Evaluate

The Staff at the bridge academy has over 100 combined years of college experience and will evaluate each player.

We will be evaluating

  • Athleticism

Teach

What SEPARATES the Bridge academy is the staffs ability to communicate the game. we will implement offenses versus man DEFENSE and zone defenses. will will teach how to play man to man defense and the basics of zone defense. we will teach an entire system so the players are prepares to perform at the highest level at tournaments in front of college coaches. This will also prepare them to play and understand the game at a college level.

Exposure

one of the main goals of the bridge academy is to expose our players to as many college coaches as we can, as it is imperative to college placement. In order to be recruited coaches need to know how good one is. we will bring in college coaches during the week to observe individual practice and team workouts. with the staffs extensive network of connections the players will be seen by a variety of college coaches from all levels of collegiate play beore they even participate in tournament play.

We will attend a tournament that coaches from schools at all levels of college basketball will be attending.

Placement

After the tournaments have been played the Bridge academy will take the time to speak and visit with coaches about the players. due to the experience of the staff, we will be able to discern what programs will be best suited for each player. we will assist in with recruitment of each player as well as make sure the paperwork for admission and ELIGIBILITY is correctly completed. The Bridge Academy's goal is to get all the players that attend placed in schools across america. WE want to see our players succeed not only on the court but in the classroom.
