Five DARE2BGREAT Basketball Training Sessions with Rodney Headley Sr.: This is a No-Nonsense Training Program designed to get your child ready to play at the next level. We do this with rigorous trainings, practices that demand accountability, film room, strength training, exposure to different styles of play, basketball language and IQ, and best of all, having fun while acquiring winning ways on and off the court. Rod Headley Sr. was an assistant coach for the Peekskill Red Devils boys basketball team and an assistant to the girls varsity team as well. During his 14 years at Peekskill up until he founded Dare 2B Great he accumulated 4 NYSPHSAA (State Championships). He also was a part of that same management team that won two Federation Titles, beating all parochial, private, and public schools in 2005 and 2006, along with several Sectional, Division, and Regional titles. Between 2010 and 2013 he successfully ran the Peekskill Red Devil Basketball Clinic, training hundreds of children between the ages of 8 and 15 to play the game of basketball. You can have your child and four friends participate in a group session with Rodney, or your child can participate in five individual sessions. Restrictions: Must be 12 to 17 years of age, and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over 18. Trainings will take place at 850 Wolcott in Beacon, NY. VALUE: $150, available for $50.
