NTL's Skills & Scrimmage clinics are the the practice sessions that come closest to mirroring what happens at a college basketball practice (minus the maniacal coach). Individual skills needs are assessed and addressed through drillwork and feedback and instruction from the coach. It's intended to be sequential and developmental, building on skills from week to week. Scrimmages are extensions of the drills: the idea is to implement what you worked on in the drills in the scrimmages. Try something new. Fail and try again. I mean failing at something is a great way to learn. We love it when things go wrong: it means players are trying something new and if they try enough, they'll gain a new skill. (How's that lefthand dribble move coming along? We are ready for you.)

“Sunday morning intermediate class – each NTL class I take I pick up one or two little things that improve my game in a way I never thought about. My first NTL session I learned to shoot left handed layups which opened up 50% more of the court to me. Not long after that I learned how to come off screens and found that by watching how my defender plays me, I could get wide open every time. Another great lesson was on how wide open you usually become when you set a screen in the low post as long as you look for the ball after screening. Another class we learned about how someone could be wide open even though he had a defender close by if that defender wasn’t looking at the ball. Maybe you knew all these things, but come to the class and you’ll find out for yourself how much a good coach will improve your game. “

NTL Shoot! (Count it. Analyze it. Improve it.) (BOS)

$100.00$200.00

Mondays. Beginning January 5
(10 weeks: $200)
(*special pricing: $100 – if purchased along with another like or higher priced clinic!)

Analytics, say hello to NTL! It has long been understood that to get better at shooting, you need to shoot. Get up shots. The old saw holds true: “the difference between a good shooter and a great shooter? About 250 shots a day.” We’ll your day is a Monday night, starting January 5. You will shoot copious numbers of shots from various spots on the floor, we’ll spreadsheet them, put them on a basketball shot chart, admire the progress like never before. Your greatest challenge will be to remain humble, to continue to relate to your family and friends as you did before, before you became a great shooter.

“This program is a great combination of Coach Steve Bzomowski’s incomparable teaching of individual skills and simple, yet complicated looking, team play, followed by a high energy, competitive scrimmage to put those two components into practice. Even though I am one of the most senior and least athletic members of the class, Steve’s instruction gives me the skills and the smarts to be able to hold my own and become a better player. I learn a new thing every class and that alone is worth the price. “

Curtis Hall is the beating heart of Boston basketball. A third floor gym, with a shiny new floor and NBA type backboards. Even though it's a touch on the short side, it's a gym that expects your best effort. The participants in this clinic come to learn and come to play. The scrimmages are always a nice extension of the drills and everyone seeks to make, recognize, and acknowledge a good play. We always look forward to coaching the Tuesday night clinic. It's been a great one for years. (Open to Intermediate and higher level players only!)

Fall/Winter 2015 Play Forever League (PFL)
(13 weeks plus Draft Day: $200 – or $160 for players signed up for some other Fall/Winter NTL Clinic)

A league for players who want a no-hassle, well-organized, professionally run, totally fun and competitive basketball experience. Appropriate for high novice through low advanced men and women adult players. (If you are really good or, worse yet, think you are really good, this probably is not the league for you. Though we have plenty of good players, they manage to remain humble and honor the effort and desire of others.) Come to Draft Day (Saturday, 09/19/15), show us what you got, or don't got, and we place you on a team. (But sign-up beforehand; the league always sells out.) Players can request 1 or 2 or 3 specific teammates, but every effort is made to create teams of equal strength. Players receive numbered jerseys or shirts. We print full and accurate software generated NCAA-type box scores with field goals, free throws, three-pointers [made and attempted], rebs [off. and def.], assists, turnovers, blocks, steals, fouls and minutes played to distribute at game's end. Cumulative season's team and individual stats (example) are kept as well. Referee and electronic scoreboard. 10 regular season games and 3 playoff games for all ten teams. Ball movement, team play, equal playing time, and competitive but sportsmanlike spirit are emphasized.

It all comes down to execution; having a plan and learning as a group how to put that plan into a well functioning reality. At “Coached Scrimmage” we give you the plan and stay on you week after week, whether winning the scrimmages or losing, to read the defense, take care of the ball and execute more effectively. Defensively we challenge you to understand the impact you can have on the game when you dictate play. I mean you can sit back and react, but how does that make the world a better place? Let's learn how we can get the job done, and have fun doing it. (Open to hi-Novice through Advanced and strictly limited to the first 20 players.)

You are playing and you feel like you are definitely doing some things well. But there's that feeling, that knowledge that there exists a gap between you and the really good player, a gap that is not explained merely by size or athleticism. Coach Fagan knows well the difference between you and them and will show you how and what to practice to close the gap.

“There simply is no other adult instructional basketball program like NTL in NYC. I didn’t grow up playing basketball so I was thrilled to find classes that taught adults the basics. How much do I love NTL? Well it’s been over 10+years since my first class and I’m still enrolled! Not only has NTL given me the confidence and training to play in different leagues around the city, but I’ve made life long friends here. No matter what level of play, NTL has something for everyone. The beginner’s class in Brooklyn is a supportive and encouraging environment for those who want to learn the fundamentals at a slower pace. The Skills & Scrimmage sessions are where you’ll review proper footwork, learn to read your defender, and move with or without the ball. It will elevate your game and make you a star in your next league game. Maybe you wanted to play HS or College basketball and now seek a competitive March-Madness-like scenario. The Coached Scrimmage class is just that. Be part of a team, learn your coach’s plays and execute! And if that’s still not enough basketball, sign up for the NTL camps where you can eat, sleep, and dream basketball all weekend long!”
