The Basketball Academy will be a 6 week skills and drills program for girls and boys ages 7 to 14. Our Basketball Academy will be age and skill appropriate. This means that players will be segregated by age and skill level. Each age group will focus on ball handling, footwork, and the fundamentals of shooting. The skill work will be followed by organized team play, which will focus on team spacing, team offensive and defensive concepts. We will use 8ft rims for the 1 st and 2 nd graders.
The Basketball Academy will be run by Coach Derek Wright. Coach Wright has over 25 years of basketball experience of which 22 of those years were spent coaching high school basketball at both Council Rock North and South. Additionally, Coach Wright runs the “Wright Camp” which is one of the most popular summer basketball camps in our area. See the CBAA home page for more details on Coach Wright’s basketball camps.
