Started in Summer 2016 . The purpose of Slinky Academy is to provide the opportunity to learn from a professional athlete that has played on all levels of the game . Learning how to play basketball later than most athletes playing the game today gave me the mentality to grind and workout with great trainers and coaches, I want to be able to do the same for athletes ;To be an inspiring source for athletes by providing individual and / or group skills development training.
Recap from the first Slinky Academy presented by NYG Hoops in Syracuse, NY.
" I had the opportunity to work with talented girls from 7th - 11th grade , and it was such a good experience. The girls responded well to the training that was offered to them . They also worked with "Team Footprintz" , a well-known training program from Queens, NY . I also train with Team Footprintz during my off season, so I knew they would provide the best service for the girls at my event. "
