Teams are made in the Fall and winter; and Players are made in the Spring and summer. Im not sure who invented that phrase but it is 100% true. The season is over and parents are happy to not be going to practices and tourneys on the weekend. Kids are happy to come home and rest after school and go outside in the evening with warm weather. But now with the great weather and time what are the kids and parents doing to improve their kid ? Chances are mom and dad tells the kid to go outside and shoot on the hoop. as most everyone has a hoop now days. Most of us even have the hoops that are adjustable , glass backboard or even cemented into the ground. But is it being used? or used productively ? Many times i ride my bike thru our neighborhood and I see many hoops in driveways. almost always they are never being used and then sometimes when I do see kids on them, the hoops are down to 8 foot and kids are dunking nerf balls.
so it brings me to my point, not enough kids working on skills and improving. As with any skill , if you dont work on it youl lose it. Muscle memory has to be embedded with anyone, but more with kids as their brains arent developed yet. Most kids are doing 2-4 sports so if they go from 1 sport to the other their skills arent set yet.
So this is where coach earl come in. Ive been training kids since 2004. Boys and girls from 1st grade all the way thru high school. Too busy as a parent? other siblings to run around or just hectic work schedule? then drop your kid off with me and let me improve them. Even training 1 time a week, or maybe 2 times a week can drastically improve your child.
