Skill Development Practices
For players that are unable to commit to a full season of practices and tournaments or for players that we are unable to offer a spot on a team after tryouts, skills-only practices are a great option to help players develop their game. These are age-based workouts in which any player from 2nd-11th grade can participate. There will be 11 practices and the total cost is $200. Skills practices take place on Mondays at the West Warwick Civic Center and last 1 hour. Time slots are 5:30-6:30, 6:30-7:30 and 7:30-8:30 with the younger players typically in the 5:30 time slot. The director will email the practice times to all participants a week before the first practice. Players will receive a RI Magic t-shirt.
At our skills practices, we teach the same 6 concepts each week, utilizing age and skill appropriate drills to teach those concepts. Drills are varied each week. The concepts that are taught every session are:
1. Ball Handling
2. Footwork/Offensive Moves
4. Player to Player defense
Finally, our skills practices end with 3v3
so players can incorporate what we taught them
into a game situation.
