We are no longer taking online registrations for this workshop.

For 32 years, Beyond Basketball has been the go-to workshop for “hoop-o-philes” of all ages and skill levels.

Starting with one-on-none drills, the on-court activities advance to one-on-one, two-on-two, etc., until we move into full-court games of five-on-five.

Join coleaders Charley Rosen, one-time CBA coach, and Scott Wedman, two-time NBA All-Star, to build skills for every aspect of the game—including motion and balance, coordinated group movement, friendly competition without anger and aggression, and methods of bringing principles of structured basketball into street games.

Off the court, sessions concentrate on mindfulness, unselfishness, and the development of individual skills that are necessary for players and teams to achieve maximum success and enjoyment.

Beyond Basketball is for basketball lovers in good physical condition who are ready to learn to play better hoops. All you bring are your sneakers and a passion for the game.
