BREAKAWAY BASKETBALL PHILOSOPHY

"When You Improve A Little Each Day Eventually Big Things Occur" 

I 100% believe this statement because its exactly what happened to me. You must make an investment in yourself everyday. Just a little extra, and all those little extras add up, until finally the BIG BOOM! I always call it the Big Boom, the moment where you look back and realize how far you came. The moment where all the hard work, discipline, commitment, and sacrifice makes sense. In my opinion most kids never stay around long enough to see their BIG BOOM. Because before anyone has a Big Boom they must first face and conquer much adversity. And during those tough times unfortunately many people quit or stop working as hard because they believe this hard work stuff does not really work. They want the results without going through the entire process. Unfortunately in every process there will be failure and disappointment.

MARCH ELITE CLINICS

March Elite will be the only time where students can train with us in a small group setting. We pride ourselves in always having a 6:1 ratio of player to coach. However this month only we will have 15 players and 3 coaches per class. These workouts are offered for 3rd-8th grade. These are for the player who is ready to take their mental and physical game to another level. If you are new to basketball or to Breakaway I do not recommend this class. Please do not signup if your child does not LOVE working! Wait till April when we can teach them how to work. 

We will treat the middle school players like high school players. I recommend that the parents stay and watch their child through these workouts if possible. I can guarantee that you will be amazed on what your child accomplishes and overcomes during this class. The hour class will be structured the following way for all 3rd-8th grade clinics in March.

  • 15 minutes- Single and 2 Ball Heavy Ballhandling Work
  • 15 minutes- Live Heavy Ball Finishes (5 different finishes from different angles)
  • 30 minutes- Game Situation Shooting (Off the catch, Off the dribble, Motion reads, Out of Jab, Out of a Shot Fake)
