Our belief is that success as a basketball player requires consistent, year-round dedication to mastering the basic skills of shooting and ball handling and then melding those skills into the game. Gym Ratz was built on this philosophy and is why you will find enough baskets and ball handling areas to allow players to come in and, with or without instruction, get an effective and timely workout in just 30 minutes. In just 30 minutes, players can get in up to 300 shots using our Shoot-a-Way Gun ball retrieval system. Players can also use our 94Fifty basketballs for feedback on shot arc, shot release speed and ball rotation to hone in on becoming a pure shooter as well as to improve their ball handling skills.
Our gym is equipped with five baskets on which players can work on their shooting. Two are equipped with the Shoot-a-Way gun ball retrieval system to aid in maximum shots per minute (up to 300 per 30 minute session) and two are equipped with standard ball retrievals. As an option, players can also use one of the 94Fifty balls for shot arc and other feedback.
In addition to shot arc feedback, Gym Ratz also uses the 94Fifty ball to measure players’ dribbling skills, providing each player a path to becoming a more effective and confident ball handler.
Coaches offer players instruction dependent on each player’s skill level and coach them in how to use their skills at game speed, enabling players to incorporate their skills into real game action. Group instruction is limited to five or fewer players in order for everyone in the group to get the reps they need to improve. Individual instruction will focus on improving upon that player’s development needs and building upon their strengths to give them the edge they need to be successful.
