Private training can be geared toward players who need more individualized attention, have trouble staying on task in group classes, or have specific goals to achieve. Private training allows for instructors to personalize goals and objectives specific to the player. Lessons are skill-based, focusing on developing individual skill sets (dribbling, shooting, passing, strategy, and more), starting where the player currently is, and helping to sharpen and develop their skill set to maximize ability on the basketball court. Private training does not follow class sessions; however, most maintain a weekly standing time with their instructor. Lessons will be held in the gym.
