At the Emerald City Basketball Academy, we specialize in year-round player development. We would like to take an opportunity to explain our program. We have been in business since 2000, and since then have helped develop thousands of players, with many going on to play for college and even professional teams. By having your son or daughter train at ECBA, you can be assured that they are getting the kind of excellent coaching it takes to succeed.
ECBA is a program for all players at all levels. Maybe your son or daughter is a player getting ready for their next season, or they're trying to make a team they did not make last season. Perhaps your son or daughter is the player who wants to go from the bench to the starting lineup, or the player who is a starter and now wants to be all-league, or the all-league player who aspires to play in college. ECBA offers them the best possible chance to reach their basketball goals.
Unlike most AAU programs, ECBA offers a two part program, training and teams. We offer: year-round training to help develop individual skills and fundamentals, and our very successful team program, which helps your player apply the skills they've perfected, improving their ability to play within a team.
We are the leading training program in the NW. Our program offers five days a week of player development at multiple gym locations. We offer specialized classes created by our founder Jasen Baskett. All ECBA trainers, at all ECBA gyms, are trained to deliver the same, high quality, proven training system that is based on fundamentals and the unique 6 tier philosophy developed by Coach Baskett.
Bio-Mechanics – Teach the Athletic Side of the Basketball Technique
1 on 0 – Teach Breakdown body movements of the SKILL
Skill/Technique – Putting parts together to make 1 motion movement
1 on 1 – Taking all parts learned in the first 3 steps, now the player execute the skill/technique closely guarded
1 on 1 HELPSIDE – Using the 1 on 1 training and taking it to the next level, reading and reacting to help-side defense
2 on 2 – Finally, taking help-side defense to the next level with another defensive and offensive player, teaching players to see lanes and holes.
Players who attend ECBA attend an unlimited number of group training sessions and they have the opportunity for specialized one to one training. We offer classes that specialize in wing player development, combination classes that focus on different ways to succeed in different styles of offenses, point guard development, post development, and shooting. Within these classes, we focus on shooting form, moves to score, ways to set up shot opportunities, how to read the defense, etc. You’ve got to see us in action to really understand how much we can teach your son or daughter in such a short period of time. We extend an open invitation for you to come and watch one of our training sessions and see for yourself what makes ECBA such a unique program and how we can significantly improve your son or daughter's game.
Teams are formed 3 times a year: Fall (Sept-Nov), Winter (Dec-Mar), and Spring/Summer (Apr-Aug). By splitting seasons up, players can participate in other sports during those seasons, or play for their feeder or HS team. Our team structure stresses fundamental team basketball. We incorporate our training and fundamentals into our offensive and defensive play. All ECBA teams are coached by ECBA coaches who know how to teach motion offenses, pick and rolls, dribble drive, proper zone attack, press break, and fast break. We also stress the importance of solid man to man defense, rebounding, full court press, and transition defense, . In addition to these basic fundamental team concepts, our coaches also run quick hitters, zone traps, and special out of bounds plays that our coaches have learned and developed on their own through their years as players and coaches. Some of our teams are competitive at a national level and others at a local level. We have teams for all levels of play for boys and girls 3rd-HS.
Feel free to contact us to set up a free training class and/or practice at a gym near you. We look forward to building a relationship to help your son or daughter reach his/her maximum potential. We hope to hear from you soon.
