Win the game.
Become a Shot Maker
Games are won because every player is on-point with all of their skills—running, ball control, court awareness. But at the end of the day, there’s one thing that makes or breaks a game.
Putting the ball in the basket.
It’s the shot that puts the numbers up on the scoreboard.
“Playing at the next level is a journey worth taking, but you have to be realistic about where you’re at and what you need to do to get to that next level.”
COACH DONALD WATTS | WATTS BASKETBALL
Master the Art of Shooting
Under the guidance of seasoned veterans, players will learn the fundamentals of shooting, get individualized development, and progress towards mastery.
Focus. Drive. Discipline.
Watts coaches instill players with the mental toughness to face every single day with relentless pursuit of excellence. We focus on developing a growth mindset and individual growth. With this level of support, players adopt the mindset and the actions of an elite-level player.
Form. Rhythm. Balance. Accuracy.
Players learn to execute and master the high-performing jump shot. Watts Coaches deliver targeted hands-on training on how to achieve optimal balance and to maximize shot accuracy from anywhere on the court. Players learn what it takes to shoot off of the dribble, shoot off of the catch, free throws and more.
Footwork & Mastery
Players learn the nuances of footwork and bring the mentality and mechanics together to master the art of shooting. Coaches train players to counter tough defensive plays by creating space to get shots off comfortably, making them an unstoppable offensive force on the court.
