Our B.E.S.T. Program:

B.E.S.T. Basketball Chicago was founded in 2012 as a basketball skills development program to foster youth players' love for the game. We take each child seriously and meet them where they are skills-wise each week, then challenge them to improve and be proud of their progress. Our very experienced staff of coaches uses differentiation in our teaching methods so each player is able to improve. B.E.S.T.'s program is constantly re-analyzed by our owners and staff to be sure we are using the game of basketball and the disciplines within the game to help your children learn about the hard work necessary to achieve success in basketball, in their academics, and in their lives. Each large group and small group stretching drill, skills station, and competition is intended to respect your child's ability to be their very best and challenge them to grow. For the past two years we had not been publicizing game times prior to game days since we found so many of our players showed up just for their games and totally missed the point of our program, which is skills development. We get in the gym for three hours and work on improving basketball skills. This model has worked very well for Chicago area hoopers ranging in skill level from complete beginner to very experienced. We have many players who play on their grammar school, high school, and competitive club teams who keep coming to us for the correct and challenging repetitions we provide. Every player all the way up to the most skilled and experienced professional needs to get their work in. Our three hour sessions include excellent instruction and correct repetitions. Each session also includes challenging and well-coached competitions that are very fun for the players. We divide our players according to skill levels, not age levels, so that no player is held back, and no player is forced into an environment where they cannot keep up and build confidence.

 

2018 B.E.S.T. Winter Program:

Each week players participate in skills mini-camps consisting of large group drilling, skill-based smaller group detailed drilling, and competitive games. Players are challenged according to skill level. Every session is a three-hour skills development session that includes a game for every player. Our skills stations continue while the games are played on the other courts, so players continue to develop before and after their games.
