As we emerge from a global pandemic, we look towards 2022 with hope and expectation. The last two years have been undeniably tough for every single one of us andFastBreak is truly grateful and thankful to those who have supported us through this tough time. We also would like to give a warm welcome to those who are new and have just joined the family, as well as others who would potentially be joining us in this upcoming year.
On this note, we would like to take this time to explain what we do and who we are here at FastBreak. Our programs can be broken down into 3 parts; Weekday, Saturday and Sunday sessions.
Weekday sessions at FastBreak are predominantly focused on developing the individual skills of our players. No matter the level of the player, we aim to develop and improve all facets of their game. Players should look forward to developing areas of their game such as dribbling with confidence, shooting more efficiently, defending dynamically, and passing with precision.
While the main focus of these sessions is to develop individual skill, we also begin to integrate these skills into game scenarios in order for our players to transition into team play with greater ease.
The skills learnt in these sessions are essential in developing high-level basketball players who are able to shine as individuals and as team players.
Saturday sessions are exclusively for team practices. During these sessions teams will get to work with their coach on offensive and defensive strategies and principles.
Our guiding belief at FastBreak is that basketball is a team-first game and in order to be a successful player you must commit to being a great teammate. Thus, we believe these sessions are of extreme importance for our players as this is their chance to work with one another as a team, build chemistry, and learn team concepts.
Players must be willing to commit to these 2-hour practices in order to play in our competitive league games. With this commitment we are able to ensure all players are on the same page and we can maximize their opportunity for team success.
While our Saturday sessions are primarily focused on team concepts and strategy, players will also be able to take away a deeper understanding of the importance of teamwork and how to succeed in a team environment.
Sundays consist of league play in the newly formed Singapore Premier Basketball League which FastBreak co-administers. Concepts and plays learnt on Saturdays are cemented in these competitive settings.
Players are expected to arrive half an hour before game time to prepare for the game.
We also utilize the Hudl Video Analysis system for our higher division teams in which each individual player's statistics as well as game play are analyzed and sent to each player to review by themselves after the game.
