 CVB, Ltd. is excited to announce it will be offering a 5-week basketball player development series called "Spring Training." As our athletes evolve, we understand the importance of cross training and multi-sport participation. Our new approach is designed to assist the basketball player's off-season development while also supplementing their preparation for spring sport participation. This is an advanced model of player development and intended for those players who have previous training experience. 
      Players will have the opportunity to train in advanced basketball conditions incorporating the C.O.R.E. training model. 
      The Program will run two nights a week on Sunday/Wednesday 7-8:30 p.m. at the Gilman Street Basketball Club in Waterville starting February 25th
    . The price for this training opportunity is $200 per player for all 10 sessions or $25 for each individual session attended.   
       As always we have a limited number of slots available. This spring we have just 20 spots open to boys and girls in grades 6-12 (younger participants must be approved by Coach Staffiere). We ask that you please register for this program before Friday February 20th at 12 p.m. 


C.O.R.E Training


Developed by: Coach Tony Staffiere

By combining the elements of Conditioning, Overload, Repetition, and Elements, Coach Staffiere's C.O.R.E training program has become the area's premiere training circuit for serious basketball players. If you seek to become one of Maine's "elite" players, this training series is a MUST in your basketball preparation.

Conditioning - From the master teacher himself, Coach John Wooden, players can not learn or reduce mistakes until their bodies are in shape. The goal is to condition a player's body and mind to not only withstand a season, but also be able to outlast an opponent in the postseason when every play is magnified.

Overload - This critical principle is imperative to player development as players will often find themselves under pressure and required to make important split-second decisions. The goal is to condition players to rely on their instincts by having them multi-task during ALL drill segments.

Repetition - Elite basketball players have developed a "feel" for the game. This is rarely something they are born with and must be worked tirelessly for hours. Just like a great composer, a masterpiece is never created in just one take. The goal is to train players to enhance their "body memory" as they will utilize the practiced skills in game situations.

Elements - No game situation is ever repeated. Players must learn to handle their basketball environment. This includes fans, officials, personal fouls and changing defenses. The elite players remain consistent despite adversity or what the scoreboard reads at any given time. The goal is to challenge players to remain consistent despite the changing elements throughout the course of a game and even a season.


C.O.R.E training is designed for serious basketball players seeking to become "elite". The series focuses on individual basketball skills and basketball fitness. Coach Staffiere has coached college basketball at all collegiate levels and has trained Maine's best basketball players.
