Our program consists of four teams: the Junior Varsity National Development team, the Regional Varsity Prep team, the National Varsity Prep team and our Global Post Graduate Team. Before joining our program, athletes go through a comprehensive identification, interview, and assessment process. Once admitted, each athlete is assigned a coach who closely collaborates with our strength and conditioning coach and athletic therapist. Together, they establish a baseline and identify areas for improvement. Based on this assessment, we create an Individual Performance Plan (IPP) tailored to each athlete, which becomes an integral part of our daily training schedule. With 50% of practice time dedicated to refining skills through situational activities, our student-athletes acquire the necessary basketball IQ to contribute effectively on the court.
We offer a meticulously designed periodized program that encompasses performance training, fundamental and advanced skill development, social-emotional and mental training, and intense team practices. Our strength and conditioning sessions follow a structured model, focusing on stabilization, strength, and power. Additionally, we prioritize active recovery exercises and mental preparation techniques such as mindfulness and yoga.
Our team practices revolve around skill and concept development, on-court decision-making, and strategic/tactical elements on both ends of the court. To further enhance their growth, we provide a robust schedule of competitive tournaments, exhibition games, and league play, offering opportunities both domestically and internationally.
As our student-athletes approach their senior or post-graduate years, our coaching staff works closely with them to formulate an extensive recruiting profile. We carefully match their demonstrated abilities and academic standing with potential college programs. Scholarships, both athletic and academic, worth thousands of dollars, are available for student-athletes in North America. Upon graduation from V3 Preparatory Academy, our basketball players are fully prepared to accept, compete for, and contribute to college basketball programs at their respective levels.
