MOTION 360 - Player Development & Feedback System

  • “Motion 360” represents the key fundamental requirements to improve a player’s performance.
  • We focus on incremental improvement as every child develops different both physically and mentally.
  • Our end goal is to have a player fully skilled in basketball fundamentals and positioned for success upon entering High School.
  • Team practice establishes the foundation of how to work effectively as a team member, the player’s role on the team, how to help your teammates succeed, and how to compete.
  • Coach evaluations and goal setting are critical to establish player baselines for improvements. So often coaches scream at kids to do more and give more effort, but provide little direction as to how to improve.
  • Our coaches typically have an extensive basketball background, with most playing at the college level.
  • Our coaches are trained in proper communication and required to keep families informed with schedules and tournament information.
  • All coaches provide player feedback with detailed goals and improvement objectives.
