From Our Editors
The folks at Team Footprintz believe there's a difference between those who play basketball and basketball players. Their goal is to create and nurture the latter group—players whose basketball IQ and court vision rival their jump shots, who value substance as much as style. Hoopers and ballers become players courtesy of the instructors, all of whom have played or coached at the high-school and college levels—and who share the belief that the fundamentals are the building blocks necessary to become a true basketball player.
In that vein, Team Footprintz offers intensive classes, camps, and personal- and group-training sessions that cover the fundamentals: ball handling, shooting, defense, and footwork. Still, each instructor brings his own personal energy to classes, informed by his experiences as a player or coach. Team Footprintz offers classes for kids as young as 6, including AAU training for high-school-aged players.
