Athleticism is more than leaping over a hurdle and drop-kicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Be a good sport with this Groupon.

Private and group lessons pair up boys and girls of all ages with coaches who have experience both playing top-tier basketball and coaching young players. The lessons target shooting, ball handling, one-on-one moves, position-specific drills, and other fundamentals vital for individual player development. Lessons are scheduled as needed and based on availability.
Basketball Stars of NY
During water breaks when young ballers are relacing their high-tops on the edges of the gym, the coaching staff at Basketball Stars of NY might take a break to goof around on the court; but, for them—former NCAA Division I athletes who’ve spent time in professional leagues throughout the world—goofing around translates to throwing down a vicious tomahawk dunk, effortlessly splashing three-balls through the rim from behind the arc or subtly raising the rims during practice so players think that they’re shrinking. No matter the act, these feats typically snag boys’ and girls’ attention during their private lessons, camps, or weekend programs or clinics.
Progamming director and coach David Brown says the coaches’ athletic prowess and physicality helps players focus, drawing a clear path between the hard work of practice drills to the payoff of a power dunk. In small groups split by age, skill, and position, coaches instill the value of fundamentals such as ball handling and rebounding. They also break the bad habits of youth, steering players away from the tendency to shoot nothing but threes, dribble with their head down, and fade away on simple 10-foot jumpers.
