The Standard is Set; Here…
Back for our second week of training at the Sports Academy with Coaches Phil Handy, Clark, and the rest of the high-level coaching staff that conduct the 94FEETOFGAME basketball program.
In an effort to expose our son to some accelerated training opportunities to continue to build his skills, we scheduled a week with 94FEETOFGAME and then a week with a nationally branded camp. During Day 1 of the Nationally Branded Camp, we experienced an extremely high number of attendees and structure not lending itself to the focused high-level training we expected. It was evident that our son was not going to get the “coaching” needed at his current developmental stage.
The camp initially attended appears to be more of a “catchall exposure” experience, versus training at a high level for competitors. So after 5 hours of disappointment, we decided enough was enough. We called upon Coach Clark to see if we could get our son back for the current week’s session of 94FEETOFGAME. His words were; “Bring Him Back!” That was all we needed to hear. We drove straight to the hotel, packed everything and headed back to the Sports Academy.
94FEETOFGAME Program Staff Provided: 1) low athlete-to-coach ratio providing a more individualized assessment, 2) specific coaching ‘our’ son needed, 3) motivation and mindset training, 4) encouragement AND discipline.
Thanks to Coach Handy, Clark, the rest of the coaching crew, and Sports Academy for their outstanding high level of training provided to our son. We will be back!
