Our professional trainer, Jeff Trainer, a former collegiate player, is regarded as the finest basketball trainer in the state of Alaska. Jeff is a basketball workaholic, providing opportunities for kids age 5 all the way to the collegiate level.
What is basketball training? Basketball training is different than a regular basketball practice. Individual player development is the focus in training. Coach Jeff will demonstrate a skill and then have players perform the concept. Jeff corrects as needed throughout the sessions. Dribbling, footwork, and shooting are three of the main components of skill training. Toward the end of sessions Coach Jeff may introduce competitive situations where players use the skills learned during training so they can practice in game-like situations.
