Skills & Drills | Larry Hughes Basketball Academy

Skills & Drills

This is the core of our organization. Athletes grades 4-12 are given information to improve their basketball IQ and their game that is applied, implemented and worked on as often as possible to create habit and instinct in basketball functions. There are up to 40 athletes in a session, so a very common talking point is to “compete not compare” and that competition is both individual and within the group. Athletes are constantly reminded that their individual improvement is based on their work ethic and attitude, not the athlete next to them.

Skills & Drills sessions are held three to four times per week, including some Saturday mornings. For a complete calendar of our sessions, please click here.

Juniors Skills & Drills

Our Juniors Program is focused on athletes between the grades K-3, where these young athletes will learn the introductory fundamentals to play and body movement. Programming will consist of exercises and activities that focus on basic athletic skills such as running, stopping, jumping, throwing and catching. Athletes must have these basic skills to progress to basketball fundamentals. It is also imperative at this age that athletes start to learn fundamentals of team play. There will be basketball-specific activities as well as non-basketball activities that incorporate working together, handling objection and deductive reasoning. Sessions will be ninety minutes in length on Saturday mornings.
