Preseason Training Series
w/Coach Nick Pelotte

As the season quickly approaches the one skill area that separates an impact starter from the rest of their team is a player’s ability to dominate on the offensive end.  Time constraints often prevent coaches from working on individual skills during the season and players are left to “get better” simply through playing more games.  Problem is, bad habits breed bad habits and poor playing ability gets reinforced. Many players do not reach their full potential.

Designed by Waterville Boys’ Varsity coach Nick Pelotte, Becoming a Complete Offensive Player and Threat is the perfect way for players to work on their individual skills of shooting, passing, court vision, decision-making, and SCORING! Through Coach Pelotte’s training series, players become more proficient scorers and more confident offensive threats.
