Important Teams / Levels
Information

One of the things that truly separates the NBA Basketball School Program apart is our clear framework for player development. The players in our program each have a clear plan for success as they move through the curriculum. After attending a trial session, players are placed into their appropriate skill level to begin taking part in the curriculum. There are regular ‘skill assessments’ that provide players to move up to the next team and level of skill building. In addition to detailed weekly practices, each team and level also plays in weekly competitions on the weekends.

Rookie

Ages 8U-19U

This is a great level for those of you looking to have your child get started the right way in basketball. Practices included detailed instruction on the most basic fundamentals of the game – with a goal of building a solid foundation.

80% of practices are instruction based, 20% focused on game play. If your child is really into basketball and is ‘ready to learn’; this is a great level for them. Listening skills at a young age are very important at this level. Teams are gender based and will only be mixed if necessary. Practices are held for 2-3 hours per week, depending on age. The players are also invited to participate in our in-house league program on the weekends.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

The Technical Director of the program is Phil Galvin, considered one of the top skill development instructors in the world.

What truly separates our program from the rest is our unwavering commitment to player development.

Our comprehensive curriculum ensures that your child is working within a structure of development that is considered the finest in the world.

Our program also places a big emphasis on character development. Presentations on motivation, values, work ethic, and life skills are conducted at every practice session. Our program is far more than just about basketball…our goal is to truly be an ally for parents working to raise their kids the right way.

We also use Notebook Concept for learning. Players from Rookie Level up have a player notebook and take notes during all practices and games.

Games and match play are included into all teams (except Recreation) in each Term. Teams will play internal games and friendly games with other Dubai based basketball teams. Our recreation level teams play internal matches intermittently.

Evaluation reports and Skill Assessments are conducted each term. Meetings are available with the technical team for players and parents to discuss the skills assessment and evaluation.

Players on each of our teams starting at the 14U Level and up take part in our NBA School Basketball Strength Program.

We have a Student-Assistant Program set up for our players who want to earn leadership experience.
