Why join the Equal Shot FAMILY?
Our mission here at Equal Shot is to develop leaders and problem solvers who can go add value into the community. We do so by running an academy style athletic program that offers world-class athletic development, but also goes well beyond the scope of basketball. We believe Equal Shot is a movement, a family, on a mission to change our communities by first understanding our value then going and adding it to the world around us.
Is my son or daughter good enough for basketball training?
Short answer: yes. There is no required skill set for basketball training. The only requirement is a desire to want to get better! Everyone has to start from somewhere, and there is no shame or embarrassment about being a beginner. Our standard here for success is a willingness to work hard and get better, not just results.
Are basketball training sessions different from a team practice?
Basketball training sessions are different from a team practice because training sessions focus mainly on the individual skills of the athlete. Team concepts are taught and practiced during training sessions, but they are focused mainly on the personal development of each individual athlete rather than developing an entire team.
Why should my son or daughter attend training?
If your child has a love for the game of basketball and wants to improve, training is a must! In order to improve we must work on our craft, whatever it is. In order to do that, we need direction from professionals who know what it takes to get better. Another reason is that athletics teaches characteristics and skills that are useful for the rest of life: work ethic, discipline, humility, authenticity, coachability, teamwork, etc. Athletics is one of the greatest ways to teach a young person these things. We understand that not every athlete we train here will become collegiate or professional athletes, but our goal is to prepare them to become leaders in society!
Can a trainer make my son or daughter good enough to…?
Each individual athlete has a different “ceiling,” meaning each person’s potential is different. Some will be able to play collegiately or professionally and some will be good high school players. As trainers we cannot promise any athlete will reach a certain level, but what will happen is we will help them reach their ceiling and potential, whatever that may be.
