Unlimited Potential Basketball is happy to announce that we are launching our virtual shooting course via the UPB Training app this Friday, November 25th. This five week shooting course is made for athletes who are not able to come into the facility to train in person and for those who want to get better in their game at any time from anywhere.

This app and shooting course was designed by NBA Player Development Coach and UPB’s very own Coach Packie Turner. In the app, users will be led by Coach Packie and the UPB staff through instructional videos with each workout being fully broken down so athletes will be able to master each drill before moving on to the next. The in-depth instruction and training is designed to improve an athlete’s game and give athletes confidence to become a scorer. 

In the five week shooting course, there will be sessions for five days out of the week that focus on shooting fundamentals. In these sessions, instructional videos will go over form shooting, one dribble pull ups, jump shots, catch and shoot, and much more. The drills that are featured in the course are the same workouts Coach Packie uses for the NBA and WNBA Stars including Oklahoma City Thunder’s Jalen Williams and New York Liberty’s Sabrina Ionescu. 

“The app is a great opportunity for young athletes to get to work with the UPB staff remotely,” Player Development Coach DyShawn Hobson said. “We are excited to connect and work with athletes through the app that do not have the opportunity to train at the facility.”

Hobson explained that in the course, athletes through the app will get the same type of instruction athletes receive in a private one-on-one in person session with Coach Packie and the rest of the UPB staff. Athletes will be receiving the same types of breakdowns on the drills including proper ways to engage footwork into jumpshot and tips on how to shoot off the dribble. Athletes will also be able to send videos through the app directly to Coach Packie and receive personal feedback and tips on how to improve.

The UPBTraining app and shooting course is not only for active athletes, but also good for parents and current basketball coaches. The shooting course is a beneficial way for individuals to to learn the proper terminology and the proper technique of the game of basketball.

UPB is excited to officially launch our shooting course in four days! You can click here for more information about the app as well as purchase it on our official launch day this Friday! The Shooting Course will be available for $49 during our Holiday Sale. We thank the UPB community for all of its support, and we look forward to seeing our athletes continue progress in their game whether that is in person or over our app.

“Obviously, the process of being drafted was incredible and indescribable,” Williams said. “Now, playing with such a young team, we all get along so well. It's made the transition really easy. Just because we're all able to learn together. So it's been fun, just trying to embrace every part of it.”
