2019 Play Pride Academy Training and Team Options (Grades 2nd – 7th)
PRIDE ACADEMY is committed to providing the highest level of basketball training and competition in the Indianapolis area. We are also committed to pricing our programs so all players have the access and ability to participate in state of the art basketball training. We are confident that PRIDE ACADEMY pricing is amongst the lowest when compared to other area programs. Come train with our diverse and talented group of players and coaches at a fraction of the costs of other programs! Last, PRIDE ACADEMY has formed strategic partners that provide volunteer opportunities to help cover training costs for families that need the help. PRIDE ACADEMY is open and affordable to all!
- PRIDE ACADEMY Training Sessions (90 minutes)
- $20.00/session (at the door)
- $160.00/package of 10
- $300.00/package of 20
- $900.00/unlimited all 2019 (approx. 70 sessions)
Training sessions are open to all players from any other academies, schools, teams, leagues, etc. Players do not have to play for a PRIDE ACADEMY team to train with the best in the area. Most other programs only offer 30 or 60 minute trainings. PRIDE ACADEMY trainings are 90 minutes! Check our EVENTS page for times and locations of trainings. Get an advantage, train with PRIDE ACADEMY!
Attention parents: We encourage parents to attend and observe the training sessions. However, we ask that all observers stay off the training courts and refrain from any sideline coaching during the sessions. This helps make the training process more effective and less distracting for ALL the players participating! We appreciate your cooperation in this regard.
- PRIDE ACADEMY Teams
Want to coach a PRIDE ACADEMY team? Create your own squad! PRIDE ACADEMY leadership will guide you through the process. In addition, through the above PRIDE ACADEMY training sessions, you and your child will have the opportunity to meet other parents and children with similar skill sets and common goals. Stop wasting time and money at the for-profit programs only to have your child overlooked and underdeveloped!
PRIDE ACADEMY teams play locally in the IYBL, in addition, will have opportunities to play in regional AAU tournaments! Players are encouraged to participate in PRIDE ACADEMY training when not practicing or playing games with their team. Players need more than just team practices and games to improve!
Attention coaches: Each coach will be responsible for scheduling location and time for his/her team practices and paying any league and tournament fees for his/her team. In addition, every coach is REQUIRED to attend our coaching certification workshop in order to have a team. Our workshops (conducted by local area high school coaches) will educate our coaches in areas of sportsmanship, code of conduct, and set out values and expectations of having a PRIDE ACADEMY team. Coaches interested in having a team please contact Coach Daniels for details. Next available workshop will be held December 19th, 2018.
