Even though the summer league season is short, there is no better time of the year for a young basketball player. It is often a looser brand of basketball and the perfect time to work on your new moves, your new game. To try things you often wouldn’t try out on your club or school team for fear of failure or getting pulled by coach. It also is the perfect time to build confidence as you admirably compete with different kids than you would during the school year !!
I’ll be going to 5 different summer leagues the next few months, but not taking a single shot in any of them, just watching. The first 4 I will be introducing myself and passing out information to parents and players, basically recruiting for #LegendHoops.
