Players attending our Clinics and League will receive fundamental, skills-based training through fun and innovative drills and games. Each player’s progress will be quantified so they can continue their improvement even after the session has ended. Clinics are taught by the experienced staff of Basketball Elite Skills Training, Inc. We tailor our instruction methods to players of all skill levels, from complete beginners to those preparing to compete at the high school level. Open to players from all schools.

Skills Training - first 4 weeks January 3, 17, 24 and 31
Each Saturday for these first 4 weeks is a mini-camp comprised of 6-8 skills stations, run in a format like we do for NBA Cares, with small groups rotating from basket to basket (8 hoops on 4 NBA-size courts). The players are split into small groups based on skills, and each coach at each basket runs drills. Each station runs for 12-20 minutes, then groups rotate to the next station with a new coach. During these 4 weeks we assess each player and start to place them into their league game divisions based on skill level.
League Games and Skills Training - last 8 weeks February 7, 14, 21, 28, March 7, 14, 21, 28
During these next 8 weeks we have league games occurring on 3 courts, with the 4th court dedicated to 2 or 3 skills stations ongoing while the games are being played on the other three courts. All players in the gym are expected to participate in these skills development stations if they are not playing in a game. The players who get the most out of our programs are the ones who commit to being in the gym from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m., regardless of what time their game is. Our focus is skills development, and this occurs primarily in the skills stations. B.E.S.T. coaches rotate between coaching games and skills stations for the full three hours.
