The traveling coaches of Rise Up Basketball know that many virtues of great players are invisible—their work ethic, for example, or ability to cooperate with team members. So, when practicing with their clients, they focus on physical, mental, and social skills. Drills on shooting and passing merge with teamwork exercises and game-like scenarios that demand quick thinking, all of which occur at a local park or gym of the player's choosing. Whether they're guiding a single person, a group, or an active team, the instructors strive to build overall athleticism, no matter the student's age or initial skill level.
