Individual And Group Lessons

Sweat Equity Group with Coach Gervat

We will be running 1 hour of training once per week for one rising 7/8th grade group, and one Rising 9/High school group. This is FREE TRAINING. In this group, we’ll be working on the intricacies of the game from inside finishing to 1on1 tricks of the trade on both sides of the ball to proper angles on dodges and exact shooting mechanics etc. These will be heavily detailed drills working on exact fundamentals and advanced skills. In order to be a part of this group, you have to pass a timed wall ball test.

This is not meant for everyone. This is meant for those who put in the work on the wall to improve themselves. We’re rewarding those players who put in the time and effort to heighten their game.

We will be doing testing every 3 weeks. If you pass, you are part of the weekly group. If you do not, you have to wait 3 weeks to become part of the group.

HS time to Qualify: 6Min 27 Seconds
Middle School Time to Beat: 6 Min 37 Seconds


Testing Time Rising 7th and 8th 5:30
