Freestyle Select Basketball

freestyle-select

We are forming competitive teams, who will compete in high level brackets, some in an age division higher than their current age. Therefore, we feel like it’s important to host tryouts, to make sure we make the right combination of players, who have the right skill set, mentality and passion for the game.

About Us

Freestyle Sports started in the Austin area in 2016. In the last four years, we have grown to a household name when it comes to basketball training and skills development. Our approach of focusing on skill development, challenging players while keeping the pressure low, has proven to be successful for all ages and experience levels.

In 2017 we started coaching AAU select basketball, alongside of being head coaches for St. Gabriel’s Catholic School. We immediately noticed a big difference in coaching style and practice content between what we’re used to do in the European basketball leagues and what is accustomed in the AAU world (in the Austin area). We believe we need to be able to learn new skills, to get better and grow confidence, before we start to try to apply (in tournaments and games). Skill development and fundamentals come first; knowing WHY we do certain things, instead of just “because coach said so”. Knowing the WHY will help players to learn how to play basketball, instead of just running lines.

That’s why all of our coaches will teach basketball with the same methodology, in our private lessons, group classes and camps. Over the last few years we have had many clients asking if we have our own teams to play in tournaments. The answer was always “not yet”, because our focus is to develop basketball players the right way. We didn’t want to start a team with players who are unfamiliar with or uninterested in our methodology. We believe in taking your time, taking the right steps first.

But now the time is here!

 
 

Freestyle Sports offers basketball camps for kids of all ages and levels. With tremendous experience in the fundamental European style of basketball, our coaches are ready to work on all aspects of your game!
