Primary Aspects of Player Development

Skill Level

The player’s ability to Dribble, Pass, Shoot and play D.

Basketball Iq

The player’s ability to understand the strategic workings of the game.

Athletic Ability

The player’s relative speed, strength, and other athletic qualities.


The player’s ability to be fearless, resilient and a great teammate.


The player’s ability to individually express themselves on court.
These qualities are best developed over long periods of time and high amounts of exposure to ALL of the following mediums:
Legitimized Basketball Games
Team Trainings
Individual Skills Workouts
Small Group Skills Workouts
Unorganised Pick up Basketball
The Weight Room
The Film / Whiteboard Room

Every upcoming Basketball player faces constant challenges in their journey such as:

Playing for multiple teams with conflicting demands and commitments
Facing uncertainties around their minutes or role on the team 
Managing the expectations from within themselves
Managing their perceived expectations from others around them 
Struggling with a lack of skill, size or athletic ability compared to their peers 
Struggles with injury and being away from the game for periods of time
The more a player can engage in all the above activities the better the basketball player they will become in all of the 5 primary aspects of player development. Our Academy at Hoop33 focuses heavily on providing activities 3-7, backing the individual player throughout their long-term journey and supplementing and supporting them through their work in their respective team environments. The goal is coming out not only as a great Basketball player, but as a strong and balanced individual


Developing Basketball Skills

Skill development requires dedicated time and repetition – there is no easy way, other than working on your skill A LOT over time. Our program aims to provide our players with a place to put in this time, and the expertise to direct this time effectively. Our methodology places emphasis on 3 key training contexts that allow players to learn, understand and polish skills in layers and make them precise over time.

Context 1

“Technique” aka “Reps”

Where players can at first figure out the technical aspects of the skill they are working, and put in a lot of repetitions towards mastering that skill, without the presence of defence

Context 2


Practicing the skill against “practice defence” that mimics the game’s position and physicality in an ordered fashion, providing the “feel” of the skill in the game.

Context 3


Working on the skill in a fully live game scenario and understanding how it fits in.

We do this through coached Individual and Small Group skills work-outs as well as a platform of uncoached scrimmages that give players freedom to experiment and be creative with the skills they are training


Developing Basketball IQ

A player’s Basketball IQ can be summed up by their understanding of team concepts such as offensive spacing, strategic actions, defensive positioning and rotations, team roles, time and tempo management, and team based sets and structures

This is Developed through two methods:

A big part of our program is the use of Whiteboard, detailed teaching and feedback on court, along with utilising off-court film sessions in our film room to surround players with mediums in which they can learn the game on an intellectual level which is a huge part of their future success.


Developing Athletic Ability

Strength and Conditioning is one of the most undervalued aspects in a player’s development journey. Through following a structured program every player can improve their:

Balance & Coordination
Ability to pick up skills
This leads towards better results on court in the long term as well as reducing the risk of injuries through better movement mechanics and a player’s ability to control their bodyweight

Our Program

Our strength and conditioning program is fully integrated with our Basketball program including:

Year round Gym Programming
Gym workouts guided by our trainers
Consistent athlete well-being monitoring
Injury rehab assistance
Tracking of data pertaining to progressions in strength and fitness levels


Developing the Mindset

Every person who comes through our door we want to connect with and inspire. Our Academy members are our people, and are under our care, and it is our goal to build and steer them towards taking responsibility for their lives, becoming driven, proactive and achieving people who love the process. We do this through pushing the following Aspects / Pillars of a successful person that will not only help them achieve in Basketball, but in all their journeys in life.
These concepts are always layered into our training, into our coaching style. We take our athletes through them in workshops, in everyday discussions and we use them to maximise the effect of our drills.
