The NBA Basketball School in Dubai held 4 beach workouts in August at Secret Beach in Dubai. Held on Sundays from 8-9am, 75 NBA School players took part in these outstanding sessions. Designed specifically for basketball, the workouts consistently of drills to encourage strength, speed, and agility. ‘The sand presents a fantastic environment for the kids to train on,’ commented technical director Phil Galvin, ‘the soft surface is easy on the knees and simultaneously strengthens the ligaments, joints, and core.’
‘Best workouts I’ve ever had,’ commented 19U team member Jared Arcello, ‘this is tough.’ Each of the NBA School coaches joined the players for the sessions, which made for a very enthusiastic environment. ‘I love getting to see the kids show up on a day where normally don’t have practice and get better, stronger,’ commented coach Katie Batlin, ‘out here, we are going to find out how bad someone really wants it.’
The NBA School is plans to host additional beach workouts periodically throughout the year. Sesssions are complimentary for all NBA School members.
