SONIA CHASE BASKETBALL TRAINING

DEVELOPING PLAYERS TO NOT ONLY COMPETE ON THE COURT, BUT ALSO IN LIFE!

SCB has 4 Customized Training Programs within its “in-person” Traditional Training Basketball System (TTBS) to help make YOU an elite player and prepare you for next-level opportunities.

Next-Level Basketball Program (NLBP) – There are 5 levels to this program including Developmental, Progressive, Advanced, Performance, and Pro. The Developmental Program is geared toward player’s ages and abilities of 3 – 5 years old, the Progressive Program is geared toward player’s ages and abilities of 6 – 11 years old, the Advanced Program is geared toward player’s ages and abilities of 12 – 17 years old, the Performance Program is geared toward player’s ages and abilities of 18 – 21 years old, and the Pro Program is centered around player’s ages and abilities of 22 years and older. The levels enable players to be grouped by ability based on a variety of measurable skill sets. Players advance to the next level by mastering competencies within a defined skill set, completing a skill’s challenge, and receiving a passing evaluation from a SCB Certified Instructor. Each level has a color name and each player is given a color-coded wristband to wear to their weekly session. The curriculum is customized for the skill level of each class color. There are two levels in the Developmental rank (Yellow Level and Green Level), two levels in the Progressive rank (Orange Level and Blue Level), three levels in the Advanced rank (Purple Level, Red Level, White Level), two levels in the Performance rank (Black Level and Silver Level), and one level in the Pro-Status rank (Gold Level), all with progressive skill challenges involving footwork, conditioning, basketball IQ, and basketball development. Players must practice and ultimately complete these challenges before graduating to the next level.

Sports Performance Training focuses on speed, agility, and quickness better know as SAQ (Speed, Agility, and Quickness) Training. When training for basketball, a player must use a two-part approach including on-court basketball training and SAQ training to become an ELITE PLAYER.

 

S = Speed is defined as the maximum velocity a player can achieve and maintain; most humans can only maintain this maximum velocity for a short period of time and over a short distance. Speed can also be measured by the amount of time it takes a player to cover a set distance. Training to improve maximum speed requires an accurate focus on correct running mechanics, stride length, and stride frequency. The best sprinters spend very little time in contact with the ground, but the contact they do make is extremely efficient and powerful. By focusing on the mechanics of running helps to control this power to apply it efficiently and sparingly. Arm mechanics play a major role in efficient running form; good arm mechanics helps maintain leg speed and allow the player to switch to different speeds through a balanced running action between the upper and lower body.

 

A = Agility is the ability to change direction without loss of balance, strength, speed, or body control. There is a direct link between improved agility and the development of an individual’s timing, rhythm, and body movement. Training to improve agility ensures that a basketball player develops the best offensive and defensive skills possible with the greatest quickness, speed and control, wile exerting the least amount of wasted energy and movement. Good agility levels can also help prevent injuries and control the movement of the body and joints as efficiently as possible without causing a ‘jarring’ affect.

 

Q = Quickness is the act of acceleration that occurs in a fraction of a second and takes the body from a static position to motion. The muscles involved actually lengthen and then shorten instantaneously (an eccentric contraction followed by a concentric contraction). This process is known as the stretch shortening cycle and SAQ training principles concentrates on the neuromuscular system that is related to this process; it ensures the initial movement, whether lateral, linear or vertical, is automatic, explosive and accurate. Quickness training involves repeating the same explosive movement over a short period of time, such as fast footsteps and line drills. It moves the body quickly through the gears promoting an explosion of speed that can be integrated within game situations to give the player that essential explosion to the basket.
