SPDBasketball Training Team Program

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. 

All athletes participate in at least one Player Development Practice per week and have the option to attend as many as three practices per week. Initially players are grouped by age. The ES practices are grades 3-5 and the MS practices are grades 6-8.

Because the vocabular, drills and concepts are consistent across all practices and age groups, players are easily able to attend a different practice if a conflict with their regular practice time arises periodically or if it is beneficial for their individual development. ​

Player Development Practices are largely focused on individual fundamentals - shooting, passing, & dribbling as well as footwork, ballhandling, rebounding, timing, spacing, communication and decision making. 

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.
