GBA offers a full year program with a complete focus on player development. Our goal is to maximize player's potential with high intensity workouts focused on four areas of the game which are ball skills, strength, speed and basketball IQ. To accomplish significant improvement our players go through two or three training sessions per day.
To make a basketball player more effective on the court, GBA improves his shooting, dribbling and passing skills. Through variety of drills coached by skill enhancment specialist we improve our players in all of these fundamentals. But in GBA training is not only about repetition. We analyze and observe our players to identify their deficiencies which we then correct through fundamental breakdown. Only after proper technique is established repetition and increased intensity becomes relevant.
Strength training is another component in which GBA uses individual approach. Our players, old enoug to lift weights, are tested and after they obtain an individual strength training plan. Upon fulfillment of this plan the players are tested again to measure the improvements in their strength and power. This individual approach is effective because players go through weight lifting workouts that are very demanding and safe at the same time.
Agility, footwork and speed improvements are incrumental part of GBA's training program. Using jumping and resistance equipment we improve players lateral movement, explosivenes, and jumping ability in a short period of time.
Teaching basketball instincs is very challenging. This is why at GBA we spent lot of time working with players on their understanding of the game. Explanations of concepts from 1 on 1 defensive and ofensive techniques to complex 5 on 5 defensive and ofensive systems is an important element to allof ours team practices.
In this full year program intensity never stops. High on adrenaline, we work around the clock preparing and working with our players to give them the physical and mental preparation they need for high level basketball.
Your size should never determine your position but your predisposition to play it at pro level.
