Basketball skills come in handy off the court, whether tossing wadded-up paper into a wastebasket or swatting an invasive species of bird out of a tree. See some buzzard beaters with this Groupon.
$19 for Five Basketball Training Sessions ($50 Value)
Designed for youth ballers looking to make their school teams, each 60-minute session includes an intense medley of exercises and basketball-related drills.
Dream Large Basketball
Some of the drills practiced at Dream Large Basketball are what most fans would classify as fouls. There’s the one where players crash into padded mats while trying to maintain their dribble. If that isn’t difficult enough, there’s another drill that demands players to dribble two balls simultaneously while being pushed from the front and pulled from behind. Coach Phil Ramirez, the man behind these challenging drills, believes that young ballers will excel during games if they’re physically tested during practice. That means a mix of basketball training and fatiguing exercises, which include cone drills, wall sits, heavy rope routines, and memorizing Dr. James Naismith’s thesis paper. Through hard work and plenty of sweat, the training facility hopes to get youth ballers closer to earning a spot on their middle school, high school, or college teams.
