The Illinois Sports Safety Guidelines create an opportunity this Fall to focus even more deeply on individual skill development, shooting and conditioning in order to increase our success in preparation for spring/summer AAU Season of 2021. We want each player to focus on getting better in order to have greater individual/team outcomes. With basketball being designated as a medium risk sport, there will be no Fall competitions which provides us time and focus.
With these guidelines, we are designating and dedicating the Fall as AAU Developmental Bootcamp.
The Fall AAU Bootcamp runs September 1 to Oct 25. The team will gather four (4) times per week for one hour: Tue and Thu evenings 6-7pm, Sat and Sun mornings 8:30-10am. The athletes will focus on game-like shooting and skill repetition. Each athlete will working closely with coaches on their specific developmental skill needs. We will use the time to take a more customized approach. We will invest time in getting faster and stronger. And we will dedicate one full session weekly to fast-paced scrimmage to have a place to implement the skill work and gain feedback.
