About the event

All-round excellence requires 3 skills - Technical skills, Athletic/physical skills, and a 3rd skill for space manipulation.

  • We play to grow the 3rd skill for all-round excellence.

The 3rd skill requires us to hold a 3rd person view (bird's eye view) in the mind's eye. A big picture of how all objects in that space are moving relative to each other. To make a micro decision and then hesitate - often just for a milli second - and use the 3rd person mind's eye to see what impact the micro decision had on space and adjust the next micro decision accordingly. We create a ripple of movement. A dance of space between us. A flow, a pattern emerges as we achieve something we can't yet see.

What players and parents think

  • We went to the most amazing basketball session in  Hemel at Longdean school. My son is autistic and has ADHD he struggles  to follow instruction and is extremely demand avoidant. This session  took all the barriers away for my son and he had the most amazing time,  his words “I loved it”. Well worth checking out
  • A young players - "I like Jon’s sessions because instead of telling us what to do we all just work it out ourselves"
  • A parent - "It’s refreshing to see someone run a sports session with a focus on kindness and flexibility instead of adherence to set patterns based on traditional ways of learning. We have always been made to feel welcome and encouraged to participate and my children gain confidence by being part of something that requires teamwork. As an observer, I enjoy seeing the players thinking about not just themselves but the whole team. It’s not about just playing ball, it’s about creative thinking, consideration of others and teamwork"
