The Mile High Centennials Basketball Academy firmly believes that every athlete that genuinely loves the game of basketball and wants to improve should be given a shot to train and compete beyond the recreational level. The club offers the following basketball training services:
Basketball Player Evaluation - comprehensive evaluation that grades a player's shooting form & accuracy, ball handling & dribbling, passing & catching, defensive intensity, rebounding tenacity, athletic & game play-making ability, hoops IQ, plus attitude & effort, work ethic, coachability and moral fiber. Evaluations can help establish a benchmark, or to gauge if a player is ready for the competitive hoops level of play.
Basketball Skills Clinics - boot camp style group training sessions that hone in on individual player development and fundamentals, plus competitive games after each drill to apply lessons learned, all within a high intensity, enthusiastic and FUN environment. Basketball clinics run between 1-2 hours each and can be a part of a series. Example themes include jump-shooting, finishing at the rim, basketball toughness, power post moves, game reps, and more.
Basketball Day Camps - specialized group training sessions that entail a mix of individual skill development and fundamentals, plus a heavy dose of 2v2 to 5v5 scrimmages to teach team concepts. Youth basketball camps run between 3-4 hours long and span over 3-4 days.
Basketball Leagues - our leagues are slightly different in that there are no standings, no set teams, and no wins/losses records. All that matters are GAME REPS out of plenty of 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5 scrimmages. Teams are formed at the beginning of each session, so players get to compete with and against a variety of players. Youth basketball leagues run for 3 hours, and are offered year-round. The most popular league is the Winter High School Development League, strictly for players that get cut, or are simply not playing with a high school winter team, for whatever reason.
Private Basketball Coaching & Training - customized basketball workouts and plans unique to each player that can hone in on areas needing immediate improvements or the approach can be more holistic to develop a well-rounded and skilled student-athlete.
Performance Training for Basketball - strength, agility and performance training is no longer optional for youth basketball players, it's a necessity. The top high school hoops programs in the nation are committed to performance training, and you should be too.
Competitive Basketball Teams – all players interested in making a competitive basketball youth team must first be evaluated. Peak competitive team seasons are spring, summer and fall. 8th grade and below teams also compete in the winter. Open, group TRYOUTS are typically held at the beginning of each season: Early March for spring, mid-June for summer, and mid-August for fall. 1-on-1 evaluations are conducted year-round, and don't necessarily have to be for team placement.
