LESSON LEVELS
Which level lesson should you sign your son or daughter up for?

We have put together a reference key below to help. Even if you have been involved in United Sports Academy Basketball Lessons before, it is important that you read through the following description of the levels and sign your athlete up for the one that fits his or her age/grade and experience at the current time. It is important that athletes have a thorough understanding of the basic fundamentals of the specific skill being taught at an age/skill appropriate level before signing up for a more advanced class. Our coaching staff will let athletes know if they feel it would be beneficial for an athlete to be in a lesson above their actual age/grade level.

BEGINNER TRAINING: Athletes in 3rd - 6th Grade. Athletes in this group are new to basketball and still working on the basic fundamentals, such as dribbling, form shooting and basic attack moves.

INTERMEDIATE TRAINING: Athletes in 7th – 12th Grade. Athletes in this group should have previous basketball lesson training and/or some club experience. This level would also include athletes in Grades 9th - 12th who do not have club experience or lesson training.

ADVANCED TRAINING: Athletes in high school, college or upper level. Must have minimum high school varsity playing experience and/or coaches' recommendation. Must be conditioned enough to work for one hour of high intensity training. 

Please email Sheila Adams at sadams@usportsacad.com or Terry Comstock at tcomstock@usportsacad.com if you have a question about which lesson level your son or daughter should attend.
