ClubHoops skill development curriculum is a year-round program that consists of 60 minute classes structured to focus on 8 fundamental areas of the game: Ball Handling, Dribbling, Dribble Moves, Offensive Moves, Shooting, Passing, Post Moves, and Ball Screen Moves.  ClubHoops skill development program is specifically designed to prepare players for high school basketball.  Players are required to pass skills assessments in order to move forward to the next level of the curriculum.  


ClubHoops Skill Development Program is available to participants in our youth, premier, and elite club programs.  Our elite training program is available to players that participate on one of our Elite Teams or for players that play on their high school teams.  We expect that all players in our elite program have developed and mastered the ClubHoops Skill Development Curriculum prior to trying out for the elite program.



Support:​ ​​Parental​ ​support​ ​and​ ​involvement​ ​is​ ​essential​ ​to​ ​team​ ​success.​ ​Parents​ ​must​ ​see​ ​to​ ​it that​ ​the​ ​player​ ​attend​ ​all​ ​club​ ​and​ ​team​ ​functions​ ​(practices,​ ​meetings,​ ​games,​ ​special​ ​events). We​ ​understand​ ​there​ ​will​ ​be​ ​times​ ​when​ ​scheduling​ ​conflicts​ ​cannot​ ​be​ ​avoided.​ ​When​ ​a​ ​player​ ​or parent​ ​has​ ​an​ ​unavoidable​ ​conflict,​ ​ClubHoops ​​expects​ ​timely​ ​communication​ ​with​ ​the​ ​coach. 


Sideline​ ​Coaching:​ ​​We​ ​will​ ​not​ ​allow​ ​any​ ​coaching​ ​by​ ​parents​ ​on​ ​the​ ​sideline.​ ​Parents​ ​are​ ​asked to​ ​NOT​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​negative​ ​conversations​ ​with​ ​referees​ ​or​ ​parents​ ​of​ ​the​ ​opposing​ ​team.​ ​Any parent​ ​who​ ​engages​ ​in​ ​an​ ​extensive​ ​verbal​ ​dispute​ ​or​ ​argument​ ​with​ ​any​ ​referee​ ​or​ ​opposing team’s​ ​parents​ ​will​ ​be​ ​asked​ ​to​ ​immediately​ ​leave​ ​the​ ​premises.​ ​Vocal​ ​support​ ​and​ ​positive encouragement​ ​are​ ​welcome​ ​and​ ​encouraged. 


Instruction:​ ​​Players​ ​will​ ​only​ ​receive​ ​one​ ​set​ ​of​ ​instructions​ ​before,​ ​during,​ ​and​ ​after​ ​practices​ ​or games.​ ​For​ ​this​ ​reason,​ ​ClubHoops​ ​insists​ ​the​ ​team’s​ ​head​ ​and​ ​or​ ​assistant​ ​coach​ ​be​ ​the​ ​only​ ​voice​ ​at all​ ​games​ ​and​ ​practices.​ ​No​ ​one​ ​other​ ​than​ ​the​ ​coaches​ ​listed​ ​on​ ​the​ ​official​ ​roster​ ​may​ ​sit​ ​on​ ​or near​ ​the​ ​team​ ​bench​ ​before​ ​and​ ​during​ ​games​ ​at​ ​any​ ​times,​ ​including​ ​parents​ ​(no​ ​exceptions). 


Communication:​ ​​We​ ​encourage​ ​parents,​ ​when​ ​appropriate,​ ​to​ ​communicate​ ​or​ ​ask​ ​questions about​ ​their​ ​child’s​ ​development.​ ​We​ ​ask​ ​parents​ ​to​ ​adhere​ ​to​ ​the​ ​“24-hour​ ​wait​ ​rule”​ ​when addressing​ ​a​ ​coach​ ​regarding​ ​a​ ​concern​ ​or​ ​issue​ ​after​ ​a​ ​practice​ ​or​ ​a​ ​tournament​ ​game.​ ​Wesuggest​ ​parents​ ​encourage​ ​their​ ​child​ ​to​ ​speak​ ​up​ ​and​ ​communicate​ ​for​ ​themselves​ ​with​ ​their head​ ​coach​ ​whenever​ ​possible.
