UNITED STATES. Baltimore. The USA National Select Player Development and Training Center will be the first nationally focused basketball training center to be open to players of all ages to operate in the United States. On 19th July, USA National Select announced that their facility will be in Baltimore, Maryland and registration will be open for clients nationally beginning August 2020.
The developmental model that will assist players will focus on teaching particular aspects of the game to athletes at specific stages of development. This systematic approach will provide the skills and abilities needed to achieve excellence in basketball. The delivery of an aligned, consistent, and systematic development system ensures that every players needs are being met at every level of programming. Every participant in the program will see the pathways which will lead him or her to maximize their success on the level of play for them.
The USA National Select Player (USANS) will provide both a short and long-term player/athlete development model design to the specific parameters of each participant’s development. In addition, developmental progress will be provided to national scouting services, media outlets and college coaches and decision makers to create opportunities for each participant.
The USA National Select Player Development and Training Center, a 501c3, will be run by Kyndall “Coach” Francis who has worked with some top high school and college prospects in the country; some starting as young as elementary and middle school. When asked about the success of his former players and how he plans to duplicate that with future prospects Francis states, “Just like any learning environment those players were trained to be elite; as you would a doctor, a lawyer or accountant. But most importantly, those guys and the players that will come after them; they will need to be taught the game; not a position – especially in today’s game of position-less basketball; individual player development will continue to be the foundation to success in the National Select program.”
The USA National Select Player Development and Training Center will offer a variety of basketball and fitness services for both male and female players, including: 3-on-3 Basketball Games/Leagues with Referees, Daily Basketball Boot Camp, Weekday and Weekend Clinics, Strength, Conditioning, Speed, Agility & Vertimax Training, Shooting Machine & Jump Shot Classes, Tiny Tots Training & Leagues and One on One Private Training & Group Workouts.
