Skills Development

In an effort to serve our Jr. Eagles Basketball players during this unique time, we have developed some training lessons for the players. Whether you have a basketball goal in your driveway or have space in the driveway or garage, we’re hopeful the players will find something here to fulfill their desire to be in and around the game of basketball.

Additionally, take a look at the HomeCourt App.  This app is offering a FREE service thru the end of April to help players “Stay in the game”. It’s normally a $7.99/mo service to access the premium features. Once on the App, we invite the players to join our Liberty Eagles community on the App. It does require the use of a smartphone or tablet.

That being said, here are a variety of skill development / practice ideas that don’t require any interaction with the HomeCourt App.


Purpose: To learn and improve on ball handling and dribbling skills anytime, anywhere.

Instructions:  Pick any three from Group A, Group B and Group C.  Each skill should be practiced in sets of 50 repititions.

Next Day:  Choose the three you didn’t do the previous day.
