HIGH SCHOOL SKILLS ACADEMY

 

Off-season development is critical to achieving the competitiveness necessary for AAU and high school basketball play.  Small group high school skills academy sessions will advance key individual skills and confidence. 

Players will:

  • Increase conditioning, speed, and agility
  • Advance on-the-move dribbling to break down defenders
  • Improve shooting through sharpened techniques and repetition
  • Develop weak-hand finishing at the rim
  • Learn movement without the ball
  • Improve on-ball defense
  • Improve key off-ball defensive techniques

The High School Skills Academy will be led by:

Joe Fuller, Assistant Head Coach for the 2021 VHSL Class 5 State Champions Stone Bridge Boys' Varsity Basketball.  Coach Fuller has been  coaching youth sports for over 25 years.  He has been training and coaching with LBA since 2015 including 2018 Team Attack Sigma and 2026 Team Attack Blue.   Coach Fuller holds a USA Basketball Youth Development Gold Coach License.

Steve Douglas, Varsity Head Coach, Woodgrove Boys' Basketball, 2010 -2019; Varsity Assistant Coach, Broad Run Girl's Soccer, 2017 - present.  In 2018, Coach Douglas was named the Virginia High School Region 4C Basketball Coach of the Year.  He has been coaching youth sports for over 25 years. 

Ben Kling,  Varsity Assistant Coach, Stone Bridge Boy's Basketball and Head Coach, 2029 Team Attack Blue.

SKILLS ACADEMY

 

Skills Academy, our weekly training sessions held every season, covers the fundamental and tactical aspects of the game broken down into training segments identified as Fundamental Segment, Game Condition Segment and Game Segment. It is a proven training methodology adopted and used internationally for the development of players. The Skills Academy is geared at helping each athlete possess the required skills to give them the best chance of making a school or travel team the next tryout season.

Skills Academy are led by LBA experienced trainers. Trainer to player ratios are kept low to provide individual feedback and meet each player at their level.
