Rijo Athletics—founded by former Mets player and current St. Louis Cardinals scout Jose Rijo-Berger—helps baseball and softball players and coaches polish up their craft with a variety of skill drills, camps, and hands-on practice sessions. Pitchers perfect not only their form and speed, but also their techniques for reducing injury risk, and batters develop their own unique swing pattern, whether they're a power hitter, contact hitter, or telekinetic hitter. Players perform their feats of athleticism in one of six indoor batting tunnels and on pitching mounds.
Rijo's athletic complex, which spans eight acres and includes a 9,000-square-foot indoor facility and an all-weather turf field, also hosts group clinics for other sports, including soccer, football, golf, and swimming. Its full weight room is designed for sport-specific training.
Legacy Builders Basketball hosts a three-day skills development camp at Canyon Park Junior High. There, players prepping for the coming season can fine-tune their games with oversight, tips, and guidance from an experienced coach and player. Camps focus on perfecting footwork, improving speed and agility, and developing court vision. Legacy Builders also offers one-on-one training sessions, during which players can receive individualized help in improving their game.
An NHL regulation-size ice rink, four indoor and six outdoor tennis courts, and five racquetball courts. Eight softball diamonds, a colossal outdoor skateboarding park, and outdoor basketball courts. A playground and picnic area, walking trails, and Spire Rock (for mountain climbers). Sprinker Recreation Center has it all. And those spaces are really just the tip of the iceberg. The community center accommodates families of all sizes and interests with its spate of kid- and parent-friendly activities. You and your crew can also play ping-pong or pickleball, face off on the soccer field, or go ice-skating in opposite directions if it's been a long day of family fun.
Basketball season isn’t the most important time for a player according to Coach Isaac Watson: it’s the off-season. To keep kids’ skills sharp, Coach Isaac hosts year-round clinics and camps through BBallers United. Though geared toward boys and girls ages 13–18, sessions are open to young athletes of all ages and experience levels looking to enrich their game. Under Coach Isaac’s tutelage, ballers exhaust themselves with drills that hone individual quickness, ball handling, and proper shooting technique. And since the game is as much psychological as it is physical, students learn tricks for handling the pressure that comes from playing intimidating players or teams. That being said, players do sample some on-court action during scrimmages meant to instill fundamental team dynamics.
