WHAT WILL A SPARTAN DO DURING TRAINING?
CONGRATULATIONS, YOUR CHILD HAS BECOME A SPARTAN WARRIOR!
During training block a Spartan Warrior will learn about the importance of teamwork as well as developing their own confidence. 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 and promoted in games during the last 25-30 minutes of each session.
We believe putting these new learnt skills into effect in game situations are 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 25 minutes of game time every session where all players touch the ball and all players contribute.
Our Spartans work together as a team, and no one gets 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 are transferable and will help your Spartan improve in other sports such as football, rugby and netball.
