As we all continue to deal with the current COVID-19 Pandemic, players may find they have plenty of extra time at home. Every player is highly encouraged to get a basketball in their hands daily. From shooting in the driveway to dribbling in the basement, it’s important they find ways to stay connected to the game.
1) YouTube – You will find countless appropriately challenging and fun drills on YouTube. Turn drills into mini-games and track improvement. Focusing as little as 10-15 minutes daily on a specific skill can pay great dividends over sustained time.
2) Home Court App – Home Court is an NBA backed app with AI technology that takes players through various guided workouts. From shot analyzing, to dribbling mechanics, and agility drills, this app is a great way to enhance player development. This app does have a monthly or annual cost, however, ALL FEATURES ARE UNLOCKED AND FREE THROUGH APRIL 30.
3) Home Workout PDF – We’ve put together a short basketball workout (with YouTube links included) that focuses on conditioning, improving ball handling, and getting plenty of game-like shots up if you have access to a hoop. You can never do too much ball handling and shooting.
