focus on their accuracy and power. 
CORE 3: GAMEPLAY EVOLUTION

On the opposite side, players will be taught defensive positioning and the beginnings of team defense and how to help when your player does not have the ball and the timing of slides. By the end of this class all players will have knowledge in attacking and defending a 3v3 situation, the basis of team offense and defense.
