Games are important for players development. We believe players benefit from skill development training during our practices. We are focused on teaching and training. We are focused on helping our players understand what skills they need to improve and help them to get better.
MBA was created to train individuals and groups. We took our skill development training program and built teams around it. Our comprehensive development program eliminates the needs for our players to pay extra for private or group training. We provide skills training to all our players during each team practice and all the extra free optional practices we offer.
Players who want to get their shot fixed, improve on ball handling, finish at the rim with contact or just get better MBA is the right team program.
MBA Team Players typically save $350 on average each season. Our players don't need to hire expensive trainers or pay for additional training because we provide free optional training sessions to all our team players. Each season we offer all the benefits of hiring outside or inhouse training and skill development at no extra cost.
We don't hire outside trainers to run practices or training sessions which increases your cost. We don't suggest/push additional private or group training sessions at additional costs. MBA avoids all of that by hiring the best coaches and trainers to coach our teams and including additional free training sessions to all our team players. Most of our talented coaching staff is comprised of MCPS teachers and MCPS high school basketball staff.
In addition to practicing three hours a week all players will be offered additional free training and skill development sessions. These sessions are used by players who want extra training. Players who miss practice can use these trainings as a makeup. Our program is based on player development so we eliminate the need for expensive training sessions and workouts from our staff or outside trainers. These extra sessions are not mandatory they are extra.
Our teaching and training based team program is the best solution for players looking to earn more time playing with their middle and high school teams. We know what HS coaches expect from their players because Erick Graves and Steve Watson are high school coaches.
