It starts with one girl

You may or may not have heard of our slogan, "it starts with one girl". If you haven't let me explain...

It starts with one girl means that every day at FAST, we are coaching, educating, mentoring, and encouraging girls from 3rd grade through 12th grade to reach higher, push harder, be stronger, and shoot for their dreams. To accomplish our goals it takes coaches who are invested in this vision and it takes corporations who also believe in this mission! If you haven't heard, we are currently fundraising for courts and hoops for our own facility. Corporations who believe in our objective of empowering girls are vital to our success! 

Today we are proud to announce that a family favorite ECKRICH Meats has become our exclusive sponsor for our Performance Training space.  The FAST family and FAST girls are grateful and excited to partner with a company like ECKRICH. Their donation and sponsorship brings us one step closer to our goal of a FAST girls training facility. 

Success is an attitude, a mindset, a decision, a commitment, a promise. A belief that it can be done, should be done and WILL be done

Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

One of phrases you will hear over and over at our skill clinics is "Game Speed" or "Game Intensity". As coaches we cannot stress this enough when our players are working their way through open court moves, stationary ball handling, or passing drills. I have seen how hard it is for our younger players to transition to the next level / age group when it comes to the speed of the game. There will always be a learning curve when a player jumps up to a new level but if a player is training with the intensity of a game setting, the mental and physical jump will be minimized. Shorter amount of reps at a higher intensity, is much more effective when trying to master a new open court counter or move. Once a player understands the fundamentals, timing, and footwork of a new move they need to be pushed to a game speed mind set. Doing this will help players have the confidence to actually pull this new move out as a reaction, in a game setting.

Everything you want is outside your comfort zone.

Questions to ask players: When you are training, you must ask yourself if you are training with game like intensity? Are you executing with game like cuts? Are you changing tempo/pace aggressively? I remind my players to be okay with being uncomfortable. This is where players learn the most about themselves and what they are truly capable of becoming, both on and off the court.
