-           Stabilization modalities

-           Speed Training (acceleration, agility, change of direction)

-           Strength and Power Development

·          Corrective Exercise strategies to improve movement deficiencies or mechanics.

·          Injury prevention methods to prepare the body for the demands of the upcoming season.

·          Learn the proper mechanics behind many critical basketball specific movement patterns such as the jab step, shot fakes, first step, drop step, shuffling, crossover (defense), angle pedal (defense), close out/retreat (defense) and pivoting (creating space).

·          Build a strong base and prevent against dreaded ankle sprains with Coach Johnson’s multi-dimensional ankle protocol.  With the time spent in ankle braces and basketball shoes, the ankle looses strength and mobility.  This protocol will prevent against ankle sprains, poor mobility, poor balance and plantar fasciitis.
