The Garden State Rollergirls, New Jersey's premiere all-female roller derby league, boasts a roster of over 40 skaters during their seventh season. Equipped with four-wheeled skates, the athletes crush competition during bouts of two 30-minute halves. While designated jammers—typically the fastest skaters—attempt to lap opposing rollers, blockers use a lethal combination of shoulder and hip checks.

During water breaks when young ballers are relacing their high-tops on the edges of the gym, the coaching staff at Basketball Stars of NY might take a break to goof around on the court; but, for them—former NCAA Division I athletes who’ve spent time in professional leagues throughout the world—goofing around translates to throwing down a vicious tomahawk dunk, effortlessly splashing three-balls through the rim from behind the arc or subtly raising the rims during practice so players think that they're shrinking. No matter the act, these feats typically snag boys' and girls' attention during their private lessons, camps, or weekend programs or clinics. Progamming director and coach David Brown says the coaches' athletic prowess and physicality helps players focus, drawing a clear path between the hard work of practice drills to the payoff of a power dunk. In small groups split by age, skill, and position, coaches instill the value of fundamentals such as ball handling and rebounding. They also break the bad habits of youth, steering players away from the tendency to shoot nothing but threes, dribble with their head down, and fade away on simple 10-foot jumpers.
