Specialized: Centers and Forwards Front Court Skill Development


Over the past 13 years Virginia Elite has developed a successful pattern for developing FRONT COURT players, which many have gone on to play college basketball.

The Front Court Camp program is designed based on years of experience and developing elite level Front Court players. We understand through experience that player development is more than dribbling a ball around chairs or conducting shooting drills without a purpose and expected results. Our unique program is designed to fully develop an athletes’ overall performance to enhance their ability to perform.  Combination training techniques are instructed to enhance players abilities to give them confidence and provide preventative measures for extended endurance. 

** Front Court Camp is be a 1 day session that will focus on the development, fundamentals and advancements of playing in the "PAINT". The camp will be instructed by coaches that have played the position at the elite level. 

Our program covers shooting Mechanics (off catch, off dribble), Footwork, Shooting, Dribble Separation, Weak Hand Development, Finishing, Advanced Dribble Scoring Methods, Moving Without the Ball, Post and Perimeter Work, Triple Threat Separation, Footwork, Seeing the Floor, Physical and Muscle Conditioning, Defensive Work, Team Chemistry, Leadership, Basketball IQ, and much more. 

Position Description


(1) Small Forward (2) Power Forward and (3) Center are collectively designated as a basketball team’s frontcourt. Typically, these players play near the baseline, which is the out-of-bounds line under each basket.

On offense, these players constantly move from one side of the key to the other in an attempt to free themselves to take an open shot. When used in relation to these players, the term frontcourt usually refers to their offensive responsibilities, but also carries implications to the players they defend. 


The expectation of our training program is to prepare every player to make their middle school, high school, and most of all increase their ability to excel on the basketball court.  Our program takes in account preventative measures to ensure players are capable of playing high level basketball. Our CERTIFIED coaches are the best at what we do.
