The lessons they don’t teach in school

The DRIVE Summer Academy will provide a comprehensive basketball skill development, performance training and enrichment program – something an NBA player would experience prior to the start of the season. We will immerse and engage participants in development activities to provide hope and expose participants to the power of the mind and how to use it to their advantage in healthy ways.

Focus Areas
  • Comprehensive development of individual positional skills
  • Rigorous, full-time strength and conditioning program
  • Personal enrichment activities such as mindfulness, meditation, and yoga
  • Mike Lee, Vice President, Program Director – Skill Development
  • Steve Becker, Program Director – Strength & Conditioning
  • The Academy is open to boys in grades 9-12
  • We are currently recruiting 4 point guards, 4 post players, and 8 wings to participate
  • All participants are selected by DRIVE and must meet eligibility requirements

Two consecutive weeks of half-day sessions:

  • 9AM-9:55AM: Enrichment Activity or Motivational Speaker
  • 10AM-12PM: Split for basketball skill development and performance training
