NYC Basketball Kids Jerian Grant Clinic Review

by NYC Basketball on

Saturday’s clinic with New York Guard, Jerian Grant, was nothing short of amazing! We had a small group, but every camper there worked hard, listened to the coaches and absolutely learned something.

As usual, we started the day with some dynamic stretches and warming up led by our Head Coach, Gigi Brown. This is the most important part of every workout. Making sure your body is stretched and ready to be active is the key to Success!

Push ups! Necessary for building that upper body strength. Stronger upper body= shooting further. Every drill and exercise we do at camp is building towards a particular goal.

Dribbling drills were next. Stationary and moving. Developing a strong dribble form can be worked on at any age. No matter how good you think you are, there is always somebody out there working on their game and getting better.

We took a quick break from the drills to have a Q & A with Jerian. There were some awesome questions asked by the kids, including “Who were you idols growing up?” “How did you feel in your first game with the Knicks?” “What do you need to work on to become a better player?” Jerian answered everyone of them, Including the question about how many broken ankles he has gotten over the years. Answer: A lot.

During the last portion of our clinic, we worked on shooting. Lay ups and jump shots. Worked on the fundamentals of shooting: hand placement, shot form, feet placement and balance. Repetition is key for shooting. Once you understand the correct formula for shooting, practice that formula day and night and you will become a force to be reckoned with.


Thanks again for everybody who joined us on saturday! It was an absolute blast and I can’t wait until our next clinic with Jerian.
