Don't just train for skill.
Train for mindset.
"I don’t just focus on skill development. Through my sessions, I am also working with these young athletes to build resilience, mental fortitude, perspective, confidence, transferable life skills and a nurturing atmosphere to push themselves beyond comfort zones to enjoy embarking on a journey of development (with their parents) both on AND off the court."
“While working with Coach Cavell we’ve seen a dramatic increase in Sebastian’s basketball skills, and also his positive outlook. Beyond basketball, Coach Cavell seamlessly integrates lessons around positivity, effort, leadership and teamwork. The infusion of confidence and positive approach to Sebastian’s basketball game is also witnessed in his relationships with family and friends.”
Athletes are guided through a variety of situations they may face both on and off court and ways to navigate how to recover using self awareness and mental fortitude.
Basketball fundamentals are covered in each session and are tailored to the individual athletes experience/skill level.
As a former NCAA D1 and professional athlete, along with now being a professional Coach, Cavell will expose your athlete(s) to advanced skills in order to increase their confidence on the court.
Playing Through Mistakes
"Mistakes only make us better."
Many athletes struggle with working and playing through mistakes. During each session this valuable skill of resilience will be touched on in order to develop well rounded, positive athletes/individuals and great team players!
Mobility, Stability & Agility
The work that no one talks about. Athletes will be guided through JOGA (athletic yoga) movements (which is used widely across the NBA) to increase their mobility and stability in order to reduce/prevent common basketball related injuries.
