Individual Skills With Coach Robinson (aka Coach R)
The Shoot-A-Way Information
Starting in September 2023
Individual skills with Coach R:) are available throughout the year.
Coach R’s philosophy on skills mirrors that of the stonecutters motto / dream: “When nothing seems to be happening, go look at the stonecutter who hammers away at his rock. He will hit that rock one hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and he knows that it wasn’t that blow that did it, but all of the other hits that came before it.” That’s very similar to basketball when you’re looking for results on the court… if you keep at it consistently, eventually you’ll see the results.
Individual skills are one of the more requested programs the Stealers offer. Individual skills run for an hour in length.
- $25.00 / session.
- Discounted package information is below.
Individual skills have been very important to the majority of Stealers who have gone on to play in college. Most of the skill work focuses on footwork, shooting and ball-handling in the hour. The hope is that participants will apply the skills being taught will eventually be applied in games.
The better players from / in our program have typically done four skills per month. Most of the time, one or two of those four skills are held at a time that is not necessarily convenient. However, those who have been great or are currently considered great from our program have been willing to do inconvenient things. That’s what has separated them from others.
Just from experience, the majority of skill requests come right before the start of travel ball season or right before the start of school ball season.
Beginning in September of 2023, here are how individual skills with Coach Robinson will be offered:
Stealers For Life Members:
- The goal is to offer each Stealers For Life Member two sessions per month.
- Stealers For Life Members are asked to fill out the form below concerning the better times and days to hold their sessions.
Non-Stealers For Life Members:
- If you have registered for a package of ten or twenty skills before August 2023, the goal is to get your daughter in one or two sessions per month depending on the package you have.
- Non-Stealers For Life Members are asked to fill out the form below concerning the better times and days to hold their sessions.
Guaranteed Four Sessions / Month (limited reservations available):
- Some would like to have four sessions (or more) per month (meaning 1-2 sessions per month depending on their package and then an additional 2-3 on top of that).
- That request can happen, but when we get to school ball season (November-March) we will to work on scheduling sessions about a month ahead of time due to Coach R’s high school practice and game schedule and weather.
- Also, there are only so many hours in a day and only so many days in a week to get all of the skills in, so there will be limited reservations for the additional skills.
- Four sessions per month will place you over the yearly allotted amount. Instead of paying $25.00 / session for the additional sessions per month, the cost will be reduced if you register/pay ahead of time (see below). That will allow Coach Robinson to know that the session won’t be canceled (unless of course there is an emergency, sickness or weather situations).
- How do you determine what the difference per month is from your Stealers For Life or Non-Stealers For Life package to get four sessions per month? Email Coach Robinson for the amount of skills you have signed up for through your Stealers For Life or Non-Stealers For Life package.
Discounted Packages (limited, seven packages left):
- For additional sessions over your two sessions per month (good for those who have a Stealer For Life or Non-Stealers For Life Package only), please use the following to register:
- One more additional session / month for six months: ($18/seession): $108.00
- One more additional session / month for twelve months ($16/session): $192.00
