Play>Practice Basketball

The Play Practice Formula™ combines all of our best concepts, research, training methods, and thinking tools developed over 15 years into a holistic basketball education delivered to each player in 3 main phases:


Phase 1: Explore

We take a personalized approach to exploring the player’s current situation, as well as identifying their struggles, fears, and aspirations for the future. We then funnel all of that data into a prioritized training progression plan before beginning our footwork foundations that set the base for all other skills.


Phase 2: Develop

We accelerate player physical and mental capabilities by increasing shooting range, identifying situational scoring skills, and creating an order of operations to simplify the player’s decisions in real-time game play.


Phase 3: Compete

We integrate the individual skills learned in Phase 1 & 2 with a group competitive environment where each player learns how to multiply advantages, enhance their instincts and decision speed, and become the decisive competitor they aspire to be!
