Triple Threat 101
TRIPLE THREAT 101 was founded on the principle that young children learn best by seeing and demonstration, and when it comes to sports the same is true! We pride ourselves on providing a safe and comfortable environment that allows children to flourish fundamentally, physically, and socially. Our amazing coaches consistently demonstrate kindness, patience, and acceptance during each and every camp or class. Our program will not solely focus on basketball skill development. We will help young athletes improve their athletic abilities, like footwork and agility, and life skills that are essential in more than just sports. They will learn good sportsmanship, teamwork, diligence, and the power of positive thinking.We strive to provide a quality basketball program for growing athletes. Our program will focus on teaching children fundamentals first, also known as the Triple Threat, which are dribbling, passing and shooting. The staff is trained to engage young athletes and communicate with them on their level. As parents ourselves we have created the kind of program that we want for our own young children.
