Basketball Elite

Tuesdays, 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM

Basketball Elite offers advance training, skills, drills and game play to help players continually progress and enjoy high-level basketball. Not only do we work on core skills—we also develop each player’s “basketball I.Q.” so that skills and strategy become embedded together. Participants will gain the tools and confidence to compete in organized basketball here at the JCC and beyond.

Basketball Private Lessons

Ages 5 and up
Skills coaching and training for individuals or small groups is ideal for serious players that want to hone in on specific areas of play.  Private coaching lessons can focus on ball handling, shooting form, accuracy, footwork, balance, post or perimeter scoring moves, defensive principles, strengthening, conditioning and rebounding. Private instruction can also help boost overall basketball IQ, confidence, aggressiveness, and mental toughness. Small group sessions incorporate team play.
