Players Will Experience Details That Lead to Game Success Like Never Before!
We present all of our content in 3 models
Players Will Hear It - Each skills concept will be broken down into minute detail & footwork will be taught in progressions, ensuring players create good habits, understand how to rep it out on their own, & how it applies to the game! Everything Mark teaches is game applicable & he will break it down to where it's easy for players/coaches to understand.
Players Will See It- Mark will demonstrate every drill & show every drills "game piece" on how it applies to game. This is crucial for learners who are more visual, players must be able to see how to properly complete each drill. This will help players implement concepts faster in games & will help them understand the necessary details more extensively.
Players Will DO IT- Once Mark demonstrates & explains each drill/concept into detail, the players will rep it out during camp. Once players go through the drill/concept, Mark gets around to every single camper & ensures they are doing the skill set properly & helps players truly understand how each concept is used in the game!
