Sessions Underway - Limited Spots Remaining!
The winter skill sessions are designed to gear up for your outdoor season. The staff will be stressing individual offensive play such as shooting, finishing and close quarters stick protection and will end with 2 man plays, pick and rolls etc. The individual defensive techniques will provide a solid foundation of footwork, body position, when/where and how to check and how to defend the pick game. We will implement training techniques that will help players create better movement on and off the ball with end to end defense to offense transition.
Ryan Drenner's Scoring and Skills sessiona are designed to help you develop individually and gear up for your outdoor season. Ryan and his staff will be stressing individual offensive play such as shooting , finishing and close quarters stick protection while learning how to create separation to get your hands fess and either feed or score !!!.
