Basketball Skills Academy

Sportika HoopNation Skills Academy is a year-round skills training program that develops players of all ages and skill levels. Sportika Hoop Nation Basketball Training offers athletes multiple different trainers that specialize in the skills needed for optimal performance.  Our trainers have both played professional and college basketball, and have trained college/professional athletes.  While most players and trainers work solely on muscle memory, we also use mental techniques to stand out from traditional basketball trainers. Our team has done extensive research, study and application of mental memory and have come to the conclusion that in addition to muscle memory, mental memory (imagination and visualization) must be used to perform at an optimum level, and leads to the development of what we call “Basketball IQ”.

The Academy uses cutting edge techniques for developing young athletes of varying skill level and goals.  Our program focuses on the development of ballhandling, shooting, passing, rebounding, defense and game situations.  Our trainers help break down the fundamentals, so youth players can understand and apply their training in game situations.
