Summer Development

Summer should be all about development. It is the time to put in the work so that you can see growth when you step back on the court for the season. It can't be just random though so we have laid out a plan to help you with that work.

We are excited to launch our summer development package. 

We have 2 parts for this package.

What do you get to help you get your player ready for the upcoming season you may ask? 

Part #1 is Athleticism. We accomplish that with 20 Sessions at Pursuit Fitness. This is a basketball-specific strength, agility, plyometrics, and injury prevention program.

  • This is a phased system for maximum basketball fitness:
    Increase vertical and balance with lower body exercise
    Improve lateral speed and explosiveness with band resisted drills
    Build shooting and passing strength with upper body workouts

Athletic/Strength development is extremely important at this age. Beginning to develop muscle memory allows your player to become a well rounded athlete that has a solid foundation and gives them a chance to build on their skills and take their game to that "next" level.

  • It is 20 sessions for players in grades 6th, 7th, 8th. (4th/5th graders will receive 10 sessions) 

The camp dates will be July, August, September at Pursuit Fitness. After you enroll and pay for the Summer Development package you will receive a separate email to sign their waiver and schedule your player for the days and times that work for you and your family.

Part #2 Basketball Skill Development. Basketball skills (aka: fundamentals) are the basics of the game that help you no matter what level, team, or coach you play for. Like any sport, whether you're a professional athlete or a youth player just getting started, you need strong skills to be successful!

  • Training sessions with trainers from MBT, MN Heat. These sessions are for players that are just beginning their basketball journey or those that are looking to push themselves to see how far they can really grow!

    • These sessions will give your player many repetitions of Footwork, Shooting, Dribbling, Passing, Defense,  Rebounding  

    • To develop skill you need a lot of "good" repetitions in practice, not games.     

    • Sessions will be held at the trainers facilities and local Mounds View School District schools and begin in July with dates through September.

    • After you enroll and pay for the Summer Development package you will receive a separate email to sign their waiver and schedule your player for the days and times that work for you and your family.

The total cost for the Summer Development package is $100 which includes both the Athleticism 20 sessions with Pursuit Fitness and Basketball Skill Development with trainers. Click to Register your player for Summer Development.
