building better basketball athletes
Strags Performance Training LLC is a hybrid of basketball skills and movement training. We offer private and group sessions to grade-school aged athletes and beyond to provide the athletic skills necessary to excel at the game of basketball from a strength and conditioning perspective.
If your athlete needs help with:
Getting open on offense
Starting, stopping, and changing direction quickly
Upper body and lower body strength for midrange and 3pt shots
Proper jumping and landing technique
Strags Performance Training is the place for your athlete to gain the athletic skills necessary to excel at the game of basketball.
Learn how to:
Cut, move, and accelerate for offensive opportunities including separating from the pack for open layups.
Gain the strength necessary to shoot from farther distances.
Shuffle, change direction and use footwork to become an elite defender.
Each segment of learning is broken down into 3 parts. First, the fundamental skill of movement is taught to the athletes. They understand what moves, what stays stable and what the movement should feel like. Next, the movement is tested in a controlled environment. This is what is commonly knowing as drilling the movement. Finally, the movement is connected to sport through the ‘‘basketball application.” The athletes then understand and make the connection between the movement and how it makes them better and more efficient basketball athletes by implementing the movement in a basketball drill or small-sided game.
The model gives athletes the foundation of movement they need in order to improve athleticism, balance, flexibility, core strength, and reaction time by teaching 9 foundational movements of sport and then showing how they correlate within the game of basketball.
