Basketball Training

Carlos Strong Basketball Training

Coach Carlos Strong offers basketball training programs for youth, helping young athletes from elementary to high school age.

There has never been a more decorated basketball player to come out of Athens than Carlos Strong. As a stalwart of the Cedar Shoals team, he (along with teammate Terrell Bell) was one of the most sought after players in local prep history. Just about every major college came knocking on the 6 foot 8 inch tall power forward’s door. Eventually Carlos signed with the University of Georgia and led the Bulldogs to post-season tournaments under Hugh Durham. One of the few McDonalds All-Americans, Carlos played professionally for many years in the NBA and in Europe. Recently, Carlos Strong was inducted into the Athens Hall of Fame.

Since all player goals are different, Carlos Strong training sessions are designed to give each player the individual attention needed to improve their basketball ability and take their game to the next skill level. Sessions focus on developing strategies and drills that build on existing abilities and strengthen areas of weakness. Sessions are intense and players are pushed hard to accomplish goals and achieve new skills. However, it is Coach Strong’s approach that differentiates his coaching style. With a calm and encouraging manner, Coach Strong carefully guides your player through short but direct drills. Each drill builds on the previous and has a purpose. Slowly and methodically, your beginner player will master each techinique with confidence. The practices are fast paced to keep the action going, but not so fast that the student gets lost. For intermediate and advanced players, Coach Strong garners the same admiration and respect from his students, but of course the expectations are higher, the challenges harder, to match the players ability and learning style.

1 on 1 Training

Private 1 on 1 training consists of 4 sessions, 1 per week. We offer training programs for both advanced and beginner players. Since all player goals are different, training sessions are designed to give each player the individual attention needed to improve their basketball ability and take their game to the next skill level. Sessions focus on developing strategies and drills that build on existing abilities and strengthen areas of weakness. These sessions will cover both perimeter and post play that will make you a well rounded player.

4 session Package - 1 hour long session per week
8 session Package - 2 hour long sessions per week

Based on availability - First come, first served. Please keep in mind many clients choose to continue their sessions so a day/time slot may not come available on a monthly basis.

For additional questions regarding Strong 1 on 1 Training Packages, email basketball@utscenter.com.

Group Training (10 Player Max)

Group training consist of 4 sessions (1 per week) and are designed for the advanced and beginner player. The sessions are unique in the fact that each player gets hands-on attention and training along with the chance to compete against other players with similar skill levels. These sessions will develop the skills and give confidence to the beginner player and take the advanced player out of their comfort zone and push each player to strengthen all of their weaknesses. These sessions will cover both perimeter and post play that will make you a well rounded player.

Package Information:
Training Groups (3rd – 5th), (6th - 8th) and (9th -12th) grades

Team Training

Our experienced staff will provide your team with a truly unique basketball experience through training and competition. Designated team practice times and live games against high-level players, including College players (when available), provide teams with an opportunity to prepare for their upcoming competition while also developing individually. Your team’s program will be completely customized to fit your player’s weaknesses, with direct consultation from the team’s coaching staff and management. We will integrate any and all concepts that the coaching staff would like to implement and focus the training on areas that the team’s coaches have deemed deficient. Our training and team-building drills make this a one-of- a-kind opportunity for team and individual development. Together, we'll create your customized plan for the team making sure that the end result is players that are vastly improved in all areas, more confident and mentally stronger, and ready to compete. While the training will focus on individual improvement for each player, it will be built in the context of what the team needs that player to do to become a better team.
