"Don't worry about how you play, just have fun." Parents cheer on kids with that advice all the time, but Kierre Jordan, the skill-development trainer at All Or Nothing Basketball LLC, will not. His basketball-training sessions are age and skill-level appropriate, but they're designed to push players beyond their limits and propel them to a professional level of athleticism. That's why he only invites serious players to sessions, including NBA players and other professionals. But that doesn't mean Kierre ignores the needs of beginners or banishes fun from the gym. He also meets novices where they're at with basics, such as dribbling and passing, and encourages them to attend group sessions where they can play among friends.

Founded in 2013, the Bikini Basketball Association is comprised of five female teams in Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, and Philadelphia. Though the association's name suggests that players hit the court wearing swimwear, they actually play in tight-fitting spandex athletic gear that does not billow in the wind like traditional jerseys, threatening to fill with air and lift players off the court and out of the gymnasium.
