Whether they’re running camps, clinics, or private sessions, the coaches at Better Basketball Academy always have one goal in mind: improving their pupils’ on-court talents. Experienced coaches and players themselves, the academy’s First Aid- and CPR-certified staffers
help maintain a failure-free environment for kids to hone the game’s fundamentals.
Through technical instruction, drills, and scrimmages, children age 5–15 improve their dribbling, shooting, and teamwork, including forming human pyramids to help their shortest teammate dunk. To further inspire youngsters, the academy hosts monthly three-on-three tournaments where older players can showcase their alley-ooping and shot-blocking skills.
Climb up the rigging of a pirate's ship, grapple your way up through a wall-sized game of Tetris, scale the face of Mount Rushmore—and then let gravity gently lower you to the ground. ClimbZone USA's more than 70 whimsical indoor climbs capture the imagination before the ascent even begins, but the big attraction isn't the colorful trees, blocks, and stone-faced presidents. An auto-belay system puts even the youngest climbers in charge of their own journeys upward, carefully lowering them back to earth when they've reached their level. Spirits climb nearly as high as the guests themselves, thanks to the birthday parties, snacks on hand, and endorphins generated from the healthy workout a climb provides.
