California Player Development Academy(CALPDA), was created by Brendan Devane to highlight the importance and appreciation for the fundamentals of the game. We hear this within the basketball community often these days, the fundamentals of the game. But do we truly value them for what they can offer? Is it more important to just get "exposure" without acknowledging the importance of repetition and focus? Or are we just setting ourselves up to be "exposed"? Either way, the game is supposed to be competitive and fun. The best way to accomplish this is by dedicating one self to appreciate the value fundamental skills offer. This value can indeed be measured by how hard one works and how well one is trained. Repetition and proper training are the cornerstones of improving your fundamental skill sets.
What are the fundamentals really and how will it help me become a better player and person? In our opinion, fundamentals are based on two key components, Technique and Repetition. Provide the proper technique and repeat extensively and the probabilities of the following outcomes are quite high:
These are just a few of the main positive outcomes. The best part of these outcomes are that they are lifelong lessons. Come experience more at our academy as we offer a unique method of teaching fundamentals that incorporates both east coast and west coast styles.
