The New England Skills Academies are designed specifically for serious high school players hoping to take their game to the next level and prepare for the upcoming high school season. This is not your typical camp or clinic, but an intense group training session aimed at providing players with premier instruction and skill development in a rigorous working atmosphere to ensure maximum retention and preparation for the coming season. We don’t go half speed. We drill all aspects of offensive and defensive skill development at game speed so that players can then go back to their respective teams and apply what they’ve learned.
What Sets New England Skills Academies Apart? The Three C's!
The New England Skills Academy will be led by Adam Ginsburg, a 20 year division I coaching veteran who has had stops at Florida, Towson, Northeastern, and UMass where he has worked with the likes of Billy Donovan, Frank Martin, and Travis Ford among others. His teams advanced to the post-season in all 20 years of his coaching career and in 2014, he was Derek Kellogg's top assistant on the first UMass team to go to the NCAA tournament since 1998.
Coach Ginsburg will combine aspect of performance training (speed, balance, flexibility, explosiveness, functional strength, and overall athleticism) with skill development, offensive/defensive concepts, and spacial recognition to fully prepare players to be at their best for the beginning of the high school basketball season.
In order to ensure maximum retention and rapid progression, instruction and repetition will be coupled by competitive drill work in order to simulate game conditions. Because enrollment is limited to just 24 players there is a correlating high level of competition that forces each player to be at their best and makes our time in the gym as efficient as possible!
