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

Each week every player participates in a 3 hour long mini-camp consisting of large group drilling, skill-based smaller group detailed drilling, and competitive games. Players are challenged according to their skill level. Our skills stations continue while games are being played on the other courts, so all players continue to develop before and after their games. We are generally split into three skill levels that follow the guidelines below.

 

Western Conference || B.E.S.T. Introductory Division:

  • Learn fundamental movement skills & build overall motor skills, introduce team principles & concepts, play a 3-on-3 schedule plus group skill competitions

  • B.E.S.T. recommends participating 1X-2X per week in basketball & participate daily in other sports activities, and minimal 5-on-5 competition until fundamentals are further developed

  • All divisions participate in skills stations for 2 of the 3 hours and play games for 1 of the 3 hours they are at a B.E.S.T. session

  • Typically 3rd-4th grade athletes, but also less experienced older players

 

Central Conference || B.E.S.T. Foundational Division:

  • Learn fundamental & basic basketball-specific skills, spending ~2/3 of time on individual fundamental training and ~1/3 of time on actual game competition.

  • Learn all position concepts, play 5-on-5 games, and play group skills & smaller team games (1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3, skill games)

  • All divisions participate in skills stations for 2 of the 3 hours and play games for 1 of the 3 hours they are at a B.E.S.T. session

  • Typically experienced 5th-6th grade basketball players, but also very experienced younger players and less experienced older players

 

Eastern Conference || B.E.S.T. Advanced Foundational Division:

  • Further develop & consolidate overall basketball skills and knowledge

  • Learn more targeted position concepts, play 5-on-5 games, and play group skills & smaller team games (1-on-1, 2-on-2, 3-on-3, skill games)

  • All divisions participate in skills stations for 2 of the 3 hours and play games for 1 of the 3 hours they are at a B.E.S.T. session

  • Typically experienced 7th-11th grade players, but also very experienced younger players

 

 


 

B.E.S.T. Basketball Chicago's Mission:

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, skill station, and competition is intended to respect your child's ability to be their very best and challenge them to grow. Our players play games during all sessions, but the mission of our program is basketball skills development. We get in the gym for three hours and work on improving basketball skills, then transition the skills into game settings. 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. All players, all the way up to the most skilled and experienced professional, need to get their work in. We help them do that at Basketball Elite Skills Training. 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 - no player is held back, and no player trains in an environment where they cannot keep up and build their confidence.
