Event Description

Virtual Skills: Forward/Center Development Series

20 Minute Workouts – 5 Days a Week – 4 Weeks Total

The Post-Player Development Series is designed for forwards and centers looking to improve their scoring, footwork, and ball skills. These workouts are designed to be done with a ball and a hoop (driveway, park, etc.)

With access to gyms and basketball camps remaining difficult for players, our coaching staff has created multiple follow-along workout series.  The Post-Player Development Series consists of 20-minute workouts designed to improve post players’ interior scoring, footwork, and ball skills. Bulldog Assistant Coach Carson Shanks will lead the pre-recorded workouts and will offer motivation and encouragement as participants follow along. The intended skill-level of these workouts is 5th-12th grade, but younger ages are welcome to register.

Workouts will be available via a private YouTube link and will follow this format:

  1. Player receives video instruction and demonstration for the skill/drill to be performed
  2. Player is told how many repetitions to perform on their own and then will reach a “pause” screen where they then will pause the video
  3. As the video is paused, players will complete the instructed skill/drill. After the repetitions are completed, the player will then return to their screen and press play to resume the video and receive the next set of instruction

On average, this cycle will consist of 30-45 seconds of video instruction from our coaches followed by 3-5 minutes of players performing the intended skill/drills while the video is paused. This format gives players direction and coaching while also relieving the stress of falling behind on the video or constantly checking the screen.
