We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports Regulators Travel Basketball Program began its first virtual practice last Friday. We W.I. L.L. Thru Sports will continue to host these virtual basketball practices every Friday night. During this power hour, you will be jumping, dribbling, and sweating for sure! Most importantly, you and the coaches will be having fun while engaging in healthy activities.
Depending on the grade level, students and their parents will be joining our one-hour session at 5 pm, 6 pm, or 7 pm. Please, take note of our flyer above for further details and visit our previous Regulators post. Feel free to share it with others and click here to read more about our programs.
First Regulators Basketball Virtual Practice
Here’s how our very first online Regulators Basketball practice went:
Video and Discussion
To kick off each session, Coach Perez showed an inspirational video of Kobe Bryant. Many of the youth look up to this phenomenal athlete who may be gone but will never be forgotten. After the video, a brief discussion took place.
In addition to this, our young participants also expressed their agreement with Kobe Bryant’s mindset and his well-known MAMBA mentality. One of them even reminded the coaches about how hard work pays off. Always!
Physical activity and mindfulness
As each session quickly progressed, coaches moved into the physical workout phase of the session. This included strength and conditioning exercises, dribbling drills, and ball handling. The dribbling drills and exercises helped to get the participants’ heart rates up.
In addition to this, throughout the workout, our coaches also rotated on monitoring the screen and guiding students. They corrected and taught different techniques as the students watched through the camera.
Moreover, the participants were also given short breaks to catch their breaths and drink some water. After the breaks ended, everyone went right back to practice once again. Each session closed with the coaches and students cooling down by sparing a minute for mindfulness.
When will the next practice session be held?
The next We W.I.L.L. Thru Sports Regulator Basketball Practice will be held on Friday, March 5th, 2021; same time, same platform. Again, check out the flyer above for details. If there are any questions or comments, do not hesitate to contact us.
