The flexibility of the schedule, the adaptation of programs and services offered, are priorities for the development and success of each player. The coaches of the academy have, as essential criterion, training of the player, the ability of the latter to move beyond his comfort zone to reach the next level.

All that constitutes a preparation to the requirements of high competition. Be able to withstand intensive physical preparation work to improve speed, strength, power, relaxation, velocity. The program developed by our coaches is aimed at young players who want to optimize their training and acquire all the skills to reach the best possible level. The program uses an innovative concept (Basketball Training Concept) where all the exercises are carried out with precision and intensity and where the use of pedagogical and technological tools is omnipresent.

The sense of detail and the knowledge of the game of our coaches leads each player towards excellence. They communicate their enthusiasm by actively participating in the training (the coach trains with the player) in this way the transfer of skills is optimized. They push players out of their comfort zone to acquire new skills and insist on repetition to reinforce those already acquired.
