Basketball and Learning Skills

Hello Everyone!

With basketball season gearing up we are looking forward to seeing the athletes that trained at AGSP show off their improved speed, strength and power. Some of our athletes also worked on their specific basketball skills at The Cleveland Basketball School. This combination of speed and strength training, along with specific skill training, is exactly the type of training Division One Athletes do (hence why university's have separate strength coaches from the sport coaches)
Coach Robbie, Coach Amanda and Coach Paul work together to make athletes better!

Working on skills in the off-season is one of the best ways to truly become a better athlete. I like to remind our athletes, "If you are playing more games with the same skills you've always had, you are not going to magically become better. You have to learn new skills and then apply them."

Training at AGSP and at programs like The Cleveland Basketball School teaches you how to improve your skills. To see what skills you will learn at CBS check out their new promo video!


Keep Training! (and good luck AGSP basketball athletes!)
