with Jackie Ansley, CEO, Owner and Performance Coach of Performance Training Inc.;

WNBA Strength Coach Jackie Ansley helps you develop the athleticism of your players in a presentation packed with strategies from her own experience. You'll learn basketball-specific drills that can be performed on a court to train the athletic movements behind multiple facets of the game.
Vertical Strength & Explosion:
Using basic squat, lunge, and box jump movements, Coach Ansley shows how players can develop the power in their legs needed to play above the rim. She leads players through a challenging workout on the basketball court using resistance bands, platforms and medicine balls.
Basketball is a game that requires solid, explosive side-to-side movements, especially on the defensive end of the court. This series of drills builds players' ability to move in the defensive stance. Skate Jumps is a great drill to train the explosiveness needed to cut off dribble penetration with the first step while still being able to quickly react to a crossover move.
Speed, Agility, Quickness:
Help your players develop the footwork necessary for the quick changes of direction and sharp angles performed by great basketball players. This series of drills uses ladders and cones to improve speed, agility and quickness. With the Square Drill, you can condition players to quickly change speed and direction in a variety of athletic movements like sprints and shuffles.
The exercises in this presentation will enable any basketball coach to develop a program that can improve the athleticism of players without the need for regular access to a weight room.
