DEVELOPING PLAYERS TO NOT ONLY COMPETE ON THE COURT, BUT ALSO IN LIFE!
About NEXT-LEVEL BASKETBALL PROGRAMS
The Next-Level Basketball Program (NLBP) consists of SCB’s Program Model: Developmental, Progressive, Advance, Performance, and Pro. The NLBP takes the player through progressive evolving techniques based on their mastery of basketball and movement skills as opposed to their age, grade in school, or physical attributes. This mastery of skills approach allows the player to develop physical literacy, learn basketball vocabulary, and acquire the movement confidence needed to optimize their basketball potential. NLBP’s curriculum incorporates ten stages of long-term athlete development. Although the curriculum removes age from the skill learning process, the long-term model provides age recommendations to demonstrate scientifically-proven learning capabilities. SCB incorporated these age recommendations in creating the curriculum to show how the stages translate to real learning environments. Through the long-term athlete development model, the NLBP addresses the topic of proper practice/ training-to-competition ratios.
