The SPDBasketball Training Team Program is an inclusive basketball community rooted in Kensington, MD and the surrounding area. The focus of the program is to provide premier year-round player development for boys and girls grades 3-8. 


Except on rare occasions, all basketball coaching is provided by Coach Burke, who is a former Division I Head Coach with over 30 years of youth coaching experience. 


For as little as $110 per month, players have the opportunity to attend one weekly Skills Practice, one weekly Decision Making Workout and play supervised Pickup Games multiple times per week:


Weekly Skills Practice -  These practices are largely focused on individual fundamentals - shooting, passing, & dribbling as well as footwork, ballhandling, timing & spacing. 

Weekly Decision Making Workouts - These workouts are intended to improve a players fundamentals and decision making ability under pressure. The workouts involve live situations (1 on 1, 2 on 2, etc.) with certain restrictions, e.g. no dribbling, must trap all ball screens, etc. 


Weekly Pickup Games -  Players pick teams and call their own fouls. Winning matters - winners stay on and losers wait on the sideline for the next game. This is how the greats of the game learned to play.  This "old school" approach to learning the game teaches so much more than just basketball.
