Daly Ultimate Basketball is an intense basketball program intended to improve players' basketball IQ in all levels of the game through intense training.
As an athlete growing up in New York City, I was able to have the resources to excel as a basketball player through individual training. Through this training, doors were opened to give me opportunities to play basketball at a higher level. As I grew older, I realized that the same opportunities that were available to me are not always available to basketball players, particularly in smaller communities. With this in mind, I decided to share my time and knowledge with willing athletes in Leon County and surrounding areas so they have the same opportunity of individual training to prepare them for the next level of competition. By using my knowledge of the game, I am able to help players through individual and small group training sessions on a court-structured environment. This is why I created Daly Ultimate Basketball.
Daly Ultimate Basketball will give players, at any skill level, the opportunity to have personal training that will take them to the next level of their game. By introducing players to repetition in drills to build muscle memory and fundamental knowledge of the game, my training sessions will be the key to players achieving their goals. Now more than ever, the enthusiasm of learning the game of basketball has greatly increased; however, the resources for learning the game of basketball are not always available to a number of players. Instead of putting a player in an environment which consists of a 15:1 player to coach ratio which gives the player little to no individual instruction, I teach at a maximum ratio of 6:1 per session which will allow you to see progression in the player's skill level.
Players are taught drills that increase their speed, quickness and agility. The majority of drills use equipment found around the house. Players perform ladder drills, lane slides, plyometrics, and jumping drills.
We work on drills that will help players be comfortable pivoting on either foot on the offensive end of the court. We also focus on the two foot jumps.
Point Guard Ball Handling
Players are taught the basics of ball handling and passing. Working on individual ball handling drills opens the player's mind to work on their skill alone as well as showing them the correct way of timing and proper execution for passing to teammates.
Swing Man Shooting
We teach players the following shooting form: finger on the valve, forming a "C" with your arm, guide hand thumb off the ball (with fingers spread wide). Their feet should be shoulder width apart with knees slightly bent. As players release the ball, we want them to have their elbow above their eye and their shooting hand looking like a wet dish rag with pointer finger pointing at rim. While practicing this form of shooting, players will put up over 300 shoots each session, guaranteed.
Wing Man Perimeter Moves
Perimeter play is a key element to being an offensive threat on the court. Through one on one, pivoting, and cutting off the screen drills, we will be able to turn you into a bigger threat on the court gearing for your next season.
Team/Man To Man Defense
Players learn proper defensive positioning while in a man to man 1 on 1, 2 on 3, trapping, screening defensive situation. When man is played, player must be in ball, denial or help position during all games.
Players are taught that "When the ball goes up, the hands go up with thumbs to the ears and fingers to the sky." We work on the basics of block out technique and keeping your man out of the lane.
Big Man Post Moves
Players that play in the front court (Power Forwards and Centers) will be introduced to many drills that college and even pro coaches use to get their players ready for the season.
