We recognize the need for individual skills training to be part of any excellent travel program. We also understand that there is a difference between training and coaching. We want to do the best we can for all of our players. This Spring we are partnering with some of the top trainers and coaches in the New York area to bring the best to our players. We have entered agreements with Crown Basketball (Nassau based teams) and Rossetti Basketball (Suffolk based teams) to provide group and team training. In addition, we have hired Coach Joe Nesci who coached at NYU for over three decades. These trainers will be present at practices to work with Lightning players to improve both their individual and team skills. This training will be in addition to the excellent coaching provided by each and every Lightning coach. We view this as a “Win-WIN” situation of receiving both training and game experience. Our goal is always to continue to improve as an organization in our dedication to all of our players.
