Advanced Basketball Training for 3rd–8th Graders

With TRU Basketball at the JCC

TRU Basketball and the JCC are joining forces to offer an unique approach to helping young athletes advance their basketball skills in a positive environment. This player centered program is designed to help young players improve their core individual and team skills. The program includes weekly training sessions and Sunday afternoon games in the Fall and Spring and skill advancement clinics in the Winter. This program is designed for intermediate and advanced players.

A Different Approach

Off season basketball programs have traditionally been centered around teams playing in tournaments with a lot of court time spent preparing the team for competition and less time spent developing individual player skills. TRU Basketball and the JCC are focused on individual player improvement that includes game playing to allow opportunities for players to apply their skills.

Skill Curriculum

TRU Basketball and the JCC coaches implement a specific skill curriculum designed to build a strong skill foundation in all aspects of the game – ball handling, shooting, playing without the ball, defense on and off the ball. Age appropriate skill progressions are used during the training sessions to challenge players to improve and grow as players.

Learning to Play; Not Learning Plays

Game playing is an important part of this Program, but unlike other club programs, it is not an end in itself. Instead of practicing for team success in a game, the emphasis is on being able to apply skills in games and within a team framework.

All Young Players Need to be Handle the Ball and Play Facing the Basket

Too often young players are pigeon holed into narrowly defined roles or positions that limit their ability to develop the wide range of skills that will often times be necessary to achieve ones goals. The philosophy of this Program is that all young players need to develop their ability to handle the ball and play facing the basket. This is not to say that everyone is a point guard or a three point shooter, but all young players should be given the tools to succeed.

Players Need Court Time

Quality court time can be hard to come by, and that is why this Program provides three days a week of training sessions. Families are busy and finding time for all of one’s activities is difficult. Players can come as often as they can, but no player is penalized for missing sessions.

A Schedule that is Flexible

Three grade divisions are offered and each division has multiple training sessions offered each week – come to one or more sessions each week for the same price. 6 games are played on Sunday afternoons.
