Skilled players are players who can play in any basketball system or style of play. The key ingredient is fundamentals .
Eye hand coordination, proper posture, balance, stance, footwork, ball handling, shooting mechanics, muscle memory, etc. At every level of play the basics remain the same and players who may be from beginners to professionals never lose focus of this.
We develop skills through developing good habits; we develop good habits by developing the right mindset; we develop the right mindset by developing the right beliefs – which is the way we develop basketball players.

Coach Tatum provided individualized training plans for our small group that increased player confidence and skills. He was able to critique and find ways for players to improve their ball handling, shooting, and finishing in just a few weeks. The players in the small group trainings have begun using those skills in fall league games and practices.
