Youth & Teen Classes - Basketball Skills Academy (Ages 9-14, Intermediate)

Valour Nation introduces young athletes to basketball skills and fundamentals that are suited to their experience level. The intermediate course is for students with some basketball experience and has obtained a foundational basketball skill set to include the ability to dribble and maintain control of the ball while running, ability to execute proper footwork on lay ups, understanding basic passing principles and proper shooting form. Prior knowledge of the basic rules of basketball (ex: traveling, double dribble, etc.) is also recommended. Intermediate students can expect to learn fundamentals such as developing advanced change of direction moves, offensive attack moves and learn different ways to create separation from defenders. Students will learn how to recognize passing windows and will practice different finishes around the basket to include inside and outside hand finishes, extended lay ups and more. In addition, the intermediate course will introduce small-sided games to teach proper offensive spacing, reading screens, two-on-one scenarios and more. Athletes should bring a basketball and personal water bottle to each class.
