With the COVID-19 pandemic, we know many practices, tournaments, and basketball activities are being canceled or postponed. In the meantime, the Timberwolves & Lynx Basketball Academy can help your players continue their skill development at home, have fun, and compete with each other remotely. We are partnering with the Jr. NBA and HomeCourt to provide additional levels of activity and engagement to keep your child continuing to elevate the way they play while they are home. See below for details.
Starting Monday March 30th, we will introduce a FREE live daily virtual training program called Academy at Home. The program will be led by our dynamic Academy Coaching staff and consist of basketball skill and strength and conditioning workouts that players can follow at home, in the basement or anywhere else where they can play safely.
Our virtual training program will be offered live on Monday – Friday at 11:30AM and 4:30PM. Our first week sessions will be led by Coaches Robert Ware, Thomas Gorilla, Courtney B, Adam Kado and David Shaw.

The Timberwolves are excited to team up with HomeCourt to as a way for players to engage with us! HomeCourt uses just your iPhone or iPad to capture and analyze how you play—from your shots, to your dribbling, to your movements. (Unfortunately Android is currently unavailable but will be offered in the future.) Integrating NBA-backed instruction with engaging, guided workouts powered by AI, you’ll learn new skills in a way that feels less like training and more like a video game. This is the most revolutionary basketball training app we have ever seen! Click here to see my test run of the #StayInTheGame ball-handling challenge.
HomeCourt is being offered completely FREE until the end of April. Join the Timberwolves & Lynx Basketball Academy team at the link here and you will be eligible to win a Timberwolves & Lynx gear pack! We’ll challenge each other and to improve our game, have fun and stay active together.
