Positional Training Academies


The JJVA positional training academies are designed to provide athletes with an opportunity to train based on their position. Sessions are designed in order to help athletes fully comprehend the important responsibilities within each of the positions and skills. Drills are designed in increasing level of difficulty both physically and mentally allowing for athletes to increase not only their ability to play their position, but understand the game in a more complex, and strategic way. Our goal is to provide athletes with the proper amount of both on court repetitions and off court analysis in order to improve in their desired positions.
