6 Week Midwest Basketball Training Program

Thursday July 22nd - Thursday August 26th

MBT is focused on building relationships through the game of basketball. Through those relationships we are able to instill confidence in every player we work with taking their game to the next level one step at a time without skipping any steps. We provide positive mentors in each kid’s life by holding them accountable. We tell them what they need to hear instead of what they want to hear.

It is important with every player we train that we provide a customized plan while setting realistic and measurable goals. We believe it is important to connect with the player’s coach or parent to learn more about each athlete we train to provide a more productive workout. We pride ourselves in skills/drills that translate to game action progression by progression. Learn the skill - perfect the skill at full speed - full speed with a defender - full speed with defenders making a decision.

Daniel Makepeace Pure Intensity Camp

Saturday August 28th 2021

Pure Intensity Basketball prides itself on holding the most progressive, intense mini-camps and clinics in Minnesota. These events are opportunities for boys and girls to learn the game of basketball at a more advanced level! Those who attend an event will receive the best instruction from skilled trainers who have experience playing and coaching at the collegiate and professional levels. All drills implemented are progressive: beginner to advanced players welcome.

When a player comes to one of our mini-camps or clinics, they experience much of the same advanced teaching and instruction offered to elite High School All-American, NCAA, and NBA/WNBA players, but broken down progressively so every player in attendance can handle our methods. Our first-class events promise to be the most innovative and skill development driven experiences offered in the Midwest. Our events are typically kept small with a premium on individual attention and repetition.
