A.D.A.P.T. BASKETBALL

CAROLINA ACADEMY

Coach Julian Wright is pleased to announce the company's launch of A.D.A.P.T. Basketball Carolina Academy ("The Academy") which is set to take place in April of 2020!

 

Coach Wright has established The Academy to encourage and educate with an intentional and disciplined approach to help student-athletes be well-rounded on and off the court. 

 

The Academy is offered to young athletes from ages 6 until 18 (as long as one year of 4-year high school eligibility remains).

 

ALL skills (athletic, offensive, and defensive), terminology, and schemes (how to be effective within offensive sets and defensive formations) are taught correctly which build a solid foundation for kids to progress through their regimens efficiently. 

OVERVIEW OF LOGISTICS

There are 2 tiers for young athletes between ages 6 and 18.

For each tier, 45 spots are available (all co-ed classes).

Tier 1 - Maximum Capacity of 45 Participants

Beginner: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 6-7 start at this level. 

Progressive, Phase 1: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 8-9 start at this level.

Progressive, Phase 2: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 10-11 start at this level.

 

Tier 2 - Maximum Capacity of 45 Participants 

Intermediate, Phase 1: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 12-13 start at this level.

Intermediate,  Phase 2: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 14-15 start at this level.

Advanced: 15 Young athletes between the ages of 14-18 may start at this level.*

Throughout the year, there are 5 terms. The workload consists of 8 weeks on-the-court, concurring League Play or Open Gyms, and at least 1 "cool-down week" to rest, make use of complimentary shooting sessions, and/or partake in an enrichment class. Coach Wright and at times, guest speakers may 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 throughout life in general.

*For the Advanced skill level within Tier 2, each young athlete must pass their assessment to be enrolled. 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 are be floating classes and sessions throughout the year to break down certain concepts which still aid in young athletes' development
 

Each term contains on-the-court tactics and hints of sports psychology that go beyond technical basketball skills. There are bi-weekly homework assignments 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, young athletes in both the tiers take a mid-term quizzes and finals to keep everyone sharp and retain the information (new terminology and concepts) throughout each term.

YES, WE GUARANTEE 30 HOURS OF SKILL WORK EACH TERM!

ALSO, PARTICIPATING IN THE ACADEMY ALLOWS FOR TRAINING WITHOUT WORRIES OF NEEDING TO BOOK IN ADVANCE OR BEING WAITLISTED!

 

IMPORTANT NOTES:

To make sure the "drills come to life," all who are at least 8 years old by August 31, 2020 and pre-register for The Academy are automatically opted into A.D.A.P.T. Basketball's Spring, Summer, Fall & Double-Winter Leagues as well as Open Gyms. However, League play will not take place until the fall of 2020 as locations are currently being secured.

 

Putting the politics of middle school, high school, and AAU/travel basketball aside, players are guaranteed minutes throughout each term and given a chance to receive high-level coaching during and after game play. More information on the League and Open Gym will be posted in the beginning of March.

To allow for synchronous communication amongst all who have enrolled, at least once each term, Coach Wright deploys video conferencing software in order to do webinars (presentation style) and meetings (small groups) that allow breakout rooms to interact amongst each other and with Coach Wright via live Q & A.

 

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. 

PRE-REGISTRATION

ATTENTION!

Households who desire to pre-register their child(ren) must create a MINDBODY profile with A.D.A.P.T. Basketball (whoever is the primary account holder) as well as their child(ren). Each tier and skill level has a mandatory age minimum and maximum so it's crucial that each client's date of birth is stored in our system under each profile.

The time period surrounding pre-registration is formatted on a first-come, first-serve basis and as long as a client perpetually makes payments from the time they register, they will keep their position until the end of this year's Academy (similar to enrollment policies at day cares). In the case of no spots remaining within a particular skill level, there will be floating group classes, semi-private classes, shooting sessions, and private lessons offered throughout the year to still aid in young athletes' development.

 

A deposit of $650 temporarily secures one's place in The Academy. 

 

For families registering multiple children, please pay a $650 deposit for each child. After signing this electronic agreement, we will contact you shortly thereafter to execute the same agreement via Docusign.

 

However, this document will ask for detailed information of the participant and acknowledgement that there is more paperwork and procedures that need to be completed by April 10, 2020 (11:59) in order to finalize enrollment. The amount of subsequent installments after the initial installment are determined by the status of a client/household, if they accept or deny the offer to sign up as Day Ones Members.

 

Day Ones Perks
• Widespread discounts of 20%+ for all routinely offered classes, sessions, clinics, camps, and terms for The Academy
• Entry card activation fee waived
• Access to members-only shooting sessions
• Notifications of sign ups for camps, clinics, webinars, enrichment classes, special events [parents' night out, Nets @ Night (glow-in-the-dark shooting sessions), etc.] 168 hours (7 days) before the general public
