ACADEMY of charlotte
Coach Julian Wright is pleased to announce the company's launch of A.D.A.P.T. Basketball Academy of Charlotte ("The Academy") which is set to take place in April of 2020!
Coach Wright has formed A.D.A.P.T. Basketball Academy to establish an intentional and disciplined approach to becoming a complete student-athlete, on and off the court.
There are 2 tiers for young athletes in grades K-12. For each skill level, 20 spots are available between both genders.
Tier 1, Beginner: Young athletes between the ages of 5-8 start at this level.
Tier 1, Progressive: Young athletes between the ages of 9-11 start at this level.
Tier 2, Intermediate: Young athletes between the ages of 12-15 are at this level.
Tier 2, Advanced: Young athletes between the ages of 14-16 are at this level.*
Tier 2, College Prep: Young athletes between the ages of 16-19 are at this level.*
Annually, there will be 5 "mini-mesters" (mini semesters) which consist of a workload of 8-weeks on-the-court and 2 "cool down weeks**" to rest, use complimentary shooting sessions, and/or take an enrichment class. Coach Wright and at times, guest speakers, will visit A.D.A.P.T. Basketball's facility to discuss various off-the-court topics that can help athletes and parents alike, gain a healthy perspective on the ins-and-outs within the sports world and become more knowledgeable.
*For skill levels Advanced and College Prep in Tier 2, each athlete must be pass their assessments to be enrolled. Deposits will be refunded if a young athlete has a reserved spot in The Academy prior to combine and does not pass the evaluation based on the minimum and maximum age within a specific tier and skill level. The curriculum within Tier 2 is designed to ensure elite instruction with less time spent on a few student-athletes who may need more attention regarding basic and intermediate principles. There will be floating sessions throughout the year to break down certain concepts to still aid in young athletes' development.
**At the end of each athletic year in the beginning of March, there will be a 6-week intermission to ensure young athletes are given a mental and physical breaks. With one exception to the "cool down weeks" aforementioned, there will not be an intermission between the first 2 mini-mesters as A.D.A.P.T. Basketball will carve out more time for enrollment, combines, and player evaluations (tier/skill level placement) before its subsequent athletic year commences.
Each mini-mester will contain on-the-court tactics and hints of sports psychology that go beyond technical basketball skills. There will be bi-weekly homework given so young athletes can do drills at home and/or at a gym to fill in the gaps of time between sessions and emphasize accountability on the parents and players' end to get extra repetitions just as it is in academia. Also, quizzes will be administered to athletes within all of the tiers to keep everyone sharp and retain the information (new terms and concepts) throughout the mini-mesters.
To make sure the "drills come to life," all who are enrolled at The Academy are automatically opted into A.D.A.P.T. Basketball's Spring, Summer, and Fall Leagues & Open Gyms that will also start in April of 2020. Putting the politics of middle school, high school, prep school, and AAU/travel basketball aside, players are guaranteed minutes throughout each mini-mester and given a chance to receive high-level coaching during and after game play.
Simultaneously, Coach Wright will be launching an Online Basketball Academy with pre-packaged instruction, catering towards players who are in the lowest tier and skill levels, which could be an economical solution for those who still desire a structured curriculum to build one's skill sets, whether they live in the Charlotte metro area or not.
To allow for some synchronous communication amongst all who have enrolled, at least once a mini-mester, Coach Wright will use the video conferencing software Zoom in order to do webinars (presentation style) and meetings (small groups) that allow breakout rooms for interaction among each other and with Coach Wright via live Q & A.
Whether clients enroll into The Academy and take classes in person or online, Coach Wright's curriculum has been put together with the mindset of enhancing the experience of parents/legal guardians and kids, understanding that commitment and consistency are major keys to witnessing constant progress.
For all parents/legal guardians who live in the Charlotte metro area and are interested in enrolling their child(ren) in The Academy at its facility: email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information regarding pricing, programming/typical scheduling throughout mini-mesters, pre-enrollment incentives, multi-sibling discounts, and exclusive amenities afforded to entrants.
