Basketball training program offered from June 12-Aug. 11

The ProlifIQ Training System, a basketball training program for all ages and levels for local aspiring boys and girls players, is being offered this summer. The summer training program mirrors the Prolific Prep training program.

The program is the combination of the basketball skill development from Prolific Prep Academy, mixed with the strength and conditioning of Napa Sports Association.

The ProlifIQ Training System is an all-inclusive basketball development, training program that focuses on the mind, body and skill of the clients.

The program will run from June 12 to Aug. 11, encompassing 64 total workouts over a three-month period.

“The ProlifIQ Training System is as close as you can get to mirroring the training regime of the current Prolific Prep team,” Prolific Prep founder Jeremy Russotti said. “We are extremely excited to finally be at a point where we can provide this training at the elementary, middle and high school levels. This is a big deal for us.”

Added Napa Sports Association founder Michael Quinn, “The ProlifIQ Training System model follows the 80-percent training, 20-percent playing mantra. We believe players are spending too much time on playing and not getting back to basics with proper training.”

The program offers skill training and strength and conditioning.

Families can sign up for the skill sessions or strength and conditioning classes separately.

Families can also sign up per month for each of the programs, or walk in for a daily rate.
