Ball Handling

Ball Handling is more about technique than flash, and full of details that often go unnoticed, making the skill of ball handling one of the most allusive skills to transfer to the game itself. The I’m Possible Training Ball Handling course is designed to unveil the five levels of ball handling development so a trainer can properly address every skill player’s need to handle the ball at a higher level.

This credential is earned through the purchase and study of the I’m Possible Ball Handling Textbook and the passing of the Ball Handling online test.


Playmaker

Point Guard play has often been minimized to a textbook style definition and a variety of opinions regarding what point guards actually are. I’m Possible’s Playmaker course skips over the philosophical debate that pigeonholes players into positions and focuses on the skills that make up great play makers on the basketball court. The Playmaker course equips trainers with the knowledge needed to teach play making at a whole new level.

This credential is earned through the purchase and study of the Playmaker Textbook and the passing of the Playmaker online test.


Finishing

The I’m Possible Finishing course breaks down finishing into four crucial developmental layers: Feet, hands, athleticism, and game simulation. From different ways to finish off one foot, to the multiple approaches to finishing off two feet, every skill of finishing is ultimately connected to the athletic components needed to find game success.

This credential is earned through a custom application and video submission process:

  1. Access video by Micah Lancaster on the subject of finishing.
  2. Video Submission: Two drills to develop a player’s feet for finishing at the basket.
  3. Video Submission: Two drills to develop a player’s hands for finishing at the basket.
  4. Video Submission: Two drills to develop a player’s athletic ability at the rim.

Shooting Form

Attempting to fit every player inside the typical shooting textbook “box” has produced poor results, leaving the world dumfounded regarding why so many players lack the ability to shoot. The I’m Possible Training Shooting Form course removes the one-size fits all textbook and simplifies the process of shot development. In this course, trainers will learn the process behind using primary and secondary principles to give players the flexibility they need to develop a comfortable and effective shooting stroke regardless of their size or body type.

This credential is earned through a custom application and video submission process:

  1. Access video by Micah Lancaster on the subject of shooting form.
  2. Video Submission: Five drills to develop secondary shooting principles.
  3. Video Submission: Five drills to develop primary shooting principles.
  4. Video Submission: Explanation of shooting philosophy.


Shooting Footwork

Footwork is often taught to players as universal principles when in fact various footwork can be right and wrong at different times and for different players. That’s why the I’m Possible’s Shooting Footwork course is not designed to teach THE correct footwork for shooting, but rather address ALL the different footwork available to players according to player comfort level and game situations.

This credential is earned through a custom application and video submission process:

  1. Access video by Micah Lancaster on the subject of shooting footwork.
  2. Video Submission: Three drills on squared feet concepts.
  3. Video Submission: Three drills on “unsquared” feet concepts.
  4. Video Submission: Three drills on various shooting footwork.


Offensive Footwork

The most in-depth look at offensive footwork ever compiled, I’m Possible’s Offensive Footwork course brings trainers through a complete footwork study. The Offensive Footwork course breaks down footwork from a whole new perspective – using camera angles and videos from underneath the floor to highlight the smallest of details that often go unnoticed.

This credential is earned through a weekend spent at the I’m Possible Fieldhouse.

  1. Intensive film sessions and footwork study with Micah Lancaster.
  2. On course demonstrations revealing your ability to teach ten offensive footwork concepts.


Post Play

The “Post Game” has evolved over the years, moving away from the typical back to the basket player and turning more attention to giving all players more offensive weapons. Still, I’m Possible Training’s famous approach goes unchanged. Rather than teaching the correct way to play the position, the I’m Possible Post Play Course will unveil ALL the skills that can be required to play the position. From old school to new school, no rocks are left unturned as “Post Play” is broken down like never before!

This credential is earned through a custom application and video submission process:

  1. Access video by Micah Lancaster on the subject of post play.
  2. Video Submission: Three drills on post moves.
  3. Video Submission: Two drills on post specific ball handling.
  4. Video Submission: Three drills on post specific perimeter skills.

This credential is earned through the purchase and study of the I’m Possible Game Consultant Textbook and the passing of the Game Consultant online test.
