FOCUSED SKILLS TRAINING
ONE10 basketball camps are drill intensive and skill building. The structure of these camps gives athletes the opportunity for thousands of guided practice repetitions that will help them gain the skills they need to be an offensive threat with the ball in their hands. Some of the methods include:
Individual ball handling progression
Controlling the basketball
Working with manipulatives - tennis balls, cones, two balls, dribble goggles, etc.
Using angles to attack defenders
Getting and keeping defenders off balance
Using dribble skills at game speed
Finishing at the basket with both hands in a variety of ways
Form shooting techniques and methods to improve accuracy
Getting a quicker shot release
Taking and making game shots
ONE10 camps are all about pushing past limitations. Just when you think you have given it your all, dig a little deeper and GO ALL IN! Our coaches are trained to push each athlete to achieve the greatest amount of skill acquisition possible.
Giving 110% will be different for each athlete. Nevertheless, whether they are a beginner just starting their basketball journey, or an advanced player looking to take their game to new heights, ONE10 camps will teach your athlete how to push their minds and bodies to the next level.
Many high school and college coaches start at Level I basic drills every year. They just progress through the levels more quickly than a youth team. Players of all ages and skill levels can benefit from fundamental drills. We have a variety of methods to make fundamental skill work beneficial for even our most advanced players. Every dribbling drill can be done faster, lower, and with greater accuracy. Most great shooters use fundamental form shooting as a vital part of their warm-up routines. Until every shot is a swish every shooter can benefit from form shooting. It is very important to lay down a strong foundation of fundamental skills to build on as an athlete becomes stronger, faster and more skilled.
MUSCLE MEMORY is phrase often used to describe skill acquisition, which is the ability to reproduce a particular movement without conscious thought, acquired as a result of frequent repetition of that movement.
Experts agree it can take any where from 1,000 to 10,000 reps of skills like dribbling and shooting to be stored in the brain. If a movement is practiced enough the brain and nervous system prioritizes them as being important and strives to become as efficient and effective at performing them for future tasks.
This practice must be guided because practicing a skill the wrong way can build muscle memory and it can take 3 times the repetitions to break a poorly formed habit.
As athletes lay down a base of fundamental skills they have to be able to execute moves and skills that will work in games. It is critical step during skill acquisition for athletes to practice moves against live defenders in controlled game situations like 1 on 1, 2 on 2, 3 on 3 etc. This is where players will learn what moves work, how they can tweak moves against various opponents, and what skills they still need to master on in order to be a complete offensive threat.
"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."
"The importance of repetition until automaticity cannot be overstated. Repetition is the key to learning."
"Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect."

Dedication and Commitment. Learning something new is rarely easy. Breaking habits and forming new ones can be even harder. Pushing yourself passed your comfort zone and continuing when things are hard is a lesson that every successful athlete, business mogul, and parent must learn.
Hard Work Earns Results. Executing thousands of repetitions in a week of camp is no easy feat. Athletes will be tired and often sore. When athletes push themselves the improvements to their game will be substantial and they can take pride in what they have earned.
Confidence. We empower athletes to believe in the skills they work hard to earn. We push athletes to use those skills during game play. When a move works they build confidence. Eventually a player gains so much confidence in what they are doing iit pours over from the court into every facet of their life.
Sportsmanship. Part of being a true champion is knowing how to handle winning and losing with the same amount of grace. We encourage fierce competition with respect for all athletes and their hard work regardless of skill level.
