Topics Covered

At Shehady Basketball, we cover just about every aspect of the game. We put a heavy importance of only working on skills/concepts that are applicable in a game. Through extensive detail & breakdown, we have helped many undersized guards perform at a high level! We are not geared strictly towards point guards however.. players will learn how to break down their movement taking out all excess motion to make them as explosive as possible, players will learn how to play bigger than their size by creating angles with their handle & their foot work. We will teach players a variety of set-up that allow them to add a variety of moves and reads. Once players learn these set-ups, they will learn intricate details that allow them to increase their ball control/read time in order to slow the game down and put themselves in position to take what the defense is giving them & read defensive coverage. We teach a variety of different footwork techniques off the bounce, on finishes, and to create space/angles in the paint. While finishing, we will show players how to create as much length as possible so they can finish against longer, taller, players. Players will learn how to use their body by being more crafty & having poise in the paint to create passing windows and finishing opportunities. We will teach guards how to manipulate the defense by intentionally shifting their body weight to sell a direction. This is after they learn how to position their bodies with proper positioning that will help them be more explosive & efficient with the dribble, shot, pass, and lateral movement. We teach game shooting and practice just about every shot & situation a player may see in a game, whether it's coming off a down screen, DHO (dribble hand off), coming off ball screens, or creating shots  out of triple threat, we cover it all! At Shehady Basketball, we ensure our players understand how to put their teammates in positions for success, we will go over understanding how to create passing angles vs. length, how to feed the post, how to lead players in transition, wing entry, how to create passing windows off drive/kick etc. We feel players often neglect defense in their workouts and their footwork is often atrocious when it comes game time, even when players have decent footwork, they can not guard players faster than them. We go through a variety of different defensive drills that'll ensure proper footwork & help players play big & stay in front of quicker guards. Guards will learn how to set their defender up for the ball screen, how to crawl off screens & take what the defense is giving them by slowing down & making reads. Players will learn how to score as well as pass out of just about every ball screen imaginable (horn, flat, drag, etc.) We are about as well rounded as it gets & through teaching players to not only work harder but smarter, our guards are able to play at the next level!
