At Impact basketball we know family comes first. By having seasons piggy-back off one another, it help families plan vacations. We recognize families might have other children as well, so family
time is important. It also lowers cost to our families with one Try-Out, less administration and no interruption in practicing with same coach. This results in improving your player’s skill set.
It really depends on what grade level your child is entering into basketball. For example most club teams cut 2nd – 4th Grade. At Impact we train them to see if the desire is there to play the game. Players above 4th grade are evaluated in our tryout sessions. We evaluate each player on their grasp of the fundamentals of basketball such as dribbling, shooting, defense, etc. We also look for individuals that can run and jump without limitations. We are looking for HUSTLE. Players have to have willingness to learn and have supportive parents or guardians that allow our system to work.
Impact Basketball has a training system that helps players develop and gain confidence. Impact is a family-comes-first program with an educational tutoring program for kids that need tutoring, helping develop a complete Student Athlete.
