Steve-2

Never Too Late® Basketball was formed in 1992 by Steve Bzomowski, former assistant basketball coach at Harvard University and NBA scout.

Since then thousands of beginning, novice, intermediate, and advanced level recreational adult players, men and women, from more than a dozen countries, plus aspiring professionals (and kids in the Parent/Kid clinics), have taken part in Never Too Late® Basketball instructional programs.

Our specialty is assessing players’ abilities, introducing them to new and improved and updated skills through drills and evaluation, all the while providing feedback and instruction.

“I never went out for basketball when I was in high school and it’s probably the thing I regretted the most…until now. I’ve been taking the intro class in Brooklyn for a few years and it’s everything I wanted in that high school team (minus the away games in the dead of winter). It’s drills and skills and a scrimmage at the end where you can break a nice sweat and try out all your new moves. Steve Fagan is great… very funny, encouraging, and astute. Thanks to him, my shot has improved (finally), I feel more confident handling the ball, and I’m starting to understand the strategy of the game, which makes it immensely more fun. There are a couple of repeat players from session to session so it’s very supportive and we’re able to see our progress from session to session.”

WHO PLAYS NTL?

We have coached players from 18 to 80 years of age with a wide range of skills and experience. Players new to the game; players who have played a fair amount but never received great coaching (or any coaching); and players who played in high school or college and like being in a structured coached environment with like-minded players all come to the NTL camps and clinics. We work with players who want to get more game.

OUR MISSION

We seek to provide the highest quality basketball training, instruction, guidance and coaching for adult players in a supportive, inclusive environment. We believe in, and never waver from, the unifying aspect of the TEAM part of basketball. Never is it more apparent that people working together accomplish so much more than when basketball, or any team sport, is played the right way. You bring your desire and spirit; we add knowledge and insight. Together we build a community of athletes of all ages with common goals and values.

“Steve had us attempting all sorts of drills: fingertip dribbling exercises, passing drills, running and looking up while dribbling, hop/skipping and dribbling, “ballet” steps in preparation for taking a layup properly, etc. etc. etc. It’s very satisfying when you acquire actual basketball skills. One thing I can say about Steve . . . extremely high degree of skill as a teacher . . . relentless, in a good way . . . also has quite the sense of humor. Can’t recommend this class enough to anyone who loves basketball and would like to get back into it or learn it as a beginner. Steve is an awesome instructor.”

NTL PLAYERS TALK THE TALK

It’s not what we have to say about ourselves, but rather what our players have to say:

Some of the… techniques I learned at the camp suddenly found their way into my game. I don’t know who was more surprised, me or the other players who were accustomed to watching me miss layups or stealing the ball from me…

I faked my man all the way to the Appalachian Trail, then tossed in a jumper that was all net. That ragged Friday night pickup game seemed light-years away.
“When I started with NTL, I didn’t know how to box out, couldn’t pass, shot freethows like Shaq, couldn’t really dribble without looking (especially left handed), and had never even tried to make a layup. Seriously – I am not exagerating! Now, I can cross over dribble and use both hands with confidence, drive to the basket, and make jumpshots with regularity. Last night in a pickup game I drove for a layup, had several assists, and boxed my man out so well that he (the top rebounder in the prior game) didn’t pull down a single rebound. NTL has improved my game too much to quantify. Coach Reid especially brings so much knowledge and experience to the program, having been an NBA player and NCAA coach for a lot of years. Though professionally he coaches really talented players, he still really seems honestly to love working with average folks and helping them improve. He’s always positive, and makes the practices a great workout and a lot of fun.”
