WHAT WILL A SPARTAN DO DURING TRAINING?
During training block a Spartan Warrior will learn about the importance of teamwork as well as developing their own confidence and skill. Coaches will spend time developing and improving a Spartan's fundamentals such as ball handling with one or two basketballs at a time. Coaches will help develop dribbling technique, lay-ups, shooting technique, defending on and off the ball, and reading the defence. This will then be encouraged to be applied in games towards the end of each session.
We believe putting any newly learnt skills into effect in a game situation is crucial. Five minutes to play games at the end of a training session is not enough for any player. At Spartans Basketball Academy we endeavour to have adequate game time during every session where all players get their hands on the ball and all players contribute.
Our Spartans work together as a team, with no one getting left behind! We will give individuals and teams advice throughout drills and games to help them become an ultimate warrior on the sports battlefield. All Spartans will also develop their fitness when training at our Academy. Many of the skills learnt with us are highly transferable and will help your Spartan improve in other sports such as football, rugby and netball.
“Spartans has been the making of our older son. At a time when he wasn't being stretched or shown good values at school, we discovered Spartans Academy. WHAT AN IMPACT! Wayne and his team have a quiet authority that comes with DEEP EXPERTISE and BROAD EXPERIENCE.” JO, SPARTANS PARENT
