IMPROVEMENTS FOR 2022 SEASON
We are making 5 major improvements to our teams for the 2022 Club Team season, including:
#1 More efficient player development & more competitive teams!
Last year, due to COVID safety, we chose not to have returning players tryout as they did in all years past, but in 2022, ALL players will once again be required to tryout. This will allow PSB to place players with the optimal skill level of team for each player which ultimately produces more efficient player development and more competitive teams!
#2 Upgraded team curriculum!
Nationwide, all PSB coaches will be using the MOJO app, which will deliver PSB’s updated standardized team curriculum that is optimized for age and skill level. The MOJO app empowers young athletes everywhere and makes sports more fun for everyone – one kid, one coach, one family, one team at a time.
#3 HonestGame for HS players! Over the past couple of years, our high school players have gotten access to SportsRecruits with their team memberships. This year, high school players will not only get SportsRecruits but also HonestGame, a platform that makes navigating NCAA academic eligibility to college sports simple by empowering student-athletes with a plan that provides guidance on the classes, grades, and test scores they need to meet NCAA academic eligibility status.
#4 Additional optional opportunities for improvement! We often get requests for extra work and more coaching in certain areas, so this year we have partnered with leading experts to offer PSB players exclusive discounts for additional optional opportunities, including:
- Personal Coaching/Recruiting Advisement for HS Players from Coach Paul Biancardi, a 20+ year college coach and currently ESPN’s National Director of Boy’s High School Basketball.
- Nutrition Coaching from Fueling U’s Rachel Pfister, a registered dietician who previously worked in the sports and football departments at LSU, Alabama, and Tennessee.
- Mental Performance Coaching from Well Performance, a company founded by Stu Singer who has worked as the sports psychology and performance consultant for the NBA’s Washington Wizards, the WNBA’s 2019 World Champion Washington Mystics, University of Maryland Women’s Basketball team, Rice University Basketball, and the Connecticut Sun among others.
- Virtual Skills Training from select PSB Trainers so that players don’t even have to leave their house to be trained by some of the top trainers in the US.
- London Basketball & Cultural Tour in partnership with BTM Basketball, a company that specializes in international basketball tours, will offer PSB players high-level games against UK opposition, team practice sessions, and cultural & leisure activities.
#5 Quicker & Better Uniform & Gear Process! We have invested in a new uniform and gear process that will A) make the shipping time much quicker and B) make the ordering process better. Uniforms & gear will arrive within 1-2 weeks from time of order placement. Players will also be able to choose from a list of available jersey numbers.
WHAT SEPARATES PSB FROM OTHER CLUBS?
AAU Basketball is often disorganized, focused solely on winning, and generally, frustrating, but at Pro Skills Basketball, our Club Teams provide a more professionalbasketball experience for parents, players and coaches – one focused on organized communication, fun, mutual respect, and personal growth – on and off the court.
Our Club Teams are instructed by trained & certified coaches who, through our comprehensive player development program and F.O.C.U.S. core values, prepare players for the next level of their basketball careers while also teaching them life lessons that will lead to success off the court as well. Simply put, we teach kids Skills for Basketball. Life. Success.
Let’s take a deeper look …
#1 Comprehensive Development:
We offer all of our players Team Games and Practices throughout the season. All PSB players have optional Camps and Clinics throughout the year that they can attend. We provide optional skill workouts from our PSB coaches on select dates.
For our players who are receiving interest from colleges, we provide college recruiting guidance along their journey. Lastly, we teach all of our players our F.O.C.U.S. Life Lessons.
#2 Trained & Certified Coaches:
All of our PSB coaches have prior experience in basketball and are knowledgeable on the X’s and O’s of the game. Our coaches are all background checked and are First Aid & Child Safety Trained. Our organization personally trains and certifies each one of our coaches before they coach a team. Lastly, each one of our coaches is USA Basketball Licensed.
#3 Organized Parent Communication:
We offer full-time support staff that is available for our parents to reach out to with any questions or concerns. Our support staff answers all emails and phone calls within our work hours, if a call or email comes in after work hours it will be responded to first thing the next workday.
We have organized parent conferences to set all expectations for our parents on the front end. We provide a detailed team handbook to all of our team’s parents.
Lastly, we provide helpful tech tools and platforms to help aid our parents throughout the season.
