Why should you join the SFBA High School Summer Basketball Development Program?

Are you an incoming freshmen? 

Going from middle school to high school is a big transition for youth basketball players. Often players and families are not ready for the demands required to play at the high school level. Some high schools have nearly 100 players trying out for one team. Most of those players will not make the team. Our program will prepare players with the skills, basketball knowledge, and expectations needed to compete at the high school level. High school basketball tryouts are challenging. Coaches will choose the players that give them the best chance to win games. Use the summer to develop your skills and show your high school coaches that you deserve a roster spot.

Did you get cut from your last high school basketball tryout?

Getting cut from your high school basketball tryout is not the end of the world. But it does leave you with one less year to play basketball. After going through tryouts, you probably noticed the skill level, athletic ability, and competitive nature at the high level. Use the summer to dedicate yourself to improving your skills to give you the best chance to see your name on the final roster next season.

Did you make your high school team but receive little to no minutes in games?

Playing time is earned and often difficult to receive if you're not a starter. Players have to prove to their coaches that they have the appropriate skill, IQ, athletic ability, and competitive mindset to get on the floor during games. The coach's job is to put the best players on the court to give the team the best chance to win each game. Your job as a player is to prove to the coach that you deserve to be on the court. If you want to increase your playing time for next season, the summer is the best chance you have to do that. 

Are you a starter or player that contributed to your team but want to take your game to another level? 

If you were a player that started or a bench player that contributed heavily during your high school season, there is always room to grow. Each season players should evaluate their game and look for areas they want to improve. Maybe your shooting percentage needs to improve. Perhaps you want to work on improving your overall defensive ability. You're looking to improve your vertical jump this summer for more explosiveness in your jumping ability. Whatever your goals are, the summer is the time to make these improvements.

Are you a high school senior looking to prepare for your upcoming college season? 

Many high school players have the goal of playing in college. Having the chance to spend the summer refining your skills and getting in the best shape you can for your upcoming college season will give you the best opportunity to show your new coach you're ready to step on the court.

This is a four week program

Breaks down to $300/week

Week 1 (Intro Phase)

  • Each player will take part in our evaluation process on day 1. We will assess their baseline speed, strength, mobility, stability, and basketball skills. 

  • Our coaches will help each athlete reinforce their fundamental skills in our intro basketball development from correcting shooting form, footwork, ball handling, passing, and defense. 

  • Our intro athletic performance program focuses on proper movement patterns and mobility, and stability while performing exercises, athletic movements, and basketball drills. 

  • This week will reinforce movement patterns to reduce the chances of injury and improve performance.

Week 2 (Foundational Phase)

  • Week 2 builds upon the concepts from Week 1. Now that players have learned and demonstrated proper fundamental skills and movement patterns, we advance each exercise and drill level. Each drill simulates everyday in-game actions that focus on shooting, passing, ball-handling, and defense. 

  • We also introduce competition drills from 1 on 1, 2 on 2, and 3 on 3. 

  • The level of our strength and conditioning program increases, as well with the addition of plyometrics. 

Week 3 (Advanced Phase)

  • Week 3 builds upon Week 2. Basketball drills now focus on advanced offensive and defensive concepts. Here we advance our training to more five-on-five actions. 

  • Week 3 is the most challenging week of the program. 

  • Athletes execute drills and exercises at game speed.

Week 4 (Recovery Phase)

  • During week 4, we are no longer teaching new concepts. Each drill builds consistency during in-game situations. 

  • Team concepts are a significant portion of our final week. 

  • Recovery is a significant portion of our final week. Athletes focus on exercises that help each athlete maintain the positive adaptations they've gained while allowing their bodies to recover for the start of their basketball tryouts and season.

  • End-of-program evaluation. We will compare each athlete's initial assessment to the final testing numbers to show areas of improvement and what each player should focus on moving forward.
