Player Development Program
This program is one of the cornerstones of the One on One instructional program. The Player Development Program groups players by ability based on a variety of measurable skill sets. Players that reach a defined skill level or complete a skills challenge advance to the next level.
Each class has a color name and each player is given a color-coded wrist-band to wear to their weekly session. The curriculum is customized for the skill level of each class color. There are 6 levels in the program, all with progressive skill challenges involving footwork, conditioning, basketball IQ, and basketball development. Players must practice and ultimately complete these challenges before graduating to the next level.
The Player Development Program was introduced to address one of the biggest issues in the traditional breakout for youth basketball programs.
Most youth basketball programs group players by age or grade, and due to the increasing popularity and competitiveness of youth basketball this is becoming more of a concern. Often times we see a wide variance in abilities amongst kids in any age group. With this in mind, One on One Basketball created the Player Development Program to coach players based on ability rather than age. The Player Development Program creates a quality learning environment where players' skill levels are equal.
