Specialty classes are a great way to focus on one particular skill or topic in a small group. Do you want to be the best three-point shooter of your team? Or do you feel like your ball handling could use some extra work? Does you coach wants you to become his go-to post player, but you need some extra post moves? All these issues are a great reason to join a specialty class.

Shooting the basketball is a down-up motion and can be broken down in multiple stages. The Quick DrawTM system teaches players to shoot without a basketball; positioning of the hands, squaring up, squatting down. When player receives the ball, he/she is already on the way up and will get a perfectly lined up shot up in 0.5 seconds. Quick DrawTM will speed up your jump shot by 60%. Would you like to become a phenomenal shooter like Steph Curry (Golden State Warriors), Ray Allen and JJ Redick (Philadelphia 76ers)?
