GIRLS BASKETBALL

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

With teams at the post-graduate and varsity levels – and a unique developmental approach to each – the Virginia Beach Sports Academy girls basketball program provides the nation’s most effective training environment. Upperclassmen and post-graduates experience intensive, position-specific instruction that replicates how collegiate programs operate. Underclassmen student-athletes experience a training methodology focused more on development and foundation-setting for continued growth.

 

Local, regional and national competition encompasses the school year, as teams compete in both a fall and spring club-like setting. Initial fundamental and development basketball training leads into high-intensity play, while test-prep, strength of curriculum and academics correlate with college-recruitment goals and initiatives. College placement is a vital element for girls basketball, and the program develops insight to work with each individual to maximize potential both from an elite skills standpoint as well as the grade-point and test scores perspective.

 

The girls basketball academy places just as much emphasis on overall development as we do all other elements of the game. Courses dialed in on empowering female athletes allow for confidence, leadership and mental toughness to be addressed on a finite level. Strength training and conditioning along with nutrition and vision training accompany overall training to address any and all areas that will propel student-athletes to attain their aspirations. By mapping out a plan for each athlete to gain the most out of their courses and put them into play, our performance experts work with coaches to lay out detailed and effective offerings.
